Great local place

Good food. Great price. My daughter had a cheeseburger and said it was awesome. My chicken was great too.

We visit Sam & Omie's every time we are in Nags Head! The food is good, simple and fresh. The first trip we made to Nags Head, we ate at Sam & Omie's twice (which is a major sin in our travels, but it was just that good!)

Food is good depending on what you get, however the mean waitstaff at this joint certainly brings the whole experience down and not worth visiting. We visited a couple of times thinking that it was just the older woman we had where she must of had a bad days since she was extremely rude to us and very slow, so... More

Walked into the restaurant and waited to be seated for quite some time. Waitresses kept walking past us. Never acknowledged that we were there. No greeting. It was lunch time and not busy. Once seated the waitress was annoyed that I asked for a kids menu. She never made eye contact and her tone was rude. Once the food arrived... More

Have eaten there in the past - not recently (in last 2 yrs.), but burgers very good and good service. We don't enjoy being in bars (or bar-type atmosphere), so we usually eat there for lunch.

Loved this place! Service was excellent and food was great! The clam strips were HUGE and all the meals had very generous portions. The cornbread was by far the BEST I have ever had; it was moist and cakey, not dry like you typically find in other restaurants. Prices were very reasonable. Would definitely visit here again.

My wife and I visited Nags Head, North Carolina for the first time over the Easter weekend. Never having been to Nags Head before, we did not know of any good places to eat. One of the desk clerks at the hotel where we were staying suggested Sam & Omie's Restaurant. The restaurant does not look all that impressive on... More

Went here with my family in late March. Tried lots of things and all of it was great: Hatteras clam chowder, seafood bisque, calamari, blackened drum. My son had the fried seafood combo and liked it; breading was just right (not too heavy). We will definitely go back.

Is there any need to even sing the praises of this place? I expect it has an old timers fan base that will have you waiting in line at any given time. Old style and back in time decor and feel - If you want modern head elsewhere. Love that shrimpburger of their's!!

I had a waffle and my wife had the blackberry crepe. The waffle was good but my wife just loved the crepe. Kept the coffee cup full. Very good.
