Bowdies Chophouse - Saugatuck
It’s a cozy little place. Food was amazing and the sides are huge! Burrata salad was perfect. Def check with your server to make sure you’re not ordering too much. Cocktails were delicious as well. We will certainly return!
Tremendous experience. As good if not better than many Chicago area steakhouses.
Bowdies is always amazing. I travel for my job and eat in the nicest places in the country. Bowdies is hands down my favorite. Big city quality and flavor, as well as options. I live out on the east side where is quality just can’t be found. It would be amazing if they opened a place in the Milford Mi area. It would be an overnight success.
Sincerely, A. Peterson
Great server and great cocktails. Consistently good!
It was an off night I guess. The tomahawk chop ribeye was way undercooked. Server said new chef just learning to cook steak (great!). Had way better visits in past. This time was disappointing.
Outstanding fine dining in this quaint tourist town. Absolutely recommend eating at Bowdie‘s if you really enjoy fine dining.
Always exceptional food, service and ambience.
Excellent service and incredible food
We ate at Bowdie’s for our anniversary in 2018. As soon as we knew we were spending another weekend in Saugatuck this year, the first thing we did was make a reservation. It was just as amazing this time. It is sure to be our “go-to” for dinner every time we visit. There is nothing we dislike. The food, the service, the atmosphere, all top notch. This was the first visit to Bowdie’s for our friends and they couldn’t stop talking about it. Highly recommended it. You will not be disappointed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first dinner at Bowdie's! We've never been able to make reservations. It is a small cozy venue, though we chose to eat outside on a perfect evening. The busy hostesses were friendly and efficient. Chelsea was our excellent server. She was clearly comfortable and experienced with the menu and we appreciated her help in making our selections! Because I'm gluten free I hadn't had crab cakes in many years and was able to enjoy them with the glutened sauce on the side for my husband. They were wonderful! The filet was perfect and the truffle fries are legendary for a reason. The Brussels sprouts with pork belly were tasty. Worth the drive from GR; we'll be back! Thank you, all! Well done!
Another great meal at Bowdies for my birthday!
What a wonderful experience. We originally had 9:30 reservations, that seemed rather late. We were offered earlier seating at the bar, and that was great. Terrific bartender, fantastic staff, great cocktails & butter-like steaks. Can’t wait to visit again.
Amazing steaks, delicious sides, large portions, outstanding service. Always a favorite for special occasions.
The food was one of the best I've been to and the staff was incredible!! We will be back. :)
Birthday celebration. Everything was absolutely perfect!
Great food and service
Always a treat!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
When we arrived we asked for an outside table but was told they were all taken. We noticed one that was empty but was told it was reserved so we were seated inside. The entire time we were there (hour and a half) the table sat empty. We had this reservation since June but did not specify outside so it was partially our fault.
The food was outstanding as always. Our server, Lawrence, was excellent. We will continue to make Bowdies a part of our trips to Saugatuck.
Once Again Bowdies Never disappoints!! Great food and the best service anywhere!! Try it once and you will be hooked!
Food and service were wonderful. Love that you have Peju on your wine list!
Lawrence was our server and he was excellent! Very personable. Able to recommend wine/drinks. Filets were melt in your mouth!
Great dinner...Nick is a fun waiter that made the evening even more enjoyable!
Bowdies is one of our favorites and the food and service (Mel) never disappoint.
Always awesome food and service
Excellent service from our server, Kendal, and hostess, Abby. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and were seated outside. Wonderful food. We will return. Oh, and excellent aviation cocktails!
Our third time visiting. A few issues with the food but the bartender took care of it and overall a good experience
Everything was wonderful! We had dinner here the last night of our vacation and it was perfect. Be sure to make reservations days in advance.
The food is good, but the menu is what the menu is. They can't accommodate larger parties, not sure why, but twice be have been put at a table too small. If you don't live near a steak house, then it's worth checking it out, otherwise, there are plenty of other restaurants to choose from.
Going to this restaurant I had high expectations. From the moment my wife and I sat down and had our fist cocktail all the way to our desert, we were blown away by the quality of our drinks and the delicious food and excellent service. The prices may seem a bit high but do not let that scare you away from an amazing night with ambiance to fit the moment. I highly recommend Bowdies Chophouse.
Love this place! Steaks are incredible. Service is amazing too.
Best restaurant in Saugatuck! The space is cozy and refined. And the menu is fairly limited but all delicious. We loved both the bone-in ribeye and the bone-in filet. Both of steaks and many of the salads and sides are large enough for 2 to split. Only one small complaint: When splitting a steak, request a hot plate for the extra plate, as otherwise they will bring you a cold one.
We were celebrating the last night of our family vacation. We had such a good experience at Bowdies two years prior, that our kids begged us to take them back. The sides were delicious (especially the mushrooms, grilled corn & truffle fries), and the steaks were cooked to perfection which, of course, you should expect at this price point! :) The homemade doughnuts were also a big hit.
Amazing food and attentive staff! Highly recommend!
Great as always!!
It was a birthday dinner and everything was exceptional! The service with Nick was spectacular...he is knowledgeable, attentive with a smile, and makes everyone feel "at home"! Each of our meals was perfection and the special "brownie birthday treat" was a nice touch! (we all shared a little!). It was amazing...should be on the menu!
Absolutely great. Compares favorably to any Top Chicago steakhouse. Worth the drive to Saugatuck just for dinner.
Regan was great.... Drink recommendation was good and filet was superb
