If the line is long don’t worry it goes fast! Food is wonderful. They have a large staff that is very skilled. Prices are very reasonable Nice view. Resturant is cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. Outside seating is dog friendly.

In between the aquarium and Roanoke festival park we stopped here for lunch. In the off-season parking is pretty easy- we found a few spots in the nearby gravel lot. It was a bit too rainy for us to sit on the covered deck but...More

This was our first visit to Poor Richard’s. My husband had the Italian sub and it was awesome. The amount of meat on it was unbelievable and the prices are very reasonable. Would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Right on the water, with inside and outside seating. A great place for lunch with a wide assortment of Boar's Head meats and cheese. I had corn chowder and a blt which was delicious and moderately priced. You won't go wrong by eating here.

This is a casual restaurant on the Manteo Waterfront. I have never eaten breakfast there but their lunch selections are great. They have great chili, soups, salads, and sandwiches. You can sit inside the restaurant or on the back porch for a great water view.

Yes...you will have no issues having your pet with you on the back patio at Poor Richards. Afterwards, you should take a stroll along the docks where it is very pet friendly. :-)
