Darius M.

I had an order in my queue and went to double check to see if the order was correct 2 days before the event and realized there was a warning stating the business is not open during this time. it was for a breakfast order and i am unsure why they sell breakfast but were not open during breakfast hours. May have been a system glitch. maybe someone can respond to this rating to let me know what went wrong. Their lunch and dinner food is great. Also, their bartenders are wonderful.

Jaime K.

I ordered the Cold Lunch Tray for 10 for two small meetings in a row. The sandwich tray included a very wide and interesting variety of sandwiches on different types of breads; delicious and nicely served. This included an attractive and delicious large garden salad, bottles of water, plus a small tray of scrumptious brownies and cookies. When Mara delivered the order, she smiled and said very pleasantly that she is sure we will order from them again. She is right! Thank you. Bev Stiver, JHTV

Chesapeake Food Works is one of my go to caterers. Always great service and food.

Christy S.

always courteous and on time great food, but a little pricey for our budget

Diane S.

Food was delivered on time, and the service was great. The food was delicious as well. We ordered the baked potato bar for an office lunch and everyone loved it. We'll definitely be ordering from them again!

Gail M. M.

I purchased the Fruit & Cheese platter and the Middle Eastern Display. The fruit was perfect! The blue cheese was very strong, but that's how we like it. The cheese was under the fruit, so not a very good way to display it--it should have been more spread out on a larger platter. I don't know if anyone even saw the gouda--it was too hidden. The Middle Eastern Display--hummus was delicious; taboule was not like I'm used to, but still good; the olive feta spread was a huge disappointment--no one could see or taste the feta, it was not spreadable--it was chopped olives, it was too dry, and way too spicy. The pita points were awesome!

Kimberly B.

I love Chesapeake Food Works... they are always on time, their food is excellent!!!!

Great company, everything was perfect. Our team was not in the office at the time of delivery, they managed to secure the order in the office with ease and didn't panic. Very impressive. We will definitely use them again. Thank you Chesapeake Food Works!

Cat C.

I ordered a few Thanksgiving basics (turkey, ham, etc.) for our annual potluck in 2016. As my company is highly diverse, I always need good vegetarian options and CFW did not let me down! With a vegetarian lasagna and stuffed mushrooms, everyone was happy! I purposely over-ordered so there would be plenty of leftovers the following day. A definite catering success!

Deborah C.

Chesapeake Food Works did an excellent job. I ordered the jambalaya, and string beans with onions it was excellent!!!! I will be ordering from Chesapeake Food Works again. The delivery person also set up the food which was extremely nice and she was a very,very nice person.

Thank you

The corn and bean salad was awful. It has the weirdest taste. The potato salad was okay. My team loved the lemon tilapia fish.

Chesapeake Food Works delivered on a miserable Saturday afternoon for associates working overtime. Their sandwich platters were beautiful and super fresh. There were hardly any leftovers so that means they liked it. :-)

Tabitha B.

We have had great experiences with Chesapeake for years. They are great.

Cassandra N.

I use Chesapeake Food Works all the time and they are always wonderful. Not only are they affordable and accomodating, but their food is delicious (especially their chicken salad wraps!). They have also done full-service catering events for us and I have never had a complaint about their food or their service. I highly recommend them for any of your catering needs.

Dorja M.

Great food, packaged well, on-time and friendly delivery. Will order again!

Renada C.

Always on time and desserts were very good!

1/7/16: UPDATE
This vendor has twice declined the requested delivery time and suggested a new time 60 -90 minutes outside of my company's lunch hour. The food they serve is great however, they seem to be having staffing and/or time management issues which call into question their reliability. Unfortunately, for this reason, I can no longer highly recommend them.

Have worked with this vendor about 4 times now and they consistently deliver high-level service. They are always on time, professional and the food gets rave reviews. This last order was for the chicken marsala and I received positive feedback on the selection and quality. The pricing is budget-friendly and I have yet to find anything missing from the order.

Bertica C.

Chesapeake is a reliable caterer. We have been using them for months between our breakfast and lunch meetings and everyone loves them!

Nicol O. C.

Amanda W.

The food was amazing and everything was set up beautifully! Will definitely use again!!

Marcinda F.

They did a great job with set up. Were on time and the food was great!!

Ashley J.

CFW catered our department's end of year party and the food was all very tasty and presented beautifully! They even provided linens, which we couldn't get otherwise. Amy and her partner did an awesome job setting up in more than enough time to have our guests served and seated in time for the show (especially considering that she's 8 months pregnant!). The only drawback is that I would've requested additional serving staff because food goes so quickly (and not necessarily to those who should get it - i.e., kids, vegetarians/vegans, etc), but from what I saw, everyone was fed and pleased. I'll be receiving my 2nd food order from them today! :)

Aleatha J.

I use Chesapeake often, but on 12/10 the food wasn't good. The host of the meeting that the food was for asked me not to ever order from them again. There was a person in the meeting who didn't eat at all.

Deborah S.

Nice sandwich display. Good packed sandwiches. Great pricing.

Robin B.

I have used them before downtown for crab cake sandwich boxed lunches, which are great. Here in Owings Mills they were late arriving and dessert tray was disappointing.

Laura D.

They are THE BEST. I cannot recommend Chesapeake Food Works strongly enough, and opt for their amazing selections at every opportunity I have to order on behalf of my constituents. Whether it's a small meeting breakfast, large reception, or themed menu, they've never failed to deliver results beyond expectation. Looking forward to the next time!

Adama K.

Chesapeake Food Works certainly stood by the meaning of exceptional service. The food presentation was simply beautiful and delicious. The delivery lady was extremely professional and took pride in setting up and displaying the food in a beautiful arrangement.

Tonya R.

Food was delicious. Ordered the crab cake dinner with chicken marsala, tossed salad, rolls and cookie/brownie tray. Everything was fresh, tasty, seasoned well and looked appealing. I can't wait to our next event to try Chesapeake Food Works again. Driver was extremely pleasant and made sure everything was set up to my liking.

Jessica W.

Always on time and food quality is great. Friendly as well.........which is nice.
