Damon's food will live in our hearts and memories FOREVER! It was AMAZING! He was very easy and helpful to work with. He catered to what I wanted and not some pre selected menu which was a plus! I would and did recommend him to everyone that wasn't fortunate enough to dine on his delectable offerings! I will use Damon for all my catering needs in the future! You WON"T be sorry if you choose this company! He will make it memorable!

Matt Barnes did an outstanding job of catering our party! We had 86 guests for a birthday celebration. When I first contacted him about catering the party he patiently walked me through the process and helped me plan the menu which included 7-8 different hors d'oeuvres, both hot and cold. He prepared them at our party site and they were all absolutely delicious!! The presentation was fantastic! He transformed a simple table into a welcoming buffet of food. We received so many compliments on the food and would have him cater another party without hesitation. There was plenty of food for each guest and Matt kept the tables well stocked and inviting through the whole evening! His professionalism and his friendliness made him the perfect caterer for us!

Teta's Kitchen catered an event at my home. The guests raved about the food and talked about it for several days after the event. They thoroughly enjoyed everything that was prepared. I highly recommend Teta's Kitchen!

Food was excellent. Chicken Marsala so delicious. Serving sizes robust. Greens were crisp,salad fresh and dressing light but FULL of flavor. Dinner rolls out of this world. The food arrived exactly on time and was still hot as it was served over the course of an hour. I will only use Manna Catering in the future for all my party needs. Thank you Dave. Outstanding experience. PS ... my Italians relatives were quit impressed.

What a wonderful job beyond my expectations breath taking. I did not know whether to cry or scream for joy it was so amazing beautiful literally. I had event where 3,000 people attended and every one comment on how beautiful my set up for my Catering promotion table was. It was simply elegant, exquisite, elaborate and it had the spirit of excellence. Ms Bridges was professional to the end with her service I recommend anyone to let her design for their next upcoming event.

What a refreshing change for ordinary catering! I was incredibly impressed with the quick response to my quote request and also pleased with the value I received. The food was very good and the selection fit our needs perfectly. I was absolutely blown away at the presentation of the buffet, you won’t get this feature from many caterers. It was a nice added touch. The customer service was outstanding and our event was very successful. Thank you again!

People are still talking about the food from my wedding. Sure, it tasted amazing at the initial tasting. The delicious food and Laronda''s professionalism and fun personality sold us on this vendor. But I definitely expected the food at the wedding to taste less fresh - pre cooked, you know, weddingy. Not the case. It looked beautiful, and was fancy restaurant quality fresh. It couldn't have been more perfect. My venue didn't have anything that resembled a kitchen. I dont know how they did it. Some of my fondest memories from my wedding day are chomping down on a beef short rib and rosemary garlic potato wedges. The mac and cheese - to die for. The staff was amazing and friendly and super efficient. They set everything up and broke it down before I knew it. I'm telling you - The Main Squeeze has magic catering powers. Admittedly, I was one of those high maintenance brides. The team was super responsive and patient with me. They left no concern unaddressed and no question unanswered. And all at a price that's just about the same as other local (and less highly rated) caterers. Looking back now, knowing what kind of food and service I was going to get from The Main Squeeze I would have been happy paying twice as much as I did. Totally totally worth it. Love you guys!! Thank you!

    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.
