Vicki was a great pleasure to work with. She provided the perfect menu for the celebration of life picnic we had after my father's funeral. He always said he wanted a good party when he passed, and we were able to grant that wish with Vicki's help. She was quick to adapt when my family and I decided against using a full service caterer, and then again when the celebration ended up being smaller than originally anticipated. I also appreciated her expertise as she made suggestions for a color scheme and possible changes to the menu based on the season and cooler weather. Overall Vicki was personable and professional. And... the food was fantastic! I enthusiastically recommend Vicki to anyone who is in need of catering services.

We hired Rex and Cathy to provide a dinner for our wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic! We aren't from Salt Lake originally, but wanted to get married here. Unfortunately, this meant we didn't have a whole lot of help from family when it came to planning. Rex and Cathy were really the first cog for the event we found, and everything started to come together after we booked them. They were a real delight to work with: exceptionally polite, flexible, fun, and punctual. Because of them, we started to believe that we could actually pull off planning a wedding. They even invited us over to their house to try the food, which was exceptional. Our wedding was outside, and on the big day, it dumped rain. Rex and his team showed up with a pop up tent though, and had plenty of manpower to get the job done. They fed 120 people with no problems, and even specially prepared vegetable lasagna for our vegetarian guests! All of our guests also enjoyed watching the preparation of the meal and the Dutch Oven cooking, it was extra entertainment! After the dinner, we received several compliments on the food, and many of our guests went back for seconds and thirds. For us it was much more intimate than having a caterer show up with pre-made food in chaffing dishes. If you’re looking to host an event, you can’t go wrong with Carroll’s Custom Cooking, these guys are the best! The food was absolutely delicious, but more importantly, they took a lot of stress off of our backs knowing that our guests would be happy.

Ben catered my daughters graduation party this week. He did an amazing job. I let him know how many people and what we wanted to serve. He had all of the food hot and ready. He was flexible as the time got moved back because the graduation went longer than expected.The price was more than reasonable and the food was delicious. He made a day that could have been stressful, a nice memory for us.

Snap Daddy's has catered a couple of events for me. One was a dinner we host for our clients (75 people in attendance) and the other was a networking event (125 in attendance) where hors d'oeuvres were served. The catering was handled professionally and the staff is very friendly! Both events went very well and they received rave reviews from everyone. Highly recommend their services and even though it states "BBQ", this isn't your traditional BBQ catering company. They can cater and accommodate any occasion since their menu of items is so diverse.

We recently enjoyed a Rotary fundraiser event catered by Dickey's Barbecue Pit. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Good food makes an event memorable and impacts the overall success of an event. Veronica Heap, Catering Manager, did an outstanding job. It was a pleasure to have Dickey's as our caterer.

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.

Do you tip a wedding caterer?

Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

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.

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.
