I cannot say enough about how great it was to work with Mack and Kates!! Jill Brothers and Jan Strawn were incredibly helpful during the planning process. When they arrived to set up, it wasn't just "where do you want everything." Instead, they offered great suggestions about how to set up based on their knowledge and expertise, and they asked me "what is your vision for this party?" I never thought about a catering company actually helping you achieve your vision for the party! It was so above and beyond my expectations. And I haven't even mentioned the food yet!! I am still dreaming about the grits cubes with pimento cheese and bacon--they were heavenly! My fiancé at an entire plate of the mac & cheese, and all of our guests were asking "who is the caterer?!"

Kristin has catered several parties for us over the past few years, each with about 40 guests. Each time, Kristin's creations have been inventive, creative, and absolutely delicious. The service was well timed and executed perfectly. Kristin was also very helpful in recommending waitstaff and bartenders to assist with the service. Hiring Kristin to take care of the menu takes a lot of the pressure of hosting a party off of me - I know the food and service will be a highlight of the event.

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.

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to our wedding meal Brandy. You and your team offered wonderful options for each course and everyone at the wedding loved the food. One of the comments we hear consistently about our wedding is how great the food was and we could not agree more. Brandy was fabulous to work with and she promptly responded to any questions I had as we were finalizing details. Also, Brandy put together a "picnic basket" with our wedding food for my husband and I to enjoy after our wedding and it was wonderful :) Finally, the bartenders and wait staff that were at our wedding were both personable and professional. We absolutely recommend Brandy and Beyond Details!! -Allie and Coby From the Mother of the Bride... I met with Brandy several months before our daughter's wedding for a second tasting, the first one was with our daughter and fiancé only. I was absolutely blown away by the tasty offerings. My husband could not attend the tasting but said his only condition in choosing a caterer was that the food must be of high quality and absolutely outstanding. Brandy offered both. We instantly decided to go with Brandy that evening and never regretted it. She and her team are top notch and they offered everything we expected and more. The food was presented beautifully and the temperature was perfect. Our guests were awe of our menu selection. Everyone was impressed! We loved working with Brandy and we highly recommend her. -Ginny

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!!

Chef B was amazing! She was promptly on time, super courteous, and best of all, the food/service was incredible. Having the most perfectly timed service and dinner in the privacy of your own home, with Chef B at the reins was a wonderful experience... And one we hope to have again soon! So, if all that isn't enough, she left our kitchen cleaner than it was when she got here. Truly a marvelous evening, dinner and one we would recommend to anyone looking to do something uniquely special with their loved one!!!

I had the pleasure of hiring Sandra several years ago and was extremely pleased with everything. She made the entire process so simple and stress free, and the food was fabulous! I am hiring her again for a reception at the end of this month in my house for approximately 80 people and she has made the selection process so easy, giving great advice and guidance on the planning, and will make that evening so stress-free for us. Her prices are fabulous and she is completely involved during the whole process. Would highly recommend!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    How much should catering cost for a wedding?

    The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

    • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
    • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
    • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
    • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

    How do you serve food at a wedding?

    Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

    • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
    • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
    • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
    • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
    • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
