Great food, outstanding service. Seated next to the building which was strewn with cobwebs. A good broom would do a world of good there.

Exceptional service, food, and ambiance. Our waiter was very attentive and we never felt rushed. The Filet Mingon was cooked to a perfect medium and was very flavorful. My entire party enjoyed their meal. The drinks were fun strong enough and tasty. Will be back when in the area again.

First time dining at the Bowdie's Grand Rapids location and was floored. While I generally prefer the "small town" feel of the Saugatuck location, GR was very nice as well for its own reasons. However where it stood out was the food and service (Corrin G). Both were superb and made for a wonderful experience. We look forward to returning very soon. Highly recommend.

This place is a joke. Overcooked, over priced, over salted, hotel buffet quality food. Price does not reflect quality.

Wait Staff is not at fault, poor management and kitchen staff are to blame for the missed opportunity this restaurant brings to a city in need of more quality chop houses.

Would not feed my dog this slop.

Asked my wife for a description and she simply said “It was amazing.” The food was incredible and our service was top notch. While it is on the pricier side it was exactly what we could have hoped for as our dinner on our first Anniversary. Very nice romantic setting.

Steak was very good, the rest of the evening was a complete mess.
Our server had 7 tables working at once. Part of charging the prices u do is the service to back it up.
We were left waiting to get acknowledged, drinks, salads, dinner.
All we got was apologies.
Where was the management team.

This was our first visit to Bowdies and it did not disappoint. Reviewing the menu you see large portions and matching prices. Our server said sharing was acceptable and welcomed. We split a 10 oz filet done perfectly and a lobster 🦞 tail which matched our appetites exactly. The shrimp bisque was delicious as a starter and beignets as a finish.

Great food and atmosphere. My buddy and I split the tomahawk rib eye...perfectly cooked. The girls split the snapper, also well done. The service was great. Our waiter "Red" was a pro, great job.

Corrin, the Bar Master was extra attentive to details!!! Fresh cilantro, fresh jalapeno, great, spicy, sweet tequila kick! It was a pleasure to watch her creativity at work to make our experience 110%.

Corrin my server was great - the shrimp bisque perfect (like it a little better than the version served at the Saugatuck location), the Kansas City Strip was delicious. When I left i forgot my hat and they promptly called me so I could come back to get it. The hostess came out side and delivered it "curbside". Thanks Bowdies.
