    Fantastic food and service! Their steaks are the best we’ve had anywhere. Cocktails and dessert were delicious too. We went to Bowdie’s because our usual place was closed for renovations. So glad we did! It’s now our new favorite!

    Definitely our go-to steakhouse on Hilton Head. Have been here several times with different servers and they have all been excellent. That speaks highly of the training they must go through. Of course, the food speaks for itself and is always great!

    We were in town for only three nights and ended up eating at Bowdies every night… Jordan, our server, did an amazing job. Our steaks were cooked to temp, the shrimp cocktail sauce was soooo good, and the rest of our food was excellent. We look forward to dining at Bowdies every time we come to visit. See you soon!

    For the money expected more over $430 for 3 people. Would have preferred warm bread to what was served a personal preference. Had ribeye for 2 but after cutting bone hard to believe had more than 10-11 ounces of meat. Biggest disappointment meat came on one plate and he cut off bone and divided. I got plate it came on which had the bone and all juices from steak, plate was a mess. Will be some time before returning although steak was very good and cooked right.

    Bowdies is easy to get to with plenty of parking. The restaurant is more upscale than the typical island restaurant. The food and service are excellent and will not disappoint. The prices of steaks are on the high end, but the quality makes it worth it.

    The staff at the front door was very chatty. The bartenders as well we were there early in the evening but at such a nice establishment no excuse for that. The host were also on there phone with the manager showing photos and such. The first thing you see is the front door. I think that should be done in the kitchen not the front door. The restaurant is very very nice and food is too just wish the staff treated it as so. Our server was very good on the other hand.

    Beautiful venue and excellent service. Appetizers and dessert were great. However, my old fashioned looked and tasted watered down. The risotto was served cold (though immediately corrected.) Our steak, while exactly medium rare, was a little mushy as if left in a sous vide water bath too long.

    We dined during chamber week and the specialty menu to share. It was fabulous. They had to substitute the buratta with steak tar tar but it was very good. The filet was perfectly cooked and plenty of shareable side of Brussels sprouts. Dessert was Carrot cake and was yummy.

    Bowdies is known to be one of Hilton Head’s most expensive restaurants so trying it during restaurant week seemed to be a good choice. Four of us were seated at 5pm and the server explained that anything & everything chosen from the restaurant week menu had to be SPLIT!!! The menu for Bowdies week NEVER stated all choices needed to be split. My husband and I have very different tastes & we had to decide what we could share that we both would enjoy. Food was good but not my choice! Disappointed in their advertising and VERY surprised at the price for 1/2 the menu.

    We were really looking forward to our visit based on reviews but we were underwhelmed. There are better restaurants for better prices on the island. The steaks were just ok. Sides were decent but also a bit overpriced. Service was really good but the other disappointing part was the noise level. It is very open and loud.

    We went for Restaurant Week. The details on the Chamber Website were in error - did not state that all corses were ‘shared’. Wasn’t an issue as they were sizable except for the entre- split a filet? The steak was very tender and prepared to our request but small. The cheese starter was a lump of soggy mush with stale bread that was too hard to eat. No other bread was served. Caesar’s salad was swimming in dressing and did not include our requested anchovies. Veggies were good but only room temp. Limited wine by glass list. Server was very good but hostess was less than gracious. We were a party of 8 seated at a round table designed for 6. Room was SOOO dark we all had to use our flashlight apps to read the menu and the bill. This was our first visit and we won’t be back. Better options on the island given the price.
