Olympia Catering & Events

We’re a full-service catering company offering custom menus, fresh on-site cooking, and attentive professional staff. We work at many different locations in the Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota, and Lakeland areas, including ballrooms, garden clubs, farms, private estates, and more. We also manage all of the events at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg and Diehl Farms in Southeast Hillsborough County.

What We Offer:

Selecting your catering menu:
When potential clients contact us, we respond with our full list of menu items as well as some example menus. These example menus can be customized, or we can make something from scratch using a unique combination of the vast array of options we offer. We are happy to make suggestions and work with clients to develop a menu that fits their style, budget, and tastes!

What couples should know about planning a tasting with Olympia Catering:
Our tasting process is centered around providing our clients with the most enjoyable experience possible. For that reason, we always create a proposal prior to inviting clients to our tasting room. That way, couples are able to select a menu and see real numbers before they meet with us. If our proposal doesn’t work with their style or budget, we can tweak it until it does. The point of this process is to ensure clients will be tasting food that is enticing for them, and also works within their budget.

Additionally, all tastings at Olympia are private – so you can turn your planning experience into a lunch or dinner date!

Our Personality Is:

We’re friendly, passionate, and excited to work with new clients. We are event experts and take each client’s event seriously – because of our experience we always advise on what has and has not worked. We’re always up to the challenge for new locations and new styles of service, and we plan far in advance to make sure we’re prepared.

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

We love working with clients, putting together their perfect menu, and producing their wedding beyond their dreams. We strive for our clients to have a positive planning experience with a custom tasting and we plan all of the logistics in advance so on the wedding day the couple and family are worry-free. The best feeling is to see them smiling, relaxed, and enjoying themselves at their wedding, just as it should be.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

Our food is cooked fresh on-site at each event to provide the best meal for your guests. We have some amazing tried and true recipes that clients rave about, but we’re also always creating new, trendy recipes for clients with a creative palette.

Our Pricing:

Menu prices start at $35.00 per person.

Christmas Themed Winter Wedding Reception Decor Inspiration

Black and Gold New Year’s Eve St. Pete Wedding | NOVA 535

When choosing our wedding menu, it was important that we had opportunities to feed our guests multiple times throughout the evening. Instead of focusing on one main dinner, we looked for a caterer who would allow us to serve hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour and then also later on in the evening, when the drinks were flowing and everybody was dancing. All of the food was amazing, and our guests kept commenting about how delicious it was.

Olympia Catering came highly recommended. The food was delicious at the tasting but was even better at our actual wedding. The staff was friendly and efficient and a pleasure to be around. We would recommend Olympia Catering to anyone getting married in the Tampa Bay area.

Moody, Vintage Downtown Lakeland Wedding

We went with Olympia Catering because our tasting experience was fantastic, and we had such diverse options to pick from. Mojo pork and mashed potatoes are one of our favorite combos, and theirs was killer! We also had a stuffed chicken dish which everyone raved about.

The service was spectacular. I would recommend them over and over again to anyone looking for good food and great service. They treated not only my husband and me with extreme attentiveness and care but all of our guests as well. Everyone got food quickly when it was time to eat, and plates were cleared almost instantly when a guest finished with their meal. One of the staff members ensured my husband and I received food and drinks during cocktail hour and also packed up food and had it in our room for the end of the night should we find ourselves hungry.

Elegant Pink and Green Thonotosassa Wedding | Mision Lago Estate

Our menu inspiration was something that had a little bit of everything for everyone. My husband wanted a meal that was filling and full of flavor, and my family used Olympia Catering over 10 years ago, so when we went to the tasting, we were very happy to see that they were still just as good, if not better.

They were extremely easy to work with, accommodating, and had an abundance of options to choose from. We were also able to rent linen, glasses, etc. from them as well. Our food was one of our favorite parts of the wedding.

Sage Green and Grey Rustic Dade City Wedding | Covington Farm

We looked for a catering company that had a lot of options to choose from since we had a lot of guests with dietary restrictions. We chose to have a pasta bar along with a buffet that provided guests with a beef or chicken option.

Olympia Catering had the most delicious food we tried, and there were so many options, even for guests with dietary restrictions. The catering planning was very easy, and they were very accommodating to making changes to the menu. They also provided a lot of other services if we needed them. Olympia had a personal attendant for me and my husband, so we were able to enjoy our meal and drinks without having to leave our table during dinner.

Intimate, Tropical Davis Islands Backyard Wedding

The main thought behind the menu was to keep guests mingling throughout the reception. Different food stations were set up to give guests an array of items to choose from. Since the couple decided to forgo certain traditional aspects like introductions and a bouquet toss, the guests were free to mingle and visit different stations at their leisure.

Olympia Catering created an exciting, trendy menu inspired by comfort foods that the bride and groom and their guests raved about. Each station provided guests with a small plate portion, giving them the option to hang around one of the lounge-style areas or take a seat at a traditional dining space. The intention was to give guests the freedom to move about the space as they wished, and an array of small plate stations was a perfect choice!

Wes and I have very different palates, so I was looking for a caterer that could accommodate us both.

Olympia Catering met all of our wants and needs in a caterer! We didn’t have a specific inspiration, and we just thought their food tasted great! We actually got to eat on our wedding day, which was exciting, as I was fully prepared not to, and it was absolutely delicious! Everyone was very happy with the food.
