Darlene and the staff at Hunt Valley Catering were absolutely amazing from beginning to end! This was the 4th caterer we had met with and as soon as we walked in and met Darlene, we knew this place was different from the rest. They were unbelievably accommodating, and let us try literally everything their menu had to offer with zero pressure at all. Not to mention the food was DELICIOUS and their prices were very competitive and worth every penny. The day of the wedding went so smoothly and the food again, was amazing, even with producing it for 190 people! People cannot stop talking about how this was the best wedding food they've ever had, and I would have to agree with them all. We HIGHLY recommend Darlene and Hunt Valley Catering, they will by far, exceed all of your expectations. We love you Hunt Valley!! Thanks for making one of the most important parts of our wedding day, perfect!

This company made the wedding day a breeze for me. The taste testing was over the top, too much to even think about eating at one sitting. They were flexible with changes we wanted to make to the menu, in order to stay within the price range we were comfortable with. The food was predictable and what you would expect, no suprises, and DELICIOUS! The day of ran so smoothly, and I knew I had nothing to worry about, that they would be there and take care of everything, and they did. The most helpful part of all was their responsiveness. Being a bride is stressful, especially when waiting for answers and if I did not get an answer the same day, I would at least get a response that my email was received, and when they would be able to get an answer for me. I contacted several caterers, and what sold me on them was the fact that they reached right out to me right when I contacted them. 100% recommend!

Hunt Valley Catering really was the reason our wedding was so amazing. From our tasting to the last second of our reception they were incredible! Darlene and her team handled everything- our linens, food, bar, even the chairs for our ceremony. The food was phenomenal- I've had more than one guest tell me it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. I worried about absolutely nothing- they handled it all for me!! And the value- by far the best of anyone we looked at! We looked long and hard for our caterer and found Hunt Valley Catering and now we will never use anyone but them for an event!

This review is for Pre-Wedding service. James and Darlene are great! The tasting session we had was phenomenal, and we chose them pretty much immediately. We didn't even check other caterers out. The customer service is outstanding. I can't wait for my event and to see the enjoyment on my guests' faces when they are eating!

Wow, what an amazing catering company! Here are a few reasons why they were awesome *before* our wedding: Darlene responded to my emails within hours (once, she even responded while she was on vacation!), our taste testing was beyond incredible (my fiance and I were given platters upon platters of amazing appetizers, a huge entree including filet mignon and crab cake, and a huge plate filled with different flavored cake slices to take home), their pricing was very affordable for our budget, their pricing didn't have an *hidden* fees, the menus were extremely easy to look through and to adjust to our own tastes, they had an option to include a full, open bar (and it was *very* worth it!!), they took care of the wedding cake, I had numerous questions leading up to the big day and Darlene responded to them all, and they provided a walk through at my venue a few weeks before so that I knew exactly how the tables would be placed and set up (Lawrence was at this walk through and also at my wedding, and he was so nice and professional during both). A few reasons why they were spectacular *during* my wedding day: I didn't have to worry about a single thing concerning the set up of my venue, they laid out everything exactly as I had asked, they had a plate of appetizers prepared just for my husband and me when we were getting our photos taken (just so that we didn't miss out on the good cocktail hour food!), the catering staff were all incredibly nice, I had numerous compliments from my guests about the food (they especially liked the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer, the gorgonzola and fig purse appetizer, and the crab cake entree), I had numerous guests tell me that the bartender was amazingly generous, and they cleaned the entire venue up within an hour after our guests left. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better or more pleasurable catering experience!

Hunt Valley Catering was amazing from start to finish! My husband and I were on a tight budget for our (large) wedding, and when we saw the super competitive prices at Hunt Valley, we thought there must be a catch. Well, every single thing we tried was great. Some things we liked better than others, but everything was high quality. My husband and I immediately liked Darlene, and felt so at ease that even though this was our very first tasting, we chose Hunt Valley on the spot. We chose a stations menu that included several appetizers (cheese/fruit display, vegetable crudite, shrimp cocktail, spinach and feta in phyllo, bacon wrapped scallops and pot stickers), stations including marinated London broil, chicken Chesapeake and a variety of pastas, and an assortment of desserts. We were able to order our cake from our favorite local restaurant, and we brought in our own alcohol, but we did include 3 bartenders and bar set-ups from Hunt Valley. Everyone RAVED about the food and service. The staff that worked our wedding was professional and friendly. They brought my husband and I plates of food - TWICE - to ensure that we had something to eat and that our food was hot. They were helpful throughout the night and really went above and beyond to make our wedding extra special. Darlene and her team are competent, and easy to work with. I highly recommend Hunt Valley Catering, and would personally use them again for a special event. Hunt Valley Catering has excellent food at ridiculously competitive prices, and tops it all off with outstanding service. Thanks you Hunt Valley for making our wedding a night we will never forget!

If you want THE BEST food, book Hunt Valley Catering! Hunt Valley was the first caterer we visited, and honestly, we didn't need to see any others after that. The FREE tasting they provided really went above and beyond, allowing us to try NUMEROUS appetizers as well as the entrée that we wanted. When they told us the price, we really thought, "There has to be some catch! This is too good to be true!" But, fortunately, it was not too good to be true. Hunt Valley Catering really worked with us to get us the PERFECT food setup, and a month later our guests are still raving that it was by far the best wedding food they've had!

There were a couple minor mishaps, including a miscommunication about the cost to upgrade the cake, and one of the hors d'oeuvres ran out during the event. However, this was overshadowed by the fact that the chef threw in two free hors d'oeuvres for our guests "just because"! When I sent an email to Darlene informing her about a couple of the minor issues we encountered, she blew us away by offering to provide my family with FOUR full meals (entrée, veggie, starch, AND dessert) as well as 50 of the hors d'oeuvres that had run out. Needless to say, they handled the problem better than we ever could have hoped.

Book Hunt Valley Catering. You will NOT regret it.
