OBX breakfast at a fishermen’s haven

OBXDiningSamOmies

Since 1937, Sam & Omie’s Restaurant has been feeding fishermen in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Today, it also feeds hungry beach vacationers and longtime local customers at its cozy Nags Head eatery across the street from the beach and a fishing pier.

Sambo Tillet’s restaurant on the beach served breakfast to commercial fisherman before heading out on the water for a day’s work, the restaurant’s menu explains.

Sam & Omies Restaurant began as a haven for local fishermen.

Now, Sam & Omie’s is a hot spot among the weekend breakfast crowd, and it’s well worth the wait. The cozy, wooden-floor restaurant feels like a home away from home that welcomes beach visitors in their flip flops and swimsuit cover-ups. The crab and eggs Benedict at $13.99 is the priciest item on the breakfast menu, and it’s worth every penny. It’s crab meat over an English muffin with a hollandaise sauce and served with cubed hashbrowns. I also recommend the “Omie”lettes, which you can customize to your liking and even top with salsa.

Crab and Eggs Benedict with hashbrowns is delicious.

  1. Crab Egg Benedict…wish they served them here in the Midwest. Those look as delicious as the ones I enjoyed in The Fisherman’s Wharf district of San Francisco. Very nice review!
