Had founder, crab cakes, and chicken tender. Portions were good food was fantastic. Service was the icing on the cake. Waitress told us about breakfast and we stopped in a few days later. Yet again wonderful food. Pancakes were top notch.

Been going here for over 20 years. You can't beat the good & friendly service and because of that ... Be prepared to wait, especially for breakfast but always well worth it as anyone will tell you!

I don't know that is absolutely a fact but I would assume with high probability that they do. You may want to contact them directly.

Is Sam & Omie's still open or are they closed for the season? I'll be in town this weekend (11/7/15) and hoping to have breakfast there.
