SamB's Restaurant

Image
Known for having the “best seafood” and being the “best place to be spoiled by your parents,” SamB’s is a restaurant you must experience. About a 15 minute walk from Bowling Green State University’s campus and five minute drive, it is the perfect place to gather with family and friends for a fantastic meal. SamB’s has been an establishment in the Bowling Green community since 1972, serving lunch, dinner and happy hour specials. When they first opened, SamB’s was just a small sub shop ran by three college students, and today the restaurant is one of the best places to go in Northwest Ohio.
