Great Stop for Lunch

In Bowling Green for business and my customer recommended eating at Sam B's. Ended up being a great choice. First tip if not from the area, plenty of parking behind the restaurant. They are right in town, parking on the street is a little tough with limited spots. We meet a little before the... read more

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

Dinner was excellent! I had a perfectly cooked steak and a great bottle of wine. Servers were knowledgable and friendly, will definitely eat there again.

Yesterday I stopped in for a quick lunch and really enjoyed the Chicken Nacho Salad. The lettuce and greens were fresh, the chicken was grilled perfectly, and the salsa topping made it delicious. I'll be back!

Don't let the storefront appearance scare you away. This is a fantastic restaurant. Excellent salads and entrees. I was tempted by the steak, the pastas, etc., but the waitress told me their fried chicken was a gem. Well, you don't get good fried chicken too often, so I tried it. Excellent. As I understand it, they bake it first, then... More

My daughter attended BGSU so were here often. Saturday night we had friends and family meet us for a late supper after graduation. I had the Horseradish Swiss burger. My wife loves their Rubens. Some of the other folks enjoyed the crab cakes. If you are lucky they occasionally have a Sour Cream Apple Pie with a Buttercrumb topping that... More

Have been here several times, and the food has always been so-so. It's a good place to meet friends and visit through a long lunch. Nice quiet atmosphere, good service and average food make for a relaxing time when you want to have social conversations in friendly surroundings.

Menu has good variety. It is a very traditional restaurant for a Midwestern town. However, they have a bit more selection of fish and seafood that might be found in a typical Midwestern town. Service was excellent. Waitress very helpful. The Lake Erie perch was very good. The dinning room needs to be updated. Overall a good experience

We were driving south to Fort Lauderdale and got as far as Bowling Green by about 8:30 the first night. We stayed at a The Sagging Mattress Motel (I won't mention the real name). The good part was that the night clerk recommended we eat at one of her favourite places, Sam B's. I'll keep it short. It was late... More
