“Great Sandwich (reuben) right on water”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

A great deli, with a porch right on the waterfront. The Reuben sandwich and fries were very good, nice big portion and only about $8. This was a great lunch. Recommend for all for lunch.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We had lunch at Poor Richards today - we got pulled pork BBQ sandwiches and they were the best I've had in a long, long time. We had our dogs, so we ate outside. The server brought our meal out to us and we ate at a picnic table on the waterfront. They had no issue with sticking their head out of the door and calling out our number. When I went to pick it up, the server insisted on delivering to our table. As I said the sandwiches tasted great and portions were quite generous. We also ordered onion rings and they were yummy - crispy with jjust the right amount of batter. Service is top notch and the place is always packed - go early! I appreciate how accommodating their staff was - it made for a great afternoon, enjoying the Manteo waterfront. I would definitely recommend trying out this restaurant if you're in the Manteo area.

“the best in manteo!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We have been coming to Manteo for 3 years and Poor Richards has never failed to please. We have had breakfast and lunch/dinner meals; eat in and take out. The food is great, the staff friendly and service is quick. We enjoy the casual atmosphere and the inside/outside dining options. Our favorite place in the Outer Banks!

“The food kinda sucks, but good drinks and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

We ended up getting super drunk there. Super strong drinks! Thanks Glen! There was live music every night. Some of it sucked, but most was good.

It's also a great place to hang out if u r a 7o year old lesbian!

Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.

“Average Food - Loooong Waiting Time!!!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

My family visited this sandwich shop due to some good reviews, but our visit was anything but pleasant! After ordering the slightly expensive sandwiches, we took a seat outside in the back (nice atmosphere). After a 1/2 hour wait we asked when we could expect our food. Was told it would be out shortly. Another 1/2 hour passed when some of us got our food orders. My sister-in-law was told they ran out of pastrami and would she like something else - after an already 1 hour wait!! My sandwich was burned and not tasteful at all. Not a very satisfying experience at all!!
