An employee was there for her last day and a coworker threw a pie in her face so the atmosphere was fun but then the service seemed slow. Some of the other patrons who came in after us seemed to wait a long time for their food. My husband had a Mahi Tuna special which he said was very tasty... More

No banners flying across the beach by planes, no pirates at the front door, no BS, just good food and good service. Has been in business for many years. In my opinion, you will get a better value and better overall food quality than at a majority of the other restaurants.

What a great find! My boys demolished the pancakes and they asked for chocolate chips which they put on top warmed up to spread like butter. I was almost jealous except I had the sausage gravy over biscuits which had a lot of pepper. Perfect for me since I love pepper. I ordered the large but could have easily gotten... More

Very busy restaurant but worth the wait. Breakfast was fantastic. Felt like eating at home if you had the time or wanted to cook.

Our annual beach trip to Nags Head always includes a trip to Sam & Omie's. This year we went twice for lunch and were pleased both times. They serve good food at a reasonable cost. The restaurant is rather short on seating and there is usually a line. The waiting area is outside in a screened porch with a bench... More

Stopped here on our last day in the OBX and had the fish cakes special. The food was great and the service was good. I'm glad we got there early though as the dinning room filled up fast. I'll be back again for more in the fall.

We go to Sam & Omie's for breakfast every year when we visit the OBX. Sometimes we get to sit right down, sometimes there is a wait, but it never disappoints. The breakfasts are simple, down home meals including eggs done all ways, flat stacks, and sides like hash and toast. The staff is always friendly and very efficient, dealing... More

Our server was very pleasant. My husband got the Crab Eggs Benedict and said it was very good. My breakfast which was eggs and sausage was just okay.

It feels like 'old home week' at Sam & Omie's Restaurant - the waitresses know the names of many customers, and their beach vacation schedules. Be ready to wait in line when you enter - but the line moves fast the the hostess keeps things moving. I had a Nags Header sandwich (turkey, cheddar on toasted rye bread) with onion... More

Good eats and great local atmosphere. This restaurant becomes a must go to each time we visit the Outer Banks. Sam & Omie's is a tradition for so many. We have friends who get really jealous when we send them pictures of us enjoying the fare.
