Fantastic steaks and service! Our server, Melanie, was so helpful, professional, friendly, she really made our experience extraordinary. We are from Chicago and thought this meal could compete with the best Chicago steakhouses. Thank you for a wonderful evening!!
This is the best steakhouse we’ve ever been too. In fact, we make it an annual dinner for our anniversary and travel quite a distance to get here. From start to finish the meal is amazing. The bone marrow appetizer is perfect and the steak was precisely cooked. Don’t forget to try the carrot cake as well!
You can always count on the food and service being outstanding. Our very favorite restaurant. Everything on the menu is amazing. Delicious fall menu preparation on the chicken. Beignets are superb and a must order every time.
I reserved a table for our anniversary. We arrived a little early, but were immediately seated upstairs. We ordered the shrimp cocktail and bone marrow appetizers, my husband had the shrimp bisque, I had the Kansas City steak, and we split the scalloped potatoes and mushrooms. The shrimp were huge, the steak perfect, and I’ve never seen scalloped potatoes like that before. The service was great, and I loved the standards played throughout.
Mel our server was outstanding. She was Professional, friendly
and helpful. It was an excellent meal, steak, salad
wine and desert. Thank you!
Pricing is not for the small wallet. But the quality of food preparation, presentation, and flavor is in matched in Michigan.
Delicious steaks, big portions, so plan on sharing sides. Our waiter was amazing. If you are looking for a nice fancy dinner out, I highly recommend them!
Mel was awesome - fantastic customer service. Steak was amazing and the au gratin potatoes and Brussels WOW
My partner and I celebrated his bday at Bowdie’s. The food was outstanding and our waiter Elijah was just incredible, he made our night. The whole night was truly an experience.
Thank you to the whole staff,
First of all our waiter Lawerence was Awesome. He welcomed us and made great suggestions and was attentive to our every need! We were in for our anniversary and it could not have been more perfect. Our shrimp appetizer was outstanding. The drinks we ordered were outstanding. And the two steaks we ordered were perfectly cooked. Very well seasoned! And the peanut butter brownie was very good. They took care of all the little things and made our evening very unforgettable!
Service was excellent as was the atmosphere. Food was quite good, would love to see some steak house staples in place and some other cuts of beef to choose from....we will be back....
Excellent food and service. I recommend eating at Bowdies.
My husband and I ate at Bowdies for his birthday dinner. The experience was 5 stars from start to finish. We had the Caesar Salads, Au gratin Poatoes, Mushrooms and the Filet. All were impeccable and the steak was the best we have ever had and we frequent a lot of steakhouses in Mi. We will be coming back for sure.
The main reason I am upset my this restaurant is because I put in the notes to put us inside and instead we were the the middle of the inside and outside where it was cold and the door was mostly open . More like a high top. They should be more specific about their indoor options. If I would of known we had to write low top I would of done that but how would anyone know
Great experience . We will be back.
Six of us have been coming to Bowdie's to celebrate birthdays for 5 years. It is always a highlight for everyone!
We have never been disappointed. Waitstaff is amazing and service is seamless. The food is superb--"you get what you pay for" and that is why it always such a special evening.
We had an amazing dinner. Everything was perfect!
Visited with my sister for a girl’s dinner. We had the best experience. Our service was great and our food was amazing. I’d highly recommend.
Our server Lawrence was superb!! It was a girlfriends birthday and it got a bit wild!
Thank you Lawrence!
Best dinner I have had in a long time!!! Steak was unbelievably delicious!
Outstanding! We knew it was considered one of Michigan’s top steakhouses and it did not disappoint. The steaks were fantastic, the wedge salad and au gratin potatoes were perfect complements, and the wine was outstanding. We ended our special birthday celebration with carrot cake! Service and ambiance were both amazing.
Shoutout to Elijah for a great experience!!
Great restaurant. Great food, great ambience. Will absolutely return.
Food and service were excellent. Quaint setting. Great place to celebrate special occasions.
Celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary here. The steak was fabulous... everything was done to perfection. Our server was very knowledgeable and tremendously accommodating. We will definitely return.
I usually love Bowdie's, however I suppose every restaurant has an "off-night". Still one of my faves in Saugatuck.
Lawrence was our server. Could not have asked for better service. He was excellent as well as the food. Overall great experience.
Our server Melanie (I believe) was outstanding. The food and ambiance were very good. They also were taking extreme precautions with covid. They disinfected the entire table and chair prior to us sitting down. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the courses. Escargot was extremely buttery and delicious. The shrimp bisque was the perfect temperature and texture. The steak wasn't as well done as I wanted but they quickly fixed it for me. I love that it came out on a heated plate baking in chive butter. The lobster mac had great presentation and was so delicious. We got the peanut butter brownie for dessert and it was creamy perfection. I would highly recommend coming to this restaurant when you visit Saugatuck.
After playing 18 holes of gold Bowdies was a perfect ending to a beautiful afternoon. Our server Lawrence was both friendly and informative. We ordered escargot and crab cakes for appetizers. Amazing as always. Then my husband and I split a cowboy steak and our friends had a small filet mignon and cowboy steak. We also ordered scalloped potatoes and sautéed spinach for our sides. Our food was served in a timely manner and hot. The way we like it. We were seated on the porch inside which was perfect after being in the sun all afternoon. Can't say enough good things about Bowdie's. It's our go to steakhouse. Thanks for making this a memorable evening.
We had an amazing evening and delicious dinner at Bowdies celebrating our anniversary! Jordan did an excellent job as our server and made the experience a memorable one for us!
We first sat at the bar while our table was being readied. Had two fabulous craft cocktails and an excellent mixologist. Well prepared appetizers, salads and our dinners were wonderful, the service spectacular! Recommend Bowdies highly. We look forward to a return visit.
We always have a great experience at Bowdies. Staff go above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. The food is always amazing and portions are large.
Our waiter was super! Lawrence. We highly recommend him for a great dining experience!!
Front porch was cold. The restaurant needs outdoor heaters.....
Amazing food and service. Would highly recommend!!
Overall very nice experience. Excellent service and the entrees / filet was excellent.
We love the Saugatuck Bowdies the best of all your wonderful restaurants. We’ve been to Lansing, East Grand Rapids, and the one we like best is this one. The food is fantastic at all the locations, but the ambiance in Saugatuck is just the icing on the cake. Melanie was our server and as always, a delight to have! We were meeting with good friends and we had the best time! We will be back again.
Had dinner at Bowdies for the first time in a 3-night getaway to Saugatuck. Very good service, small but on point menu. Steaks cooked to our liking. Sides are family style (we were warned) so too much food for a couple but ideal if you want leftovers!
This is probably our 6th time at Bowdies 3rd time with this particular couple and we have enjoyed our meals every time. Our server and manager, Melanie, was terrific.
Bowdies is a bit pricey but it’s always a treat to have a meal at this restaurant.
“We’ll be back!”
The food and service were excellent. Probably the best meal we have had during our week in Saugatuck. It's nice that they split the dishes as we had the caesar, the bone-in filet and au gratin potato. Enough for two. Drink were a bit on the expensive side but if you want a treat try the $20 Manhattan. It's a bit sweet and makes a nice dessert drink.
Steaks are excellent and side portions are huge. Reservations a must.
My favorite restaurant! We celebrate all special occasions here. Always Great food & atmosphere. Very consistent.
