Jan and Jill were very helpful and professional. At the last minute we had issues with our prior caterer and they did a wonderful job on short notice to feed our large office of close to 400 for the holidays. We will definitely be using them again!! The food was amazing and I have had so many people in the office compliment the service and food.

The Go Go Gourmet provides excellent catering services with a variety of delicious items on their menu. My favorites are the old-fashioned chicken salad (which reminds me of the chicken my grandmother used to make) and the chicken casserole (perfect for serving for small...or large...dinner gatherings!). The signature desserts are 'sweet music' to this Southern girl! Go Go Gourmet is the perfect caterer for any event.

Chris was a professional through and through. Talking to him about options for food was simple and he has plenty of delicious options to choose from! He was great in setting up at the venue. And of course, his food was delicious! All the guests raved about his food! It was all just a fantastic experience, I couldn't have asked for better!

I contacted Chef Casandra with a catering idea for a unique birthday party... an afternoon High Tea! She got right to work researching the traditional menus and history of High Teas. She was quick to respond with suggestions and took my initial concept to a whole new level! Chef Casandra took care of everything from the serving trays to rentals to the food (of course) and even hand-selected the assortment of tea offerings. Her creativity and professionalism are superb... not to mention, the food! Everything was so delicious! My guests left impressed, delighted and -- most importantly -- full! I will absolutely work with Chef Casandra again and will be quick to recommend her to anyone seeking an amazing catering chef. Thank you, Chef Casandra, for making my birthday one to remember!!

Everything was great from start to finish. Marty is a true pleasure to work with! Changing names from Main Event to Classic Southern Catering was a good idea in my opinion. The new name describes this business perfectly!

Greg with Sultry Soul catered our son's first birthday party. Everything he did for us was amazing! He made three dishes for us as we requested. My favorite was the broccoli bites! They are like fried broccoli casserole with a little kick! He was there promptly, made everything fresh, and cleaned up quickly. Along with all of these things he is extremely professional and friendly. We will be contacting him again for our wedding and our other catering needs. Thanks for everything!

The whole staff is gracious, quiet and unobtrusive as we have our meetings - even while they are able to remove dishes from our tables and such without even being noticed. The food is tasty, generous and always ready right on time. Tables are beautifully set and entire place is very clean and welcoming.

    Our company has been enjoying catering from Eat Well since January and we are loving it! It's tough to find catering that is budget friendly, flavorful, and healthy and with Eat Well, we can check all of those off of our list! With all of the options provided, we are able to cater to the dairy sensitive, vegetarians, and paleo folks in our office without sacrificing anything else for the others. We will certainly continue using Eat Well's catering services and recommend them to anyone looking for delicious and healthy options!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
