In town for a few days while the kids are on spring break. Enjoyed a great meal out on the boardwalk. Fries are simply awesome. Steak and cheese was perfect. A must if you're in town.

We've been here a few times and have always enjoyed their food and beverages. Our personal favorite is the Reuben but they have a wide variety of made-to-order sandwiches.

Our first night on Roanoke Island, staying in Manteo, N.C. Not knowing our way around Manteo we picked up a brochure in the lobby of the hotel and started looking around for a place to grab a bite for dinner. We decided to give Poor Richards a try. Located on the waterfront of Manteo, N.C., we punched the location into... More

Had occasion to eat at Poor Richard's for lunch rwice in the same week. Tried different menu items each time. SO my review actually covers 5 items. Each sandwich was terrific and the sides, especially the cole slaw, were excellent. Looking forward to my next trip to Manteo

I stopped in for a quick lunch and tried the Sailor. It is a grilled knockwurst and pastrami with swiss cheese served on rye bread. Add mayo, spicy mustard and pepper relish, the sailor is a delicious mess! Be sure to get plenty of napkins. Poor Richards does offer a harbor view from its dining area. The only negative I... More

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
