For my mom's 70th birthday, we decided to have a surprise dinner party. (For the record, I'm a professional event planner based in DC and work with a number of hotels, chefs and caterers.) After talking to Chef Nico for less than a minute, I knew he was the one for this special occasion. He came up with a super creative menu, was attentive to every detail, and enchanted all of the dinner guests. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

Two Brothers Catering was nothing short of amazing at our wedding! The food was excellent in taste, quality and quantity. Brad was very patient and accommodating while listening to my ideas. He also did very well when we decided to change the menu a couple of months before the wedding. All 250 of our wedding guest raved about how much they loved the food. Pricing was very reasonable for the ratio of food to people. I specifically wanted a buffet style/stations style dining but in an elegant manner. Two Brothers Catering made it possible. I would recommend them to anyone! Thank you for making our special day everything we could ever ask for. -The Macias family

Joe catered my husband's 50th birthday party. The food was amazing, and my friends are still talking about the beef tenderloin and duck wontons. From set up to clean up, the service was unbelievable.

Our company had customers visiting and we needed lunch for them and the whole shop. I found Hargett Music, Sound & Catering on Thumbtack and made the call. I needed food for about 40 people. The food was delicious and tasted like grandma's home cooking! I will definitely call on them again. Everyone gave it a big thumbs up!!

As an event planner, I tend to work with a lot of caterers. Chef Mei is one of my favorites because her attitude is always positive and she's full of energy. I also doesn't help that her food is delicious and that she's very flexible when designing a custom menu. Just Jenny Designs & Events enjoys working with Mei and her staff at events!

I hired Chrystal to cater a luncheon for 25 people. She came and setup buffet along with utensils. We ordered wings sandwiches and salads. Food presentation was excellent. Will recommend.

Simply scrumptious are the absolute best caterers I have ever used hands down! The food is amazing. They cook any type of food you can imagine. The shrimp and grits and the roast chicken were to die for. I have used them for cookouts, graduation parties, work events, and birthday parties. They are always prompt and professional.

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.
