"We had the pleasure of having Shore Side cater our wedding a few weeks ago. Working with Amanda was a dream from start to finish. While planning my wedding and the catering services, she was always easy to get ahold of, quickly got back to me and was so pleasant to work with. The food was fantastic, and they customized our menu to work perfectly with so much flexibility for us and our 180+ guests and vendors. The staff was sure to bring my husband and I food all night because they knew we wouldn’t have gotten a chance to eat otherwise (typical bride and groom behavior) and it was so appreciated! Everything went so smoothly and they took care of us so well! Will absolutely recommend them to anyone and will be happy to use their services again in the future. Thank you so much Amanda, EJ and Shore Side team!!"- from Nona & George Martin

"Amanda and her team are awesome! We had our outdoor wedding in our Cape May Point rental house was well planned until a unnamed catering company was not responding to us after three in person meetings. We contacted Shore Side Catering two weeks before our wedding. We met with Amanda and she was very professional and made some excellent suggestions. Her team showed up on time and set up very quickly. At the end of our event they did an excellent job of cleaning up. The buffets they set up was delicious and plentiful. Amanda help make are wedding day perfect." 
-Thanks from Mike & Ginny

"Amanda and EJ did a great job catering our large family trip to Cape May. The food was delicious and abundant. We've used private chef/catering services on many family trips and this was one of our best experiences. Amanda was responsive to our calls and emails, and EJ prepared wonderful meals that we all enjoyed. Highly recommend using Shore Side Catering to eliminate the stress of meal prep when vacationing with a crowd."-Michael Kruzynski

"Amanda and Shore Side Catering went beyond expectations at my wedding in Cape May. Throughout the planning process, Amanda was constantly available and was an absolute pleasure to work with during a stressful time. She hosted my 35 person wedding in a Cape May Victorian beach home with passed hors d'oeuvres and a buffet dinner. Every single guest raved about the food and the personable and professional staff. The beef tenderloin with the demi glaze and the salmon with crab imperial were huge hits.

In addition to providing amazing food and service, Amanda and her team went above and beyond by washing dishes, clearing plates, and keeping the whole day running. My husband and I ad our families were completely thrilled how the food turned out and what an enormous help Shore Side wnas on a day where everyone was pitching in. Cannot say enough good things about Shore Side Catering!!!!" Kailie MacKerverican

"EJ and Amanda cooked and served a delicious dinner at our house for Maureen's 40th. The dishes were creative and served with a professional touch. They offer a great service for a special occasion right in your kitchen!" Joe Schnieder


"Thank you Shore Side Catering for everything you did to make our wedding such a success. E.J. and Amanda, far exceeded our expectations at every turn! The food was absolutely Delicious and the service impeccable. Our family and guests are still talking about the Wedding and the catering three months later! I also want to thank you both for making it so easy to coordinate an event like this from another state. It was hard to take it all on faith, given that we were making arrangements over the phone from GA, but as I've said repeatedly since the wedding; aside from marrying my wife, calling Shore Side Catering was the best and smartest decision I've made. You made it all so easy and our reception was flawless thanks to you. I would recommend your company to anyone! I honestly didn't realize how much goes into creating an event that you hope to have happy memories of for the rest of your life, or how easily a caterer can make or break your event. That being said, I know that if we ever plan another event in NJ, Shore Side Catering is the first call we will make. Thank you again for everything you did for us. God Bless you E.J. and Amanda and your business!" - Mr. and Mrs. Johan & Emily Rodriguez

"EJ, we are still talking about your food. It was amazing. I had the salmon and my kids said I need to learn what you did to it because they both loved it. The Pasta Primavera was one of the best I have ever had! Though I missed the Chicken Marsala, a number of people for Sunday Brunch along with my hubby raved about it! Amanda, words can not express how grateful my sister in law (Chris, Karen sister) and I are for all the help you gave us! I'm glad you put the flowers in because you did an amazing job with the bouquets! My daughter took hers home because she loved it do much! I wish you and EJ the best! I highly recommend your services!" Stasia J. Yates



"Amanda at Shore Side Catering did a fabulous job for me this past weekend. My "Girls Weekend" event was complete thanks to Amanda. The food, service, delivery was excellent. She certainly made my life easy to be able to visit with my girlfriends and not have to lift a finger. Chicken Marsala, Salmon was delicious. Even a boxed lunch delivered to the beach. Thank you Amanda and see you next year!" -Kathleen J. Banco Cosden

"We were very happy with our experience with Shore Side Catering. We had our son's wedding rehearsal dinner in a lovely home in Cape May catered by SSC. We never met Amanda just spoke over the phone...needless to say we were nervous. The night could not have turned out better. Amanda and EJ arrived was set up within 1/2 hour. The appetizers were amazing..the entrees were delicious. The guests were pleased. Amanda and EJ were excellent..setting up, serving and cleaning up. We would highly recommend this service and hope to use again!! Thanks for a great time!!" Ros Graham Allman

"Amanda and her team did an amazing job from the food to the set up and break down. It was so nice having them at our wedding. All the ladies were so sweet thank you again" -Desiree Caroline Szeliga McBall

"It was a great catering service. She did an amazing job. As a retired cook she did a great job and I would recommend her to everyone and her crew is the best" -Gwen Fox

Amanda, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did with my dads 90th birthday party. When we first starting chatting about this party you told me your goal was to make it as simple as possible on the people throwing the party. You were right! We all had so much fun because you took care of everything. The food was great! The mussels in red were a huge hit! With 3 chefs in the family we are not always easy to please but you and your chef were terrific! Thanks too for patiently handling my phone calls and emails. I will be sure to recommend Shore Side catering to anyone looking for a caterer. We will see you at my dads 100th birthday party! Many thanks, -Colleen Young O'Hara

"Shoreside Catering did a 17 person Bachelorette Dinner for my daughter in May and I cannot recommend them highly enough. We live in the Washington DC area, the girls were staying in a huge house in Cape May and everything was done over the phone. Asboutely everything was done beautifully from setting the table to the passed hors'doeurves to the seated dinner with courses, pouring the wine at dinner, serving dessert - everything! Not to mention that the girls LOVED the food. We offered a choice of entrees - a salmon with shrimp and champagne sauce and a stuffed chicken and girls loved both. They also raved about the passed appetizers - a bruchetta and a caprese sticks. Finally, I would also like to mention that Amanda, the co-owner got back to me right away all the time. As you can imagine having never met her and doing it all over the phone and I would not be there = lots of calls. I would give them a 10 out of 10 which I can't recall even having done before." -Linda Thompson Dean
