- "Spectacular" is the word I would use to describe Caroline Street Catering. The Head Chef/Owner, Shane, is wonderful and very easy to talk/work with. He made everything from the first tasting all the way to the end of the wedding absolutely perfect. Very accommodating and organized. 110% the best choice! Thank you Caroline Street!
- Shane and his staff were great. His food was really outstanding and roundly enjoyed by our guests. There were many comments on the flavor and quality of the food and his unique flavorings and rubs for everything from the prime rib to the cinnamon carrots. He even created a special Mediterranean chicken dish for us when we wanted a different twist on his regular offerings.
- Caroline Street was amazing! Chef Shane was very helpful. We were less than 2 months away from the wedding with no caterer. Our venue put us in touch with Caroline Street and Chef Shane was able to quickly put together a menu and tasting. The food was great and within our budget. The Chef and all of his staff were pleasant to work with.
- Everyone was so sweet and friendly. We had such a wonderful carefree wedding because I honestly didn't have to think about a thing. The crew handled everything beautifully. The presentation was amazing!!! I can't wait to get the pictures of it all. Thank you Chef Shane for all your hard work! Keep me informed of the next wine dinner!
