What They Say

Honestly I'd give 10 stars if I could. John was beyond amazing! He accepted our event even though it was last-minute. He was easy to get a hold of and easy to talk to. The displays he created made it apparent that he loves his career. They were beautiful and he thought of every little detail. We are so happy and already booked another date in June. If you are in need of a professional, look no further!

Arpi Hartnett

John did am amazing job helping us create the perfect oyster roast! From the initial contact, John was professional and easy to work with. The presentation was excellent and the perfectly cooked oysters were even more fabulous! His Caesar salad and chili are a must try, as well. If you’re looking for help to plan the perfect party with ease, John Reed is your guy. We will definitely use him again!

Krisha Biggers

John Reed is a true pro. He came to our apartment community and put together the best Oyster Roast we've ever had. Our residents raved about the food and the set up. They loved John and were so impressed with how hard he worked to put together such an amazing event. I would, and hopefully will, work with Reeds Catering again!

Ryan Hunsucker

John did a fantastic job helping us with a party and oyster roast. He was professional, communicated promptly, and even tweaked a menu just a few days out to accommodate some changes. Absolutely effortless way to host an oyster roast or other catered party at a very good value. We will definitely be using him again.

Jules Deas

Reeds Catering did an amazing job with our daughters 21st birthday party catering. John was very responsive and communicated frequently, making the whole process stress free. The lowcountry boil and oyster roast were outstanding. The tables were set up perfectly and everyone had enough knives, gloves, etc. Reeds catering will be my go to for oyster roasts and large party catering for sure!
