Michael Jay helped me pull together a great food menu for our employee appreciation meeting held our job site in Redford, MI. I presented this need for him to cater the meeting on a last minute basis and he delivered over and beyond what I expected of him. He provided me with a full catering menu and he also provided excellent advice as to how to set up for this occasion. When he came to the company to deliver the food he was very prepared and well organized. Michael did what I expected him to do and that was make me look good in front of our CEO and employees. Thanks Michael Jay an Thumbtack

I highly recommend Cathy - Supper Made Simple Event and Personal Chef Service. They provided friendly and professional catering services for my daughters graduation of 300 people. The food was delicious and many people at my party asked for Cathy's information so they could have her assist at their event. An Outstanding experience!

We had a lovely experience with Golde Standard Catering. Nancy was extremely tentative and made our wedding planning incredibly easy, and relieved a lot of stress and worry. She always responded quickly and we felt like she had a personal investment in our wedding. The food was phenomenal and all of our guests continue to rave about it. If you want quality , go with Golde Standard Catering. We couldn't have had such a wonderful day without them!

When planning our wedding at The Redford Theatre, we were looking for a local catering company to help us out. Joe's Produce is within walking distance of us. We scheduled an appointment and spoke to Laura who reviewed all of our options. We liked the variety of options that they had for food as well as being able to choose our options for beer, cider, and wine. I will say that Laura probably needs an assistant because she is a very busy person, but the day of the event she handled everything very well. Our guests very much enjoyed the event. Additionally, she saved us some appetizers, to make sure we had some food to eat as we were very busy at our strolling reception. I would recommend Joe's for any occasion as they also helped with some high top tables that we used at the receptions too.

If you like healthy, homemade food this is your caterer. If you have dietary needs don't be shy or feel awkward, these people seamlessly accommodate. Thinking outside the box is their specialty when it comes to flavor. Nothing mediocre about this food. Presentation is fabulous, eye-opening to say the least, almost too appealing to dive into but go for it! Great variety offered even for a week-long event. Definitely not their first rodeo. Excellent customer service. Articulate and professional. Chances are there will be a speed bump along the way but how a business rebounds is crucial to me and keeps my business.

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.

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 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.

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.
