We had Lettuce Do Lunch & Dinner come out and do drop-off catering for our company Christmas party for about 60 people. I was too busy to ever eat any of the food, but all reports were that the food was delicious. I was very happy with the price, variety, and quantity. If you have heavy eaters you may want to buy for more than your actual number of people, but the amount given was very generous for the price. Pam arrived right on time and got everything set up in a flash. We'll probably be calling again come next Christmas!

Jill Brothers is a great compliment to Mack and Kates Catering Services. She was professional, friendly and helpful. This was a very special even for my family. Everything was just perfect. She beautifully executed, and the food was delicious. During the planning stages, Jill was patience with the numerous changes we went through. She listened and paid close attention to what we needed to make it a memorable dinner party for our dad.

Kristen did an excellent job catering a small event that I hosted at my home recently. She offered some creative dishes that pleased a diverse and picky palate. Everyone raved about the food. One guest even wants to use Kristen to cater an upcoming event their hosting. I would definitely hire her again! Thanks Kristen.

Shane and Angela catered our outside wedding at our home. Their prices were very competitive so we chose them as our caterers for this event (we priced 3 different catering companies). They were on time, set-up, and worked the food line serving the guests during the reception. We had to dodge a few thunderstorms and honestly, they were able to salvage what could have been a disastrous day - they were so helpful, friendly, and just went with the flow. They also packed up all the leftovers for us and put away in our kitchen/refrigerator. They really saved the day and I can't say enough good things about our experience. Did I mention the food was awesome? All of our guests thought so, too; and I got A LOT of compliments from our guests for the food and service, everyone loved them. If I ever have another catered event, I WILL use them again. No question.

I hired Ludlow Catering for our firm's early Holiday party and couldn't have been more pleased. They did an impressive job decorating our foyer and open office space, like we'd asked. The food was excellent, our clients loved it. They over-delivered on all platforms and will certainly re-hire for like jobs in the future. Highly recommend.

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.

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!!

I booked Savoy Events to do lunches for a set of meetings at work. We had about 15-20 people for each lunch. The staff raved!!! I let Jade pick the sandwiches and desserts. Her recommendations were spot on, presentation was lovely, and when it was time to eat there was no delay. She even stayed around to make sure all was in order. It was so easy for me and nothing went to waste. Everyone was satisfied and several came by my office in the weeks to follow to find out where the food came from. Who knew cold sandwiches could taste so good. :-) I'd like for next go round to have set up a bit sooner. Since this isn't the typical drop off and go catering service it would be nice to be sure nothing feels rushed in getting things laid out and in place.

I cannot say enough good things about Crave. Not only is the food delicious, the presentation is exceptional. I have had them cater events at my home, business functions and have attended many of their community events at Crave 1201. Everyone on the Crave team works together to make sure you have a great experience. Call them for your next event. You will not be disappointed. Cathy H.

We had dinner for 15 catered. It arrived on time and hot! Our guests raved about everything, but the buttery mashed potatoes were the star (in my opinion). Lots of flavor, not your typical flavorless catered fare. Can't say enough good things about the food and the business. The owners were very responsive and a delight to work with. This was the best decision I could have made for our family Christmas dinner. I will definitely use again!

Whisked and Ready is a phenomenal catering company. I have used their services for several large cocktail parties and even an intimate lunch gathering. The food is not only delicious, but fun! It's not like anything I've seen or tasted in Nashville. Jennifer McNabb takes the time to understand exactly what type of party you are hosting and she creates the perfect menu for your event. She really gets to know the client and brings creativity to each dish. The meatballs and salted Carmel Crisps are a must for any gathering. I highly recommend Whisked and Ready.

Aundrea was awesome!!! I was working in Texas and wanted to have my daughters’ sweet 16 family dinner in her hometown,Nashville ,with friends and family. I didn’t know how I would pull it off being so far away. I found Aundrea online on thumbtack. She was the first to call and sounded enthusiastic to do the job. I looked at her reviews and they were all excellent. I told her my vision and she delivered 120% . We had the dinner at a restaurant and she handled all the coordinating of the events and the services relating to the restaurant staff. The decorations were exactly what I ask for!! I saw ideas online and in magazines and she put them together perfectly!!! I was nervous because I never met her in person until the day of the dinner!! I was praying it wasn’t gonna be a nightmare as I had paid her a deposit and had never done an event without meeting the person! She delivered!! I asked for a videographer and she arranged for all of that as well. Not to mention the videographer got all the memorable moments when I surprised my daughter with her first vehicle!! Those moments in action ,of her being surprised, and the excitement seen from all the quests will never be forgotten and I will have the video to cherish forever!!! I will definitely use Aundrea for ANY big or small events I plan in the future ( my 50th birthday is coming up next year -wink wink). I planned for 30 guests and they all were impressed with the decor and entire flow of the dinner party. Later I found out she recently bought a travel agency where she can come to anyone , anywhere and plan an event. Now that’s awesome!!! Aundrea, you rock!! And I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!! I’m glad you’re in Nashville as that’s my primary residence. The price was well worth every penny ! I believe in that saying “ you get what you pay for “ I wish you continued success in your business , Aundrea. GOD BLESS YOU! Annie

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.
