My wife and I ate at Nibbles to see if we would want to hire Chef Maria for a catering event. The food was delicious. Chef Maria assured us she could create that kind of quality for catering in our price range. We hired her for an event in December and are very much looking forward to it.

I had The Happy Chefs handle a birthday celebration dinner party for 10. Chef Jay and his crew did a top-notch job. Chef Jay was great at communicating before the event. At the event the food and the service were tremendous. The guests all raved about the food and clearly had a memorable evening.There were a number of courses/interaction points and their professionalism, personal interaction,flexibility and politeness were absolutely first class. In short, it was a spectacular event and I recommend The Happy Chefs without hesitation.

We had an morning event hosted by another company. Sabrina was great and adjusted to the time limits and various challenges of the morning. She was incredibly friendly, detailed and made the whole process a breeze! I sincerely appreciated her arranging to come back to clean up even though it was not a full service catering event. The food was delicious and presented nicely. Happy to support a local business and will definitely keep her in mind for our next catered event.

Personally I. Think most BBQ isn't what I expect, you want to taste the meat and have just the right amount of smoke and spices, its hard to find, But I found that and more at the BBQ King, everything was way ubove my expectations the price the service the King himself lol, friendly environment,fantastic food, the only place I will eat BBQ for me I have to wait till he's in the area or I find where he's at, other than that its the only place I will buy from , thank you BBQ king, Keep up the assume cooking, A Patriot guard Ridder,

Charlie is awesome! Having only a day's notice, Charlie was able to work with me on creating a food menu (with certain dietary restrictions) while also providing me with a bar tender/ server, as well as plates & glassware. The day prior to my fundraiser, my caterer called and cancelled and I was stuck trying to find a new caterer that could provide a specialized food menu (no shellfish, pork, or dairy appetizers) for 30 guests as well as both a server to help set up/ close down the event and a bartender to serve drinks. In addition, I also required glassware and plate rentals. I contacted more than 20 caterers in the Cincinnati/ Kentucky area trying to find someone who could fulfill all of my requirements. Charlie responded quickly and worked with me (well past business hours) to create a personalized menu, find servers, and have everything organized. The next day, Charlie personally went to the event and did the set up to make sure that everything would run smoothly before handing off the event to one of his capable servers. Throughout the fundraiser, people came up to me and complimented the food and were pleased with the service. At the end of the night, I spoke with the host (who was unaware of any catering issues) and he thanked me for arranging the food/ service and praised Charlie & his server for the delicious food as well as leaving his kitchen clean and organized before leaving. Not only did Charlie work around a very tight schedule, but he kept me at ease throughout that very stressful day, letting me know what everything was in good hands and updating me whenever I called. Finding a caterer in the Cincinnati area that can help throw an elegant event with tasty food and great service is do-able; finding a caterer who can provide these same great services with only a day's notice is rare. I highly recommend calling Charlie for future catering needs- you will not be sorry.

I am so impressed with the quality of Lety Sanchez' cooking. Her food is definitely not the typical Mexican fare we think of. It is inventive, yet with a traditional quality that reminds her of her home and family. She is excited about her flavors and creations. Her baking is interesting, attractive and delicious. Her sauces are distinct and fresh. Her passion for cooking is evident. I work with her twice a week in a completely different circumstance and have always found her to be punctual, extremely cheerful, dedicated and very enjoyable to be around.

Excellent overall BBQ catering service. Fall off the bone BBQ ribs, hickory smoked pulled pork, and the best tasting pulled chicken sandwiches in town. Make sure you order their famous jalapeño poppers too to get your party started.

Kristie is awesome to work with. She goes the extra mile to make wedding dreams come true. If we showed her an example of something we liked she new how to get it, either by making it herself or where to get it.We had a destination wedding and Kristie came to the beach and worked so hard to get us what we wanted.We came home and had a beautiful reception. So many guests replied " it looked like something out of a magazine" it was gorgeous. Kristie spent a lot of time with us working on every detail. She even MADE beautiful hair accessories that looked like antique brooches,found mothers gifts, bridesmaids gifts, she did it all, flowers, food , music, venue, photography. There are so many decisions and details with a wedding that we couldn't have done it with out her. She is so talented and has the best ideas. I would use her services again for parties, dinners, receptions, showers, loved working with her.

Streetside 62 has excellent food for a good value. The restaurant is a terrific place to have a meal in the dining room and a cocktail on the patio. Their catering is top notch (of course it helps dealing with the owner directly). The food does not drop in quality just because it is a catering job. The 2 weddings and a few corporate events catered by Matt where very very good. Would recommend to anyone for sure.

Chef Otis is VERY knowledgeable. We organized a grilling how to class and date night for 5 couples. He dealt with a food allergy without batting an eye. The theme of the meal was Jamaican Jerk Chicken and it was amazing!!! We are already planning our next event with Chef Otis.

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.
