Full Flavor at Full Moon!

Imagine that you are a craft beer lover, and you are coming to the OBX for the first time. You pull up at your rental after a nine hour drive, and feel the need to stretch your legs a bit.

This little brewery and cafe is charming and friendly. Not to mention the food is delicious but the beer is the star of the show. We encountered the friendliest staff who's vast beer knowledge and hospitality made us feel as if we were locals. We ate at the cafe on the first visit, enjoying crab dip and stouts. We had... More

My husband, son and I stopped in Full Moon Cafe for a light snack and drink after wandering around the waterfront. I was overall very impressed with the restaurant. Although a small place with a few tables, it was not noisy, was comfortable and not too cramped. The service was very good. We only ordered appetizers this visit so we... More

I've dined here twice. The first time I sat in the dining room and the second time we tried the outdoor seating. If the weather is decent, definitely do the outdoor seating. The service staff is cool and friendly. The food is pretty good. The fish and chips are superb. The toasted pita and hummus appetizer is outstanding. The chips... More

We were in town for the Outer Banks Half Marathon and this restaurant / brewpub is at the finish line. We visited the day after the race for a quick lunch. The food was really good, and there were lots of vegetarian options. The beer flights were great as well. Sit outside if it's not too cold / windy for... More

Great beers, nice outdoor seating, service was good and friendly. Abundant portions: We had steak quesadilla and nachos. We each had a flight of four beer samples. They were all very enjoyable. Our only negative comment is their uninspired salsa which seemed like a can of diced tomatoes with a splash of tabasco sauce. Great beers.

Their beers were good. I had steak quesadillas and they were very good. My husbands ribeye and shrimp was also very good. The rice was not so good! Another friends filet was tough. And the chicken parmesan was good, however it did not come with pasta which seemed odd..it was served with rice. The quiche was also good. So some... More

If you love seafood, craft beer and the Outer Banks, this will be a place to stop. In the historic Village of Manteo is a great little micro brewery where you can do a tasting or just have a great lunch. We stumbled upon it while site seeing and loved the Shrimp Wrap, the soups and salads. Reasonably priced, out... More

We were told that the Cafe was great for lunch, but otherwise not so hot. They are a microbrewery and my husband loved their brews (I don't drink beer, so I can't add much). We stopped for appetizers and a drink.....have the crab dip!!! They serve it with this amazing deep fried pita bread. The dip was great, but I... More
