We've been meaning to get over to Bowman's for a while, and finally did in July with our daughter and her husband. Love the live music there! And the food was fabulous and we probably didn't expect that. We are part-time residents in the area...More

We meet a few friends and had a wonderful dinner. Good service and not overly priced. If your a local like us or from out of town worth a try. Diffidently need reservations on a weekend.

The service is always good. The food is a couple of steps up from very good bar food. I love the fish, burgers and steaks here. However, this time I had the meatloaf. It was dry with too much thick gravy on top. I should...More

Tonight we made a reservation and were seated immediately. From our first taste of the ricotta appetizer, we knew this place was special. By the first bite of the grilled peach salad our taste buds were singing. Then the entrees arrived and the meal reached...More

We dined here on the recommendation of our Innkeeper. The table in the bar area allowed us to enjoy an evening of great music. Although there are many great menu options, we did not "test" the kitchen. Our hamburgers were cooked perfectly and delicious.

I like the pork sandwich and the reuben. Bowman's salad, onion soup, and all starters are good bets too!

Went to listen to music as well as dine. Music the first night a little too theatrical for my preference but the next night was fantastic. Good drinks— not stingy on the alcohol. Good food. Only recommendation: MUST improve the sound system.

Yes, they have gluten free as do all restaurants. Order a burger and skip the roll. That’s what I do. Have the pork chops. Or the salmon. Or the whipped ricotta. Their salads with a piece of salmon are delicious.
