Looking for a great breakfast, this is it. The portions are huge. The pancakes and syrup are fantastic. The bacon was to die for, so thick and yummy. The service was super fast even at a busy time. Good family restaurant. You wont leave hungry.

The restaurant was clean and mixed in with a gift shop which was somewhat unique.

When the food arrived it was decent size portions... More

This is the second time we have come for breakfast and we were happy both times! Service is friendly and breakfast was great! Atmosphere is a little old school but for breakfast you can't go wrong. Also had crab Benedict and pancakes all good!

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
