This is a great local bar, open year round with consistent food service, friendly staff, and entertainment. Awesome deli sandwiches! Vegetarian options including an award winning chili. Salads, wings, mozerall sticks, and more. Love the trivia nights on Wednesdays and live music on weekends! A favorite little place on Roanoke Island!

Good breakfast and lunch spot in the heart of quaint downtown Manteo. Love the sweet potato biscuits. Sit on back deck overlooking the Roanoke Sound.

Our hotel manager recommend Poor Richard's to us and I am glad we checked it out. The food was great! The Reuben was one of the best I ever had. Portions sizes were good and prices were decent. The dining area is small but there is an outdoor area weather permitting. There is also a bar area but it was... More

You will be glad you ate your lunch here. I had the Reuben sandwich with fries. We had 8 in our party and everyone ordered a different plate. Every bit of it was fantastic. The only downside is the lack of seating. The line is long (for good reason) but the seating is almost impossible to find even for a... More

It is off season, so their hours weren't consistent. Went for dinner. Good little sandwich shop and bar area. Reasonably priced. Servers didn't have much personality. Reubens, tuna sandwich, Sailor and a grilled cheese with soup. All hit the spot.

We've been coming to the outer banks for over 7 years. I have passed by this shop numerous times and had even seen ads with entertainment offered. We went on December 26, mainly because boxing day closes most eateries and it was open. So glad we did. The impressions you'll get by walking by is a small establishment and you'll... More

Not a lot of options the day after christmas in the late evening. Glad to stumble upon this gem. Sandwiches were really good (reuben and Italian) and the prices were reasonable. Small joint with a bar but it wasn't busy when we came in. Food came out quickly. A great late night snack before heading to our final destination of... More

It was December so not too crowded. nice view on the patio. There is a bar up front also where i took my first meal there. Second was in back in the resturant (actually didn't notice it was there at first). Reuben was fantastic. Crab sandwich was a 3. probably wouldn't get that again, but all else was fantastic! Nice...

The food was fine; the staff was fine. The charge for a cup for water was inexcusable. I spent 16.19 for 1 turkey salad plate and lemonade for my spouse and a chicken salad sandwich for me. I asked for a cup for water because I can't drink carbonated beverages, caffeine, or citrus. They charged me 25 cents for the... More

Very good food, limited space for seating though. If you are lucky to get a table outside the back porch, very lovely views! Onion rings very good, sandwiches are stuffed! Excellent pricing and good for families.

Thank Stacy D
