  • Steve and his staff were amazing! The food was also very good and fit in perfectly with our theme. We had a mix of seafood and country classic in our menu. Everything from the taste test to the final product was carefully planned out.

  • New owners - brides beware. We met the previous owners at the Outer Banks Wedding Expo in January, 2017. On May 6th we received an e-mail explaining that the business had been sold and contact information for the new owners. I spoke with them numerous times over the phone and e-mail from June, 2017 to September, 2017. We met with the new owners in September to firm up the menu and schedule which went well. A week later we received an e-mail stating that they would be breaching the contract we had with the original owners and would be taking another job the night of our wedding. Luckily, we found another caterer that we are pleased to be working with at a much better rate. I cannot speak to the quality of their food or service, however, the professionalism and business acumen left more to be desired with the new owners.

  • Steve and Susan should be the first people you talk to when planning your event. Not only were they easy to work with and just all around great people, but they go beyond helping you think through the catering to the planning of the actual event. They were able to give immediate estimates for service as well as providing us advice on how to save money in the process. They were very responsive to email and phone calls leading up to the event and gave very precise directions on setup to ensure a perfect event. I cannot begin to describe how delicious the food was, and I received nothing but high praise from all of the guests in attendance. I am looking forward to planning my next event in the outer banks just for the opportunity to talk to Steve and his amazing staff again.

  • Everything about our experience was exceptional. Our request was last minute and they accommodated us in every way possible. The food was delicious - we had pork tenderloin and crab cakes that got rave reviews. The portions were HUGE. The value was unbelievable as the price was very fair for such high quality food displayed absolutely beautiful. I would recommend them to anyone who needs catering for any event. Top-notch people and company.

  • Nine times out of ten the food at a wedding is fair. I was totally impressed with the food catered by The Good Life Gourmet. By far it was the best wedding food I have ever eaten. The appetizers were amazing especially the crab cakes and jumbo shrimp cocktail. One entree was better than the next! I highly recommend serving the grilled Mahi Mahi with mango salsa and the stuffed chicken breast. Fresh, juicy, and delicious! Chef Steve and his staff were very friendly and attentive to all of our needs. What a great experience! Definitely a winner.

  • Love, Love, Love The Good Life! Chef Steve cooks the most amazing food! His wife, Susie, is also so sweet and is very responsive in all the planning leading up to the wedding. Not only did Steve cater my wedding, but he also has catered our family reunions in OBX. My family loves all of his food! Cinnamon buns for breakfast and barbecue ribs are my favorite! I would definitely recommend The Good Life for weddings or any other event!

  • Chef Steve is Amazing!!!! We have been booking him for family reunions for the last 7 years; just last week, he catered a family wedding. The food is always outstanding, whether it be his DELICIOUS homemade Cinnamon buns or his amazing Prime Rib & Mahi Mahi (grilled to order while you wait). Steve and his staff are wonderful, tending to everyone's wants and needs. The man cannot make, a bad meal; everything is perfectly prepared to order. If you're looking for outstanding catering and personable staff, you have found the right place - The Good Life Gourmet!

  • How does a vendor get a 5 star rating ? This is how. Chef Steve and Susie made my daughters wedding so beautiful and just delicious that I would recommend this vendor. Besides doing my daughters wedding he has made many customized meals for all our family reunions for the past 7 years. His attention to details and his excellent staff made the event a success. The carving station with the prime rib was outstanding, homemade roasted potatoes , mac and cheese, deviled eggs were some of my favorites . He grills the Mai Mai at the buffet station right in front of you , not hours before to sit in a pan . It's fresh and so very good with the mango salsa. The planning was conducted in Kitty Hawk at his restaurant, The Good Life, where you can try some of his daily specials. Home made cinnamon buns , Mmmm good ! His organization and cleanliness of his restaurant is evident at the wedding. He personally manages the event to be sure everything is done correctly and with a service that exemplif... Read more

  • Steve and Susan are the best! We enjoyed having them cater our wedding and would recommend them for anyone. Steve is so accommodating and we always refered to him as our "wedding planner" because he gave us so many suggestions and advice that had nothing to do with food at all. Food wise, what we loved about Steve is that he is open to cooking every recipe you can provide to him and allows your family to help with certain items. We had a wedding with one party from Germany and Steve and his team helped us put together a menu containing Schnitzel, German cake, German sides, and much more. He even helped us find authentic German food and Beer in the Outer Banks! We had a Sausage slider bar on the dance floor at 10 PM which our guests still talk to us about. Lastly, Steve is very helpful when it comes to budgets. We started with our "best case scenario" and then trimmed it down to a great menu that fit into our budget. Again, we would recommend Steve and Susan to everyone who is looking ... Read more

  • We were so happy to have chosen The Good Life Gourmet for our beach front wedding! Steve helped us customize our ideal Surf & Turf dinner to serve to our guests and stayed within our price point. The food was delicious and the service was great! The servers were so helpful in every way and went above our expectations! Steve personally attended our event, helped to serve our dinner buffet and helped with cutting our wedding cake! He was definitely hands on from the first day I talked to him into the night of our event! I would highly recommend The Good Life Gourmet for your wedding event!
