This restaurant was nice to visit on the Manteo Waterfront prior to our ghost tour, which did not begin until 8 p.m. Many shops in Manteo, though not all, close around 5 p.m. so it was nice to have a place to go and hang...More

3 Qs: We must strictly avoid peanuts and hazelnuts. How comfortable are you with accommodating guests with peanut and tree nut allergies? What type of oil do you use in frying? Do you have a children's menu? Many thanks.

Avenue Grille is a waterfront restaurant in downtown Manteo serving local seafood, all natural proteins, pizza, burgers and more! 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!
