At first, we thought that Durham Catering was on the pricey side for us--but after our tasting and especially when compared to other options, they were the clear choice for us! Their presentation was extremely professional, and all of the food items were delicious and flavorful without being overwhelming. They were clearly experienced with catering weddings, and in combination with our planner, they quickly and smoothly accommodated any and all changes (and we had a lot)! I especially appreciated that they even came on site during the week before the wedding to look at the space and go over menu items with me again. I would highly recommend them for any event!

Love love love the people at Durham Catering Company. I had numerous amounts of guests tell me that the food was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. They were so easy to work with and went above and beyond in the service! And the food is PHENOMENAL.

Durham Catering Co. made our wedding food a HUGE hit! People are still remarking how good the BBQ buffet was at our outdoor event. They worked with us to smoke a whole hog onsite and despite pouring rain all weekend, all went off without a hitch and the fun and authentic eastern NC-style barbecue menu was AMAZING. I even had some "Northern" (Yankee) family members praising the tender pork 'que, the to-die-for collards, slaw, potatoes, and pimento mac-n-cheese cubes. Thank you DCC for impressing an event full of foodies and picky eaters, filling our bellies on a stressful day, and delivering above and beyond for our big event!

Overall I was very happy with Durham Catering for my wedding at Duke Gardens. Everything went off without a hitch on the actual day, the food was good, the bartenders were wonderful, and the staff was very helpful and accommodating with everything that needed to be set up beforehand like decorations. We received many compliments on the food and service and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out on the big day. They were also very helpful and flexible with the many, many questions I had in the months leading up to the wedding and were willing to have as many calls as I wanted to cover those, which I appreciated very much.

There were a few things that gave me concern while working with Durham Catering, but overall did not seem to affect actual event. I noticed a lot of the staff turned over from when I first contacted them, and it made me nervous along the way, but it seems they were able to hand everything off well. One thing that was disappointing is that our original event captain said he would meet with us as many times as needed, but when we received our new one I was only able to meet with her once. Also, they have a partnership with Rise Biscuits and Donuts so we used them to get donut holes for our reception, but we were surprised by how little communication there was between the two, and it was essentially like dealing with Rise as a separate vendor. In the end it was not a big deal, but we incorrectly assumed that there would be more coordination between the two. These concerns overall ended up being small, though, and I'm sure any large event may have similar hiccups along the way.

Overall I would recommend Durham Catering and appreciate all their hard work!

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!

We were very pleased with the menu options, and the food we chose was absolutely delicious. We worked with Jen to get things planned, and she was so very helpful and patient! I had many questions, and she responded quickly and was always positive. Jen listened to what we wanted, offered her professional opinions, and fully supported our decisions. The staff who worked our event were great, especially our captain. He was very helpful and flexible, and made everything happen the way we wanted it done.
