Got to try it atleast once!!!

I wanted to eat here because I had heard so much about it. It was a good restaurant and the food was OK. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. This is one of those historical places that when you meet other people that have been to Nags head you say...." Did you eat at Sam and Omies?... read more

would not serve us breakfast at 10:55 a.m.!!!!! Said they were done for the day with breakfast. If you are in a major resort area you would think tourism would be important and that potential customers would be important.... apparently they had made enough money for breakfast!!!!!! would not recommended and certainly will not go back!!!!!

Still the best breakfast in town...and a great bloody mary. Go early or wait, but it is worth the wait. Good coffee and fast service.

I guess their typical breakfast hours are pretty early because when I was there (around 8:30 or 9:00am) the staff was busy preparing for lunch and not very responsive to my requests. But the food was great!

Our family has been making sure we go to Sam and Omie's every time we are in Nags Head for years. Great food, great service! Have had a number of things in their menu, all are great! Long wait at certain times, come early!

We were a little disappointed with this restaurant. Several folks had recommend it, but we were not impressed. Don't order the GRILLED crab cake sandwich. Too much filler and not enough crab meat.

Lived here all our lives. Been coming to Sam & Omie’s since we were kids. Never had a bad meal or poor service. Everyone is great from the staff to the Owners. Has a real down home, comfortable feeling – warm and friendly. Were very disappointed to see that Deda Evans, the girlfriend of Doug Tutweiler (Manager of Pamlico Jack’s... More

Ate here for breakfast and it was awesome each time. RCMD groups getting in before 9, or singles eating at the bar. Food is very good, service is great and the prices are very reasonable.

This restaurant has been there forever. You can't visit Nags Head and not eat breakfast here. You can't go inside and not think you've gone back in time. Most locals eat breakfast here.
