I checked wedding, but this was a rehearsal dinner on Kiawah Island (didn't see a place to check that specifically). The food, service and clean up were all done very professionally and they helped make this a great gathering. In addition to food service they provided a bar tender.

Our thanks to Nicole and everyone for their help. I will definitely use them again when the opportunity arises.

We cannot say enough good things about Gourmet Bay. From day 1 they were awesome. Nicole is the nicest person, quickly answers emails, and gives great advice. Our day ran very smoothly with her as our coordinator. The food they made was the best wedding food I've ever had, and all of our friends and family thought so as well.

Gourmet Bay was a pleasure to work with. They did a fantastic job at my wedding. They made sure that my guest were taking care of, but I love the fact that they kept bringing me and my husband food since we didn't get to sit down to eat. They provided us with an elebroate care package to take home at the end of the night and made sure it was put in our car before we left. They also provided a nice care package for my parents too. I would recommend Gourmet Bay to anyone. Nicole was easy to work with and very responsive if I had any questions. I also loved the taste testing and how it was set up and what chef prepared.

Gourmet Bay Catering was an absolute delight to work with from the very first email I sent them all the way through the conclusion of the wedding. Nicole was our contact there and she was incredibly helpful and insightful about the menu. She was on site the day of the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly, and the entire staff was very professional. She even put us in the car with a bag of leftovers and a bottle of champagne (thank you Nicole!). Chef Patrick was able to make a few suggestions on how to change one or two things to fit what we were looking for and he came up with amazing alternatives. Their pricing is very reasonable, Nicole worked with me until our budget was exactly where we wanted it and we still had a menu we loved. The tasting is what won us over! The second I tried it all, there was no doubt in my mind that their food needed to be served at our wedding!

Just so you have an idea: for our cocktail hour passers, we had had gazpacho sippers topped with a grilled shrimp, fried green tomato and pimento cheese, waffles & fried chicken with lavender syrup (seriously?! so delish) and finally brie with apricot chutney. Also during cocktail hour we had a self serve ceviche station (Chef Patrick really out did himself there!). Then for dinner we had three different stations, each with their own sides, all of which were perfectly paired and delicious AND (my personal favorite) the chef attended grilled cheese station (tomato, basil & mozz). We really wanted to give our guests a splash of Charleston fair, but with a twist of "different" and "fun" and Chef Patrick and Nicole pulled it off without a hitch. I am being completely honest when I say that our guests still remark how much they enjoyed the food. I would not even have to think twice about hiring Gourmet Bay again if I had the chance, they were extraordinary.

Gourmet Bay Catering provided a brunch the Sunday after our daughter's wedding on Kiawah Island. Arranging the details was very easy, thanks to Nicole. As we are not locals, we really counted on her expertise to ensure that we had the menu we wanted. We guessed on the number of attendees, so we were especially appreciative of Gourmet Bay's flexibility to serve the crowd. Can't speak more highly of them. They were fantastic.

Gourmet Bay was amazing! Nicole was great throughout the process of deciding on menu options that stayed within our budget but at the same time exceeded our expectations of the type of food we wanted at our wedding! To start, Nicole and Patrick put together a fantastic tasting for us. Patrick brought out dishes while Nicole went through details with us and helped answer all of my (many) questions as well as give us advice on vendors. After the tasting, we were sold on using them as our wedding caterer. And the food at our wedding ended up being DELICIOUS! We got so many compliments from our guests on how it wasn't your average wedding food. And not to mention, they packed us up a basket to take back to our hotel so we could relax and have a meal after! I can't give them enough compliments to describe how happy we were with Gourmet Bay as our wedding caterer. I would absolutely recommend them to any bride!

And not to mention, they packed us up a basket to take back to our hotel so we could relax and have a meal after! I can't give them enough compliments to describe how happy we were with Gourmet Bay as our wedding caterer. I would absolutely recommend them to any bride! Read less

Gourmet Bay provided us with absolutely delicious food. Every guest complimented our food and thanked us for not serving up traditional wedding fare. I heard praises about every single food item. The pimento cheese fried green tomato appetizers had people begging for more to be brought out and the fried chicken with a honey glaze had people commenting that the item was a delectable crossover between a doughnut and a chicken. Although every single guest left stuffed we still received leftover food to take home. It was a sign of how good everything was when guests who been to the wedding stopped at our house the next day and eagerly shared our leftovers – excited to be eating the same food again. The staff was professional and courteous, making our guests feel welcome and able to ask for anything.

Nicole Garrand was not only the manager for Gourmet Bay but also my wedding planner. She was AMAZING! There is no way I would have been able to pull off this wedding without her. The next day as guests uploaded their pictures everyone wrote #bestweddingever because it truly was and most of that was due to Nicole. She is organized, creative, knows what works and what doesn't, and has fantastic taste. She is a take charge type of person which is really necessary when you are trying to organize everyone at the rehearsal or trying to get the best deal from a vendor. You don’t have to worry about looking like a Bridezilla because you can just back and relax and know Nicole has everything handled. She even had a couple of surprises for me on my wedding day which made the venue look even more fabulous. If you want your wedding to be stress free and while bringing your vision to life use Nicole. As a person who gets hives when they are stressed, this was extremely important to me. I cannot say enough good things about her.

I wanted a more unconventional menu for our wedding reception and so I asked Nicole if Gourmet Bay was interested. Of course they were and I know them to be a very capable, well-respected caterer, but I was still nervous because I asked for several things that were not on the "menus" thus I was not sure if it was outside their comfort zone. What was I thinking.... it was ALL incredible! I have never been to an event where the food got raved reviews from so many guests. Their Grill Cheese Bar was a huge hit (my safe pick to make sure there was a comfort food that all could enjoy)! But so was the variety on our "World Table" including the lamb curry, beef skewers with chimichurri dipping sauce, delicious mediterranean couscous and well... everything . And bravo for the variety of house-made pickled vegetables on the salad station. Nicole... Patrick... you outdid yourself. Thanks for making the food a delicious and fond memory at our event. Awesome... absolutely awesome!

Gourmet Bay Catering was the best catering service I have ever worked with. Nicole was there every time I needed to ask a question, and Patrick, the chef, was there when Nicole wasn't! The food was SO good - everyone loved everything - local flounder and great beef, roasted vegetables and delicious rice dish. The servers were SO nice, and responsive, and did everything for us, so we didn't have to think of a thing! I'd recommend them highly, and definitely use them again for a function in the Charleston area. Thank you Gourmet Bay Catering! Jane Pasquini

Having a destination wedding proved to be difficult at times with planning from another city, but Nicole, the event manager with Gourmet Bay, made the catering portion so easy and such a pleasant experience.
We were only able to come to Charleston once during our six month planning period, and we made sure to schedule a tasting with Gourmet Bay. Nicole was so polite, welcoming, and answered all of our questions. She was respectful to our budget and gave us tips on how to stay close to it, which we greatly appreciated. Needless to say, the food tasted fantastic and the family style presentation was exactly what we wanted. Chef Patrick came from the kitchen and greeted us as well to make sure that we were happy with the menu. We booked without hesitation!

We got married November 16, 2013 at Old Wide Awake Plantation. Gourmet Bay arrived right on time and went to work. After the ceremony, their neatly dressed servers walked with passed hors d'oeuvres, which our guests were quite impressed with. The dinner table service was exceptional as well. The staff also assisted with lighting candles, setting up, cutting the cakes, clearing tables, and refilling the beverage containers.

Nicole also went above and beyond her call of duty when we had an issue with the bartender that we booked with another company. He didn't show up! She quickly handled the problem behind the scenes and made sure to keep the stress away from the bride and groom.

We are so grateful that we found Gourmet Bay and to have had the opportunity to work with such an AMAZING team. Nicole, Patrick, the servers, and staff: thank you so much for making our wedding so beautiful AND delicious!!

Gourmet Bay was a wonderful company to work with. They were very professional, the food was amazing, and they were always making sure we were well fed and had a drink in our hands during the wedding. The grilled cheese station was the biggest hit with our guests, but everyone complimented the food. There wasn't a single thing bad said about the food, it's so good. I would use them again in a hearbeat.

Nicole, Pat, and their team served excellent food flawlessly at the Welcome Party I hosted for a destination wedding weekend. Nicole handled every detail during the event which allowed me to really enjoy the party. The presentations were spectacular and the service moved seamlessly through the crowd. They served the right amount of food at the right time during a 4 hour cocktail party...completely cleaned up...and even packed the leftovers neatly in our fridge! Not only was Nicole a true pleasure to work with who thought of everything, all the guests are still talking about how delicious the food was a week later! I will definitely be using Gourmet Bay for our next event!

We came down to the Kiawah area back in Feb 2013 to plan for the Oct 12, 2013 Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. Most of the planning (menu selection and other items) was done that weekend with numerous emails and phone calls between Nicole and myself to adjust menu changes, linen changes and other details throughout the following months. Nicole was always prompt in responding to my calls and emails. She was very helpful both in her suggestions and listening to my many concerns. When the event arrived, Nicole and her team had everything set up as we had planned. The food was plentiful, it was beautifully displayed and labeled, and it was delicious. I saw most people going back for seconds. We had some left overs that went home with the Groomsmen and they thoroughly enjoyed them. Nicole is a professional and I would highly recommend Gourmet Bay Catering for an event or a even a smaller gathering while you are in the Kiawah area. I was never concerned that our Rehearsal dinner would not be a success with her helping me plan it. Thank you Nicole.

Gourmet Bay catering was excellent to work with! I first contacted Nicole to discuss menu options and schedule a tasting. She was extremely helpful from day one. My husband and I do not live in Charleston, but we were able to handle all details over the phone and through email with no problems. The tasting was relaxed, yet professional, and we were able to fine tune our choices for the reception. I made several changes along the way, but the staff was always accommodating and willing to work with us. I have received numerous compliments on the food at our reception. It was wonderful!! The servers did a great job and the guests seemed to love the variety of choices. I requested several estimates from caterers all over the Charleston area, but Gourmet Bay was absolutely the best value for the quality and quantity of food and service. Their staff went above and beyond to make our reception even better than we planned. The chef was awesome and I would recommend the catering to anyone planning a party or event. If you are looking for a caterer that truly cares about what you want for your day, chose Gourmet Bay. They make the entire process seamless and enjoyable.

Gourmet Bay went above and beyond their catering duties to make sure that my wedding reception was flawless. I worked with Nicole in the planning stages and Erin for our tasting and day-of. First, let me start with all of the ways Gourmet Bay pitched in to help - most of which were things most caterers would not have done. I didn't have a wedding planner, so I asked if they'd be willing to help with spreading tablecloths, lighting candles and making sure floral arrangements were positioned correctly on tables. They had everything perfectly arranged (and it was a lot more than I had intended, and out of their purview - due to a different vendor who failed to fulfill their duties) when I arrived at the reception. I also had two tables, a cheese and dessert table, that I provided the food for, yet they were happy to set out the food for me and arrange it. Erin even contacted me to see if they could bring any extra platters/cake stands for me to use on those tables, which they were not even responsible for. I thought this was so generous! At the end of the reception, we launched floating lanterns. Erin's staff even helped with getting those out, distributed to guests and lit. I couldn't believe it! Now let me talk about the food... All of the food was exactly as it was in our tasting, no disappointments. Our pork tenderloin was probably even better - it was so tender and juicy. I was quite impressed. I originally got three catering quotes (also from Cru and Hambys) and Gourmet Bay was significantly lower than both. I'm confident that the food quality was as good or better than the other caterers, and clearly the staff at Gourmet Bay make them invaluable. Another way they stood out was their responsiveness to emails. I had excellent communication with them throughout the entire process. Clearly they were my favorite vendor of our entire wedding. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

It was so wonderful working with Gourmet Bay Catering and 'Day Planner' Nicole Garrand.

GBC went above and beyond to make sure that all of our needs were met in preparation for the event. On the day of, they were quick on their feet with any and all adjustments to ensure that everything was on time and that the food displays had a cohesive appearance with the overall wedding decor. The food was one of our most important parts of the wedding since it was the first time for some guests to taste southern cuisine. People were over the moon about how wonderful everything tasted and the different flavors.

Nicole Garrand was my 'Day Planner', but she made herself available for so much more. She made sure that I was comfortable and relaxed about the event and that all of my worries were taken off of my shoulders. She is also pretty amazing with floral bouquets and decor. I would highly recommend this catering company and Nicole Garrand as a Wedding / Day Planner. They are a jam packed team!!

What a cordial, charming group to have in your tiny kitchen. Fit right in with the mood and anticipated and made adjustments as needed. The food was delicious and beautifully displayed. Different hors d'oeuvres were passed in small enough quantity to be hot; then refreshed quickly. Washed and dried my personal china and silver we used. Left the kitchen immaculate with leftovers marked and packed in fridge. Bar tender also did a grand job -- had champagne poured and ready to pass when vows were over.

Nicole was wonderful! She was professional, friendly and helpful. She also knew the business very well. She was honest with me regarding what would be good to provide the guests at the reception and then what would be a waste of my money. She also stayed on budget.

Excellent food! We continue to get comments back from the guests saying how good the food tasted.

Could not have been more happy with the outcome of my wedding. The food was amazing! Especially Patricks fried chicken and waffles. Those were a hit.
Nicole was so supportive through the whole process and made everything so easy on me. She also made the most beautiful arrangements. I new exactly what I wanted and she created them perfectly. She also arranged all my rentals. She is truly a rock star!

Erin and Patrick with Gourmet Bay Catering were fabulous to work with. Erin went completely above and beyond our expectations. She really functioned like an event planner, providing crucial coordination with all vendors involved, and helped trouble-shoot on a major issue with the party rental company regarding the room set-up. Erin met with us three times prior to the event (once for the tasting and twice at our venue) to ensure that we were comfortable with the planning. She also kept the schedule flowing well during the event.

Patrick is a most talented chef. We were very pleased with the quality of the food and its presentation. I received a lot of great feedback on the food.

Neither my mother nor I live in Charleston, so wedding planning for us was more challenging. I will forever be grateful to Erin and Patrick for going above and beyond to help in any way that they could. They are a great team and strive hard to help and please their clients. I highly recommend them!

We were recently married in Folly Beach, SC. Gourmet Bay did an outstanding job from start to finish! The service was impeccable and the food was amazing. Our guests were blown away by the entire experience. Thanks to Nicole and the entire staff for making our wedding a event that people are still talking about. If you decide to serve appetizers, you MUST have the fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese! Just to die for!

Going with Gourmet Bay catering was the smartest decision I made while planning my wedding!

The original reason I selected GB, was because of the amazing responsiveness their staff showed to me. They were always EXTREMELY prompt at responding to emails and calls (something unheard of with many catering companies), happy to answer my questions, give me advice and help me with anything and everything.

When I went in for my tasting my decision to go with GB was further solidified. Gourmet Bay really rolled out the carpet for us, let us try anything and everything we were interested in- changed anything we didn't like and helped us create our dream wedding menu.

After we signed on the dotted line- the staff didn't just forget about us until our big day- but they checked in with me frequently, handled EVERYTHING rental wise for us (amazing) and were available anytime I had any questions about ANYTHING.

The day of our wedding- Nicole (our Gourmet Bay contact) not only helped to make my wedding LOOK like the event of my dreams (she helped set up linens and tables - talk about going above and beyond!!) but she made sure her staff brought their A-game. The servers were wonderful! Not to mention Chef Patrick, who was amazing in the kitchen. So many people have told me our food was the best they'd ever had at a wedding. Not only was it delicious- but it was displayed in a way that looked like a work of art!!! Everything food wise was perfect- EXCEPT for my wedding cake (which was NOT made by GB!!) Unbeknownst to me, my cake was slowly but surely melting and shifting during our reception- somehow the Gourmet Bay crew was able to (WITHOUT me knowing it) save the cake- by removing the bottom layer of a four layer cake and turning it into the perfect 3 layer cake of my dreams. WHAT TALENT!

I could go on and on and on... but will sum it up with this.... GO WITH GOURMET BAY- you will be glad you did.

The Gourmet Bay Catering team were amazing and I could not have asked for more for our wedding! They worked with me to make the shrimp and grits a little more "Louisiana" and the rest of the spread was delicious! We received tons of compliments on the food! Nicole was so helpful-making sure we had good during the ceremony and after-she even double checked my flower colors so she could get dome extra to put on the passed trays during cocktail hour. They assured never would not run out of food-my worst fear-and they were right! We had the left overs packed and brought to the after party for much needed late night eats! All in all Gourmet Bay was AMAZING and I would recommend them to anyone looking for good "wedding" food- esp. For out of town brides like me- seriously so helpful

Gourmet Bay Catering goes above and beyond to make dreams come true! Absolutely wonderful! My wedding needed some help the last few weeks and up to the last final hours. Graciously, the team of professionals at Gourmet Bay helped with decorations and setup, ordering the event rentals and coordinating them to work in the space, and of course, setup, serving, as well as clean-up of the space. I was also able to have my bouquets customly made, florals custom ordered and setup for both ceremony and reception. Did I mention the food yet!? WOW! The food is amazing! We hardly had any left after the wedding our guests loved the food so much! Special thanks to Nicole Garrand who helped me through everything from start to finish! I would recommend Gourmet Bay Catering and all their team members to any bride, as well as anyone looking for a catering company for a special event. Extremely professional, dependable, pleasant, and affordable!!!

I would recommend Gourmet Bay to anyone looking for a caterer in Charleston. My husband and I live about 3 hours away so all of our contact with Nicole was through email. She was always to accommodating and was open to all of our wants! She was always very quick to answer any of our questions through email. The food was great, all of the guests commented on it. Nicole and her staff were very friendly and helpful at our reception. Everything was kept clean and organized. Nicole even helped clean up our flowers and tablecloths. They even boxed up all of our leftovers for us to take home. She really made sure she did everything she could to make our day perfect, and she definitely made everything so easy. We would recommend Gourmet Bay to anyone, hands down!

She had creative ideas and was always receptive to my concerns. Nicole and Chef Patrick were both accommodating in finding the menu that worked for me. My confidence in them proved deserved. Everyone involved did a wonderful job.

Gourmet Bay provides everything you could want in a caterer: affordable prices, great individuals to work with, and of course, incredible food. Kate Connor is an incredibly organized, professional, and friendly person to work with. She made planning the menu for our wedding an absolute breeze, despite several changes to the menu, many of which came late in the game. She was always willing to work with me and my husband, and went out of her way to ensure everything was exactly as we wanted.

Gourmet Bay is an exceptional catering service- their food and their employees both will make your wedding day a breeze (a delicious one at that!).

The food was unbelievably good and the service was excellent. I heard from several of my wedding guests about their thoughts on the wedding. The most common theme was how amazing the food was. I would have to agree that everything I ate was above par. Everyone was really happy with the lowcountry, southern style food choices. The only reason this is not a 5 out of 5 review is because I was told I would get any leftovers from the event and that was not the case. I saw some of my other vendors head out the door with small boxes of food leftovers, but we didn't get anything. I just wasn't happy to see other people leaving with food I paid for.

Gourmet Bay Catering responded with the following comments:

Thank you for taking the time to review us! We were honored to be apart of your wedding day.

I'm are sorry that you did not receive your bridal bag with all the food in it. I personally prepared all the boxes of food in the bag and gave it to your wedding planner to ensure that got onto the trolley that you were taking. I have spoken with your planner who let me know it did get onto trolley with you when you left. I'm not sure what could of happened to it but I did everything in my power to ensure that it was sent with you.

I also wanted to let you know that the only people who left with to-go boxes was our staff. Our chef prepares staff meals for all of our staff members to eat or take with them at the end of the night. Gourmet Bay takes care of the cost of these meals not our clients. Since our staff members work anywhere from 6-8 hours without a meal and sometimes no chance for a break we feel it is important to feed them at each event. They do take the meals home at the end of the night if they do not get a chance to eat.

Thank you again for allowing us to be apart of your big day!

Best Wishes,
Nicole Garrand
