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.

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!

Basnight's Lone Cedar was amazing! The owner and staff were great, every question we had they answered quickly. My wedding was in North Carolina and I live in Virginia so I was suspecting being in another state to plan a wedding would be hard but It was a breeze and everything turned out perfect! The guests loved the dining room decorations and the food! Thanks again for everything! See y'all soon :)

Caroline helped my vision of a warm and casual, but elegant, southern rehearsal dinner for our son's wedding become reality. It was held in the Andy Room at the Lone Cedar. From the incredible shrimp appetizer and the baked brie with bacon and fig preserves to the pit cooked eastern NC style barbecue with all the "appropriate sides", to the blueberry cobbler with ice cream and key lime pie, it was perfect. We had guests from approximately 15 states and had rave reviews from everyone. The predominant sentiment I heard expressed was, " We're going to try to eat as much barbecue as we can and at the Lone Cedar as often as we can before we go home!"
The next evening, Basnight's Lone Cedar also catered the reception at the beautiful Ocean Room at Jeanette's Pier. It was wonderful. The food, the bartending and the service were excellent. I don't even know what to say about the mini crab cake appetizers except that I want them again! Several guests told me that they had attended so many weddings, but had never had a meal at any of them that was as delicious as that one. Both Caroline and Victoria were so professional, responsive, kind and easy to work with. I just want another event for Lone Cedar to cater! Thank you all so much for the huge role you played in one of the happiest times in the life of my family.

My husband and I have been going to Basnight's Lone Cedar and they were our first choice to cater our wedding. I am SO happy we chose them! First off, the food was amazing! We highly recommend the Asian Shrimp :) Every guest commented on how great everything tasted. Second, Caroline, Vicki, Ron, and the entire staff at our wedding that day made our day completely stress free! We did not have to worry about one thing because they just went ahead and took care of it. Caroline kept in contact with me for the months leading up to the wedding and made everything so easy. I would 100% recommend Lone Cedar if you want great food, great people, and a stress free event!

We were having a very small reception, after our beach wedding (22 attendees) and Basnight's was not only willing to cater for such a small group, but they worked within my budget and tolerated my changing the menu about three times! The food was absolutely delicious and our cupcakes received rave reviews from everyone at our reception. The staff is extremely nice to work with and very prompt in responding (via email, which I prefer since I am hard to track down by phone). I highly recommend them!

I have been in the food service and catering business for the last eight years. I have high standards for service and quality of food. From the very first email I sent to Basnight's Lone Cedar, to their presentation, set up and execution of the menu, they went above and beyond my expectations. Planning a catering menu without being able to meet or taste in person, is a very difficult challenge, but from the very beginning the professionalism and flexibility with this company made me know that I was going in the right direction. My husband and I couldn't have been happier and I could not say nicer things about working with this company. This company is incredibly talented and professional, and I wish I had a slice of that delicious wedding cake to eat at this very moment. I would recommend this company to my best girlfriends and family members. Thank you so much to the incredible staff for making my wedding so spectacular and delicious.

Lone Cedar did my husbands and I's rehearsal dinner and wedding and for both events they were absolutely fantastic! Caroline and Victoria are both incredibly easy to work with and accommodating! The food at both events was amazing, especially the wedding where we had asian chicken skewers and shrimp for appetizers and filet, chicken alfredo and crab cake for dinner - all of our guests have raved about how wonderful each item was! We did a ton of searching for a rehearsal dinner location and I can say after searching restaurants up and down Nags Head, Basnights Lone Cedar not only had the best food, but also had the best pricing!! I would highly recommend using Lone Cedar for any special occasion or just a night out to dinner! =)

As owners of The Colington Cafe we hold high standards for food and service and we couldn't have been happier with Lone Cedar and staff. From the warm petit country ham biscuits and tuna on wontons to the Best Lump Crabcakes (even better than ours :) and Filet Mignon, the food was perfect. The staff went over and above, having to move tables, and always kept a great attitude and professionalism..They even did a super job cutting the cake and cleaning up, having to weave through a big crowd--always smiling. I would highly recommend Lone Cedar to anyone who wants a wonderful experience from start to finish..

It wasn't really a wedding but rather a post-wedding breakfast that my mother hosted for my cousin, the bride. Basnight's provided both the waterside-view venue and the yummy made-to-order omelets, creme-fraiche-and-fresh-berry crepes, seasonal sweet fruit, and traditional danishes, along with coffee, juice and water for the event. But the icing on the cake, so to speak, was the can-do service with a smile.

Amy, Caroline, and the entire staff at Lone Cedar were awesome to work with. The food was delicious, the views are beautiful, and the staff is amazing! We have been going to Lone Cedar for years & it is our favorite restaurant on the beach. So, we automatically knew that we wanted to use them for our wedding rehearsal dinner. Amy & Caroline were so kind to help me surprise my husband with a ice cream bar that had all of his favorite toppings after dinner! It was such a success!

Amy and her staff were fantastic. The food was great and everyone went home full and happy. The variety of food offered and her ability to work within our budget was wonderful. We ended up with a few trays of leftovers, but our out of town guests were more than happy to help with those. The steamed clams, and crab stuffed mushrooms were a hit, as were the prosciutto wrapped scallops.

We have used Basnight's Lone Cedar for several events over the past three years. They are simply the best. The food is always delicious and beautifully prepared. Their crabcakes ar simply the best in the world. Their fish is always fresh and their wine selectionis simply the best in the Outer Banks.

We have always had wait staff that were efficient, courteous and fun with the guests. At one party, they were so good they received a standing ovation from the attendees.

Basnight's Lone Cedar wasn't exactly the closest caterer to our wedding in Corolla, but boy were they worth the drive. Amy Davis, the catering manager embodies southern hospitality. She was patient, accommodating, professional and extremely sensitive to our feelings during the day of the wedding. She did everything in her power to make sure everything went smoothly. She was constantly floating around keeping everything in line while checking in with us to make sure we were okay. She completely took over the role of wedding day coordinator (I was so glad we hadn't booked one!) She even helped us through the cake cutting, and various other details outside of her catering job. The food was absolutely divine, and we got many compliments on "actually having good wedding food". There was plenty of food and we were so happy with the selections we made. Can't say enough about Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe or Amy Davis. Want a smooth, stress-free wedding caterer? Book Basnight's.

Amy was fabulous to work with. She came to my house and sat with me for a few hours to make sure we got the menu just right. She even made recommendations for cocktails. She went out of her way to make things perfect for us! My husband had this crazy idea for fried mac and cheese, a recipe that they did not do, and not only did they perfect the recipe, but they were a huge hit. WONDERFUL food!!

We did a rather large wedding and Basnight's made sure everything went smoothly. We had 9 servers, 4 bartenders, and 2 chefs. They were incredible...a well-oiled machine.

The Food was insanely good, this is NOT an understatement!! I was having a difficult time finding any caterer that could do an entirely vegetarian wedding, every place I called would give me the run around and would price out a meal with some type of meat - seafood- chicken, like they weren't listening. Not Lone Cedar, called me back immediately every time and never had to send back the menu for revision. We loved this place so much, we went there for dinner a few days after the wedding. The catering staff was super nice and professional. LOVE LOVE their food.

The food was absolutely beautiful and delicious. We had guests that weren't sure if they enjoyed its presentation or taste better. Lots of positive comments. The only thing we weren't sure about was their responsiveness. My mother knows the chef and the owner (NC Senator Marc Basnight), but had trouble getting up with the chef for a couple months around November and December, due to a high volume of Christmas parties being held in the area that received catering from Basnight's. If you want to use their services, try to schedule it at least 6-8 months ahead of time. They are a very popular local restaurant and you have to schedule them early. Otherwise, the food arrived in plenty of time, with all of its proper containers, was hot and fresh, and we had plenty left over.

Overall, we are very happy that we used Lone Cedar for our catering. The catering manager there was extremely responsive throughout the year, especially the weeks before the wedding when I would email her 5x per day! The food was EXCELLENT, top notch. The only thing that was negative for us is that we heard, post wedding, that some tables did not get much food (we had food stations/buffets). They went up to the buffets and there was basically scraps and garnish left on the platters and none of the catering attendants did anything about it. It was pretty embarassing to hear this happened. For the price that we paid, there should have been leftovers. We even had 4 people unexpectedly not come at the last minute - if they came, even more people wouldn't have gotten anything! How mortifying.... But like I said, overall a good experience, minus the food run out. I think after myself and my mother have reamed the catering dept. out, they won't make that mistake again..
