While planning a wedding can be stressful, working with Georgia and Xavier has been such a smooth and stress-free process. They are extremely organized and professional, and the food is absolutely amazing! Great presentation, great flavor, and they have recipe for all dietary restrictions. They work with your vision to make your wedding day perfect, and can help you come up with creative ideas. They’re great communicators, and work with your timeline and budget, and they don’t hesitate to go above and beyond. We are so grateful to work with them! I highly recommend using them, especially if you’re RVA local. They’re simply the best!
Wedding in Poolesville, MDCorrine Jacob
We hired The Camel to provide us with a space for a private party. They provided the space, the food, the beverages, and pointed me in the right direction for bands and some technicians. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. Everything about the event was flawless. As an added bonus, we rented during a happy hour so our bar tab went twice as far! It was just the right amount of space, clean bathrooms, great service and people are still talking about the food a year later! That brisket and those sausage stars are on point! To the Camel, Thank you so much for hosting our special event and taking the burden of planning all the different elements off of us. You guys were perfect

“Catering By The Camel exceeded my expectations when they catered my wedding. Even the tasting session blew our minds. Not only were they a pleasure to work with but the food was amazing, the service was top notch, and everything ran very smoothly. I would highly recommend Catering By The Camel for your next event, whether big or small (and get the mini crabcakes).”

“The Camel went out of their way to make a menu for our company’s German themed 10 year anniversary party. They even supplied us for a complimentary tasting and listened to our feedback to ensure that everything we served that night was exactly what we wanted. The night of they restocked, served and manned our food station. Even when there was a small catastrophe with our original outdoor plan, they jumped in and immediately changed the setup. We couldn’t have been happier with The Camel for our party and would recommend them to anyone.”

Georgia and Xavier, along with the rest of the Camel Catering crew, aided in making my wedding day wonderful and completely stress-free. The food was amazing; we received so many compliments on the BBQ and salads. Their service was also impeccable, as always, and I never had to do more than look around before one of them was making sure I had what I needed, and the same goes for our ~200 guests. If there was ever an issue throughout the entire process, I never heard a thing, which I think is what any bride would be in favor of, especially on her wedding day! They worked with our many different requests, even ones that came up last minute, and I am so grateful for their hard work putting together such a perfect event and pulling it off just as perfectly. If you are looking for a team who is dedicated to their craft and happy to work with you every step of the way, the Camel is the way to go. Shannon Ciucci bride (Seven Springs Farm Manquin, VA (same wedding) Catering By The Camel provided the most Amazing Food for our daughter’s rehearsal dinner and wedding.
The two events were so different. The rehearsal dinner was a formal, sit down serviced dinner and the food was as good as a five star restaurant. The Wedding reception dinner was out in the country and they brought in and cooked an incredibly elegant BBQ. But saying BBQ doesn’t do the meal justice, it was Fantastic! Thank you so much for easing my fears and creating Amazing Meals!

The Camel catered Beth El Hebrew Congregation’s second night Seder last year with delicious food. They were extremely pleasant to work with before, during and after the event. We are going to use them again this year!

We loved working with Georgia and Xavier for the catering for both of our daughters separate Bat Mitzvah celebrations! They helped us create our menu and made really creative suggestions we wouldn’t have thought of serving. They are very responsive to questions along the way and handled everything for our events in truly professional manner. We would definitely work with them again to cater future events!

We utilized Georgia and Xavier of Catering by the Camel for our Wedding in September 2018. We had been at prior events where their food and been showcased and everything was always, fresh, tasty and well-presented so it was an easy choice when it was my turn to select a Caterer. From the moment I engaged the team, they were top notch professionals. Georgia worked with me by sending so many good food recommendations and choices up front, while keeping my budget in mind. The team met me on several occasions at the Event Venue to get a feel for the space and Kitchen set up and took pictures to create their own vision. By the end of the process, we had picked a balanced wonderful array of foods to satisfy everyone palate. One other great thing as my Venue allowed outside alcohol, they coordinated me bringing all the booze and beverages to them a couple days before the wedding and they took care of transporting all to the Venue ahead of time and had it set up beautifully. This took so much pressure off me the day of the wedding to know all the food and drinks were taken care of! When I got there, the bars were all set up and ready to go. The bartenders they engaged for the event were excellent as well. During the actual wedding, they just were so helpful. From passing hors d’oeuvre at cocktail hour to ensuring the food presentation was spot on, and they even helped me to cut and serve our Wedding Cake. They didn’t leave any detail unturned big or small. The best part is everyone at the wedding raved about how good the food was which is truly testament to the staff and expertise of Catering by the Camel! I would highly recommend Catering by the Camel to anyone for any special event.

There’s an old saying that says if you really want to know how many friends you have, close Facebook and throw yourself a birthday party with bands and an open bar … and see who comes. By “old saying,” I mean I said it and I’m old so that’s close enough. The question is where to hold such an event. After seeing too many bands to count over the years at The Camel, I knew it would be the perfect spot for my event. And, for once, I was right! Working with Georgia was a breeze (a peach, even?). She took the stress out of the planning and made sure everything went smoothly. No details were left to chance. We worked out the bar, the entertainment, decorations, band issues and, of course, the food. Once they knew the budget, Georgia and her team they worked with us to maximize the variety of offerings and made sure we had what we needed. All in all a great experience. I can’t wait to go to my next private event there, hopefully one that someone else besides me pays for.

I work at Southern Hardwood and Floor Supply and we have hired the Camel for three large events now, each with headcounts of 150 or more. They have done a fantastic job every time and I will definitely be hiring them again for future events. Xavier and Georgia are very easy and pleasant to work with. I still get compliments on how great the food was at our events. Some of our favorites include the crab cakes, meatballs, and buffalo chicken dip! I would recommend the Camel to anyone looking for excellent service and quality of food.
