What our customers are saying about us

We brought home a rack of ribs and shrimp on our last day of vacation in Duck. They were amazing as usual, and rank on our “must have” list when we return to OBX each year.

— Jeannine Rutledge Miralles

Steamer’s is the best on the banks! It’s quick, easy, and absolutely delicious. If you’re going to be in the area, stop and experience it for yourself!

— Laura Baker

Thank you for doing an awesome job…”Steamers” night is one of our favorites every year…

— Nancy Hubacher

If you’re looking for a quick meal – of even if you’re looking to escape the hour long waits on the Outer Banks – Steamer’s is the perfect place. Unlike most places where you order to go and get poorly prepared meals, Steamer’s takes to-go to a gourmet level. I was EXTREMELY impressed by how delicious our fried flounder, and scallops were, and by how light the seafood bisque was.

— Leo Saraceni

The best scallops anywhere!

— Rocky Massi

Love Love Love Steamers…one of the best things on the OBX!

— Village Realty

You have the best seafood bisque I have ever had, and I have traveled all over the world!

— Catherine Deitch - Travel Consultant & Writer

It has become a tradition to have Steamers cater our first evening and our last evening. We tend to think of this as opening and closing ceremonies.

— Andrea & Larry Wine

People couldn’t stop talking about the catering weeks after the wedding was over. We were very pleased with the food and the service.

— Karissa

My mother in law booked this service during our Outer Banks Family Vacation last year. All the food was exceptional, and the chef was super friendly. He’s the only person ever to make scallops I liked! Highly recommend Steamers personal chefs!

— Dave Grauel

Catered our wedding reception in 2010 and couldn’t have asked for better service and exceptional seafood! The seafood bisque was “Best I Ever Had” by far!

— Russ Smith

Great job catering Friday nite for the rehearsal dinner at least an 11 on a 10 point scale. Super!

— John Chandler

Wow! This is HANDS DOWN the BEST Clam Chowder anywhere, anytime! I’ve been coming here since 1998 & haven’t been able to find better anywhere, Rhode Island included!

— Christy Hofstaedter

When Derek and I decided that we were getting married on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, there was no question that Chris and Steamers would cater not only our wedding, but our rehearsal dinner as well. Their bisque is to die for, and their cheesecake is the best-kept secret! And did I mention their juicy grilled baby back ribs and their amazing yellow fin tuna salad? We were already familiar with Steamers’ menu, and we were certain that all our guests would enjoy the diversity and freshness of their food.

Chris was very easy to work with. I knew from the beginning that I had nothing to worry about. He listened to the details and all the “wants” about food diversity and food presentation, and he executed everything to a tee!

— Katya and Derek Dowling

Steamer’s was absolutely perfect for our Outer Banks wedding. Chris was wonderfully easy to work with and even in their down season, he was still responsive and easy to reach. My group was especially impressed, as we are all a group of caterers in New Jersey, and everyone commented on how amazing the food was. You won’t go wrong if you choose Steamer’s; they are flexible and professional and the food speaks for itself.

— Samantha

I wanted to write a note and just say THANK YOU for helping to create a wonderful evening for
my husband and our friends. What a wonderfully unique concept you have with the Steamer Pots to go – everything tasted perfect – from corn to the potatoes to the seafood. Everyone including myself was impressed.

You helped to create a great memory during our week vacation in the Outer Banks.

I would recommend you to everyone who travels down. And we hope to do it again.

— Cynthia St. Clair

Steamers was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end!! Chris, the owner, went above and beyond to make this a memorable catering experience. The food was abundant and meticulously prepared. The guests loved the selection of foods and how it was presented by Steamer’s staff. I highly recommend Steamers for any event you might have!! You will not be disappointed!

— Cathy H.

Steamers is the best! Chris did a phenomenal job catering our daughters wedding this past week! The food was outstanding, the staff too! Thanks for making the wedding special for us all!

— Mark Penn

Our guests could not stop complimenting all of the delicious food they served. The oyster raw bar was set perfectly and their service can’t be beat!

— Janet & Marc Sanidad

Chris and his team at Steamers Catering was wonderful to work with for our wedding reception! The food was amazing and the service they provided was exceptional. I received many compliments on the food, some said it was the best meal they had in the Outer Banks. I was fortunate enough to coordinate a tasting ahead of time but for those who aren’t the Lobster & Shrimp Bisque is amazing! I can’t wait to go back down and get some more.

— Kate

Chris is a can-do dude! Our catering plans for my wedding were loosely formed. He took charge and put together an amazing meal of fish (mahi mahi), ribs, chicken..etc. The food was fantastic, you could tell he put a lot of time and care into every facet. I highly recommend working with Chris and Steamers catering!

— Robert

Chris and the girls did a FANTASTIC job with our wedding catering! The best part was that we were able to actually sit down and enjoy our wedding and our guests without having to worry.

— Brianne

Chris and his staff were amazing! The attention to detail and extra touches were perfect and the food was all exceptional. Steamers is one of our favorite restaurants when we visit Corolla and it was wonderful to be able to share that with our wedding guests. Everyone raved about both the quality and abundance Steamers provided. I highly recommend them for any event, especially if you want a professional staff that will handle everything without you even having to ask.
