Kim and Ron are out of this world amazing. Beyond Expectation is exactly correct. I felt like they really cared about every detail of our wedding.  We live in Spartanburg and came to Charleston to get married. We used them in June for our wedding at Magnolias for food, bar and rentals and they were so detailed about eveything. I felt so at easy knowing they cared so much and were on top of every detail about everything. I spoke to Kim almost on a evey week basis.  The day of the wedding came and they made everything so perfect. The food was amazing (shrimp and grits, prime rib, chicken fingers for kid, and mash potatoe bar, and a smore bar) , the display was so elegant, and the bar was ran so amazing. Their staff made sure everything was great. they even kept the kids happy at the outdoor smore bar. Kim even made sure that we had a golf cart to take us around the venue to take pictures. she went out of her way to make sure everything was exactly the way i wanted.  I cant say enough about this company and how much they made our day everything we wanted and more.

Beyond Expectations was just that!! The food was delicious and the vegetable decorations were just the cutest things!
Working with the caterer prior to the wedding was so easy. I received emails in response to my questions within an hour. As things changed, they worked with me to meet my needs. They coordinated delivery of tables, tablecloths, and glassware. When we arrived from the church, everything was set up and beautiful! Thank you!!! More...

Ron and Kim by far, exceeded our expectations! No pun intended The food was amazing, great service, and they are a one stop shop for rentals, decor and wedding planning! They do it all! Ron is an amazing chef and Kim is one of the most prompt people (and patient!) when it comes to answering emails and making requests happen! We were very demanding with price checks and break downs of different options and they never skipped a beat. Everyone was so impressed with the food and we are still receiving compliments a few days later. Thank you so much for making one of the most important days of our lives so memorable and wonderful. Your team was one of the biggest highlights of the night! If your looking for a caterer... stop here. You will not be disappointed with their service, staff, and pricing. Thank you Ron and Kim!!!

Beyond Expectations exceeded our expectations! We used them for our daughter's wedding and we were impressed with the food and presentation.  Ron, Kim and staff were professional and caring.  Throughout the year and a half of planning, they were great, helping with food choices as well as helping plan my daughter's big day!  Their responses were quickly returned and all questions asked were taken care of.  Highly, highly recommend them!

Beyond Expectations absolutely lived up to their name. Ron and Kim are awesome and incredibly knowledgeable about everything not just the catering side. We shopped around for a couple weeks but once we met Ron and he showed us his capabilities - we were hooked! The tasting was awesome and he was able to show off his artistic side, as well. Ron can carve fruits and vegetables into the shapes of flowers and fish. Along with that the man does ice sculptures!! Another thing we really liked was that his entire wait staff were BE employees not temps. He assigned a captain to my bride and I - which was much needed. Lastly, Ron and Kim were very patient and accomodating to last minute changes. We changed our reception setup a week before and our ceremony setup 2 days prior. Oh and btw they handle all the event rentals and set up. They rock and we would highly reccomend them. More...

Beyond Expectations is a name fit for this business. So much more than just a catering service. Just a great service all around, and from beginning to end. From the very start, even though we were on a small budget, we felt as though we were Chef Ron's most important clients. Emails, phone calls, and personal meetings just added to the amazing service of this company. Chef Ron personally met us at our venue on a Saturday to show us exactly how it would be set up. He was at the reception himself, and at no point did we feel like a single corner was cut. The entire staff did a great job. Like I said we were low budget and could not afford a wedding planner, it did not matter Chef Ron took care of everything, from linens, to the display themselves. We talked to several other caterers but no one else had the professional feel that we got from Ron. Thank you again for making our day special. Oh and Chef Ron knew I was military and added some extras, he is a vet himself and takes care of those who served. More...

Ron and Kim were an absolute joy to work with. I do not live in Charleston so I had to communicate with them via phone and email. I never had to wait; they always responded in a timely manner and were so helpful with all the questions I had. The food was incredible and their professionalism went above and beyond. They were truly amazing and I highly recommend them! More...

Beyond Expectations catered my wedding. We did a buffet. The food was delicious. We received several compliments. The staff was extremely nice. We even had our own waitress to serve the Bride and Groom. We always had a drink and they made our plates for us. The only complaint that we had was that perhaps the food was taken up too soon. Some of the guests said that they would have liked to have seconds, but when they looked up, they were already putting the food away. More...

Ron and Kim and their team were excellent.  The food was great, the service also.Working long-distance (a rehearsal dinner with an out-of-town groom) was no challenge at all.  They had worked the venue before, many times, and the evening was flawless.  There were many more servers than I expected, and I got what I wanted -- the ability to relax and enjoy a lovely event for our two families.  Ron and Kim are a blessing!

Ron and Kim take catering to the next level. Their food and presentation is wonderful and they were so easy to work with and we had so much fun planning our wedding. They handle everything so you are only dealing with one vendor for your catering and set up. They use only top notch rental vendors and everything was flawless the day of the wedding. The food was amazing and Ron is an extremely talented Chef. Their staff was very professional. We could not have been happier! More...

The team at Beyond Expectations was just that! Nothing short of amazing. My husband and I had an extraordinarily low budget but Beyond Expectations provided such a great value and exceptional service that we felt like royalty and our guests were able to enjoy a full bar all nigt. Whenever I had a question (which was often!) or needed to make a payment they made themselves available....right up to the hours before the wedding. More...

Beyond Expectations did a wonderful job catering our wedding! Ron and Kim were both so nice and kind throughout the wedding planning process. The lowcountry style food was extraordinary. The catering staff took very good care of us. Our drink orders were taken after we entered the reception and we had plates of food waiting on us after taking photos. Ron and his team do an excellent job with details. They created beautiful displays with fruit, cheese and vegetables. They also sent us home with a basket of food, cake and treats! I can not thank them enough! What a wonderful evening! More...

Beyond Expectations Catering provided food and bar service for my daughter and son-in-law's June 8th wedding at Magnolia Plantation & Gardens. In addition to delighting in the culinary talents of Chef Ron, the service was extraordinary! First, it was so helpful to have all our supplies (tables, chairs, linens, etc.) Coordinated by his staff, especially since we live out of state. Then, on the day of the wedding, not only was the food unbelievably delicious and prepared to perfection, but the display of carved fruits and vegetables enhanced thd presentation. After the ceremony, Ron's staff made sure the bride & groom always had food and drink available while taking their bridal party photos and were served their meals when they came into the reception, even though it was a buffet. Lastly, my daughter and her husband truly appreciated the generous basket they received after the wedding that included all the wonderful dishes served throughout the wedding plus champagne & their cake. I would HIGHLY recommend Beyond Expectations Catering for a wedding or any other special occasion! More...

I got so many RAVE reviews on our food at the wedding! I loved everything they made. They were so easy to work with. They came up with a GREAT menu in our budget and everybody loved the food! Kim was lightning fast with her email response times and she addressed every question immediately. Ron was extemely attentive to our wants and created a wonderfully diverse Italian buffet menu to accommodate all kinds of diets. Their staff made sure we had plates brought to us while everybody else was up getting their food so we actually got to eat! They even put together a basket for us to take back to our hotel that night with champagne, plates of food from the buffet and the appetizers, slices of our cake, and a giant chocolate bar. I'm so happy we made the decision to use Beyond Expectations. They truly lived up to their name. More...

We first chose Beyond Expectations because they were reasonably priced - especially for an expensive city like Charleston, and provided full service catering & rentals (they place your rental order for you, and provide bar services, so everything is taken care of in one place. Very big selling point)! But we had no idea what a value we were getting at first.

Kim was wonderful to work with. We had some last minute guest list changes, and she was quick and easy to deal with and took care of everything. She was responsive throughout the planning process and never left me hanging waiting for answers.

Ron was incredible. He met with us to discuss the menu and had some great suggestions and a wide variety of food. He also walked through the site with me and told me exactly how everything would be laid out and pointed out what worked best from what he had seen in the past. He and his team took care of everything the day of the wedding - for the ceremony and the reception.

The food was simply the best. I ate literally every bite on my plate (and maybe a few from my husbands)! Several guests said it was absolutely the best food they had at a wedding - ever. And I have a large family so we have had a LOT of weddings. Not only was the food delicious, but the presentation was wonderful. He made some beautiful food sculptures and we had an ice sculpture as well.

Last but not least his staff was incredible and thoughtful. Before we were whisked off during the cocktail hour for pictures they made sure we both had some appetizers and drinks. They made plates for us at the reception and brought drinks - I never had to go to the bar once all night. I was able to fully concentrate on enjoying the wedding and mingling with guests.

We could not be more pleased with the stellar service and delicious food! Thank you so much to Ron, Kim and the rest of Beyond Expectations!!

I can't say enough good things about Ron Murray and his business! I wanted to hire him 1st before I even had any of my other Vendors booked! !! Ron catered my sisters wedding years back, not only did he remember my sister and her husband, but the food from their wedding still has people who attended talking! Ron didn't disappoint for Ian and I's wedding! The decorations he made OUT OF THE FOOD was incredible, the taste of everything was AMAZING, he was responsive to any and all questions, emails, and phone calls, and he made sure that he catered what Ian and I truly wanted (within budget). And that's the other thing, you give him a budget and he will stay in it unless you tell him to add on. Thank you so much Ron and all of your staff for making Ian and I'd wedding become a Dream Come True! More...
