With OBX Ghost Tours, you can learn all about the paranormal activity during a guided walking tour through Downtown Manteo. Guests even get the chance to use a real ghost detector! It’s a scary good time! But you won’t want to be on a ghost hunt on an empty stomach. Here are some of our favorite places in Manteo to grab a bite to eat before embarking on an OBX Ghost Tour…
Hungry Pirate European Cafe $$ // European (Healthy options) - This is definitely a restaurant for those looking for some healthier options! This waterfront cafe menu is full of European-style goodies- from paninis, sandwiches, salads, and even cocktails, they’ll have something for everyone in the family! They also have plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans.
Big Al’s Soda Fountain and Grill $ // Burgers - Famous for their perfectly grilled burgers and delectable shakes and malts, Big Al’s is a wonderful dining option. They also have plenty of other options, including crab cakes, salads, and BBQ ribs, so there’s definitely something on this menu to satisfy your cravings!
TL’s Country Kitchen $$ // Southern - This is the place to be if you are craving some good ‘ole Southern cooking! Fried chicken, Homemade Meatloaf, and Battered Cod- you name it, they have it! There are even some really fun options such as their Cereal Crusted French Toast. Come here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner...or even for every meal!
Carolina BBQ Company $ // BBQ - BBQ lovers beware! You may become addicted to the Carolina BBQ Company. If you like perfectly sliced brisket, juicy pulled pork, and ribs that practically fall off the bone, this is the place for you! This is already a popular place with the locals, and it will soon become a summertime vacation staple for you and your family.
Ortega’z Grill $ // Southwestern - This grill definitely spices things up in Downtown Mateo!

Poor Richard’s Sandwich Shop $ // Deli - Being a Manteo staple since 1984, any local will tell you that you HAVE to go to Poor Richard’s! They serve classic and specialty sandwiches made perfectly with Boar’s Head products. Though, the best part of the restaurant would probably have to be the interior- it feels just like you’re eating inside the cabin of a ship. You won’t want to miss it!
Blue Water Grill & Raw $$ // Seafood - This restaurant likes to keep things FRESH! Fresh fish, fresh produce, and a fresh menu that updates with each season! It’s every seafood lover’s dream, though there are some “turf” options as well. They like to keep things so fresh that they’ll even cook your own catch! All you have to do is clean it before bringing it in. Don’t let your OBX vacation end before trying out Blue Water Grill & Raw!
