SamB's has been around a long time. Food is still top notch, and the atmosphere is nice. The daily specials are always fresh and great!

Thank you for taking the time to review SamB's. Post funeral gatherings can present special challenges as they are, by nature, very late notice events. We try very hard to accommodate these situations with compassion and grace. We really do appreciate your kind words and 5 star rating. Thanks again. Jim Ferrell More

Had my son's graduation dinner here in December. They took reservations and tables were all set up ready when we got there. Manager very helpful. Wait staff efficient and courteous. Food very good.

I love going to Sam B's when I come to BGSU. During our last visit, we enjoyed their brunch. I had the most amazing French toast! It was made with baguette bread and had pecans and Granny Smith apples on it. The syrup was actually a honey maple glaze. It was to die for! The staff are always pleasant and... More

My family visited me the past weekend for our game and as always they requested to go to Sam B's for dinner. It was incredible to walk in and have the staff there remember my parents names. My dad requested to order something a bit off of the menu and they were extremely open to the idea and made it... More

I enjoyed the Salmon with Cranberry Rum sauce served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables while my husband had the Tuesday Night Special of BBQ Ribs, steak fries, and corn. Both were very good! Service by Sara was friendly and prompt and the owner (?) stopped by to check on our meals. The atmosphere was cozy and pleasant, the place... More

Celebrated my brothers birthday with a lunch here. We had chef salads and another companion had fried shrimp. Each meal was perfectly served and quite tasty. I would love to return to try something else. Highly recommended.
