Personal Reviews

“Chef Larry and his crew are amazing. We were planning our wedding from the other end of the state. Larry kept up great communication and went through everything to make sure our guests food allergies would be safe so they could enjoy everything. His crew was great at the site as well. Very friendly and effcient. If I hold another event in his area, he will certainly be the first one called.” – Jacob

“We booked Chef’s Pride Catering for our Wedding. They got almost as many compliments as my dress! The food was fantastic, communication before the event as well as working with their staff on the big day was right on point. We could not have been happier, or had things go any more smoothly. They come with my highest recommendation and most sincere appreciation.” – Jessica

“Larry at Chef’s Pride Catering is the best! We were coming from the Detroit area for our wedding in Frankfort, MI and Larry was soooo helpful with suggestions on what would be our best options since this was basically a do it yourself wedding. Even if those options were not beneficial to him. He is a great chef and really understands the business and what customers want and enjoys what he does. His food is great(and wonderfully priced!). I recommend going to his tasting if possible, I couldn’t have been more pleased with Larry and his staff at Chef’s Pride Catering!” – Callie

“Larry at Chef’s Pride Catering did a spectacular job for our outdoor summer wedding! Larry was easy to reach. This was something that was very important to us, as we were planning our wedding from 4 hours away! Chef’s Pride provided us with such an authentic and unique menu to choose from. The service was incredible and the food was even better! Our guests provided us with nothing but positive feedback regarding how the food tasted! Larry also worked with us within our budget and made it a point for himself to be at our cocktail hour and reception in order to make sure that everything ran smoothly! We would highly recommend Chef’s Pride Catering!” – Natalie

“Chef Larry and his team are every bride’s dream come true! The food is amazing, the team is very professional, and Larry is so organized that he literally takes care of everything. He’s also a super nice guy! Highly recommend Chef’s Pride for your wedding. He made ours wonderful and our guests are still raving about the food!” – Laura

“Not only was the team great, but the food was as well. The service even when it was raining never let up. – Erin
