We ordered a whole pig roasted and delivered to our event. The process was so easy to order what we wanted and to pay. The pig arrived 30 minutes before the event fresh from the smoker. Absolutely the best tasting pork I've ever had! Fantastic experience and we'll be using this caterer again.

Very easy to work with. Conducted practically the entire transaction by phone and e-mail. "Katie" from Catering was awesome working with us to pull this party off. The ham, red-skinned mash potatoes and the mac & cheese were big hits. The one complaint - such as it is - was the turkey was not craved meat from a bird. But instead some type of carved turkey roll product. It was very juicy, but not what people expected. I would definitely recommend Tortoise & Hare for your catering event.

I had a barbecue for a celebration in my backyard, and Chef Evan hooked us up! He made me feel like I was in Kansas City again with his BBQ pulled pork and fried chicken. You guys rock!

I recently used Dinner on Demand to cater my graduation party. Not only was Chef B exceptionally professional but her food was delicious; two things you want from a chef! My favorite part of this process was collaborating with Chef B about the menu. I’m a one-note cook, making the same boring meals weekly, but together she helped me to come up with a menu that would satisfy my family and accommodate two of my friends’ special diets—one is vegan and the other has a gluten allergy. Typically party food for me is wings, chips and dip and some hot dogs and hamburgers. For my party, Chef B assembled muffuletta sliders on Hawaiian bread as the opening act. No boring chips and dip here! While we noshed on the sliders she sliced up the roasted brisket which was encrusted with garlic and sea-salt and served with chimichurri sauce. She also sautéed some sweet potato clear noodles with veggies and put together a mixed green salad with sliced pear, smoky bacon, blue cheese crumbles and chopped egg—a lovely mix of tangy and sweet. To top off this fantastic meal she made a homemade flan that was so tasty, folks in my family who “don’t eat that kind of stuff,” were tearing into the rich vanilla-laden custard with so much gusto, I had to put some to the side and stash in the back of the fridge. I would use Chef B’s services again. When you watch her cook you know this is what she loves to do and that love comes through the food.

    I had the pleasure of using the services of Delicious Diva5 for a bridal shower in August. I was not disappointed. Customer service and quality is very important to me. I received prompt service for the catering menu, amazing set up, using creative and fine cookware for display. Most importantly, the food was amazing. Great flavor and presentation. The bride is a picky eater; therefore, it was important that I have the appropriate food. The bride LOVED everything. From the wings, to the chicken salad to the deviled eggs, everything chose was delicious. I highly recommend the services of Delicious Diva5! You will not be disappointed!

    Dave catered my wedding in September 2014. We had a pig roast complete with all the sides and fixings! Not only were our guests super impressed and obsessed with the food but they also loved Dave and how personable he was. The food was absolutely phenomenal and we highly recommend using Dave to cater any event!!!

    I used Center of Town to cater a 50th Anniversary party for 50 people at Adelphi Mill. From the first contact, owner Kristel Wardell was responsive and helpful, offering good suggestions and making the party process easy. Kristel and her servers were professional and personable, and handled everything from set-up to clean-up. The food and decor that they provided were excellent. I would especially recommend the rosemary roasted chicken! The only reason for four stars rather than five is that there was a small problem with a time lag. I would use Center of Town again, however, and highly recommend them.

    Chef Whitman cooked for a dinner party of ours and I have only two words to describe the experience, utterly amazing!!! The only part which topped Chef's professionalism was the amazing taste of her food. The entire experience far exceed our expectations. So much so that our guests are raving about it and we are looking for the next event we will have Chef Whitman cook for us. I have attended numerous social events but I can not recall one where the food was this good. The presentation of the food was outstanding. It started with a salad which was a prelude to the rest of the course. The salad was so outstanding it tasted like desert. I can't continue with the rest as my mouth has begun salivating and I would could not do it justice. Highly, highly, highly recommend if you want to have a great meal!!!!

    Not only does Hog-It-Up have the best brisket around, Mike and Michelle Lackey are some of the nicest people around. I decided that I wanted to server brisket for Christmas dinner and contacted Michelle; she walked me through the entire process of ensuring a wonderful meal. Michelle provided some great ideas of sides to compliment the brisket. Mike had the brisket cut and vacu-sealed and all I had to do was reheat. One of the best meals I've ever had. My guests were picking at the meat before I could ever get it plated. Do yourself a favor and experience The Lackey's delicious Hog-It-Up BBQ!!

    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.
