Best in the business!

My fiance and I stopped in to do our tasting with Sue and the team last week – and we were blown away! Sue asked all the right questions about our wedding – she was thinking about everything down to the colors, theme, dietary restrictions, you name it! The food was also delicious. You can’t go wrong with Sue and her amazing team! We can’t wait to see you on our wedding day in January!  ~ Sydney S.

Kudos from our Clients

I’m the director of a local dog rescue, and we love Sue!  Each year we have a big fundraiser event, and for the past two years, Sue has been so generous and has donated a dish that fed about 100 people! And I will attest that the dishes tasted absolutely amazing! We have contacted several caterers each year and asked for help but Sue is the one and only caterer who was kind enough to give back to her community and help homeless dogs.  Thank you sooo much, Sue with Straight to the Plate!  You don’t know how much we appreciate you.   Rotten Rottie Rescue LOVES you!! ~ Shelly F.

Our company has been using Straight to the Plate catering services for the last couple of years since seeing their reviews here on yelp.  I am so glad we decided to try them because we could not have picked a better catering service! Brett and Sue and the rest of their staff are extremely helpful and professional, and really know how to treat their customers.  I am usually the one to organize our company events, and when they cater for us, they handle everything! I am able to relax and enjoy the event and not have to worry about serving food or decorating the buffet tables.  Not only is their customer service amazing, their prices are reasonable and their food is delicious! Whatever event we have, they always have great menu ideas to make the event special and unique.  They always bring enough staff to make the event run smoothly and quickly.  The last event we had was in July for 125 people, and everyone was sitting and enjoying their food 10 minutes after it was served.  I would highly recommend them to anyone needing catering for an event big or small.  We plan on using them for many more of our lunch events! ~ Areli S.
