I surprised my parents with a big party for their 60th Anniversary and I was really wanting everything to be perfect. From the time I met with Chef Ray, his professionalism and caring attitude made me feel reassured about all of the food that would be served. And he was so organized so I knew that all details were taken care of! And the food was so great! Everyone was going for seconds! I definitely recommend him for any event! Thank you, Chef!

L'Chris Catering catered a retirement party for about 120 people. I work for a well known Utility Company and I must say that they did a fantastic job, they were here at our venue hours a head of time preparing and setting up. They were very professional and the charge was very reasonable. The decorations for the theme we requested was exactly the way I liked it and the food was phenomenal! They received great reviews from several of the attendees at the event. I would definitely use L'Chris Catering again.

Antonio captured moments from my mom's 50th birthday party. She is not a fan of taking pictures, but I felt a photo album of celebrating such a great occasion was necessary. Antonio made her feel comfortable and she was quite pleased with all of the photos we received in less than 48 hours after the party.

East 59 catered our employee holiday party in the office and did a phenomenal job. All the food was very tasty and attractively presented. We also used them for a retirement cocktail party and they performed equally as well. Would definitely recommend.

I had the opportunity to attend a party catered by NJC a while back. Eryka, the owner, had us each bring an ingredient and she put together creative versions of familiar dishes that were so tasty, fresh, and all around divine. I am eager to put in my first real order with NJC because I am confident of the skill, time, effort and care that will be put into my investment.

I've had the incredible pleasure to enjoy the food prepared by Zane Allsup with Sweet Bonz Alabama for years. Whether at weddings, parties or just privately prepared the food is exceptional, second to none! He and his staff are professional and will make sure you are satisfied with food and service. From a party of 10 to as large as you can imagine, I HIGHLY recommend Zane and Sweet Bonz Alabama.

I have used Birmingham Sushi Classes to cater my office parties as well as taken the class on how to make my own sushi. Chef Kelly makes the class informative as well as fun. Her catering skills are beyond great! She has creative and innovative ideas that make your party an event that all of your friends will talk about for a long time to come. She can work with any budget. She will so whatever it takes to make your party the talk of the office.

I retired after 44 years as a high school teacher and wanted to celebrate with all my friends and family. Drop off catering with a server made it possible for me to be part of the party. Meagan, the server, took care of everything while I enjoyed my friends. The food exceeded expectations and the guests raved about the grits, chicken and chocolate bread pudding. It was wonderful!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
