Lone Cedar was beyond fantastic as a rehearsal dinner location. We had our dinner in the back room which has an incredible view. The guests were impressed and it was nice being at the back of the restaurant and really having privacy for our event. With around 50 guests, the servers were on top of refilling drinks, and had food out in a very timely manner. They worked with us on the entire menu and even made a Philly cheese steak dip that was not on their regular menu to please my groom! We brought in a groom's cake but also featured their Hershey bar cake that is to die for. You won't be disappointed with the service you receive!

We held our rehearsal dinner at Basnight's. We had about 30 people and had a private room with a beautiful view of the water and the sunset! We opted for the family style menu, which worked really well for us. The food was phenomenal and we received many compliments on it. We especially loved the mac-n-cheese and my husband, who loves crab cakes, said his was the best one he's ever had (which is a high compliment from a Marylander!). I am a vegetarian and a few of my guests are Kosher and they were very accommodating. The catering manager did change after we booked the restaurant, but this wasn't an issue at all.
Victoria, the new catering manager, was very responsive and helpful. All of the staff at Basnight's was friendly and made sure we were well taken care. We hosted a welcome reception in the bar area after the dinner, where we provided drinks for our guests. Basnight's was kind enough to give us a discount. There was also live music in the bar area, which made it a very fun atmosphere for us and our guests! We will definitely eat at Basnight's next time we are in OBX and highly recommend them for your event.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Basnights Lone Cedar Cafe! Not only was the food and service phenomenal, but THE VIEW of the sound was beautiful and serene as well. They worked with our budget to by providing us with menu options that satisfied our taste buds, yet budget friendly! They wanted to make our rehearsal dinner amazing....and that is EXACTLY what it was. Our guests are STILL RAVING about how delicious the food was, as well as the service! We had a few close friends and family go back for dinner throughout their vacation...yes, it was THAT GOOD! Basnights also allowed my sisters to set up a slideshow of photos which displayed on one of the blank walls of the room (great idea for future brides and grooms), and any other decor they wanted to do before our guests arrived. They are truly there to make your rehearsal dinner and day before the wedding as stress free as possible!! THANK YOU FROM THE VICKERTONS!

Basnight's took care of our small wedding party for a wonderful dinner. The view was incredible. The table was decorated beautifully. The food was wonderful and the cake was the best that we had ever had. Their service and attention to detail and willingness to help is second to none. If you are planning an event on the Outer Banks or just a weekend getaway, look no farther for an great dinner event.

Victoria & the entire Basnight's staff were great to work with from beginning to end. The rehearsal dinner in the restaurant was delicious, with generous servings and excellent service. The on-site catering at our rental home reception in OBX was also absolutely perfect - we didn't have to worry about a thing on the big day.

My husband and I hosted our 30 person rehearsal dinner at Lone Cedar and had a fabulous time! We reserved the private room in the back of the restaurant which fit all of us very comfortably. The room featured beautiful views of the Pamlico Sound!

The food selections were delicious (especially the mashed sweet potatoes). The staff was professional and service was fast. They even made a personalized groom's cake for us!

Overall a great choice for catering/rehearsal dinner or even just a night out.

Hot and scrumptious food...efficient and friendly service...a cozy and comfortable atmosphere...smiling and contented guests...Dining at Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe is just like having a great dinner party at home, only better-no prep and no clean-up by the hosts!! The staff at Lone Cedar does it all from providing menu advice to packing up left-overs to take home. When our son got married, we chose Lone Cedar for both the Rehearsal Dinner and the Sunday Brunch and we couldn't have been more pleased.

We had both our rehearsal dinner and reception done by Lone Cedar. We are from PA, so organizing an out of town event can be very stressful. Not with Lone Cedar. From the first day I contacted them, they promptly got back to me. Every time I had a question or concern they answered it immediately. They were kind, upbeat and very professional. They did a tasting for us that was out of this world. We knew immediately that we had made the right decision. Our rehearsal dinner was wonderful, from the service to the food. The reception was also wonderful, our time schedule we gave them was off, but they adjusted the schedule so everything ran smooth. The food was hot, and all the guest raved about how wonderful it was. The servers were always in motion, taking care of our every need. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone who is thinking about doing a rehearsal dinner and or reception.

I'm finding difficulty in putting into words the amount of gratitude and respect I have for this company. After getting into a "predicament" with another catering company I was really in a bind to find a professional caterer that actually returned calls etc! I planned my daughters Nags Head wedding long distance and was really in a panic with my caterer! I sent an email to Lone Cedar Cafe without expecting much help as it was only 2 weeks until the wedding! To my disbelief I got a call the very next day from Victoria! Even a phone call was more than I had received from the other caterer so I was already pleased! After telling Victoria what was going on she replied in the calmest voice," We can help you, without all the problems! Leave it to us and have no worries"! I trusted her (remember I was planning from out of state) and went with their company.She helped me design a menu to please even the pickiest of eaters! I could not have been more pleased! Victoria and her crew were professional, friendly, helpful and skilled! The food was BEYOND excellent and many people who attended are still talking about the food! It was delicious! As promised, Victoria and her staff took care of everything and I honestly had no problems at all! They even return phone calls and e-mails from panicked moms right away! To anyone planning an event I would highly recommend Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe!
