They were able to accomodate a vegan, a vegetarian and a vegan that is GF. The food was fantastic and the staff was very knowledgable. We will return when we visit in 2020!

We stopped here for a light lunch. The service was exceptional. The server also acted in the Lost Colony, which we were to late in the year to see. We wish we could have had time to return for dinner another day.

I get very ill if I eat onions so asked my waitress if my fish tacos could be made without them. They do vegan and gluten free so I figured no problem. The waitress said no problem. My tacos came with scallions everywhere. The waitress...More

This is the best restaurant in Manteo with the best view and it's not even close. Food is amazing. Not the normal boring vacation food. Great for every occasion.

Avenue Grille is a seasonal waterfront restaurant in downtown Manteo serving local seafood, all natural proteins, pizza, burgers and more! We are closed for the winter and will reopen in March 2018. Avenue Waterfront Grille is situated to handle large parties and has a kid menu, so there is something for everyone. Our menu has plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options, too. Made from scratch recipes are prepared fresh daily. The fully stocked bar is a great place to relax and view the water. Or join us on the area's largest waterfront patio with beautiful views overlooking the marina and Queen Elizabeth II. Gather with friends and family after a fun day on Roanoke Island enjoying the sights. We are located in the middle of the downtown district and are steps away from a stroll on the docks and great shops, too! We are a seasonal restaurant and will be adding more hours in starting in May. Looking forward to meeting you!
