OBX Part 2, The Clambake!


Listen. I’m not one to tell people how they should read blogs, but let me warn you: you are going to want to sit down for this one. When you lay eyes on what I’m about to show you your knees will most certainly buckle and I can’t be held responsible for any crab-leg induced falls. So sit, and let me tell you about one of the happiest days of my 31 years on this planet. Yes, friends. It was the day I experienced Outer Banks Clam Bake.
Outer Banks Clam Bake is a vacation cooking service that comes into your home with amazing food, cooks you a meal so delicious that your eyes nearly pop out of your skull, cleans it up, and leaves you with visions of lobster tails dancing in your head. It’s unreal. Thanks to our partnership with the wonderful Seaside Vacations, we were able to experience OBX Clambake first hand when they came to our Seaside beach house and whipped us up a clam-filled feast.

The whole experience with Outer Banks Clam Bakes was so fun. It was the coolest to have a chef in our kitchen working with this gorgeous seafood, answering our questions and creating such a fabulous meal. It was the perfect way to enjoy the best of OBX seafood while still staying super relaxed on vacation since it allowed us to not worry about making reservations for our size of group at a restaurant (we had 23 people and LOTS of toddlers!).

Not only was the quality of the food unbelievably delicious, the presentation was gorgeous, and they set up AND cleaned up. We literally sat back and watched the chefs work like magicians, sat down and ate and then went back to MORE relaxing. I could get used to it, you guys.

And if this kind of relaxation wasn’t enough, Outer Banks Clam Bakes also has a grocery delivery service so you never have to leave the beach!


One of the chefs straight up took out a knife and carved that watermelon right in front of my face. I could have died. So beautiful! People are the best.


So beautiful, right? Makes me emotional.
Should we talk about the menu? Outer Banks Clam Bake has tons of menu items that you can find here, and we were lucky enough to have a menu that included Crab Legs, Jumbo Shrimp, Little Neck Clams, Corn on the Cob, Red Potatoes with Pearl Onions and Smoked Sausage, Mixed Green Salad, Butter Biscuits, Fresh Fruit Melody and Dessert. There just aren’t enough superlatives in the world to describe it. You just HAVE to try one for yourself and your group next time you book that Seaside Vacations beach house. 


Our experience with Outer Banks Clam Bake was definitely a highlight of our trip and an experience our group will never forget. I can’t recommend them highly enough! We were blown away.

Ugh. Take. Me. Back. Really guys, if you get the chance you have to take this trip. Add it to that bucket list.

Have you booked your OBX trip yet? In case you missed it, you can read more about our beach house and book your own in this post. And be sure to book your OBX clam bake here! Just be sure to add a +1 to your group numbers since I’m coming with you and I don’t want to hear another word about it. (I’ll bring my own sunscreen and promise I won’t be a bother.)

Happy travels!
