Love this place. Great food. Great service. Great View!

This was a gem to find. Fresh baked rolls, tasty sandwiches, great homemade desserts, family friendly. A wonderful lunch menu. Love the home made soups. Can't say enough about this place. It's great and fun. We felt at home!

What a gem, a little hard to find but, like all gems, worth the hunt for it! We ordered the Reuben and Turkey Club which were both AWESOME! Sat at a nice 4 top overlooking the harbor which was beautiful. The staff were absolutely the BEST, premises very clean. Gonna make this place a regular stop whenever we're in the... More

This place was perfect for what I needed. It was a little small when entering it, but the food is absolutely amazing! It sells really good subs, and the potato salad is a must have!

I ate here with my daughter and was pleasantly surprised. Not the cheapest sandwich in town, but I got what I paid for, and it was worth every penny.

The Hungry Pelican is a tasty sandwich shop located in the waterfront area of Manteo. They offer a good selection of sandwiches and salads with some stuff for the kids thrown in. I had the cold plate and all three cold salads ( chicken, pasta and potato) were great. My son ate my boiled egg, his hot dog, his apple... More

We stopped in for a quick bite and were very pleased. Our table was near the window overlooking the boardwalk/harbor in Manteo. We especially loved the windows being open to take in the beautiful day. I had a turkey reuben that was very good. I watched several people enjoy cones of ice cream.

We had been visiting sites around the island and around 2:30 decided we needed some lunch. Our sandwiches were very good. It was ice cream time of the day and with only 1 worker I think our sandwiches were delayed a bit. Other than that, good food, good views, table service!

We ate at this deli while on spring break. Everyone loved their food! I had the cheesy ham melt and my daughter had gourmet grilled cheese. Both were amazing. Th service was great and the views beautiful!

Nearly all of the sandwiches looked good to me, which is unusual. I had the reuben, which was excellent, and my wife had the French dip. What could have made both better was a bit more meat. That said, prices are reasonable (around $7 per sandwich), and the tomato basil soup was good. The staff were very busy, and the... More
