Victoria was fantastic to work with and helped to make our wedding the most memorable! The food was incredible and the special naked chocolate and banana cake was a huge success. We were so happy with their work that some of our guests took us to Basnight's the following week. We have no complaints and we were completely satisfied. They went above and beyond to make our day special.

I'm going to break this down, to where it helps those seeking a catering service for their wedding or event can actually figure out information that may be helpful!
First off, my wife and I are currently living in Virginia, 2+ hours away from the OBX and our wedding venue. Victoria (catering manager), Caroline, and Lone Cedar as a whole, were always available, quick to respond to questions, and went out of their way to help and guide us through the whole ordeal. With us being out of town, we had to talk on the phone, emails, etc... for the duration of communication leading up to our wedding.
Secondly, while many may try samples of food at the wedding expo, or maybe you've eaten at Lone Cedar numerous times, there are different food options they offer through their catering that isn't served at expos or even in the restaurant. This will allow you a diverse and pretty awesome selection of apps and entree selections you may not be aware of. (Make sure to try the fried mac n cheese bites)
Third, planning on getting married during the summer or early-mid fall and worried about a hurricane? Well, it happened to us, and what was suppose to be nothing at all, ended up knocking down every power line in the area of Lone Cedar. While our reception was at a different location, one must take into account the restaurant storing, prepping and preparing food for the event, etc... Lone Cedar assured us, everything was fine and everything was a go! Reassurance like this for a stressing bride is invaluable!
Lastly, our food was amazing! The value was amazing. You can't really go wrong with selecting Lone Cedar for your catering services! I don't know how many people came up to us bragging about how great the food and service was throughout the entire reception! Feel free to shop around, talk to other people, but don't be surprised when you come back to Lone Cedar ready to sign up!

Victoria was wonderful to work with in order to plan my special day. I was 8 hours away and her correspondence with me via email was fantastic! For over 5 months we would communicate about my wedding plans and she made everything so easy for my family and I to make all of the arrangements. The food was fantastic, the service was great and the prices were reasonable. I would highly recommend using Victoria and planning any type of event with Lone Cedar Cafe. Everything was perfect!

You cannot go wrong with Basnight's Lone Cedar! The catered both our rehearsal dinner and wedding. Our rehearsal dinner was held in the Andy room at their location with a amazing view and tasteful decor. They traveled to our wedding venue to cater. Working with Victoria and Caroline we were able to create two different menus for each function. We received so many complements on the food both nights!! They had answers to every question I came up with and responded same day throughout the planning process. Whatever you want they make it happen and are open to request. It was also really nice that they could make everything included so you are paying one price whether it is just for food with set up, break down and gratuity included or you are adding in bar tending services, cake, decor and dishware. I will continue to recommend them for catering events or even just dinner!

Basnights was a dream to work with from start to finish! As soon as I wrote them an inquiry in the beginning, I heard back from them right away, and they stayed responsive all through out the process - that was a very important thing for me during my planning process. Victoria did such a good job explaining things to me, as well as my parents (and they had a LOT of questions), so she was just an absolute pleasure to work with. Now for the food.....delicious is an understatement. Our guests raved about the mac and cheese bar that we had, and the ice cream bar too. They had so many great options, it was almost hard to choose. Highly recommend Basnights!!

Basnight's Lone Cedar Café catered my sister's wedding reception. The wedding and reception were both held at Jennette's Pier. The staff at Lone Cedar are familiar with that venue and, since I was planning everything from out of town, they were able to offer tons of helpful information in planning our event. They set up in a timely manner and answered our questions as we set up. The food was delicious and the staff was professional and so kind to all of our guests. I would use them again and again, if the opportunities arise.

We booked the caterer sight unseen for a destination wedding and had some understandable nervousness... but when we were finally able to make it for a tasting, we realized we hadn't just gotten a good caterer, we'd won the lottery! More than just a good showing at the tasting, too: We ordered a brunch buffet-style meal with them, and from the appetizers to the lox to the crepes to the eggs benedict to the Kneasal salad, everything was delicious. Better than delicious. Our guests were all impressed, and we have some foodie friends among them--they're not an easy crowd to wow, but wow Lone Cedar did! Victoria is great to work with, honest and responsive, and their costs are up front and clear.
We had a fairly small wedding, about 60 people, and provided our own alcohol (hired bartender from them, and rented silverware and plates from them). They were professional; their cost includes food clean-up and banquet table linens; and gratuity was included in the quoted cost, so we didn't have to figure that out later.

Victoria and her staff were absolutely top notch. I would give 50 more stars if possible! The wedding was now three weeks ago and people are still talking about how great the food was. Not only did we receive countless compliments on the food, we also had several guests comment on how courteous the staff was. I worked with Victoria from the start and by my own admission, was a pain to deal with. She was more than accommodating to my every and constantly-changing requests. I would 100% recommend them to anyone and everyone!
