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.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2016

We have eaten here several times, and the service has always been excellent. The food is fantastic. I love the Sunday brunch. The French Toast with pecan/maple syrup is amazing, and the bacon is cooked just right. It feels like fine dining for lower cost.

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!

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.

3 of us showed up at noon and the place was almost full. We were greeted promptly and seated quickly. The waitress attentiveness was excellent. We each ordered either the French onion soup or BlackBean soup and either a tossed salad or the small Caesar salad. All arrived within 20 minutes and tasted great. The French onion soup had a...
