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, MD, July 2019Corrine 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).”
Wedding at Wolftrap Farm, October 2017Ali Bullano
“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.”
Company Party, Mobelux RVA, October 2018Brae Blackmore
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!
Temple Beth El Synagogue, Alexandria VA, April 2019Jo Ann Allen
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!

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.
