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!

Honestly, there are not enough positive words to express how grateful I am for Gourmet By The Bay and all of their hard work. Our guests absolutely LOVED the food. Gourmet By The Bay did our "welcome dinner" as well as our wedding. With a buffet style wedding we had something for everyone, and it was done so tastefully everyone raved about it. Our guests are still talking about the food from our wedding and saying "it's the best food they've ever had at a wedding." The crab cakes were a huge hit and people still tell us they've never had such good crab cakes in their life. From the carving stations to the salads, the dessert table to the open bar, the food was incredible and the staff was professional, flexible and perfect! I would recommend them to ANYONE who wants to have their wedding talked about long after it's over! My family members still email me and send me messages on Facebook talking about it (our wedding was almost 4 months ago!) And anytime one of our wedding guests goes to another wedding, I always here about it after ("your food was better!")

Gourmet by the Bay was amazing!!! I can't express how grateful we are to have had gourmet by the bay cater our wedding! Guests are still raving about the food. We had crab cakes that were made in front of you, a delicious watermelon salad, sushi, sir loin, rock fish, mini ham and cheddar biscuits and other scrumptious foods for our guests. Sidney and Jim are professional and work with you to create your dream menu. They staff is dressed professional and made sure to have appetizers and plates set aside for us! The food is fresh and presented beautifully! I can't say enough about them! I was very stressed about other things at my wedding but I had no worries with our caterer! My only regret is that I didn't hire them to do my entire wedding! I highly recommend gourmet by the bay!

Food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly at our wedding. Unfortunately as soon as we told our contact with the company we wouldn't be using her as our wedding coordinator, it seemed as if we treated much differently. Although the company is in St Michaels, she couldn't recommend barely any other vendors in the area. (spa, salons) Basically I was told she only knew Annapolis. I feel that if I would have hired her as the coordinator the service would have been a bit better. That being said, the food was amazing. In the end, we were very pleased and the company itself is flexible and professional. Our contact person the day of the wedding was wonderful as well. They are worth the money you will spend.

Thanks to Tara and Sidney from Gourmet by the Bay, we were able to plan our wedding in the States from Sydney, Australia. They went out of their way to help with organizing the catering but also meeting with the venue on our behalf, and recommending a fantastic band. Not to mention that the food was the most amazing food anyone of my guests had ever had at a wedding. The cheese platter, the fresh oysters, all of it was scrumptious! Thanks so much for making our wedding so absolutely perfect!

We are coming to St. Michaels for another tasting when we are in the States again!
