Denise and the East Beach Catering team were perfect! Denise was very, very helpful from the beginning and she made the process so easy and made me feel at ease the whole time. She helped me, not only with planning of our feast, but also with A LOT of the logistical details. I don't know what I would have done without her. On the day of, the team was very professional and went above and beyond, as well as Denise! All our guests absolutely loved our food and they still mention it to this day. Highly recommend Denise and her team for your wedding day or any other big day you have planned!

From the very first phone call to the last sip of our signature drink at the reception, we knew we had made the perfect choice with East Beach Catering and Cathy! Being a fellow event management vendor and for this event, the mother of the bride, I was especially picky! Unfamiliar with Virginia Beach area vendors, Cathy immediately became a friend and assisted me with becoming familiar with the area and introduced me to some of the best of the best of vendors!!! Our guests are still talking about how spectacular every bite of every course was at the reception. Given our recipe for the signature drink, EBC made the batches to perfection! As we were acquiring our dream team of vendors, all we had to mention was that Cathy was our secured caterer and every vendor we spoke with wanted to get onboard. Thank you to Cathy and her team for giving our daughter and new son an unforgettable dream experience!

East Beach Catering was there with my husband and I on one of the most important days of our life…our wedding day! I started communicating with Cathy (the kindhearted and fearless leader of the entire operation) via phone calls and e-mails and felt that we would be a great fit together. My husband is in the military and we tried to work out a taste test session that could include him, but it just wasn’t going to happen. She was so understanding that he couldn’t be there and was fine with me bringing my friend in his place! The tasting really sealed the deal and made me even more excited for the big day than I already was! The food was delicious, the presentation was beautiful (which was very important to me), and the customer service was top tier! It was an all-around fabulous experience leading up to the big day.

On our wedding day we were so thrilled to see it all come together and it exceeded our expectations in every way! We are about a month into our marriage and we still have guests contacting us telling us how delicious the food was…the appetizers during the cocktail hour were a HUGE HIT!! My husband got to try everything for the first time just as the guests did and he was extremely satisfied and is still talking about how tasty and perfect everything was! We highly recommend East Beach for any event that you might have! Delicious and gorgeous food, the perfect bar set up (very important to us!), and an extremely patient and hardworking staff…what more could one ask for?! Thank you so much to Cathy and the entire East Beach Catering team!!

A well deserved 5 out of 5!! East Beach was phenomenal-- not only do they have DELICIOUS food (that our guests raved about), but they are also great to work with. I did my research and even went to another tasting before picking East Beach and they blow the local competition out of the water! There was also plentyy of food! Other caterers are somewhat stingy and charge per each individual appetizer, but East Beach makes sure that there is plenty to go around (because believe me, your guests will want seconds!) With that taken into consideration, they are very reasonably priced compared to other local caterers. Cathy was so friendly and helpful at our tasting. She took the time to chat with us and provide her advice on various aspects of planning beyond just the food. Last but not least, Denise, their event coordinator was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!! Her attention to detail, responsiveness, organization, and ability to get things done quickly and effectively was a life saver! Definitely one of the best people to work with throughout all of my wedding planning. She created a detailed floorplan for our reception that was color coded and labeled. She always called or emailed me back immediately. Her attention to even the smallest details made me feel like she truly cared about my wedding. We had a last minute emergency of almost not being able to get our liquor license (2 days before the wedding!!!) and Denise calmed me down (I was almost in tears) and created a plan b immediately. I knew that I could count on her to follow through and not miss a single detail that we had discussed throughout the planning process. East Beach is the BEST!

I would refer anyone to East Beach for their wedding. Cathy was an absolute pleasure to work with. And the food was absolutely delicious. Everything was perfect. The staff was awesome and very friendly and kept everyone happy. Everyone that came to the wedding is still taking about the food. We even had leftovers and Cathy packed up everything for us. She even packed us up some tacos that were put together for us to snack on later. We are still eating leftovers a week later. :) We were very pleased with East Beach and would totally use them again and refer any new bride to them for catering.

Wow! All I can say is wow! I have never had so many people comment at a wedding on how wonderful the food was. The quality and presentation far exceeded my expectations......and I think everyone at the wedding :). On top of the amazing food and presentation.....most brides don't get a chance to eat at their own weddings. Cathy and her team made sure my groom and I were eating and we even had to go plates packed in our get away car. People will remember your food. They may not remember the colors or centerpieces. But they will remember the food and experience of the wedding. Cathy and her team my our wedding memorable. And if you are deciding on the menu definitely get the macaroni and cheese bar.....to.....die......for!

My husband and I contracted Kathy and her staff to cater our wedding in May. We enjoyed our experience from beginning to end. She is very personable/professional. The food is absolutely delicious and flavorful. She made sure we were taken care of the whole day, we felt like royalty. Thank you for making our experience so sweatless and delightful. We will definitely use East Beach again. God bless you!

If you want to have the best wedding food ever, then you must book East Beach!! I've known this catering company from the moment I moved to Virginia Beach and could not wait to get married so they could cater my wedding! Cathy is the most amazing women and knows how to make your wedding absolutely perfect!! I got married on May 16th (almost 2 months ago) and guests are still raving about how awesome the food was at my wedding! It truly is so delicious!!!! We had a country-themed but classic wedding so we had everything from pigs in a blanket to sweet potato ham biscuits and then coconut shrimp and bacon wrapped scallops, buffalo chicken dip, tuna bites, beef tenderloin, BBQ, mashed potato bar and more and more!!! Every single item was mouth-watering and I seriously would eat it every day!!! The displays were immaculate and the utensils were adorable and the set up was country and perfect for us and the theme! Cathy knew everything to do without me even having to say. Then, when it decided to downpour rain - her staff stuck it out and got drenched until a tent was set up for the bartenders. They worked through everything to make sure our wedding day was perfect. Seth and I are so grateful and so honored that Cathy and the EBC staff were there for our wedding!! Cathy, I cannot even begin to thank you for making my wedding the best day of my life!! I would not have wanted anyone else there on my day except you!! Thank you a million times for being so so so AWESOME at what you do!!!!!!! EBC is the best!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!

Cathy and her staff helped make our wedding one of the most memorable moments of our lives. From our very first meeting, she listed to what we wanted, and then she used her expertise to make our vision a reality. Not only was the food delicious (over 10 guests made a point of contacting me to let me know it was the best food they ever had at a wedding), the whole experience was stress free.
She made our venue look like something out of a magazine, and her staff were not only extremely professional, but they were helpful and kind to all of our guests. No matter what accommodation I requested, Cathy went above and beyond to make it happen.
Finally, and I think that it is what meant the most, Cathy and her staff seemed to care as much as we did that everything went perfectly on our special day. I would unequivocally recommend East Beach to anyone planning an event. You will never be disappointed with what she provides, and you will never feel stressed. Because I was able to turn all of the details of the reception over to East Beach, I was able to focus on the little niceties that make guests feel welcome.
