GBTB was off the charts! From the moment we met Sidney, she was nothing but professional, helpful, and honest with us about all our questions- and I had a lot of questions:) She always emailed me back right away- her communication was flawless. The food at our wedding was spectacular! We opted to do heavy appetizers (you must order the corn and crab fritters, a total hit!), skipped the salad course, and did late night bites. This was Sidney's suggestion and we are so glad we took it as this schedule led to lots of dancing! Everyone raved about the food and Sidney and her staff were kind enough to box up the dinners of guests who could not make it at the last minute. The staff was friendly, professional, and attentive. I would highly recommend GBTB- they are well worth the price.

Don't! These flaky people make great food, but grossly underestimated the food needed for 80 people. The bride and groom had appetizers, but I (mother of the bride), my husband, who paid for the whole damned thing, my daughter's father and his wife, got NO appetizers, even though I had SPECIFICALLY requested that they be put aside for us because we were going to be in photo sessions. The tent leaked. We paid for an enormous amount of food and when we got to the table I had one oyster and a cracker. COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. $26,000 for that. NO, I WILL NOT TAKE THIS REVIEW DOWN.

Highly Recommend!! We used Gourmet by the Bay for our entire wedding weekend...rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and post wedding brunch. From our first meeting with GBTB, to the execution of our three events, Sidney and Melissa, were wonderful to work with. Their attention to detail, friendliness and not to mention the food was OUTSTANDING!! Our wedding weekend was earlier this May and our guests are still raving about the food. Many thanks to the team at GBTB for making our wedding weekend such a memorable event.

GBTB is the exceptional in all they do! I have been to enough weddings where I couldn't tell you what I even ate... let alone wished I'd eaten more. All of our guests (and my husband and I) were going back for seconds and thirds. We chose stations, and every single station was amazing! It sounds like the tossed salad station was the favorite among our guests, but I wish I could have the grilled lamb every day of the week! The salmon was cooked to perfection (which is so difficult to do at home, let alone in a cook tent in the middle of a garden!).

And then there was Melissa and her attention to detail, her coordination with Eastern Shore Tents and Events, and her fantastic staff! Everything was perfect, and if we lived in Maryland, we would use them again and again! Thank you GBTB!

Sidney and the Gourmet by the Bay Team were absolutely INCREDIBLE. Sidney is so much more than just a caterer, she helped with our entire event design and coordination. She also connected us with some incredible vendors (see other reviews, including Cristina Calvert Signature) She came highly recommended from a number of acquaintances and lived up to and well beyond our expectations. Our wedding day was absolutely seamless from start to finish and every detail was attended to by the GBTB team. GBTB also helped with all rentals, including the gorgeous sail cloth tent, beer boat bar, table and chair rentals, linens, etc. Sidney was also able to provide the wedding of our dreams within our anticipated budget and she did a great job helping us focus on the important things. Also, have I mentioned to food?!?! It was DELICIOUS. The shrimp and grits and mushroom risotto were out of this world and we just LOVED the zucchini fritters, lamb burgers and flatbreads, tuna tartare and more!! I can't thank Sidney and the GBTB team enough for delivery an incredible dream wedding we will never, ever forget.

Gourmet by the Bay was the caterer that we used for our son's rehearsal dinner held at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Melissa was our contact person with menu and details. She worked within our budget and provided a menu that used local ingredients ..and was delicious! Many of our guests commented on the service and excellent flavor of all the foods offered. We had the cocktail hour on the deck with passed hors d'oeuvres, followed by a buffet dinner inside. Everything was outstanding. Wanda...was our "point person" who kept things flowing and made it nice for us to enjoy the lovely night with our guests.

We felt like we fell into an old friend. The chef had worked at my late husband's favorite restaurant on Nantucket. We knew going into the contract that it would be good. What we didn't expect was that it would be over the top fantastic! This was one of the two truly delightful surprises from the vendors we used. The food was spectacular, the service attentive, the timing to perfection! (The comp meals for other vendors were also very good I am told. ) The food arrived HOT and perfectly cooked. The vegetarian option was a mushroom/asparagus risotto that was so good I passed up a filet. The wine pairings were also excellent suggestions. Also Sidney did all the rentals, to perfection I might add. All in all, Sidney Trond (proprietor) outdid herself and she and her husband (the Chef extraordinaire) deserve a five star rating. Hidden gem on the Eastern Shore!
