After reading reviews, we had to try Cape Fear Boil Company. We were not disappointed. We chose the Lobster Pot for two. It includes jumbo shrimp, red bliss potatoes, sweet corn, spicy andouille sausage, and vidalia onions all layered and seasoned served with lemon, butter...and homemade cocktail sauce PLUS one Maine lobster tail per person AND 1/2 dozen clams or mussels per person. There is a seasoning bag in the pot but you also get a cup of extra to sprinkle in. The corn is fresh, not frozen and the potatoes are cut to the perfect size. We were given instructions at the store, but it also comes with an instruction sheet. We added our can of beer and followed the instructions and the results were DELICIOUS! Yes, the pot is included!! We were afraid it wouldn't be enough, but it was perfect for two people. So happy and can't wait to return. Thank you!More

I found out about the CFBC on here before our trip to Carolina Beach and was intrigued. I called ahead because I’m a total dork and asked about hours because we go to CB in off season. The guy on the phone was super nice...and said to just call ahead the afternoon we wanted to pick up a boil. We called one afternoon and asked if we could pick up around 6pm. No problem! We went in, and I’m pretty sure it was the owner, who couldn’t have been friendlier and more thorough, giving us instructions and tips for our boil. He had everything ready (we went early to have a beer, but since it was ready, we just picked up) and was just a really genuine, nice person. We took our pot to our airbnb and did what he said (we used beer as the liquid) and had the best dinner ever. It was only myself and my husband, (our daughter inhaled the side of Mac N Cheese we got from CFBC) and it was more than enough food (my husband bought a cooler bag to take the leftovers back home in VA, he loved the food so much). It was a terrific experience, and we plan to make the CFBC boil a yearly tradition when we go to CB.More

Matt was fantastic so accommodating very friendly everyone at the event was so complimentary. The food was super and plentiful. I would recommend Cape Fear Boil to anyone wanting to have a great event. Also could I get some of your stickers mailed to me...Matt did not have any with him the night of the event.

Celebrating my birthday w friends and wanted to have it catered as this birthday was a milestone. My husband called Cape Fear Boil to arrange everything and from the first call to the confirmation, Ty and staff were on top of the arrangements and set...any worries aside. John came to our house on time, setup the boil in the backyard and cleaned up afterwards. Food was delicious, our guests all agreed it was a lot of fun, different, and excellent. The price was reasonable and we had a memorable night and even a few leftovers!. Well worth it, highly recommend!More

Cape Fear Boil did it again! Great job bringing everything over to BHI. Super easy working with them and absolutely adored Grayson, the young man who did the boil. Everything was as expected and it was a great evening. Will definitely use them again and....highly recommend.More

Absolutely delicious……and cooked at home. Portions per person were spot on……we did, however order a few extra crab clusters…..couldn’t resist. And cooking this meal is a no brainer, anyone can do it. Definitely recommend this unique dinner idea!!

We were renting a house for a bachelor party. The Bachelorette party and bachelor party had a combined dinner and decided to go with Cape Fear. Hunter G came out and was the best possible man for the job. He was professional, flexible, and a...great host/cook. The food was delicious and he went above and beyond what we expected. If anyone is thinking of using this company and they send Hunter G, you will absolutely have a great time.More

Cape Fear came to our beach house on figure 8 island and absolutely set the high mark for the vacation’s cuisine with their seafood boil + bbq. You will not regret or forget this food experience…importantly to us…the service was also top-notch throughout the booking...and dinner. If you’re considering it…book it.More

We booked CFBC to cater during our annual family beach week to Holden. The family has been going for 27 years and counting and this is the first year we have catered a boil. They did NOT disappoint. Our chef, Jayme, was punctual, prepared, personable,...and just helped make the evening a memory our entire family will share for a lifetime! Cape Fear Boil Co not only gave us the memories, but also gave us time back together. Instead of splitting late afternoon to our respective rental houses to prep dinner, we all stayed together and enjoyed a relaxing evening. Cape Fear Boil did the rest! Can't wait to do it again next year!More

Highly, highly recommend Cape Fear Boil Company for your low country boil. Marshall specifically made it easy, arrived on time with a smile and honestly felt like part of the party. We were so impressed with the ease of the catering - didn't have to...lift a finger and they truly think of it all - from set up to all the fixins & the breakdown. We look forward to using CFBC again every summer!More

Cape Fear Boil was a great compliment to our Beach vacation. Ben was great. He arrived and set up the gas pot and set up the table cloth on the island of our beach rental. He prepared the shrimp, sausage, potatoes and corn and all...condiments. We had 10 for the catering minimum and had leftovers for four people the following day. Our second year using Cape Fear Boil and we remain impressed with the quality of their service and product.More

Super good seafood. The crab was excellent so the shrimps. We had the crab boil for two. We used to go to michael seafood but we we re disapointed this week. So we decided to give cape fear boil company a try. Totally worth it....If we come back to cb next year, no doubt we will order again. Two cluster of crab, a lot a shrimps, potatoes and sausages. Recommend 110%. The prices are absolutely ok, for what you have.More
