Had a great meal here. The wait staff was attentive, the food excellent, the wine list adequate, the atmosphere nice. Obviously, this is the best place in Manteo to go for an upscale dinner if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the tourist trade during the season. If business takes me... read more

My husband and I celebrated our 3rd year anniversary at 1587. The food was good but, I was hoping for something special for our anniversary. Although the staff was pleasant and helpful, it felt like any other dinner. Nothing special and very underwhelming. I was disappointed. I would recommend the restraunt based on food but, not a special occasion restraunt.

Located in the Tranquil Inn, where we stayed, decided to have dinner here one night, as recommended by a friend. Wonderful! Go early, reserve a table near the windows overlooking the water; nice atmosphere. Scallop appetizer was enough for an entree, tuna was excellent as was the beef tenderloin. We all enjoyed the "Lost Colony" martini. Creme Brulee was delicious,... More

Get 20% off by showing evidence that you have "Lost Colony" tickets for that night. Book your dinner reservation for before 6PM. Makes dining here an even better value! The waitstaff is attentive and friendly, and the food is good. There is a nice atmosphere inside the restaurant - not a noisy bar type scene like so many other restaurants... More

I hadn't been here in a long time but went with a group of friends on a recent trip back to North Carolina. The food was excellent -- fresh tuna -- and one of the special martinis was great. We all enjoyed it. Would recommend. Much better than going to a touristy restaurant in the Nags Head area.

The restaurant, food and service was excellent. It is pricey but well worth the price. Great for special occasions. Will definitely return.

The historic 1587 Restaurant is a must for fellow foodies or romantics. The atmosphere is quite compared to the larger volume restaurants on the Outer Banks. The view is stunning. The service was excellent! I had the Snowy Grouper special, my husband had the Mahi-Mahi. Both plates were absolutely delicious! I expected to pay more, but to me the combination... More

I would think this is the best (fine) dining option in Manteo, if not the wider area. It is a very smart and popular restaurant in the Tranquil House Inn with expanses of glazing over looking part of the marina/harbour area. We had a first class dinner, my shrimp and pesto risotto starter was delicious. We both had the mahi-mahi... More

A perfect quiet dinner for 4. An easy walk from the Cameron House B&B. Service was perfect with good suggestions. We all had a different entre and great presentation. The best restaurant in Manteo.
