Nicholas catered our AMAZING wedding at Lighthouse Point Park this past October. We interviewed a few caterers before choosing Nicholas and Fitzgerald's. He was down-to-earth, honest, and genuinely cared about making our event special. We felt like he wanted to get to know us, rather than feeling like "just another couple," as we felt at some other caterers. We knew we wanted something a little bit different and non-traditional to complement the venue, and he helped us create a boardwalk-themed menu that our guests raved about! With Nicholas' help, we were able to customize everything on our menu, even down to the cute containers he used to serve the dishes! We also loved that his staff could serve the liquor we purchased from another vendor, allowing us to serve the types of liquor we like best. We really got EXACTLY what we wanted at very reasonable prices. Without Nicholas and his staff, our wedding would not have been possible. We are eternally grateful and would highly recommend Fitzgerald's!

soooo yummy! Nick did our outdoor wedding last month in Groton Long Point and we are still eating leftovers! delicious food, we had the most amazing bacon wrapped scallops, shrimp cocktail, steak, yummy asparagus and lots of others! He was sharp, replying immediately to any concerns, easy going and sweet to all my crazy bridal questions. The service was spectacular, the bartender made excellent drinks and food was amazing. They packed up all the leftovers (and there were lots!!!) for us and cleaned everything up so well! Amazing, professional service and yummy!

Seriously brides- GO WITH FITZGERALD'S! You will be so, so glad you did. Nick was unbelievably kind, helpful, responsive, and fun to work with. He answered every silly question I had and addressed every concern. Fitzgerald's allowed us to plan our own menu and have it served on our schedule. Our guests, many of whom had admitted to being worried about a "cocktail reception," raved about the quality and quantity of the food. Nick made it all run seamlessly. I honestly felt so lucky to have found a caterer that listened to what we wanted and really seemed to care about our wedding and enjoyment. I cannot recommend Fitzgerald's highly enough!!!!

Food was amazing!!! Everyone loved everything they had. Grilled chicken with mango was a huge success! Staff was so nice and attentive!!! We were married at lighthouse in New Haven, CT where there is no kitchen on site. They did such a good job, no one even noticed that everything was cooked right on site! Great job, would highly recommend!

This guy has it figured out. Everything promised and more was delivered with fantastic service and beautiful presentation. I couldn't imagine it being better in any way. On top of it, Nicholas was the least expensive full service caterer we interviewed. He includes all the stuff in one package. Other caterers gave us a price and then started adding on rentals and service fees which more than doubled the price! One even said if we didn't buy the booze from them, they were going to charge us per drink poured plus an uncorking fee for bottles on the table. I am so glad we ran from them. My Mom and Dad are glad to. Delicious food, wonderful service and an incredible overall experience. Call Nicholas and you'll guarantee a perfect reception your family will talk about for years to come!

Dreams can come true! Nicholas and his staff were incredible! The food was amazing! My mom is getting like three calls a day from my guests talking about how great the food was. Nicholas is the perfect caterer to lead you through the process in a very relaxed fashion. He was great from tasting to booking to the end of our night. He makes it easy. Look no further, Fitzgerald's!

Nicolas Fitzgerald saved my daughter's wedding. Ten days before the event, my ex-friend caterer stated she did not want to do the wedding. A dear friend had Nicolas for her wedding, as had her husband's sister. She contacted Nicholas and
fortunately for me the date was available because of a cancellation. I signed the contract nine days before the event and six days before the event my daughter determined and confirmed the menu.

I have the highest of praise, appreciation, and professionalism reverence for Nicolas Fitzgerald and his catering expertise. He was my "mitzvah man" and wedding savior of 2009. He was able to accomplish a wedding miracle in less than nine days. The event was beautiful, the quality and quantity of food was supreme, and the service was perfect. I am forever grateful for his professional skills and services. Let this wedding tale be forever told to all future mother of the brides to not use "so-called friends as caterers". My story has a very happy ending thanks to this very capable and highly accomplished caterer.

Let me start off by saying that Nick Shoppe is awesome! He was extremely helpful and flexible, and I would recommend him to anyone. The food and service was great! His service is great because he includes the china, silver, glasses, and linens which makes it so much easier when you are having your reception at a place that does not have any of those items. Him and his staff are awesome because they will help set up your tables the way you want them w/ favors, etc. If you ask for it, he will basically do it. (w/ in reason) The best part too is that his packages are very reasonably priced.
