Caterer recommendation in Charleston, SC
Hi, we are planning a sit down dinner for 50 and need to find a good caterer. We desire great seafood for this dinner. Is anyone familiar with Providence Catering of Charleston, Winship and/or Savory Market? I can't seem to find reviews on the web.
Duvall, Square Onion, Cru. These are the only catering companies I know I have had food from. They all did excellent jobs but I don't recall seafood (aside from crab cakes and boiled shrimp) being at any of the events. I'm sure that Cru could do a good job with seafood though.
I plan events so here's my take:
I've worked with:
Charleston Bay Gourmet - known for Lowcountry fare, they do an excellent job and are quite reasonable
Granville's - Planned a recent cocktail party with them, very well done
Good Food Catering - Used twice and have found them to be professional yet exorbitant, $6 a head for peach cobbler anyone? These are the only ones I've used for a seated dinner and they forgot to set bread plates.
Hamby's - Old standby, too many other good ones to choose from IMO
I haven't worked with:
Savory Market - Did a friend's wedding, excellent presentation
Cru Cafe - Heard wonderful things, restaurant is fantastic
I've never heard of Winship or Providence.
I used Charleston Bay Gourmet for my wedding rehearsal dinner a few years ago. We had BBQ, chicken, and sides, and they did a great job for a reasonable price. While interviewing caterers, we also tried Tidewater Catering/Black Jack BBQ. They were more expensive but had really good food. The folks at both places are really friendly. Though we were looking for a 'cue caterer, I believe both places also do seafood.
