What’s an Outer Banks Clam Bake?

An Outer Banks Personal Chef Guide

Our Specialty: Local Outer Banks Clam Bake

We love the fact that we live and work here on the Outer Banks, and we take pride in integrating locally sourced seafood and veggies into our clients' wedding and event menus. One of our all-time favorite meal styles? The New England Clambake.

Traditionally, a clambake is an all-day affair that involves lots of fresh seafood and pits filled with hot rocks and seaweed. At Ten O Six catering, we’ve put our own spin on this long-standing tradition, developing a more contemporary-style clambake experience.

Ten O Six Clam Bakes

An Outer Banks’ clambake is a fun and delicious way to celebrate summer or any other special occasion. It’s perfect for large outdoor parties, vacation home gatherings, or even out-of-the-box office parties.  

And don’t worry - it’s not just clams. Our clambakes also feature shrimp, corn on the cob, potatoes, andouille sausage, homemade salads, drawn butter, and more.

We come, set up, and take care of everything while you sit back and enjoy!
