We love OBX. Whenever we come for a visit, we plan lunch at PRSS. It is well run and professionally staffed. The meals are tasty and reasonably priced.

We walked in on a Wednesday night, unaware it was trivia night. But we were welcomed and we joined the fun. The food is surprisingly good considering it's a bar. During the day it's more of a sandwich shop and they stay very busy at...the counter, but at night the front bar is open. A fun casual place to hang out and eat a decent meal.More

This will be our 3rd visit, yearly vacation, and I wish we could go more often. It is not a large dining spot but the food is amazing, the service is fast and courteous and prices are low for the amount of food given. Plus...I think we found our new favorite potato chip in Utz rippled chips. Really REALLY GOOD!!More

We placed a to go order and waiting for it since they weren’t busy around lunchtime on a Saturday. They were out of a bunch of stuff on the menu. It was about $45. When we got home, half the food was missing and the...chili was cold. Would not recommend, which is disappointing given the great reviews we had seen.More

This is a very busy lunch spot with absolutely delicious food. The prices are reasonable for what you get. Great side choices-I suggest the cucumber salad! Sit outside and you have a great view of the water.

Good pub grub with some interesting spins with a British influence. Wide selection of local beers, friendly staff and bartender. Outside patio seating or inside with a few TV’s.

This is a lunch review so let's start from the beginning ... You need to wait in line ... The menu is on the wall ... Order at the register ... Make sure your party is ready ... Ordered ... Great ... Now the review...... Fan-tas-tic!!! Everything we order was almost like the first time we had it ... Mine actually was ... The ship ... Pastrami, knock, Swiss, pepper relish, hot mustard garlic mayo ... Toasted marble rye ... Delicious ... Dinner could be different but that's how lunch wentMore

We visited during Manteo’s Fourth of July celebration. The place was packed full of people, but let me tell ya, I have never been more impressed with a restaurant work crew as I was of this one. The women behind the counter, in the kitchen,...running orders all over the place were absolutely remarkable! They worked hard to make every single order correct and I never heard them say one cross word. The food was absolutely remarkable! We will definitely return and make Poor Richard’s one of our yearly stops!!!More

We stopped for lunch while we were in Manteo. The portion sizes were great and the food was very good. The seating was limited and we ended up sitting in the closed bar area. I had a salad with grilled chicken that was very good,...but very large.More

Super location in town with both inside and outdoor seating. The back deck overlooks the waterfront- very nice. They carried Boars Head deli products and the sandwiches were great. Only complaint would be their hours are limited. We tried to eat there late afternoon and...they closed at 3.More

We found this place while searching for a lunch spot on a family vacation with gluten free options for our picky celiac daughter. They had excellent options and much care was taken to prevent cross contamination. They even had a dedicated gluten free toaster. We...loved it so much we had lunch there the next day as well! Will definitely dine here again when in the area.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. :-)
