I would like to thank Miranda catering for catering our son's graduation party. Mike and Trish were the only one who responded with interest in doing my event and worked with me all the way. We had a buffet style dinner. The food was delivered to the event on time and it was delicious. The menu was just right and enough to go around . I had excellent feedback from all our guests. We were a bit short on drinks ( because kids love to drink) but we made through it. Miranda Caterers work hard to make my event successful. They are awesome people and I would work with them again.

Stone Hill Catering is an absolutely amazing company. Their food is to die for... It was the best wedding entree I have ever had. Their prices are like no other and they treat you like family. I have had so many comments on how great their food was for our wedding of 153 people specifically their homemade mashed potatoes! I have recommended them to every engaged couple I know!

The food was delicious, and the Catering Staff were very friendly, the only issue that we had was a difference in quoted price verse actual price. They were 300.00 over what we were quoted, but I think that was due to some plates being changed.

3 Tables Catering catered my wedding. I could not have made a better choice. I cannot tell you how amazing they were throughout the entire process. Most of the time with weddings you are given a set menu where you can choose, say, three out of five options to offer your guests. 3 Tables Catering asked what kind of food I wanted to offer and what kind of price range we were looking for then made a list of options specifically suited to my husband and I. It was such a personalized and wonderful way to plan the food for our wedding. I don't know of anyone else that offers such a personalized menu. Not only did they do such a great job with the food but they helped out with every aspect I had questions about. I went without a wedding planner and let me tell you these guys were such a wealth of information and connections. They found us a bartender, helped us figure out how much wine we needed to order, had contact info for bakers and rental places. Anything and everything I had questions about they either helped or found someone to help. On the day of the wedding there were some issues with the venue owner and they didn't let me hear a word of it. They handled everything and made sure I didn't have to stress or worry about a thing. When it was time for the main event the food was outstanding. Not only did they make the food on site and not days before but they made sure some drinks and some appetizers were saved for my husband and I as we were getting pictures taken. They really have those small personal touches that pushes them above and beyond any other caterer I've encountered. I cannot tell you how wonderful the chefs were with absolutely everything leading up to and during my wedding. Hiring 3 Tables Catering and Food Truck was the best decision I made for my wedding. No matter what event you are planning, these guys are the people you want to have on your side and making your food. If I could give them more than five stars I would.

I have used Kara for two events and our third event is scheduled with her in 6 months. All of the events involved a unique menu that we requested. Kara is an outstanding individual to work with on an event. The quality of service she provides is excellent. Her diligent attention to all the details of the meal sets her apart. The food was delicious and served at the proper temperature. She anticipated our needs and was working to fulfill those needs even before we asked. We look forward to working with her again!

I had a large outdoor social for about 40 people last year, Travis had prepared a wonderful assortment of finger food, dips and some great BBQ. The quality and presentation was outstanding. I felt like the cost for Top Shelf Catering was easily justified

I was very impressed with the service I received from Wooden Spoon. I was not expecting the uniqueness they provided to my sisters party. They created a specific theme and really catered to everything I had wanted and much more. I would highly recommend Wooden Spoon Bakery and Catering. The cake she made was amazing. Any thing you can think of she can make. I still haven't heard the end of how good the food was from family and friends that attended.

    Let me start off by saying, no matter what Wendy puts her hands on its always amazing and so delicious. Her homemade peanut better eggs, and chocolate chip cookies are to die for. I now turn my nose up to store bought cookies or peanut butter eggs. If you haven't been blessed with her yummy food , your are missing out. I do not have any pictures to post because that's how long they last at my house.

    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.
