Bowdie’s Chophouse Opens Its Doors in East Grand Rapids

September 24, 2019

Bowdie’s Chophouse has announced its third location at Gaslight Village. The steakhouse plans to opens its doors late Fall.

Bowdie’s Chophouse specializes in providing guests with a personalized dining experience. Their array of skillfully prepared meats and cocktails brings the upscale atmosphere to East Grand Rapids.

With locations currently open in Saugatuck and Lansing, Bowdie’s decision to come to East Grand Rapids seemed like the natural next step. “Bowdie’s Chophouse is thrilled to be joining the Gaslight Village & East Grand Rapids community,” says Tyler Bowdish, President of Bowdie’s Chophouse. “We feel Bowdie’s perfectly matches the boutique small town feel that Gaslight Village is already known for, and are beyond excited to bring our talented staff, attentive service, exquisite cuts, and handcrafted cocktails all together to provide a one-of-a-kind experience.”

In addition to the quality food and service offered at other locations, the Gaslight Village store will also offer a private dining section. This will be reserved large groups and events, complete with a pre-fixed menu and personalized service.

Bowdie's Chophouse will occupy the former location of Derby Station, which closed its doors earlier this summer.

Gaslight Village is a vibrant business district in the heart of East Grand Rapids. The area has blossomed into a colorful, community-oriented district offering office and retail space in Grand Rapids. “Bowdie’s Chophouse will be a really special addition to Gaslight Village,” says Scott Wierda, managing partner of CWD Real Estate Investment. “Their commitment to connecting and serving the local community is what has helped them stand out, and we can’t wait to have them here in East Grand Rapids.”
