A long time local hang out where the fish is fresh and the service friendly. The daily specials are great! Recent visits had broiled flounder, crab cakes, fried flounder, and mullet.Enjoyed them all. Nice variety of sides too, beans and rice, delish cole slaw, applesauce, fries etc. We always look forward to at least one stop each trip.if soft shelled... More

I've loved this place for over 30 years. So glad it has stayed the same! Food is fresh, service is great. Guess that is why this place has been around forever!!!

Call it tradition or whatever you want but a stop at Sam and Omie's has been a must for us ever since we started coming to the OBX about 20 years ago... Food is consistently good, especially breakfast! Always great service. We even drive up from Rodanthe now that we stay on HI each summer...wouldn't think of not eating here!!!

We got seated pretty quick. When we went to order I asked for a salad with blue cheese and I was told they were out of blue cheese. My friend ordered ribeye steak and he was told they were out of ribeye steak. I ordered the flounder. The fillets were very small, They still had skin on the bottom. And... More

Sam & Omie's is located near the Jennette's Pier in Nags Head on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Last time we were there, we stopped at the restaurant twice, once for lunch and once for breakfast. If we had been there longer, we would have gone back again. Sam & Omie's has so much down-home charm. If you're looking... More

One of the last old Outer Banks restaurants with a lot of local color, flavor and great food. Nothing fancy, just plain old good food.

After a day’s fishing, the Friendly staff serve some Fantastic food, washed down with some local cold beers. I couldn’t recommend this place enough!

We visit Sam and Omie's several times a year and have always enjoyed the terrific, friendly service and great food, but...........We stopped in on Saturday around 4:30 after leaving the Seafood Festival. We were (as always) greeted by a friendly hostess and took our seats at the bar. The place was not overly busy. There is always a smiling face... More

A relaxed atmosphere, some good fish tales and friendly service describe this Nags Head institution. In years past, we stood in line for great breakfasts (they still serve them), but this time, we tried lunch. I had a delicious seafood salad with healthy and fresh edible garnish - sprouts, lettuce, cucumbers and perfectly ripe tomato. Fellow diners enjoyed their also-yummy-looking... More
