Steamers celebrates 29 years as an Outer Banks favorite.
Steamers has been dishing up the highest quality of steamed, grilled, and fresh fried seafood on the Outer Banks since 1994.
That’s countless numbers of soft shell crabs supplied by a local family of crabbers. That’s untold mornings of chef Chris Braswell on the line with the Wanchese, North Carolina fishing fleet as they bring in the catch of the day. That’s, well, no telling how many Steamer Pots To Go© — the original Outer Banks New England-style clambake, and the easy and delicious answer to a beachgoer’s dinner prayers.
In 1994, Steamers co-founder Linda Coats Welch not only came up with the original Outer Banks New England-style clambake, but also the restaurant recipe for success: combine the high quality food of a big city restaurant with the casual atmosphere and fresh seafood of the beach, and vacation-going families and their friends will keep coming back. First located in Corolla, NC, Steamers has stood as a beacon for fresh & gourmet seafood on the Outer Banks since the beginning.
With the launch of Steamers Catering also in 2006, Steamers now provides upscale and delicious catering to the Outer Banks with our fresh and gourmet approach to cooking. Steamers catering is perfect for gathering parties, family reunions, birthday parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, and corporate events.
Steamers has continued to evolve over time in order to meet the varied needs and tastes of the Outer Banks. In 2016 we were able to return to our original roots with the opening of our full-service restaurant in Southern Shores. Fast forward to 2023… We are thrilled to be entering this season with a new food truck that will allow us to participate in more local, community events and and expand out catering capabilities. We would love to be invited to your next party!
