    We enjoyed dining at Bowdies Chophouse on both Saturday and Sunday nights. Each experience was phenomenal and the service was exceptional. We love the new hightop stools with the backs, very comfortable. Appetizers were escargot and shrimp cocktail. Dinner on Saturday was the special lake trout and it was delicious. We always love the grilled Caesar salad and had that both nights. Sunday we enjoyed the Cowboy Ribeye cooked to the perfect temperature. Our guests had the Lobster Mac and Cheese and the other had the bone in Filet. Creamed spinach and fries completed the main event. Our server suggested the "best" chocolate cake and she was correct! Always a memorable treat!

    We had a great time at Bowdies! We sat upstairs and our server Lian (?) was so attentive and polite. Ww ordered the scallops for an appetizer which was soooo very good. We shared the Cowboy Ribeye and that meal was so very tasty! Our evening was fun and we enjoyed our meal! 10/10!

    As usual, our visit to Bowdies was perfect! Liana is awesome and very attentive. She makes you feel like you’re the only table in the restaurant. The steak was a little over done but still very delicious! Prices are high for sure but worth it. Will be back again and again!

The food is amazing; the filet melted in our mouths. Absolutely the best meal we had while. Highly recommend it!

    One of our favorite restaurants for special times. Great steaks and sides. Small and intimate with an inviting ambiance. Seasonal outside seating. Three options for inside seating includes the porch, main area with bar, and upstairs seating for a more quiet setting. Service is always friendly, attentive and professional. Bowdies is on our top five list located in southwest Michigan. Highly recommended.

    Steaks slightly overdone, low on flavor. Unusual for Bowdie’s. One of our favorite fine dining spots so it might have been an “off” night.
