Outer Banks Catering - Clambake

When you think of catering here in the Outer Banks, a clambake probably doesn’t jump to mind. However, with the right company, you too can enjoy this traditional festive meal without any hassle or fuss. If you’re not acquainted with what a clambake is, or what this option can provide for your event, it’s time you learned.


In the past, a clambake was an all-day affair. Pits were dug and then lined with hot rocks and seaweed, and all the food was cooked en masse. However, you’ll find that with Outer Banks catering, a clambake can be much different. You get all the taste and fun, but none of the mess or fuss. Whether your group is 10 or 100 people, a clambake is an ideal option.

Many people who have never experienced a clambake for themselves are under the impression that the main ingredient is clams. That’s actually not the case. You’ll find a range of delicious seafood and vegetables. Blue crab, shrimp, corn on the cob, butter, sausage, mussels, potatoes, onions and more all combine to create a mouthwatering riot of flavors.

More Options Available

If you decide that you want to work with a company specializing in Outer Banks catering, a clambake can be arranged that’s a good deal more contemporary, but also includes other meal options. For instance, Ten O Six offers you the ability to add appetizers and salads, as well as add-on items for those in your group who might not be seafood lovers. We can provide a taco bar, as well as BBQ chicken, and several different dessert options. It’s a delicious way to have a very different catering event.
