      Cater Tampa catered our Christmas Party this year. The process of ordering food from them could not have been easier. Cater Tampa was extremely easy to work with and are very knowledgeable. The food was delivered to my business at the exact time we agreed upon. The spread of food was MORE that I imagined and not only that, but the quality of food was EXCELLENT. It arrived hot and with great flavor! I received a multitude of compliments on the food! Thank you Adam and staff for making our Christmas Party stress free for us and happy for our employees and guests! I highly recommend! Wendy Cook- CJ’s Saloon / Riverview, Florida

      We had the pleasure of having Cater Tampa cater our wedding on Saturday February 10, 2018 at the Wishing Well Barn. The food was absolutely delicious, and we could not have had a better meal at our wedding. We have been to weddings before where the food was just blah and nothing special and not that delicious. Cater Tampa puts other catering companies to shame. Everything homemade for scratch what more could you ask for?! Not only is the food delicious, but the Chef and owner, Adam Harris and Sales and Event Coordinator, Shannon Hampton are such amazing, nice people they helped us with everything! They patiently answered all of our questions and answered all of our emails. We love the company, the food, and Adam and Shannon so much we decided last minute to have our rehearsal dinner at the Chateau. It was perfect and more than we were expecting. Shannon and Adam, we thank you so much for everything you did for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception!Love, Sean and Courtney Butler

      They made me and my fiancée the most amazing tasting when we came into to try their food, but when they brought the food to my 120 person wedding we were unbelievably disappointed the chicken was SO dry it was unedible and the beef was dry as well but not as dry as the chicken and we spent another $700 on a Mac and cheese bar and thought it would be fun and exciting and it came with two meats and I literally couldn’t tell what meat was what because it looked so gross. The Mac was good though but disappointing toppings. Called to tell them about my experience and the response I got was we made the same chicken for another wedding that night and they loved it, and tried to blame my wedding venue.

      Had my 3rd visit today at Cater Tampa. Every visit is better than the one before. I leave thinking, there is no way they can top this. Let me tell you, I have been pleasantly surprised. Chef Adam and his team operates in excellence. They serve like no others and always with a smile. They make you feel absolutely welcome. Now my final comment about the food and the atmosphere......TRY IT! Whether it is your place or his....Chef Adam will set the atmosphere. Your guest will rave for months afterwards. I promise.

      I went to a private event tonight at Cater Tampa and it was GREAT! Not only was the food top of the line and tasty, but the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The owner was also very personable and made a point to talk with the guests and move around the room. I would suggest Cater Tampa to anyone looking for a caterer to make their event special!

      We loved working with this company and they went out of there way to help us! The main hiccup we had was contacting them was a little bit challenging. The chicken was also not as good (a bit dry and missing a lot of the sauce) as the tasting, but their service was INCREDIBLE!
