    Our first time here and it was amazing! The service was great and this was probably the best filet I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to go back.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bowdies. The food was amazing. We would definitely recommend the brussel sprouts!!! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and our wait staff was completely attentive. What a great way to celebrate our 50th!

    Great service, the server assistant was great. Can’t remember his name though. Young man, blonde hair. Server was also good and knowledgeable. Got the tomahawk and lobster tail, my girlfriend was blown away by the whole thing. Thank you for a lovely night.

    The food is unique and fantastic. There is plenty of room to try something new or stick with familiar items. The service was above and beyond. The environment is incredibly comfortable. If you want to treat yourself in Lansing, this is the place to go. Of course, the prices are quite high, but you won't leave hungry ans you will more than get your money's worth.

    My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day at Bowdies Chophouse. Food was delicious and steaks were perfectly prepared. The service was excellent. I would recommend Bowdies to whoever is celebrating a special occasion. Please note that it is expensive but the experience was worth it😀😋

    All of the food and drinks were phenomenal!!!!! Best food I’ve had in a very long time. It was my girlfriend’s birthday and she said “The best birthday dinner ever”. We even received a complimentary brownie dessert for her birthday. The service was very attentive and helpful. We will definitely return, probably a birthday tradition from here on out.

    Bowdies is a fabulous restaurant, the food is amazing and the staff is always so great. They go above and beyond in service and they always make you feel like you are their only customer. It is expensive so we only go on special occasions but it is well worth the money spent.

    Very nice experience. The bill can get away from you if you're not paying attention, but Bowdie's is not where you go if you're worried about the tab. Welcoming mood, professional staff, excellent food. The brown butter scallops were the best I have ever had period. Perfect sear, full of flavor. The brussels sprouts and pork belly were a great complement. The potatoes au gratin were well-executed and presented but did not knock me over, just a personal preference. But you're not here for the sides, you're here for the steak. Bowdie's delivers. Both the bone-in filet and the cowboy ribeye were sizzling hot, well seared, and a delight to take down. We anticipated leftovers; there were none. Last, dessert: creme brulee and tiramisu, both wonderful finishes to a substantial meal. Thick crystalized crust on the brulee gave way to a quick tap with the spoon, and the tiramisu melts in your mouth. While the price tag keeps it from being a regular, it is definitely a place to go in small groups on special occasions.

    This was one of the best meals we had in 2023. I started with the french onion soup while my husband had the caesar salad. Then I had the bone in ribeye and it was melt in your mouth!!! The truffle fries were excellent as well!!! 12/10 recommend. Service was impeccable!!!

    I loved the ambiance. The service was fast. I did not have a chance to gaze at any of the food before it was quickly cut up ie the lobster. I dined by myself. Do not go there to have private conversations <3. I heard some interesting things. I ordered duck ravioli and lobster mac and cheese and the sauce tasted the same, so I would not do that again. The steak was tender and delicious. The brussel sprouts were also very good.

    My Wife and I's favorite special occasion meal spot. The steaks are, without question, the best in the area by a mile but it's with the other stuff that the place shines. The appetizers are incredible. That Goat cheese in honey is life changing, seriously. Oh and the sides, like the Lobster Mac or Brussel Sprouts, will have you wanting to order a backup plate to take home. The service is top notch too. Yes it's a small place but they sure pack them in there while making you feel like you're their only table there. The only complaint about the place at all is the parking situation. If you can land one of the handful of spots out front you are good but don't bother trying to park in one of their 4 or 5 customer spaces out back unless you have an extremely small vehicle. If that's not going to work then your only other option is paying $10 to park in the huge lot behind that. Even with the parking issue the food and overall experience is so good I just cannot dock even a half a star from my rating, it really is about as close to perfect as you can get.
