LOVE, LOVE this place! Food is really tasty with great, casual atmosphere, and good prices. Order at the counter, dine indoors, on a covered deck, or on picnic tables below deck right in front of the Manteo slips and in-line with the Elizabeth II (docked...More

Been going here for the last 10 years. We love the place as you can sit out near the sound and have a great sandwich for lunch. Brownies are a good after lunch treat as well.

The line was long, but moved quickly. Limited seating, but beautiful location. We loved the pasta salad and grilled pimento cheese.

Line was out the door, but it moved fast. There were 4 adults and 3 kiddos and we were all very impressed. Clam Chowder was some of the best we had ever had. Food was piping hot when it came out and extremely fresh.

We visited Manteo for a long weekend and wanted to get lunch near the water so we stopped at Poor Richard's. The food was very good and the staff was very courteous. I will definitely go back.

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. :-)
