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.

Kristen has catered the Christmas party for our office for the last 7 years. With each year she has surpassed our expectations. Not only is her food incredible but also the way she presents the food and tells us about how she prepared it. I highly recommend Kristen for any catering occasion. The best Chef I have ever encountered. Kristen is a very passionate Chef and her meals prove it.

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!!

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!

The JP design team was a fantastic team to work with. Aundrea was able to execute my vision perfectly. She and her team took the time to understand my vision and style and worked very closely with me to deliver exactly what I wanted, while still staying within my budget. They were responsive, detail oriented, professional and graceful throughout the whole process and the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend this company to any bride looking for beautiful décor, styling, or food for their wedding.

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.
