we are a repeat customer and will book again but on this occasion they completely forgot all of our clams so just make sure to check your order before you leave. they offered to bring them to the house when I called so good customer...service but it was just a disappointing mistake this time around. Definitely still recommend them.More

Absolute BEST boil in OBX! We tried it in 2021 for the 1st time and instantly regretted not trying it the previous years! Ingredients and instructions are easy to follow. The staff is always pleasant. Get it because you will be happier.

Outer Banks Boil Company provided a memorable birthday experience for me. Everything from booking to making adjustments was convenient. The team is exceptionally kind and helpful. We worked with Michaela on booking the event and JC came to our rental house on Corolla to setup...and prepare the food. The meal was fantastic and we look forward to booking with them the next time we are in OBX!More

We always have a great experience with Outer Banks Boil Company! We had a seafood boil last night with Luke and the food was amazing. He did a great job setting everything up and was very polite. The seasoning on the boil this year was...really good, very well seasoned food. We added some lobster tails, mussels, and crab legs - so good! I highly recommend booking a seafood boil with this company every time you visit OBX. You will not be disappointed! I think this is my husband’s favorite part of our yearly trip!More

We are on vacation in Corolla, NC. Everybody we talked to said this was the best so we had to give it a try. We ordered the Ben Franklin Boil for a do it yourself at the condo. It comes with everything you need. Potatoes,...onions, sausage, shrimp, mussles, clams, and crab. We put it on the stove top in the pot that it came in and poured in the Boil Beer. Followed the instructions and in about an hour we had a super meal. It was really good. If you are in Corolla and want a good meal to eat at home, this is the place! Go for it!More

We were in Corolla and had a craving for shrimp but didn't want to deal with crowds...so glad we found this place! It was perfect! They got everything ready, we brought it home and did the boil ourselves! Loved it! It is take-out, no eating...in the restaurant. The boils all come in a pot that you take home and cook it all in.More

We ordered the Ben Franklin for 3. The only thing we would recommend is using the least amount of time recommended regardless of your stove, and check and cook a few more minutes if needed. All the flavors were great - the seasoning, the sauce,...the andouille. We ate all of the seafood and corn for dinner. We had some sausage and potatoes leftovers and made them for breakfast the next day.More

I scheduled a seafood boil during our family's first reunion vacation. What a treat!!! Outer Banks Boil Company exceeded our expectations! Professional, punctual and personalized service. My only regret was that I didn't select more of the premium seafood added to our boil because life...is short -- don't count the dollars -- memories like this will last a lifetime!!!More

I ordered the "start to finish" seafood boil for 29 people during a reunion in Kill Devil Hills, and it was a top notch experience. Easy to order, professional staff, efficient operation....and most important the food was outstanding. Added BBQ along with the traditional shrimp...seafood boil, which was a great addition. HIghly recommend...you won't regret it.More
