    Bowdies has the best steak ever have tried the fancy steakhouses in Vegas and this blows them out of the water! Staff is great and the food is amazing a little noisy but not bad, but the atmosphere is top notch and food is out of this world.

    Birthday dinner for my spouse who loves a great steak. Beautiful location, parking available, decor and ambiance were breathtaking surprised at the size of the establishment and staff were AMAZING. Food and drink were superb and priced well for each of their quality.

    We we seated in an area which was very cold! Asked the hostess to move to a warmer spot. She told us it was full and couldn’t, but 10 minutes later she sat another 2 top In a better spot with the same waiter as us. They did adjust the heat for us, it got somewhat better, I’m never cold, but it was cold!

    Overall we had a very nice meal and our server did a good job. One item should be reviewed with the chef - the French Onion Soup was highly recommend by our server but it was Luke warm. French Onion Soup needs to be HOT!

    We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Bowdies and were extremely impressed. I had the Kansas City and my wife the Filet Mignon. Both steaks were delicious and well seasoned. We had the buratta as an appetizer and sautéed mushrooms as our side, which were life changing. Dessert was crème brûlée which was a perfect exclamation mark on a wonderful meal. Our server was great and very attentive, working hard to make our night special. Thanks Bowdies for a great evening, will definitely be back soon!

    We went for our anniversary- greeted with champagne ! This was our first time at Bowdies even tho we live here in town . We loved everything about the experience except our table- we faced the kitchen door which was a bit disappointing! But the food and service was fabulous. We will most definitely be back ! The French onion soup was the best I’ve ever had … and the handcrafted cocktails were delicious. Definitely try this place out if you haven’t been .

    Food is always impeccable. But unfortunately our waitress dropped part of our food and had to wait an entire 30 min without our side and basically just sit our chicken and steak alone without our potato side. Waitress seemed a little off so for her to drop the food tray, didn’t surprise me. Hopefully next time we go in it isn’t like this, but steak was great and the atmosphere is lovely.

    We arrived a few minutes early and were sat right away. Our waitress was Elaine, and she did a great job. Very personable and polite. Our food came out in a timely manner and cooked perfectly. We both ordered fillets, cooked mid-rare and mid. Came out perfect!!! I was expecting to pay a little more but our bill was less than I thought, even with a few drinks between the 2 of us. Would highly recommend.

    Third time here, great experience each time. Accommodated my seating request off the bat, and great service followed. The seafood tower was perfect. They altered some of the dishes fire the kids. The steaks were perfectly cooked. Just a tip top experience overall. Will definitely return and recommend.

    Waited for one full hour to get our food and then my steak wasn’t cooked right. Ordered medium well and it was extremely rare with blood on the knife when I cut in to it. The spinach was cold and the cheese on top wasn’t even melt because it was cold. I basically has potatoes for diner a about 5 bites of a $72 steak.
