We recently used Simply The Best for our wedding and they were fantastic! The food was awesome and they were very, very professional and easy to work with. The only issues we had was that our florist provided candles for the tables and STB was supposed to light them - when we walked into our reception none of the candles were lit. Also, we had breakfast-themed reception food and were supposed to serve mimosas. The mimosas were never made and champagne was served instead, which was a bummer because we bought 4 gallons of orange juice that was left sitting in the fridge the next day. This would have been a nice aspect to our breakfast theme that was forgotten about.

The people we worked with were very professional and easy to work with. In the beginning they were busy with a larger wedding so we had to wait for estimates, etc. However, once the other wedding was finished we had no problem with them regarding promptness. I thought there prices were high; but The Terry House would only allow them to cater. Most of their food was very good; some of the items were just okay and not eaten as a result. The servers were polite and worked hard.

Simply the Best Catering did an amazing job for my wedding day. The food was perfect, exactly what I wanted, tasted amazing, and was still hot by the time it was time to eat! They helped so much with rentals, setting up a menu that suited us best. They came to set up everything on time and always responded to my questions promptly. I am so happy that we used this company. I have gotten so many compliments on the food, and was so pleased everyone enjoyed it all. The servers were great, always made sure guests and esp the bride and groom had what they wanted, and were happy. You can't go wrong with this company.

Every wedding guest commented on how wonderful the food was, the large amount of food there, and how great everything looked. Simply the Best was so great to work with. They worked to create a menu that worked for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. The food was amazing! Being the bride and groom, there isn't a lot of time to eat, so one of the best moments of the night was discovering the take-home bag they make specially for the bride and groom. We got to eat everything! My family is a family that loves to eat and our events are remembered based on how good the food was at the paticular event. Let me just say that our wedding was the best event ever because everyone loved the food. I will always recommend SBC because they are quality, yummy food for a great price!

We were more than pleased with Simply the Best! We had quite a large guest list, and they worked with us to help us put together just the right menu to fit our budget. They were great to work with. Not only were they great to work with, but the food was amazing! Our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the food - especially the spinach dip!

Because we had our wedding at the Terry House, we were required to use Simply the Best for our catering service. We were able to come up with a menu that fit our budget fairly well. They also helped us choose the layout and rental chairs, tables, and table cloths. It set just the tone we had hoped for. The staff was great, as was the food. They did a very nice job.

The food was wonderful, the presentation was beautiful... we had barbeque and it still looked elegant. They did everything and even fixed the bride and groom a plate to take (since you don't really get to eat at the reception). I do think they overcalculated the ammount of food for people. We had so many leftovers!
