It's dark. You stick to the seats. It's over priced compared to other places on the beach. The food is greasy and the fries are not good. Absolutely don't ask for water, it's not filtered and tastes like the Sound.

We had breakfast at Sam & Omie's. Staff was friendly and understanding of husbands allergies. Portions are large, I ordered the special and could only eat half.

Simple food, excellent taste, alcohol available all day. Almost went there twice during the same trip. Loved it. Went to Jennette's Pier while we waited for our table.

Relaxed loacal spot that will not disappoint those that seek authentic southern fresh fried seafood. This chef knows what true fried seafood should be. The gold standard used to be Calabash NC where the boats dump their catch and it gets fried and on your...More
