That's roughly $20 per person, which my be difficult depending on your location. Just practically speaking, think of where you can go out to eat where a full meal costs that. BBQ is usually pretty cheap, as is Italian and Mexican.

Some of it will depend on location. I would reach out to caterers or your favorite restaurants and get price quotes. I live in a high cost of living area, so catering tends to be minimum $100 per person for dinner.
Nearly all restaurants provide corporate drop off catering very inexpensively and you can manage that with no issues. You will have to have a buffet setup with staff hired from Thumbtack.com though. However you will get better tasting food and larger quantities through the drop off service than through a specialty wedding caterer.
Hey Dwight, if you have your wedding at a non-mealtime (like 2 pm), it’s acceptable to just do a short “cake & punch” reception after. It can literally be cake & punch. Or light appetizers or meat & cheese platters with a dessert bar. Basically, you don’t have to offer a full meal.
A local restaurant by me has a taco bar with salad option that's like $12/person. The BBQ place I'm looking at is about $18. Depending on where you live the budget is possible, but it probably won't be super fancy and will be buffet.
$2500 for 110 people will be very difficult to do. I second Pirate and 60's Bride's suggestion about having your reception at a non meal time and just offering dessert or light appetizers. If you do want to have it at a meal time, I would look into large chain restaurants that offer catering. Just remember to factor in tax and gratuity into your total.
