Top Choices in the OBX Chowder Cookoff

By on April 19, 2021

We have a winner. Actually multiple winners. This year’s OBX Chowder Cookoff — part of the OBX Taste of the Beach festivities — had to be reinvented to accommodate COVID restrictions. And the judging had two components. Fifteen restaurants participated in the event, with the public able to pick up cups of chowder and then vote for their favorite chowder during a live Zoom event on April 18.

Just before the Zoom event, a small group of judges also gathered to make their own selections.

  • The “People’s Choice” winners are: First Place, Ocean Boulevard; Second Place, Saltbox Café; Third Place, Blue Moon Beach Grill.
  • The judges’ winners are: First Place, Saltbox Café; Second Place, Ocean Boulevard; Third Place, Outer Banks Brewing Station.

As part of that event, the participating restaurants also produced a quick 20-30 second video of the chef describing the chowders.
