Bowdies provided a perfect place to celebrate my best friends birthday.
Our party of three was treated graciously and prompt. Our server Patrick was friendly,polite and polished. We started with a round of cocktails. The drinks were just perfect to start our celebration. Than we shared Seared Scallops as our appetizer
Delicious. Once we all decided on our entrees Patrick, our server added his expertise to explain the preparation off our steaks. The best is yet to come.
Our steaks were PERFECT. Our server told us the plates are hot and be careful. He was correct.
My friends I had invited were totally pleased. We noticed other guests celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and probably date night.
Lansing has a GEM. This is old school fine dining at its best. No where else in Lansing compares. I highly recommend making a reservation. It’s the only way to travel. Plan ahead. I hope this review helps you with your choice destination for the absolute world class experience in Lansing dining. Thank you, Bowdies for creating a memorable perfect celebration. JCE

Outstanding, excellent service! The salmon and chicken we had were very well prepared and delicious. The sides that came with the meal were mediocre, and the desserts were okay. When we ate there a prior time we had their steak, and that was amazing! Truffle fries were really good! Expensive beef, but always a great experience!

The food was great and our server was really nice! The drinks were good but honestly nothing too crazy, and the table we sat at was kinda close to the others around us which I didn’t love. Our table especially was right by the door so every time someone walked in/out there was a cold draft.

We came in NYE and Bowdies knocked it out of the park. Our server Kevin was outstanding. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I am non-drinker. Kevin went above and beyond by offering me a mock tail. The drink he crafted was outstanding. All of our food was beyond amazing. My significant other is still raving about the scallops and she is not a fan of seafood. Thank you again for making our evening a memorable one. 5/5 stars does not do the Bowdies experience justice. 6/5.

We enjoyed a wonderful New Year’s Eve dinner with friends. The ambiance was festive and the service was impeccable. This has been a highlight in Lansing restaurant hospitality. We enjoyed delectable steaks with sides of mushrooms, Brussels and truffle fries. We started with tantalizing apps of seared scallops and warm goat cheese, followed by shrimp bisque and a grilled Caesar salad, which were delicious starters to our full meal. We brought our own wine, which they gladly accommodated with a modest corkage fee. Overall, it was one of our most favorite new year dinners. Make your reservations now for next year!

You will not find a better meal anywhere close. Beats any chain chop house by a long shot. The food is outstanding and so is the service. Great attention to detail, all around the best dining experience I’ve had all year.

The steaks were exceptionally tender and flavorful. We couldn’t stop eating the Brussel sprouts and may get two orders next time!
The wait staff was extremely welcoming, friendly and efficient but did not interfere.
This will be the restaurant we always choose for our special occasions.

The staff was kind and knowledgeable with the drink and food menu. Extremely helpful and loved that they offered to help cut our steaks.

Our meal was out of this world; the steak melted in our mouths and our sides followed closely behind.

Bowdie’s backs up it’s name, it’s steak claim, and it’s prices; a treat that I’m happy to have had come to Lansing!

Top notch

We loved spending our anniversary together at Bowdies!!! The filet was a perfect medium rare, the potato au gratin was cheesy and delicious, and the service was out of this world! It’s awesome to see a staff that works together so well, and they make it seem effortless. Thank you Bowdies for an amazing night out, we will be back soon!!!
