Former Conshohocken residents Pat and Lisa Traver opened the Outer Banks Boil Company at 1309 West Avenue in Ocean City, New Jersey on June 10th. The catering and to-go restaurant specializes in seafood boils and is part of a small chain that originated in Carolla, North Carolina. The company started as a college project and now has nine locations along the eastern seaboard.
The couple lived in Conshohocken (approximately 2003 to 2010) after meeting and graduating from the University of Scranton. They now live in Blue Bell. They discovered the Outer Banks Boil Company through a friend and then having enjoyed a boil during a subsequent vacation on the Outer Banks
What exactly is a boil? From the company’s website:
Jumbo Shrimp, spicy 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 spicy 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 and lobster tail
