First i will say that in my opinion there is no better place for fresh local food than Basnight's and I visit every trip I take to OBX. They were the obvious choice for catering my reception, but i never thought i could make it work with my budget. Their catering manager... Read More fielded probably a dozen email throughout the past year from me as I tried to figure out what I could afford, how I could make a small afternoon hors d'oeuvre reception work and fit in my budget. Each time, I was answered promptly, professionally and cordially, even though I felt like a pest they never made me feel like one. Finally, once I got a grasp on what it was I wanted, they gave me options, and we did take out trays. I was fully prepared to have to transfer those items to nicer service pieces at the reception hall and even had family on stand by to help with that. The food was so scrumptious and so beautifully arranged there was absolutely no need!! We supplemented our selections with a few family favorites and made our own cupcakes. I whole heartedly recommend Basnight's whether you can (ideally) have them do a total catering package, or even if you have then prepare a few key pieces, they will treat you very well and will absolutely please the palette!!

My Husband and I have always loved to eat at this restaurant, so when we were planning our wedding it was one of the first options we explored. They have a large menu with a wide array of options to meet many different tastes and budgets. They were absolutely wonderful to... Read More communicate and work with and the food was beyond delicious! Food was the second most expensive part of our wedding so we really felt like there was a lot riding on it- they did not disappoint! Our guests raved about the food all night and have continued to talk about it in the weeks following our wedding. I even had a family member email me a month later seeing if I could get a recipe for one of the appetizers. It was a great comfort knowing it was money well spent! We also ended up doing cupcakes from Lone Cedar which we weren't able to taste test in advance which was nerve-wracking but they were also delicious and beautiful. I highly recommend Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe. They are wonderful communicators, kind people, and make delicious food.
