Family enjoyed this sandwich shop. Burger, Rueben, BLT ordered. Food was great. Service was great. Seating by docks was fantastic. A fun place to grab lunch when visiting Manteo.

Poor Richard's has great sandwiches and their fries are amazing as well! We were pleasantly surprised! The steak hoagie was great and you can make any sandwich into a wrap- which I liked a lot!! We sat inside but there is outside seating by the water as well! Great place!!

We were told several restaurants in Manteo would accommodate us with outdoor seating for our dog. Due to a combination of thunderstorms and the town closing up at 8pm, we were stuck without a place to eat!

We stopped here for a quick lunch before taking our boat out for the day. It's conveniently located close to the dock, water sports and shopping. The sandwiches were good.

Just had their crab cake sandwich for lunch. Absolutely Delicious! Decent prices and pretty chill. Good place to sit out on the back porch and have a drink.

This was a nice, quick place to eat after kayaking. The food was fresh and tasted really good. Our view outside was obstructed by an umbrella for the most part.

This is our lunch stop when in Manteo. The food is fresh and the service is great. We recently met new friends who invited us to share their table. The food is simple fare and always with generous portions.

Great menu, and delicious food. Good value too. Only complaint was that the server spoke so quickly we poor English visitors - not well versed with US sandwich ordering etiquette - weren't always sure what we were ordering 😄

A convenient lunch after Festival Park. No one loved it. No one hated it. Nice view and decent selection. A bit overpriced.
