Jodi Moore and Kelly Burns have always dreamed of owning their own catering business. Growing up in the small town of Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, southern cooking was a way of life for the two girls. Their mother Tomma, a caterer herself, shared the joy of cooking with her daughters at a very early age. Using the lessons they learned in the kitchen from her, the two sisters have now turned their dream into what is today Sweetwater Cuisine.?

The name Sweetwater Cuisine originated from an old school located in the community where the girls were raised. Their great-great-great-great grandfather donated the land for the original Sweetwater School which was built in the late 1800s. The name Sweetwater was chosen because the school was located near a creek that was fed by many natural springs that actually did make the water sweet. The school quickly became the gathering place of the community. Socials and meetings were held there which, of course, meant great food!

Jodi and Kelly have incorporated this great love of food into Sweetwater’s various menus which include many family recipes that have been passed down for generations—such as their homemade rolls, meatballs, and gumbo. They hope you enjoy looking through some of their sample menus where you, too, can experience the taste of Sweetwater yourself.? Read less

Sweetwater is amazing! We love the food. It really is the best for weddings because it doesn't taste like bland wedding food. Their fried oysters were amazing. My husband doesn't usually like oysters but loves theirs. The meat was perfect, not over cooked from being on the buffet. Everyone kept raving on how good the food was. We were so happy to hear that because Sweetwater is our favorite restaurant in Hampton Roads. Even locals who have lived here all their lives haven't heard of them but loved their food. Asking when they were open because they wanted to go there and eat. That made us feel good and extremely happy we went with them. Kendall really put everything together nicely and the catering staff was excellent. They really took care of the bride and groom making sure we had water and food in the craziness of everything. Which we really appreciated.

We had a Sunday Morning Brunch wedding! Sweetwater not only proposed us a great menu, but the food was to die for! Our guests could not get enough of the food! We could not have asked for better catering. If you're looking for good southern food I would highly suggest going with Sweetwater.

We have met with Sweetwater Cuisine on several occasions to discuss our reception menu. Amie was so understanding and accomodating as we kept changing our menu vision. We finally decided on a menu, and are so happy with the yumminess of the food...we signed a contract as we were so comfortable with their food and services. Amie offered suggestions and will be helping us with our final decisions once we are closer to our special date.

Great vendor. I fell in love with them after the tasting! We did not do a sit down meal, but the buffet and butlered hors d'ouvres were wonderful. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They helped us customize a menu and rentals.

We spent many a days figuring out catering for our wedding and Sweetwater beat everyone in quality of service and quality of food for sure. They were extremely flexible with our pricing and payments which was the number one reason we picked this company but truly now that my wedding is over I wouldn't recommend any other caterer over this company. Their table side service was exceptional and more than a few of my wedding guests made great comments as soon as they heard I chose this food. People know the food Sweetwater produces and there's a reason they have such a good reputation.

Sweetwater Cuisine did a phenomenal job with the food for our wedding. Jodi and her team spent a lot of time with us in designing our menu and selecting our rentals, including linens and chairs. Her staff was very professional and friendly. The finished result was fantastic. The food was amazing and was presented beautifully.

Words are not enough to describe just how amazing the food prepared by Sweetwater was at my wedding reception. EVERYTHING was absolutely delicious, people are still telling my husband, me, and our families that it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding.

I knew from our first meeting with Jodi that there was no doubt Sweetwater would be our caterer. Jodi really took the time to talk to my husband and I about the food we liked and wanted to serve, so she made our menu very personalized that included several sriracha flavored offerings and a few vegan selections. We opted for butlered hors d’ourves and food stations. Jodi also procured all of the tables, chairs, and tablecloths that were used at the reception.

Our butlered hors d’ourves included crabcakes, shrimp & grits shots, zucchini pistachio & tomato bites, and steak & potato macadamia skewers. Our food stations ranged from bbq sliders, a mac ‘n’ cheese bar with various toppings, a biscuit bar (with various types of biscuits & local jams), chicken pot pie with sweet potato crust, seared scallops (that were made to order), lamb lolli-pops, sriracha glazed meatballs, and cauliflower steaks. For dessert, Jodi was able to source macarons, miniature pies (pumpkin, pecan, and mixed berry cobbler), cake pops, and bonbons with edible glitter! And if that wasn’t enough, Jodi prepared warm chocolate chip cookies served atop shot glasses of milk and mini hot-dogs for late night snacks. We were able to try several of the dishes we selected prior to the wedding, and there was no doubt we had made the right choice.

Jodi and her team were absolute professionals, I didn’t have to worry about a thing during the reception. Jodi was easy to work with, took the time to listen to what we wanted, and made sure we got to eat at our own reception by preparing plates to eat in a private room. Sweetwater did an outstanding job helping to make our reception a memorable one!

Sweetwater catered my wedding at Moca in Virginia Beach this past weekend and everything was amazing! The staff was hands down the most attentive and professional people I could have ever asked for! From the beginning Jodi was amazing, she was quick to respond to questions, met with us and helped us with our menu! The tasting was wonderful, it really helps to see what other people are thinking about and its nice to taste other options that are available! Our wedding day went off without any issues! Maria and her team were really easy to work with! Annie kept our plates full and our drinks cold the entire night, the bartenders were great and really every single staff member was so polite and extremely helpful! The FOOD was amazing! We had guests go up multiple times to our stations! The pecan chicken and gourmet mash potatoes were the biggest talk of the night! Seriously delicious!!! Couldn't have asked for anything better! If you LOVE southern style food like we do, I would highly recommend Sweetwater!

Sweetwater was fantastic! The food was without a doubt delicious, the service was impeccable, and their personal touches were uniquely creative and classic. Maria helped with our wedding and she took such great care of us. She is passionate about her company and makes a point to get all the details just right for you and your event. She even took the time to play dress up with a bridesmaid and I- we dressed up table settings and linens a dozen times in one afternoon so that I could see the different chair + linnen + china combinations. Maria did this at no additional cost... that spoke very highly of the level of dedication and customer care that they provide.
On the day of our wedding... there was a server who periodically checked to see that my husband and I had enough to eat and if we needed anything. Sweetwater sent us home with a tray of food and a few slices of cake and managed to get it to our limo so we didn't have to worry about a thing. Sweetwater takes great care of their clients and I would strongly recommend their services for events of any size.
