Delectables Fine Catering is a Full Service Catering company that specializes in creating memorable wedding receptions, impressive corporate gatherings, and elegant parties with a touch of class.
Delectables is the only Tampa Bay-area caterer awarded “Caterer of the Year” three times by the National Association of Catering Executives. Delectables has also won “Best in Show”, and “Best Menu” from the same organization. We were also named “The Peoples Choice” by the Palm Harbor Chamber of Commerce. Delectables is on the preferred catering lists at Higgins Hall, Ruth Eckerd Hall, Matheos Hall, Mirror Lake Lyceum, Kapok Pavilion, St. Pete Coliseum, St. Nicholas/Spunos Pappas Community Center, Lange Farms, and the Florida Botanical Gardens, some of the most prestigious reception sites in the area.
In our nearly two-decades of business, Delectables has done corporate catering for such notable clients as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cirque de Soleil, The Ironman & Irongirl, Superbowl Champions Ball and ESPN. We are the caterer of choice for many local celebrities, VIP corporate events, and destination coordinators.
As charter members of the Wedding and Event Professionals of Tampa Bay and Macy’s Bridal Network, we can refer you to other reliable, reputable event businesses in the area.
Our modern 10,000 square foot facility is located in the heart of Palm Harbor.
Included in our wedding packages are a wide variety of theme props, pillars, ivy, and accent materials to enhance the décor of the reception. We include a complimentary ice sculpture, water display fountain, restaurant gift cards, or honeymoon gift basket with wedding packages of one hundred or more guests.
Our sister company, Affordable Table & Chair Rentals, can provide you with reasonably priced quality tables and chairs for your event.
Individualized menus ensure your guests enjoy the perfect event. To assist you with menu selection, we offer complimentary tastings the first Saturday of every month (RSVP required). Custom tastings and site inspections can be arranged for a nominal fee.
Our enthusiastic management team presides over every event with meticulous oversight. Our reputation as a high-end caterer endures as we continue to be the forerunner of new catering trends and ideas in the Tampa Bay area.
Our chefs/owners are artists who put pride into their culinary creations:
♦ Chef Nick Adams has nearly thirty years of experience in the culinary industry, winning numerous awards in culinary competitions.

My husband and I went to three different catering company tastings, but in the end we chose Delectables to cater our wedding and everyone loved their meals! We had a formal sit down dinner and guest were given the option of chicken or a combo plate of chicken and steak, both were cooked to perfection! My experience with the staff was pleasant the entire time. Delectables offers a food tasting every first Saturday of the month (we attended 2) the tasting include desserts and the pasta bar (amazing!) We would recommend this catering company to anyone looking to host a large event. I worked mainly with Michele Whitaker who is an absolute delight!

If I could rate Delectables a 6, I would. Every single guest at the wedding commented about how awesome the food was. The entire staff was attentive and professional. They were courteous with any modifications during set up and worked well with our florist and other vendors.
Leading up to the wedding, we attended multiple "open-house" catering tastings at their facility and were never disappointed. It really helped us settle on a menu.
We could not be more pleased with the service and food from Delectables!

We had a little bump with the linens, but it was due to a miscommunication. As the reception was at a private residence, a lot of decisions had to be made on the fly. The staff was very flexible and very accommodating. The guests raved about the food - particularly the shrimp and grits appetizer and mac & cheese!
