We had lunch here and really enjoyed it. The kids had hot dogs, I had a chefs salad and my husband had a Rueben. Great food and great service. Refills on all drinks.

The salad is always so fresh and I never eat it all. Every time I order from there it is always delicious!

I accidentally ordered a juice box for one of my daughters. The super nice lady making sandwiches saw her distress and came to the rescue with a fountain drink cup. Made a difference for a “hangry” family. Thank you again!!! Food was excellent as well.

Had lunch here while visiting Manteo, I had the BLT salad which was quite good. Hubby had the bbq sandwich and said it was ok. It’s clean, friendly service, and we’d eat here again.

We came upon the Hungry Pelican as we were ambling around downtown Manteo. The turkey Ruebens were stuffed well and served on grilled marble rye. Staff were friendly and efficient.

Four of us ate, four different meals (taco salad, chipotle chicken, nutty chicken, and turkey club) and they were all awesome. Nice venue, nice location, parking was easy to find but it was off season. Definitely recommend this place for a quick, satisfying sandwich.
