Thank Goodness for this Late Night Establishment!

On our first trip to the Outer Banks we arrived in Manteo very late in the evening and had missed any local restaurants still serving supper. Poor Richards is just up the block from the Tranquil Inn, where we stayed, and thank goodness they had some late night appetizers on the menu! Chicken... read more

A local favorite for breakfast and lunch (pub food for dinner), PRSS serves rather hefty portions of solid food, cheap, tasty, simply presented, and good. Service is quick; front end staff can be a bit cool, but wait staff are friendly and competent. Decor is 80's and could use an update, but fits the overall experience. Well worth a visit... More

Good biscuits! This place got crowded for breakfast (there arent many options in Manteo) but it definitely gets the job done. The line at the counter to order moves fast and they get it out to you pretty soon thereafter.

My husband had a cheesesteaks sandwich and I had a chicken sandwich deal of the day. I got a fresh fruit cup along with my meal that was so good. Must have been hungry for fresh fruit that day. All fresh cut no canned stuff. Located in a good spot too. Hope if you choose to eat at poor Richards... More

We ate here with our three young kids. Great food! Recommend the Reuben sandwich for sure. Very reasonably priced and good location - eat inside or out and enjoy a great view. We will return next time in Manteo.

Come here all the time for lunch. Their food is always great! I recommend the Ruben! Always friendly staff! I just am not a fan of the chili. If it's a nice day you can sit outside by the water :)

Went there for lunch the hot ham and cheese was the special of the day. I was impressed because I'm not a fan of this type of sandwich but it was so good. I will definitely go again.

We wanted a quick sandwich to take to the beach, so we got a B L T wrap. Service was great as was the food. The location on the waterfront makes for a great place to enjoy the food and scenery.

Great lunch place on the water in Downtown Manteo. Hot and cold sandwiches as well as burgers. Highly recommend the burgers but all the sandwiches our party of 5 had were great. Take your choice of sitting inside or out on the covered deck and look out over the water. The have a bar on the street side that looks... More
