Service was outstanding as usual. Food was good but was underwhelmed with the Tomahawk steak we ordered. We’ve ordered several others and this was one we won’t be ordering again. Very fatty and the flavor was just ok.
Everything else was top notch and would highly recommend anyone looking for a great place to wind down and enjoy a great meal. We will definitely be back again once we can dine out.

Service was great. Shrimp Bisque was good, brussel sprouts (over-cooked and tasteless, crab cakes (did not taste like crab at all....very fishy tasting and an off taste) and goat cheese (very sweet and whole almonds...hard to eat and too sweet).

Steak was excellent, service was very attentive and friendly. Brussels and belly side was a little on the sweet side, would have liked to have been warned about it but when we explained why we weren't eating it they offered to comp it which was very generous.

Bowdie’s was a great restaurant to spend our first anniversary. They take safety precautions very seriously and the food and service was amazing. Their Tom Collins was so refreshing, bone marrow great, filet mignon and bone in mignon were cooked to perfection, and the lobster Mac came with an entire lobster tail that they removed and cut at the table. Creme brûlée for dessert was a fantastic ending. Highly recommend!!

Always a great experience in every aspect. Before Bowdie's opened in Lansing a couple years ago, we used to drive to Detroit or Grand Rapids when we wanted a special dinner date but now we can just drive 15 minutes to downtown Lansing for a top notch fine dining experience.

Everything was great. From service to food to the specialty drinks we ordered. we had no complaints. Employees were all amazing as well. Would return just because of the service we received. Steaks were great and the carrot cake was one of the best I’ve had.
