Bayou House was the most affordable (but still classy and tasty) caterer on the Central Coast. They were very flexible and let us create a custom menu that combined items from both Anacapa BBQ and Bayou House. During the tasting you only get to taste 3 items from your menu, so be sure to pick the ones most important to you. The crew was very friendly and helpful, and got everyone through the buffet line ahead of schedule. They served us directly so we could eat while everyone else was in line. They put everything in leftover containers at the end of the night, including a to-go box for us. The meat was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection.

My only complaints: it sometimes takes a while to hear back on your e-mails, so sometimes you are uncertain if they even heard from you. The mashed potatoes also ended up a little watery.

Thanks Valerie and crew for making our day special! The mac and cheese was great!

We used Anacapa BBQ their sister company (we had our wedding in a barn so it seemed fitting) OOOOHHH BOY the food was AWESOME!!!! First of the apps were to die for and plenty of them. And if you get anything from Anacapa you have to get the Brisket...AMAZING!!! That is all anyone could talk about.
Valerie is super sweet and knows her stuff. So between her and her husbands cooking you are good to go.
Also my sister is gluten free vegan and the made one lil special plate for her which I thought was very nice :o)

I wanted to somehow represent my cali-born hubby-to-be since (his mother's from Baton Rouge). Also, having delicious food for guests is important in my cultural background, as well. (naggimas) We live in the Bay Area, and didn't get a chance to taste test, so we were concerned that this caterer was someone that went to NOLA one time claiming they knew how to cook LA food, but it turned out Valerie is from Slidell, and knows her stuff. Her hubby is Cali born, but cooks very well. We ordered from the Garden District Buffet menu for our low-key wedding beachhouse party. We highly recommend the Spinach-Jicama-Pina Salad, and the mushrooms from the Coq-Au-Vin were delicious (I don't like mushrooms, but this was an exception.) My guests loved the food, even the cheese, and stuffed themselved 'til they hurt. My hubby didn't care for the bread rolls too much but the rest was perfect. Valerie is flexible, and scoped out the rental house for needed utensils, since we just wanted a drop off, and she sub'd us bottled water for drinks. You'll be pleased with their service.

I cannot say enough good things about the Bayou House/Anacapa BBQ. Their food is DELICIOUS. We had the tri-tip and lemon herb chicken at our wedding and the guests RAVED about all of the yummy appetizers (the shrimp stuffed mushrooms were my fave!) There were so many menu options it was so hard to choose, but Valerie helped make the decision easy by letting us mix and match options. Food was an important thing for our wedding and I am so very happy I chose Anacapa BBQ to cater our wedding.

We contracted with Bayou House to cater our wedding at the Dallidet Adobe in October. Valerie was professional, presented all available menu and service options to us (ways to mix and match) and provided useful suggestions for how much food would be required for the cocktail hour and meal (number of different appetizers, using a main course as a side, etc). She was also very helpful explaining the benefits of contracting specific services (bar tender, table setup/takedown, dish wash, etc).

Their pricing was very reasonable, especially for the quality of food, presentation, and level of service. We contracted for appetizers (the caramelized onion quesadillas were phenomenal!!), lunch meal (Louisiana Sunburst Salad, Roasted Garlic and Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes, Grilled Chicken with Blackberry Port Sauce, and Creole Jambalaya), bartender (with pre-paid tip service), coffee service, cake-cutting service, champagne toast service, and dish wash. As the bride and groom, we didn't get to see much of the layout but it looked absolutely beautiful in the pictures. The staff were friendly and coordinated the timing of the meal perfectly. They showed great care with managing all aspects of the meal and cake service.

Valerie and her crew at Anacapa/Bayou House are phenomenal - and so is the food! As mentioned by couples below, we too were comfortable asking all kinds of questions about the menu and mixing & matching until we had the PERFECT combination of appetizers/entrees for our budget.

On the big day, I was SO THRILLED to have catering staff approach us several times during photos with plates of appetizers just for us... what a relief, and a welcome surprise! The food was great, and the whole staff was professional yet lively.

I can't wait to work with Anacapa/Bayou house again for a fun event - I'm looking for an excuse to throw a big party just to work with Valerie again!!

I loved working with Valerie and her team. I found Bayou/Anacapa to be the most reasonably priced of the high end caterers. The menu was diverse and most importantly, the food is delicious! My only gripe would be that I wish my husband and I could have had a tasting before we booked. We tasted some of their food at various bridal faires, but we never had the option to sample our dish. Luckily it turned out well and we liked everything, but it made us a little nervous.
Extremely professional, quick responses to questions, excellent service. If you're looking for a good value without skimping on quality, give them a call.

The food was amazing!!! I sampled a Blackberry Port Wine Sauce at a bridal faire and had to have it at my wedding. It was to die for. The Bayou house send an entire crew to my wedding, with servers and chefs. The servers were amazing, walking around with appetizer trays and refilling beverages. It felt like a fancy dinner, which is exactly what I wanted for my guests.
