Granny's Family Catering did the catering for our wedding rehearsal dinner. We seriously could not have picked a better caterer. The prices were very reasonable, there was plenty of food, and the flavor was incredible. We had the herb crusted chicken, au gratin potatoes, and green beans. The chicken was so full of flavor and tender. I am a sucker for au gratin potatoes but these were by far the best I have every had. The green beans were great! There was enough food to have lunch the next day before the wedding and it all still had the same great flavor!

After loosing our original wedding caterer, we looked to this site and found the FIG! Two months before the wedding we contacted Josh and he responded quick and often making sure all the details were sorted out. He even got our keg and took it back the day after! During the ceremony the tent covering the buffet tables was blown away by the wind and the team helped clean up to make sure cocktails got out & the food was great! The rice, stew and desserts were delicious, authentic and fresh! Thumps up! Great friendly people and a joy to communicate with and have at our wedding! Thank you FIG team, especially to Josh and Quentain.

We have used buttercream cakes and catering many times. First off...the cakes are amazing, the buttercream is the best we have ever had, and I would buy buckets of it if it were available. Secondly, the cakes are beautiful...always above and beyond what we ever had in mind. We recently had BCC cater a 50th anniversary party, the food was...shall I say TOO good?!? we couldn't stop eating! Ann was open to our suggestions and the final menu was perfect. We didn't have to lift a finger, which meant we were free to enjoy our family and the celebration. I find myself trying to plan parties just so we can have BCC!!! Ann and her staff are so nice, so very talented and I would recommend them to everybody. Without a doubt!!!

    Stephen is a professional foodie and pleaser with attention to detail as to assisting with a small dinner party or a large affair. He has the "chops' to make things happen. He's a big city guy acclimated to the country/beach lifestyle. He has helped me on a couple occasions. My guests raved about the food. He's budget conscious and able to work with you to achieve the desired result. He's reliable. And the restaurant is innovative, flavorful and fun as I look in his refrigerated display case to see what new culinary delight is available to take home. Stephen and Backstreet Café are winners and always meet or exceed my expectations.

    Ann has catered many events for me, from small women’s retreats to house concert crowds of up to 60 people. To put it simply, she is the reason I was able to relax and enjoy these events (in my home). Her food is wonderful, creative and healthy and she caters to special diets beautifully (we’ve had them all). And when it’s over and I go into my kitchen it is always spotless. She is THE BEST!

    We found Awesome party planners on line as we planned for our daughter's weeding. We were coming from out of town. We planned with Awesome party planners over the phone with Garnett. She was very helpful and professional. The food was awesome and so was the service. Garnett and her staff was very friendly and helpful. The prime rib was to die for. I was very impressed with Awesome party planners. I really didn't know what to expect especially since I did all the planning on the phone but it turned out great. All our guests love the food and the service.

    Jamie Finley of Carolina Catering recently provided the food and decor for our daughter's wedding at Huntington Beach State Park. Jamie was outstanding in pulling together a plan to turn a plain picnic shelter into a beautiful wedding venue. She planned and provided all the needed decor and linens, as well as the food and beverages. The menu she suggested was perfect and every item was delicious. The guests left raving about the beautiful setting and especially the food. Jamie is friendly, efficient, and worked tirelessly to make every detail perfect. I highly recommend her services.

          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.
