We hired Wanda and BJ for catering, bartending service and the creation of our wedding cake for our 9-2 Nags Head Wedding that was going to take place outside at an oceanfront beach house. All of my planning was done from out of state site unseen. From my very first conversation with Wanda I felt as though she was a pro and she was going to take care of me, and she didn't disappoint. We had meaningful correspondence through the planning process and when we arrived in NC she made it her business to visit the venue with us and reassured me she had me covered. When the day rolled around the weather forced us inside. I had to abandon all of my ideas. After the ceremony I entered the space for cocktail hour I was amazed with how beautiful the food presentation, and was brought to tears when I saw my CAKE! BJ baked my cake and it was exactly what I asked for. When dinner came I was equally as amazed. Wanda and her crew made sure we had everything we needed from bartending service to tableware to reassurance that they would take care of the details. I would enthusiastically recommend BJ's!

Wanda and BJ are an amazing duo. (They also own the restaurant). They both went beyond our expectations and made our wedding phenomenal. BJ prepared a wonderful buffet style dinner with pulled pork, roasted chicken, pasta salad, coleslaw, baked beans, green beans, mashers and cornbread. Everything tastes amazing! Our guests were raving about the food. BJ also made our wedding cake, which not only tasted amazing but was also aesthetically pleasing. It was a beautiful fusion of country and beach.
Wanda was wonderful throughout the entire process, especially on the day of the wedding. She sat with us for a few hours to make sure that she got every detail right about what we wanted our wedding day to be. On the day of the wedding she assisted with setting up the decorations and the tent for the DJ. She also planted several plants the weekend after we booked the restaurant for the reception. She wanted to make sure everything was in full bloom and the place looked spectacular. Wanda was our lifesaver, as our officiant was a friend of ours that was unable to come due to car troubles. Wanda became our officiant and had a beautiful ceremony designed for us. On the day of the wedding, Wanda was my personal lifesaver on the day of the wedding. She reassured me that everything was going to go smoothly. She became the wedding planner that day. She added little decorative touches here and there. The whole wedding was beautiful. I recommend this place to anyone wanting to get married in the Outer Banks area.

Bj's made our wedding absolutely perfect. We lost our officiant four weeks before our wedding day and is almost impossible to find someone in such short notice Wanda came to the rescue and saved our wedding by officiating and also her Carolina cafe made the most delicious topper cake for us that matched out theme perfectly. Wanda also made our ceremony completely custom by getting to know our personalities and fitting it all into our fall barn theme. Choosing and working with Bjs Carolina cafe was the most stress free and best decision I had made for my wedding. I will recommend to every bride to be that I know.

We found BJ's Carolina Cafe at the Wedding Expo held at First Flight High/Middle Schools in Kitty Hawk NC. Their booth was decorated so cute and it looked like they offered exactly what we wanted. We spoke with Wanda (part owner) and really liked her from the start. We contacted her a few days later and set a date to meet and discuss our thoughts and ideas. She was more than accomodating, agreeing to meet us in Chesapeake because it was halfway between. She brought samples of some of the foods they offered. We kept in touch through all the planning and met an additional time (in Chesapeake) to finalize everything. The day of the wedding they arrived on time and had everthing prepared so that it was ready for guest right after the wedding was over. Their display was great and the food was delicious! I got so many good comments from our guests about the food. Wanda and BJ worked very hard to ensure that everything was perfect. I would totally recommend them to anyone planning an event. Oh my, I forgot the cake! The wedding was beachy and BJ made a 3 tier cake with anchors all over it-so cute!!!
