To Fine Dining
In the Spring of 1972, three enterprising BGSU students opened a one-room sub shop and named it SamB's in honor of playwright Samuel Beckett. Their menu consisted of a long list of submarine sandwiches, normally only found on the East Coast - in fact, the first subs ever sold in Bowling Green! SamB's restaurant has evolved into Wood County's best eatery offering healthful cuisine and casual dining in a relaxed atmosphere.
Offering a range of services to meet every catering need, Sam B's Restaurant has been Bowling Green’s favorite caterer since 1972. Our restaurant features five banquet rooms equipped with tasteful decor and private bars that can accommodate any event, or, if you prefer, our expert staff will bring the party to your home or another location of your choice.
All of our dinner entrees are prepared using only fresh products, including the finest cold water Salmon available. Our Steaks and Beef Tips are all choice grade or higher, and most are hand cut in our kitchen. Reservations are available.
