Sunset Bistro

Reviewed By Hollis P - Westampton, New Jersey

Don’t let the strip center location be offsetting. The Sunset Bistro is an excellent choice when dining out in BG. The menu is creative with something to please everyone. There are sandwiches (try the apple, Brie and caramelized onion), flatbreads, burgers, appetizers, salads and entrees. The restaurant prepares a family recipe of hash browns, peas and cauliflower which is excellent. Everything is very reasonably priced and the servings large. Prepare to take something home. The bar, with limited offerings, is sufficient. The Midwest offers lots of good, basic comfort food establishments, but this female owned and operated bistro gives diners the opportunity to try something that is deliciously different.

Easy Street Cafe

Reviewed By Turner A - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Our families were in town for the big soccer tourney. The town was cool and otherwise welcoming. The tourney was very organized and fun! The Easy St cafe was recommended, but we had 13 people....we said repeatedly we didn't mind being split up!! They made one excuse after another on why we couldn't be seated. "You can't be in two different sections, you can't have kids at a table without an adult....." the list went on and on. It was like a Seinfeld episode. Actually , kind of funny when you think about it. We ended up going down the street to SAMB's! Great service and they welcomed us with open arms. Easy Street --No idea if the food was any good.....looked like a cool place.

Reviewed By Gradwohl28 - Toledo, Ohio

Stopped into Campus Polleyes over the weekend with some out of town guests. Still got it. The breadsticks are fantastic. My only issue is that I don’t have a place to take a nap nearby anymore after eating an order. Keep up the good work. Can’t wait to come back.

Oh my goodness. Who would think the best Mexican food I've had in years would be in bowling green Ohio. What a wonderful treat. Great margarita on the rocks with salt, tdf guac, chips and beans. Hubby loved his rice (not typical) and my poblano pepper relleno was memorable. I would highly recommend this place! Great waiter--elisio. Yum!!!

Reviewed By Maggie T - Findlay, Ohio

We were there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We know the food is always good, and the servers are exceptional. My husband ordered onion rings as an appetizer, and they were huge! I ordered that night's soup, and it everything I expected. The entrees came out quick, and they were delicious. We were too full to have any dessert. I really enjoy the atmosphere at SamB's. It's also nice that they have parking behind; otherwise, parking would be a nightmare.

Naslada Bistro

Reviewed By Rob K

NaSalada is a gem. A family owned restaurant serving Bulgarian chow. All food is prepared with extreme care and creativity. The menu evolves so menu fatigue is rarely an issue. A creative collection of beers and a nice selection of wines at bargain prices. The servers are well trained and helpful. Each visit is a pleasure. Although we typically go for dinner, this is an excellent lunch option as well. The home made soups and sandwiches are especially appealing on a nippy fall or winter day.

Reverend's Bar & Grill

Reviewed By k e - Forest Park, Illinois

We were walking around looking for someplace to eat in a cold rain, and Reverend's seemed perfect. Yummy fresh food creatively prepared. My husband had the BLT with trout and I had the meatloaf sandwich. Great sourdough bread. The chips and fries were excellent. We sat at the bar, and service was fast and good. The beer selection was enough, and the bartender knew about the beers, and the atmosphere suited us fine on a Tuesday night. I would come back to this place.
