Great Lunch!

The Full Moon Café is a great eclectic type café with a new brew pub attached. We have visited there a number of times throughout the years for lunch and have always enjoyed our food and friendly service. On this visit I had the shrimp and grits (actually Polenta) which was fantastic at $16 and my... read more

The brewpub tour was fun, unique and definitely recommended! The in-laws went for a late lunch later in the week. The food and service was good, but the price was a little more than what they expected for the food they ordered.

This is a great brewpub with an atmosphere to match. Opposite side of the street from the marina, so missing he waterfront but otherwise has all that a seaside eatery in a historic town ought to. Fish and chips were great, well battered but not soggy. Shrimp sandwich took a hit because the bread was not good and it's not... More

The place was packed to my friend and I sat at the bar and are so glad we did...had a lot of fun chatting with the waitresses and watching their back-and-forths with each other. Food was tasty if basic; the beer was delicious!

It was quite crowded when we visited. The crab bisque soup was excellent, but the salad had brown tinged lettuce in it & mine also contained a human hair. The waitress failed to bring us silverware (we got our own) & slopped part of my soup on the plate underneath. Instead of offering to get another bowl, she simply set... More

The Full Moon Cafe is in downtown Manteo and has good food and great beer. It's a great place to have lunch while visiting the shops and galleries in Manteo.

Implicit disclaimer - made explicit - the rating is area-specific. Perched next to the Full Moon Brewery this here cafe serves mostly neighbor's (sister's?) brews, which are the best among local breweries. Russian Imperial Stout was particularly good. The most surprising thing was the quality of food - uncomplicated, but fresh and well assembled. One of the best crabcakes on... More

We had the crab dip for starters and gobbled it up. The chips for the dip were excellent. Great spot for people-watching on the street.

My boyfriend crab soup that he liked a lot; in fact I liked it too and had a bowl which I also enjoyed. I don't recall what he had for an entree but I had quesadillas which were just ok. The beer was good as was the atmosphere. We also had an awesome waitress!
