My husband and I were beyond pleased with our experience with Creative Catering! Gary answered every question we had, met with us when we needed and was available by email and phone whenever we needed him! On the day of our wedding, Barbara, the event manager touched base with us, congratulated us and got us whatever we needed. She even put a plate of apps on our sweetheart table since we were so busy and missed the apps. The food was absolutely AMAZING!!! All of my guests could not stop raving about our apps (you have to get the lamb chops!), salad, and entrees! Everything was perfect and one of our biggest priorities was delicious food for our guests and Creative Catering absolutely went above and beyond. I'd highly recommend them to anyone getting married!

I have 0 complaints! Gary was so amazing and made sure everything was easy for me during my planning and on my wedding day. Creative was the last out of 4 tastings I had tried and I had horrible experiences with all the other companies but Creative was amazing the food was delicious and Gary came out and explained everything you could think of to us. I love that they do not use pre-frozen protein and that each plate of food weighs 1.5 pounds which is the average amount of food a man needs to survive a 5-6 hour wedding. The price is really good for the quality of food, everyone could not stop talking about how good the food and service was. I would highly recommend creative catering to anyone wanting a affordable delicious food for their big day!!

Creative Catering did an awesome job with our wedding! The food was delicious and plentiful. (I caught guests taking pictures with their enormous filets!) Gary and his team were so helpful and responsive in the months leading up to our wedding. He offered great advice from his many years of experience on all aspects of the planning process. The on-site staff at our wedding were incredibly professional and hardworking. Creative Catering is one of three preferred caterers at our venue and they set themselves apart at the open house with dramatically better food and service than the other two (also well-reviewed) vendors. It was an easy choice for us and one that we were very happy with in the end!

The only thing I would note so that other couples are not surprised is that we were a bit disappointed with our tasting appointment. It was the only one we went on so maybe this is the industry standard--but we could not choose what items to sample and we were paired with another couple (and several of their relatives) who had very different tastes and style than us. It made things a bit awkward and was not the personal experience I expected when making such an significant and expensive decision. However, the food we did try was delicious and the items we did not get to try until our wedding turned out great too!

Based on value alone, Creative Catering was wonderful, but then we when it came to the food and service they really out did themselves. From the first phone conversation with Gary I had a good feeling. The portions were large and I had so many complements from our guest about how amazing everything was. They handled the itinerary to the bar and clean up. They were so easy to work with and accommodating as well, as I had a cake brought in from another vendor without any extra cutting charge! I couldn't have been more pleased, if I ever need an event catered again I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to them.

Our daughter's wedding was at Misselwood at Endicott College in Beverly Mass. Gary's crew made the wedding cruise right along without a hitch. They were right there while the pictures were being taken with the hors D'oeuvres and getting us drinks. When dinner was served it went like clockwork and everyone raved about the food. We had Grilled Filet Mignon, Tuscano Chicken and Butternut Squash Ravioli. Every dish was cooked to perfection. We would recommend Creative Catering of Beverly Mass. Our wedding was for 180 people. We are very happy with our choice. They did an awesome job!!!!

FLAWLESS. I went to a couple of different tastings before choosing my caterer. Creative Catering's tasting was the best one we went to, bar none. So much attention was given to every couple at the tasting, every piece of food they served was described, and advice on how to handle some of the small parts of the wedding you would encounter throughout the night was tossed out as Gary walked around to chat with everybody. When it came to booking and planning, it couldn't have been easier. Gary was incredibly flexible throughout the entire processes, making sure I had all of the information I needed to change my mind (more than once) before we set the menu in stone. I had wanted to attend another tasting with my parents before finalizing the menu and I had let Creative know that - unfortunately, our schedules got a little too hectic and we couldn't make it to another, but that didn't stop Gary and Peggy from keeping my in the loop about when the next tastings would be. After our final meeting, I received a day of schedule from Gary which helped me SO MUCH when it came to making sure I had all of the details laid out (since I had no idea what the timings for so many things were supposed to be).
The night of the wedding couldn't have been better. All of our guests loved the food, and I saw Gary walking around keeping on top of everything. He made sure my picky brother got his plate of chicken fingers (that he easily helped me order ahead of time) and offered to bring us food from the buffet if we didn't think we would have time to get away long enough to get our own food. All of the servers were also fantastic - from interacting with the guests at their tables, to letting us stop them for help taking a picture, to even helping me adjust the bottom of my dress for a shoe picture. Everything was FANTASTIC!
Also - if you are wondering what vegetarian dish to order from them, pick the butternut squash ravioli - I don't like squash, but I could eat those raviolis for days :)

Creative did a great job for my wedding! Food was not one of my biggest concerns for the wedding because I tend to be under impressed by wedding food. I was shocked to hear that people said they loved their food! Creative was also great because they let us customize a "fun" menu consisting of Chicken Parm, Beef Short Rib and Butternut Squash Ravioli. Our passed apps also included mini bagel bites which I thought was fantastic! The wait staff was so attentive to our sensitive eaters including nut allergies, gluten free and picky eaters. They came over several times to those guests to make sure their food was right. We were also able to have an ice cream sundae bar.

Gary is so sweet. Throughout the whole process, he let us change things here and there. I also enjoyed that I got to try some of their menu at their Tasting Night we were invited to. Some vendors were so weird about not letting us try their food. I still don't really understand not being able to taste something you are going to spend thousands of dollars for.

Our venue required a lot of setup including renting tables and chairs. Gary was great with all these details and working with our event planner to get the right vision for what we wanted. It came out perfect!

5 Stars... that says it all. Gary and Creative Catering were absolutely fabulous for our November wedding. Being so close to Thanksgiving, we chose to have the pork tenderloin and the haddock. We had 5 various appetizers. Some we tried at the tasting and some we did not. After the tasting at the mansion in Beverly, we were confident that any of our choices would be excellent! We loved the food at our wedding but the best part was all the unsolicited compliments we got when we returned from our honeymoon. Today, over a month later, someone called to ask who we used for a caterer. You will NOT be disappointed. Gary & Creative are the best. I plan to use them again sometime soon.
