The food was okay. My wife ordered the Caesar salad and the dressing was very watery. The salsa is pretty hot, and chips and salsa are the standard side with everything, so if you don't like hot and spicy substitute the fries. The fries are waffle fries but with seasoning that makes them like Arby's curly fries. I got the... More

It was freezing inside, as other reviewers have noted. It took an extremely long time to get our check; someone in our party was ill and needed medication and checks took ten plus minutes to receive. Food was decent; I had the black and bleu burger with an up charge for fries. I think this could be a gluten free... More

Lunch tradition several times a year when we visit the area. Had a delicious crab soup. Also had crab and spinach quiche with a side salad. The quiche was a bit heavy but that may have been because I had just had the rich soup. This cafe is a delight in a very special little town.

I soo wanted to like the Full Moon. It's located in a very quaint neighborhood in Manteo, just a block or two from the waterfront. Nice outdoor patio also. We got there and were told to sit whereever we wanted - picked one of the only clean outdoor tables. We waited for several minuted before a disenchanted looking waitress came... More

They allow you to eat outside with your dog so that is where we went yesterday. It was hot, maybe 82 outside so the cool indoors would have been our choice if not for Fido being with us. I had to go find the hostess to see if we could get the table some folks just left outside. She said... More

Very nice place. A little expensive but food was very good. Crab Bisque was awsome. Our waitress was the bomb.

Lovely cafe in charming village. Very good food. Homemade dog biscuit and water for dog. I don't drink beer, but they do have their own brewery.

The food was good, but it was too cold in the restaurant. I don't understand why restaurant owners/managers don't understand that air conditioning is supposed to make the atmosphere comfortable not like Alaska in winter. We did not return to that restaurant while we were in Manteo

Service was excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was all very good (not one complaint out of six people). I got the shrimp and crab enchilada. There was a lot of shrimp and crab in it and the flavors worked well together. My friend got a burger and whatever bun they used looked awesome. He said it... More
