Dominick did a good job with the catering. The food was delivered on time & arranged well. It was fresh & delicious. The one thing that would have taken it to 5-stars is if the chicken was boneless & the fish was cut into serving size portions. Thank You!

Dealing with Greg Lutz with a Catered Affair was a pleasure. Greg always responded back to my messages sent and he responded very quickly. The service and food was excellent. All the staff I encountered with A Catered Affair were very nice, perfessional and they made my party a very enjoyable event. I have used caterers before but after dealing with A Catered Affair I will not use anyone else. I would recommend them to anyone because I know they will do an excellent job. Thanks again Catered Affair!!

The food was amazing! We chose the simple cold cuts package and the sides were way better than expected. The caterer showed up a little early, and our reception was running late, but he had absolutely no problems waiting until we were set up and ready for the food. He set it up very efficiently and correctly. We will definitely hire them again if we ever need a caterer again!

Needless to say the food from Nibbles was delicious. In addition, the catering staff was super. They were so easy to work with and quietly and efficiently assisted in every way to make our parent's 60th anniversary party a success. We would definitely recommend Nibbles as a caterer for your special event and we look forward to going to Nibbles restaurant for dinner sometime soon.

I was looking for a traditional thanksgiving dinner on a budget to feed 90 people for a school event. The Happy Chefs LLC gave me a great deal and left an excellent impression. They were professional, arrived ahead of time and communicated very well. The food tasted really good and a lot of students particularly complimented the food. Chef Jay, his wife Mary Jo and Chef Jim were warm and polite and they stayed back to take care of replacements even though they were contracted only for a drop off. I would definitely recommend them and I know I am going to reach out to them for more projects in the future

Divine Catering & Events was nothing short of amazing when coming through for my husband and I on our wedding day. Our original plans for catering changed last minute and even though our guest list was small (approx. 50 guests) I was really concerned about the short turn around and price quote I would receive from prospective caterers. I reached out to Dabriah with Divine Catering, not only did she respond quickly and assuredly with a quote, but the prices were fair and the food was delicious! Our guest raved about how tasty everything was! Everything arrived promptly and her professionalism is second to none. We will definitely use Divine Catering & Events again in the future! Regards, Dana & Samuel Bryant

We used Brandon for our wedding caterer. We had a gourmet brunch style buffet all created by him to perfection. Guests loved the food so much that they were asking for recipes! Brandon went above and beyond. He stayed the entire day and helped serve. He even stayed and helped clean up! We are so happy that we found him and would recommend him to anyone! He is the best.

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.

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 youโ€™ll have. When youโ€™re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests youโ€™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 youโ€™re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu youโ€™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 โ€” 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.
