Dana was exceptional to work with from the beginning. He kept my mind at ease and was enjoyable to work with through out the entire process of planning our wedding. Dana catered a mid size wedding that was held in our back yard. I was unsure at first how he would be able to pull off serving over 50 people in our backyard but he did it perfectly. I heard several of my guests say that it was the best meal that they ever had at a wedding. He made my life easier and helped create a beautiful wedding. I normally do not write reviews for people or businesses unless it is highly deserved. I would highly recommend Lily Pad Catering for your catering needs.

I hired Heavy Smoke to cater my wedding. What an amazing dinner. We had heard about the food and went to a BBQ cookoff to try some of the things they make to see if it was something we would like to pursue at the wedding. My mouth didn't know what hit it. We chose the brisket and pulled chicken and what a crowd pleaser this was. We had a picnic style wedding and Heavy Smoke not only cooked the meat, but they made their famous baked beans, salad, and a wonderful special recipe cole slaw. Minus the "I do's", this was honestly the highlight of the wedding. I spent more time answering questions about where I found them than I did about the wedding. :) I was very happy that everyone had such a wonderful BBQ dinner, and was very impressed with the way the guys handled the catering side of things. It was display that was very well put together, and certainly worthy of any wedding. Not a soul went home hungry. Great stuff and great guys. We are thinking about a redo very soon. Thank Heavy Smoke!!!

They have catered for a family gathering recently, after trying the food truck at my work. Needless to say, they thought of ALL the little things that I didn't, and even came in clutch when I ran out of drinks at no added cost! Very responsive to emails, explained everything well, were more than willing to work with my budget! I will absolutely have them out again!

Natina was prompt, well planned as well as full of ideas that we had not even thought of during our initial consultation. When it came to our ideas, Natina was very patient and she listened to all of our requests and executed them all to our liking. The food was amazing! It was far beyond our expectations. Noirblanc is my #1 choice for any future events. Thanks Again!

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.
