We had a 3 couple vow renewal ceremony just for family. On relatively short notice the folks at Black Pelican Catering contacted us with their offerings. They worked with us to set up a menu to feed 18 people from kids to teenagers to grandparents. The food was outstanding, although probably too much as we had a lot of leftovers. They were on time, efficient and very clean in setting everything up and the tear down afterwards.. The food was hot when it was supposed to be and came with all the appropriate sauces. We would highly recommend Black Pelican Catering and would use them again when we are back in the Outer Banks.

Linda and her team did an excellent job catering our wedding reception. We knew the food was going to be delicious after we had our tasting about a month and a half before the wedding. They were on time, were flexible with their setup based on our limited space, and cleaned up the area so well you couldn't even tell they were there. All my guests loved the food and we had a TON of leftovers, which unfortunately we had to waste since all of our guests left town the day after the wedding.

I worked with Linda and her crew for my wedding reception at a beach home in Kill Devil Hills. The food was amazing, and Linda and all of her staff were awesome! Linda was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. During the reception, they made sure that all of my guests were well taken care of the whole night, and she made sure that my husband and I had plenty of everything throughout the night. We did our pictures during the cocktail hour, and Linda had a tray of appetizers ready just for us when we got to the house. The bartender, Shaw, was awesome! It was like he was part of the fam, and he even gave the guests some tips for enjoying the outer banks for the rest of the week. All of the guests complimented the food and the service. It was really nice waking up to a clean kitchen and dining room the next day too! Thank you Linda and the Black Pelican crew!

We hired Black Pelican for our wedding because my parents love to eat there when in the Outer Banks. Being that I'm not from that area, I chose them based on reputation. We worked with Linda (mainly) and Erica (some.) Every one we spoke with at Black Pelican was completely professional. They were affordable and they treated us like a priority, not just another order number. Every time I spoke with anyone from Black Pelican, they made me feel as if they were so excited about our event and their commitment to making it a perfect experience.

When the big day came a few weeks ago, they were AWESOME! They were on time, they were highly professional and our guests could not stop commenting on how wonderful the food was! We chose blackened beef medallions, mahi, crab cakes, potatoes and mixed veggies, crackers and cheese and a garden salad. It was absolutely wonderful!!

We were very pleased with our choice and would absolutely suggest the Black Pelican to cater anyone's event. My mouth still waters thinking of the beef medallions... my only regret is that I didn't put more of them on my plate because our guests finished them all off before I could have seconds! ha!

First off, this review isn't really for the catering side of Black Pelican, but more for the restaurant. But they were such a big and great part of our big day, that I wanted to make sure I could let everyone else know how impressed we were with them! We had a small wedding, just 14 guests, and after the wedding we all wanted to go to dinner. I didn't want catering or anything for such a small group, but after I read some online reviews, Black Pelican stuck out as a very well respected restaurant. They were very easy to work with, just one phone call set up the dinner for our group. They let me bring our wedding cake for desert and supplied plates and forks without charging any type of fee, which was great. Everyone RAVED about their food, from the risotto, to the grilled mahi mahi, to the ahi tuna, to the clambakes, to the fried fish, to the pasta. No one was disappointed, and the atmosphere was wonderful. The waitress was fantastic, and my husband and I both were amazed at how quickly a group as large as ours got service, both for empty drinks and how fast the food came out. If you need a place for a large group, or even a small wedding party like ours, The Black Pelican is perfect, and will be a staple visit for all of our OBX trips in the future! :)

We booked Black Pelican for both our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception. The rehearsal dinner was held upstairs in their restaurant, and we were able to have the whole room for our party. I cannot say enough good things about the ladies at Black Pelican and how wonderful our experience with them was. They are fabulous!!! They went above and beyond my expectations, and we are so happy we chose to work with them on our wedding day. They were extremely responsive - usually responding to my emails within an hour. They were always there when I had last minute questions or concerns. The food was excellent, and we had SO many compliments on the food at our wedding reception. They even decorated the restaurant tables for our rehearsal dinner and provided decorative signs and starfish on our wedding buffet without any extra fee. They were very attentive to my husband and me throughout our wedding reception - constantly making sure we had food and drinks and anything else we needed/wanted. I would recommend Black Pelican catering to anyone who wants a fabulous OBX wedding experience!!!

The Black Pelican catered my rehearsal dinner. They were by far the best value with their predesigned menus. I was frustrated in the beginning of working with them by the varying responses I got to my questions from the staff so make sure you get the final word from the catering director. I also did not like that they showed up over an hour early to deliver the food and the driver wanted to go ahead and set everything out. He did in the end stay until the requested delivery time, but I could tell he wasn't happy about it. I just didn't think it would have been right for them to leave food sitting out for an hour while we were rehearsing with no one to attend to it. Otherwise, the food was great (we had the BBQ menu), and you can't get a better catering price for deliveries.

I cannot say enough about the Black Pelican's catering service. Firstly, the whole crew was great to work with. They answered all of our questions quickly either with an email or a phone call, and never seemed to tire of my MILLION questions! We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting - the food was great of course, but they even comped our drinks! On the day of, the staff was very professional but still fun to have at the wedding which was important to me. The food was excellent and the mashed potato bar is STILL being talked about! I was impressed that the catering staff actually brought apps down to the beach for us and for our families and wedding party while we took pictures. To me, that is going the extra mile since SO many couples complain about not getting to eat at their own wedding! I would absolutely recommend The Black Pelican to anyone in the Outer Banks.

Black Pelican served a plated dinner for 130 people at our wedding. The food was INCREDIBLE! I had people coming up to me days later commenting on how good their filet or fish was! In addition to appetizers, we also had late night snacks of macaroni and cheese, pulled pork sliders, french fries, and spinach dip. Everything was perfect! Emily was so responsive and so, so flexible! We changed our minds a million times, and she was able to accommodate us no matter what! I had so many people compliment on how professional and kind our bartenders were, too. Overall, it was a great experience, and I couldn't have imagined the day with anyone but Black Pelican!

Emily was such a wonderful help! She was so kind, helpful, flexible and amazing. The food was delicious, everyone was talking about it non stop! Emily had her staff serve champagne to all of our guest as they walked up the steps to our wedding, everyone said they had never seen anyone that great. My poor little nieces were starving after we took our photos and they had already moved the appetizers back into the kitchen, they very graciously made a plate for my nieces so they could have some crackers and cheese before we ate. Emily was lovely and we can't wait to eat at the black pelican on our first anniversary! They are a little more than the others, but so so so so worth it.

I can't say enough about the Black Pelican. I planned my wedding from Virginia, never ate at the Black Pelican, took recommendations from the Catering Mgr, and everything turned out PERFECT. They were responsive and very easy to work with.

I had more of a DIY wedding at one of the beach homes on the 4x4 beach. The Black Pelican delivered the food to the end of the paved road, one of my family members met them & transfered the food, and we dropped it into nice steam trays I already owned. The food was delivered at 5 p.m. and we didn't actually get to eat until 8 p.m. I was fearfull the food would taste horrible after 3 hours of sitting in the steam trays but it was FANTASTIC. On request, the Black Pelican undercooked my steaks (fillets) so that they would be perfectly cooked by the time we were ready to eat. This honestly was the best "wedding" food I've ever had because it didn't taste like the stereotypical wedding food (i.e. bad, boring, bland). Everyone raved about how good the food was.

Besides tasting great & holding up for hours, the cost was the BEST I found in the Outer Banks and there was a LOT of food. We ended up with lot of food left over but I would rather too much than to run out as happened at my cousin's wedding in Ohio (before everyone had even been up to the buffet once!)

If I could do my wedding over again I wouldn't think twice about using the Black Pelican for their catering.

I've enjoyed family vacations on the Outer Banks since I was a young girl. Black Pelican is on our short list of great restaurants so it was no surprise that I chose Black Pelican to cater our special day.

Emily from Black Pelican was very professional and resourceful. She worked with me to plan a delicious meal at our reception and tasty appetizers for cocktail hour. Taste and presentation are quite important to me and the team at Black Pelican creatively addressed my requests with flexibility and ease. I knew we were in good hands with Black Pelican!

I would recommend Black Pelicans to other brides, family and friends over and over again. The chicken florentine is fabulous!

We just had our wedding in Duck, NC and Black Pelican was our caterer. Emily Perrot was AMAZING. She was very easy to work with and took the time to customize the catering package to meet our exact needs. She was extremely responsive, which was very important when the anxiety kicks in and last minute changes are needed. The anti pasto selection for the cocktail hour was great. All of our guests loved the spread of cheeses and grilled vegetables. There was something for everyone. The dinner was delicious (prime rib carving station, grilled mahi, risotto and asparagus). Black Pelican provided the food/bartending and made the entire event run smoothly. The staff was very friendly, which does not always happen with large events. I can't say enough good things about Emily and Black Pelican. I would highly recommend Black Pelican for catering!

Black Pelican Catering was great. They helped me every step of the way. When a few unexpected emergencies happened right before my wedding they were flexible with changing my menu to fit into my budget. The food was to die for! We had bartenders as well and the drinks were great and they always made sure to serve the bride, groom and wedding party first before all the guests which I LOVED. I also ordered linens through them and they were the perfect color. I have no complaints with them at all. I worked with somebody named Emily to plan the entire event and she was fantastic. She was great at working with me from such a long distance (Alaska) to plan my wedding in NC. The only complaint I have was that they took the top layer of my cake and instead of giving it to somebody in my wedding party they brought it back to their office and I was unable to retrieve it. It was very dissappointing but it was lack of communication from my baker to my wedding party to my caterer. Nobody asked me during the wedding what I wanted to do with it and by the time they brought it to their office it was too late.

Black Pelican Catering was great. They helped me every step of the way. When a few unexpected emergencies happened right before my wedding they were flexible with changing my menu to fit into my budget. The food was to die for! We had bartenders as well and the drinks were great and they always made sure to serve the bride, groom and wedding party first before all the guests which I LOVED. I also ordered linens through them and they were the perfect color. I have no complaints with them at all. I worked with somebody named Emily to plan the entire event and she was fantastic.

I don't know how or where to begin to explain this catering company. Emily and her staff are much more than perfect! They make planning, setup and teardown so easy. The great touch to the buffet tables and cocktail hour with their covers and decorations added such a nice touch. Emily has been such a joy to work with from afar. I had asked her soooo many questions about how things would be laid out and she said “how ever you want it to be”. Everyone at the wedding mentioned that the food was soooo yummy and the environment that the bar tender gave and the servers were top-notch! The day prior Emily came over to the location and helped us plan a rain and shine plan to the reception. The staff cleaned up so nicely after the wedding that it made it so easy to relax and just call Metro Rental to pick up the dishes the next day. The amount of food and the taste for the cost is what really made it perfect for our wedding. We took home two coolers of food and had dinner for a month after our wedding. I cannot express enough how wonderful Black Pelican Catering is for the Outer Banks venue’s for they will travel and cook anywhere! Not only does Black Pelican Catering work with food but they also become part of your family. Thanks again sweet peas!

We used Black Pelican catering for our rehearsal dinner and I can’t say enough about them. Our rehearsal dinner was held at a beach house and there were no worries. They showed up on time, did a wonderful job displaying the food, the food tasted great and their service was superb. Emily, the catering director, met with us 6 weeks before our event and had a lot of helpful suggestions. She was also able to answer all of our many questions and arrange for the appropriate rentals of chairs, tables etc. It was a great relief to leave everything in Emily’s capable hands. We were a small group of 22, but we had 10 children that ranged in age. The Black Pelican had something for everyone. Thanks again for such relaxing and yummy evening!

I worked with Emily from Black Pelican Catering to provide food for my wedding in September. She was fantastic! From the beginning, she worked with me on planning a menu that worked for us (we ended up doing a mexican buffet, which she helped create and make suggestions for the dishes as well as "centerpieces" for the cocktail hour). She was absolutely fantastic to work with - very responsive and fairly priced! The food on the wedding day was delicious, everyone was happy with the app centerpieces; including chips with guacamole and salsas, shrimp cocktail shooters, and taquitos, and the main dishes including fajitas - chicken, fish, and steak, with rice and beans, and all of the accompanying sides. The servers were very professional, and helpful.

I can say, as a bride that planned the entire wedding from a distance, and going with reviews to pick the vendors that i worked with, I couldn't have found a better caterer! Definitely would recommend Black Pelican!

Emily was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about menu vs budget, etc, and definitely up for answering a million and ten questions from a nervous out-of-state bride. She was also extremely nice, which ranks high in my book. They're located in Kitty Hawk, but they'll travel all up and down the Banks to deliver your food. We had a completely affordable and delicious North Carolina bbq buffet that they staffed and their staff was attentive and polite and seemed genuinely happy to be outside in the sun, sharing our day with us. Black Pelican has wonderful food at their restaurant as well, and their catering is no less delightful. I also truly appreciated their professionalism in arriving on time, setting everything up on their own, packing up the leftovers for us to enjoy the rest of our week in the Banks, and then cleaning up and heading out without direction or difficulty. I couldn't have been more pleased.
