    Great service and delicious food!

    Jennifer, Summer, and the rest of the Black Pelican catering team did a great job with our wedding catering. The food was delicious and the wedding catering ran smoothly the day of. Jennifer and Summer were extremely responsive and helpful prior to the wedding day. We ended up doing a pie table with pies from the Black Pelican instead of a wedding cake and the guests loved it. I would highly recommend Black Pelican for any Outer Banks wedding. Thank you again Black Pelican!!!

    Guest still raving about food!

    Went to a food tasting and it was out of this world! Myself and two others were very pleasured with the quality and flavor of the food. Sometimes food isn't the same day of, but I can't tell you how many people complimented the food. Everyone came from at least 6hours away and they all were super pleased. No a single bad thing was said regarding the catering. Bartender was quick to provided asked for drinks. The employees were attentive to guests. During the process leading up to the wedding, the catering team was quick to reply to emails and provide tons of feedback and recommendations. Even when not getting alcohol from them, they recommended a way for me to calculate the amount needed. Everything with this company is amazing. They even worked with me during the payment process. For example, I made the final payment on time only to realize I had forgotten to include my husband and myself, it was no issue to add the two of us and apply the new total/payment. I would absolutely recommend this company to everyone getting married! If I had to do it all over, I would choose them again to cater my wedding!
