  • We had an amazing experience overall. We worked with Brooke and she went above and beyond helping us with food. The food tasting allowed us to try everything and narrow down what we wanted. We had vegetarian guests and were able to provide them with a great meal. Brooke worked with us to help fit things into our budget. As the wedding planning evolved we decided to add on some extra entree options, plates, glasses and linens and the process was very easy. Brooke was flexible and just sent updated invoices as we went. The catering staff were amazing and friendly serving the food the day of the wedding. We throughly enjoyed our meal and the guests loved the food. We would highly recommend Old Carolina to anyone for their wedding or event

  • We had a great experience with Old Carolina. All of our guests raved over how good the food was. The only thing I wish they would have done is when they cut our cake they didn't put any aside for us. (Our cake was special flavors and we also had a sheet cake in the back that was all one flavor we didn't get any of our display cake to take home or the grooms cake) The staff was so helpful though it truly was a great experience.

  • We hired Old Carolina for our wedding Saturday September 7th 2019 for $140 people it was FANTASTIC! Brooke the manger for catering was so helpful through the whole process and was such a pleasure to work with her. We hired Old Carolina for a Full Service and they went above and beyond our expectations. It was AMAZING! The staff was super sweet and easy to work with I didn’t have to worry about anything. We were definitely pleased and our guest kept giving us great feedback about their service! Everything tasted great as well as the service being FANTASTIC! Definitely worth the money and well worth the great experience they provided! We definitely will be recommending them to everyone we know.

  • We had Old Carolina cater our wedding, and it was some of the vest food I've ever had! We did a buffet style, and everything was still hot when it was being served! They definitely don't skimp out on portion sizes either, and allowed people to get seconds after everyone was served. We got the pulled pork, chicken breast, green beans, Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, corn bread, and salad. Everything was delicious! We got plenty of food boxed for us to take home, and they also gave us a tins of each of the BBQ sauces as well! Our context was Brooke Guiley, and she was very nice and extremely helpful!

  • We had our outdoor June wedding catered by Old Carolina and were so happy with our choice. They were easy to work with and were great at communicating through email and over the phone. The day of the wedding, the staff was helpful & accommodating to the rainy weather. The food was DELICIOUS - so many of our guests reached out to us to let us know how good it was. Old Carolina has several vegetarian/vegan/gluten free options as well.

  • My daughter loves anything and everything barbecue, so when we saw Old Carolina Barbecue on the preferred vendor list at our wedding venue, we were eager to give them a try. Leslianne was a dream to work with, so professional and responsive. She invited us to a taste-testing evening, and once we tried the food, we were completely hooked. We are still receiving compliments about how good the food was five weeks after the wedding. The Old Carolina BBQ team worked together like a well-oiled machine, cheerfully and quickly serving everyone, answering questions, and helping wherever possible. And when dinner was over, they dismantled the buffet so quickly and quietly that nobody even realized they'd done it unless they happened to look over and see that it was gone! We could not have been more pleased with them and will highly recommend them to anyone seeking delicious food, great service and a lot of very happy wedding guests.

  • Old Carolina BBQ definitely stepped up and took on a challenge. I has spoken with the catering manager, who no longer works there, about a year and a half prior to my wedding. He made promises, gave us quotes, and we put the deposit down. Then, time goes by, and 2.5 weeks or so before my wedding, I call to confirm the number of people and the final price with them. The staff informed me that the catering manager I had worked with no longer was employed there, they had NO RECORD of our event, and I would have to call back to speak with upper management. After some internal freaking out, I spoke with Mark, the general manager of the store. He was very nice, very helpful, and promised me that he and his team would perform and deliver every promise the previous catering manager had agreed to. I had to admit, I was nervous they were not going to show up the day of. But right on time, Mark, personally came to work my event, and his team arrived and began working right away. They were profess... Read more

  • They were happy to accommodate our needs (specific food requests, eco-friendly materials, etc.) and the food was DELICIOUS! I heard from several guests it was the best wedding food they've ever tasted! Set up and tear down was seamless and we have zero complaints!
