  • We were required by our venue to use Catering by the Family and it made sense based on the service and food they provided! Sandy was great to work with and very helpful starting with our tasting to working with our budget, modifying the bar and more. The food was delicious and all of the staff were friendly and efficient. Catering by the Family is a great catering company; highly recommend!

  • A great experience and very tasty! The only issues was that one of our food items was not switched to what we had chosen (but what we ended up with was still good!!)

  • Okay, Rachel was amazing! I think I even called her one time at like 7:30am with a question not realizing the time and she answered and was happy to help even though she did not have to at that time. I was not able to do the trial being so far away, and she made sure my parents and fiancés parents felt comfortable and confident in their food and service. The first time I tried their food was at my wedding and I made sure to scarf it all down because it was delicious. We even made the tail end of cocktail hour but didn’t get any apps but they made us a special tray that was sitting at our head table. That little detail meant so much to us. My mom insisted on making her Honduran specialty for cocktail hour and they were glad to pass them around along with theirs. They also did the cake cutting for us which allowed us to enjoy as much of the reception as possible. 10/10 recommend.

  • I used Catering by the Family for both my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. I was trying to find a caterer for my bridal shower and remembered one of my close friends telling me that they just had their tasting for their wedding and how amazing the food was. Because of her recommendation I wasted no time going online to look at all their menu options. For my shower I decided to do an assortment of appetizers and they were all amazing! Everyone loved the food. When it came time figure out food for our rehearsal dinner, I knew I had to order from Catering by the Family again. They did not disappoint! I also attended my friends wedding who used them for her wedding and their pasta bar was to die for!! I would definitely hire them again for future parties or events!!

  • I highly recommend Catering by the Family for food, bar, and rental services! Going into the planning process, I was considering hiring separate vendors for food, alcohol, and rentals just to try to save some money. As soon as we met with Rachel with CBTF, I knew we needed to use them for everything! They are basically a one-stop-shop for most of your wedding day essentials! We used them for all of our food, bar service, tables, linens, china, and flatware. They have a huge selection to choose from and I adored the gold bamboo flatware we chose. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests raved about it all night. Rachel was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was taken care of and we are very appreciative! :)

  • We hired Catering by the Family for our December wedding last month, and it was worth every penny! We worked closely with Rachel Cloke (the BEST) leading up to our special day, who went out of her way to help us solidify our menu and make sure we had the best dining experience for our guests. She was so patient (I emailed back and forth with her quite a bit) and always treated us like family when we met in person. I highly recommend Catering by the Family for your event needs. They go above and beyond to serve you with amazing excellence. When we went around to ask our guests if they were enjoying the food, we received many compliments! My only regret was not being able to eat the food myself (I was too caught up with socializing, haha).

    Hi Victoria! Thank you for the kind words! We loved working with you and being there on your wedding day! Wishing you lots of happiness in this next chapter of your life. Cheers, CBTF

  • Catering by the Family food the most incredible job at our brunch wedding. So many guests said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Sandy was so easy to work with and made the entire process perfect. We'd hire them again anytime!

  • Catering by the Family went above and beyond for us on our wedding day! We sat down many times with the owner Steve and his assistant Rachel and they truly treated us like family! We could sit and talk with them for hours! The food was very impressive and we tasted many different caterers and nothing compared. Our guests were raving about the food at our wedding. Steve had many different weddings to cater on 11/2/19 but he made us feel so special when he showed up to our reception (which was about an hour away) to make sure everything was going perfect for us just like we had planned. Like I said, they really do make you feel like family and we 100 percent recommend this company!

  • We had such an amazing experience with CBTF from the moment we contacted them till moments well after our wedding. This company is nothing short of exceptional and truly does provide a family experience for their clients. My husband and I worked with Rachel Cloke, from Sales and she was, without a doubt, the best person we worked with throughout our entire planning process. She was so responsive and helpful and did everything she could to make sure we were getting the best experience. We honestly cant thank her enough for not only making us feel like special clients, but like family. The rest of the staff were also wonderful. Even on the day of our wedding, we had staff members coming up to us to make sure we were being well taken care of. Helena, the event manager, was such a warm presence to have around on such a hectic day. Apart from the service, the food was so delicious! We had guests coming up to us raving about the Pad Thai and how good it was. It was so good, my husband an... Read more

  • Catering by the Family seriously made me feel like their most important bride throughout every meeting. Steve remembered so many details that were important to me - and fulfilled all of them! Their presentation is lovely, their food is tasty, and Steve and Stevie are just the sweetest. They love what they do, and love making people happy - and it shows. I put so much trust in them to set up tables, chairs, linens and food - and everything turned our gorgeous and delicious! They were accommodating, flexible, and even surprised me and my husband with a signature drink that people have been raving about since the wedding! Working with Steve was simply a blessing.

  • We chose catering by the family based on how good the food was at my dad's wedding, and they did not disappoint. Guests were really happy with the food, the bartender was generous with the drinks, and they were extremely professional and prompt with set up and take down. We had an unusual cake that needed special heating and they set that up for us with no problems. Also, Steve and Erika were both so sweet on the phone and in person and they were so excited and accommodating with all the elements of the wedding. Definitely happy with our choice.

  • Exceeded expectations! They worked from our home since it was at our house and they never hit a glitch. Cooking food for 80 people PLATED, not buffet can be challenging but everyone’s food was delicious and HOT when served.

  • Catering By The Family went above and beyond for our wedding. Not only did they provide all our food, but they also assisted in finding majority of our rentals and flipping our ceremony space into our reception space. They also had the best price in town. Steve and his team went beyond expectations to ensure that we had a perfect evening. The space was absolutely beautiful, and our guests raved about how great the food was. They were so attentive throughout the entire process and made it so easy for us. They even took chargers we rented from a rental company back to their warehouse so we did not have to pick them up at 9am from the venue early the morning after our wedding. Our wedding would not have been the same without Catering By The Family. Thank you for everything!

  • I have been to a few weddings where Catering by the Family was the chosen vendor. The food was always good so it was a no brainer to atleast try a tasting with them. We went to the tasting and were sold they were friendly and the food was delicious. For the main entrees at my wedding I went with Chicken & Steak. My husband and I had the chicken and it was very good. I had a few complaints that the steak was tough. What made it worse was guests were given a butter knife to cut the steak so it made it even more difficult to cut. I did however hear even though it was tough it still tasted decent. I had some guests not show up so I assumed I would be getting that extra food at the end of the night but we didn’t. At one point in the night the fire marshall came due to people parking in no parking zones. The head chef was so helpful in trying to get the word out to all the guests that needed to move their cars he really went above and beyond and I really appreciated it. Overall I would ... Read more
