Black-Eyed Susan's was an amazing choice in every way. Fantastically creative and delicious menu options. The owners were flexible, open to suggestions and were above all concerned with our happiness. The patience and kindness I experienced during the planning process from this vendor was heartfelt and very appreciated. But what blew us away was the presentation and professionalism day of! And best of all, the food was so so good. It was very important to me that the food be not just tasty, but memorable. Black-Eyed Susan's catering defiantly succeeded in accomplishing that for us :)

My ability to articulate in words the incredible work done by BES will never be sufficient in this review. Working with Cynthia and Brad was such a treat. They were super flexible and really worked with me (and my mom) on our event. Two months later and people still rave to me about the food at my wedding and many have asked me to get recipes from BES. Cynthia really goes above and beyond and my greatest example is an off-hand comment I made about hating the color orange. Cynthia wanted to serve our soup out of a pumpkin so I asked if she could paint the pumpkin white. Remarkably, the day of the wedding there was a legit white pumpkin with delicious soup in it as a centerpiece in the spread of amazing food. My mother-in-law has mentioned the biscuit bar at the wedding numerous times. She was amazed at how it always seemed full and warm. Having worked as an event planner for 6 years in Florida and DC, this process was so seemless and honest to goodness the food was incredible. THANK YOU Cynthia, Brad and the BES staff for making our wedding day one to remember.

Blackeyed Susan is TERRIFIC. Cynthia worked with us to build the perfect southern menu that reflected our vegetarian-leaning sensibilities. She even allowed us to tweak certain recipes to accommodate our tastes! Everything from the initial tasting through the wedding reception was exceptional and surpassed my expectations in every way. Our wedding guests are still talking about the food, almost 3 months later!

Black-Eyed Susan provided delicious food, presented beautifully at our wedding reception. Our wedding was a destination wedding for us in the mountains and we met with Cynthia about 5 months before the wedding to do a tasting. Everything tasted so good and we could not wait for our family and friends to taste the beef and black bean burgers, cornbread bar, squash au gratin, pies, etc. My then fiancée and I were super excited about having a pie bar and we talked in detail with Cynthia about our favorite pies and what we wanted for the pie bar - strawberry rhubarb for the wedding pie, chocolate chess, apple, and peach for the cobblers, hand pies, other pies, etc. When telling our friends about the pie bar prior to the wedding - we told them what to expect. We were disappointed at the reception that wedding pie ended up being a buttermilk pie and the chocolate chess pie became a chocolate pecan pie and there wasn't peach anything. We shrugged it off on the day of the wedding - it's a little detail that didn't happen. I would advise others that what you request may not appear at your event (even if you remind them a few weeks before the event) BUT the food will still taste great and your guests will be wowed. I asked for Cynthia to have a lemonade with mint at our reception but instead we had a pomegranate/ginger/cranberry lemonade at the reception that I loved. They prepared to go boxes for me and my husband at the end of the evening which we greatly appreciated.

There are no words to describe how amazing BES is. You have to meet Cynthia and Brad and taste their incredibly delicious food to experience and capture their high level of service and creativity. From the moment I first spoke to Cynthia, I knew she was the one and that she wouldn't let us down. She has a passion for food and and a love of people that's reflected in her business. Cynthia and her husband are so kind, patient, understanding, and super cool. Their staff is amazing, and they are so fun to work with. Not to mention, their food is INSANE- the best chocolate chip cookies, bean burgers, salads, biscuits, goat cheese grits, bison burgers, kale- they even made us Mexican corn. Our family and friends still talk about the food... we'll always remember it. BES is the very best- you'll be so happy you hired them. :)

We chose BES catering because our tasting with Cynthia went really well (the food was delicious) and she ensured us that she could pull off a plated service at Lake Eden Events (a barn that does not have a full working kitchen) that would provide our guests with hot or at least warm food. She also said that her staff would take care of me and my husband making sure our appetizers and drinks were delivered to us during cocktail hour since we would be doing pictures. Unfortunately neither of those two things happened. Although the food was very tasty and delicious we had many guests give feedback that it was chilly. Also, my husband and I never saw a single appetizer or drink while we were doing photos. In addition, I paid for vendor meals which were never given to those vendors the day of the weeding. It just seemed a bit chaotic and possibly understaffed. Overall I wouldn't recommend BES UNLESS you go with BUFFET style. The quality of the food when it comes to taste is 5 stars but they are unable to execute a plated service unless they have a full kitchen at their disposal. They were extremely flexible though when it came to the type of food and being able to accommodate a variety of dietary needs. The communication was also lacking so I would give their customer service a 3 out of 5.

I cannot say enough about this catering company! The event was so perfect. They were so professional and the food was honestly the best food I have ever had at a wedding! We had so much food our guest were all so impressed. The price is so beyond fair. We had a plated dinner with two meats on each plate with French style green beans and au gratin potatoes. We had a cheese garlic biscuit. Yum! We had appetizers during cocktail hour which consisted of a fried bar (our guest were so impressed) and the surprise element was chicken and dumplings in 4oz mason jars that were passed. LOVE! We had a very good bar tender that made sure our guest were appropriately served (this was our biggest fear, that someone would get to drunk and drive on the NC mountain roads). At the end of the night we had a bar b q slider with coleslaw on top. No one expected there would be more food. There service was awesome. It made the night go so smooth. Thank you is not enough! They were wonderful:) Also despite other reviews, Cynthia herself served us during our pictures. She was so attentive.

Where do I begin? The food? It was handcrafted, unique, southern style, amazing. Every guest I spoke with raved about it. The staff? I was overwhelmed by their attention to detail and friendliness. The bar tenders were so awesome, they were fun, quick, had great personalities. I never had to get my own drink! If they saw I was without one they would bring me one where ever I was! Cynthia.... I can't even properly articulate how absolutely amazing she is. She makes the experience so personal and genuine. It felt like she was just as invested into my wedding as I was. Just a joy to work with her. She puts love and passion into what she does. She is the definition of true southern hospitality.
