Shane and his team are incredible! They offered a full tasting for items we created. Yes, they allowed us to create a menu, we did not have to pick and chose from a set list of options. If you are looking for great tasting food for your guests, a great team to work with and a menu that you love, Caroline Street Catering is who you should call.

Working with Chef Shane and his team was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding! Catering is one of if not the biggest expense when planning a wedding, and it was important to us to work with someone that we could trust with our event. The food was spectacular, and we had several guests tell us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! We wanted a southern style menu and Shane absoultely delivered...I still dream about his fried chicken. We had a wedding of about 130 and decided to do family style salads and bread at the table, and then dinner served buffet style. They had the buffet moving very officiantly and made sure everyone was fed quickly. We also rented the table settings from Shane and they looked exactly like we had hoped. Shane was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. He was always very responsive to my emails with questions and flexible with any changes. His staff was extremely friendly and proffesional the night of our wedding. We also really enjoyed our menu tasting experience! You're allowed to bring four people, so myself, my fiance at the time, and my parents were all able to taste a multitude of dishes. We left stuffed with boxes of leftovers knowing our catering decision was made.

Overall, our experience with Caroline Street Catering was great, largely thanks to our time working with Shane. He was incredibly helpful and flexible in putting together an all vegetarian menu for our wedding - our guests gave the food rave reviews! It was great to work with someone who was willing to work with us and be creative! I also GREATLY appreciated that on our wedding day, the catering team sent out a server to wait on my husband and me immediately following the ceremony while we continued to take family pictures. Having someone there to wait on us personally with water and snacks was so appreciated - I can't thank the catering team enough for this thoughtful gesture! One area where Caroline Street can improve is with their bartending services. My husband and I provided the alcohol for our wedding and so we had made requests and provided specific instructions in regards to what mixers the vendor should bring, what to serve to guests and when, etc., but it became evident throughout the night that the staff had not followed through with these requests - we started running out of mixers within the first hour of our wedding, resulting in guests being served shots of liquor the rest of the night. Even more, at the end of the night, the bar staff started packing up our unused alcohol into their trucks. Thankfully one of my family members stopped them and we got everything back, but it was pretty disappointing to hear about the next day. I think Shane does excellent work and I have the highest amount of respect for him, but I would encourage greater oversight and better communication with the bar staff, as this is an area that needs attention, particularly if the bride and groom are providing the alcohol.

Shane from Caroline Street Catering was awesome! We went here for a food tasting and he went above and beyond in letting us sample whatever we were interested in on the menu and gave us boxes of leftovers to take home! I also loved that he provided BBQ buffet as an option because that is exactly what my (then fiance now husband) had in mind for our wedding. At the end of our day there were boxes in leftovers with bride and groom in sharpie written on them. We enjoyed the leftovers the next day and early into the next week while we were still recovering from all the excitement and had not gone to the store yet. Would definitely recommend Shane and his crew.

We had Caroline Street cater our wedding rehearsal and wedding reception. My husband and father went to the initial meeting/tasting, as I was unable to make it, but we knew they were the ones as even the huge boxes of food Chef Shane sent home with them for me to try were delicious when I re-heated them the next day! They truly did a fantastic job! For our rehearsal Chef Shane did an amazing job catering to my Puerto Rican husband’s heritage with chicken, plantains, rice/frijoles, papas and tres leches cake. Everyone still talks about the rehearsal dinner (and my husband still talks about the tres leches)! The reception food was just as good and we all enjoyed eating leftovers. I cannot recall the name of one of our bartenders, but she was so sweet and took care of us the entire night as we never made it back to the bar area with trying to talk to all of our guests. We cannot say enough about them! Thank you!

Chef Shane and the entire Caroline Street Catering was absolutely amazing! They were always so incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the whole process and really worked with us to create a menu that was perfect for us/our special day. We have heard SO MANY responses from guests saying that the food was incredible - and we couldn't agree more!!! Every single dish we had was so delicious and perfectly prepared on our day (we had 4 or so cocktail hour hour devours and a full buffet for dinner). We really, really appreciated just how easy Caroline Street was to work with and how Chef Shane truly listened to everything we voiced regarding our menu and really went the extra mile to personalize it just for us. I wish I could eat their food every single day!!! I could not recommend them more - they are an absolute must as a caterer for your wedding!

Chef Shane and his crew are absolutely phenomenal - I'm not even sure if I can put into words how great he is, in fact I would use him for every event I ever have catered. I do management consulting for a living and know outstanding (above 5.0) customer service when I see it!!! We used Caroline Street for rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception. Shane is the most caring person and wants to help ensure the day runs smoothly - from all small to big details (color schemes, decor for venue, etc.), he makes concrete recommendations based on your style and preferences. Shane came up to see us at the wedding and we bombarded him with hugs. As a bride, the planning and coordination of small details can be very overwhelming - fear not, Shane helps you think through literally everything (more than once also!!!). During the wedding the staff was so amazingly sweet and accommodating - really made us feel beyond special on our big day. I would recommend Caroline Street Catering to anyone out there who wants to have amazing food, impeccable quality service, and wants someone to treat you like family while working with you!!!! WE heart you Shane and crew!!!! See you for whatever our next big event is!! Kathy and Jack

Shane and his crew were wonderful. The food was delicious and exactly what we wanted. It was food everyone could enjoy. The servers were attentive and made sure everyone was taken care of. We did our toast (with bourbon because that's how we roll) and Shane's crew made sure the right people had apple juice instead of Jefferson Reserved. But it was Shane's personal touch that makes Caroline Street so perfect. My husband and I had just finished the photo session and were sitting outside, enjoying the brief respite before our big entrance. The planner asked if we'd like a snack. I said, "yes! We should get to enjoy the apps too!". Two minutes later, Shane himself comes out with a platter of his fabulous appetizers. We go, "YES!". Amazing. It's that personal touch that sets Shane and Caroline Street Cafe & Catering above the rest.

WOW, I cannot say enough amazing things about Chef Shane and his team at Caroline Street Catering! We asked a lot of them and we received everything we wanted and more. We asked Chef Shane to create a menu of Korean food based on recipes and tasting tweaks while also incorporating some of his creative additions and a small portion of outside food. The food exceeded our expectations and our guests would not stop raving about the meal! We were told by multiple people that our wedding food was the best they have had at a wedding. On top of that, the service on the day of was exceptional. My husband and I kept hearing that we would not eat much on our wedding day so we should try to fit some snacks in. Let me tell you, this was not the case. A couple servers kept checking on us specifically to make sure we were fed and got to taste everything. We were brought cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres while we were taking photos and served a huge dish during dinner. Guests commented on the how lovely the servers and bartenders were and we were so pleased to hear that the excellent service was not just for us. Chef Shane was so easy to work with and we could trust that he would deliver every step of the way. We are so happy with our decision to hire Caroline Street Catering and I have full confidence they would make any other couple happy as can be on their wedding day!!!

CHEF SHANE IS DA BOMB!!!!!!! Lol. That being said, the man knows how to cook up a storm. He was very flexible and accommodating in every sense of the word. He made simple foods in the most delicious manner. All of the guests were complimenting the food. We had bang bang shrimp, crab cakes, and bruschetta for appetizers. He provided the bartenders and waiters for the event. He was very organized in communicating with my venue on last minute details. I really have no complaints about him. He even waived our cake cutting and tasting fees. There was a TON of food at the tasting. Compared to other caterers, he was very affordable. He's super flexible in what he can make for the event. I noticed he even bought herbs from local growers. Great presentation, too. I strongly recommend him for any event!! Rock on Chef Shane!
