Ed was extremely focused on the details of our situation. In prior years of our banquet which has 650 guests annually we always had long lines and wait times. We are a non-profit ministry and we were needing a price that matched what we were paying as well. Ed looked at the layout of the building 2 times before the event and set up double the serving lines we have had in the past with smart setup of which type of foods you allow guests to pick and what they serve as well as placement of drinks. There was literally no lines and the food was great and no more then what we paid before. Don't let the non-franchise, private operation fool you. He knows the catering business and is a honorable and great man to work with.

Luke did a great job catering a sit-down dinner for my daughter's bachelorette weekend. He responded to my initial inquiry promptly and was easy to communicate with via e-mail and text as we planned the menu. The girls wanted to float around the pool and enjoy a few adult beverages during the day, but wanted a restaurant-quality meal that evening without having to worry about dressing up or driving. Luke arrived promptly and served a great meal with a choice of lamb chops or filet mignon as the primary proteins. The meal included a sushi appetizer, salads & sides, and a yummy dessert of creme brulee. He cooked, cleaned, and rolled with the punches with this rowdy group of 8 ladies and they all had a great time and enjoyed the meal. We will definitely hire Luke again for other dinner parties at the house.

I sent out a request for catering proposals on the Sunday night before my Saturday event which is very short notice to say the least. Meat & Greet BBQ Catering was one of three proposals received within 30 minutes and we had everything finalized by 1pm the next day. I was extremely pleased with Jim Carroll's response time and professionalism with the catering agreement and invoicing. I had drop-off catering but he went above & beyond on the delivery end as well. He cut the brisket upon arrival to insure it was the juiciest when served. The food and service were absolutely outstanding!! Jim is at the top of my list for future events.

Chef Jared came through for me BIG TIME! I called him on a Tuesday night at 6:00pm for a catering event on Wednesday at 11:30am for 35 people! Chef Jared came through with BBQ none the less. We had so many compliments from our customers on the food alone. We have his number now and we will definitely will be using Chef Jared for all of our business events along with some personal events.

Tony was absolutely amazing from the very beginning, since the first message I received from him he showed him his professionalism, patience and his true passion for his catering business. He always responded to every single question I had with a smile, and I had A LOT. He always reassured me that he was going to make my wedding day a special day, and he did, even with some obstacles due to having a small kitchen at the venue I picked, and having very little time to setup, he made everything worked to perfection, the food was delicious, he made sure me and my husband got something to eat at our wedding! I was full just after eating the appetizers since they were of very generous size. His staff was incredible too. He truly seemed thankful for giving him the opportunity of being part of our wedding, but I'm the one that's thankful for having found Tony. You definitely get your money worth, and compared to what others caterers want to charge and for less food, you will get more than what you are paying for. I foresee and wish much success in the future for Tony's business.

Cari catered an open house event that we had. She did an awesome job. Prior to the event, Cari made sure to stay in contact with updates and to confirm the headcount. The food was amazing. Our guests were so pleased and gave many compliments. The Martini Glass Humus Trio was a big hit! I would recommend The Divine Dish to anyone searching for an amazing caterer.

If you are looking for a World Class catering company that delivers high quality food and service then look no further. Evan and The Bite will "eat" the competition when it comes to Service and Quality. The team that did our event were efficient, professional, consistent, and when extra miles to ensure everyone received the same food throughout the night. We highly recommend The Bite and Evan's world class team for your event.

Gabrielle catered my baby shower and it was absolutely wonderful! The food was delicious! Even the meat eaters were raving about the food (especially her jackfruit 'chicken' and waffles)! Such a professional, and even the layout of the food was beautiful. Would definitely have her cater another event!

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.
