Tyler and his team were amazing! We used his catering service for our wedding. Tyler was professional and dealt with my last minute changes. He took the guess work out of everything. He knew what guests would take more of, gave wonderful advice on variety of foods and flow of the evening, and him and his team delivered! One of the ladies came and gave me food while I was getting my dress bustled (talk about attention to detail and service!). Some of my guests are still raving about the food more than 6 months after our big day. We would highly recommend for any event.

We recently had Chef Tyler cater our wedding and we could not be happier with the results! Tyler made the process very easy and stress-free. He was at the venue well before we expected and we received nothing but compliments on the food. We had chicken naan tacos, Thai chicken meatballs and pulled pork sliders along with salad and fruit. Everything was delicious, especially the chicken meatballs! We look forward to working with Tyler and his staff again in the future.

I cannot stress enough how important good food is at a wedding. We did not just get good food, but great service with Cleavers. The food and service was high-end, but the price was budget friendly! Tyler and his team did an amazing job at our event. Everyone raved about the boursin cream sauce. We had unexpected leftovers, which Tyler vacuum sealed for us to better preserve them. Fast forward 5 days after my wedding, I'm still eating delicious smoked chicken.

When discussing the food for our son's wedding we immediately thought of Chef Tyler, and no others. Tyler always provided a great variety of beautiful and delicious options at previous events, and man did he ever deliver at ours!! Everything was spectacular and provided with a very personal touch. We received accolades throughout the entire night about the variety of delicious options he prepared. Tyler is the man, and continually exceeds his already stellar reputation. Be sure to contact Tyler for any event you are planning!!!

Tyler and his company are amazing! Catering and food was one of my main,concerns for my wedding 8/17 and Tyler made it the most simple and stress free experience! He is great with communication and worked with our budget as well as what we wanted to serve our guests. From the tasting to the food and display at our reception the food was bomb. My,guests are still singing his praises. Please book Tyler for your needs, you won't regret it!

Grace Payne

To sum it up, Tyler just made the whole process easy and stress-free for us. We were so impressed with Tyler and his food that we opted to have him host both the rehearsal/groom's dinner as well as cater the wedding. His space was perfect for our small group to enjoy an intimate evening and the food and drinks were outrageously good. The entire group commented numerous times how great the food was and how cool Tyler and his crew were. He offers a laid back, classy environment with 5 star food.

We worked with Tyler at Cleavers for a wedding on August 9. Since we are from out of town, all communication until the wedding was via email. I cannot say enough about how responsive Tyler was to every request regarding the reception dinner ... from venue to menu planning to pricing. We did not have a chance to sample any of the food beforehand, so we relied on other posts for reviews. For the record, the positive reviews were 100% accurate. The food was beautiful and delicious!!! And the servers were very professional. We had plenty of food and heard RAVES about how delicious the food was. Without reservation, I give Cleavers a 5 star rating!!!

Stephanie Hurd

We had an event with 225 people and the food was wonderful! Tyler was great to work with.

Jenny Waltjer

Our guests at our wedding couldn't stop thanking us for such great food!!! Cleavers was awesome to work with and made it easy for us to enjoy the wedding planning process and our wedding day.

Cleavers deserves and extra credit star because their food and service was sooo good! All of our friends are still in shock by how great our wedding food was, "Best wedding food ever!" and "Those tacos." were common comments throughout the evening. My husband and I did not do a taste testing because it did not work out for us to do so, but I now wish we had just so I could have another one of those AMAZING tacos! We would without a doubt recommend Cleavers for all catering needs!

Karlee Schroeder

Tyler and his crew are AMAZING! We used Catering by Cleavers for a company party and have since been hooked, they made specialty dishes that blew the minds of all our employees. CbC will be doing all of our parties from here on out! Thank you again Catering by Cleavers Team!

Joshua Howe

The best in the Business, Catering by Cleavers catered our Christmas party and wow. The food, the service was all top notch.


Tyler and his team has catered numerous events for our business and has consistently done a great job with some of the best food I have tasted across the country.

Mark P

Some of the best catered food I've had. Tyler and his team are very nice and help out anyway they can. We've had Tyler cater more than once and every time its spectacular!

Cole Lauck

I have been to many lunches, dinners and receptions that used Catering by Cleavers. Food has always been high quality and unique. This should be your first choice for any Catering Event!

AJ Nelson

I have attended numerous events and luncheons that have been provided by Catering by Cleavers. Outstanding food and presentation!

Scott Axtell

I've had the pleasure of experiencing Chef Tyler's culinary creations on several occasions and every time....perfection! Whether it's a small, intimate dinner party or a corporate fundraiser, he's got what it takes to ensure everyone has a positive and pleasing experience. I would recommend Chef Tyler....definitely!

Lisa Schultz

I have been to several events that have been served by Catering by Cleavers, and to say that they are the best actually does them no justice. When you walk through the door and are greeted with the delicious smell of their food, you know that you are in for a very memorable experience. Personally, I believe that the way they prepare their meats is second to none. The Chef once made a steak that he had in a sous vide the entire day and then seared the exterior to perfection before serving. It almost literally melted in my mouth with how tender it was, and the taste was better than any other cut of meat that I have had before. If you are looking for a great catering experience with extraordinary food, there really is no other option that compares to Catering by Cleavers.

Aaron Tennyson

Tyler and his team were fantastic to work with! Always very responsive and willing to help and make adjustments! They made the dinner portion of our event seamless!

Tanna Becker

We used Chef Tyler for our wedding and it was some of the best food we've ever had. Especially for a wedding. We got so many compliments on it and even my husband and I continued to go back for seconds and thirds. They were also extremely easy to work with and made sure to stay on top of dates for our wedding.

Paige Molling

DREAM wedding caterer! They worked with the budget we had, helped us pick our menu, truly gourmet quality and excellent service. I didn't expect them to clean up after our tables, but they did. They were on it! The Chef carving pork was very knowledgeable about the cooking process and was excited to share the technique with inquiring guests. VERY professional and prices were comparable to others in the area. I doubt the others would have been as AMAZING as Cleaver's.

Jenelle Sigler

We had a great experience with Cleaver's when they catered for our wedding last month. The food was fantastic and we received so many compliments from our guests! For our meal we chose the pork loin and chopped chicken with Boursin cream sauce, mashed potatoes, corn and salad. The bbq meatballs and bacon jam cream cheese dip appetizers were also delicious! There was no leftovers by the end of the meal as many of our guests went back for seconds. Tyler, Mike and the rest of Cleaver's crew are great to work with from planning out your meal, food tasting and last minute changes to guest count. You won't be disappointed when booking them for your wedding or event.

Laura Mudder

I've had the pleasure to work with Chef Tyler multiple times over the last 10 years; every experience has been a top 10! His planning and communication are thorough, food is delicious, staff is professional, and service always top notch. Most recently, Cleaver's catered our company ribbon cutting event. I'm pretty sure some people came just for the food! Every detail exceeded my expectation. My recommendation - start by giving Chef Tyler the freedom to create menu. His creations are always better than what I initially think I want.

Korena Keys

We used Cleavers Catering for the rehearsal dinner to our son's wedding and were very pleased! Chef Tyler has a very nice selection to choose from! We chose to do heavy and light appetizers and desserts and everyone loved it! Everything was cooked perfectly and he and his staff were very professional. We highly recommend!

Sandi Radtke

The absolute BEST food & service from Cleavers
Would definitely recommend to everyone!
you all did a great job
Thank you


Tyler was great to work with. Food was awesome! We had multiple people tell us the food was the best food they have had at a wedding. We will definitely use him again for any future catering needs and highly recommend him to others!

Samantha Enger

We had Cleaver's cater our wedding reception dinner. We had tons of compliments about the quality of the food as well as the people serving the food!! Some of our guests said it was the best wedding meal they have ever had! We had pork and shredded chicken with mash potatoes, corn, salad, and a bun. We had to change our guest count a few times and they were very flexible and understanding! Cleaver's was very helpful in deciding what food to get and what would travel well since our wedding was about an hour away. Highly recommend Cleaver's for any catering needs!

Christopher Reistroffer

Tyler and his team were great to work with!! He catered my wedding of about 140 guests, 6/15/23. The food was delicious, New York strip and chicken! Highly recommend! Tyler answered all questions we had in a timely manner. He was very professional and if we ever have an event in Sioux Falls again, we will definitely be reaching out for his catering services!

Jenna Goss

Chef Tyler catered our wedding at The Atrium. When I tell you that everything was even more delicious than what everyone was hyping about, I mean it! The chicken cut like butter, the veggies melted with every savory goodness in your mouth, and the bacon jam was all the hype! Tyler was such a good communicator throughout the whole process and made sure to answer our every need. Everything was absolutely delicious and the service that came along with it was just the icing on the cake!

Marta Rechtenbaugh

Tyler and his crew catered our Marriage Date Night for 350 people and all I can say is that it was amazing! Not only was the food incredible, but his team was very professional and did an outstanding job. Tyler is very thorough and has attention to detail, and you can tell that he wants your event to be a success. We highly recommend Cleavers!
