Steve and Susie did a fabulous job with our day after wedding brunch. They exceeded our expectation. Steve had perfect menu ideas. Steve, Susie and Laura were pleasant, professional, personable and certainly impressed our guests. The setting Steve suggested at The Point Golf Club was beautiful and cozy for our casual celebration. Steve suggested that to blend families we needed to blend recipes. He prepared the grandmother of the bride's macaroni salad and the great grandmother of the groom's cheesecake. His gesture personalized the celebration and was a conversation starter. It was a pleasure to work with you....thank-you for the perfect event!

The folks at the Good Life catered our sons rehearsal dinner this past week and did a great job! Susie & Steve were always there to help and suggest as we started our planning right through the end of the event. Having the venue to ourselves for the evening made the night special, it was our private party.
Chef Christain prepared a great meal for the evening which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Kudos to all the staff for making our guest feel welcome.
Check out the Good Life for a truly special catering experience .

I cannot say enough good things about Steve and Susie, and staff at The Good Life Gourmet. Not only is the food to die for, the customer service sets the bar. I met Steve at the OBX wedding expo in April 2013 and he was the only caterer who actually took the time to speek to me and my mom. He impressed me so much that I had to hire him before someone else. And I am so happy I did. He completely customized my wedding menu to my 1920's Atlantic City carnival theme. The food stations were absolutely amazing, and he was on site to fry up pork roll sandwiches to order. Everything was so unique and my guests raved about the food and the staff. And the best part- I knew I could trust Steve not to take advantage of my themed menu. His pricing was fair and reasonable, and he never pressured me to keep something on the menu. He treats his brides like his daughter, and I never once doubted his judgement. My wedding was truly amazing because of The Good Life Gourmet. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Our Good Life Gourmet, Steve Mace was an absolute pleasure to work with during the 7 months prior to our daughter's wedding. We spoke often and he was willing to meet with us whenever we felt the need. As Steve loves what he does, he is always thinking of ways to make an event more unique and special. His presence was enjoyed by our guests as much as his food. As ours was a casual 6 hour buffet reception for 180, Steve prepared enough at each food station for guests to return on multiple trips. Many even stopped for one last fill up before departing at midnight. He arrived early, stayed till the end and packed up the leftovers for the Bride and Groom's after party. Steve Mace's service is seamless and smooth because his planning considers every eventuality. In contracting the Good Life Gourmet, you really do get "the man in charge". You also get an unforgettable array of food which he is proud to serve.

Kathleen’s wedding last weekend was a huge success because of The Good Life Gourmet, you, and your wonderful staff!

We received so many compliments on the food that you and your staff prepared and served. The fruit and cheese buffet was grand beyond my expectations. I think people enjoy trying new foods! We heard overwhelming raves for the filet, “you could cut it with a fork”; the sweet potatoes, “I went back for seconds”; and the chicken, “amazing flavor.”

Our guests were surprised that Steve came to their tables and checked on them. We really appreciated that personal touch. Once the reception started, we were able to relax because the Good Life was in charge.

There are a lot of caterers that we could have chosen for Kathleen’s day, but from the day we walked into the Good Life and tasted your food, we knew that the Good Life was different from the other OBX caterers!

Steve and Susie are amazing! The food was perfect they catered a seafood boil for the rehearsal dinner and it was fabulous. They also catered the wedding reception with a boneless ribeye carving station and shrimp and scallop sautéed station and it was very good. They were such a pleasure to work with and made me feel a lot better about everything. I could go on all night I would have them cater an event again for me anytime!!!!
Thanks

My husband and I chose The Good Life Gourmet to cater our wedding and we could not have been happier with the service we received! Steve was absolutely wonderful from day one and helped point me in the right directions in regards to several wedding details and how to make the process run smoothly. With his guidance we had a beautiful reception with food that was absolutely to die for. Our guests could not get over how wonderful the food was and still tell us to this day it was the best food they ever had. Thank you Steve and team!!!!!

Used Steve and Susan for brunch wedding day, rolls for rehearsal, and to cater my wedding. They had done a friend of mine's 5 years prior and that was the only wedding food I can remember as being fabulous (besides my own of course). So glad I booked them. We even ate breakfast there 4 times the week of- we were obsessed!! Steve has such a type A personality, which is something you want in your caterer. He is on time, knows what he wants and demands perfection. His prices are reasonable, he works within your budget and helps you make choices to fit your venue. He is so responsive to everything, he does not miss a beat. Best of all his bartenders are so fun and entertaining! Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!

Steve at the Good Life Gourmet was so great to work with! He helped us create the perfect menu for out backyard barbecue and gave countless tips and advice to make the process and planning as painless as possible. His staff were friendly and helpful the day of the wedding and took care of all the details without worrying the bride, groom, or the guests. Did I mention the food was well presented and delicious! Hushpuppies fried on the spot-YUM! Thanks for the NC BBQ reception:)
