Testimonials

They catered a retirement party for us and they were wonderful. A lot of people who came to our party used them for their own parties. The food was good, the service was great. There were two people who took care of all the stuff and refilled everything. They kept the food and drinks flowing and picked up cups. They did a great job. I would use them again.

All the best,

Dear Bev,
Thank you so much to all who helped us from Shirley’s Catering with our reception on the 18th. I had many compliments on the food. It was delicious! The staff was very professional and courteous too. I appreciate your help Bev, all along the way as we discussed the venue and menu options and assessed what our needs would be. Our event ended up being a lot smaller than we originally intended, but for those who were able to come, it was a very enjoyable evening. I will definitely recommend Shirley’s Catering to my friends in the future.

All the best,

Yolanda did the most incredible job setting up, helping with the service and cleaning up. She is truly an amazing person.

Hi Shirley,
Neil and I just want to thank you again for everything you and the company did for us. We had a fantastic wedding and we owe a lot of that to you! Everyone was so nice and so helpful and the food was AMAZING. We couldn’t be more grateful that you were a part of it! Thank you so, so much!
All the best,

Caitlin and Neil

Shirley-
How do I begin to thank you? The food was incredible delicious – so much so that after the second wave of eating by the family at 6pm, there was nothing left but a bit of the green salad. The biggest hit of the day was the potato salad – like you said – and the meatballs.Tamiko, Erin and Lex did an excellent job keeping the food and bar replenished, the dirty plates gathered, the house cleaned and at the end, everything put away until later eating.

Again, I so appreciate your willingness to step in and cater my father’s funeral reception for us at the last minute and providing me with the peace that my family and friends were well fed. You were a blessing to work with throughout the entire process.

I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Best,

Dawn

Hi Shirley,
I have been meaning to send you a note since Saturday, but time seems to have gotten away from me. It was a MOST lovely evening and greatly enjoyed by all. I must say, I was very pleased with everything. The food was delicious and the wine pairing was spot-on! I was very pleased that Robin really listened to what I liked and made great choices for the event. Thank you very much for a fun and well executed evening. Both Robin and Yolanda were superb.

Hello Shirley,

I have to tell you how impressed Jim and I were with your staff, your service and wonderful food! Meredith was so helpful throughout the process of arranging the time, food choices, set-up, bar service, etc. She truly knows how to “organize” and expedite when necessary. We even had a little “glitch” with an unexpected rain storm by the pool and your staff was incredible with moving everything into the house with full bar set up and dining room buffet.

The food was amazing and our guests continue to compliment on how professional your staff presented themselves and service. Everyone loved the food and choices that Meredith suggested. They know how to work as a team which was refreshing to me. Meredith and her staff cleaned up the entire kitchen and wrapped up any food that was left. How nice to wake up to a clean kitchen!

Thank you for your fabulous service and presentation. Oh, and hail to the chefs! We will certainly be calling you again!

Dear Shirley,

I want to personally thank you and your staff for helping to make my daughter’s wedding at Silverbrook Farm a wonderful event. As the mother of the bride, I could not have been more pleased with your catering.

The food your staff prepared and served was absolutely delicious! The wedding guests were quick to compliment how wonderful everything tasted- both the appetizers and the dinner. The buffet line and the food looked so beautiful, the meal was hot and delicious, and the staff were all very professional.

You also went beyond providing excellent food. You personally took the lead to make sure the tables and the entire barn were decorated well. You even made great use of the flowers and the LED candles we had brought. I can’t thank you enough for doing that and creating a beautiful setting. The arrangement of the ‘pie bar’ was perfect. Your decorator’s touch made a tremendous difference!

You and Meredith and your entire staff did a fabulous job! Thank you so much for helping make my daughter’s wedding all she had hoped it would be.

Sincerely,

–Becky L.
