    Excellent service. Ambiance nice. Very disappointed with the crab cakes. Have had them in the past and were excellent. This time they were runny and a bit too salty. Bone marrow was amazing as was the bisque.

    Bowdies Saugatuck is really good restaurant. Food is consistent, service really good. We only had 1 problem our table was occupied for 30 minutes longer than our reservations. Tough spot for restaurant, but that’s what you get with restaurant with 8-10 tables.

    Our reservation for 4 was at 7. We received a call about 20 minutes before telling us they were behind in our res by 10-15 mins. When we arrived at about 6:50, we asked if we could get a drink in the bar while we waited. Answer was no; all tables (even those at bar) are reserved. They suggested we wait outside (in MI in January) or go to the bar across the street. Table wasn’t available until 7:30. Service was good; food was good. Two in our party has Oban scotch “neat”; when we reviewed our bill there is a $6 up charge (on top of $17 for the drink) for them to serve it neat. Between the lack of seating (or space to even stand) to wait and the up charge for “neat” - the whole vibe felt like there is more interest in squeezing customers out of as much $$$ as possible rather than an outstanding dining experience at a high-end restaurant.

    We were excited to finally have an opportunity to visit Bowdies. Our food was delicious. Our waiter did great until the very end when ahead of asking if we’d like dessert, he said “so is this going to be it for you tonight?” It fell like a rush all of a sudden. The other downside was the bar area which, although Bowdies feels like a very elegant restaurant, has a “bar crowd” that feels like a “local drinking joint:” Very loud and obnoxious. Detracted from the ambiance and enjoyment of this fine dining establishment.

    Another great meal was had at Bowdies! Starters included the shrimp bisque and escargot. Both were outstanding but my husband thought that there could have been more garlic in the escargot. I wasn't that hungry so I had the grilled caesar. As usual it was great. I brought half of it home. My husband dined on the porterhouse and it was prepared to perfection for him, rare. We each had some wine and after dinner coffee. Once again in terms of service and food, Bowdies did not disappoint!
