Stopped at Lil Sambos for supper. At first, because of the early evening hour, no one was present to welcome or seat us. Finding a staffer who was vacuuming, we finally were given menus and a table. After a sketchy start, things settled down, and we ordered a mixed seafood dinner. The waitress, who had just come on duty, was... More

Service was slow even with only two other tables at 6:00 pm. No Substitutions on the menu selections or a hefty charge is added. Food was ok, nothing special a bit high price for hamburgers. Gift Shop inside the restaurant. Won't go back.

Love stopping here in this friendly family restaurant with fabulous food. It's on our must stop list each time we go to the coast and it never disappoints. Our personal favorites are the seafood omelette or salad (staying with the coastal theme) and soft, tasty pancakes (for the traditional side.) Love the holiday decorations and all the personal touches including... More

We came in for breakfast and we wish we would have just gone to mcDonalds instead. Both meals came out cold why we have no idea. They offered to microwave them ? WTH?? We wanted a fresh breakfast not one that has been warmed up like leftovers !!! We have ate here before and it was good but apparently not... More

We returned to Lil' Sambo's for breakfast during a recent stay in Lincoln City. The food continued to meet our expectations as did the customer service provided. Sambos consistently provides quality food and in large quantities.

It felt like something had gone wrong with staffing the day we ate here. The meal was OK, but one was cold and the service was slow and disorganized. You can do better than this on the coast without looking very hard.

This is a fun place to stop by and see. Best jelly ever!! I even bought some to take home. We stopped in several times while on vacation, always for breakfast. They have excellent bacon. The waffle was really good also. They served these huge cups of mocha coffee which were delicious. I think we stopped back just so we... More
