Lost Colony Brewery and Café in Manteo, Outer Banks [formerly The Full Moon]
Full Moon Cafe has been a favorite dining destination on the Outer Banks since 1995. In 2011 we became The Full Moon Café and Brewery, your favorite brew pub. In 2013 we became the fastest growing locally crafted beer on the Outer Banks. By 2014 the beer we distributed to other restaurants became known as Lost Colony beer. Confusing? Was to us and to a lot of our loyal customers (even the sober ones). The search for The Lost Colony of Roanoke Island took on a new meaning as thousands of thirsty travelers with charts, treasure maps and smart phones in hand looked for the brewery.
We even asked ourselves: ”Who are we? Where are we”?
Well, we are The Full Moon Café. The one the NY Daily news called “brilliant”. The one the Boston Globe called “friendly, affordable and delicious”. The café the Philadelphia Enquirer, Washington Post and Atlanta Journal loved.
We are the Full Moon Brewery, winner of 8 World Beer Championship Medals. The brewery world renowned beer expert Charlie Papazion said had a Porter “as good as he has ever tasted”!
We are The Lost Colony Brewery, with beers in over 50 locations on the Outer Banks from Corolla to Orcracoke.
We are the home town restaurant where first dates, prom dates, wedding proposals, family gatherings, showers and birthdays have taken place for 22 years.
And now we are the Lost Colony Brewery and Café.
Lost Colony Brewery and Café: SAME GREAT BREW, SAME GREAT CHEW, SAME GREAT LOCATION, GREAT NEW NAME!
The Lost Colony Brewery and Cafe is located on a busy corner in the heart of downtown Manteo giving the restaurant a lively, happening feel.

The Town of Manteo wraps around Shallowbag Bay on the eastern side of Roanoke Island, part of North Carolina's Outer Banks. Named the seat of government for Dare County in 1870, this waterfront community incorporated in 1899.
In those early days, every store lining the waterfront had two doors - one for those coming by boat, and the other for those coming from the courthouse or one of the inns on Water Street.
Today, county business still brings people to town, as well as many reminders of the island's history, including the representative 16th century ship at Roanoke Island Festival Park, or the George Washington Creef Boathouse and Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse, part of the North Carolina Maritime Museum. Each summer, the town welcomes singers, dancers, and actors back to Waterside Theatre, where they perform the nation's oldest outdoor symphonic drama, The Lost Colony.
Weather is always a topic on an island, and in Manteo, the day's weather report takes the form of signal flags flying from a restored US Weather Bureau tower.
