Excellent beer, good food

We have eaten here a number of times and never had a bad meal. I love the chicken nachos and their Apple walnut salad. One time my friend ordered blackened scallops and the server noticed she did not eat too many. When she said they were a little too over seasoned for her, the server brought her an... read more

This is the first place we visit when we go to Manteo. The food, beer, and atmosphere are second to none. We highly recommend this wonderful cafe!

The Full Moon is a small cafe in the business and shopping district of the Manteo waterfront featuring local craft beer and great food. They have a wonderful selection featuring local seafood and classic sandwiches and other dishes at lunch time. We have never been at the dinner hour. Weather permitting they have a large outdoor seating area where they... More

Very cute, little place. Stopped for lunch with a group of 8. Everyone was happy with their meal. We all had crab cakes or shrimp wrap. Service was very good.

We enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Full Moon Cafe. The staff was friendly and provided great service. The menu had much more variety than a typical pub menu. The food was very well prepared, presented and tasted great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I went to this restaurant as part of a progressive dinner on 3/21/2015, Our entrees were fresh and bountiful and have convinced us to come back again. We were visited by the chef during the meal and had a wonderful time

This is a lovely little cafe and brew pub, decked out with local art. Appropriately, lots of seafood on the menu, burgers the way you want them, and good beers on tap. The chicken wings on special were little, but the cup of crab soup was rich and satisfying. On a nice day there is plenty of seating outside. After... More

Me and my boyfriend decided to try dinner here after finding out it was a brewery also. The food was really good and so were the beers! Me and my BF are avid craft beer drinkers and love trying new breweries. This was one of the first times where we honestly had a very hard time deciding on what beer... More

We had a lovely stay in Manteo and I wanted desperately to fall in love with the Full Moon Cafe & become a frequent visitor during our long visit, however, lunch was a disappointment. Let me preface that the beer was tasty, the face-to-face service quite kind, and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed his CRAB CAKE Sandwich. First, sat down to... More
