We chose Beaches and Backyards catering for our wedding in Kaaawa on the strength of word of mouth. Their prices are higher than we initially had planned to pay for our small event, but their food is beyond excellent, and we are so glad we went with them! They cook on-site, so everything is super-fresh. We chose the buffet option for our casual event, and I don't think I've ever had such fantastic buffet food! So many guests commented on how delicious the food was, and the service was just excellent. We felt very well looked after :). Vanessa also arranged equipment rental for us, and worked patiently with us as our guest list and equipment needs evolved. I don't know how our day could have been any better! I would definitely recommend Beaches & Backyards Catering to anyone looking for top-notch service.

Best caterer I could have ever asked for!!! I did a lot of research on caterers on Oahu before going with Beaches and Backyards. It was a little tough planning a wedding from Germany (12 hour time different with Hawaii yikes!) but Vanessa was so easy to work with through email. She was quick and responsive and was so easy to work with. She made sure all of our wishes were taken care of and that we had a everything planned out for the big day. The day-of was absolutely amazing. The catering staff were so pleasant, attentive, and nice. Our guests were so impressed with the service and the professionalism.
As far as the food....it was AMAZING!!! Our guests are still raving about the pupus and the buffet. The servers were super sweet and packed us a Mr & Mrs to go boxes to make sure we had leftovers. Beaches and Backyards made our wedding so so perfect and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!!!!!

Having amazing food and lots of it was one of our top priorities for the wedding. Also finding a Caterer that we could work with and trust with all my food allergies was a must.

I contacted Vanessa early on into the planning of our wedding. She was patient, flexible and very accommodating. She created the most AMAZING menu for our wedding at a very reasonable price. Everything was delicious, my husband and I even went up for seconds! Our guests are still raving about all of the food and you guys literally make the BEST Spam Musubi on the Island.

We also added on the Bar Service they offer which was very convenient, and Vanessa helped us to create some delicious signature drinks. The serving staff were awesome as well, very efficient and professional!

Let me start by saying that Vanessa saved us from a complete wedding disaster. We loved our wedding venue, but it came with a different caterer who was very unresponsive and who was not even willing to sign a contract with us. Then two months before the wedding (after we had already sent out invitations with meal choices for a plated dinner), the venue's caterer cancelled on us. Luckily, we contacted Vanessa and she immediately stepped up to create a similar menu at a comparable price. We were so worried about finding a good caterer so last minute, but I'm sure many can agree that we were fortunate to find the best caterer on the island! Our guests are STILL raving about how great the food was! During our tasting we couldn't even decide which meal we wanted ourselves because every option was so good. I don't even like salmon that much, but the teriyaki salmon encrusted with furikake was probably my favorite! In addition to amazing food, Beaches & Backyards helped us with setting up the tables, moving chairs after the ceremony, brought most of their own supplies, and the wait staff was very friendly. Thank you so much for making our wedding so wonderful!

Vanessa and her team at Beaches and Backyard did an absolutely fabulous job with our May 2013 wedding at Loulu Palm. We took a leap of faith booking Vanessa prior to our tasting, and I am so glad that we did! Vanessa went above and beyond for us! The food was excellent and the service was superb. I got so many complements on how great everything tasted throughout the night. We chose to have a cocktail hour with passed pupus (take note, her ahi tar tar and pig tostadas are incredible) followed by a family-style meal. The family-style presentation worked out perfectly! It’s exactly how I envisioned it. I can’t thank Beaches and Backyard enough.

Thank you to Vanessa Hollinger & Beaches and Backyards Catering Staff for the AWESOME service and DELICIOUS food served at our wedding. Food was an important part of our wedding. My husband and I wanted our guests to be impressed and satisfied with the food served at our wedding. After our taste testing with Vanessa, we knew BEACHES & BACKYARDS CATERING was our caterer. We were in HEAVEN. It was like saying, YES to DRESS but YES TO THE CATERER!!!

Vanessa and her staff definitely went above and beyond. Many of our guests stated, "The food was AWESOME. Wow! Who was your Caterer?"

John and I can not THANK YOU enough for the EXCELLENT & OUTSTANDING SERVICE. At most weddings, Brides & Grooms are consumed with picture taking, speeches, toasts, etc. We were afraid that we weren't going to enjoy our food at our wedding. Vanessa suggested that we line up in the buffet line to enjoy the presentation & mingle with our guests. We were grateful for her suggestion. She also informed her staff that my husband LOVED and RAVED about the Coconut Kauai Shrimp with Guava Chili Lime Aioli. We were really grateful and more grateful when we saw two plates of appetizers at our sweetheart table. Not only were we able to do our bride and groom duties, but we were also able to ENJOY our food at our wedding.

Vanessa, Alicia, and to Beaches & Backyards Catering Staff, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of our special day!!!

If you are thinking about Beaches & Backyards Catering for their services, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND them!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!

Vanessa and her team did a fantastic job catering our wedding at Lanikuhonua. Our guests raved to us about how delicious her food was! She was extremely flexible and worked with us to create the perfect menu! We ended up going with a plated meal which she executed flawlessly. She even went out of her way to work with a special veggie meat we requested and we loved the bread and cheese and shaved ice station she created for us! We highly recommend beaches and backyards catering and will use them again should we need another catered event in the future!!!

The staff at Beaches and Backyards had their work cut out for them. I am an event manager myself and I must say I was blown away with Vanessa Hollinger and her entire staff. I knew the food would be amazing upon our first meeting and fantastic tasting, but the night of our wedding her entire staff were seamless and professional. Our guests (half of which were "locals") could not stop raving about the food and about how attentive the servers were! Thank you Vanessa for your exquisite food, top notch staff and ability to impress everyone!!!

Beaches and Backyards Catering did a fantastic job catering our wedding at Kualoa Ranch on July 6, 2012.

Both the food and service were incredible. All of my guests raved about the food. I think it could have rivaled most restaurants, really! We had an upscale luau with fancier versions of the traditional fare with B&B's own twists on them. The Kalua pig, tri-tip, and ginger chicken were all wonderful. I also loved the lighter and creative salads and passed-appetizers including tuna poke, coconut shrimp with a guava cilantro sauce, and artichoke and parmesan crostini. The ingredients were fresh and dishes were cooked perfectly - even at a mass quantity (80 guests). I gave them a list of what I was envisioning and they responded with suggestions that went above and beyond my recommendations.

The servers were very polite, professional, and were readily available with refills throughout the dinner service. The staff was wonderful to work with.

I can't recommend them enough!!
