Great food selection.affordable prices. Sandwich shop menu. They offer wraps as well as burgers or just reg bread sandwiches. Chips or fries are available. Highly recommend the tuna wrap. And if chocolate chip cookies are available, better get that too.love eating outside.. Nice view of water..

We had come down from Clayton on a day trip to Jockey's Ridge when we were looking for somewhere to eat lunch. We decided on Poor Richard's because we were hungry and were looking for a simple lunch. By the time we got there (during lunchtime), it was packed but moving pretty well. The sandwiches were excellent (I personally recommend... More

We were in the waterfront area of Manteo looking for a quick lunch when we found Poor Richard's. The variety of sandwiches available was beyond what we expected and everything was well prepared and reasonably priced. A nice stop off for lunch.

Good food and good service make for a great experience. Breakfast and sandwiches are their forte. Definitely not "fast" food but worth the wait.

It has a nice water front view of the different boats. Where you could take it all in. The sandwiches are just OK rather expensive. The staff is quick and short and not very friendly

We love visiting Poor Richard's every time we drive to Manteo. It's one of our favorite spots. The food is always fresh and delicious. My husband loves the Reuben, I am a fan of the chicken salad! But I also love a classic grilled cheese. The back deck is a great spot to sit when the weather is nice...and I... More

Dinner, August, 19, 2016. We were first ones in the door at 5 PM with a storm brewing. Still, we chose to eat out on the porch overlooking the boardwalk, large boats and waterway. It rained (poured) but we were dry. My Reuben lived up to its high reputation cited in earlier reviews. My wife enjoyed a turkey BLT wrap--it... More

I dropped into Poor Richards for a quick lunch. This is a casual, no shoes required sandwich shop. They take your order and you seat yourself. The outdoor patio overlooks the water and has a pleasant view. I got the crab cake sandwich special which was quite good. The service was very good. My order van out quickly and the... More

Good place to pick up sandwiches before taking a boat tour or for relaxing afterwards with a beer. On the Manteo Waterfront.

Thank John K
