A find. Gotta go here.

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... read more

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

This was our second visit. We enjoyed it as much as the first. Waleye pike was excellent - so was the chicken stuffed with herb butter. Service was excellent. It's fairly quiet and has decent atmosphere. If we lived 700 miles closer we'd go there more often.

I've been to Sam B's a few times and I thought they had good service! the server knew the menu very well and was very polite to us and we were seated right away and our food came out on time. We also had catering and it was very good and there were many options for us to chose from.... More

We dined at Sam B's for a business dinner on a Thursday evening and found the meal to have missed the mark. First, our server explained the specials with great enthusiasm, selling us on the preparation etc. three of the eight of us ordered the cod special. Moments later she returned to tell us that they only had two left,... More

Went to SamB's for dinner on a weeknight. The restaurant was not overly busy. Our server appeared to be taking care of two tables in the room in which we were seated. She first brought out sodas which were very watered down and flat. When she finally came back, she commented that they didn't look right to her when she... More
