Bowman's has great fried seafood. We ordered a couple of the combo platters to share. When you don't feel like changing clothes to go out to eat, just get it delivered.

Best fried shrimp and deviled crab! The seafood platters are the best. Even at lunch they give you so much. I don't think it's kid friendly - this is just for seafood lovers! Don't get appetizers - not good. Hush puppies will fill u before...More

Stopped here for the first time, and had a filling lunch in a basic local place very suitable for families. With the exception of the fried clam strips that were way overcooked, the fried fish and oysters were ok. The hushpuppies were excellent.

I am not a seafood person, but my parents love fried seafood--if that's what you like, this is your place! Very reasonably priced too. Great sweet tea and hush puppies! Hamburger steak was enormous.

I visited Bowman's on April 30th. I was craving typical Southern fried seafood, and Bowman's delivered! This was my first visit but it won't be the last! The decor is simple, small in size, and clean. The food is typical fried seafood with French fries,...More

The atmosphere is classic seafood restaurant decor, and the fare is classic Southern seafood. They had no trouble seating and serving our group of five quickly and cheerfully.
