Testimonials

 

I was super pleased with the entire process with Milo's Catering! Communication was easy, the staff was ready to answer any questions I had, and was willing to make the day as special as possible. My husband and I had so much fun at our tasting to pick out food. The food options provided a nice variety, unique choices, and very yummy! Our guests really loved the food we picked. Come the night of the event, the staff was very nice and accommodating. I would recommend Milo's to all!

I am not sure where to begin, other than to say Milo's made my wedding over-the-top perfect! 

I worked with Stacy, who was not only my catering contact, but really ended up being my wedding planner and keeping my wedding going. She went so above and beyond to make my wedding perfect, I really can't say enough nice things about her. 

 

Rachel Marie 

 

Amazing! Kacie Stover is the best! She was like my wedding planner she was so amazing. She designed the setups of the rooms for both our plan A and plan B options, she responded to emails promptly and even over weekends, she came up with creative solutions to things, she was so easy to work with and the food tasted amazing and there was plenty of it for a reasonable price. We couldn't be happier that we chose Milo's and had Kacie for our wedding!

 

Megan, Knoxville, TN

 

Milo's Catering was delicious. Food, to me, was one of the most important things. People remember how good/bad/hot/cold their dinner was at a wedding. The staff was so responsive, open and flexible. I worked with both Kacie and Stacy and they were fantastic. We did family style dinner and plated the bride and groom. The food was hot and delicious. (One guest even convinced another it was from a celebrity chef --- keep in mind there was also alcohol.) I would recommend them to ANYONE! They can be flexible with budgets and work around what you want.

Milo's was so incredibly accommodating for us. We were working on a budget, and they worked with us to create a wonderful meal, without "skimping" on things that we wanted. The food was wonderful. Many people told us it was the best wedding food they had every had. They also provide a coordinator who will help set up and do last minute-preparations. Very professional. Overall, a WONDERFUL experience!

 

Libby & Mike 

 

We were very happy with our choice of Milo's for the catering for our wedding. They did a great job accommodating our need for an all Vegetarian menu and were able to give us lots of options. All our guests, vegetarian and non-vegetarian alike loved the food. Kacie, our planner was FANTASTIC! All of the servers and staff were very friendly and pleasant during our reception. Would highly recommend Milo's to any couple planning their wedding.

Stacy Terman of Milo's created an appealing, delicious, and stress-free wedding reception for our family! Milo's promised to be a full-service caterer- they were and more. Stacy and her crew were patient and impeccable in the set-up, serving, and clean up. Every detail was their concern and they followed through right down to packing everything up and leaving our venue spotless. Milo's has my thanks and a recommendation to anyone who will listen. The food was delicious and we are still hearing wonderful comments on both the food and your staff!

If we could give scores above a 5, we would. It was a pleasure working with this vendor. Total flexibility, professionalism and great food. Some highly critical guests thought that this was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. Would recommend to anyone.
 

Doug & Elena 

For my father, the food was the most important element of our wedding. We went to six tastings total and Milo's absolutely went above and beyond from the tasting through the wedding day. They were our last tasting appointment and we booked that day. We worked with Stacy through the entire process and she was great: responsive, friendly, and flexible with changing guest counts, etc. The food tasted the same, if not better, than it did during our tasting. Serving six people is a lot easier than serving 124, so that was amazing. It wasn't just the best wedding food, it was simply good food by any standard. So many guests came up and complimented us after. The servers were extremely friendly and professional. I understand that they really went above and beyond to help get the space set up also (due to some other vendors slacking). Just wonderful!
