A Casual Outer Banks Waterfront Seafood Restaurant

If you’re looking for an Outer Banks seafood restaurant with a casual, family-friendly vibe and an amazing water view from every seat, join us at Avenue Waterfront Grill in downtown Manteo. Overlooking Shallowbag Bay and the Manteo harbor, our Outer Banks waterfront restaurant offers finely crafted, chef-prepared dishes for seafood lovers, meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans and gluten-free eaters alike in a laid-back, friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We buy only local seafood for menu items like our popular Tuna Sushi Style, Fish Tacos and Bayou Shrimp and Grits, and selections of pizza, burgers, steaks, chicken, slow-smoked brisket, salad and pasta ensure that everyone in your party can find something they love. We serve all-natural proteins and fresh produce and make everything from scratch, including our sauces, dressings, pizza crust and even the Italian sausage.  Owners Chef Thomas Williamson and Maria Williamson and our friendly staff welcome you to our Outer Banks waterfront restaurant with friendly smiles, delicious food and the best views on the Outer Banks. Come see us on the Manteo waterfront for lunch and dinner.
