I highly recommend Old Carolina for a wedding caterer! Leslianne was amazing to work with. She was always very quick at responding to emails, and was so helpful when we wanted to make changes. The servers were so polite and organized as well.

WOW! Old Carolina! The staff was so amazing! Kind, helpful, willing to jump in when needed and super professional. The food was great, the guests raved, and I was excited to have a little left over (that pulled pork is the best). Leslianne and her crew were easy to work with, answered quickly, accommodating, and very affordable. We used the plastic plates and forks that look like china and they worked perfect for us. They were great about setting up quickly and keeping the place picked up. I can't say enough about how wonderful they were to work with. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Old carolina provided catering services for our wedding. They arrived on time and set the buffet up quickly. They were very professional throughout the entire evening and provided cake cutting services free of charge. The food was delicious and we got a lot of compliments from our guests on the food being delicious and a nice change from typical wedding food. I would recommend them to friends and they are very affordable while serving high quality food!

We met with several caterers, and not only did Old Carolina come in at half the price (or less in some instances), they also offered high quality service and absolutely delicious food. Most wedding food is the same old, same old, but our guests RAVED about how much they loved it! Leslianne was also a dream to work with, was incredibly responsive to questions and we didn't have to worry for a second about things being taken care of. She also handled all of our rentals, which was a HUGE bonus!! We would highly recommend Old Carolina to anyone considering them.

Nothing bad can be said. The buffet service staff were friendly, very professional and smooth. They went above and beyond their regular job duties, bussing tables, breaking down service tables and bagging linens. They even offered to do things outside of their buffet duties. They boxed leftovers and carried to the car. They complied with the ever changing requests of the bride and groom, and did so with a smile. When they had finished cleaning up their equipment, they did not leave early, but continued to bus and help out until the end of their shift! The catering contact, Leslieanne, was wonderful. She coordinated all of the details, made changes graciously, and made sure everything was perfect. The food was FABULOUS! I will use them again if the occasion arises, without a doubt!

I wish I could give this more than a 5-star rating! Never in my life have I been to a wedding where the food and service was anywhere near delicious as the food was that OC had provided! I am still getting questions from guests about where we did the catering. I am not even exaggerating when I say that everyone who attended asked me about Old Carolina. "The food was amazing!" "I kept going back for more!" Carrie was the coordinator and she was extremely friendly and professional. The team that actually came was the nicest group of people that I had met. They met up with me throughout the night to see if there was anything that they could do or that I needed. When the night was coming to an end, they even split the food evenly so that both sets of parents could take it home and enjoy it. They exceeded our expectations and my husband and I will definitely be stopping up for some food. Hands down recommend to everyone!

I got married on a farm in a barn and let me tell you, Old Carolina BBQ fit the theme 100% All of the guests kept complimenting our food selection saying the BBQ was on point! We went with the full feast (roast chicken, pulled pork, ribs, baked beans, coleslaw, and salad). The buffet line moved quickly, the staff was friendly and helpful; they even helped my mom out by bringing up our home-made dessert plates from the kitchen and setting them up on the dessert table and refilled them throughout the night. They packaged up all of out leftovers in aluminum bins for us to take home. They were very reasonably priced. They also provide linens for the guest tables if needed. One of the best things about this company is that they are a restaurant as well, so if my husband and I ever want to be nostalgic and have our wedding food again, we can just visit one of the Akron locations and take a trip down memory lane!
