We got married in my small hometown, it is so small we don't even have a grocery store. We do however have a wonderful caterer. I knew I wanted to support local by using Claey's for our wedding, the day that we got engaged. They were number one on our list to meet with. I had been to a wedding that they catered and knew that the food was great. Nathan Claey was so easy to work with, it was easy to make changes to our menu and to make accommodations for dietary restrictions. We also got married in the craziest storm of the year and the Claey's team showed up and still made our day great! It was so muddy and rainy. I remember seeing the staff dripping wet and moving food from our barn to the tent with nothing but a smile on their faces. We couldn't have been more grateful for them being there! They even packed up all the leftover food and put it in my mom's spare fridge when the wedding was over. It was amazing to eat the next day. I would highly recommend Claey's Catering to anyone getting married in the Portland, Oregon area.

Absolutely fantastic catering company. Going through all the motions of hiring vendors for our wedding was stressful, but Claeys stood out like a shinning pearl of exemplary professionalism. I've never dealt with a more prompt, courteous, and attentive group of people than these guys. All our guests were blown away by the food. Cynthia and her crew really impressed us. And Nathan Claeys treated us with the respect of paying customers that you'd literally have to get into a time machine to experience anywhere else. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Claeys Catering was super to work with. Everything went perfectly from the moment we started emailing up to the wedding day. They are very easy to communicate with and when we went for our tasting it was awesome! We knew right away they were the one we wanted. The menu that they created for us was perfect. On the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly! The passed appetizers were a huge hit! We received a lot of compliments on how friendly and awesome the bartender was. We also received a ton of feedback on how delicious the food was.. All of the staff working so hard at the wedding were totally professional, very helpful and always had a smile on their faces. Over all it was a huge success and Claeys was a great contribution to our big day. We also loved how it is a family business and you can tell they take great pride in providing excellent service. Thank you so much! We would highly recommend Claeys Catering!

Claeys was pretty much the perfect vendor to work with. The food was delicious, there was plenty of it, and our guests were happy, but beyond that they were probably the most helpful planning resource we had -- they gave guidance and opinions on everything we asked for, never left us waiting for a response, and helped us make sure the event ran smoothly and according to schedule. Their bartenders and serving staff were delightful, and the set up folks were great. We needed to reach out to them late at night the day before our wedding for a last minute request and they got back to us right away. They were wonderful and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Working with Claey's was an exceptional process from the first contact through final execution. They were the list of preferred caterers for our venue, and after reaching out to a few, Claey's was the only to build our personalized menu from the start, rather than a package already built by other companies.

All communication was responded to very quickly, and Nathan was such a great contact. They facilitated all of our rental needs, which made the whole process so smooth.

The food at our wedding was absolutely amazing, and the chef and full staff stayed til the end, and were wonderful throughout.

I met Nathan for the tasting and he was very friendly! The food was delicious and he received the suggestions we made very well and had no problem changing things and even making a special appetizer they had never done before - which turned out amazingly well! They let us provide our own alcohol which was great for our open bar.

The food arrived at the wedding and it was absolutely delicious!! All our guests were raving and many went back for seconds and thirds. Claeys did a great job providing just the right amount of food and we had enough leftovers for the next couple of days.

THE STAFF: I had so much fun at our wedding and I know it was because I didn't need to worry about a thing! Claeys staff didn't everything we needed to be done from setup to cleanup and the work in between. The bar staff they provided was very friendly and made the experience all the more enjoyable. They performed a room change between our ceremony and reception while our guests mingled just outside the room and they did it so stealthily that I didn't even know about it even though the door to the main hall was open.

Lastly, they cleaned up like machines! They worked so efficiently that we were done cleanup within an hour of the guests leaving the party and they did it with all smiles. I didn't see a single staff member who didn't have a smile when someone looked at them.

Absolutely wonderful! Thank you for allowing me not to have any worry on the best day of my life!

Wonderful experience having Claey's cater our wedding. Nathan was amazing to work with! They made a menu based on our preferences and the food was amazing, we have had endless compliments from our guest that we had the best wedding food at any wedding they had attended. And the price was incredibly reasonable, better than any other caterer we priced in town. You will not be sorry if you go with Claey's.

We loved working with Claeys! Our venue required that we work with one of about fifteen different caterers....so when we started scouring the list we were thrilled to find one that would let us bring our own alcohol! (Money saver!) The food they made was great and they were incredibly flexible with our menu choices. They helped to coordinate all of our rentals and made it so that we have one point-person for food, alcohol and event rentals.

They were fantastic to work with and I would recommend them to anyone holding an event - big or small!
