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

Came here for lunch after shopping in Manteo. Kids meals are perfect, with applesauce and graham cracker snacks. Our sandwiches were delicious. Save room for a brownie!

We took a trip to the aquarium today and decided to go here for lunch. Cute place on the water, great sandwiches. I had the Reuben and it was delicious. My husband had the New Yorker and he liked it alot. Great service, relaxed atmosphere.

My wife & I had a great lunch here while exploring downtown Manteo. It is a no-frills restaurant for sandwiches, soups & drinks. The staff were friendly and attentive. The sandwiches were made with care. And it was easy on the budget. Overall...a great place for a high-quality quick, nutritious meal. And for all you Jimmy Buffet fans, a trip... More

I have been to The Hungry Pelican numerous times during my trips to the OBX. Definitely worth the drive over the bridge to have lunch here and to check out the view of the waterfront. Their sandwiches are amazing, the soup (especially the tomato basil) is to die for, and the view of the waterfront is relaxing and serene. My... More

Took a ride up to Manteo. Visited many great shops including Oh Yappy Days! It obviously caters to dogs and was a fun store to go in. The owner was very helpful and friendly. He is the one who recommended The Hungry Pelican. We both had a cup of french onion soup and a garden salad. The soup was delicious... More
