The meal is mediocre, need to scale back the choices and pick one meal from each if their breakfast, lunch, and dinner and make them stand out! Then build on those! Soups taste like they're out of a can!, bread for sandwiches dry, thin sliced lunch meats, salad tasted old. I could of stayed home and done better. Too much... More

Lil Sambo's is an establishment that looms large in my memory. As a child, growing up in the 60's and 70's, we made many trips to the coast and often stopped at Lil Sambo's for a meal. This visit did not quite live up to my expectations. The croissant breakfast sandwich was okay, but not anything special; hash browns were... More

I had the razor clams breakfast and my husband had the corned beef hash. Both were wonderful. Coffee on the cold side, but waitress was there alone, other waitress slept in. Fun gift shop.

On our way home we wanted a late breakfast. This was our first time to Lil Sambo's. We were very pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing and not too pricey, the wait staff courteous and friendly. We will definitely return for a breakfast next time we are in Lincoln City. There is a great gift shop inside as well, we... More

As a kid we always went to Sambo's for breakfast on our summer vacations to the beach so I thought I would try it since I hadn't been there for years. It did not disappoint. Parking was good, It was very spacious inside and probably, because it was off season, it was not at all crowded and took no time... More

Nice beach gift shop. Wonderful restaurant for kids and families. Lots of choices between booth and tables. We have been going here for many years and will continue to... More

The food was good and reasonably priced. They seemed to be short on waiting staff. Two people for the whole restaurant. The waiter was very busy. The waitress was a young lady who was standing at the counter putting silverware together while some man in his 50's was trying to hit on her. He was talking so loud that you... More
