In every great vacation spot there are one or two special places – places you discover and claim as your own – slightly off the beaten path and away from the crowds and the frenzy – places where magical memories are made. 1587 Restaurant is just such a place.

The lovely 1587 Restaurant is located right inside of The Tranquil House Inn in beautiful historic downtown Manteo. Dine in an atmosphere that is both elegant and relaxed as you gaze through the large windows that frame a view of quaint Shallowbag Bay and a moonrise that is truly spectacular! Every seat in our warm and inviting dining room commands breathtaking waterfront panoramas. Our copper top bar is also the perfect stop for wines, a wide selection of beers and cocktail beverages plus appetizers or small plate menu items.

Travel writers and food critics from around the country say dining at 1587 Restaurant is a “must do.” The writers from Southern Living Magazine said simply, “Remarkably creative cuisine,” and the producers of Food Network’s “Best Of” featured 1587’s creations as the ultimate in Outer Banks dining.

Those who visit us, do so again and again. Join them today!
