My husband, son and I always want to find the "local" atmosphere when we visit a city for a horse show. Searching the reviews about local restaurants in Aiken, we decided to go down to Laurens street and see the many restaurants that were listed and decide on one. We liked the atmosphere of the Bowery, sat at the bar and had a cocktail, (great pinot grigio), looked at the menu and decided to stay because the menu sounded great. Unfortunately the chef at this restaurant is either too busy OR just does not know how to cook. I only say this because the ingredients were all there that were listed on the menu and COULD have been delicious. I had the Chicken Olivia, dry chicken breast with some sort of sauce,it was yellow and dried onto the overly crusted tasteless chicken. Over cooked zucchini mixed vegetables, soggy, tasteless, served with fried lobster bites (that I adore in Florida) but were, cold, over breaded and not sure what was inside them. My son had steak Gregory, overcooked with the grilled red potatoes that were cold, too large and bland, it was served with another awful sauce of some sort that just hung on the meat in a lump. My husband had the grilled steak that again was way over cooked, looked terrible on the plate and was "OK" was this meat and potatoes only eater. Great atmosphere, but really really bad food!!!! I suggest they either find a new chef, or send this one to culinary school somewhere.

My wife and I absolutely love "The Bowery." We know the owner very well, and he is one of favorite people in the Aiken area. The food is spectacular, and the deserts are to die for. I personally recommend the Ribeye Gerard topped off with a piece of the Kentucky Derby Pie. I can't wait to get back to Aiken so I can enjoy the cuisine and the atmosphere. I would recommend this place to anyone.
The Bowery has a classy atmosphere, yet you are at home in casual attire. It is just a great place to take a group of friends with its inviting atmosphere.
