Have been going to Howard’s for 17 years and never a disappointment.
The food and service was excellent.
Excellent Fried Lobster, flounder, lobster bisque and clams scampi.
Wonderful service and food lobster tails were perfect
Howard’s is iconic to LBI. The best of everything, in every category.
Howard's is our favorite restaurant. Wonderful food and great service. Highly recommend.
Food always good - I felt it was pricier than it used to be. Broiled seafood platter and lobster bisque were very good - our waitress zoe was excellent - very attentive and sweet
I was disappointed with the crab cake however the fried lobster was excellent. Coleslaw was also very good. Our server, Zoe, was very friendly and helpful.
Been going to Howard’s every Fall on our annual vacation, ordering the fried lobster. This year the prices were up and the quality fell below acceptable. For over $48 entree, the salad was substandard, the melted butter, when finally served, was in a plastic container with lid. So tacky! The lobster didn’t taste as good as it did in the past. Very disappointed as Howard’s was always on the top of our “go to” list every year. I have another reservation for this week which I will cancel. Can’t keep blaming COVID for restaurant issues.
We had a delightful meal. The soups were so tasty. Our meals were delicious with very generous portions. It is nice that you can take advantage of the BYOB policy since the prices are not cheap. The only negative was that our group of 4 was seated right next to a very large group of about 12 and it was extremely noisy. Once they left it was much more pleasant.
Service great even though they were super busy. Oysters great. Had broiled seafood combo. .. not so good. Shrimp overcooked. Scallops, 4 small, were good. Flounder was blah and you get a sliver of it. Crab cake ok. Kitchen didn't put much effort into making the dish. Expensive for what you get.
Great service. Delicious food!
Server was professional and catered to our requests. The food was tasty and plentiful.
Wonderful food! Overall a great dining experience.
This was our first time to Howard’s. Since Howard’s is known for French fried lobster, our server recommended it to share as an appetizer and it was delicious. The scallops were good and a decent sized portion. We will definitely return.
The food was excellent as usual but the price of the food is higher than at comparable restaurants.
Chicken Breast was dry. Restaurant alittle more pricey. No more early bird pricing?
French Fried Lobster tail - a must!!
Excellent food and service
Nice place, good food
Server was very rushed. Seemed annoyed when we asked to refill our waters. One of us had the swordfish special. Should have sent back but we were with guests. The swordfish was paper thin…like a piece of sliced lunchmeat. Absolutely terrible. Swordfish is usually cut 1/2” thick…this was thinner than a deli sliced piece of ham
On vacation love eating at Howard’s.
Really like that Howard's takes reservations this year. Takes the mystery out of "will we be able to get a table? and how long will we have to wait?"
Seated promptly, server attentive, but not hovering. Shared an appetizer with other couple, calamari marinara. Everyone enjoyed their dinners, although the guys thought their swordfish was a little thin. Not rushed through dinner, nice relaxing evening. During the season, the noise level may be a little high, but on this Labor Day evening, it was quiet.
The blackened swordfish was simply delicious. Salad fresh and crisp. Raw clams and oysters were outstanding. Bread was warm and the piece of French fried lobster made you want to order more of it. Highly recommend this restaurant and wish there was one in manhattan
One of the best restaurants on LBI!
Never disappointed, have been coming here for 20 plus years!!!
Always a delicious meal with top notch service! I’m so glad they started accepting reservations this year!
Food and variety are excellent. Wait staff friendly and attentive.
meals for my GF and me literally tasted great. I had the salmon and she had flounder stuffed with crab meat. I come as many times as I can during the summer. There a ton of restaurants on LBI but I choose Howard's. When something works, you stick with it.
Food was very bland, not that great. Was hoping for better given the reviews and recommendations from others.
Best seafood restaurant on all of LBI. The food is fresh, perfectly prepared and pleasantly presented. Service was friendly, professional and gracious. View is great - you can see the bay or marina inlet from most tables. Value is fantastic. Best of all - it is the best french fired lobster tail in NJ!
Always our go to place with the whole family. BYOB is great
Food was very enjoyable as well as our waitress who expedited our food but not overly rushed
Too Expensive! Prices have risen dramatically....
Howard's is a great restaurant. It is a family favorite and we go there as often as we can.
Howard’s is consistently excellent from the welcoming hostess throughout the serving staff. The calamari with a Thai chili sauce appetizer was on the daily special menu and presented well. The French Fried Lobster is always excellent and is their signature dish. Well worth a visit.
howards was outstanding vas usual....a little loud
Classic yet current. This restaurant never fails to make delicious food and allows us to enjoy a wonderful family night together. We depend on Howard’s to continue the legacy of great food with amazing service. Our family has been going there for over 40 years, we just love it.
Friendly prompt service. Did not wait long for our meal. Would return.
Prices went up and unfortunately quality went down… clam chowder is still the best on the island and Alex - my waiter was great!
French fried lobster did not disappoint as usually. Best on the Island
