As owners of The Colington Cafe we hold high standards for food and service and we couldn't have been happier with Lone Cedar and staff. From the warm petit country ham biscuits and tuna on wontons to the Best Lump Crabcakes (even better than ours :) and Filet Mignon, the food was perfect. The staff went over and above, having to move tables, and always kept a great attitude and professionalism..They even did a super job cutting the cake and cleaning up, having to weave through a big crowd--always smiling. I would highly recommend Lone Cedar to anyone who wants a wonderful experience from start to finish..Sent on 07/03/2014

The Basnight's Lone cedar café catering team was incredible for our 9/22/2018 wedding. We had done a taste testing with them a year prior and the food was delicious so we knew our wedding was going to be great. There were multiple people at the wedding with a tree nut allergy and Victoria triple checked and assured me that the food would be cooked separately which I really appreciated. Victoria and catering staff were so easy to contact and work with. Since our wedding, we've heard from so many of our guests raving about the food and we can not recommend Basnight's enough!!

Amazing! Victoria and her team were awesome! They worked with us throughout the process and delivered exactly what we wanted! My guests are still raving about the food!!
Great food is not the only thing Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe serves up on a daily basis! They get Five Stars for their outstanding customer service for not only their clients and other vendors but their community. Jennette's Pier appreciates Lone Cedar's dedication to incorporating conservation principles into their business. They not only use local seafood, grow their own herbs and such but also have a "green friendly" restaurant. All these things help to preserve our environment, which is a priority for the North Carolina Aquariums and Jennette's Pier. The food is fresh and you can surely taste the difference. This family owned and operated restaurant sees everyone as family and will do their very best to make your event wonderful and more!
Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe is a go-to wedding venue in the Nags Head area. They have lots of parking, a great facility and the service and food are impeccable! Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe should seriously be considered for your wedding and reception venue. It's always a pleasure to shoot any event there!
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!
