When Danielle Mahon and her family relocated from New Jersey to Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2003, they quickly found a home on Topsail Island for quick beach getaways. Eventually, it would become their permanent residence and put into motion a plan that was long in the making.
Danielle first learned about the art of small business ownership from her father, and always knew that she wanted to follow in his footsteps with a business to call her own. Her many years of cooking with friends and family, as well as a career in sales and account development, paid off when she was able to open Topsail Steamer, a fresh seafood hotspot located in Surf City. She’d toyed with the idea of bringing her love of coastal cuisine to the professional forefront, and when her plans to move aligned with her desire to start her own business, Danielle simply couldn’t resist bringing her plans to fruition. With the support of her family and the rest of the “steam team” including her daughter Emily and son Jimmy, Topsail Steamer has become a popular spot in the area and Danielle has been able to spread her love of cooking and community. Danielle opened her second location in Wrightsville Beach in May 2018.
Danielle’s goal is to offer each customer that walks through Topsail Steamer’s door 3 things….Quality, Convenience and Experience. We deliver quality by sourcing high quality and local seafood, we offer the convenience of doing all the prep for you, providing simple cooking instructions and offering 3 simple ways to order. And we encourage you to enjoy the experience by rolling out the paper on the table, gathering around to enjoy a seafood feast and lingering just a little longer with your friends and family! You can call in, order online or stop in and Topsail Steamer will prepare your bucket while you wait. The Bay Buckets are assembled with one of our signature combinations or one that’s all your own in our convenient one-time use pots that make for simple, yet delicious meals on relaxed nights in.
