We arrived for breakfast. They seated our party of 7 fairly quickly considering the number of people there to eat. After dining there, I can see why they have been in business for sos many years. We will definitely return here especially for their "McOmie"!

located right in front of the Jenette's Pier, external visual appearance is somehow odd and would probably need fresh paint and better marketing. This said, once inside, things are friendly with a pleasant and fast service. All seafood is not fried (which is great), portions are good and prices affordable. It ranges between fastfood and restaurant, good place to go... More

I've visited this gem way more than the date listed but admittedly it was my most recent listed in this review. Come hungry and come early. This place fills up fast. The food is delicious and the wait staff is so friendly. This restaurant has a full menu and bar, but my favorite meal here is the breakfast. It's simply... More

This place is always packed, but that just shows that they have some good cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a bar for those important chilled beverages. I love their shrimp burger with cheese!

Breakfast is OK, but Don't go close to closing - they won't seat you. Plenty of other places around, though.

We stopped here while waiting to check in to our condo - it was recommended by the building manager. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer and I had a delicious grilled "Rachel" which is similar to a Reuben but made with grilled tuna. Delish! I'd get it again in a heartbeat. My husband had the crab cake sandwich. He said it... More

TOok a ride and near the end of the ride stopped by Sam and Omies for breakfast. It was just 8:45 and the morning rush was slowing, we waited just a few minutes. I got the berries and yogurt with granola. Lots of berries in a large bowl. Service was quick and efficient. My friend had an omelet and it... More

This place was booming at 1:00 pm on a Saturday afternoon. Be prepared for a long wait (about 45-60 min). We enjoyed a cold drink while waiting (ample seating for those waiting). This place is heavy on seafood. The fried oyster sandwich was yummy, as was the clam chowder (clear broth). Others in our party had the she-crab soup and... More
