Vivian did all the preparations cooked and served dinner for 8 and then cleaned up after. This allowed me to enjoy the party and focus on other aspects of the evening. She was easy to communicate with and I would work with her again. The food she severed was delicious. She even brought an extra salad that added to the evening. Her price was very competitive with the other chefs I spoke to. I will call her again.

Well I've had the first experience of working up close and personal and I'm lucky. The food served is nothing but top notch! It's fresh, it's healthy BUT delicious, and completely deceiving because it doesn't seem healthy. There's always variety and even themes which makes it more fun in my opinion. Did I mention you even get your own custom lunch cooler bag. There's alot of passion and hard work put into this and it shows.

Dearborn National Thanksgiving Meal Employee Feedback for SHB Catering • This food was amazing and I need that recipe for those yams! LOL • I think the caterers were excellent. Very polite and the food was very good. I would recommend them again. Two thumbs up! • The new caterers were amazing. . .I am so glad we are no longer using the other people. • I thought it was very good and they were so pleasant and friendly, as well. • Really enjoyed the food. It all tasted sooooo good! • I really liked the food, tasted good. • The mashed potatoes were a little runny, but they had good flavor. • Food was delicious!!! Great Job!!! • I thought the meal was really good. The wait staff was very friendly! • THEY WERE AMAZING! • They were very nice and polite, so I do not want to complain too much, but the food was not as good as prior caterers. • The only thing that could have used a “little” more seasoning was the dressing. Everything was delicious! Moist turkey and smooth mashed potatoes and those yams!!! • Everything was good, but I’m not a fan of cornbread dressing. • What a nice group of people! And the food was delicious. Loved the candied yams! • Can we use them for Christmas? (Nancy’s response was “We’ve already committed to Cygan-Delaney, but we’re using SHB for dessert!”) • Delicious! Thank you! • Very limited servings of turkey, not a lot of flavoring in the food, kinda bland. • No flavoring in the food. The dressing was bland. No celery, onions, bell pepper, the usual ingredients for dressing. • I enjoyed the food! Previous caterers have brought processed turkey that was not real. This was the real deal! • Not a fan of cornbread dressing, but this was fairly good! • One word – AWESOME!! I think one of the best so far! • I loved everything, the dressing was really good. The portion of turkey could’ve been larger.

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.

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.

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 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.
