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.

My fave dive in OBX where the locals go. LOVE the waiting staff and bartender Nancy; she remembers me every year...even my drink order! Great breakfast. Fish and eggs are killer. Great seafood platters for dinner. Awesome omelettes and sausage gravy also.

Thought we'd check out this quaint spot. Fun visit. Food was fine, service not so good. Fun history for the restaurant.

Had a chicken salad sandwich that was AWESOME! Service was fast and friendly. Not that fries make a meal, but their french fries were cooked just perfect, and made a great companion to the chicken salad sandwich.

We always stop by Sam & Omie's for lunch when we are in the area and their tuna steak sandwich is just simply the best! The shrimp burger is also delicious.

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
