My husband suggested calling in our order to Poor Richard’s to save a little time. Brilliant!! He walked in passed about 15 guest in line and within 5 min. walked out with our picnic fixings. Menu reads well. We decided on Philly Cheese Steak sandwich’s....Sandwiches were cooked perfectly. Onion rings would probably be better if we had enjoyed them inside. Oh, almost forgot... soups were delicious. Took our goodies a few blocks away to a lovely park and enjoyed our picnic goodies from Poor Richard’s Sandwich shop. We highly recommend.More

We were unprepared for the quality and size of our sandwiches! The sandwiches are more like two meals in one! Come with a large appetite and you will not be disappointed. We went over the Easter weekend and had a delightful lunch in Maneo, right...on the water with plenty of boats and photo-ops. The vast selection at Poor Richards made a choice very difficult, but pleasurable. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.More

Very nice place. Use the wall menu to make your choice and then order at the counter. I had both the turkey reuben and the corned beef reuben. Both were excellent. Also tasted the fries - extra crispy=nice. Potato salad could use something more than...just potatoes and a cream sauce [maybe some celery or bits of bell pepper?]. You can eat outside by the boats.More

When my girlfriend and I visit OBX, we frequently venture over to Manteo to grab a sandwich at Poor Richard's. The crew is very friendly, the service is fast, and the food is fantastic!! No matter what we get, we're thrilled with our selections! Yummy...food, good prices, and a great staff - that's the trifecta!More

Stopped for lunch and shared a “Heart Attack” wrap with baked beans and potato chips—yum! It was a perfect serving for 2. They offer beer on tap and fountain drinks. We sat outside on the picnic tables next to the building and watched boat traffic...in the harbor and birds doing acrobatics above.More

cozy sandwich shop on the waterfront with unique sandwich selections. Located downtown Manteo. I had the Cali wrap with grilled chicken and fresh avocado.

On vacation we ate here twice in one week. This time we got take out to go watch the sun set. The food was not as good as when we dined in. For some reason all of our sandwiches were on wraps.

Good service, good food, good prices. Even though it was cold we sat outside on their patio to avoid COVID germs. They bought our food out to us and it was a nice spot to sit at with a lovely view of the water.

It’s was a rainy day and we changed plans and stopped into Poor Richards for a late lunch...good decision. The BEST Reuben sandwich and onion rings with a yummy crisp dill pickle! Great service and super clean.

Every time we eat at Poor Richard's I am amazed that they can keep it all together what with the traffic. The place is busy but the wait it not that long. Our sandwiches were of excellent quality and the service was good. We have...had a wide variety of food and nothing disappointed.More

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. :-)
