We had our dog with us and were able to eat lunch out back by the water at a picnic table. BLT sub with fries was average but plentiful. Tuna salad with a side of grocery store deli-style potato salad was plentiful but the tuna salad was a little watery. The wait staff was friendly and under the same circumstances... More

Food was great. I had the turkey sandwich and my friend had the BLT. Excellent. Service was really slow. My friend & I ordered right after one another. She had her food ~5 minutes after she ordered. I waited another 5-10 minutes, finally asked, and my food had been sitting to the side the whole time. Not right. The scenery,... More

Me and a few friends from raleigh decided to take a shot trip for the weekend and happened to stumble across this place. The prices, food, and staff were amazing, even had a chat with the owner who was also super friendly. We all received our food within no time after our order. Will definitely be back again come summer... More

This is the perfect spot for lunch/dinner overlooking the waterfront. It is very inexpensive and their reubens are the best!

We walked here from where we were staying at the White Doe Inn. On Thursday night there was a trivia contest. I had the sailor sandwich and my wife had a salad. Both were excellent! At some tourist you feel like an outsider. Here, the locals accepted us as one of their own at the contest and we had a... More

If you want the best food in town follow the locals and this is where you will land. Great sandwich, amazing soup, and fun atmosphere.

The decor is local history, the atmosphere is defiantly casual, and the food is great. If you're in downtown Manteo and looking for a quick bite I highly recommend Poor Richard's. The nightlife can be fun too with a late night menu, trivia night, and karaoke.

Love the nighttime music with the locals and good beer on tap. The tuna on rye is to die for. The service is pretty slow so be prepared for that. Lastly, Billy Raney is a local and does a few shows a week. He is worth a listen with a great soulful voice.

Stopped here for breakfast and had omelets and hashbrowns. The food was very good and the staff was fast and friendly. The place was clean with a good view also.

The rueben sandwich is the best in the OBX. I love sitting outside watching the marina activity in the summer.
