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!

The food chef Bree and her assistant made was absolutely outstanding. They were prompt, professional, and a joy to have in our home. They made a very special birthday dinner for just my husband and me in our home. She worked with us on the menu and really cared that we were fully satisfied. Our meal was bacon wrapped asparagus, an amazing rib eye steak, crab mac and cheese, and chocolate ale cake. It was exactly what we wanted because my carnivore of a husband wants meat or beer in just about every course! She picked up on that and helped arrange a perfect and indulgent dinner. She introduced each course and told us a bit about how she prepared it. It was a gorgeous, intimate, delicious, and fun meal and experience. I can confidently and strongly recommend Chef Bree and Good Fork Catering. Thank you again, chef!!

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!

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 . Linda and Pat Gilligan , Powder Springs .

When I decided to have my 50th birthday party I just knew that I had to get Chef Tony to do my catering. Just as I thought, the food was exquisite and everyone remarked on how much they enjoyed the catering and the presentation. I highly recommend Chef Tony for any event, large or small.... he will not disappoint.

I ordered a week of meals and she delivered them straight to my work! There were so much variety including tacos with homemade tortillas, baked chicken, vegetable lasagna and tons of sides. All of the food was amazing and delicious. The potato salad is hands down the best I’ve ever had! The collard greens and macaroni and cheese were so delicious. You can tell everything was made from scratch with love. I also ordered some desserts (red velvet cake and sweet potato pie) which were to die for!

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.
