We were elated with everything from the creative passed hors d’ oeuvres of chicken and waffles with a basil- peach jam and an amazing deviled egg with pancetta, capers and a sweet bbq sauce to the shrimp and grits accented with pulled short rib, and a wonderful smoked salmon with corn salsa, and who can forget the favorite; bacon maple donuts, plus so much more. We chose Brinner (breakfast for dinner) as our menu. Kathy was so open to the idea and worked very hard to create a menu our guests are still raving about! The staff at Webster House is so friendly and professional. They really have your best interest at heart, and it shows.”
