New here? Let's get you started:


what is a boil?

Jumbo Shrimp, authentic andouille sausage, red bliss potatoes, corn on the cob and sweet Vidalia onions are layered, seasoned (with our own special blend) to perfection and expertly cooked together. Served with our homemade cocktail sauce the Outer Banks Boil Company has been dubbed the "Best Pot on the Beach". We pride ourselves on providing quality, fresh and when available, local ingredients. Our authentic andouille sausage is shipped up from Louisiana. Want to take it up a notch? You can add seafood such as snow crab legs, clams, mussels, scallops, and lobster tails!

3 ways to enjoy the best pot on the beach:

 We Steam - catering 

We show up an hour before you want to eat, set-up all the equipment and start cooking for your entire group. Sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite beverage while we cook and entertain you and your guests. When cooking is complete, we drop all the yummy goodness onto a table (yours or ours) fully equipped with table cloth, plates, forks, knives, and all the other essential utensils and fix-ins for our Signature Seafood Boil. While you enjoy the meal, we clean up our equipment and share local knowledge. When everyone is finished, we help bag up your leftovers, clean the table and dispose of any trash and even take it all away leaving you with nothing but a full belly and a vacation memory you'll be talking about long after you leave the Outer Banks.
