  • We were nervous about hiring a smaller company for our daughter's wedding reception out an outdoor venue without freestanding kitchen . We had used a mainline Charleston caterer for our son's celebration the year before and knew we wanted a more personalized, less formulaic approach. The Pampered Palate exceeded our expectations in every way. The food displays were beautiful, the food was excellent, and the service was impeccable!

  • Catherine, Merrit and their staff was beyond what my husband and I could ever hope for. We hired The Pampered Palate for our wedding and will forever recommend them to everybody we know. They were professional, thoughtful and EXCELLENT. I have a severe gluten allergy along with a lactose allergy, and their staff made it a top priority to have everything allergen friendly (the food and prepping area). They were extremely friendly while serving for the wedding, and made sure to make our wedding a breeze. Their work exceeded our high high expectations... I will never hire anyone else. Thank you for the amazing food and hospitality!!!!!!!!

  • My husband and I were SO happy that we were referred to the Pampered Palate! Catherine and her husband are an absolutely amazing team and made our wedding dreams come true. We cannot even begin to count the number of times we heard our guests complimenting the food and the service saying it was the best that they'd ever had. Communication leading up to the wedding was seamless and the quality of the meals and service was outstanding. We truly feel that the catering services at our wedding was a favorite for us as well as our family & friends. We would recommend the Pampered Palate to everyone!

  • Of all of the amazing aspects of our wedding, the food may have taken the cake (literally and figuratively). Every single guest I spoke with raved about the food and service. The promptness, professionalism, attention to detail, service, presentation were all above and beyond. I will be using Pampered Palate for all events involving catering in the future as well as recommending them to anyone reading this and everyone I know, but the majority have already asked after the wedding and will be using them.

  • WOW!!! is all I have to say about my experience with Pampered Palate. Merritt and Catherine are amazing at what they do and they made my wedding day absolutely perfect. The food was so amazing and all of our guests were raving about how delicious everything was, especially the hors d'oeuvres. You can tell that they are very passionate about their food and it shows when you taste it. Catherine also served as my day of coordinator which I feel isn't a good enough description for all the hard work she put in and always did it with a smile. She was genuine, caring, and so easy to work with, she always responded to all my questions very quickly and was so patient when I asked a million questions. She was the reason our wedding day was absolutely perfect and I can't say enough kind words about her! Catherine and Merritt are the best, if you are looking for a caterer then look no further Pampered Palate is the best! :)

  • Our guests have been emailing us for days with compliments and fond memories of the food served at our wedding recently. With the creativity and culinary talents of Merrit, and the talents of Catherine to ensure we had everything we needed, our special day will remain memorable for years. They welcomed us with with open arms knowing we were from out of state, and partnered with us until the wedding day. It was an incredible experience. My only regret as the bride was not eating enough as everything was so delicious (and trust me, they sought us out to make sure we had plate after plate of food along with our guests!) Thank you Catherine and Merrit. We were truly blessed to have you as part of our wedding day festivities.

  • My husband and I were so so happy we went with Pampered Palate for our wedding day! The food was absolutely amazing, Catherine was such a help and so easy to work with and we received so many compliments on the catering at our wedding. We had a wonderful tasting where they were so accommodating to our every want and need. Would definitely recommend Pampered Palate for any of your upcoming events!

  • Absolutely outstanding!! Just incredible. The food was delicious and perfect. My guests adored the food and I LOVED coming home to the leftovers nicely stored for us. Not to mention, when our bakers dropped our cakes off, they quickly fled the scene...but not to worry because the amazing pampered palate team came to the rescue without question or hesitation and set everything up beautifully. Catherine, an owner and VERY prompt responder to many emails, even helped me walk to the aisle by holding my dress when the ceremony was beginning. The service and quality of food was out of this world!!!! They even prepared a to go box for us to have once we got to the hotel. Catherine was so flexible and easy to work with, whatever I needed, she was happy to suggest, arrange and execute any addition or change! We had shrimp and grits (even if you don't like grits, you would LOVE this dish), BBQ pulled chicken, a salad bar, rolls, mac and cheese casserole, chicken wrap appetizers with fried green ...

  • I can not rave enough about The Pampered Palate and the wonderful experience they provided my husband and I (and guests) the day of our wedding. Catherine guided me along the way and acted as my "Day-of" Coordinator and her attention to detail was impeccable. I have received so many compliments on the food and experience. Particularly feedback that it was "not your typical wedding food". We LOVED the food ourselves, had time to enjoy everything and Catherine even packaged up some doggie boxes for us to go. We are so appreciative of all of your efforts Catherine and Merritt and will forever be thankful!

  • If I could give them a rating of 10/5 I would!! Catherine, and the entire Pampered Palate team made our wedding day simply perfection! From start to finish Pampered Palate did exactly that-PAMPER! Starting with the tasting, they accommodated our unique dietary needs, and food preferences. During the booking process Catherine made everything so easy, and even gave us suggestions when our bakery closed leaving us in the lurch. On our wedding day, Catherine had pre-set our plates at the table so that we didn't have to worry about getting stuck talking in line to guests before eating. (how many brides ACTUALLY get to enjoy their food!? this one did!!) :) Throughout the entire night the staff made sure that my husband and I had enough to eat, drink, and felt comfortable. At the end of the night, they even set us up with to-go boxes for late night snacking! I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about this company. I would most definitely recommend them to anyone in need of catering ser... Read more

  • My husband and I spent a lot of time evaluating at least 10 different catering companies for our wedding and chose the Pampered Palate. We were so glad we did! They were willing to work within our budget and the food was fresh, hot, and absolutely delicious! When reminiscing about our big day, our guests still talk about how great the food was. Catherine was so pleasant to work with. I had also hired Catherine as my day of coordinator. I was an out of town bride and didn't have a lot of flexibility. On one of the few times I came into Charleston, Catherine came and met me at the venue one weekend to do a walk thru and discuss my needs. She was very prompt in returning my many emails and phone calls and laying out a detailed timeline for our event. On the big day, she was also very good at keeping me calm while ensuring that things ran smoothly and stayed on schedule. I would highly recommend the pampered palate to any bride and am so appreciative of their great service and yumm... Read more

  • Catherine and Merrit handled our son and his bride's rehearsal dinner and a brunch after the wedding. The food was magnificent – truly better than the finest Charleston restaurant – and their attention to detail was fantastic. In particular, the rehearsal dinner was spectacular. They took our vision and everything that was important to us for the evening and executed it to perfection. All of the courses were great - the tenderloin was perfectly cooked for every guest, which is quite an accomplishment for a guest list of over 100. We ended the weekend with a delicious brunch at our home. Our guests raved all weekend about the wonderful food. We could not have done it without their hard work!

  • We used Pampered Palate for both Catering and Day-of Coordinating. We couldn't have asked for more from either service. Catherine and Merrit are both excellent at what they do. They are professional yet relaxed and flexible. Working with them was a pleasure. Our outdoor reception went off without a hitch despite rain/wind/venue limitations, and they gave us peace of mind throughout. It felt like they went above and beyond for us and made our day very special. Catering: Food was the most important thing to my wife and me for our wedding, and having had PP at another wedding, they were an easy choice. The food was again excellent at our wedding, and our guests made many unsolicited comments to us about how great the food was. They were so easy to work with, even helping us go over rental contracts and the venue set up to make sure all our basis were covered. Little things also set them apart. Catherine brought the wedding party drinks and appetizers as soon as we got to the recep... Read more

  • We had the Pampered Palate cater our April 26, 2015 wedding (and rehearsal dinner) in downtown Charleston, SC and they were absolutely amazing! The food was by far the best I have ever had at a wedding (and I'm not just saying that because it was my wedding). Every little detail from the passed hot hors d'oeuvres, to the shrimp and grits action station, to the low country themed entree was beyond delicious and absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. Every item was so beautifully prepared it looked like it could be on the cover of a magazine. We had the pleasure of working closely with Catherine and Merrit, who were with us every step of the way for anything we needed in the time leading up to the wedding through the end of the reception. Catherine was also our "Weekend of" wedding coordinator and I cannot express how unbelievable she is. Her incredibly calm, yet direct personality, coupled with stellar organizational skills really helped make our wedding truly perfect. My husband... Read more
