Wow, could not wait to return to this great little sandwich shop. Great prices and great food. Love the tuna melt. Never go here without getting yummy onion rings. Fries are great too. If the outside seating is available, I suggest it, nice breeze blows...More

I went to Poor Richard's the other night for dinner. We were hoping to eat on the waterfront side, but had forgotten that part of the restaurant shuts down at 3pm. So, we all ended up in the bar - 3 adults and 2 children....More

Have always gone to Poor Richards since I started visiting Manteo in 2005. It is still just as good and fresh as it was back then. A must for a good sandwich at lunch in downtown Manteo! Fast service too! Friendly staff as well.

Stopped in after the Roanoke history tour and had a wonderful lunch. Cuban sandwich and chicken salad wrap. The fries were great and the pickled cucumber salad was delicious. Terrific lunch spot overlooking the harbor and a good value.

Yes...you will have no issues having your pet with you on the back patio at Poor Richards. Afterwards, you should take a stroll along the docks where it is very pet friendly. :-)
