  • We have been coming to the outer banks for years and knew that the Black Pelican was who we wanted to cater our Obx wedding! From the very beginning, Jennifer and the rest of the Black Pelican catering team were professional, responsive, and very easy to work with. They answered all of our many questions and made sure we had everything we needed for the day of! Even when we had to change plans last minute because of Covid, their team did so flawlessly. Not only is the Black Pelican catering team fantastic to work with, the food is out of this world!! Our guests are still raving about the meal! I would highly recommend the Black Pelican to anyone having their wedding in the outer banks!

  • Black Pelican was quick to respond when I began reaching out to caterers for our wedding. They were able to work with our budget and provided wonderful catering service, including beautiful, high quality plastic ware at a good price. Our guests absolutely raved about our food! I was told it was the best wedding food at least one person had ever had. I can't say enough good things.

  • Jennifer, Summer, and the rest of the Black Pelican catering team did a great job with our wedding catering. The food was delicious and the wedding catering ran smoothly the day of. Jennifer and Summer were extremely responsive and helpful prior to the wedding day. We ended up doing a pie table with pies from the Black Pelican instead of a wedding cake and the guests loved it. I would highly recommend Black Pelican for any Outer Banks wedding. Thank you again Black Pelican!!!

  • Went to a food tasting and it was out of this world! Myself and two others were very pleasured with the quality and flavor of the food. Sometimes food isn't the same day of, but I can't tell you how many people complimented the food. Everyone came from at least 6hours away and they all were super pleased. No a single bad thing was said regarding the catering. Bartender was quick to provided asked for drinks. The employees were attentive to guests. During the process leading up to the wedding, the catering team was quick to reply to emails and provide tons of feedback and recommendations. Even when not getting alcohol from them, they recommended a way for me to calculate the amount needed. Everything with this company is amazing. They even worked with me during the payment process. For example, I made the final payment on time only to realize I had forgotten to include my husband and myself, it was no issue to add the two of us and apply the new total/payment. I would absolutely recomme... Read more

  • Couldn't of been happier with the food from Black Pelican for my wedding day. Many of my guests came up to me to tell me that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! I'm a chef from up in Michigan so letting go and letting another company completely take care of the food for my wedding was really hard, but they did not disappoint!! They will also work with you on the menu and make modifications to fit what you want, I adjusted the salad and a dressing and the butter on our steak and they did everything exactly how I wanted. Couldn't be happier with the food and service that night!! If you are from another state and are looking for a caterer, GO WITH BLACK PELICAN!! You will be so happy and relieved that you did!

  • The food is top notch for a great price. My experience with them was stress free and super organized. When my husband and I went to the tasting, they were so polite and attentive. They also let us take home leftovers so we could enjoy their great food later. I'm so happy Tony Joseph (Idoobxweddings), our officiant, recommended them. They had the biggest variety to pick from than any other vendor I have seen. They delivered right on time for the reception. They are timely, organized, polite, and had an amazing selection of high quality foods. Their chef knows how to create some great dishes and combines great flavors.

  • We hired the Black Pelican for a delivery to cater our wedding and it was one of the best choices we made! Everyone at our reception was raving about the food and there was barely any left. Quite a few of our guests told us that it was the best wedding food that they have had! Their catering team went above and beyond and were so quick at responding! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. We couldn’t have been more happy with our decision! (P.s. get the BBQ chicken, it is to die for!)

  • Black pelican catering went above and beyond at my wedding on 5.4.19. There aren’t enough words to say how amazing everything was. The food was a priority for me when planning our wedding because that is something your guests will remember when it’s over. Jennifer, the catering coordinator was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely professional, very responsive, and made sure everything ran smoothly at our wedding. Even a month later, our guests are STILL raving about how good the food was. If you are looking for great service & food at a decent price, Black Pelican is your go to! You get what you pay for & we are SO glad we went with the Black Pelican Catering team. Thank you guys SO much for everything!

  • Thank you very much for the AMAZING food & service provided for my wedding!!!! Your team went above and beyond throughout the entire process. Jen & Nancy were SO amazing - happy to answer any questions we had and really did help bring our vision to life. The food was SO DELICIOUS and many of my guests raved about it saying that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding! The service you provided was outstanding and it made this special day successful. They even had the servers wear pink bowties for our wedding to fit in with the 'princess/fairytale' theme we had going on. It was honestly a dream come true and it would've never happened without Black Pelican! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  • We used Black Pelican to cater our wedding at Jennette's Pier. We loved them! They were easy to work with, always responded back to me in a timely manner and answered any questions I had throughout the planning process. The food was amazing and all of our guest loved it! I would recommend them to anyone planning a wedding in the OBX.

  • The title says it all! It's just an added bonus that it happened to be our wedding! Seriously, the whole Black Pelican crew are amazing. The show up and work so hard. The food is fresh and delicious. They clean it all up and leave whatever food is left in organized containers for you to take with you. If you are unable to taste test because you are booking a destination wedding then you are in great hands with Black Pelican. They give you exactly what you want and customize the menu to whatever YOU want to serve. We had so many of our guests reach out to tell us how amazing the food was.

  • We received endless compliments about how delicious our wedding food - many of our guests have been to endless high end bougie New Jersey, and said we had the best wedding food they have ever had! We had an overall amazing experience with Jennifer and Black Pelican - I would definitely recommend. One hiccup we did have was that we checked if our mixers package would work for making margaritas, my signature drink, and was told it would, but then day of a friend had to run out for margarita mix! All ended up fine, but I would spend extra time checking on those details. Otherwise - they were allstars and we had an amazing experience.
