Professional and Helpful

I cannot begin to say enough good things about my experiences with Kelly’s OBX catering in Nags Head NC. My son’s wedding in Nags Head was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid, yet they went ahead and got married in an intimate ceremony in their home town. They along with his brother and wife now have small infants and we did not think having a rehearsal dinner in a restaurant would make sense. Despite my last minute planning Mary Ann from Kelly’s squeezed us in for catering our rehearsal dinner at the Inn where we were all staying in Nags Head. Mary Ann was a pleasure to work with and went out of her way to help us with logistics and planning. The staff that set up the food the night of our dinner were so kind and helpful. The portions of food were generous. Everyone at our rehearsal dinner enjoyed their food. I received so many compliments on the Broiled Seafood, Fried Chicken and side dishes that accompanied the meal. One continuous statement from guests was the “Best Fried Chicken ever! “

Best of the best in catering

Kelly's did a beautiful presentation for our wedding. The food and service was excellent during the entire event. The wait staff was attentive to all of our needs and requests. Working with Mary Ann was super important. She offered recommendations base upon her extensive experience in catering. Quite frankly Kelly's treated us like family. They are definitely the go to caterer in the OBX.
