Bowdies Chophouse - Saugatuck
Dinner was a lovely, relaxed event. There were four of us, and we all had fantastic steaks, which we consider among the best we've had. The women had the filet mignon, and the guys had the cowboy ribeye. Great Manhattans, too. Jeff, our server, was impressive - first-rate. A great night had by all.
Excellence in her as always Danielle was a terrific server
Absolutely OUTSTANDING ... all the way around!!! Phenomenol food, exceptional service, fantastic atmosphere ... I can't recommend Bowdie's highly enough ... we LOVED it!!!
Every time I go here it is on point. Any appetizer I’ve tried has been great but the steak and the truffle fries are what originally won me over.
The food, service and wine were all wonderful. The steak is amazing, but they have great options if you are interested in other foods. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Birthday dinner and It was fantastic. Filet and a bottle of Groth. With some mushrooms. Wow. Just wow.
Super great! Love the Sinatra music. Food/drink was à la perfection!
While all of the food is really really terrific......it's that Tomahawk!! Oh my . Oh, and the Truffle Fries, and the Shrimp Cocktail, and the lamb chops....oh, and the Au Gratin Potatoes, and the Escargot, and the Wedge Salad, and the Beignets with three sauces...….but oh, that Tomahawk!! It keeps us coming back for just one more. Oh, and that Rose Veuve.
Great drinks and steak
Really enjoyed our birthday dinner at Bowdies! Our waiter, Jeffery, was extremely helpful and attentive. Great steak, especially the filet mignon!
Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. Lousy dirty martini!
Best steak dinner you'll ever have!
Excellent evening. It was Diana’s and I 29th wedding aniversy. We were in last June for my brothers 80th birthday. Your food service atmosphere and overall experience is 5 star. Thank you for a great experience .
Wonderful food, perfect service and atmosphere is relaxing but fancy enough that the occasion feels special.
You can easily hear what others in your company says and have a private moment as well without thinking about your neighbors.
The filet mignon was melting in my mouth, the potato gratin enhanced the beef but could have more flavours but if you take one of the sauces on the side then the combination is perfect.
You will always leave satisfied after a visit at the Bowdies chophouse-Saugatuck.
The food and service were excellent. We did have dinner on Friday, December 28 so it was packed......the noise level was a little high but probably to be expected considering the holidays.
Jeff, wait staff outstanding! Knows his stuff and delightful.
The steak was fantastic and the service was spot on. We enjoyed our meal!
Portions are good, we often split a couple sides and a steak. The Lobster Mac and Cheese is amazing. You really can't go wrong with any steak you order.
Food was wonderful, our waiter was great.
A bit pricy
Consistently great food. The only thing better is the staff..friendly, professional and engaging
At the servers suggestion ("we're known for steaks") I had the 10oz filet. It was amazing, I had their Bowdie's Sauce on the side, and it was really REALLY good, but the steak was SO good, it seemed wrong to "sauce it up" simply amazing meal. 10oz is quite a lot for me these days so with the family sized sides, I ended up taking an entire meal home. And it reheated to perfection, almost as good as it was on the plate. I also took my sauce home and I'm enjoying it on lesser meats!
My husband and I had a blast! Went the Saturday before Christmas. Festive atmosphere and music. The food was fab.
Danielle did a great job
Good was overpriced. It too over an hour to get our food. Patrons who came after us were served before us. Salads come whole, you have to cut them up yourself. When asked about it, we were given a teacher lesson from the head server who totally missed the point. They perseverated on the size instead of what we were asking.
Excellent in every respect, especially service. The place is so small it immediately creates an atmosphere of intimacy, so that you feel that everyone has known everyone else for a very long time. A lovely experience.
Jack as always was awesome
The food is very well prepared and large portions for sharing. We prefer Bowdies over all other steak houses or Chop Houses in West Michigan.
Have been here several times. The food and service are great. It is a small dining area - and the downside to that is I’ve often been seated to a loud table. So loud that you can’t carry on a conversation with your dinner companions. I will wait until summer when outdoor dining is available.
We enjoyed our evening. A little expensive to do regularly, but for special celebrations it was great.
This place serves the most amazing food every time we have dined with them. We go here for special occasions and sometimes just a quiet dinner for my husband and I.
The service is A+
Amazing as always. Looking forward to New Years Eve!!!
It is the only place to go for the best in food atmosphere and service!!
We had our company Christmas dinner here and was absolutely blown away of the entire experience. I highly highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place for a fancy dinner. The food was top notch and the service was second to non. 5 ⭐️
The steaks are the very best. Cannot be beat. The service is excellent. A treat. Pricey.
Our favorite server....Jeffrey was again fantastic. The special Manhattan alone is worth the visit.
The filet is the best ANYPLACE. We always look forward toi going and have never been disappointed.
We highly recommend. Jerry
Our experience is always great at Bowdies. The food is absolutely excellent and the service is fantastic. We've been around a bit and this restaurant always ranks at the top with some of the very best. Have the lamb. Best I've ever had.
As always, the food was awesome, the steaks were cooked to perfection, scalloped potatoes were done perfectly with crispy edges and the brussels sprouts were amazing! Great service and a fun time for my husband’s birthday. We love this place!
The food was great! We started with escargot which was buttery and garlicky deliciousness. Then for our entree we had the tomahawk steak for two with the scalloped potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Perfection on a plate! The steak had just enough char on the outside and medium rare on the inside. Our waitress was attentive but not intrusive. Wonderful evening for a special occasion.
Everything was great, however the prices are more than I would expect given its location.
One of the best steaks I’ve had since we moved to Michigan 29 years ago.
Great experience from start to finish! The filet, and truffle fries are some of the best I have ever had. Thank you for the great food and service. Will definitely be back
