Helpings Catering

We love the word “helping.”

In Newell and nearby places, mothers and aunts and grandmothers have, for generations, encouraged their family members to go get themselves another helping of whatever wonderful dish is on the buffet. Extra helpings mean there’s more than enough, all the way around. We like the way “plenty” feels, so it’s a tradition we plan to keep.

In addition to generous portions, you’ll find we’re committed to local traditions and farm fresh foods, both in “Swampfire Backwoods Bistro™” and in our Catering and event options.

Family recipes play a starring role in our catered meals with ample portions. Enjoy a complimentary basket of breakfast delights delivered to your door each morning. Follow with your choice of boxed lunches for picnics and exploring or family-style cookouts. Upon request, we host Barbecues, Low Country Boils, Oyster Roasts, and slow Southern suppers. Enjoy memorable meals prepared with regional fare, local game, tried-and-true family favorites, and lots of love. (Menus change seasonally.) Learn more about our food offerings here.
