On the 19th of June, 2015, my youngest son Alexander got married to Shelly, and we had the fortune to have Once Upon An Even of Tampa Bay, as our caterers. Wow, there are no words to describe the service they provided. Every thing was done very professionally,with taste and class. The servers were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure that everybody was satisfied. Then the food came and it was out of this world ! We feel very fortunate to have found Sandy, and Once Upon An Event of Tampa Bay ! They are going to be our caterers for any and every activity that comes along. THEY ARE THE BEST ! Zulma M.

We hired this company because we thought they would give us a better deal because they are small... we got more than ever imaginable. We were delighted with the decorations and the food was delicious. We have used them several times since then and will continue to do so !

The service here was INCREDIBLE. Of all the aspects of planning our wedding, the catering turned out to be the most enjoyable simply because of the honesty, helpfulness, and flexibility of the staff at David's Catering. First, when I gave them our budget they immediately came up with numerous creative ideas to help us stay within our budget while still having everything we desired from our caterer, and there were never any unexpected upcharges. We ended up with food left over, for a price that was almost half what other caters wanted to charge us for even less options. Their servers were extremely cheerful, professional, and made sure everyone had enough to eat. The food was unique and flavorful and we were given a wide variety of choices to choose from. Finally, as a local business I felt like David's Catering treated us like family. They went above and beyond to give us an amazing deal for their services, prepared all the food with care, and were always very responsive, including a few last minute changes and requests we had. Overall, I could not recommend David's Catering highly enough, I researched, met with, and got quotes from caters all of Alachua County, and I can say with confidence David's Catering is the best you will find!

Highly Recommend!! I would highly recommend Ultimate Rentals and Catering to anyone needing a caterer or tailgating fun. The food was delicious -I had a ton of compliments on the food. From a party planner perspective, Shawn, his wife and staff were fantastic. They were set up and we were not quite ready so they pitched in where needed. They were awesome! The tailgating trailer, corn hole and adult trikes were big hits at the party. Not to mention the adult trikes are hilarious to watch race. Our party would not have been the same with out them and that is the true sign of a great caterer. Again, I would highly recommend Ultimate Rentals and Catering to anyone in need of catering or tailgating games. They were on time, had great communication and highly professional. I will definitely use them again.

    The food was extraordinary. At the time of working with Diana I had just become vegan and didn't think it would be enjoyable. Dynamus Dai proved that theory wrong. The food was so good that I believe it's the reason I'm still vegan today.

      I have had the pleasure of dining at Cafe on the Avenue several times. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. Tracy is a very hands-on owner and shows great attention to detail. Chef Rudy prepares all food at the time of the order and it is always fresh and delicious. Tracy has done the catering for several years and has done quite well. If you are looking for a nice evening out with good food or are in the need of a good caterer you should contact Tracy at the Cafe.

      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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
