    Amazing night! Took my family to dinner last night and everything was spot on. We started with cocktails at the well appointed bar and chatted with Casey who carefully crafted our magnificent cocktails. Mel was our server for the evening and she was so attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine. She truly is a well seasoned professional. I will ask for her every time that we are in. We plan on making Bowdies Chophouse a monthly event.

    Second time dining here and still loving it! The staff is super friendly and accommodating and the steaks are fantastic. The lobster Mac and cheese is a must. Portions are very large, so split a salad and sides serve four people with leftovers. The bar and dining room are very pretty and the tables are spaced far enough apart so that the noise level is good for table conversation. Don’t overlook this gem tucked into the building behind the Palmetto Bay Publix.

    From the minute we walked in the door the vibe was lively and cozy. Sit at a booth or the bar or a table which is a bit quieter. Manager stopped by to check on our meal. Great menu.

    Second visit to Bowdies Cophouse. Anniversary dinner. Service was absolutely perfect and the food is great. The cocktail selection was very good and when you receive your drink its a very honest pour ! Love this place.

    Service was fantastic. Cocktails were amazing. Meat was not good. Four out of the five of us ordered the Kansas City Steak. The KC steaks were tough, chewy, and not very tasty. The person who ordered the filet loved the steak. I was very disappointed. Sides were okay but nothing special. The week before, I went to Chophouse 119 and was blown away so this was a let down.

    My wife and I have lived on the island for seven years. Bowdie’s is now the best restaurant on the island. No other restaurant on the island even comes close. Nothing else left to add to that.

    We were blown away. A true Chophouse. Absolutely a wonderful meal from start to finish. We had great cocktails, the Tomahawk and a wonderful wine. I hope they don't change a thing. Not to big and very well decorated. Very relaxing. Do NOT skip the Brussels and Pork Belly side.

    Very good overall experience. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. Our only, minor issue, was the table-side serving of our steak. We ordered the Kansas City Bone-In steak to share. The responsibility was given to a trainee to do the work, which took longer than it should have. We understand the need for on-the-job training, but it seemed this person could have done more work prior to being set free at our table. Otherwise, we enjoyed the experience with our friends and plan on returning.

    Loved almost everything about it except the way they charge extra for gravy or toppings on your steak. That could have just been added into the price of the steak. Great cocktails, excellent pours. Service was wonderful and everything was cooked perfectly.

    Finally!!! A real Steak House in Hilton Head. If you're a Capital Grill or a Ruth's Chris or even a Morton's Fan then come on over and meet the New Kid on the Block. Hilton Head has been in need of a higher quality establishment for a long time and now we have it. I for one want quality and I'm not afraid to pay for it. I also want to have a selection of higher end Wine, Tequilas and Harder Liquors. Well they have it all and in spades. Because it was our first time, we decided to try multiple items. Seared Scallops...a hit followed by a Wedge Salad, blue cheese but what made that salad pop was the Candied Lardons (Pork belly or fatty bacon). That salad was over the top. We finished our meal with Cowboy Ribeye. Seasoned and cooked to perfection. It went well with the Darioush Signature Cab. Definitely my "Go-To" new location!

    Eric was a server and it was a great experience. The food was perfect. He is personable and hard-working. Everyone there is absolutely phenomenal. We will definitely be returning.!!! At first we were going to sit at the hightop. We didn't like it and wanted to. I really enjoy dinner so we were going to just reschedule for a different time. They were able to work some stuff out and we're able to get us in even though the night was super busy everybody was extremely helpful and super nice.

    The soups were good, the salad and side dishes were huge (although the Brussels and Belly was over cooked and kind of melded together). My steak was OK, not real good much less great, just OK. The place was packed (good indicator) and the service was very good

    This was out first trip to Bowdies and we were not disappointed. Aydin, our server was exceptional. She knew her stuff and explained it succinctly. We started out with a small shellfish 2 tiered dish as an appetizer and it was enough for 3 people. The wine list was excellent. I had a Cowboy Ribeye that my wife and I shared. It was cooked to perfection, medium rare, and sliced for us to share. Our friend had the filet mignon and again cooked to perfection. The meat was extremely tender and probably the best steaks we have yet to have, including Ruths Chris and other known steakhouses in NYC. The manager, Nick, came over and talked with us extensively. We will be back.
