Dave Snyder Owner and Chef

For Dave Snyder, the past three decades have been filled with culinary pursuits from New England to his beloved South. Born and raised in Michigan, his unabashed passion for cooking began in high school, continuing in college at the University of Georgia when he quickly discovered a preference for the kitchen over the classroom.

Michael Young Catering and Events Coordinator

Michael Young began his career with Halyards Catering in 2014. In 2016, Michael was promoted to his current position as catering and events manager, working directly with clients to design, plan, and execute exceptional experiences.

Adam Jones Head Chef at La Plancha

Tramici catered our wedding rehearsal dinner, and we couldn’t have been happier with the planning process, wonderful food, and service. The event coordinator created a menu that accommodated our budget and specific guest preferences. The staff could not have been more professional or more helpful, and our guests just raved over the food.
—Megan & Enrique

Incredibly delicious, amazing food presentation, and professionally orchestrated—these are what come to mind when I reflect back on my wife’s recent fortieth birthday dinner. Halyards certainly exceeded my expectations!

We used Halyards to cater a grand opening event for one of our real estate developments on St. Simons. When the time came for the party, the food was great, and the staff very professional and friendly. We would definitely use Halyards again!

When hosting a wedding, working with someone such as Dave Snyder pays off. He is a master chef and restaurateur, producing first-class events and guaranteeing customer satisfaction. Dave found us a site with a spectacular view of the Frederica River and even pulled off a boat sendoff for the newlyweds! Our guests raved over his legendary shrimp and grits and filet mignon. His knowledge of the island and ability to work with other merchants are invaluable.
—Lamar L.

We can’t put into words how thankful we are for the amazing job you did with our wedding. The food was outstanding, the service was excellent, and we were very impressed with the expert and efficient planning. Thank you to all who helped make our day perfect!
—The Sharptons

You made our wedding planning experience enjoyable and fun! While we loathed having to talk to some vendors, we looked forward to meeting with you and feel as if we made new friends. Thank you for going above and beyond what was expected. You’re rock stars and really changed the game for us!
