  • I just can't thank Hamby enough for the delicious food and grand presentation! Everything was perfect!!! We have received so many complements from our guests. It was an absolute pleasure working with the Hamby team, especially Caroline and Casey. They both went above and beyond!!! We appreciate everything you did to make it a wonderful and memorable evening!  Sandra (May 2017)-Facebook

  • Hamby's was wonderful to work with! Caroline coordinated everything for us and she was very helpful and creative with planning. The tasting a few months before the wedding was an awesome experience. Hamby's was very accommodating and easy to work with. Everything was set up perfectly at the reception too. Excellent choice!!  Rebecca (May 2017)-The Knot

  • Planning a conference for 200 plus people is not an easy task when you are planning from the upstate for a conference to be held in Charleston. Past experiences have taught me you never know what you're going to get when you hire a caterer for the first time. I can honestly say that Hamby catering was phenomenal. Great care was provided to ensure we had a great menu within our budget and that we were able to accommodate food allergies and/or nutritional requirements. The Hamby experience was fabulous. They were professional at every turn. The food was delicious and the service top notch. I was very surprised and pleased at how they moved over 200 people through two serving lines in pretty tight quarters in a very timely manner. Thank you Hamby catering for a great experience.  Dr. M -Google

  • Our guests could not stop talking about how great the food was! Thank you to Caroline at Hamby for being so helpful with the planning and last minute changes. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have been more happy. My husband and I have especially enjoyed the basket and leftovers you sent us home with! It was perfect in every way and everything was seamless. Thank you!!!.  Alex (Apr 2017)-Facebook

  • If you want a true Charleston hospitality and southern fare experience, for sure book Hamby. Delicious food, excellent service and the history and values of a family-owned company. We just loved everything that Hamby cooked up for our wedding. We received many compliments on the food and service but our favorite part was the bride and groom basket they sent home with us for after the wedding. Excellent service and flexibility, as an out-of-town couple they accommodated us for tasting times and menu planning which was much appreciated. Thank you Ryan, Melanie, Patrick and everyone on the Hamby Team!! Dagny (Mar. 2017)-Wedding Wire

  • A great big thank you to the whole Hamby team! My party was perfect. Everyone had a wonderful time and was beyond impressed by the food that was as delicious as it was beautifully presented.

    Three of my guests were professional chefs (graduates of CIA), and they all agreed that this was the best catered event they had ever attended, except for the ones that they have catered - of course. Don't you love that? ... Margaret (May 2017)-Wedding Wire

  • House party for 25 food-experienced guests. Hamby won high praise from all for service and food quality. Having held a large number of catered events over the past few years, Hamby is a clear stand-out. One added "extra" -- when the event is over, the clean-up is so complete, it is almost as if the event never happened. This is a first-class operation.  Curt (Oct 2016) -Google
