I was thrilled with Amazing Caterers! I had a birthday party for a group of 30 and I used Amazing Caterers, a caterer I had not worked with before. Thus, I was quite nervous. However, there was no need to fret. The food was fabulous and Kelly, the server, was truly exceptional. Since the event was such a success, I will be planning another one soon! Have already picked out the items from Amazing Caterers great menu!

Tatering catered a party we just had last weekend. Marc made it so easy and the food was delicious. I highly recommend everything we ordered, the brisket and chicken were moist and flavorful, and the potato salad and beans were excellent. Marc delivered everything right on time and told us everything we needed to know to keep the food throughout the party. I highly recommend Tatering and will definitely use them again. Thanks Marc!

Luke was amazing and he did an incredible job making a dinner party so easy and seamless so I could entertain our guests and enjoy the night. The food was over the top and he curated a perfect menu. He also put up with an 8 week old puppy nipping at his feet while he was cooking and it never bothered him at all!

Chef cassy served my engagement party for 15 people. We had her amazing bacon roll ups for appetizers. The ribeyes were served as each of my guest requested them and without any issues. The mango salsa on the salmon was delicious. She brought a server to help her, and he exceeded my expectations; he was super friendly and courteous. The meal was cooked at my house and she left everything just like she found it in the kitchen, very organized and clean. Overall I was very pleased with her service, and will definetly refer her to all my family and friends. I want her at my wedding!!

I recently held a retirement party for my husband and myself and hired Meat and Greet for the event. What I wanted was a casual meal and one where I didn't have to do anything but mingle with my guests. Meat and Greet came through for me. All of my guests were quizzing me about the caterers and where I found them. The food was absolutely delicious and even though I didn't get to eat right away, too busy socializing, by the time I got a plate, everything was still hot. The servers were polite and friendly to my guests, it was a wonderful experience. I would recommend this company to anyone.

I hired Chef Claudine after frantically searching for a personal chef for a last minute dinner party for my clients 50th Birthday. Thank God I found Chef Claudines Page, I called her and she immediately went into action with a menu that was perfect for the elegant St Patricks Day themed party. She was there on time and we worked together successfully. The client even asked her if she would consider being a live in chef and in their words this must be what it feels like to be a millionaire . The guests raved about Chef Claudine and loved her popovers. They found their way to the kitchen to talk over the recipe and she eagerly shared it with them. Im confident I will be working many more events with Chef Claudine

We needed a brunch for a Sunday wedding day. Spiced Lavender was easy to work with and accommodated the specific menu my daughter wanted. We arranged drop off service but when Nina arrived and saw us trying to split up the food for the workers and bridal party, she took over and got it done for us, preserving a beautiful presentation. The food was highest quality and delicious. Much more than I had expected. Thank you, Spiced Lavender!

The food we ordered was great and everyone complimented the flavoring! She not only delivered the food and just dropped it off as we agreed upon. Chef AJ also helped my sister set up and get the pans started warming up. We had looked for other caterers that would just supply what we needed and not want to add on sides and things that we did not need. She responded with a good price quote and a list of only what we needed! I would recommend her to anyone needing no hassle catering at a good price!

We had a New Year's Eve party, and Mell's food was the star of the show. So delicious!! He was super-responsive throughout the planning process and helped us estimate the food almost to the exact plateful, so there was no waste but nobody left hungry. Mell is my new go-to caterer.

Connor and his team first catered a party at my home for about 50 people. He came up with a great menu for my "fall" theme, he was extremely responsive and flexible, and very reassuring about all details leading up to the event. The night of the party everything went perfectly and I didn't have to lift a finger- it was the first time in ages that I have enjoyed hosting a party. His team is professional and a pleasure to work with. The guests raved about every detail from the beautiful display to the original fall cocktail. This party was so wonderful that I asked Connor to help me with my daughters Barbie Birthday Brunch the next weekend. He again pulled together a deliciously pink menu that was a big hit. I look forward to my next party with Connor and Ashley!

We had the BEST experience with Islanders Food Truck! Communication was beyond great previous to the event and then everything went as smoothly as possible the day of. So glad I hired them instead of hassling with getting food bought and prepared for the party! Affordable and unforgettable! Everyone raved about the food. So delicious. Will be using them again in the future!

Chef Tim was a great teacher and host for our team building activity. He listened to my requests, provided ample time for my team to prepare food and socialize, and was in budget. It was a memorable experience. You can feel confident in hiring Chef Tim for your next private party, catering event, or in my case team building event/cooking class.

I was impressed with Kim’s professional expertise, and have also had several conversations with her about her years of catering experience, from private dinner parties like mine to weddings and conference events for several hundred people. I would recommend Kim and her company “Provisions” to anyone looking for a new resource for personalized and delicious catering.

Chef Josh and his hard working wife made my party for my friend and my Team; a great experience. They stayed through the whole party and picked up after my guests. All the trash was taken care of , and the Tacos were a huge hit. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a hard working team, and awesome food. Lastly, he made a watermelon with "MMA" carved out as we are mostly members of Team Checkmat Dallas, and we all had a blast. Thanks Chef. Osss

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.
