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. The establishment has held close ties with BGSU, being a proud partner of BGSU Athletics. In 2016, the establishment was given the “Award of Excellence” by TripAdvisor. SamB’s is the place to feed your hunger.
While having a large variety on their menu for lunch, dinner and happy hour, SamB’s also has weeknight specials and weekend features as well. Some of these dishes are not served daily, so they a…

Doc's Big City Saloon

Image
Doc’s Big City Saloon is a laid back country style bar and grill located in the heart of Bowling green at 145 N Main Street.  Live music and pool tables will keep you entertained while enjoying your food and drinks.  I have been to this bar multiple times and have enjoyed personalizing my own sandwich, trying their signature mason jar cocktails, and playing pool. The best experience that I have had at Doc’s was on Halloween because it was crowded but I still received quality service while a lot of the other bars were so crowded it was hard to move or get attention from the servers or bartenders. There are many great everyday drink specials including 30 different choices of $3 domestic cans and bottles, $4 for any draft beer, and an assortment of $5 mason jar cocktails.  On Tallboy Thursday's all 16 oz cans are only $2 and in addition the mason jar cocktails are reduced down to $4. Doc’s has home-style menu starting with appetizers including battered green beans, breaded chicken te…
