Description: Avenue Grille is a seasonal waterfront restaurant in downtown Manteo serving local seafood, all natural proteins, pizza, burgers and more! We are closed for the winter and will reopen in March 2018. Avenue Waterfront Grille is situated to handle large parties and has a kid menu, so there is something for everyone. Our menu has plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, too. Made from scratch recipes are prepared fresh daily. The fully stocked bar is a great place to relax and view the water. Or join us on the area's largest waterfront patio with beautiful views overlooking the marina and Queen Elizabeth II. Gather with friends and family after a fun day on Roanoke Island enjoying the sights. We are located in the middle of the downtown district and are steps away from a stroll on the docks and great shops, too! We are a seasonal restaurant and will be adding more hours in starting in May. Looking forward to meeting you!

The restaurant was truly lovely there was a rehearsal dinner going on and it's easy to see why someone would choose that location. The view was great too but most important the food was really good.

My husband and I had our reception here when it was Adrianna's. We loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. We went back in 2013 and learned the restaurant had changed hands. We were a little disappointed because we had loved it so much before. We visited for lunch and enjoyed it just as much as we did the first time. If you visit Manteo, I would highly recommend it!

Excellent lunch meal while on vacation. Probably the best of the trip. The special, buy one grilled pizza/get another 1/2 off. The Farm and Trawler grilled pizza was Brilliant...steamed shrimp with apple wood bacon, minced garlic, spinach rags, herb olive oil, and parmesan/provolone blend. The 1/2 off pizza was "The Original;" Basil pesto, grilled chicken, sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, pickled sweet peppers, and provolone cheese. We finished the lunch with the Fudge Brownie...again BRILLANT!!!

Thank you so much for coming in and taking the time to write a review. Being part owner and being married to the other owner, who also happens to be our Chef, this is very nice to read! We aim to please and are so happy you enjoyed your time at Avenue. The Farm and Trawler is one of my favorites, too! Thanks again!

I went to lunch here with some of my girlfriends over Memorial Day weekend and we thought this was the best restaurant/food we had while in the OBX. The place was clean and modern. It overlooked the water which was gorgeous. The ambiance was very nice and they played Caribbean music in the background which just added to the experience. The food was excellent. We ordered the crab dip (asked for extra croustinis) peel and eat shrimp, crab cake sliders and the fish of the day sandwich. Everything was excellent. The lavendar lemonade was also extremely good. Can't say enough good things about this place! I would definitely recommend going if you're staying in Manteo or even if you're not!

Also pop in across the street to Sisters Boutique if you'd like to get some shopping in. It has adorable items and you'll want to take the whole store home!

We ate here on our last night of a weeks's vacation in Nags Head. First, super easy drive over the bridge which helps avoid the massive crowds and waits at average to below average restaurants on the beach.

Second, the team at the restaurant was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and very accommodating.

We started with the fingerling potato appetizer. Delicious in its simplicity!!!

My husband then had the cracked pepper fish of the day (mahi mahi). It was flavorful, tasty and a perfect complement of food and flavor.

I had the meat lovers pizza with pork belly, pancetta and beef. It was an awesome respite from a week of seafood. The flavors popped, the sauce was subtle but bold at the same time, and the flavors blended together beautifully!

We brought a piece of Key Lime cheesecake home and are currently arguing over last bite!!!

Don't miss out in this fabulous food with a fabulous view!!!!!
