“Thank you for your help in planning my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding rehearsal dinner. The Southern Supper was delicious, and the portions were quite generous. I especially want you and the owners of Classic City Catering to know what a fantastic job your waitstaff did at our party. The waitstaff was attentive (without being intrusive), pleasant, and well-organized. A number of guest commented on just how wonderful the waitstaff was.”
