I had a lobster bake for a group of 35. The food was delicious everyone raved that the steamers were the best they had ever tasted. Very professional and easy to work with. I really liked that she spaced out the courses and allowed us to socialize. It was not a rushed meal. I can't wait to use her services again.

John and his team were very professional!! They performed duties beyond their scope because my event planner wasn't doing her job. They all-in-all were instrumental at making sure my guests, myself and husband were well taken care of, from bringing water and a platter of food out to us when pictures were being taken, communicating with our DJ in a professional manner which in turn prompted my DJ to make a public announcement on how spectacular J & L Catering was. If I hadn't mentioned, the food was fantastic. I had great reviews from my family and friends for days/weeks. I would whole heartedly recommend John of J & L Caterers for all weddings.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a casual outdoor dinner buffet for 30 adults and 3 children. William listened to our preferences carefully and created a beautiful and delicious menu of passed hors d'oeuvres, chicken, fish, and vegetarian entrees, and a wonderful dessert table of fresh fruit, hazelnut cake and pistachio panna cotta. The food was wonderful! Many guests remarked about how good everything was. His serving team set up and served with style and charm and cleaned up beautifully. We highly recommend William and will use him again and again! He is a great communicator and chef.

Words cannot describe how happy my wife and I are with SYB Event planning and Soraya for planning an amazing 1st Birthday Party for my daughter, this past August. From the day I found her up until the party, she has been nothing but helpful, supportive and very creative. SYB Event Planning also supplied the catering to us as well, from their catering division. The food and service was very good!! All my guests were very happy on how beautiful and fun the party was. I will definitely considering hiring Soraya again for future events. Both the catering and the planning are highly recommended!

I work for a large apartment community. We decided, very last minute, to host a catered BBQ for our residents and were scrambling to find a caterer with about 2 weeks to pull everything together. I managed to find Lori on Thumbtack and she was immediately very responsive and professional. She set up a great menu for our residents and gave us an unbeatable price. The day of the event, there was a little miscommunication on what time we were to start (this is why I did not check punctuality, I wanted to be honest, but also emphasize that it was a misunderstanding and not just her staff showing up late). Her staff got here with less time than planned to set up and start cooking and they FLEW getting everything set up and ready to go. In the end, we were only behind by about half an hour and no one seemed to really notice or mind. The food was delicious, very high quality, and her staff was amazing, very efficient, kind and professional. I cannot say enough good things about this experience and would highly recommend Lori for any sort of catering event. She knows how to take care of her customers! Thank you so much Lori for making this a memorable event for our community! If we do decide to cater another event in the future, we are definitely coming back to you!

The foodie in me was wowed by Steve, yet again! He has cooked for us before, we loved him and his food so much that we had him back again. He cooked a brilliantly planned Mexican meal for four. The meal was creative, fresh (garden vegetables picked that day!) and so TASTY. It was the best taco I’ve ever had, and I’ve had LOTS of tacos from all over the world. Also the man can multitask!!!! He’s was teaching me how to make margaritas (that were delicious) while plating our meal and entertaining our guests! Also he does a fabulous job of clean up and packed up all the left overs for us. HIGHLY recommend! We love him so much we are having him cook for our wedding shower!!!

We had an Indian fusion wedding last weekend at an off-site venue, and Simply Elegant Catering did a fantastic job. We originally contacted SEC to provide full service catering and American style food, with the intent of having another restaurant provide Indian food. However, SEC’s chef offered to make the Indian food for our tasting, and it was delicious. As a result, SEC caterered both style menus. They also worked with us to develop a mostly vegetarian menu to meet the needs of the groom and many of our guests. A few of our guests actually commented that it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. Sam of SEC was very helpful and responsive, and his entire staff seemed eager to work with us to help make our event run smoothly and meet our wishes. And SEC’s services were very reasonably priced. Overall, I can’t say enough good things about SEC, and would recommend them to anyone looking for delicious food with friendly service.

I have used Buffets Inc for at least 8 years and would not use anyone else! The food is made fresh each day, the prices are reasonable, this is a family owned business and they are great to work with. I first met Mark when he was volunteering his services for a non-profit I was involved with and was impressed with him personally and professionally. I have used Buffets Inc for small meetings to large clam bakes. If I am serving lunch at a meeting the attendees will often ask if Mark is catering because they remember his food and desserts! I can't say enough good things about Buffets Inc!

Kendra catered a 50th birthday dinner for 80 people. Her food was outstanding, beautifully presented, and absolutely fresh and delicious. Her attention to detail was noticed by all my guests who immediately took her card! The beautifully presentation means as much to Kendra as how delicious her food is. I highly recommend Kendra and her staff for all your catering needs!

B&M Caterers delivered a clambake buffet to my house last summer. The gentleman who delivered the food set everything up for us before he left..... tablecloth, steam tables, serving utensils, plates and flatware. The food was amazing. Lobsters, mussels, chorisco and corn were fantastic. But the cornbread was truly amazing. There was so much food! We had plenty of leftovers. I recommend B&M Caterers to everyone I know.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
