Durham Catering had a great sales team but when it came to delivering on our wedding day they came up short. One of their five promised catering staff did not show up for the event, causing a cascade of issues including: no water service at the table, inability to recover from a broken wine bottle opener without the groom's involvement (they only brought one), cake/coffee just in time for guest departure, etc. When we brought these issues up after the event, their General Manager became hostile and agreed to minimal compensation. Had we not said anything, we were sure they would have charged us for "extra staff time" as the poor staff that did show up had to stay late to make up for the no show. While Durham Catering might seem like an established company, they have had a lot of recent staff turnover. Their new team is disorganized and incompetent.

We were so happy with DCC for our wedding. The food was delicious and we got compliment after compliment. Beyond that, the staff was professional and so friendly. Our correspondence was answered quickly. We LOVED being able to provide our own alcohol and they made it so easy for us. DCC also cares for their staff and pays them well above minimum wage to support better business practices.

Durham Catering Company was my first (and only) choice as our caterer. They were an absolute joy to work with and were very accommodating of our requests for Southern Indian and Southern US foods. They did an impeccable job with the food (we still hear rave reviews of the food today!) and the staff was so lovely to work with.

Durham Catering was so easy to work with and the food was AMAZING! They also handle a lot of the organizing of what we would need with the rental company, so they only thing we had to do was pick up the dishes and linens. They made that process easy and stress free. And we received so many great comments about the food from out guest, that we know everyone enjoyed it!

Jen and Durham Catering really did an amazing job throughout our whole process. Jen was so easy to work with, accessible, and helped us put together a delicious and creative menu; the gnocchi and short ribs were amazing, along with the crab cakes and beef tenderloin appetizers! It’s hard to pick my favorite! Numerous guests told us how wonderful the food was!

I highly recommend Durham Catering for any event for their excellent quality food and great service with no stress!

This company was fantastic. The food was wonderful, and we had guests raving about all of it. They were also awesome when it came to the bar - we were able to supply our own alcohol, which helped with the cost, and yet the bartender still mixed our signature cocktails perfectly. They left us with no stress over the food and drinks at all - even just hours before the wedding, when they asked where the soda was (we were supposed to supply it, but had completely forgotten!) - they said "no big deal, we'll get it!"

I'd definitely recommend Durham Catering, and would use them again if I ever do an event in the area!

Jennifer Shepherd (Jen) and Durham Catering really did an amazing job throughout our whole process, from our first meeting with Durham catering to the take down after the reception. Jen was so easy to work with. She made sure we knew all of our food options as we made some changes along the way, and there were a ton of options. She helped us to cut back on certain foods/beverages where they didn't seem necessary, and add more where it made sense. There was never any push towards more expensive items. She was just great to work with! Oh yeah, and the food was excellent. Our guests enjoyed everything. Thank you, Jen, and thanks to Durham Catering. Highly Recommended!

Outstanding is the word for Durham Catering! We used Durham Catering for our daughter’s Oct 5th wedding that was held at Snipe’s Farm Retreat near Chapel Hill. We choose Durham Catering over a couple of other catering vendors that had been recommended to us. We couldn’t be happier with Durham Catering. They are the most friendly and professional team you could hope to work with on a wedding! They made the planning process so painless. We worked primarily with Jennifer, who will take care of you from start to finish. Even as our guest number began to grow from 100 to +150 way beyond our wildest dreams. Jennifer and her team stepped right in to help us reconfigure the table layout to accommodate the crowd so comfortably and we still were able to have a nice dance floor.
Durham Catering’s food is the best part! Perfectly cooked and so good, there are just amazing items to pick from on their large menu. We also had quite a few vegetarians and they were very pleased with the selection of items we had for them.
The bride and groom were so delighted that the DC team took such good care of them during the dinner and made sure they had some leftovers packed up to take with them!
I’m still getting compliments from friends that we had the best ever wedding reception food! We highly recommend Durham Catering for any event. If you want to experience excellent quality food and great service with no stress, look no further!

Durham Catering Company catered our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. We had a small group of 30 people at the Vineyards at Southpoint. Our event was a smashing success! The venue was great and I cannot say enough about this catering company! All of the food was delicious. Their wait staff so professional that we hardly noticed them. Our son was the first of many to come to our table complimenting the food. Thanks Durham Catering Company for your part in blessing our family richly.
