The Freelance Chef helped us create a lovely family Thanksgiving during a difficult time for us, and on rather short notice. The menu was exactly what we wanted, arrived more than promptly, and was absolutely delicious! We're looking forward to working with him again and trying some of his specialty dishes.

There isn't enough time/space to express how wonderful an experience I had with Darlene & Aja @ Oceanique Catering. My original caterer cancelled on me 2 days prior to my annual Christmas Party & even though Darlene wasn't planning on catering Christmas Day, she did it for me! I ordered a traditional Polish menu for 40 guests & wanted extra for everyone to take plates home & Darlene made a feast! Absolutely EVERYONE loved her cooking...her set-up was breathtaking (she even brought decorations) & she cleared/cleaned everything up as promised. Oceanique will truly be the ONLY caterer I use & not just because the food was loved by all but because Darlene is a beautiful person with a heart of gold. She could've charged me extra for only having 2 days notice (like other caterers have) but she didn't...in fact, her prices were very reasonable. Her & Aja were down-to-earth & easy to deal with. They made me extremely comfortable & wouldn't let me lift a finger. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to impress their guests. Doreen N. Farmington Hills

I worked with Cathy to plan a cooking class/meal to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. Cathy taught the girls how to make pasta from scratch! She brought two great appetizers, an artichoke dip that was the best I ever had and watermelon, tomato and basil skewers drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Simply to die for! She served roasted broccoli, a kale and spinach salad and bread. For dessert, the girls enjoyed a brownie trifle. Cathy was easy to work with and the evening was perfect. Oh, she cleaned up to! It was a blast being a bystander!! Thank you Cathy!

Nancy made a BEAUTIFUL meal for a family of 11 for Thanksgiving! She graciously listened to all of our tastes and preferences and helped us plan the meal, and she brought it to our house in beautiful dishes. Some caterers force their own vision, and she worked hard to create the meal that was the best fit for us. It was a wonderful experience, and we are so grateful for her help!

Shawn and I have attended the same church and I have assisted her cater a wedding, make home visits for ill people and celebrate holidays together. She is a strong woman of God and takes great pride in everything she prepares whether it be a paid catering event, serving others or cooking for family and loved ones. It is this exact quality that exudes in her food prep and presentation. When you taste her creations...you know that you are loved!

Jeff was a pleasure to work with. He showed up on time, with everything I had asked for, and the food was delicious. The best items were the ones he had specifically recommended, so I would advise you to be guided by his advice. I thought the pricing was extremely reasonable for the quantity and quality of the food. Thanks, Jeff!

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.
