Chef On The Bay
Your Creative Dining Experience
"We all had an awesome time! The entire experience from beginning to end was so much more than I ever dreamed of! Chef Charlie is not only a very gifted chef, she is a kind and compassionate individual. From the setup and decoration of the table, where all tableware was provided, to the serving of the most amazing five course meal, to the cleanup of the entire thing (while the party was still going on with zero disruption) was Five Star! Scrubbing the floor as they excited after bidding their farewells was the icing on the cake. At the end, we loved and greatly appreciated how we both felt: Blessed!"

"Top notch service. I own a real estate agency here in Central Florida and have used Charlie several times, both as a personal and professional client. I've had in her and her staff in my own home to make family dinners, in addition to catering agency meetings and providing food for open houses."
"Chef On The Bay was recommended to me by my business partner, who's had Chef Charlie cater several of his executive board meetings. I needed someone to cater my Super Bowl party, consisting of about 60 friends, family members, and co-workers. Simply put... AMAZING. Charlie and her staff were able to make my home feel like a sports bar, cooking the food and serving us. She has earned a client for life!!!!"

"The level of service I receive from Chef Charlie at Chef On The Bay continues to impress me every time. My wife and I have had them cater several times at our home, and the feeling we get every time is no different than when we go out the 'fancy restaurants.' I would highly recommend Chef On The Bay!!!

"Chef Charlie was referred to me by a few of my friends. I must admit that I had no idea what I was getting in to and was somewhat skeptical. The moment Charlie started setting the table (with her own dishes), I was pleasantly surprised. The table settings looked like something you'd find at a wedding and the food and presentation were comparable to 5-Star restaurants I've been too."
"Thank you so much for such an incredible night. We couldn't have asked for a more complete and perfect way to celebrate my turning 30. You offer such a unique and personalized service which really allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves in our own home. Everything from the food to the service was impeccable and we will definitely be recommending you to our family and friends."

"Being a single mother with three children, it is very difficult to make homemade dinners, let alone healthy meals. I was told about Chef On The Bay and making the decision to call and have them cook for my kids and it was the best decision I have ever made. I have a daughter that has a gluten-free diet, and I was so impressed when I learned that they cook only with organic, locally grown vegetables and went out of their way to prepare a dish specifically for my daughter. For a single parent, Chef On The Bay can be a life saver!!!"

"We love Chef Charlie, and her staff is always so friendly and makes things roll so smoothly. It's such a blessing for the rare occasions we get to use her services and be pampered!! And the food is amazing!"

"What a great night! Food was amazing (as usual) and staff was great and very friendly and made our night so enjoyable! Not having to clean up after a big night like Thanksgiving was such a blessing!"

"The staff and service was excellent. Taco Bar was excellent! My Softball Team, Towson University, Maryland was blown away. The quality and abundance of our dinner was out of this world. Chef Gillespie and Kyle were ready to go from the moment we walked into our hotel.
COTB created a fresh, organic menu within our very tight budget as a traveling college team."

"We really enjoyed our time in Florida on our family reunion week and your wonderful two dinners greatly contributed to our enjoyment and ability to spend quality family time all together. Thank you and all your elves so very much for the delicious meals and the fun approach for entertaining the young ones. It all worked out perfectly."
~ Carr Family, Clearwater
"Thank you very much! We really enjoyed it and it made the day so much nicer not having to wait at a restaurant. Plus , the food was 10x better! So fresh! You guys went above and beyond."
~Emily, Lee University Softball
"Chef Charlie prepared a "Spinning" Salad for our 26th Anniversary dinner & Prime Rib plate. [If you] blind fold me, lead me into the room, and feed this to me, I would not know the difference of actually being in the original restaurant in Beverly Hills, Las Vegas or Dallas. Truly a FIVE STAR experience, courtesy of 'Chef Charlie.'"
