    Went here for my Birthday. Everything was perfect didn’t even have to send my steak back(well done ) the 1st time not dry at all. The potatoes were delicious I had a margarita that was strong but good. Our server was very attentive. The Birthday desert was a delight. Thank you for making my Birthday dinner amazing ❣️

    The filet mignon was cooked to a medium rare perfection. The mushrooms just enhance the flavor of the steak. Enjoyed the atmosphere, and the service from Casandra was very attentive, and she had great personality. I don't have much luck finding a cocktail from their bar that I enjoy. Next time I'm going to try a glass of wine .

    Honestly, worst experience we have had in a long time as far as quality of food and lack of care. To start off, one table was so obnoxious we couldn't even hear each other talking. Understanding its not the staffs fault we tried to make the best of it. Appetizers and salads came. My caesar salad was so saturated in dressing it wasn't even realistic. I know to go for steaks, so I didn't say anything. I ordered a drink and asked for no ginger. After 20 mins of it not coming I reminded the server, and he brought it out. I then tried it, and could clearly taste ginger syrup. Told my waiter, he said "It shouldn't have any" I said I think they skipped the ginger beer but kept the ginger syrup. He said sorry. Did not offer to remake, another drink, nothing. Then the steaks came. My "medium plus" cowboy ribeye was GRAY and DRY. Someone as my table ordered the same steak medium, and it was bloody, another person ordered a filet medium plus and it was nice and pink throughout. When I brought it to my waiters attention he said "I see some pink" and walked away. I sat and had 2 bites. A manager came around and asked and I said I wasn't eating mine. They asked what was wrong, I showed her. No no steak, and I got charge for it. We frequent steakhouses downtown, we used to be big bowdies fan, but this is the 3rd time in a row and paying for a $72 gray, dry, steak and leaving hungry is not acceptable to me.

    Grand Rapids Top Place for a perfect steak! They never fail to impress with their exceptional tastes. Listening to Frank Sinatra, enjoying a drink, eating my steak, dimmed lighting, is a definition of a perfect night… drinks took a little long, at first, but it’s not a big deal when the food and ambience is top tier.

    I've visited Bowdies twice and the first time was INCREDIBLE. The most recent (second) time, my husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. The food was great but our server was very inattentive and ended up completely forgetting about us at the end of the meal (which was long after the dinner rush had left). We wanted to get dessert but it took so long for him to eventually come back that we just asked for the check (because we didn't want him to forget about us again). It was such an expensive meal to have subpar service and we didn't feel like it was worth it. If your odds are 50/50 of getting good service, I would find somewhere else to go.

    Dine here often and never had an issue with showing photo of ID for drinks until tonight, quite disappointed to start a gathering that way. Anyway, appetizers and side dishes were good, as usual. The steaks we received were rather under-seasoned.

    I want to start out with this is a very nice place in a very nice area. we had excellent service, and the food was good not great . I don’t understand why people rate it that high we have had much better food at Ruth’s Chris. The drinks are excellent, but pricey. The steaks are good and sides limited . Desserts are limited had the crème brûlée. It was not good at all. It was hard as a rock and cold on the inside. The waitress did take it off the bill and that was much appreciated.Also, we were seated in a corner by the window and I felt like I was sitting outside. It was so cold! I did want my husband to tip the waitress well because she was very accommodating…
