There is an interesting division of space at this place. There is a small separate bar area that seats about 12-15 where the brewing equipment is and then the main dining area. The staff were friendly but didn’t seem very knowledgeable about the beer. We got two appetizers to share (crab dip and calamari) and weren’t terribly impressed with either. The beer was rather mediocre across the board and it seems like the brewer is trying to use a limited list of ingredients for all the brews (a lot of taste cross over). Given the small brewing space, it seems like they are trying to make the most of it. The prices were a bit of shock ($7.50 for snifter of the higher ABV stuff). I guess you can get away with it since it’s one of the only breweries in the Outer Banks. They did have some guest taps which was nice. A much better bet for the wallet, food, and beer quality is the Outer Banks Brewing Station. It might be worth stopping by if you are in Manteo but it’s not worth a trip to go just for the beer.

Small indoor space, bar is cramped. Nice outside eating area if the weather cooperates. Food was pretty average, as was the beer....Nothing horrible, just nothing special. Felt everything was pretty average, like they know they have you here on Manteo & there are limited places to go....so enough folks end up here for them to get by. I think this place could be so much more if they put forth more effort, need to start by making better beer! I know it’s hard for them to get enough good help here....but I found other places on Manteo which were so much nicer & were making things happen. I tried coming back here a second time a year after my first visit thinking maybe I was a little hard on them, but I ended up walking out w/o eating after sampling a couple very average beers.

Nice place but it seemed thay tried to put as many tables as possible. Some of the staff was less than happy or caring. Our server was polite but he screwd up our every single order. Pricess reasonable. Beer still needs some work.
