Local Hangout!

Local fish and seafood is great. Wonderful sandwiches and everyone raved on the crab cakes. Here's where the fisherman come to brag and commiserate. Great for breakfast and lunch, and an easy dinner. Go for the specials over the menu.

My family and I visited this establishment this past Memorial Day weekend. As we were walking up to the restaurant there were 4 men clearly intoxicated cussing loudly at the front door. Mind you it was only 5pm. We were sat a booth style table there were two waitresses standing their looking at their phones and sharing the local gossip.... More

Our first time at Sam & Omies and it was as good as advertised. Omlet was fantastic and our server was very friendly and went out of her way to take care of us.

This is a great little restaurant in a typical Nags Head looking House. The food is good but there is usually always a wait to get in so go early. They have a great breakfast, lunch, and dinner and the food is always fresh. Its a great place to go with family and friends.

Breakfast at Sam & Omie's is a family tradition for us when in Nags Head. We love the homey feel, and the fact that it's full of locals. The (mostly) women who work there are delightful. The fish cakes are delicious. It's just a good old beachy joint with a friendly vibe. If you want fancy or fussy, go somewhere... More

Decided to stop in on a Saturday night. A busy place but we had a short wait, an attentive server and VERY good food. We had the whale of a seafood platter. Plenty of food and broiled perfectly. I also had the Hatteras chowder.

We liked the friendliness of the waitresses, the prices, and the taste of the food. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we came back on a second day and ordered different meals but with all the same good service, food and prices.

A local favorite for more than half a century, you can't go wrong with either menu choice or people watching at this quintessential OBX eatery. Better-than-average beach food and the friendliest all-female waitstaff on the east coast. Local atmosphere at its best. Unfortunately, the hostess on duty this particular evening was devoid of any pleasant attributes and was unable to... More

It doesn't matter what you order here, breakfast, lunch or dinner, this is the best in town. But if you want breakfast, get there by 10 a.m. Parking lots on both sides of the building, and they're both needed. Full bar. Great place and friendly.

Never stopped in before despite all our trips to the Banks. Had breakfast there one day and were not disappointed. Our server was wonderful, food was excellent. Will be back next time for sure!
