Crisp Catering provided a very professional service with extremely good responsiveness, and the food was great. It was a pleasure to work with Joe, and he responded to each of my innumerable emails in a very short time, and even when I turned into a crazy bride panicking about champagne glasses, and forgot to figure out the cake cutting, Crisp Catering responded to me reasonably, and solved minor problems at the reception without needing input. We loved the menu (the best that we read for our budget, by far), and the food was amazing. Crisp also provided the linens, china, and flatware, so we didn't have to hire a rental company. We hired Crisp 5 months before the wedding to replace a caterer that was being problematic, and the level of sanity of our wedding was much more reasonable as soon as we made that change. It was a pleasure working with professionals who do their job very well, and we couldn't be happier with the food that was served. Again, the menu was wonderful for our budget, and Joe answered every question entirely reasonably. I would happily hire Crisp for future parties again, since working with Joe made my planning much easier.

The food was amazing. Joe, the owner customized the menu for us and we were very satisfied. The reason we can't give 5 stars all around is I felt like they sent inexperienced staff at our event. Joe wasnt there and hasnt followed up with us at all since then. We did Buffett and there was a huge time difference from when they cleared the plates to when they set up the dessert station. Plus, they misspelled the bride's name on the menu announcement. Fortunately, the food was better than the service and we got compliments all around.
As a side note, it was a bit challenging getting a hold of Joe. He didn't finalize the contract until a few days before the wedding even though I followed up with him for weeks.

Joe and his crew catered at our daughter's wedding at the Old Sugar Mill last weekend, & it was magnificent! We have had consistent raves about the food: "the best wedding food ever!" is the recurring response. Further, Joe's staff were efficient, courteous, & worked cooperatively with the staff from other vendors. This company is nothing but fabulous, & we recommend them for ANY event!

We used Crisp Catering for our wedding and it was one of our best decisions! Both my husband and are foodies and didn't want the normal wedding fare. Crisp offered us unique menus with absolutely delicious food. Joe and his staff go above and beyond not only with their delectable and amazing dishes, but their customer service as well. Any question that I had before the wedding, Joe answered promptly. We needed to make a couple adjustments to the menu and he made it fast and easy. The evening of our wedding, his staff made the reception area look great and helped the dinner run smoothly. And on top of it, I had several guests tell me after the wedding that it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding!
A particularly sweet moment of the night, was when Joe himself hunted down my husband while we were taking pictures after the ceremony and offered him a plate of sliders. I had told Joe that my husband would be sorry to miss that part of the cocktail hour and Joe made it his business to get my hubby some. I was impressed with Crisp from the start of the process through the end, and would definitely recommend them to anyone in search of the best caterer in Sac!

Joe and his crew did an amazing job for our wedding. When we met Joe for our initial consultation and food tasting, we instantly connected with Joe and loved the food. We were excited about our menu.

My husband and I have been to many weddings, and we’ve never heard of anyone raving about the food. We still receive compliments about our food even months after our wedding. Our friends and family loved everything from the mashed potato martini bar to the late night street tacos. Many mentioned how they went back for seconds and even thirds. (On a side note: Joe threw in the late night street tacos and bacon/bacon dust/pancetta bites for free. After signing our catering contract, we ran into Joe at a Bridal Fair at the Old Sugar Mill. A complimentary late night snack was offered as a promotion for future brides and grooms who signed with Crisp Catering. Although we had already signed our catering contract, Joe decided to give us a complimentary late night snack, too. We didn’t even ask for it. What a great guy!)

The setup was not only beautiful but also organized. We decided to have a buffet dinner. We were a little worried because sometimes guests complain about long lines. The setup allowed for four lines, which kept guests moving and happy.

We can’t say enough about Joe. He is extremely friendly, easy-going, accommodating, responsive and professional. We highly recommend Crisp Catering for any special event.

I was fortunate to be introduced to Joe Thompson through my mother who uses Joes services for her Seminars. She raved about his food from previous events. I had been shopping for caterers for ever and it seemed that the hor devours seemed to rack up the price tremendously! So much that I was going to go with a very simple catering menu and do the cocktail hour myself... however I wasn't ready to let it turn into a backyard BBQ looking appetizer hour. Joe was so flexable about doing as much or as little as I needed (I had originally just planned on utilizing him for some of the appetizers and then adding in my own to keep cost down), that I just decided to go with him for the whole thing! I was on a tight budget and there were no hidden costs as is seemed to be with other caterers (and many I ran into insisted on not allowing me to use alternate vendors for things such as linen and table settings etc... which didn't set well with this Type A personality bride!) Although the final sticker price did get some sticker shock it's hard to stomach handing out that kind of money from you savings account all at once but that is with many parts of the wedding! (but when it all came out, I don't think I would have found nearly as good of food for the price!!! EVERYONE RAVED OVER IT! Joe was so flexible he took a reciepe from my favorite dish at one of my favorite restaurants and made it for my wedding menu, and the change was made less than 2 weeks before the wedding! I could go on and on but I think there is a limit to the review box! Needless to say, you won't be disappointed!

Crisp catering went above and beyond our expectations at our wedding! Every guest both my wife and I spoke with said that the food was incredible, and that the servers were very polite and professional. With the help of Joe Thompson, the proprietor, we decided to serve in a station-style served buffet which allowed our guests to mingle rather than be secluded to their tables for dinner. We were also able to meet with the head Chef Jerrad who helped us to create our menu based on seasonal ingredients so that everything would taste as good as it looks; and it definitely did! One of the highlights of the meal was the mashed potato martini bar which included three different types of mashed potatoes, with every topping imaginable, served in a large martini glasses. This was a huge hit with all of our guests. Joe, who happens to be an ordained minister, also performed our wedding ceremony. He helped us to customize the ceremony so that it was exactly what we wanted. I constantly recommend Crisp to everyone I know, and I will definitely be using them in the future.
