We can't say enough of how amazing the food was at our wedding. Many people commented that the chicken was the best they'd ever had. The serving was more than enough for everyone. Our guest were able to get a meat, starch, vegetable, roll, and a drink. The employees that were catering that night were very friendly and helpful. They even cut and served the cake. Becky was very responsive with my emails and helped me to decide was going to be the most popular to serve and the price was very reasonable, especially with everything that came with it. I highly recommend Bob's catering. We were very satisfied that it played a special part in making our wedding perfect.

I highly recommend Catering by Bob. We had them cater our holiday party this year with a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings. The food was delicious, hot and the servers were extremely professional. They arrived early and cleared and cleaned up everything when we were finished eating. We were especially impressed that they actually served us even though it was buffet style which ensured portion control, although the portions were quite generous. We will definitely be using them again for any of our catering needs.

Attended a wedding in Panama City Beach this weekend and had, hands down, one of the best meals I've ever had at a wedding reception. Everything from the service, the aesthetic appeal, and the taste was superb. The staff was polite, well mannered and catered to the need of every guest, not just the bride and groom. The meal was full of flavor and satisfied everyone in attendance. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Dear Becky & Bob, Thank you for helping to make our wedding day extra special by providing us with impeccable service and wonderful, wonderful food! Nearly four weeks after the wedding, our guests are STILL raving about the food.  Everyone has also been very complimentary of the professionalism and kindness of the two young women on your catering staff who worked the wedding.  The groom’s only regret is that he did not order an entire pan of Banana Pudding for himself!

I just want to say thank you for making our family reunion a huge success. You catered our reunion on June 27th at St. Andrews State Park.  We were hosting it from out of town and didn’t know what to expect. Michelle and Paul put our minds at ease.  They were so professional and personable. The food was amazing! We received rave reviews! You made us look really good. It was well worth the price.  Thanks again.

The food and service was absolutely fabulous for my wedding last week!  Thank you so much, everyone really enjoyed it.
May 23, 2015

I wanted to give a most heartfelt thank you to both of you from our entire project. I know our interaction was extremely brief, but I cannot communicate to you both how much of a blessing your catering was to our project… The food was PERFECT. We ran out of beans on the LAST plate we had to serve, same thing with the pudding. I received nothing but compliments about the food… Gratefully,

Just a little note to say thank you for the wonderful job you and your staff did for our welcome reception and wedding. I really appreciated the fact that you were prompt and the food was great! Everyone raved about the ranch potatoes and the pasta and chicken parmesan even impressed our picky Italian family! Just one comment, I had asked for rolls other than the yeast Sam Club rolls (the ciabatta) and that I would pay extra if necessary and you said you have a new baker you are using for your rolls now. I was looking forward to that, but we ended up with the Sam’s Club yeast rolls [:(] Thanks again,    –   (I am so sorry about the rolls…yes, we had contracted out with a bakery…but the owner was out of town that week and the first time we got rolls from them that week they were extremely hard and TINY. So we went back to Sam’s rolls for our events while the owner was out of town. I remembered someone had requested ‘No Sam’s’ but didn’t remember who it was, so that was entirely my fault for not writing it down. Once again I’m sorry! We are so glad you enjoyed all the other food though! – Becky)

Pam & Angel
Becky, Thanks so much for catering our son and daughter in laws destination wedding to Destin FLA in Aug! The FOOD was wonderful!!! The grilled chicken and grilled tilapia were complimented by all and all the other dishes were very good and delivered hot and ready to serve. The mini cheesecakes were also a hit and added a nice touch to the meal. I want to give a BIG THANKS to Sean who delivered the food and was so kind and helpful when the address became difficult to find he was patient and helpful to figure it all out. The meal arrived right at perfect timing and Sean’s help was so appreciated!! Becky you were wonderful to work with and me and my husband as well as all our dinner guests would be happy to refer Catering by Bob for others catering needs. Thanks again!!

Thanks for being so great to work with. We had a wonderful reunion and the food was absolutely delicious!!!

I want to personally thank you and your staff for the amazing food. Your staff was top notch! They made sure everything was perfect and that the guest had plenty of food and drinks and kept everything stocked. I really appreciate it, and showed my appreciation to your staff and ensured they made a few extra bucks along the way. Thank goodness we only have one daughter, but if we had more, you would definitely be who would be providing the catering. The guest raved about the tri-tip! Thanks

Hi Becky: Just wanted to say thank you for the catering this past weekend. Everything went very smoothly and was all delicious (especially the mac and cheese & dressings)! The weekend was wonderful.

Hi Becky, I never had a chance to thank you so much for making this order/ catered breakfast so easier and absolutely delicious. Our swimmers were more than sufficiently feed.

Tony and I would like to say THANK-YOU for catering Jessica & Max’s wedding reception. I cannot say enough words to tell you how wonderful the food was. We heard from our guests many times over that the food was fantastic. The hot food was hot and the cold food was cold and it was arranged and presented so well. It made a very special occasion so much more special. You all do a great job and again let me say Thank-you so very much!

Well, the wedding is over and we are back home. It was a beautiful weekend. I just wanted to tell you that the food you provided for the rehearsal dinner was delicious and received a lot of compliments. Thanks for all your help in making this a success. Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

We recently spent a week at this property [The Big House along with Serenity by the Sea] and can’t say enough about how beautiful it is. The Big House along with Serenity by the Sea proved to be the perfect wedding venue with ample room for the wedding party and guests. We were also given an excellent suggestion for a caterer (Catering by Bob) which was so helpful to us! We hope to return soon for vacation!

Thank you for catering our party on Wednesday, May 29. The food was great & everybody raved about the ribs and chicken!. Thank you!

Thank you so much Bob for the wonderful service and delicious food. We had a small beach wedding on June 7th and planned to cook the reception food ourselves but the house we rented had a poorly equipped kitchen. On the day before the wedding we decided to try catering and called Catering By Bob. They were so nice and wonderful to deal with. So refreshing these days! The food arrived exactly on time and was very hot and delicious. We had 35 people and 3 choices of meat that we couldn’t decide which was the best. Mashed potatoes were the best ever and we had corn, rolls, tea with ice and glasses and plates with napkins and utensils. Everyone raved about how delicious the food was. Especially since it was so last minute we were really overwhelmed at how perfect everything turned out. Can’t say enough good about Bob and his business. Delivery guy said he had been with Bob for 20 years and he got the food in fast and was very professional. Don’t worry about this place if you are wanting catering! They know what they are doing!

Becky (and Bob), I just wanted to let you know that everything was wonderful for our wedding reception. I really appreciate you coming and setting it up in our condo. The food was fantastic and the set up was very nice. I have had cucumber sandwiches about a million times in my life for various bridal/baby/etc showers but I must say…your’s were the best I have ever tasted. Everyone there raved about all of the food. God Bless and Thank you again!

Becky, Lunch was great! Arrived right on time, food hot, tasty and plentiful. Everyone complimented my choice, good advice on the potatoes! Thank you for great service and good food, definitely will come to you again. Thanks,

Becky, What a great job! Thanks to you and Bob for making our trip everything we hoped for. All the meals were GREAT, everyone loved it and my wife had a wonderful time. You have a great service and we were very pleased with all your group did. Take care and thanks once again!

Dear Chef Bob, I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your catering service at our daughters wedding reception May 25. All our guests raved at how good the food was. Your staff was very pleasant and professional. I would recommend your catering service to anyone holding any type of event.

Holly & Jordan

Just wanted to let you guys know what an amazing job you did catering our wedding on 5/18/13. The food was absolutely delicious!! Numerous people at the wedding said it was some of the BEST food they ever had! We thoroughly enjoyed the leftovers as well. We have already referred you guys to several friends & can’t wait for the opportunity to use your catering services again for future events! Thank you so much! Love,

Dear Bob, I wanted to write and let you know how thankful I was that you took the time to trim your trees so that Megan could have the greenery on the food table as requested. Thank you again for cutting the fruit. The presentation was very beautiful. As I continue to look back over the pictures, I am still in awe over how beautiful things came together. And not to down play the food, but the food was exceptional. I had many comments over how good the food was and quite impressed with the size of those shrimp…Thank you again, your presentation did not go unnoticed.

Hey Becky, Thank you so very much for working with us on our son’s rehearsal dinner. You made it easier on me! And now let’s talk about the food! It was ALL outstanding! So tasty and delicious! Do you guys have a review page on the Internet ? Either way, I am posting on Fb when I get back to MS. Thanks for going above and beyond with us and being so very helpful as well! Blessings on you and on Catering By Bob!

Sher & Stephen
Dear Becky & Bob, Thank you so much for making our Valentine meal wonderful and ever so easy on all of us. The food, as always, was melting in our mouths! I am glad that you will provide food for as few as ten. It is an easy way to host a dinner party without the fuss! I could not have taken everyone out to eat for the same price and could not match the quality of the meal. We will use you again and again….


The food was great. Bread pudding was the best part! Thank you so much for your help. We look forward to future endeavors with your business!


Hey Bob! I attended a Christmas Party last night (that you catered) and I just want to tell you the food was AMAZING. You are my new caterer!!!! You have just gained some new clients:-) Will be in touch SOON. Wishing you happy holidays!!!

I just wanted to let you know everyone loved the food, it was delicious! And the guys did a fabulous job taking care of us. We were very pleased and will certainly be using you again and sending referrals your way!

Just had to write a quick note to let you and Bob know how amazing our Holiday Gathering at Carillon was last evening. The food was wonderful, and you had so many compliments. Thank you for a job well done; we are definitely looking forward to using you again as we plan for the New Year. Thanks from all of the committee.
