Bowman’s is a home away from home. Wonderful hospitality delivered by warm, engaging staff, including the free valet parking team!. The food is consistently delicious whether you crave comfort food or something more innovative. And the beers on tap always offer a mix of tried and true plus new and exciting brews. All in all - Bowman’s is a real gem in Buck’s County.

This was our 10th anniversary dinner and one of our favorite restaurants. Everything was delicious as usual and our server was wonderful. Not just knowledgeable but friendly and engaging as well.

We just wish the lamb would return to the menu!

We absolutely LOVE this place! Although there were a lot of people dining there last night, we never felt the need to yell over someone's voice. The seating and sound barriers are good here. The food is exceptional! I had the Salmon with mashed sweet potatoes and shaved brussels sprouts - so delicious! My husband had the hamburger and said it was fabulous! Waiters and waitresses make sure the food is perfectly hot upon arrival.

What a nice evening! Everything was wonderful- the food, our attentive waitress, and the lovely piano music in the background. My only concern was that the hostess at the front was not wearing a mask-maybe not a big deal, but I thought it would be considerate to wear a mask as we were entering the restaurant.

Great experience overall. The elevated noise level was due to the house band for the night, which was delightful! First time customer and can’t think of a single reason not to go back. Our waitress was attentive and the food arrived in good time. The restaurant have a great atmosphere

We have always had a good meal & good drinks @ Bowman's Tavern. They still don't have all of our favorites , but , that is to be expected with all of the supply problems due to the pandemic.

Three people in our group ordered Ruben sandwiches and had the same comments: quality of the sandwich would have benefitted from more sauerkraut, more dressing and leaner meat (too much fat, some gristle).

This was, I think, my third visit to Bowman's. I wasn't as blown away as I was the first two visits, but I enjoyed my meal. There were four of us and the others also liked what they ordered. I started with the fried oysters, which I'd tried before. They were just as plump and delicious, but this time I didn't really care for the aioli in which they sat. It must be just me, because my spouse liked it very much. My spouse also enjoyed the mussels, which were sweet and fresh, while I had a better-than-most bratwurst sandwich. Usually I find bratwurst too full of fat pieces and too highly seasoned. This one was perfect. One of my friends had the creamy ricotta appetizer, which I tasted and judged to be as tasty as I remembered.

The ambience of the room was quite pleasant, and our server was professional and helpful. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Excellent service and food.
Loved the atmosphere and live music was perfect.
BUT party of 4 was was looking forward to desert after dinner and all they had was ice cream and pudding. The waiter explained that they are closed Mondays and Tuesdays so they don't make any more for Sunday night patrons. I completely understand the reason but disagree that they can't have at least some other dessert options to please their Sunday night customers.
We will be back!!

Wonderful Sunday Brunch~started with mimosas and then eggs Benedict. My husband and steak and eggs and said his meal was wonderful.
Since it was Sunday we enjoyed some music for the Blues Brunch. Service is always great and a warm and friendly vibe.

Terrific Sunday brunch! Delicious and flavorful Eggs Benedict and home fries were perfectly seasoned. Spouse enjoyed a very generous cheesesteak and fries. Had to take half home! And the live blues-y guitar/bass / harmonica duo set a very relaxing mood. Waitress was charming and loved to share what was good on the menu. Service was first-rate. Valet parking was effortless. Will go again!

Two at our table had the steak special. Asked for medium and medium well.
Both were rare on inside.
Back to the kitchen
Returned slightly more cooked but rare again.
Back again
Third time they are around the outside and left majority of rare steak on plate.
Very disappointed

We went for our 21sr wedding anniversary. We had a reservation but ended up sitting at the bar instead. We enjoyed the piano and singing. Wonderful people there. Bartenders and servers were very attentive. The food was amazing. We had a great time! Definitely would recommend it for any special occasion or just a great hangout!!

Great place! The jazz trio was so good. Generous portions of food. knowledgeable wait service. quick valet personnel. Maybe the lighting over the table was a tad to bright or the lamp could have been lowered a couple of inches.
