Friends took us here and it met the high praises they had voiced. We sat outside and had a wonderful meal and good beer. I had a very tasty burger and it as almost more than I could eat. We enjoyed the setting and the food.

Beautiful September day on their patio, enjoying the blonde craft beer and a cup of delicious seafood bisque. Followed by their special burger of the day, a Caribbean spin with pineapple and guacamole. Very attentive service.

This restaurant was very close to the Inn we were staying at, so it was very convenient. My wife and I thought the service was great, but the food I am sorry to say is just average.

I lived in downtown Manteo and this was one of my favorites. It still was many nights, but you can catch an off night now and again. It would make me mad when I had take out and they would forget something. I would still recommend it though.

We enjoyed a lunch here back in June. We returned for dinner yesterday. Over priced at dinner. I ordered the shrimp plate that was more waffle fries than shrimp. No "presentation"; it just seemed to be dumped on a plate. We have to take Full Moon off our list.

We stopped here for lunch and had the seafood burrito and a couple of brews. The food was excellent and the beverages were enjoyable as well. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. The only thing we did not like was that for some reason the staff felt they needed to run the vacuum while we were trying to... More

Chicken tenders are great. My 11 year old loved them. Waitress was great. Manteo is great. Cafe is charming. Husband's Greek salad looked great.

My wife and I returned to the Outer Banks for the third year in a row, and went to the Full Moon again. The food and beer were excellent, just like last year, and the staff was a pleasure to interact with. Paul Charon is the owner and he is incredibly welcoming and so affable. We felt like we knew...
