We worked with Sara and her brother ( the head chef) at The Landing Catering for our daughter's wedding reception in October 2014 and can't say enough good things about our experience. Sara was very timely in responding to our emails ( unlike another local large caterer) and was so pleasant to work with. The food for our event garnered rave reviews from our guests and we felt that their pricing was excellent. When it came to customizing the bar selections, Sara delivered on our requests and even surprised us with a wonderful wine selection that stayed within our bar budget. Definitely a five star outstanding experience!

Overall, this was such a pleasant experience! I would do it again in an instant. Heidi was quick to get back to me with a quote, stayed within my budget, and continued to modify the menu until we both felt good about it. And most importantly, the guests raved about the food. Great experience working with small local business!

This is one of the very few caterer who serve the real authentic Caribean and Cajjun foods items in this area. Their foods have best flavor. They fed more than 20,000 people for the past 10 years of our festivals. Everybody kept on coming for more. I recommend them to anyone to try the recipe.

Dana Munson from Saucy's Barnyard BBQ & Catering did an exceptional job catering mine and my wife's wedding. From the second we gave the business a call to ask if they could cater our wedding she was very prompt and organized. She was also very flexible in our meetings together when preparing and finalizing our catering ideas. She also prepared and set up everything at our wedding as well, which was very helpful and appreciated with the craziness of wedding planning! She made it easier for us and took the burden off. Honestly, I recommend her service to anyone because she did a fabulous job and couldn't have asked for better.

I had Greg Wisinski make a cupcake cake for my bridal shower. It was absolutely delicious and so beautiful! The cupcakes were homemade rumchata flavor with an amazing frosting which was also homemade and rumchata flavored! He iced them perfectly and shaped them all into a beautiful wedding dress with bling! It was a huge hit at my shower. Everyone raved about how delicious and beautiful it was!! Working with him was so easy and hassle free. His imagination is awesome and so creative, my cake was more than I could have asked for! I would suggest him for any event or party!

    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.
