The atmosphere, the water view and connected to the Inn. This is a must for a special occasion. Fine cuisine.

We arrived after 7:00pm and didn't know what to expect especially late in the season. The server was friendly, the food was outstanding and the atmosphere relaxing!

We had dinner there last weekend and were treated so well, they have the freshest local catch and ingredients. The staff is great and consistent, we've been here about 4 times this year. It's hands down the best place in Manteo.

The food was very good, with a nice selection of seafood. We had a table right by the large windows overlooking the Manteo waterfront.

We are here on a vacation and went here for dinner last night. Food was good and service was also good. The dressing for the Caesar salad was good but they needed to put a little more on the lettuce. The salad was a bit dry. I had the local tuna on a bed of fried rice. It was excellent.... More

I am an Outer Banks local so I know most of the restaurants. This is one of the best for quality of food. It also has a very nice ambience, is not noisy and has a lovely waterfront view - especially if you snagged a table by the window. Service was great. My out of town guests were very impressed...

As locals, we often stop by 1587's bar just to have a night cap after dinner. Great bar with lots of ambiance and a bartender who can make some pretty great drinks. If you're looking for a quiet spot - this is a great place. Dinner is great too! We often head to this restaurant for special occasions!

The food was good, but a bit overpriced. I had a salad and the lamb and split the cobbler with my husband. He was more satisfied with his meal (porkchops). The service was also only eh. Server was nice, but left us alone for long stretches. The hostess was actually more attentive. View was nice though, and the cobbler was... More

We always enjoy 1587 and the little town of Manteo, when ever we are in town we try to make this one of our spots. The food is always fresh and the menu is interesting and always changing. Nice view of the water too!

Virginia Dare, born 1587, was the first child born in the British Colonies in the New World. She was named after the Virginia Colony. Many places in North Carolina have been named in her honor. Assuming it was also named in honor of Virginia Dare is 1587 Restaurant, located right inside The Tranquil House Inn. This quaint, yet elegant, eatery... More
