A year later and still good.

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

Came here for solo dinner. Food was very good, had the strip steak. Cooked perfectly and bartender was very nice friendly. Clearly BG 's upscale restaurant. Decent choice of wines.

I love the food! What more can I say? The food is great, the prices are fair and you will definitely want to go back again and again.

This building has been the site of a restaurant for over 45 years. SamB's is a nice restaurant for a weekend dinner with family or friends. It's my sister-in-law's favorite restaurant. They have a good selection and I've never had a bad meal here.

Seeing as this joint is allegedly "the best dining option in Bowling Green" I took my wife there for her birthday. The had ribs on special, an affordable price, so I specifically went for the ribs--I like ribs. When we sat down to order, the waiter said, "Sorry, we're completely out of ribs." We were disappointed, but understood that, when... More

My parents had come into town for my birthday, and wanted to take them somewhere local. My boyfriend and I had gone to Sam B's once before and really enjoyed it. The restaurant was not overly crowded for a Friday night, and were seated quickly. The waiter was friendly and upbeat. My boyfriend noticed on their specials menu that if... More

We were visiting our son at BGSU and decided to try this place out before we bring our family here for a graduation dinner. We sat in the bar area. Our waitress was very pleasant and very attentive. The meal selections are a wide variety. Burgers, fish, pasta, salads, steaks, etc. Most of us opted for burgers and they were... More
