We love the Outer Banks and try to get to Manteo whenever we are down. We have been to Full Moon Cafe a few times and have always had a great experience. The soft pretzel with crab is a must have!

Easily one of the best oyster po boy sandwiches I've had in NC. Bun is fresh and made for this sandwich. Great service, and enjoyed some of their craft beer while we were there. Will come back just for the sandwich if I have too!!
