Two of our group ate here for breakfast, and two others for lunch. With both meals one person got food that was acceptable and the other person something they would not eat. Would not go back..

Great deli sandwiches, Reuben's are soooo good. Can be crowded at lunch time, so go early or after 1:00. Walkup ordering and they bring to your table. Great views of Festival park and boats at marina. Can eat outside if you want too.

This little gem is a great place to eat. They offer normal fare as well as some very creative sandwiches and meals. The BBQ sandwich was so big and thick, I had to eat half of the meat with a fork, only then could I get my mouth around this huge sandwich. The sauce on the side was something of... More

Stopped in for lunch before a softball tournament. 32.00 for a family of 4 (2 drinks, 3 sandwich baskets, and hot dog basket) was pretty average for the area. Nice view from the deck, great local seaside atmosphere, friendly staff, and good sandwich selection.

We were walking around the beautiful Manteo waterfront shopping, and taking in all kinds of NC Outer Banks history and trying to connect with Andy Griffith's adopted hometown (a moment of silence for Andy Griffith.................RIP Andy) and I'd pre-decided to eat here based on TA reviews. It didn't disappoint either. The only things I'd noted was the Crabcake Sandwich was... More

My wife and I stopped here within minutes of arriving on Roanoke Island. The Rockfish sandwich I had was amazing, and my wife's lump crab cake sandwich was even better! Nothing fancy about the venue, but it was perfectly acceptable and the food more than made up for any shortcomings on that aspect.

The salads are to die for and their soup selection is excellent. I'm never disappointed when I eat here. It's one of my lunchtime favorites. And an added bonus would be excellent customer service I received every time I'm here.

Popped in around dinner time and after a few drinks ordered sandwiches. The Italian sub was probably one of the best we've had in a long time. The prime rib french dip was also top notch. Service was a bit slow due to a solo bartender with a pretty good crowd to deal with. Went back the next night for... More
