Robert and Natalie Williams, owners of Roux's Catering, are native to Augusta and have been in the restaurant business for nearly 25 years. Robert spent time honing his craft in local restaurants such as Davenports, The American Diner and Cadewalladers Cafe before opening Roux's Gourmet Catering in the Fall of 1996. Roux's Catering is one of Augusta's premier catering companies offering both social and corporate catering. With years of experience and some of the best chefs in Augusta, it's easy to see why they stay booked. Roux's specializes in custom weddings; however, their "On The Go" division offers some of the best catered lunches in town. Roux’s approach to cuisine and commitment to quality remains vital and fresh as a result of constant input and association with many of the top chefs and event coordinators in the CSRA. Executive Chef, Damion Perez, has been with Roux’s for over 12 years and brings unmatched dedication and creativity to the dishes Roux’s offers. Damion has also done stints at some of Augusta’s best restaurants. These experiences result in wonderfully creative and expertly executed meals for you and your guests. Roux's service staff is led by wife Natalie whose many years in the event business have enabled her to plan and execute any size event with the utmost professionalism and attention to detail. Roux's offers the same level of expertise and flexibility when it comes to catered lunches and do it yourself events. With the recent addition of The Lodge on Heath banquet facility to the Roux's family, Roux's Catering has been able to offer even more options to their clients. Whether it be an on premise wedding in the beautiful courtyard behind The Marbury Center or a spectacular corporate event featuring flavors from around the world, Roux's Catering and The Marbury Center have been great additions to the downtown area bringing life back to a once empty street.

"You are the best. Thank you for preparing and serving a personalized, delicious and wonderful reception and for providing the beautiful venue. We had no worries whatsoever. You coordinated everything beautifully including working with our wedding coordinator, the pianist, the DJ, the cake lady and our guests. If that were not enough, you and your staff bagged and boxed remaining food to take home.
