So Bowdies in Saugatuck has been our go to steakhouse along the lakeshore, now we have a new go to in Grand Rapids. Bit of a different vibe than Saugatuck, but the quality remains. I would highly recommend Bowdies.

The food is delicious!! The customer service is excellent! The ambiance is a vibe. Fairly expensive but it’s worth every dime. Can’t wait until the world open. I will be back!

Celebrated her 50th birthday at Bowdie’s. As expected, they were exceptional. Food, service, selections. I certainly hope the pandemic doesn’t impact this fine, family owned spot.

We love it.

Simply our favorite restaurant experience, both in East and Saugatuck. You simply cannot go wrong. From incredible service to the best entrees in the area, it’s always wonderful.

Overall it was a pleasant experience. The food was very well prepared and plentiful. Initial service to our table was slow, but improved as the evening progressed.

Choices a bit limited, especially with sauces and dressings. No ranch?! Steak sauce was not good, salad was warm, filet was amazing but Kentucky not.

We had high hopes for Bowdie’s but everything from the service to the food wasn’t great. It took our server at least 10 minutes to come to the table and greet us. We ordered the Burrata appetizer and the peach was hard and flavorless and the baguette was burned. The food took an overly long time to arrive. The scalloped potatoes were super bland and the bottom was burned. My filet was so salty I could barely eat it. The server never checked on us after the initial cut into our steaks so we couldn’t say anything. The wine was good! Maybe they were having an off night, but for $300 we won’t risk it again.

This was our second time at Bowdies and we loved it more grand the first! The staff was engaging, knowledgeable and attentive. The atmosphere was romantic and perfect for a date night. The drinks were fantastic, the food amazing-of course we ate too much!
I’ve already made reservations for our next “date night.”

We have visited the Sagautuk location in the past and this was our first visit to the EGR location. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and everything was exceptional. Highly recommend Bowdie's Chop House to anyone looking for a wonderful meal and beautiful atmosphere.

Usually have a steak but decided to try the halibut feature. Was quite salty and dry and did not finish it. Server offered to replace and he brought out another to take home. Unfortunately this one was the same.

First time there and will definitely be back. Was advised to get one steak and share but my wife and I got our own and we're glad we didn't have to split. Cesar salad was awesome, and I don't usually like au gratin potatoes but they were fantastic. Can't wait for my next visit!

Food was delicious, service was very accommodating. Kitchen was running a bit slow. Danielle, our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and wine list. She was quite attentive to our dining needs. It was our 15 year anniversary and we were blessed with a complimentary pour of wine and a dessert. My perception of value is summed up by a $10 order of french fries seasoned with Truffle salt. Too expensive for fries. everything else is supposed to be expensive, but not fries.

The food was outstanding! Music level could have been a bit lower, could barely hear each other talking across the table. Service was a bit lacking/slow, but he accommodated/comped us as he knew it (we did not ask for this, he simply did it). Overall, highly recommend and will definitely return!

Our anniversary dinner was absolutely wonderful. Your staff is so attentive from beginning to end. We were disappointed In ourselves in not pacing our eating and having to take so much home. Unbelievably, my filet was almost as delicious as it was in your restaurant. I do believe that the lobster Mac was the most delicious food I have ever had in my mouth!! Thank you, Bowdie’s.

The food was exquisite and the service matched. However it was disproportionately loud for the number of people - it seemed as is the restaurant turned the volume of the music up as the night went on which made it challenging to have a business meeting.

We went to Bowdies for our 41st wedding anniversary, and had a wonderful experience. Our server, Ryan, and the entire staff provided great service, and made this a very special night. The food was fabulous, great steaks, appetizers, and sides. The chef also made a special dessert for my wife who is gluten free.
