Read what brides have said about us!

I am so glad that Old Carolina was one of the catering options at my venue. My husband and I both wanted to serve barbecue to match the casual setting of our venue, and Old Carolina’s service and value really cannot be matched. In addition to the dinner, their staff helped set up the entire venue and I could seemingly rent the entire Miller’s party supply catalog through them, making it easy to add additional lighting, fans, and other necessities my venue did not have. The catering manager I worked with, Brooke, was so helpful in the planning process and was really flexible when I needed to make changes in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Their menu is delicious and they have a surprising amount of flexibility for people with dietary restrictions, including the ability to clearly label the food so your guests don’t have to bother you with questions! We also had so much food leftover that we were able to feed all the out of town guests the next day!  ~ Review from The Knot 1/9/18

Our wedding was catered by Old Carolina. Brooke, our coordinator, was extremely helpful and good at listening. Our food was amazing, the prices were very reasonable, and we were overall very happy with Old Carolina. Of all our friends who have been recently married, I think we paid the lowest amount and ended up with the best food. Highly Recommended!! ~ Review from The Knot 9/6/17"

We both were really pleased with our meal, and specifically with Brooke Guiley, who coordinated everything for us, and just wanted to give some positive feedback. We both were impressed with how attentive and helpful Brooke was, and we really appreciated the fact that we felt like she was on our side with everything. We didn’t have a lot of money, and Brooke was really helpful at walking us through all our costs. The meal was excellent, and the service was great, and we would definitely recommend OC to our friends. ~ Jordan V. 6/6/17

I just wanted to say thank you! Choosing you guys to cater our wedding was easily the best (and most important) decision we made for our wedding! The food was so, so delicious! I'm not even exaggerating when I say our guests are still raving about how wonderful the food was! Even our vegetarian guests (who find fault in all vegetarian meals) were super thrilled with their dinners! The serving staff was phenomenal, and so kind and friendly and professional. Everything was just perfect! ~ Stephanie S. 7/20/17

I cannot leave a higher review for Old Carolina! From our initial emails to our tasting to our wedding day, we could not be more pleased with their professionalism, attention to detail, and positive attitudes. Leslianne was amazing to work with, and was incredibly prompt with her email responses and returned phone calls. She did everything possible to ensure our day was everything we imagined it to be and was incredibly accommodating with our ideas. The food served at our wedding was even better than what we had sampled at our tasting and at the Old Carolina restaurant. They pulled the pork right as my husband and I walked up to the buffet table! Our guests loved our non-traditional menu, and many went up for seconds and thirds. I absolutely recommend Old Carolina for your "I Do BBQ"! ~ Jenna D. 6/27/17

We used Old Carolina BBQ to cater our post-destination wedding luncheon at Hale Farm. Working with Leslianne to coordinate all of the details was an absolute pleasure. She is super professional, kind and knowledgeable. The staff on the day of the event (I wish I could remember the name of the manager/lead on that day!) was EXCEPTIONAL. When we arrived, the staff had an "all hands on deck" attitude and were willing to pitch in wherever we needed. It was very appreciated! Now, on to the food. IT. WAS. DELICIOUS! Our guests raved about it, and it was the perfect accompaniment for our laid-back event. The food/service package that we selected was a great value and included so much (linens, etc.). ~ Megan 5/30/17

Thank you Old Carolina for making our wedding so delicious!!! It was perfect and our guests loved it!!! ~ Kelly 4/17/17
