Clancy is a legend!! The friendliest, most helpful, supportive and professional man. He knows the industry inside out, and thats exactly what you want when looking for a caterer for your wedding. I knew Clancy through word of mouth recommendations. He has a big following on the Gold Coast, and anyone that has hired him or been to one of his catered events will know why. The food is always delicious and abundant. His staff are always friendly, well presented and professional. We ordered Clancy's canapés and feasting menu for our wedding...and we weren't disappointed. All the guests LOVED the really was a feast! He ensures there is an abundance and is happy to take care of vegan/vegetarian diets. In fact, nothing is a problem for him. I couldn't recommend him more highly. Thank you xx

Clancy was absolutely great from the first meeting we had with him, to the service he provided us on our big day. He gave us a great price and fulfilled every request we had. Clancy and his staff provided us with cannapes and a big buffet. His food was amazing! One of our guests is an executive chef and he loved the food. I would recommend Clancy's because of his expertise and wonderful service. Thank you Clancy! :)

We're still getting rave reviews from our guests on how good the food was at our wedding. Clancy's was amazing. We had to postpone our wedding due to COVID19 and Carol was so understanding with this and was willing to allow us to be as late as possible with the final numbers in the hope that border closures would be lifted. They really made the booking stress free and on the day Des and the team were friendly and looked after us with plenty of fingerfood at the garden party and with wonderful service during dinner. Absolutely no one went home hungry. The seared scallops and the roasted eye fillet were particular highlights

Catering by Clancy went above and beyond. Our guests were left wanting more food but could not squeeze anymore in! The food was delicious and there was so much of it too!! The staff were absolutely amazing. The meat was cooked to perfection and the salads were to die for! We had numerous guests contact us to let us know how great the food was. Thank you - The Thomas’

Catering by Clancy was recommended by our venue and after reading their reviews we decided to choose them as our wedding caterers. What a great choice that was!! There was SO much food and every item was cooked to perfection. The finger food for the garden party was beautifully presented and very tasty and the buffet mains for our reception were outstanding! We received so many compliments on the night and for the weeks after about how good the food was. The staff were amazing too. Super friendly and fun to be around. They also made sure our guests with dietary requirements were well taken care of. We seriously cannot rate them high enough! Thank you so much to Clancy and Carol and the team. You guys delivered an amazing food service! Danielle and Jeremy

Clancy and the team are simply outstanding! A clear passion for food was displayed and all of our guests were delighted with the amount, diversity and how delicious all of the food was. Clancy catered to all of our guest's dietary needs and did everything in his power to make our day a breeze - and at a fraction of the price of some other caterer's! The best example of his care I can think of is as follows: My sister was feeling ill on the day of our wedding and was out the back for some air. Clancy was so kind and offered everything he could from toast to cracker to drinks to help with the situation - she was so appreciative of the gestures. I could not recommend Clancy and the team enough, they were simply brilliant.

Carol and Clancy were absolutely FABULOUS! I cannot recommend them highly enough. Carol was a dream to deal with when making inquiries and doing all of the preparatory work. Carol responded to emails always in a timely fashion and with a great deal of detail. They really were so easy to deal with. Come the wedding day Clancy and his staff were simply perfect. Clancy was gorgeous and the food was absolutely PERFECT. We went with the wedding buffet and it suited our families and friends perfectly. All was great quality and there was ample (which was a key request from the groom). I cannot recommend Catering by Clancy highly enough.

Absolutely amazing. The finger food to start was fantastic, so much variety and and all so tasty. Our guests all commented on the quality and quantity. Some were so surprised there was a buffet to follow they had already eaten so much. The roast buffet was just as good and again so much food. Pork and beef was beautiful and the vegies and salad perfect. Clancy and all the staff were just so professional. Guests with dietary needs were taken care of individually and although we din't need it if children needed kids food that would have been looked after too. We originally booked with a different provider who went out of business 2 months before the wedding and we lost over $500 deposit but as it turns out I'm pretty sure we dodged a bullet because he hit the jackpot with Clancy. Seriously could give 10 stars if I

We used Catering by Clancy for our wedding in September this year and we were absolutely blown away with the service provided by Clancy and his team. The quality of the food was such a high standard and the professionalism of Clancy and his staff matched! For a wedding that had a lot of people with varying dietary requirements they were able to tailor our menu in a way that pleased absolutely everyone. All of our guests with dietary requirements commented on how Clancy and his staff were so attentive in ensuring they got their meals and were taken care of at all times. Every single guest has complimented us on how delicious all of the food was on the day, and we feel exactly the same! Carol and Clancy are amazing people and true professionals in their field. We would recommend them to anyone!! Thanks again, Marli and Mel

We got the buffet option for our wedding and wow was the food amazing!! The guests couldn’t stop raving about how delicious the food was including the canapés and the buffet. No one left hungry. My biggest regret is that I couldn’t fit in a second serving at the time. The staff were also professional and friendly. Thanks so much!

Amazing service and food! Could not fault at all - only downside was that I was too nervous to eat much so didnt get to enjoy as much as I could but the guests absolutely raved about the food and how great it was. Communication leading up to the wedding was awesome and any changes I wanted to make were easily accommodated for. Would highly recommend

Clancy, Carol and their staff on our wedding day were nothing short of 5 star. The food was absolutely amazing, huge variety and portions of food that kept all of our guests happy. No one could believe that we then had a sit down meal after the finger foods as they were so generous in variety, flavour and amount. I have had so many of our guests ask who did the catering and where are they located ! Thank you to all of the team at Catering by Clancy - our wedding day was amazing and you helped so much towards that. Helen & Scott

From the initial emails and calls with Carol, to the interactions with Clancy and staff on the wedding day, to walking into a spotless kitchen after the wedding, I can not fault a thing. The food was beyond anything I could have imagined. So many comments on the night about the quantity of canapés, the taste and variety, generous and delicious meals - everyone was happy. The way you all accomodated a fussy eater, last minute vegetarian request and catered for 2 little girls, was so full of care and ease, it felt like you were all part of the family. You seamlessly worked with our event timing and service was warm and professional and you could taste the joy in your food. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

OUTSTANDING ! Clancy and Carol are truly committed to providing good old fashioned Service and Quality. Clancy was a word of mouth recommendation and then from the moment I touched base with Clancy and Carol, we knew they were the ones to cater for us.

Catering by Clancy looked after my wedding canapés and buffet on the 1.9.18 and wow! The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and plentiful and they were perfectly on time with the timeline I provided. They even set up my plates and cutlery on the tables as requested! We had a few dietary requirements which they provided for us no hassles. They even provided different food for the children. From start to finish we had amazing services and we would highly recommend Clancy and his team to any future couples/event!

Carol and Clancy, these people are the most generousand outstanding Caterers we have ever met. Most helpful with anything we needed. We were in a very stressful time. 2 months before our wedding, our original Caterer 'Skibba Boys BBQ' pulled put on us at last minute, we were devostrated. Luckily Clancy and Carol came tonour rescure with so much honour and passion. They are lifesavers. They were happy to help in every way and their communications to and from was outstanding! I woulddefinitely recommend these amazing souls to do everyones wedding. Their food and services was the best that both my husband and and I, our guests, wedding party and wedding venue has ever seen. They made a big positve aspect on everyone and the whole of Iluka town. Most organised and prefessional service. Couldn't have asked for anyone else to cater for our wedding night. They were spectacular. They provided everything themselves and provided exactly what we were looking for...

We had so many guests comment on the quantity and quality of the food at our wedding. There were so many canapes and Clancy's wait staff made sure noone missed out including the bridal party. We had a buffet reception and Clancy was so flexible with changes to the menu and dietary requirements. Everything was delicious and everyone left so full. Clancy ensured everything went so smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Would highly recommend!

Delicious food at a very affordable price. We opted for the buffet option which included canapés. There was lots of choices and plenty of food. They catered for vegetarian and vegan guests, and cut up our wedding cake at no additional charge. Our guests raved about the variety of canapés and how delicious they were.

I cannot recommend Catering by Clancy enough! From communication in the months leading up to the day, to the quality of the food and service, they were absolutely brilliant. Organising catering and bar service for a wedding for 155 people from abroad was made so easy with their help and I cannot thank them enough for playing a part in making our day so perfect. Plus, all of our guests raved about the food! Thank you so much Clancy and Carol!

Wow, these guys are fantastic. I was given their name from out local TAFE as they have used them, and the hospitality people there, they gave them rave revues. From my initial email enquiry and subsequent phone conversation prior to our wedding, Carol and Clancy put my mind at ease. The wedding was at a private residence, and Wayne, our chef for the occasion, made time to come and see us 2 days prior, to look at the logistics, and then as planned, turned up on time with wait staff who gave polish to our day by being so friendly and still formal. Wayne's creations were to die for, his different plates that were delivered were so tasty, all of our guests remarked on how good it was, and who were the new brother in law cancelled his sons wedding caterers, and is now looking at Clancy's due to the food and service quality. We had plenty of food, and were left with assembled platters for later in the evening, a nice touch. Thanks Guys, magnificent.

I didn’t think weddings necessarily had to be stressful, but in the end , we had more than our fair share. Planning an outdoor wedding and then a garden reception with a starlight dinner, had inherent weather risks…… I didn’t foresee cyclones, 1 in 100 year floods, burst water pipes and a month of wet weather all hitting during the weeks leading up to the day. This made getting the garden and dining tables ready nothing short of a miracle. It caused us to have to change wedding and photography venues….not to mention letting 100 guests know that the plans had changed in the last 48 hours. Through all this, and much more, one thing I wasn’t stressed about, was the catering. One meeting with Clancy, and the occasional phone call, and I knew he had my back.. “Clancys call me anytime darling” attitude, when he was also so busy with helping out with flood cleanup emergency crews at Tumbulgum on top of his busy schedule, was astonishing. He went the extra mile to help me trouble shoot many of the logistics of fitting everything into our small garden and in the end , for the guests, the event was a stunningly beautiful and relaxed. Dinner under the stars was a smooth operation and a great success with Clancy at the helm. We had many comments on how delicious and generous the food was, from our fun 60s’s styled nibbles to the massive tomahawk steaks. Our guests all remember the food! Thanks again Clancy.
