Dana's food was amazing! My family uses quite a few caterers around town. I would recommend him over any of the big named caterers in St. Louis. He is easy to work with and everything was delicious. I am planning on using him again!

We recently used Two Mike Catering for our wedding. Words cannot describe how amazing Joe was during the whole process. Even though the electric went out at the venue there were no delays. The food was amazing! We cannot wait to work with them in the future.

Rhonda was fabulous to work with. I was planning a bridal shower from out of town and I was worried about working with a caterer remotely. But the experience was great. Super responsive, easy to work with and everyone raved about the food!

Total Catering did our wedding and did an amazing job!! They exceeded all expectations and came to Illinois on a short notice after our original caterer fell through. The smoked prime rib was a huge hit!!

I was fortunate enough to have found Mellow Mushroom Catering when I had to arrange a dinner in St. Louis (I was in NYC!) for a group of 25 picky people with varied dietary preferences including vegetarian and vegan. Kelly Nielson, Catering Coordinator, was able to talk me off a cliff through her sage advice and proficiency, and with her help and calm demeanor, I was able to order plenty of food, including salad and pizzas and all the fixings, that covered all dietary bases. The food was not only delicious, but was delivered on time, and was packed and presented beautifully - not a detail was overlooked! I highly recommend Mellow Mushroom for your catering needs - you will not be disappointed with the proficient service or the variety, quality and presentation of the food! Thank you, Mellow Mushroom, for an outstanding job - I wish we had them in NYC!

Natina was prompt, well planned as well as full of ideas that we had not even thought of during our initial consultation. When it came to our ideas, Natina was very patient and she listened to all of our requests and executed them all to our liking. The food was amazing! It was far beyond our expectations. Noirblanc is my #1 choice for any future events. Thanks Again!

    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.
