We had Kettelhut cater an event for us this weekend and honestly, we cannot say enough amazing things about them. We had them serve 2 lunches and a dinner service for over 100 people. I had so many people tell us how amazing the food was. A few people said it was the best food they have ever had at a Christmas tree meeting.

Jeff was amazing to work with, even helping us in a pinch when our last caterer failed us. he made the process so easy, and always kept us up to date on everything and anything. Again, thank you so much for everything and we will definitely be using your catering services again!

Fantastic food. The portions were huge. The ribs were the best I’ve ever had. They were literally falling off of the bone. The turkey breast was very good. You must get the onion rings. There was more than enough food for 2 large meals.

Super friendly and attentive staff. Food was great!! I love the pulled pork baked potato and shared a huge piece of cherry pie that was delicious! Can’t wait to go back next time I’m in the area!
