James and his team from the Frog & Turtle Pub catered our evening VIP Grand Opening for our new business in Westbrook. I had heard wonderful things about James's catering, and when arriving in Westbrook, was thrilled to discover that the Frog & Turtle was just across the street! The party was from 6-8 in the evening. James's crew, respectful of the fact they were entering a work environment, arrived no earlier than 4. They had already established a clear idea of where they would be setting up their stations, and most of the food prep had been done ahead of time. James, Matt and Megan were friendly and professional. Once the party got going, they made sure that food and drink were easily accessible. And everything was delicious. I received many compliments on the food and service, both at the party and afterward. I have managed and cooked for many catering jobs in my culinary career, and it is not a job I would wish on anyone that doesn't love it. It's clear that James and his team not only like what they do, but do it well and with quality ingredients. At the end of the night, Megan packed up the leftovers and left them neatly bagged for me and my guests to take home. James and his team left our space clean and organized. I would recommend James and the Frog & Turtle to anyone looking for an excellent catering service that delivers delicious food, and friendly, gracious service, at an extremely reasonable rate.

From the opening inquiry to the post-event follow up, Maine-ly Meatballs was a first rate caterer. Jeanne worked with us to create a menu and was experienced enough to guide us. The food was delicious! We had traditional marinara, Asian style with slaw and cheeseburger sliders, with sides of salad and macaroni and cheese. We had 80 guests and every single one of them raved about their balls. Additionally, Jeanne is super nice, friendly and professional. As a hostess she was in my corner, helping to be sure the party was successful.

The pasta salad was awesome to. The wait staff was professional, friendly and very accommodating. All in all it was a great experience. I would definitely use them for any of my catering needs and would recommend them to anyone else.

We used Chef Joseph to cater a very special birthday party as well as other events which people are still raving about. His professionalism, creative menu geared to our needs and pocketbook are to be commended. We loved his food and would not hesitate to hire him again.

Having worked for Tom on several catering jobs I can testify to the fact that he simply cooks absolutely delicious food. Whether for a dinner party for eight or a wedding reception for over 100, his organizational and culinary skills combine to produce results that impress everyone. It is a joy not only to work for him, but also to eat his cooking.

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.
