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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
