Where to get Good Local Outer Banks Seafood?

  • Local Outer Banks Seafood

For most vacationers’ good local Outer Banks seafood is a must while they are here!

Yes, you can go out and stand in line and get served a delicious meal at one of the many Outer Banks Restaurants. Or like many seasoned OBX vacationers you enjoy the comforts of your vacation home while dining and hanging out with the family.

If you are the latter, however you will quickly find out that most Outer Banks vacation homes' kitchens are not equipped with the proper cooking tools to prepare and cook a delicious local seafood meal.

So here are a couple of ways to get Local Outer Banks Seafood without standing in the long lines at a restaurant and losing valuable vacation time with your family:

  1. Purchase your Seafood from a Local Market or restaurant that offers carryout.
    Most local markets get their seafood daily from local fisherman/crabbers/clammers/oysterers.

    Some even offer for a small fee the option to get your local seafood steamed or fried. Don’t be sold that this needs to be an extra fee.

  2. Hiring a Personal Chef Service
    Hiring a personal chef for most sounds like a luxury service but once you add up the time that it takes to get your family off the beach, washed up, dressed, travel time to the restaurant, time waiting for a table for your group --- it can easily take up about 3-4 hours of your night. Not including the wait time for the meal to come, time for Uncle Dave to finish his 3 scotch drinks he consumes while eating dinner.

    Oh yeah, don't forget about the kids getting restless and tired.

    With all that being said I know hiring a personal chef does not sound like too much of a luxury item. Also when you check out the pricing of Ten O Six’s Outer Banks Personal Chef services you will see that the cost is really comparable to the cost of your restaurant visit with a lot less headache and a more personalized service with a customized menu!
