The food is SO good here! You might have to wait a bit but it goes really fast. The bar will serve you coffee until your table is ready. Crab Benedict for the win! They also serve lunch and dinner.

I always make it a point to come here every year. Oyster sandwich or tuna steak sandwich are the best!

My family has been visiting Sam and Omie's since 2007...an exiting OBX tradition. But that will likely change. Sunday ( Oct 21) when we arrived ( 11:10 a.m.) our party of 4 was told 30-40 min wait. 45 min later I simply and respectfully asked...More

My husband found this little gem of a restaurant a few years ago and we went this last week. This place is small, but the service is great and the food is just down home good. Great for breakfast.

We have been visiting obx since 1978 and this was our first visit. I don't know why we waited so long. Great lunch and service. Fresh and well cooked food!
