This no-nonsense niche, named after two fishermen who were father and son, opened in 1937 and is one of the Outer Banks' oldest restaurants. Fishing illustrations hang on the walls, and country music plays in the background. Locals love breakfast here; dinner brings all manner of seafood. Try the crab and eggs benedict or fine marinated tuna steak. The kitchen has been using the same she-crab soup recipe for 24 years. Die-hard fans claim that Sam & Omie's serves the
best oysters on the beach.
