Chef Lemar has done two events for me this month--he did a great southern bbq for my family and then a classy dinner party for my husband and I and eight friends! His food is delicious and presentation beautiful. He was very helpful in preparing the menu and overall a joy to have in our home.

Cheryl Edwards prepared, plated and served the most extraordinary 4-course dinner party at my home in August 2015. The menu she dreamed up was exquisite - quail with an amazing mushroom sauce, vegetable timbale, beef tenderloin with parsnip and potato puree, and chocolate cake with cherry sauce and fresh vanilla-scented whipped cream. One of our guests said later "I loved, loved, loved Cheryl's cooking." Cheryl was a pleasure to work with - organized, punctual, a true professional chef, who was poised in explaining each course to us and was warm and friendly. She helped us make our guests feel very special. Cheryl is a wonderful partner for having a winning event! We are so enthusiastic about the dinner party that we have already asked her to help us with a party later in the year. My husband and I cannot recommend Cheryl highly enough.

I recommend highly Maggie and Comfort Cuisine. She has helped me with dinners for business associates and all kinds of family gatherings including milestone birthdays, engagement parties, and most recently a welcome party before my daughter's wedding. It is cheaper and better than going to a restaurant. All I have to do is get the house clean and decide on a menu, and Maggie takes over. No worries. The food is delicious and her flower arrangements are incredible. Her helpers are efficient and so very nice to work with. For easy, wonderful, at home catered dinners and parties, there is no one better than Maggie and Comfort Cuisine!!

After being recommended by a friend, I decided to use T.J. Ruffins to cater for my graduation party. They did a great job! Very reliable and great communication, which was great because my guest list kept growing. Everyone loved the food and kept asking where it was from. Definitely will use them again in the future!

Fantacy event has QUALITY over Quantity. Placement of the decorations are methodical and appealing to the eyes (instant smile). They just don't throw down a bunch of balloons to fill a space which is what I do for my kids bday party. They are way elegant

    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.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
