OMG! Who goes to the #1 steakhouse in West Michigan for Brussel Sprouts? Well, besides the best steak, chicken and fish in town......the Brussel Sprouts, piping hot and glazed in some sort of savory seasonings, are addictive. I heard that the owner loves his vegetables and these morsels of perfection are his favorite.

Wonderful dinner! Our server was wonderful, the atmosphere was quaint and the food was excellent. The Prime meat really stood out from any other steak house we have been to like Ruths Chris or Chop House. Extremely please with the soup and salad as well as the sides. The wine menu was phenomenal! We will be back for sure.

Everything was great. Besides great steak, chicken and fish, the addition of seasoned green beans is very welcomed. The truffle fries are addictive. The kitchen staff, bartenders and waitstaff could not get any better. All take pride in what they do.

We had been waiting to try Bowdies. It was excellent. We both had steak: a filet and the rib eye. Really enjoyed both! The waiter did a professional job of explaining portion sizes. Our only comment would be that the dining room is small. Be aware of that if privacy is wanted. The outside seating should be great fun in the summer.

Melanie was great, so helpful and attentive, she recommended we share a steak which was a perfect amount of food for us. The cocktails (from Kenton) were fabulous, the steak was delicious and the truffle fries were amazing! Definitely would recommend it and hope one day we will be back in the area so we can come again!

We dined upstairs and it was cozy and comfortable. The food was extremely high quality, well prepared with interesting twists to old favorites. The bone-in filet was outstanding. They got it right from marrow appetizer and wonderful craft cocktail through generous entrees and sides finishing with exceptional coffee and tempting dessert options. Loved it!

My wife and I spent the night in Saugatuck at the Wickwood Inn (fabulous!). They highly recommended Bowdies and we are glad they did. We wanted to see the second half of the Final Four game between Loyola and Michigan. We sat at the bar and Redmon, the barkeep, took excellent care of us. We ended up talking with him as much as watching the game, as he was such an interesting young man. Everything about our experience was perfect! We can’t speak highly enough of our dinner and the fine time we had. Many thanks!!

Two things: Get the Brussels and Belly (your taste buds will thank you), and wash it down with a copper goblets worth of Moscow Mule (little heavy-handed behind the bar, but who doesn't like that?!?). Will most certainly be coming back!

Our Saturday evening date was terrible at Bowdies. We were sat upstairs and there were 2 EXTREMELY loud tables that had complete disregard for the other 3 tables around them. 1 table was over-served and lets just say their topics discussed were not what everyone cared to hear. The food was okay - the caesar salad was extremely heavy with dressing, the brussel sprouts were saturated in the butter or oil and the filet was served on olive oil.

It was a very disappointing experience and not sure that we would go back.

We had another wonderful experience at Bowdies! We brought friends from out of town and they absolutely loved it. The steaks were cooked to perfection, the lamb was to die for and the cocktails are top notch. Never a bad dining experience here, thank you Regan, Jeff and Kenton!

Were unable to seat us for 30-45 minutes with nowhere to stand and no access to crowded bar. Food came approx. 1:45 hrs after arrival. Regulars came in after us and were seated immediately. Food good but would not recommend until they get better control of their reservations.

What a fabulous meal! The cocktails were so yummy, the goat cheese appetizer was fabulous, and the steaks couldn't have been better. And the bread pudding to end it all was out of this world. Overall, the setting was just exceptional. Amazing meal and a perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday.

We enjoyed an evening as a gift from friends. Reservations are required and can be made by phone for bar seating. Service was outstanding and ambiance delightful. Food and drink are very expensive. Dinner for two no less than $150. We decided to share the wedge salad and au gratin potatoes with our salmon and tenderloin. They offered husband extra veggies since he skipped his included whipped potatoes. No fewer than 40 florets arrived with his fish. WAY TOO much and was not a nice presentation.

Each time we/group have dined, Menu gets better. Not inexpensive - though large apps and entrée. Stiff cocktails are always a standard. Menu very limited for children.

Staff extremely conscientious of diners.
