They catered my reception for 80 people. Vincent was one of the two caterers whose first reply responded to my request for a vegan menu with creative suggestions and ample selections. He was promptly responsive at all times during the planning stage. They were better than on time, they arrived a bit early. Travis set everything up, served, and interacted well with the guests. The food was attractively presented, had great visual appeal and best of all tasted great. His cleanup afterward was impeccable. I highly recommend GHI.

Nikki is an excellent chef - food was delicious. She was on time and was very personable! The young men she brought with her were so nice! I had asked for her to prepare extra homemade croutons for me to have the next day and though she said of course I suspect in the haste to leave she forgot them. ( By the way they were great!) The only comment I would make in using a chef versus my regular caterers is that Nikki and her team planned to leave while we were eating dessert. In doing so I would have been left to clean all those dishes ( 10 seated guests) and wine glasses myself. She said that was the way she always did things. None of my caterers have ever done that -- that is part of what you are paying for ($700+) to enjoy your evening and have no work to do ! Just being hostess is enough getting the house and flowers and table set! Nikki knew we had 50 people arriving post dinner for an after party and needed the dinner dishes all pulled and cleaned - was very disappointed that we had to discuss that at the last minute! I had hired a separate bartender for the glasses to be taken care at the post party. I expected her to not do any of those dishes. I did ask her to place trays of desserts I had prepared on the "cleaned off" dining table when they finished. ( I paid them a handsome tip for doing this) Also - I have never had a caterer use the dishwasher for my dishes - I have always found them hand washed and stacked in kitchen. Nikki's team loaded my dishwashers (2) with the hand painted china and sterling flatware. I should have explained that is not done - my mistake, I just haven't had to before. She is an EXCELLENT CHEF! Services are not as "easy" on the host and her familiarity with things like the china and silver should be discussed before hand. Be very specific about every detail on how you see the evening going - write it up so you both know. We had Sea Bass and It Was Amazing!

The Bountiful Basket was our caterer for our wedding on July 10. There is not enough that could be said about what Mike and his team did for us. They were way more than caterers. Mike handled everything: tables, tents, chairs, dinnerware, glassware for both our wedding and our rehearsal dinner. His staff was so very professional and on the ball. And the food....WOW. It was incredible evidenced by the fact that there was very little left. His mac and cheese is unique and fantastic. The shrimp and grits were fabulous and he makes fried chicken just like your grandmother. Please seriously consider The Bountiful Basket for any catering event. You will not be sorry. Thanks Mike and crew you made our day perfect.

I worked with Kendra to cater an alumni dinner, and I cannot say enough good things about her. She was responsive, friendly, and very helpful in coaching me through my first time hiring a caterer for a large event. She and her team worked hard to adapt to our unique choice of venue, the center of a college campus, and the event went spectacularly. I can honestly say her team made the most delicious popcorn tofu chicken I have ever had. The food was appetizing and delicious and the team was very friendly. We hope to use Cooking with a Star for our events in the future.

My boyfriend surprised me with a 4 course meal at our apartment, cooked by Kelsey. Not only was the food AMAZING, but she was very professional--arrived on time, brought all of her own supplies, and even cleaned all of the dishes and counter space once she was done. She explained every course, each one very unique and creative. My favorite part (hard to choose!) was the Nutella banana creme brûlée dessert. Would definitely recommend Kelsey for a private dinner or dinner party.

Marcus and Devon did a fantastic job. We had a post game hot meal. The game was delayed due to weather so the meal was served 90 minutes later than expected. It was all still fresh and delicious. I highly recommend Pas de Deux. Talented chefs and service with a smile.

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!!

I found Daddy's Girl BBQ just searching for holiday catering companies on Google. I had an awesome experience ordering for our catered Thanksgiving Day Meal. Mrs. Darling was very personable, professional and the food was delicious! She was even able to assist me in providing last minute food items for a separate event-which was greatly appreciated and super accommodating of her amidst a busy holiday catering season. I will definitely be using her services going forward and would gladly recommend her to cater any events.

My event: dinner with 12 guests Food prepared: grilled salmon with buerre blanc sauce, grilled asparagus, and garlic mashed potatoes. Perfeclty seasoned with a medley of flavors that were balanced, salmon was moist with and witthout sauce, aspargus were crisp with light grill taste and mashed potatoes were delish. The garlic did not overpower the flavor of the potatoes. Trey was professional and assured guests were satisfied with their food. He offered suggestions for the use of the buerre blanc on all the dishes. Food was fresh, presentation was eye catching and most importantly flavorful.

Heavenly Hawgs BBQ was selling some of their delicious food at an event that I attended. I tried their smoked pork and smoked chicken and it was very good. So was their Brunswick Stew and smoked mac & cheese. I asked the husband & wife team how could go about getting them to cater an event/party in the future and they told me they have a page on Facebook. So I liked their FB page on the spot and know where to turn when I want to host a get-together but leave the chore of cooking some superb eats to someone else. https://www.facebook.com/heavenlyhawgsbbq/

Love Eat Local catered a brunch for 30 with a delicious, innovative menu. I wanted something other than the typical brunch menu and Chef Lindsay worked her magic. Everyone loved it. The only unfortunate thing was that I didn't have any leftovers!!

I was somewhat disappointed in the presentation and quality of the food. The taste of the food was not what I thought would be from a professional caterer.

The menu items were personalized to fit our needs. We were able to watch Nicole prepare and cook several of the food choices and then we sampled everything. She provided details about what she cooks and the nutritional value of the items compared to other foods. The cooking lesson was a birthday for my boyfriend and his favorite part was making our own pizzas. In addition to the making pizzas to go (and who doesn't love pizza), we left with plenty of tasty leftovers from this fun experience.

      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.
