We are more than thrilled with our choice of Lone Cedar for our wedding catering! From our tasting, we knew we made the right choice with such amazing food. Our guests raved about how good our food was. Victoria was VERY responsive and was super helpful in planning our menu. They even made us to go boxes for our long car ride to our honeymoon after the reception. We would choose Lone Cedar over and over again!

I can't say enough good things about Basnight's Lone Cedar. They were patient and accommodating with me when I was being a flaky bride who couldn't figure out what I wanted or what I could afford. They answered all my questions and inquiries professionally and helpfully and worked with me to make my limited budget work! The food, as always was phenomenal. ( I dine here regularly when I visit OBX and it is always a highlight of my trip) Three beautifully prepared and scrumptious trays for pick up turned my very humble home spun afternoon "snack" reception into a min- feast! I highly recommend them whether you have them provide full catering or just a few items. It was difficult to find caterers who would even agree to providing what I asked with such a limited need, but the staff at Basnight's truly treated me as if I were as important to them as a full catering client.

Professional Network & Endorsements

Working with Lone Cedar is a complete dream! Their food is delicious, their staff is professional, presentable, and very knowledgeable about the food and the way weddings are run. They always have at least one manager on duty that stays for the entire evening to make sure everything runs perfectly. They are easy going, and able to go with the flow while making sure their service is top notch. We as a vendor love working with them, and can rest assured knowing our clients will be just as happy!

Hip Hip Hooray some of my favorite folks and food!!! ;D

Basnight's has incredibly fresh, creative food and friendly staff. Highly recommend for your caterer!

Basnights' is with us often for our weddings and always offer delicious and creative food- with just the right touch of local flavor.

Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe and team were amazing! We unexpectedly had to move the cake and they didn't flinch (anyone in the biz knows how stressful that can be). They somehow they managed to get 125+ guests through a buffet in less than 30 minutes, and even stayed a later than planned to help us with breakdown. In short: we love them and hope to work with them again soon! <3
