how it works
We show up an hour before you want to eat, set-up all the equipment and start cooking for your entire group. Sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite beverage while we cook. When cooking is complete, we drop all the yummy goodness onto a table (yours or ours) fully equipped with table cloth, plates, forks, knives, and all the other essential utensils and fix-ins for our Signature Seafood Boil.
While you enjoy the meal, we clean up our equipment and share local knowledge. When everyone is finished, we help bag up your leftovers, clean the table and dispose of any trash and even take it all away leaving you with nothing but a full belly and a vacation memory you'll be talking about long after you leave the Outer Banks.
HOW CAN I CHECK IF MY DATE IS AVAILABLE?
