Chef Mike and Deb are absolutely amazing! They catered our wedding on 10/7/17, appetizers, dinner and dessert!! From having a blast at the taste test, to countless timely emails and phone calls between Deb and I to make it all come together, it was a great experience working with Elite!
Anything I asked or suggested they were open to! Even things not even listed on their menu, was never even an issue! Their guacamole is delicious such good flavor, the rosemary chicken was so tender and juicy, the chili bar was a hit and all of the mix ins so great! Our apple cider donuts were to die for, my guests still rave about them and so many people asked where they can get more!
If anyone wants to know anything more about my experience feel free to contact me! I could go on for days I highly recommend setting up an appointment to meet up with Mike and Deb and get tastin' the food for your next event!! ~Ashley B. 11/7/17
Mile Bluff Medical Center's Provider Social at the Burr Oak Winery on Oct 23, 2017 was a great success. Chef Mike was wonderful and stayed well beyond the call of duty to help clean up and the food was absolutely delicious (esp. the stuffed mushroom caps!) The process of working with Elite Catering from start to finish was a breeze! Thanks again! ~Christine F. 11/13/17
THANK YOU CHEF MIKE, DEBBIE, HEATHER, AND ALL STAFF!! We were planning a rehearsal dinner at Devil's Lake for our son's June wedding and we live in Texas! Not ever being to Baraboo and not knowing any caterers, we called a local church to get some input. The pastor's wife recommended Elite Catering and we are so thankful she did! The food and service was wonderful and Chef Mike and his staff did a fantastic job feeding and accommodating well over 80 people. He and staff stayed through the whole meal and did not leave until he knew everyone had been taken care of and their bellies were full of the delicious food!...And it really was delicious, everybody said so! Thank you for providing a great meal, and enjoying doing it. Bless you all!! ~Carolyn A. 7/25/17
We had a fantastic experience with Chef Mike. Food and service were outstanding. You can tell when a person takes pride in what they do and love their work and genuinely wants the customer happy and Chef Mike embodies that. Highly recommend Elite Catering for any event.
~Tim B. 4/26/17
Great meeting you in person this weekend!
You and your team did a phenomenal job… you were a pleasure to work with – both in planning and execution for our event. The food was great – and the service was even better. Appreciate you and your team helping with our event!

Just wanted to say thank you for providing a delicious meal for our wedding reception in August. We had a lot of compliments and are very happy with all of the effort you all put into the entire process. Keep up the great work! ~Bryan & Rebecca S. 10/18/16
Excellent food with excellent presentation! I hired Elite Catering to help with a special event meeting. Chef Mike sat and worked with me to develop a plan and menu that was specific to the needs of the cattlemen's group we were hosting. We had asked Chef Mike to do a beef preparation demo as well as cater our meal. Our guests not only got FANTASTIC DELICIOUS food that ALL our guests RAVED about, but also got a very informative, educational and entertaining presentation. It was almost like having a comedian that cooks. OUR GUESTS LOVED IT! This was a day long event and I think that for most people, the food and the cooking demo were our guests favorite part of the day. We could not have been happier with how Chef Mike helped us out...Worth every penny! ~Jill M. 10/4/16 *Five Stars, Google Review
We attended a wedding where Elite was catering. It was the best wedding food we have ever had. Everything was so delicious and obviously hand made! SO GOOD!! ~Jerianne B. 10/3/16 *Five Stars, Google Review

Deb & Mike, thank you so much for your hard work and your willingness to work with me! We could not have been happier with the food and your service! We received many, many comments and compliments on the food, which was exactly what I hoped for! Several people said it was probably the best wedding food they had ever had. Many mentioned the salad & corn specifically. So, thank you so very much for your effort to make our day such a success! ~Gratefully, Sue & Chuck T. 9/2016
Scott and I would like to say thank you, the food was so good. Throughout the night Scott and I heard how wonderful the food was, and it was so great that you came around and asked how everything was. Thank you for making our night so special. ~Alyssa & Scot B. 9/2016

I drove here (Baraboo) from the Chicago area my first time. The area was absolutely amazing and to top it off we ran into the most amazing fish fry and dinner at Devil's Lake (by Elite Catering). The best day ever with my daughter Mia! Thank you! ~Patrick & Mia, IL 7/1/16
Just wanted to thank you for the great job today. Everyone was well fed and very pleased with the meal. I am sure we will be doing more business in the future. Thanks again. ~Ellen, Lakeside Foods Inc., Reedsburg WI 6/30/16

Breakfast was fabulous!!!! One of the best we've ever received from a caterer and the service was stupendous!!! Thank you so much!!! We're planning on doing it again next year!! ~Gary Block Tours, MN 6/15/16
Mike and Deb of Elite Catering created the best, tastiest, picnic type food for my dad's celebration of life party. We served 200 people. They worked closely with me on the selection and were profession al in every way. Thank you! Use them you will be delighted. Oh yeh and it's a family run business with in house made baked goods and entrees. ~Kay C. 6/15/16
Wanted to say thank you so much for providing such an excellent display of food for our occasion. The guests truly enjoyed their time and many positive comments on the service were received regarding the catering. ~K. Fry
Thank you again, everything was delicious!!!!!!! ~Ted C.
(taken from Yelp.com) My friends hired Elite Catering for their wedding, and while I can't speak to dealing with them personally, I can say I was very impressed by their food. The fish fry was one of the best I've had, better than most restaurants. Everyone raved about the chicken as well. They had a great selection on the cheese tray, and the fruit was very fresh. Service was prompt, and dirty plates were cleared right away. I wasn't too crazy about the cake, which was a bit dry - otherwise I would have given 5 stars. We talked to the owners a bit, and they seemed very friendly. ~Rena A. ...(Reply from Deb, owner of Elite Catering) 7/24/2014 Rena, Thank you for your wonderful comments. We are always happy to hear feedback from our customers. With regards to the cake, we stopped making wedding cakes in October of 2013, so that must have been made by another bakery or person.
Just wanted you to know how much I appreciated your expert catering job. You were excellent. In addition to that, thank you so much for cutting and serving the cake. You were special. Everyone commented on the excellent food and service. Thanks again. ~Nora J. B.
Thank you all again for helping us with Tim's grad party. Everything was great! I can see the value in your service and it is all much appreciated. I still can't believe all the cake and apple bars were eaten! My sister in law said the apple bars were the best dessert she has ever had. I don't think we can adequately express our gratitude to you all. Thank you so much! ~T. Warren
We had a WONDERFUL time at the fish fry! Everything was totally delicious!! We'll be back often! ~Kathy B.
Our 1st Devils Lake Friday night fish fry of the season. Excellent as always!!! ~ Sara W. P.
I want to thank you for all that you did to make our dinner on the train a very memorable experience. All of our members had a wonderful time and they were exceptionally pleased with the food. I had the chicken wellington and it was delightful. But the beef also looked amazingly tempting. Thank you again for helping to create an unforgettable evening that was the highlight of our weekend. ~Robert E.A.P.
Everyone I spoke with expressed their compliments to Mike and the crew for the high quality of the food, the efficiency of the food service arrangements and the cordiality of the servers.

I would like to thank you and your staff for doing an outstanding job on our recent upper dells boat tour. The coordination with Stephanie and her crew was top notch and your staff was a pleasure to work with. Many attendees commented on the good snacks, food and the pleasant people preparing and serving it. Thank you for a job well done. At the conclusion of our conference everyone asked that we repeat the boat trip next year. If we do I will certainly contact you for some yummy catering ideas. ~ Best regards, Jeff

I just wanted to write a quick thank you to you! Today's event was fabulous and while I was told we had food left over (and nobody brought be back any samples!) those who did eat, said it was delicious. So thank you very much for all your effort and making our event elegant and fabulous! If we ever need to hire a caterer in that neck of the woods again, you'll be the first I call. ~Amanda M.
We would like to thank you for the impeccable service we received. The food was fantastic - everyone raved about it. Everyone was always courteous & professional, even with our last minute booking and schedule changes! Thank you for helping to make our wedding day perfect! ~Curtis & Stacee R.
Comment received via FaceBook/Fans of Devil's Lake State Park in Wisconsin...This fish fry was awesome! And perfect for those of us who enjoy a break from cooking while camping. I'm sure my mom would have loved having this option back in the 80's and 90's when we were camping for 2 weeks at a time in Quartzite. Great idea! ~T. Smith
Awesome food today. Excellent service! I highly recommend them!!! ~Peggy K.
Boy if I were in Baraboo...the Friday Night Devil's Lake fish fry sounds like the place to be...was very pleased with Elite's job on son's wedding! ~Sunday H.
Everyone said it was "excellent". I definitely will be ordering again. ~Fran B.
I want to let y'all know that dinner was amazing and that if we come back to the dells and I am in charge of banquet that we will be using y'all again. Thank you for catering to us and thanks again it was really an amazing dinner! ~Joshua C.
Where to begin? Working with you over the process of planning our wedding was a true pleasure. The comments we received regarding the food and service were top notch. It was the best food we've ever had at a catered event! Our guests thought so too! We've been recommending you to our friends! Thank you! ~ Sam & Caitlyn B.
We put our daughters wedding together at the last minute. Elite Catering made the whole process so easy, from knowing how many people to plan for, and how much to choose. The entire staff is friendly and professional. The flavors of the foods were phenomenal. And the presentation was bar none to anything I have been to. It has been a year and people still remember how awesome the food was at her wedding. I will use and recommend Elite Catering for any event large or small. ~Al & Rhonda A.
Thirty years of working in a restaurant had not prepared me for the best and hottest food I ever tasted in my life. The staff was a dream come true. Thanks for making this day special. We are all still talking about this event. ~Audrey G.
Dear Deb, Our birthday party for our mother was made more special because of Elite Catering. We were very happy with the way things were handled by you. The people that brought the food were very efficient and had a beautiful buffet set up in minutes. The presentation was wonderful with lots of nice touches. The food was outstanding, with hot food hot and cold foods cold, and enough for the big eaters to get their fill. The hot beef sandwiches were exceptionally good. Cleanup was handled with very little fuss. We hardly knew they were there. Thank you. ~Sandy S.
Thank you! Thank you! Everything was wonderful...well received...appreciated...and many compliments came in. We'll certainly keep you in mind for the future...Continued success. ~Char O.
Just wanted to give you complements on the food last Thursday and Friday in Baraboo. It was EXCELLENT! Everyone loved it. You guys do a great job...Thanks very much. ~Mike G.
Just a note to thank you for catering our present opening brunch after the wedding. The food was superb and the service was excellent. We even loved the chocolate covered bacon! We will definitely be recommending you to our friends. Thanks Again. ~Andrea & Rod
Thanks so much for sharing your cooking knowledge with the Master Gardeners. As always, it was a lot of fun. The food was EXCELLENT! I noticed several ladies making notes, so I am sure they will be experimenting at home with creating their own tasty dishes! I can't wait to try it myself. ~Doreen
Thank you sincerely for all your time, efforts and contributions last month. We and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the entrees, sides and dessert. After a long day of preparation and presentation it was a pleasure to sit and dine on fresh, homemade, and delicious meals. ~ Elizabeth & Donovan
Thanks so much for the great food. We really appreciate the hard work! ~ Sue G.

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated you catering our wedding! Everyone commented on the delicious food and the presentation was beautiful. ~Brad and Meridee S.
We sincerely want to thank you for catering our wedding. To say that you did an amazing job is truy an understatement. Not only was the food extraordinary (people are still talking about it), your staff was top notch and the attention to detail was superb. Our guests commented not only on the delicious food but by the graciousness of the chef to go around and make sure everything was okay. By booking your services I knew I had nothing to worry about and you didn't let me down - if anything you far exceeded my expectations and truly lived up to your name of Elite Catering. I never thought that working with a caterer would be such a dream. ~Ryan & Hope K.
Thank you so much! What a great, fun party & excellent food! ~The Worths

It was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, and just the right variety. The staff did a great job - everything was efficiently set up and removed and we even had just the perfect amount. I heard nothing but raves abouth the food. It truly was an important part of what I considered a very successful wedding and I appreciate all your efforts. ~ D. Bartz
My husband and I are always glad to attend a function catered by Elite. When we pull up to an event and see the Elite Catering van we get excited. The variety, presentation, and especially flavor is always excellent; I just wish we had more occasions to use a caterer. ~Darlene R.
Thanks for another great meal! The food and your service were superb! ~Julie and Philippe; Wollersheim Winery
If you are looking for a great caterer, Elite catering can do the job, big or small. We've had them do everything from this small tailgate lunch to our larger holiday party and were equally satisfied with both venues. Thank you Elite Catering! ~HPS Hammond Power Solutions, Inc.
