Here's what our customers have to say...

“Planning for a wedding can be super stressful with the many decisions that need to be made. However, choosing Odette’s as our caterer took all the stress out of the rehersal dinner and wedding reception! All night our guests kept asking us who we had hired because the food was amazing! Beautiful presentation and mouth-watering flavor!”

“It was my husband’s and my 20th anniversary. Typically, we go out for drinks and a nice dinner, but when I heard about Krista’s catering service from a friend, I thought that it would be a pleasant change up from the usual. I’m so glad we decided to give her a call! Not only did she decorate our dining room and set a romantic tone, but the food was phenomenal. The quality was equal to, if not exceeding, any restaurant we could have gone to! I’ll definitely be calling her again!”

Odette's has catered our fundraising event two years in a row and done a fantastic job. We have hosted this school fundraiser for 11 years and never had so many compliments on the food. There was a variety of food beautifully presented and attended to in a professional and efficient manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Odette's Custom Catering for your special event.

On little more than a whim, I chose Odette's Custom Catering for a surprise birthday dinner party serving 25-30 guests. The entire experience with Krista and her crew was positive beyond expectations. Krista planned the menu, combining my preferences with her suggestions; many good cooks were among the guests and the question, "WHO made this food?!," was exclaimed throughout the evening.

The caterers graciously and competently performed the work, adapting to any challenges, such as minimal set-up time and an "as-is" house condition, which were necessary to keep the event a surprise. Krista's thoughtful attention to detail was much appreciated; two full dinner plates were quietly set aside because it was noticed that the hosts were too busy to eat with the guests.

From beginning to end, I was pleased and impressed with the culinary talent and professionalism of Odette's Custom Catering, and my husband and I are happy to provide a strong recommendation.

I had a caterer all planned out and menu prepared when he decided to cancel his catering for my event. I was devastated and didn't know what to do. I called Odette's Custom Catering, with 2 months to go, I was afraid that my day was ruined. I explained my situation and she instantly told me to breathe and she will help me have a perfect day. Not only did she cater a wonderful dinner and appetizers but she had another event that same day! Even though, at that time I was skeptical about that, she guided me to unimaginable ideas for my day. I feel as I owe her something than just a check and a thank you. You, Krista Odette made my husband, Erik and my day amazing. I loved the taco bar and chocolate fountain. Thank you!

I had a baby shower to prepare for and called Odette's Custom Catering. I absolutely loved the food and my friend even hired her for a Graduation. The food was fabulous and the presentation was out of this world. I could tell that everything was homemade and put together with love. Her staff was very friendly and very professional. I would recommend Odette's Custom Catering to anyone.

I had been searching for a Caterer for quite sometime and really didn't know where we wanted to get married. We are from a small town down in Howell, Mi. I was invited to my cousins wedding up in Beulah last August. I have to say, I loved the area and couldn't stop thinking about the food. We had BBQ Pork Tenderloin and Creamy Mushroom Pork as well as the best mashed potatoes I have ever had in my life. I didn't need any salt or pepper and yes, not even butter for those, what they called "Seasoned Whipped Potatoes". I made my mind up, that this is the place and the caterer that I want. I asked her if she could give me her information and that I wanted to have her cater my wedding. I called her the next day and booked. I was really stressed at how much all of this would cost, but it didn't really matter because I had the wedding of a lifetime and food that people are still talking about today. Hire Odette's Custom Catering, they are the Professionals.
