My wife spotted the sign while we were looking for a place to park. She had a turkey sandwich and I had a reuben. Both were excellent. Great service. Good views fro the outside tables.

Enjoyed a sandwich while visiting around Manteo. Food was great and plentiful. I did notice that people on the outside seating areas lollygagged after they were finished eating, not freeing up seating for people waiting on a seat. Not the managements fault .

The four of us stopped in to grab some beers and some sandwiches prior to jumping on a sale cruise right outside the restaurant. The sandwiches were great. They poured our beers in plastic cups so we could take them on the sale cruise with us and even gave us some ice for our bottle of wine. We would definitely... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch while sightseeing in beautiful Manteo. Crab cake sandwiches were absolutely delicious and home made pasta salad a great side. We dined outside and enjoyed a view of the marina and sound. Would definitely return!

Corn beef and pastrami was excellent as well as grilled chicken breast sandwich. Fresh ingredients and very good sandwiches. Choice of cucumber salad, pasts salad or chips. Great place for a quick sandwich,... More

This is a sandwich shop. Is it good for a sandwich shop.... Yes but does it deserve to be #1. I don't know about that. I have to review on the whole experience. The building is in need of maintenance. The location is ok. But you can't see a lot for the boats. The food is good but its sandwiches.... More
