Gotta Have It was amazing to work with when it comes to food. They were able to create a whole menu to combine elements from my Korean background and my husband's love for southern bbq! We had a lot of compliments on the food and they even added in Kimchi to our buffet line which made my side of the family happy. I would use them again and have recommended others as well. They also have the ability to bring tables and linens. We even used their food truck to serve appetizers! Overall I am very grateful that we found a legitimate catering company that no only knows how to cook awesome food, but at a great price point.

We have worked with Nikki three(3) times now, and each time her menu has been a hit with my office. She is very professional and worked with us to meet our budget, dietary needs and guest count needs. She has always been on time with her delivery and set everything up nicely. She is also a very adorable and sweet in person. :) We will use her services again in the future and highly recommend her for any catering event!

We were searching for a caterer for our office's Christmas lunch, and we really hit the jackpot with Bountiful Basket Catering. Mike helped us select a menu to meet our budget, and the meal was simply outstanding. The next time we're in need of a caterer, Mike and Bountiful Basket will be our first call. "Five Stars" for an unforgettable event. Thanks Mike!

I had a lot of things go wrong on my wedding day, but I can honestly say that Cooking with a star Catering came through and did an outstanding job. The staff was so courteous and was always asking me if I needed anything (anything at all! even drinks from the bar!) The food was delicious and the coordinator that I hired from them was outstanding! Kendra did a wonderful job and she made me feel like everything was going to be alright even when everything was going wrong. Everything I asked her to set up was just the way I wanted it. If I ever need to have another event catered, I will definitely be using Cooking with a Star catering again!

Chef Marcus catered a 2-day IBM video shoot for 40 people and was able to please everyone's palates. Most importantly, he was able to make delicious foods without common allergens. No one even missed dairy, gluten, or nuts. It was important to us because our client, a high-ranking IBM executive, has multiple allergies. He and everyone else who ate could not stop raving about how delectable everything was. Not to mention, he was on time and very professional. I certainly will not look further than Chef Marcus for our future catering needs.

Very Professional, Knowledgeable, On Time, Great layout of the food and I could go on and on! Daphne and her staff were on point! I wish there were more stars to give. Our event involved about 75-80 people. The price was very reasonable and her/staff was AMAZING! Going forward we are going to use her company for all of our catering events. Our company has a staff of 90 plus people. She even remember things that I forgot about. She made everything so easy. They were on time, they set everything up, came back and broke everything down. Would our company use her company again ABSOULTELY!!! In a word PERFECT!! On behalf of Butler Lexus we want to say THANK YOU!!

Tad's Tasty Treats is a paramount provider for Georgia Power catering. They use only the freshest ingredients, and served a homemade Lemon Bundt cake with lemon glaze so moist and "delish" our entire staff was in awe. Their highly professional staff created a first class cuisine, and coordinated timely service allowing flexibility for all our meeting needs. Whatever you need, you can put yourself in the trusting hands of Tad's Tasty Treats. They will certainly exceed your expectations. Thanks again Tad for your superb service!

Where do I start!? First and foremost, from the very first consultation to the post-wedding; In-Joy Catering's staff was phenomenal! My now husband and I wanted the best catering around but of course budget friendly. Ms. Dena took her time to completely personalize every little detail for the two of us. There were even things that we never discussed that she went above and beyond and snuck in at our reception! From the time we stepped foot into our reception venue the table settings and the staff stood out. The servers were in Black Tie apparel and very respectful and well spoken. My guest raved on the service as if they were actually at a restaurant. I can go on and on of my experience with Dena and her team but I will leave it up to you to complete the review of such a great service! I would refer her to anyone looking for a cater ! Thanks Dena for helping make our special day even better and stress free!

We used Designated Chef Catering for our sons' rehearsal dinner in April of this year . They have a wide selection to choose from and and we opted for the taco bar . We were very pleased with the quality and presentation, as were all of our guests. I would call on them again and highly recommend Rich and his staff . Leftovers were nicely packed in plastic containers and aluminum trays for us to easily take home . Food fantastic including deserts. Go for the banana pudding .

Man thos dudes pallet is outstanding! He did the catering for an event i had. He was on time with everything. The food tasted great. His concept on food was what my event needed. Thanks to him I've been able to keep my current clients as well as gain a few more. He has also done a few small meals for me when I had a date. I'll be using him for all of my events both big and small. I don't think that there is an event he can't pull off. Very professional and kind. Thanks Chef Kerby Morgan see you at the next event!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

Do you tip a wedding caterer?

Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

How much does wedding catering cost per person?

Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

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.

What should you look for in a caterer?

A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

  • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
  • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
  • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
  • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
  • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
  • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
