This is a casual restaurant on the Manteo Waterfront. I have never eaten breakfast there but their lunch selections are great. They have great chili, soups, salads, and sandwiches. You can sit inside the restaurant or on the back porch for a great water view.

We enjoyed our sandwiches outside on a lovely day. We looked at the water and the reproduction ship from the Lost Colony. My Philly sandwich was loaded. My husband enjoyed a crab sandwich.

The food wasn't great but wasn't bad either. We won't return, stopped in on desperation. Little meat on the sandwich and prices didn't match what was listed online, they were more.

We stopped in for lunch, but because it was about 2:00, my wife and I decided to share a sandwich. The line to order was long, but getting the food was even longer. It took nearly 30 minutes to get a sandwich. I know food...More

We enjoyed our lunch here after the pirate adventure cruise. It was very crowded but the wait was not long at all. All the sandwiches were devious and reasonably priced.

1st night in town and we were looking for light meal at the end of long day. Poor Richards was just the place. Small pub that had live local music and good sandwiches. I had nc BBQ, other shrilled cheese hot dog and burger. All...More

Great hearty breakfast with a great view of the harbor in Manteo. Hard to beat for breakfast on a Saturday morning

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. :-)
