I just wanted to take a moment and say how wonderful Modern Southern Table is. They catered my wedding last year, everything was wonderful. The food was delicious, the services was fantastic, and all my guest it enjoyed it. They turned a very stressful time into a great and memorable time. The food was amazing, and Tyler Florence was so right, The Gumbo is amazing!

    Love these guys! The Food is spectacular! You can get your street meat with a twist! One of my favorite things about seeing these guys around downtown (besides the food) is the price! For how amazing their food is you would think it was going to be super expensive, but its anywhere from 6-10 bucks! Another one of the great things about these guys, is they have a vegetarian option! I can't tell you how many times I'm downtown late night wanting a snack and the only thing these vendors have is meat... But have NO FEAR the Slamwich Brothers are here! And they will hook you up with the MiMi burger which is a veggie burger loaded with toppings on an amazing brioche bun!! Last but not least you can't beat the customer service. These guys are just genuine bros, making a living at something they love to do! So don't be scared to spark a conversation with these guys, they're outgoing and always up to get feedback from their customers. So if you're looking for some great funkin food, or looking for someone to cater your grad parties, block parties, work parties, etc., these guys are a phenomenal choice!

    Robert catered my husband's 50th surprise birthday party for 40 guests at our home in Westerville. His service, presentation and food were all exceptional. He made our special event unforgettable and all of our friends and family raved about how great the food was. Robert prepared lobster tail, shrimp and chicken Chardonnay plus sides. He interacted and mingled with family and guests and has a great and warm personality. I would highly recommend him to all our friends and family. Great job Robert!

    We had an outdoor two part event where we fed a total of 400 people. Jerome worked with us to create a great BBQ menu within our budget. The food was phenomenal and the service was great. The staff was extremely professional showing up early to set up, stayed through the entirety of the event, and cleaned up afterwards. All in all it was a great experience and I'm looking forward to working with JM Catering again.

    Our wedding was on October 22, 2016 in Lancaster, Ohio. Kevin and his team traveled from Newark to Lancaster, and even with the transport of the food, it was delicious! We had so many compliments from guests, and the staff was so polite and professional! As we passed each of them, they made a point to congratulate us and we always saw them working to make sure the food was stocked and the plates were cleared! We purchased the platinum package, and it was well worth it!

    Carrie and her staff catered my daughters wedding reception. She served an incredible meal to nearly 250 people. The food was delicious and plentiful. The plated dinner was served very quickly. Guests were impressed at how fast all tables were served. Carrie was so easy to work with and accommodated every request my daughter and I had. We recommend Carrie and will use her any time we need anything catered. ~M Helm

    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.

    We had a backyard wedding with about 120 guests and wanted something a little different for our dinner menu. Shayda helped us come up with the perfect menu for appetizers and dinner. She was very knowledgeable and was able to tell us exactly how each of our options would turn out affecting the overall dining experience. My husband loves beef bourguignon and the saffron rice dish with chicken that she made was amazingly good. She also came up with a great vegetarian option for a few of our guests. She was very patient with us as we went back and forth on a few of our options, was on time for all our meetings, was at the house and ready to prep and serve on the day of the wedding and the dinner service went exactly as we had planned. We got a ton of compliments on the food after our wedding :) Overall, we loved working with Movable Feast and would recommend them to anyone looking for top quality food with great service

    We used World Wide Catering for a baby shower and they were fantastic! It was a Cinco De Mayo theme so we had a food truck with Mexican inspired dishes. The food was delicious and the staff was super friendly. The event ended up running later than expected and they were happy to accommodate us by staying. I would recommend them and their food truck services to anyone in need of catering an event. Dishes, silverware and napkins were all provided, the menu selection was just right, and communication and scheduling with them is a breeze! It was nice to not have to clean up for once, and their prices are beyond reasonable. Thanks so much for making the baby shower and awesome event!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you find a good caterer?

      Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

      If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

      Do you tip a wedding caterer?

      Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

      How much does wedding catering cost per person?

      Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

      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.

      What should you look for in a caterer?

      A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

      • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
      • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
      • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
      • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
      • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
      • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
