Testimonials

There is nothing more gratifying than the thank you notes and emails from our family of clients. 

We love hearing from you and helping you create beautiful memories for all your important life moments!

"We have happily been going to Woods End for the best deli lunch in the Brooklawn area for at least 13 years. We’ve had countless lunches, chatted with Fred about the latest happenings and think the store keeps us connected to the neighborhood. We are delighted for FRED’s expansion to Black Rock Turnpke and know he’ll bring the same great food and gentle manner to a whole new location. 

Fred also has an alternate persona as a great caterer! Greystone Catering did our two graduation parties and was part of our daughter’s wedding weekend. They couldn’t have been more professional, with great food, lovely presentation and friendly staff. We highly recommend!"

Woods End is a local joint with a homey feel and outstanding, high quality deli food. A regular stop for our family”.

"Remember the TV show Cheers? 'Where everybody knows your name!' Well welcome to Fred's, where high quality food mixed with outstanding customer service makes Fred's a welcome addition to Black Rock Turnpike. The salmon, every soup on the menu, the specialty sandwiches and delicious side dishes are just a few of the foods which are great to bring home to your family. Don't forget pick up some of Fred's famous chocolate chip cookies. Fred himself, greets every customer on a first name basis with a sincere smile. Cheers to Fred's and best of luck."

"Whether I’m doing a dinner party in my home or a Gala for 250 People, I rely on Fred Kaskowitz from Catering By Greystone to cater it. He always works with me to not only come up with a great price within my budget but to also pick a fabulous assortment of delicious food. I have recommended him to so many of my friends and they all rave about what a great job he did for them. I can’t wait for his new place, FRED 06825, opens in Fairfield, so when I don’t gfeel like cooking, I can stop by and take home a hot prepared meal for my family. Good luck Freddie with your new place."

- Joan K., Westport, CT

"Fred has catered more than 100 of my family and friends events (both big and small) over the past 15 years. The quality of food, attention to detail and level of service has never wavered.  His professionalism and overall passion for what he does comes across, most simply, in the end product - a phenomenal catered event.  When you work with Fred, all you have to think about is whether the people will ever leave. You won't be disappointed!"

- Erika W., Fairfield, CT

“My wife and I hired Fred to cater our post-baby shower party at our home where we had many family and friends from near and far come to celebrate on this very special day. The experience was top notch from the planning of the menu to the last bite of dessert! Fred worked with me weeks in advance of the party to put together a creative menu for our meat and gluten free guests. Most food establishments offer the same old thing when it comes to gluten free. Fred went above and beyond to ensure that we had diverse, allergy friendly and delicious food that satisfied all of our guests. On the day of the party, (which is always stressful!) Fred sent his hard working and friendly colleague, Felix, to my home to set up all of the fresh food, serve our guests whatever they needed and clean up the mess at the end! Bonus: Felix also helped my family carry in the baby gifts! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience from the food choices to the food quality to the service! Excellent all around! I can’t wait to have another party for Fred to cater again!”

- Jessica G., Fairfield, CT

"Three Cheers for Woods End Deli! Where everyone knows your name. Hip hip hooray! I love going for some "Grab and Go" at Fred 06825."

- Tom from the 06605

"We worked with Fred to have 250 boxed lunches delivered for a client event and he was absolutely fantastic to work with.  We had to postpone the lunches twice given the unpredictability of the weather and Fred worked with me to ensure we were able to get what we needed when they were needed.  We look forward to working with him and Catering by Greystone in the future. The attendees were very happy with the lunches and the selection offered."

- Stephanie E.

“I have been a client (not a customer) of Fred for over 15 years.  I say ‘client’, because of our ongoing relationship.  Folks who take advantage of Fred’s culinary expertise are not merely customers, they truly are clients, to the point of being an extended family – and are treated accordingly.  I have never, and I mean NEVER, been disappointed with anything that comes out of Fred’s kitchen. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, as Fred is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.  The care and friendliness of Fred and his staff just makes it a pleasure to work with all of them. I can heartily recommend Fred and all of his recommendations for any of your dining/catering/party needs.  Thanks for years of good eats, Fred!”

- Jim B., Newtown

"It has been a pleasure knowing Fred these past 15 years.  I have only the highest praise for all the meals he has catered.  I wouldn’t think of doing a party without Fred.  From the wonderful food, to the beautiful presentation, to the hard-working staff and to Fred, of course, the most wonderful chef, my parties would not have been a success without him."

- Malvene R., Westport

A long overdue letter to thank you and everyone at Wood’s End and Greystone for all that you do and have done for us at Congregation B’nai Israel. 

From Shabbat dinners, to luncheons and special events it has been a pleasure to work with you and your able staff. Not only is the food delicious, well prepared and plentiful, but your service and flexibility to adjust has been greatly appreciated.  I know there have been times when we ordered for fifty and called you at the last moment and told you there were now eighty expected and you were able to regroup quickly and provide just what we needed.  You’ve also accommodated when we’ve need some special orders for vegetarians or those who requested kosher options.

You have made a lot of friends here at the Temple and I look forward to continuing the relationship between B’nai Israel and you and your staff.

- Rabbi Jim Prosnit

 "Whether eating in or enjoying Fred's catering, his food is always creative, fresh, generous, and delicious; the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Fred catered many of our family celebrations -- from formal dinners to summer gatherings on the deck -- and he exceeded our expectations every time. Having an event catered by Fred is about more than food;  it's about sharing and creating family memories that will last a lifetime."

- Rebecca and Dan B., formerly of Trumbull

"Fred, Felix and the entire crew at Woods End have been part of our lives for the last twenty years.  Fred has catered events for us, and all of the food has been delicious! The sandwiches at Woods End are a must-have for our family.  

And  when our extended family visits, eating a triple-decker Barnum at Fred's is a required stop.  Fred and Felix always have a friendly word with each customer, most of whom they know on a first-name basis.  They make us feel at home, comfortable, and we know we'll be well-fed."

- Meg M., Fairfield, CT

"There isn't enough space for the accolades for Fred, his food and his people!  Whether for Business or Pleasure, Fred knows what works best and he knows how to help you accomplish the goals for your party.  I've used him for business and for pleasure and for large and small events and it's always been a wonderful experience. for all. Call me for details!  It would be a pleasure!"
