$1.95 for a single french fry? Ha, ha! I can't read menus.

See the on line menu for that french fry silliness of mine. Great sandwich, soup, and salad selections. We had lunch and ate it outside overlooking the water. Very peaceful, and no complaints about the sandwiches and salads we had. A one-time experience; we would go back and do it again. We... read more

Had the privilege of having a few drinks here at the end of January, staff was friendly & locals made us feel welcome. we had some wings which were outstanding that had some live entertainment & we ended up spending 5 hours here to what turned out to be a packed house. Nice location on the Manteo Waterfront.

Went with my family after walking along the boardwalk and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Soups and homemade specials were amazing. Service and quality seemed to be too notch. Recommended for a lunch spot if you are visiting manteo

We were here on a cold, rainy December day--not much choice about where to eat. They serve Boars Head meats, so the sandwiches are good. All were priced well and two of our group had one of the daily specials: mushroom burger and two chili dogs. The french fries are tasty and plentiful. The sandwiches are all about $7-8 and... More

I frequently visit Poor Richard's when visiting Manteo for a quick, economical lunch. You order at the counter, are given a number and your meal is brought to you. They offer several options of sandwiches both cold and grilled, soup and salads. They carry Boar's Head cold cuts -- so the quality is good. Most recenlty I had tuna salad... More

While shopping in Manteo we stopped here for lunch and was not disappointed. Had been here years ago and was glad the sandwiches were still wonderful. Good food, fast service and reasonable prices! We would go back

A nice selection of sandwiches, soups, salads and seafood specials are the hallmark of this eatery with patio seating on the waterfront. Everything is reasonably priced and delicious, including my favorite the grilled cheese and sauerkraut sandwich with a side of chips and pickle. Conveniently located amongst historic Manteo's museums and shops, Poor Richard's does a brisk business for locals... More

Hidden gem amongst some shops in Manteo, NC. We visited on a perfect weather which would have made anything taste better. I got the hot turkey sandwich special with spicy mayo that I loved, but the fries are second to none.
