    June 19, 2024

    We had Big Cats cater our entire 180 person wedding, and we could not be happier with them. They were super flexible and easy to work with, and able to navigate all our guests' allergies and dietary restrictions gracefully. The food was, and I can't stress this enough, FANTASTIC. Don't count this as a single 5 star review, count it as 180 5 star reviews, because literally everyone was raving about how good the dinner was. Thank you so much Big Cats! Our special day couldn't have happened without you, and we wish your business the very best going forward.
