    Bowdies is absolutely delicious!! My steak came out exactly how I asked (med rare / charred) and honestly the best steak I’ve ever had. My wife loved the fish feature and the service was A+.

    We had the most incredible experience here for a birthday celebration. The accommodations that were made from the time we asked for a reservation change to when we paid our bill was nothing short of incredible. Our server Evan was fantastic. The sommelier Heather was amazing as well. Food was out of this world. 11/10 recommend coming here.

    We happened upon Bowdies on our last night in Grand Rapids while on our mini honeymoon. The waiter Amanuel went above and beyond the entire night! We both left beyond in love with the entire experience and will be going back for our anniversary! There really are no words to describe how absolutely wonderful this place was!

    Always an incredible night out. Not only is the food incredible- go for the steaks but try everything else at some point- the service from everyone on staff is exceptional. Perfect for any occasion from a romantic twosome to a larger group dinner. Elaine is an amazing “host/server” and her support staff are the best in GR. No need to ask for anything- the entire staff is on the spot-super attentive but unobtrusive.

    We had a 8:15 OpenTable reservation, and we were not seated for over an hour, so iam not sure why I bothered with making a reservation? It was my birthday, and an hour wait didn’t set the meal up for success. We didn’t get our food until close to 10pm. It was loud and crowded, but a depressing atmosphere, honestly. I reached out to them about our experience and nobody got back with us. The steaks were nice, should be for the price, but the salads were over dressed and the potatoes were just okay. We didn’t finish them. That was our first time and I wouldn’t go again.

    We enjoyed great service, however it was difficult to have a conversation--very loud here. Ordered appetizers, 2 bottles of wine, salad, soup, entrees, and dessert. My ribeye was just so-so. The soup was forgotten so when we asked about it, the server (embarassed) offered dessert as an apology. This obviously added a bit of time to our evening. While finishing our desserts and wine, the manager came to let us know they were very busy and another party was waiting for our table. We were all a bit shocked and disappointed at that. Not the experience we expected.

    We really enjoy the Grand Rapids Bowdies although we live in Lansing. We like the bigger space that Grand Rapids offers. This time the food was not quite up to par. The mushrooms seemed over cooked and there was hardly any sauce on the au gratin potatoes. The steaks were perfect and we had an excellent waiter! We had 6:00 reservations- but we arrive at 5:15 and they were very nice to seat us early! We appreciated that!

    Met a couple that we treated and they had never been there. Our drinks were great. I had the French 75 and my husband had a draft beer, followed by wine with dinner. The Cowboy steak was delicious. We had the scalloped potatoes and green beens as the side. We will be back. I think our friends will too..

    We had the French Onion soup the first time we were there (about a year ago) and never had better. This time, it tasted like beef broth and had hardly any cheese on the top. My husband still ate it but hope the next time will be like the original. We verbally, great food!

    I am a frequent goer of nice steakhouses. The lighting was too dark for my taste, noise level was too loud for a place of this caliber. Service was not bad but not great. My Bone in filet at medium rare still had a pulse. The flavor was mediocre, and tenderness not great. Our desert was said to have 5 pieces so I ordered 2 for the group that we had. The portions were actually way more than the 5 pieces. Which is usually good, but one order would have been more than enough. And the desert took nearly 30 min to arrive. For a $500 meal, it left me underwhelmed this time.
