We chose Coastal Provisions to cater our wedding and we couldn't have been any more satisfied. Nina was very helpful throughout the whole process. We met with her 5 months before the wedding and she brought up a lot of things that we never even thought of and helped us come up with the perfect timeline for the day of the wedding. She was very professional and knew what she was talking about. She helped make our day perfect. The food was absolutely delicious. We had lobster tail and filet mignon, and everything was cooked and prepared perfectly. All of our guests were raving about the food. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone. They did a great job and we couldn't have been more pleased with their services.

I never write reviews, however I had such a horrible experience with Nina and the catering department at Coastal Provisions, I couldn't go without sharing my experience. They catered my 100 person wedding in a home on the 4x4 area. I traveled down to meet with Nina 10 months before my event and Nina was very disorganized and didn't have her computer or a notebook to make any documentation of what we discussed. Her customer service was the worst I have ever dealt with! To get any email response, it took at least 6-8 weeks to hear back and the 3 times I did hear from her, she never made the correct changes on the quote. Well, 30 days before the wedding, when full payment was due, we contacted Nina to get the final cost, and we did not hear back from her until 2 weeks before the wedding. At that point, I was keeping my fingers crossed that they would even show up. Come the night before the wedding, she texted us to ask us if we rented chafing dishes!! I spoke with her that evening and she said she just wanted to make sure we got them. I was upset at this point and asked her why would I rent chafing dishes....I would just assume she would provide them. Silly me! On my wedding day...guess who doesn't show up! Nina! They tried putting the cold shrimp out an hour and a half before the cocktail hour in the 80 degree sun, which would have spoiled those shrimp in a matter of no time. Fortunately a friend, who works in the business, made sure that didn't happen and had to monitor how they handled all the other food they prepped. Then, they were scheduled at 7:30 to cut and serve our cake (which we paid for)....well 6:15 comes and they are all packed up and leaving. We rushed that part because the caterer’s were not going to stay. Our parents ended up missed out on us cutting as a result. My wedding was amazing however I would never suggest anyone use Coastal Provisions due to the added stress and lack of communication and compassion on Nina's part.

When we first started this process, we were consider two major caterers. We can't be happier with the group we selected. From the tasting with the owner, to having Nina help us throughout the process and ensure things would be sufficient, it was a great experience. I would recommend Coastal Provisions to EVERYONE who is considering a wedding in the Outer Banks. Check the out FIRST and you'll be satisfied. The others try to sell you, were not responsive and honestly lacked courtesy in some cases as if they were bothered. Coastal was awesome, accomplished whatever you needed, provided a great staff and was just purely great people.

Coastal Provisions was an absolute excellent choice to cater our wedding. All of the food for our wedding was delicious, fresh, warm, and high quality. Our guests loved the food and the menu we were able to offer. Their wait staff was very professional, friendly, and attentive. Their management was very flexible to work with, fun, and understanding of getting the most for our money and working with our budget. The only knock on them is their responsiveness to our questions, we had to chase them down a lot and wait for their responses. If we had to do it all again, we would go with Coastal Provisions 9.9 times out of 10.

My only complaint was that they are very busy and it is difficult to get in touch with the Catering Manager. It all worked out fine though and she met us at the venue the day before to ease my worry. The staff was friendly and helpful. We even took our family to one of their other restaurants a few days later to enjoy their food.

We used Coastal Provisions for both rehearsal and reception. We had so much food both times. They delivered on Friday night and dropped it off. We did the Italian Night with baked ziti, Caesar salad, and garlic bread. I wasn't wowed. Not that it was bad, it just wasn't anything to write home about. We had enough leftover for pretty much the entire house and wedding party to have lunch the next day while getting ready. At the reception we had NC BBQ and we already knew how fantastic their BBQ was and they delivered as usual (you better believe I ate it!!). We also had mashed potatoes, salad, veggie medley, rolls, and the bluegrass slaw. For apps we had caprese skewers (moz, tomato, and an olive), a fruit and cheese display, and crab cakes. I only ate those as leftovers but even cold and leftover the crabcakes were amazing. Again a ton and a half of leftovers and since we were at Pelican's Landing, everything was just boxed up and in the fridge for the next day. The staff was absolutely a dream to work with. They made up our plates for us even though it was buffet and came over to us with a huge plate of apps to ask if we wanted them now or boxed up for us. They also took away our plates and boxed the leftovers up in special bride and groom boxes. One of the servers even saved the champagne cork for us.

Amazing food, amazing service!!!! Coastal Provisions Catering actually was part of my venue (Pelican's Landing) and I'm soo glad that they were! Their food is absolutely delicious and was served steaming hot. I worked with Nina to plan our wedding menu and they were great in recommending food for us that would work with our time/season of our wedding while also matching our personally likes in taste of food. They were extremely flexible in the menu and working with last minute adjustments (adding and deleting guests).

I highly recommend them for your catering and service for any event - you won't be disappointed!!!!

We hired Coastal Provisions to cater of rehearsal dinner in an event home. While never eating there before the event we heard about them through a friend who frequently visits OBX. I contacted them ten days before the event and they had no issues working with us. Their prices are outstanding and the food is absolutely delicious. I've seen some reviews that their responsiveness is lacking but we had no issues what so ever with that. Like I said we gave them 10 days notice and they delivered with no issue after swapping e-mails regularly. The only reason I gave them a 4.5 in service is because they forgot to bring plasticware which was not an issue and they refunded that money immediately. Outstanding food and very budget friendly.

Nina at Coastal Provisions Market in Southern Shores, NC was our point of contact for our Bridal Luncheon. They were able to exceed our expectations and stay within our budget. They worked really well with arranging our tables to fit 24 people. The food was superb and the glasses of mimosas were never empty. They allowed us to bring in our own decorations and decorate the way we wanted to and made the space feel like our own. We were able to communicate our wishes from out of state with no problem!

We chose Coastal Provisions Market as our caterer for many reasons. Their food tastes amazing. They offer a free tasting for entrees and appetizers that you would like to try once you reserve your date with them. Everything truly is delicious. They have many packages to choose from and will help you adjust each package to your liking. They offer great value for their services. Thier staff were very friendly and always professional. The only issue that we had was communication. There were lapses in time without any communication and we always felt like we had to "nag" to get an answer. Being an out of state bride I always felt the need to be organized and on top of things. The lack in communication and responsiveness was my only gripe.
As a side note, we got married the weekend of hurricane Irene. Everything was very chaotic and stressful. We had to move our wedding up a day. Coastal Provisions Market was so understanding. They not only agreed to come a day early, but they were able to provide us with full service including chef, bartenders, and waiters. We are so grateful that they were flexible and accomodating.

Scott and Dan were amazing at working within our budget, and since I have a gluten intolerance, they made sure that I could eat nearly everything at the wedding! (My husband really wanted crabcakes, so we made those non-gluten-free.) ;) They went out of their way to have a special mustard for the mustard slaw that accompanied our main course of pulled pork (with gluten-free BBQ sauce!) and saw to it that all of our seafood appetizers were made with wheat-free soy sauce. And all of it was absolutely delicious! No one else knew it was gluten-free! Mexican Cokes were also a big hit. Their staff was wonderful and courteous, and had a plate of food brought to my husband and I while our after-ceremony photos were being taken, as well as having a plate left in our room for the end of the night. We actually got to eat our food - and it was amazing! Thanks, Scott and Dan!

We booked CPM for 2 events, our rehearsal dinner and our wedding dinner. At the beginning all was great. Scott is enthusiastic about food and has wonderful ideas on menu selections. Scott is the co-owner/chef so he eventually passed the planning over to Nina. Responsiveness at the beginning was a bit rough. No return emails or calls. But once the events grew closer things got better. Nina was not as good as Scott as helping with food ideas, as she usually just picked of their printed menu for suggestions. They had no problems working with our budget, which was helpful. Ask about everything you need to rent way in advance. Even though I did, I was still surprised late in the game that I had to rent trays (both small and large) and tray stands for a caterer. It was day of that we ran into problems. Rehearsal dinner, which was a crab feast/BBQ for 54 people, they arrived 1.5 hours late with no call. And Scott, who was supposed to be our chef, was not. No one mentioned he wasn't coming even the night before when I stopped by to make payment. The crab feast that they said they do all the time didn't go so well. Mike, the new chef, wouldn't give a crab cracking lesson ("I'm from NY and don't know how to eat those things"). Nina convinced me to hire 2 servers instead of one for the 54 people. We set the tables and had to ask the servers to do everything: asked them to put crabs on each table, asked them to empty the crab trash, asked them to put condiments on tables (all basic server things some of which were specifically written out in the contract). They didn't even serve drinks. Ath the end of the night, they did clean up the tables quickly. But not sure what we paid them for as most of it was a buffet. As for the wedding, a different crew came (but still not Scott, who again was supposed to be our chef). This night went a lot smoother as Dan (the co-owner) was our chef. We had a sit down dinner for 54 people outside at a rental home. A few mishaps, no salt and pepper set on tables, even after I asked. The family table got served last, and late even after they asked for their food. They served cake in the dinning room when I indicated it would be served to guests outdoors at the tables. The cocktail hour food was wonderful (tuna pica, crab cakes, bloody mary shrimp), but the dinner was just average and the plates didn't present very well. We had filet with pasta and chicken with potatoes. I was slightly disappointed. But like I said, so much better than the rehearsal dinner. Oh - and we purchased 2 vendor meals for the DJ and photographer and most the way through they said they weren?t given a meal. I told them both they should have one, but I am not sure if that ever happened. I felt really bad about that but it was also in the contract. Overall, I'm thankful for Dan taking over on our wedding day; things did go so much better. I'm sure some of the logistical errors could have been eliminated if better communication of the contract or no last minute substitutions were made. I don't know what happened that weekend but just want you to be aware of some things that could occur. I guess I was expecting a bit more.

The family table got served last, and late even after they asked for their food. They served cake in the dinning room when I indicated it would be served to guests outdoors at the tables. The cocktail hour food was wonderful (tuna pica, crab cakes, bloody mary shrimp), but the dinner was just average and the plates didn't present very well. We had filet with pasta and chicken with potatoes. I was slightly disappointed. But like I said, so much better than the rehearsal dinner. Oh - and we purchased 2 vendor meals for the DJ and photographer and most the way through they said they weren?t given a meal. I told them both they should have one, but I am not sure if that ever happened. I felt really bad about that but it was also in the contract. Overall, I'm thankful for Dan taking over on our wedding day; things did go so much better. I'm sure some of the logistical errors could have been eliminated if better communication of the contract or no last minute substitutions were made. I don't know what happened that weekend but just want you to be aware of some things that could occur. I guess I was expecting a bit more. Read less

Coastal Provisions was a really terrific choice for us. I had a destination wedding and came to the Outer Banks on 2 occasions to do planning. Nina and Scott did 2 tastings for us at no charge. At the second tasting they also cooked for my parents and allowed all of us to try their signature rosa regale and chocolate pave toast.
All of the servers and bartenders were professional and kind. The lead server went out of her way to ensure that my husband and I got plates of food during our post-wedding photo session.
I give kudos to Nina and Scott for their creative food ideas. We wanted no part in typical wedding fare. They created a series of stations that included:
A make your own bruschetta bar
A skewer station with jerk pork, thai beef and coconut chicken
A seafood bar with several types of oysters (best being fried oyster with wasabi mashed potatoes and ginger cream), maryland crabcakes, gazpacho with blue crab salad, scallop ceviche
A skillet station with pancetta wrapped bbq shrimp and rosemary skewered scallops
A chocolate fountain

Nina artfully arranged the tables and the food looked so beautiful.

I second the previous reviewers advice to try their sandwiches one day as well. The brieLT is NOT to be missed.

Thanks to Nina and Scott for helping us to provide a wedding meal that guests enjoyed eating!

Delicious food! Excellent service! Wonderful staff!

Nina and Scott from CPM were outstanding! Nina was always very responsive and organized - overall, she was great to work with. Scott and his cooking staff were also tremendous. They went out of their way to build us a menu that we couldn't find anywhere else in the Outer Banks. Since we had been looking for food with an Asian flair, we were very limited in our catering selection. We went to CPM first and they set the bar very, very high. Scott whipped up 7 dishes for our tasting that exactly met our criteria. Not only did they have the Asian flavors we were looking for, but they were also delicious!

Figuring out the final menu took a little bit, but working with Nina was so easy. She made sure to keep track of all the changes and once we got our final headcount, she helped us finalize the both the servings and our rental needs (which was critical for us).

Even if CPM isn't exactly what you're looking for in a wedding caterer, I highly recommend going in there for their prepared food section. All of the food is delicious, but I particularly recommend their BrieLT sandwich - it's heavenly!!

Presentation, spectacular. Food, absolutely delicious. I couldn't have picked friendlier people to work with. They did everything from pouring all my champagne to lighting my tiki torches and candles. They went above and beyond with no extra hidden costs. Nina, YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Thank you so much for making my special day DE-LIC-IOUS!!
