Great Sandwiches

We decided on sitting at a booth. The servers were polite and quick to respond. I ordered the Reuben sandwich which was perfectly prepared.

This food tastes like Bob Evans without all the salt, and is wildly inconsistent in taste and presentation. The whole restaurant smells like the bottom of a chef's shoe. Most of the staff, with the exception of a couple gems, are rude and bitter. You literally walk right by the bathrooms to get to your table, so that can make... More

Our son attends BGSU, so we've been to Sambs frequently. We have never had a bad meal. The prime rib is outstanding, and the burgers are first-rate. The service is fast and friendly. If you are looking for kale, this is not the place, but for good meats and seafood, check it out. It's solid.

As someone who doesn't eat meat, I can always find a delicious and healthy seafood or vegetarian option at SamB's. Nowhere else in Bowling Green can you find salmon as fresh and flavorful. My favorites are the gorgonzola salmon and the blackened salmon. I also love SamB's Spinach Apple Salad and they make all dressings in house! I just had... More

My husband is diabetic and doesn't eat carbs. When he asked if he could substitute vegetables for potatoes he was told that the management would absolutely not do that. I would think that is a fairly common request and to not offer that accommodation seems ridiculous. Yes, it was the daily special, but why should that make a difference. He... More

Gail, First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to correspond to us. We take great pride in our restaurant and strive for nothing short of excellence with our food and service. Sometimes we simply fall short of our goals and best intentions, which is no excuse but rather an unfortunate reality, which manifested itself... More

I used to eat here quite often a while ago. Decent food, decent value. Quite a clean place when you visit for lunch! Though there is one thing that I have long noticed about the place: they literally play the same. songs. every single day. I mean I used to eat here quite frequently and every single time I would...

Love this place! The black & blue burger was amazing and my wife's salmon was excellent. Can also recommend the French onion soup.

I really enjoyed my experience at Sam B's. I was seated promptly, given great suggestions from the waitress, food was served hot, and the prices were very reasonable for what you get. If you are ever in Bowling Green make sure you get a chance to stop in and see some of the communities artwork in Sam B's. They offer... More
