Great breakfast

You know you have stumbled across a great place when you see all of the locals there. The food was great. They served large portions. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

We visited Sam and Omie's today for lunch and it was amazing. Our waitress was great, attentive without being intrusive. The food was so good. We were in the mood for fried seafood, and the meals we got were lightly fried, enough to still have the fresh taste of the fish but with a good crunch. On the way out... More

In late October myself and two friends all had the prime rib for dinner. Unusual in the fact it was salt encrusted. Very juicy,tender and delicious! Also had the egg Benedict on that trip and enjoyed very much.

My family visits Sam and Omie's ever year, and it never disappoints. They have a good size menu where you can find delicious breakfast, to seafood, to soups/sandwiches. I highly recommend ordering the fried veggie basket, it is so delicious and a great appetizer to share. I also am always impressed with the service at Sam and Omie's. The servers... More

We were staying nearby and heard good things and we were not disappointed! Spiced shrimp were fresh and cooked perfectly! Also tried the crab cake sandwich - awesome, highlight was the fresh tomato - most sandwiches have crap produce on them - Sam and Omie's did not skimp! We would guess that they likely source locally. The fried veggies are... More

We have been coming to the North Carolina Outer Banks (OBX) for years. We always stop at Sam and Omie's for at least one meal. We prefer breakfast, but sometimes there is just too long a wait. If that is the case we will try for lunch or supper. It does not matter - all are good. Keep in mind,... More

We haven't been to the Outer Banks in several years, but upon our return we made certain to eat here. This place has not changed. It is an old reliable....good job, good prices and friendly employees. Stormy, our server was very nice. My burger and crispy fries were perfect. An excellent place to eat.

We were out running about to the tourist attractions and we were close so we stopped. We just got a sandwich and fries which were good, nothing spectacular. Our waitress was a bit of a ditz and was not really attentive, she was very attentive to a group beside us but not sure what the deal was with us. There... More
