Carmen and her team are some of the hardest working people I have had the honor to see in action. We chose An Affair to Remember to cater our daughter's wedding in Morganton because she is down-to-earth and seemed very service-oriented. If there is something we need at weddings is service. Carmen's team exceeded our expectations. For the sake of simplicity I asked Carmen to prepare a buffet. Everyone said the food was delicious. As the mother of the bride I had no appetite (except for champagne). All the food was devoured. I feel I did not take advantage Carmen's full abilities by not asking for passed appetizers or food stations. She arrived with her team around noon and stayed until 11pm to wash all our rented dishes and clean up. By the time she left our kitchen was spotless. Bravo, Carmen. The only thing I would add for someone who has never had a caterer: buy your own ice. It was an oversight on my part and assumed caterers brought it. Thankfully I had a willing guest happy to run out for it. Another thing: We had a cheesecake wedding cake and I was worried about cutting it. Carmen stepped in and said she would cut it and set out the coffee service at the same time. She helped make our wedding wonderful.

Michelle's service and response time has been outstanding!! She has worked with me and my budget and has been able to offer excellent suggestions as well as been willing to facilitate my needs with a limited budget and time constraints!! I will write another review after the actual event but as of right now, hands down, she is amazing. After talking to several other caterers, I knew she was the one... encompassing excellent customer service, flexibility, creativity and willingness to help in a way that the other caterers were not. Thank you Michelle!!

Ordered catering from Tonya for a conference. Good food but ran out of chicken, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese before all people were served.

Right from the start Sue was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to my questions as I was deciding on who to cater my daughter's wedding. Her confidence and accommodating manner won me over and I decided to go with Roosterdoodles for the big day. The selections to choose from for my menu were incredible. There was so much to choose from. I was able to choose just the perfect mix of food for the guests we were having. She made a trip to Clifton Park to meet me, see the venue,and offereed suggestions as to the table set up, etc. AS we neared the day, she responded with confirmations and asked if there was anything else she could help me with, like the cake and favors. I described the cake I was looking for and she said she could do anything. I decided to go with her for it, so she did everything. IShe offered some suggestions I did not want and I was very specific about what I wanted and she gave me exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, she arrived with a small crew and delivered. She called to let me know exactly when she would be arriving and was on time. She and her crew worked the whole event, tending to the buffet and preparing the dessert table and clearing the buffet food. The presentation was gorgeous for everything, very classy. The mediterranean platter was unbelievable. The beef brisket was so tender, not tough like you often get with large quantities. The chicken was also incredibly tender and juicy, just perfect. The flavors of her sauces were mouth watering and obviously home made. The food was delicious. Everyone at my table all ask who catered. THey said it was the best wedding food they ever had. One guest said he rarely saw the quality of food that we had and he is global traveler by trade. Later that day and even the next two days, as I ran into friends and family, everyone commented on how amazing the food was. Some attended a wedding at a very popular country club in the area and they all agreed that my wedding was superior, both in the event itself and in the food. Susan's price was very reasonable, the service was excellent, and the food was out of this world. The cake was something like I had seen on pinterest. It was exactly what I wanted, even better! I will definately use Susan again. I can't wait to taste her other dishes. I may even make a trip to Cairo to visit her cafe. I know it would be worth the trip. I highly recommend Roosterdoodles for your event. You won't regret it!

Liane and her team were beyond amazing. Bartenders were prompt, friendly, dressed neat and tidy, and went above and beyond our expectations. Liane was very helpful and you could tell she knew her stuff after our first conversation. We met to go over the logistics and she asked every question you would hope an event coordinator would ask, she even asked about some things we hadn't thought about - which is incredibly helpful when you're planning a wedding on your own - it was a huge sigh of relief to have something taken off of your plate and know it would be handled exactly as you wanted. I had tons of things on my mind on my wedding day that I was worried about, Liane and her team were not one of those things. You'll be hard-pressed to find an event planner with the superb level of service that Liane offers. 10/10, would highly recommend.

I had Catherine cater a birthday brunch for me and a couple girlfriends and it was amazing! Not only is she very personable, she made sweet potato biscuits that I could have eaten 100 of! I am hiring her again to help with a bridal shower and would recommend her without hesitation for any small event you may have. The Cook Nook has delicious food and is delightful to work with!

I used Divine Cultural Cuisine for a private dinner party for 4. The Chef showed up on time with all the equipment. He was very careful and precise in cleaning his work area before and AFTER dinner. The party started at 7 pm and he showed up around 615pm to start prep work. Our menu was amazing and I am still full while typing this review. It consisted of Savannah calamari and crab stuffed shrimp as an appetizer. The portions were huge. We literally had to tell him to take the plate from us or we wouldn't have been able to eat the entree or dessert. I have to add, he applied some "orange sauce" to the shrimp that I literally would drink a bucket of. Chef Reeves is a saucier by trade so he knows what he is doing. Next, we were served a mixed green salad with a warm raspberry hazelnut dressing which was divine. Our main course was a surf and turf menu of orange soy glazed salmon and NY strip with mixed veggies and potato cakes. I don't know where to start. The steak was cooked perfectly. Salmon was cooked so well that I am troubled that I may never be able to cook salmon in my household again. And this orange soy glaze. He wouldn't tell us the ingredients but we tried to bribe him an undisclosed amount of money which he politely refused. I personally like grits so he made a side dish of his grits. They were the best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I am born and raised in the South. Just a wonderful meal from this point that was about to blow our minds. For dessert, might I add I don't even remember when he prepared it as we were stuffing our faces, creme brulee cheesecake with a white chocolate sauce and red velvet cake shooters with fresh fruit. The entire meal was better than I ever expected. My only regret is that we didn't know Chef Reeves and Divine Cultural Cuisine when we were getting married as we surely would have had him cater for us. We will be reaching out to him. We will be using him in the future and I truly believe if you have read all of this review up to this point, you will use him too.

What more can I say. Reuben and his staff were spot on with their food quality, service and professionalism. Our son from Colorado was getting married in our backyard and we had never used a caterer in Charlotte before so we went into the job totally blind. You never know what to expect but we were so pleasantly surprised. The mac and cheese was great and the jalapeño cornbread was over the top. We even gambled by having them do breakfast the next morning and it was delicious!! They were so professional and courteous and we had so many compliments. Looking forward to using them for our next event!!

Total Events made our wedding everything we dreamed it would be. Trisha is thorough and has an amazing attention to detail. She thinks of everything, which made my job as the bride a breeze! She really listened to what we wanted and made our day exactly how we had envisioned it. More than that, she cared about us as a couple and made us feel so special. Would recommend Total Events to anyone for their big day!

Wrap it up is sure to be the best hit food at a party or gathering. Starting with the spicy deep fried eggs, onto the buffalo chicken wrap finishing up with a mudslide little horn. I would choose WRAP IT UP at your next event; whether it be a family picnic to sporting event. The food is delicious. The staff is friendly and overall great hospitality.

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.
