Jamie catered our wedding reception in the end of summer. She was extremely good at communicating, answering any and all questions that I had, and always responded very quickly. She went above and beyond in the setup of the food and drink station and the upkeep of the reception from start to finish. Any request I had she took care of immediately and had suggestions on placing and pairing of foods. I could not have asked for a better caterer. Of all the weddings I have been to and part of, this was the smoothest experience in regards to catering. The food was out of this world, I still have my guests complimenting it. If I could give more stars I would!!! She's the best!!

Ms. Marie is very sweet and will work with you to try and do what is necessary from beginning to end. The only part of the Wedding food that wasnt exactly like what we hoped it would be was one of the appetizers (mini biscuits with ham) but maybe we should have clarified how it was done before choosing it. The only other thing was the beef I was told by some people was rather tough. However, the salmon was fantastic as well as the mashed potatoe bar. The sweet tea was just like I like it!!! Other than that we were very pleased with her service and staff was friendly.

Alpha Pitt Smokers catered my daughter's wedding on 4-16-16. We found him quite by accident, but we are so glad we did! Jason & crew did a fantastic job, & the food was awesome. He has many food choices, & you won't be disappointed! Our menu--pork loin, barbeque chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, Mediterranean pasta salad, garden salad & rolls--now your mouth is watering, isn't it? Whatever food you choose, make sure you order the garlic mashed potatoes; they are awesome! Jason was patient with questions & changes to menu choices. He was great with follow up, but he didn't "hound" you. He stayed with us when other caterers stopped responding. He is prompt, & you can tell he loves what he does! Highly recommend he & his crew! He won't disappoint! Great food, great guy=success at any event!!!

So sorry in being so long doing this review. I had to arrange this event from a distance and didn't get to attend myself so when I got rave reviews regarding lunch I knew it was because Aaron Turner delivered everything as promised. He was friendly to work with, there was a great variety of food to meet many needs and it was all delicious. Wonderful experience!

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.
