We did this in 2019 and were more than happy to do it again this year. It was so good the first week that we ordered again for our second week.

Outer Banks Boil Co. did a great job catering to our vacation rental in OBX. The food was delicious!! OBBC did everything from set up/cook/clean up! Great experience. Would highly recommend!

We bought two pots to take home to boil ourselves. Shrimp, potatoes and more shrimp, no sausage and corn on the cob. Very easy to do and delicious! Highly recommend! I can see why they have five stars and are number one!

Too windy to do the boil outside, but we made do inside our condo. Great time and great food. Excellent and very friendly and helpful staff. Anyone staying on the Outer Banks needs to give them a shot.

Best meal we had this trip. The seafood was super fresh and they were great about substituting items when we didn’t want the sausage as a part of our boil. Definitely a new family tradition for our trips to the Outer Banks!

Wilson showed up on time and did not disappoint. We had a great time watching him cook the meal and asking many questions. It was fun to hear about the area from a local. Our boil was FANTASTIC!! Service was awesome.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Wilson is top notch! Hope to have you back with us next time you visit the OBX!

With the unknown status of mainly restaurant locations along with the additional rules and regulations - having OBX boil come to the house was like going to a restaurant but not having to change out of your comfy clothes or swimsuit!! Food was delicious, “boiler”...was so polite and great to chat with while he made the food, and best part is no clean up!! We’ve done this two years in a row and it’s now tradition!!More

Perfect food, perfect personality and plenty of it! We could not be more happy with the quality and quantity of our boil. Taste was amazing and you walk away from the table needing a nap because you will over eat just because of the flavors....Literally couldn’t be happier with this company.More

We catered the dinner and it was an experience that was truly unforgettable. Scott arrived at our house cooked the meal, set up the table, served the meal and cleaned after. All the seafood sausage and Corn were cooked to perfection. It was more than...a meal. It was an extraordinary experience for everyone.More
