My wife had just received a promotion with her company and we had planned a celebration dinner with family and friends. Our original catering company had double booked us, causing us to search else where. We found Carol Scott, and she rose to the occasion in style, elegance, sophistication, and above all class! Our menu had already been chosen, and we were worried due to the short notice that there may be issues in fulfilling our needs. This couldn't be farther from the case. We had Tuna Niçoise salad, an outstanding and perfectly prepared Seared scallop, the most desiccant Rack of lamb seasoned just right, and a Vanilla bourbon creme brûlée that people only read about!!! There were 16 of us there, and everyone was impressed with the arrangement, service, and above all Top Chef quality of her dishes. Where one company failed, she has now gained the business, demand, and above all high respect for her ability, and capability to produce such an experience in such short time! We are now guests for life in any kitchen, establishment our home she is invited into. Thank you for the shear awesomeness you have let us experience on such a grand occasion!

    On August 4, 2018, Moe's catered a dinner party for 40 people at my home. They prepared and served pulled pork, beef brisket, potato salad, baked beans and slaw. Every item was outstanding. Josh and his assistant arrived at my home on time, did all the set up and clean up, were flexible on the exact serving time and were courteous and professional throughout the evening. They seemed to enjoy themselves and we certainly enjoyed the quality of our service and food. Moe's BBQ and sides are a distinct cut above any of their competitors. My guests were impressed. The evening could not have gone better. I will look forward to using them for future events.


    We constantly hear from our clients comments like: "I've never liked this food before, but this is fantastic!" and "how much would you charge for this recipe?" and "such and such never eats at these events, but that's his/her second plate!". It's very satisfying hearing these types of things and is why we smile so much while we work.


    It is time to go back to what I do well. I would love to show off my talents to you. I've been working in the Senior Living Field as executive chef and have become stagnated. Do you need a talented chef with a personality? My experiences include weddings up to 1200 guests, business meetings, receptions, etc. I have references and will meet with you to discuss your needs.

    Our services range from informal get-togethers to the most elaborate banquets and weddings in Knoxville. Service and presentation are as important to us as the made-from-scratch food and beverages we prepare. We can adapt your favorite family recipes for that special added touch.

    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.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
