New owners - brides beware. We met the previous owners at the Outer Banks Wedding Expo in January, 2017. On May 6th we received an e-mail explaining that the business had been sold and contact information for the new owners. I spoke with them numerous times over the phone and e-mail from June, 2017 to September, 2017. We met with the new owners in September to firm up the menu and schedule which went well. A week later we received an e-mail stating that they would be breaching the contract we had with the original owners and would be taking another job the night of our wedding. Luckily, we found another caterer that we are pleased to be working with at a much better rate. I cannot speak to the quality of their food or service, however, the professionalism and business acumen left more to be desired with the new owners.

Steve and Susan should be the first people you talk to when planning your event. Not only were they easy to work with and just all around great people, but they go beyond helping you think through the catering to the planning of the actual event. They were able to give immediate estimates for service as well as providing us advice on how to save money in the process. They were very responsive to email and phone calls leading up to the event and gave very precise directions on setup to ensure a perfect event. I cannot begin to describe how delicious the food was, and I received nothing but high praise from all of the guests in attendance. I am looking forward to planning my next event in the outer banks just for the opportunity to talk to Steve and his amazing staff again.

Everything about our experience was exceptional. Our request was last minute and they accommodated us in every way possible. The food was delicious - we had pork tenderloin and crab cakes that got rave reviews. The portions were HUGE. The value was unbelievable as the price was very fair for such high quality food displayed absolutely beautiful. I would recommend them to anyone who needs catering for any event. Top-notch people and company.
