Fodor's Review

Named after two fishermen, father and son, this no-nonsense shack opened in 1937 and is one of the Outer Banks' oldest restaurants. Fishing photos hang between mounted catches on the walls, and classic country music twangs in the background. Locals flock here, especially for breakfast or a lunch of Hatteras-style clear clam chowder and fried seafood. The kitchen has been using the same she-crab soup recipe for more than 25 years. Die-hard fans claim that Sam & Omie's serves the best oysters on the beach.
