2020 Expo Sponsor Spotlight | Steamers
The 2020 Outer Banks Wedding Weekend and Expo is just around the corner! Event sponsors help us create an amazing two-day show and tour for you, and we are honored to feature Platinum Sponsor Steamers on the blog. Make plans to visit them at their Expo booth on Saturday, March 7 and stay tuned for details on the always anticipated Sunday, March 8 Wedding Tour!
How long have you been involved with weddings on the Outer Banks?
Steamers first opened in Corolla in 1994. We started as a dine-in restaurant that wanted to bring the feel of a metropolitan restaurant to a small town on the beach, serving local classics. Since then, we’ve prepared our fair share of Steamer Pots To GoÓ Clambakes, and have also extended our restaurant to include both Personal Chef and Catering Services in 2006. We are now conveniently located in Southern Shores. Drop in for a visit and we’d be happy to answer any questions you have about our catering services.

What makes the Outer Banks unique and special to you?
Having been a local trademark since 1994, we deeply appreciate our returning vacationers and customers. The thought that families and friends choose to dine with us, or use our services, time after time really makes us feel like we are doing something right. We also enjoy being able to support other local businesses, such as the Wanchese, NC Fishing Fleet where we obtain all of our fresh seafood.
What separates Steamers from other local vendors?
We really do our best to go above and beyond for our customers. Through our catering website (cateringobx.com), you can request a quote with any other special requests and personalized menu options you had in mind for your wedding rehearsal, reception and everything in between. We also include preparation, service and clean-up.
What are you most looking forward to about the 2020 Wedding Weekend?
There is a real sense of community here on the Outer Banks. Being able to see the other local vendors and businesses that work with weddings on the Outer Banks is such a treat. During the busy season, it is hard to make time to keep up and see how everyone else is doing. It is the perfect opportunity to build and maintain those relationships that are essential to our business. We also love seeing all of the happy brides and grooms from all over and being able to inform them about our services and how we can make their destination wedding perfect!
Do you have any advice for a couple planning on booking your catering services?
Our chef, Chris Braswell, is an artist in everything he creates. He really can take the local fresh flavors and create culinary masterpieces. Our advice would be to browse our catering menus, as well as our other menus to figure out what you and your guests would enjoy when the time comes! And keep in mind, we’re always happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions.
Please provide any other information about yourself/business that a couple MUST know?
Steamers’ OBX catering team covers all locations from Carova to Hatteras. If it’s on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Steamers can help you create a unique and special dining experience.
