We did not end up using Charleston Hospitality as we changed our venue to a hotel as our guest list grew, however we almost used them! They were so friendly and fun to work with. We went over many estimates and many different scenarios. We met with Chef Eric multiple times and enjoyed the tastings immensely. Next event we will contact Charleston Hospitality and in the mean time, we highly recommend them!

Eric and his catering staff go above and beyond what is required of a catering company. From planning to execution, Eric knows what he's talking about--and after the number of years he's spent in this business, this comes as no surprise. He is a wealth of knowledge not only in catering, but can also offer excellent recommendations for any aspect of your wedding. He is down-to-earth and easy to talk to, and also quick to respond to any questions. He directs his staff seamlessly on the day of your event so that no bumps or hiccups ever occur. Thanks for your hard work! Definitely recommend!!

Eric was AMAZING during the entire process of our wedding. He was also great with our rehearsal dinner. Our guests were blown away by the food and the professionalism of the catering crew. Eric made our special day even more so. We used Charleston Hospitality Catering for our food and bar for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding. All of this was amazing and I would glady reccommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful, professional caterer.

Eric was FANTASTIC. My husband and I planned our wedding on short notice and Eric booked us right away. He met with us for the initial the day we called him, and he set up a tasting the following week. He was very helpful throughout everything and lord knows I had a lot of questions for him! He always returned my calls and emails on the same day. Everything was wonderful. I would highly recommend the shrimp and grits, but all his food was so delicious. Everyone at our wedding loved it. I did not have to worry about anything on the day of my wedding, he even helped set up my wedding cake and cupcakes. His staff was very freindly and professional. They even walked out to the beach to serve us appetizers while the bridal party and I were taking pictures! I have recommended and would continue to recommend his catering services and his restaurants to anyone. He was such a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that we were able to book him for our wedding!

I used Charleston Hospitality Catering for my wedding as well as trolley services and I can not say enough good things about my experience with them. I worked with Chef Eric Gaffin from the very beginning on my wedding planning process and I am so happy I had him as our caterer. Eric loves what he does and it shows. He is passionate and bent over backwards to help me with anything I needed. I am so happy with how our wedding went, the food was excellent and I still have people telling me how delicious everything was. We chose to have a blend of Italian foods (for my heritage) and low country foods (for the location of the wedding) and I was so happy how the combinations of the two types of food were incorporated into our appetizers and entrees. We also used the trolley owned by Charleston Hospitality and I am very happy we chose to use that as well. We were suprised when the trolley pulled up to see banners on each side with pictures of us and our names and wedding date. This was something Eric and his team did for us as a suprise-and it was such a good one! I am so happy with everything and I hope to go to weddings in the future who used Charleston Hospitality Catering so I can eat the delicious food! Thank you for making my wedding such a success.

Our daughter had her reception at Old Wide Awake Plantation in Hollywood and everything turned out wonderful! My biggest concern after the weather was the food. Most of our guests traveled from out of state and I wanted all of them to fall in love with SC. We worked closely with Eric since January and he helped us with the menu, rentals, trolley, bar and advice. We liked him so much that we also use him to cater the rehearsal buffet. We wanted southern fare and he prepared pulled pork, low country boil, corn bread,salad and coleslaw. Everything was fresh and delicious! The wedding dinner was also exceptional. especially the beef. The guests loved it and complimented us on the delicious meal. Eric was great to work with and I would highly recommend him and his staff to anyone who is looking for great food and exceptional service!

I have been helping with weddings at The Governor Thomas Bennett House for a few years so when we needed a caterer for my daughers wedding, the decision to use Eric and Charleston Hospitality Catering was a no-brainer. Having witnessed his style and ease on several occasions, not to mention how truly delicious the food is, I knew they would do an excellent job for us. They have the experience needed to think of all the little details. The entire staff has that exact blend of professionalism and friendliness that made our guests feel so welcome. Thank you so much Charleston Hospitality Catering for making our event so special. We were 100% satisfied and would use you again. Sincerely, Sherri Giacinto

Mark and I couldn't be happier that we chose Chef Eric and Charleston Hospitality Catering for our wedding. Chef Eric and his team went above and beyond to make our day special. I can't even count how many times we called and emailed Eric for his assistance in helping us plan and each time he made us feel as though we were his only clients. Throughout our reception, our guests kept commenting on how outstanding the food was and how friendly the waitstaff were. Our wedding was everything we imagined it would be and more! I highly, highly reccomend Charleston Hospitality Catering. You honestly can't go wrong with them! Thank you Chef Eric and Charleston Hospitality Catering!

The Owner Eric was amazing! He merged his company in the middle of my engagement and my fiance' and I didn't even notice any transition. He even took over for the sales person who was in charge of our wedding when she left the company. He was available and communication was always open. The week of my wedding he even had lunch with me to discuss final details. In the mist of dozens of Charleston Brides that week Eric really made me feel special.

The servers, WOW ABOVE AND BEYOND of what I have seen from wedding servers. They were friendly and attentive and made sure tables were cleared and people were fed! There was one in particular who saw me getting overwhelmed and took whatever project I was doing (tying baby's breath to my flower girl sign?) and did it for me and did a BEAUTIFUL job. There was also a male server who came over to the island during cocktail hour with hor d'oeuvres to make sure my bridal party didn't go hungry. That kind of service was definitely amazing and way above average.

Our guest's reviews of the food was equally if not more so amazing. I kept hearing over and over "This is the BEST wedding food I have ever had!" The pasta station was a hit with both the vegetarians AND
carnivores in our clans. The shrimp and grits were definitely a delight! During one of our meetings Eric mentioned that changed his recipe a bit from our initial tasting but even my Yankee family told me how they never like grits until they tasted his. Charleston Hospitality definitely set the bar high for any weddings our guest go to for the rest of the season and helped make my wedding truly the Summer Kick-off Event!

My main focus (besides marrying the love of my life) was my guest enjoyment. And they certainly
enjoyed themselves! I can honestly say my fiance' Matthew and I would choose Charleston Hospitality again and again!

Charleston Hospitality was fantastic! We had a small intimate wedding and they kept with our theme. It felt like we were dining in our own gourmet restaurant. The food was delicous. Everyone raved about it. Not one complaint. In fact everyone wanted seconds. Eric and his staff were hospitable, kind, polite, and professional. My parents are planning on using Charleston Hospitality for their anniversary dinner because it was such a success. Worth every penny!!
