Relysh catering was absolutely fantastic at my wedding! We really felt Meredith and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The food was great, guests were commenting on how good everything was all night long. It was also gorgeously displayed! I feel like Relysh Catering took our wedding style and ran with it. Even the little cake they made for us to cut really was perfect. Highly recommended!!!

Jodi from Relysh is amazing at what she does. Her food is not only innovative and creative but also very yummy! My husband keeps joking about setting a reservation with Jodi to go back and have the food again. Jodi was so easy to work with and our initial food tasting was so fun! We walked away fat and very happy! We had to bring everything to the wedding and Jodi was very helpful with helping us plan our bar and amounts of drinks and alcohol to have at the wedding. We also threw another obstacle in with wanting grapefruit and orange crushes. Jodi supplied us enough that our thirsty friends did not run out. Not only was the relysh team professional and friendly, but extremely helpful! When we needed help setting up, they were there with out hesitation to lend a helping hand. Another GREAT aspect of Jodi was she knew that the busy bride and groom may not have had a chance to really enjoy all the food... She wrapped up two extra meals for us and lots of the yummy appetizers for us to enjoy later (which we did!) She is so sweet and her food is amazing! HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend and looking for an excise to throw a party so I can have her cater it!

several people were quite impressed with your server Newton. People are still raving about the steak and the appetizers. My family would love to have you do a repeat on them. We will just have to schedule that sometime. None of us made it to the latke bar. Jodi you went over and above the call of duty. Finding us such a magnificent venue and playing such an important role in making this one event to remember. The accolades continue to pour in. I would just like to redo the entire day as it was so much fun. Thank you

I was so blessed to have had Jodi Hair as my caterer! I still have food dreams of her cooking and my mouth waters every time I think about her mini crab cakes on fried lemon appetizers. I haven't been the same since. Jodi was great to work with and she also worked very well with my floral/event designer Sarah Campbell of Intrigue Design and Decor. She is an extremely creative caterer. She crafted an excellent Southern Foods-influenced menu and incorporated our books and music theme into the design of the foods and the display as well. She did all of this in an affordable price range. She even made my cake! The only thing I was a little sad about on my wedding day was not being able to eat as many appetizers as I wanted to because 1) I had to take pictures and looking like a chipmunk is not a good look and 2) my dress was really tight. But her manager made sure that he set aside a sample of most of the food for a delicious take-out dinner for later that night. All I can say is that I will be trying to recreate all of her dishes in my own kitchen because they were all so delicious and far surpassed typical wedding food.

Although nothing I can say will come close to the true measure of gratitude my wife and I have for Relysh - Jodi, Michael and everyone on staff completely made our wedding day! We still have not stopped getting RAVE REVIEWS from all of our family and friends about the food, drink, tent, tables, and everything else at the wedding....and we honestly could not have had the perfect day we did without them!!!

I LOVE Jodi and her team at Relysh. We had a "destination wedding" to Annapolis, coming in from Minnesota. After looking at 30+ different locations and meeting many caterers we chose Jodi at Relysh. In fact, she was so much more than a caterer. She's very detail oriented. She listened, and took the bride and groom's suggestions, and ran with them, making my job so much more enjoyable. All our guests raved about the great service and fabulous food. She had fabulous fresh and scrumptious food. We had the rockfish and filet mignon as the main course then she planned the rest of the menu with the bride and groom's home states and heritage in mind. Jodi went way beyond just the food. She had ideas and connections around Annapolis. She'd contact me throughout the wedding planning with suggestions. She was my right hand person. When Love Point (the wedding venue on the Bay)called to say they'd lost their license two days before my daughter's wedding, Jodi had my back and a plan in place. She and her staff went way beyond the call of duty. When I plan my next daughter's wedding, Jodi is definitely my first call.

The food is AMAZING. Jodi is so friendly and talented and Michael is very organized and helpful, they make a great team!!! Our guests couldn't say enough how much they loved the food, how awesome it wasn't "wedding food" but delicous and unique! I am so happy with everything and only wish I had had time to EAT MORE! If you are even considering some other catering company instead of Relysh you are making a huge mistake!!! YUMMMMMM.

I worked with Relysh on my wedding on September 21st at their exclusive venue, Shore House Gardens. I was working with Meredith since January trying to secure our catering contract. It would sometimes be weeks before she would respond. In August I had enough and contacted Jodi, Jodi arranged to set up an appointment with myself and my father. At that point we finally met with someone from the venue, Jodi's husband, Brett Hair. During this meeting we were informed Meredith was no longer working with Relysh or Shore House Gardens and we spent several hours going over every detail for the wedding that had been communicated since January. We also found out several items we had been told were not true. Relysh and Shore House did make an attempt to correct those pieces and we left with a better feeling.
There were many issues with the venue but since they do not have a wedding wire I will only discuss the issues I had with Relysh. The food was very good and the menu was very creative. That was what I loved about Relysh and why I picked them. They did do a good job in that regard. The items I were not happy with food wise were that my food was cold, and two of our tables did not get one of the entrees. When my guests asked about the steak the wait staff told them they ran out. My other problem was with the service staff. We were promised someone to take care of us all night but by the time dinner rolled around they were missing. My husband sat through the speeches without a drink. Then I had to ask them to clear our salad plates as they were sitting on the table as the entrees arrived.
Jodi is very friendly and nice to work with but it is clear that she is very busy and maybe a bit overwhelmed. Her response time is slow or sometimes nonexistent. I did follow up after the wedding with these concerns but never heard back. I made an attempt to deal directly with them but it is clear that once they have the money and the event is over they do not care.

I have never posted a negative review of anyone's service before but our experience with Jodi Hair at Relysh has been horrible. We hired her for our son's rehearsal dinner 7/13/12. I supplied my head count in advance, selected the food and expected a lovely evening. Instead, they we so late setting up that I had to ask the bride and groom not to come to the party until I called them. She was understaffed and my family members had to spend their time setting the tables. At 6:20 the tables were still not ready for a 6:30 party. It went from bad to worse. Some of the guests did not get one of the entrees, there was absolutely no water for anyone or any refill of iced tea, wine, or any liquid all night. There were no forks for dessert. The worst thing is that she sat with me that night practically in tears apologizing and saying there would be some adjustment. However, as soon as I was out the door she cashed the check, even though she gave me her word she would not. She won't answer emails or phone calls. I used a friend's phone with an out-of-state number and she answered right away but then said she would have to call me right back. She did not.
This was a huge disappointment. Save yourselves the heartache and hire someone else. I wish I had.

Relysh Catering responded with the following comments:

A couple of points that were missed in this review:
1) We resolved this issue within a week after the event with a refund that the Customer agreed to.
2) Cocktail Hour started at 6:30pm (not dinner) in a different room. It's normal to fill waters, finalize table setup and finishing touches while everyone else is in the other room so that the tables look fresh.
3) Cocktail Hour was then extended by 40 minutes at her request. Once everyone arrived for dinner, we were told there would be 15 minutes of introductions during which time she wanted no staff or distractions. This turned into 55 minutes.
4) At this venue there is NO option for extending an event's timeframe so the extra long Cocktail "Hour" and another hour delay for dinner meant we were extremely rushed to complete the dinner service.
5) The forks for dessert were delivered to the tables with the desserts.
In general, Relysh strives for exceptional catering services. Unfortunately this customer had uncommunicated expectations between us and the venue which could not be realistically fulfilled.
