Just read what our catering clients have to say about us. Our catering reviews tell why we’re the best caterer for you.

“Great for Catering”
My family of somewhere between 60 and 70 people frequently spends a week renting five houses at Sandbridge Beach, part of Virginia Beach. My night to cater the family dinner was last night and as I often do, I ordered the main part of the meal from a local caterer.

This year, I used Jake’s Smokehouse BBQ, and the results were superlative.
Kevin, the owner, personally handled my order and even though I changed the address several times as we changed our minds on where to serve the meal, and also changed the start time at the last minute, Kevin was unfailingly polite and helpful, taking my changes in stride. He arrived at the time I requested with the food I ordered. The food was delivered hot and everyone thought it was delicious (including the most critical of my relatives!)

Not only did Kevin deliver the order as promised, but he also offered to take the family group photo (with half a dozen cameras) which we were attempting when he arrived. Everyone praised the delicious dinner and many commented on how nice the “BBQ Guy” was. What more could I ask?”

I highly recommend Jake’s BBQ for catering at the beach. While I haven’t eaten at the restaurant, we all enjoyed the South Carolina Pulled Pork with Sweet Sauce, Macaroni Salad, Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, and Hush Puppies Party Package.

“Great selection of items and great BBQ!”
Loved the Carolina pulled pork, okra , and Cole slaw!! Great selection of BBQ items and tons of sides to choose from. Prices were great and service staff was Johnny on the spot!! Love this place, I will be returning and recommending again!”

“Best BBQ @ VA Beach ”
Great service, clean and inviting!! Try the brisket for a smoky, savory treat!! Pulled pork is wonderful too!!”

“Great food!”
Tasty, well-prepared food and great service. We fell into this place after a busy day at the beach and all really enjoyed it. My son and I had the BBQ pulled chicken and my husband had the brisket. They were both great. The sides were good too. The service was just right – attentive enough but not in your face.”

“Great BBQ”
I had the brisket, with the…correct me if I’m wrong…Porky Beans. Good stuff!! The waitress was very nice, and the BBQ was on point!! Will be back again for sure.”

“Amazing (:”
Every year we come to Virginia Beach we make it a goal to stop here! The food is amazing and the prices are a steal! Wish there was a place like this in Pittsburgh to get good BBQ.”

“Jake’s BBQ is by far the best in the region. I am very particular and have never been disappointed. Kevin, the owner, has done a fantastic job training his staff. Their fish dishes rival the best local seafood restaurants.”
