I’m from Michigan and had a destination wedding in Folly Beach, SC. April worked with me via phone and email to plan the menu and was super helpful and responsive. Mike catered the meal into our rental home and the food was amazing and he was so accomodating, both we and our gueats loved him and the food. I would very highly recommend them for any of your catering needs!!”


“I worked with April. I live in Indiana and the wedding was in the Charleston, SC area. I would recommend Mike Petrillo and his crew to anyone who wants a fantastic dinner. We used Crave! For both the rehearsal and wedding reception dinners. Both were buffets. Both were delicious. Both events were attended by ~120 people. We received positive comments on both dinners. YUM!!!! Use them. You won’t be disappointed. additionally, I love to cook, and I know wonderful food. This is it!!!”

“Everything was wonderful- the food, the service, the chefs! Words are really not adequate to describe how pleased we were with all that the folks at Crave did for us at the reception. We highly recommend Crave!”

“Flexibility-MOST CERTAINLY! It was a super rainy wedding and Mike and his staff at Crave were ready and willing for anything. When the rain had left standing water under our tent where guests were supposed to be seated, they said “no worries, we will stand in the mud.” When they showed up and it was worse than they expected they again were willing to set up in less than ideal conditions and serve the most delicious food ever!!! All my guests raved about dinner both nights (they also did our rehearsal). The shrimp and grits were a favorite and the best I’ve ever put in my mouth. We love you guys.”

“If you are having a wedding in the Charleston area Crave Catering is amazing! My husband and I are both chefs and our food had to be PERFECT…and Crave did not let us down…People are and will be talking about how great the food was for years to come…seriously.”

“Working with Crave and their amazing staff has been a treat. I have used them for two parties that involved a university pre-game party and a school annual fund party. People from both parties are still raving about the food, the wonderful service and the lovely staff working the party. The food is beyond words- it is local, it is delicious and there is great variety. For someone like me who doesn’t know menus, there is great help creating a menu and an atmosphere using the food to complement your event. The staff is prompt, almost invisible in their work and they make it seem effortless as they are putting these beautiful choices on trays. They take care of everything and my kitchen is always cleaner when they leave than before they got there. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are a treat to work with and you will be pleased with everything part of the process.”

“Food choices are extraordinary; every salad, entree and divine dessert includes local Southern ingredients.
The wait staff is impeccable; they are courteous, timely and efficient. Crave is defined as EXTRAORDINARY. I have used many, many catering services – Crave is the best in the entire Charleston area, bar none!”

“…Thank you again for the GREAT FOOD you prepared for our company party. Its been a month now since the party and everyone at Allegheny Installations Inc. are still in awe about the wonderful food you and you team put together for us. Can’t wait to do it again soon. Just an unbelivable culinary experience for the whole company. Best wishes and THANK YOU again.”

“Just a line to tell you and everyone at cRaVE catering what a fabulous job you did on our party. The food was just awesome and everyone is still talking about it. You are a wonderful chef and your staff is just the best. The seafood was just the best in the world. Can’t wait to do it again. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.”

“Thank you for making our weekend getaway such great fun! The dinner on Friday night was scrumptious to say the least…several people commented that the steak was the best they had ever had (and, that is going some! Great compliment for you). The asparagus and onion rings were delicious. Both desserts made a bit hit! You were so correct in saying that we could eat all weekend on the amount of food you provided to us~ we all went home with ‘leftovers’ to continue enjoying our adventure.”

“A group of friends were celebrating a significant birthday for one of our members. We were a little hesitant because we are from Pa. and were not familiar with Charleston Caterers. We made a great selection in chosing Crave Catering. The dinner was delicious and they were very responsive to our needs. We spent more than we would have at a restaurant but the memories from that night in the Isle of Palms at our Beach House are Priceless to all of us.”

“April was wonderful to work with – easily accommodated my requests for gluten-free food (with Chef Mike’s assistance!), and was communicative throughout the process. April was here for the event and was wonderful! She blended into the event so easily that people didn’t even notice her replenishing food and cleaning up. She left the house clean and tidy – making the whole process complete!”

“I cannot say enough good things about Mike P. at Crave. We have been going to his restaurant since it opened and have never been less than wowed. Mike catered our wedding last week and it was beyond perfect as usual. Our guests are still raving about how amazing the food was. No one went hungry. Let Mike cater your event or just stop in for a bite to eat. He will dazzle you.”

“Crave catered our wedding reception and their pastry chef provided our wedding cake. The food was phenomenal, and everyone remarked on how delicious it was. The cake was stunning and delicious, which is rare for a wedding cake.”

“They don’t get one bit better than Mike and Crave. Its impossible to describe how awesome his food really is. Thanks Mike!”

“I have never seen a chef ( your group of chefs actually) who can connect with guests and deliver a knockout menu and do it all. You really go above and beyond, real class act. Thanks so much. “
