We are delighted to hear of your interest in The Catering Company of Williamsburg. We are a full service caterer, and also have a full VA ABC License. The advantage to using The Catering Company is that we customize all of our menus to the client's tastes and the event's theme. However, because all of our menus are individualized, we do not have any package pricing to provide for you. Although, we do have a sample menu packet we will send to you. You can take a look at some of our favorite receptions we have catered, and gather some ideas for your own menu. After you've had a chance to do this, give us a call and we will set an appointment for you to talk with our Event Coordinator, Laura Reeves. She will discuss pricing, menu selections, and rentals with you. If you are unable to come in to our office for a meeting, we can certainly set up a phone appointment. Read less

To start I was so excited I had found a vendor who I didn't have to stress about! I went to several events they held, where I spoke with Laura several times about the details I wanted for my day! We spoke about having a sauce bar and plain barbeque, so my guests could choose what they wanted! The fact that they were able to do this for me was one of the main reasons we signed the contract! I met with Laura several times to go over the menu and all the details we wanted. Our last meeting was about six weeks before the event, where we asked to receive a revised copy of the contract. We emailed her several times, received no response and only received the contract 3 days before the wedding, which was incorrect. We agreed to pay extra for spinach dip, which didn't show up to the cocktail hour. The meat already had sauce and had an awful plain display (not what she showed us). Her bartenders didn't even come with a wine key and served my champagne toast during the cocktail hour. They mutilated my cake, which the claimed was "dry or frozen", though my aunt had made it the day before and had been decorating it the day of... out of the refrigerator obviously. We kindly asked for several meetings to discuss the actions and faults of the day and she has ignored us and sent a measly $500 reimbursement which barely covers the cost of the dip that never even showed up. Mind you our vendor has since removed them as a preferred vendor because this was not the first time they dropped the ball at an event at his venue alone. DO NOT USE THIS VENDOR.

The Catering Company catered our wedding on 6/21/2014 in Williamsburg, VA. We had about ~170 people. Laura was extremely helpful in the planning process as we debated menu and set-up options. I was also very pleased with their linen and decor selection. They did a great job in setting up the food in an aesthetically appealing way. My one complaint and point of direction if you use them is to give very explicit instruction on liquor service. We had a specialty bourbon bar and I'd assumed the staff would know which bourbon to serve with mixed drinks (the more basic bourbon in bigger size bottles) and which bourbon to reserve for the bar (the single barrel, lower quantity items) however the bartenders used our fancy bourbon bar, double-oaked, expensive bourbon in mixed drinks even when guests did not specifically ask for it. I'm not sure if this is because they'd temporarily lost the cheaper bourbon or just didn't know better. We ended up having multiple unopened bottles of the cheaper bourbon that was supposed to be used in mixed drinks. I wish I'd given explicit bottle by bottle directions on which bourbon was for the regular bar service and which bourbon was for the bourbon bar and not made assumptions that staff would know the difference. Overall though, we were happy with their services.

As soon as I became engaged and told my co-workers we were to wed in Williamsburg, VA, my co-worker said (in a matter of words) "you HAVE to hire the Catering Company, and request their potato bar!" So - I did! :) Laura ultimately told us - tell you what you want...and we'll make it happen! And she did! The food was unreal. The staff was awesome. Laura was one of the friendliest vendors I had the pleasure to work with during my planning process!

I asked Laura for a "Scotch and Cigar" bar, and it was - perfect. Our guests had a blast! If you have a ceiling on your liquor, I would suggest you ask the bartender to pour average/"two finger" size shots/drinks, as our bartender poured "four finger" size drinks. Otherwise - the food was amazing and I am so so so thankful to Laura for her services!

Laura Reeves from The Catering Company and The Williamsburg Manor both played a large role in our wonderful wedding this past fall. Laura was easy to communicate with and full of great ideas. Her years of experience have paid off. We attended several open house events held by The Catering Company before deciding on our final menu and linen selections. I started out wanting a very tiffany blue wedding and ended up with a sage green themed event. I guess I could not make up my mind. But Laura listened and let me be flexible. On our wedding day her staff was happy to please us as well. Paula and here crew moved quickly to get things setup and allowed us to make changes that day without letting my mom know what a pain we where probably being. We loved the flexibility and understanding.

Our food was awesome. The presentation was beautiful and tasted even better. It was definility prepared with love.

One suggestion I would have is to communicate changes by email so you both have a record to refer to. And i made a lot of changes.

Alcohol Service: I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THE CATERING COMPANY IF YOU HAVE ANY EXPECTATIONS FOR YOUR ALCOHOL SERVICE. While Laura was helpful in assisting us with a signature cocktail, we provided all of the alcohol well in advance ... and by the time the wedding came around, all of our most expensive liquor was gone. We lost a bottle of Glenfiddich, Crown Royal, and Jameson. SO unprofessional, because obviously the OTHER liquor had showed up (standards like Jack Daniels, Captain Morgan, Smirnoff, and these were delivered in the same box as the other liquors) and it seems that whoever works there decided they wanted to take our good quality alcohol. Having the liquor that we paid for and expected to be there shouldn't have been an issue.

A friend of ours that used The Catering Company also had the issue of them completely forgetting to bring her alcohol to the reception, but I was hoping it had just been a fluke. TO BE FAIR, Laura refunded us for the alcohol that went missing, but again, if we didn't want that alcohol at the wedding or didn't care what we had or didn't have, we wouldn't have opted to provide it ourselves.

Food Quality: The food was delicious, well-presented, and overall I had no issues with it. The guests seemed to enjoy the food, and Laura was very helpful in helping us make our choices.

The food was awesome! We went with a southern comfort food theme and had fried green tomatoes, chorizo and cheese grits, roasted pork, friend chicken, and some other stuff. Like I said the food was amazing and I didn't hear any complaints from our guests whatsoever. They also agreed to assist us with table decorations at no charge. I will say they aren't the cheapest but did a fabulous job.

Laura, Craig, Annita, Bobby & Connie - Thank you for making our wedding day so special. Your attention to detail and the fantastic food presentations only helped to make the day a moment in time we will not easily forget. My family and our guests where equally impressed. From the time we first meet over a year ago until our wedding day and beyond your team has been available and helpful. We enjoyed attending your open house events, touring your warehouse and knowing that we had a professional team backing our decisions. Thank you.

The Catering Company did an excellent job. We used them for tables, chairs, linens, lighting and the food. We purchased our own liquor/beer and their bartenders served. All service was top notch. The food was presented very artistically and tasted wonderful. We had contracted with The Yorktown Pub to come up during the cocktail hour and shuck and serve raw oysters...(recommend this as well...very reasonable) and had The Catering Company serve roasted oysters and mini crabcakes in addition to the fruit/cheese/veggie spread....people were really impressed. It made the event. The Catering Company's decorations/serving setup for the oysters was impressive. The entrees were pulled pork in a delicious sauce and marinated chicken breasts...sides were garden salad, slaw, mashed potato bar, pasta salad and macaroni and cheese. I was worried originally that the food would not seem fancy enough, but the wedding came off as very high end. We had the cocktail hour on the raised deck and inside the Carriage House...the wedding ceremony was on the beach directly behind the museum...the caterers set up the chairs for us at no charge. We did have some of the young gentlemen at the wedding take the chairs up from the beach to the tables...this took 2 mins and was not a problem. We used Bliss Bakery from VA Beach for the wedding cake and pecan pies. The Catering Company cut and served both as well for no additional charge. We had a champagne toast served by the caterers as well. We used DJ on the Side for our dj...everything came together perfectly. Made for a wedding to be proud of.

The Catering Company is awesome!!! I booked them almost a year ago, since they catered my friend's wedding. I wanted to make sure that I had them for my wedding. The food was delicious!!! The beef tenderloin was great, the shrimp and grits were to die for. We even had a signature cocktail with fresh grapefruit juice that everyone loved. Ask Laura what's in it. Yum! They provided all the linens and props for their buffet tables which added a lot to the look of the venue. I would highly recommend!
