Full Moon was Stop #3 out of 6 on a self created trip to several local area Northeastern North Carolina breweries. And out of all of them Full Moon was the #1 TOP brewery spot in my book. Upon walking in the place was super small but the beer DEFIANTLY made up for it as these guys really know what... More

We are from the mountains. Once a year, we make a treck to the OBX and gorge on seafood all week. By Friday, even these landlubbers are tired of fish, and being a butcher's daughter, I'm craving red, raw meat. I rarely eat red meat, so when I do, it better knock my socks off. Full Moon has always delivered.... More

Full Moon Cafe has plenty of outdoor seating. The weather was perfect with a light sweater in the sunshine. We had great service and a varied menu selection, I had hummus, which was very good. Nice wine list and beers. I was saving my alcohol consumption for later, but the bottle of wine being shared at the next table was... More

Nice little cafe/brewery. Enjoyed the beer and atmosphere. Had the blonde, eed and wheat ales. They were all good.

Great little restaurant downtown. Loved the outside seating! Had a few beers with lunch and was impressed with the taste of both the beer and food. Good selections of food and drinks, be aware there is no liquor. Service was good and prompt. Nothing over the top impressive, just a cool spot with good food. Will return.

Awesome little brew pub with a nice selection of crafted beers brewed onsite. The menu is a wide selection of food items for all to choose from. The next time you're in the Outer Banks stop by in Manteo.

Had lunch at Full Moon on the Saturday before the Nags Head Marathon. The area was very busy but worth the effort to find a place to park and short walk to the Cafe. They feature Lost Colony beers, these are very good and they have flights. For lunch I had the Shrimp Roanoke Warp. This wrap featured the shrimp... More

Consistently good food and service, craft beers from next door small brewery. Generous portions for the price, competent seafood and meats, decent vegetarian options. Beer selection is limited but good, decent wine list, no ABC though. Seating inside and out, Waiters are attentive and prompt, even in the off-season. The only place I'd eat in Manteo - more than once... More
