Always looking for a new dining experience when friends visit from the north? This is one place you can count on as being special. We were greeted promptly and shown to our reserved table. A large variety of luncheon selections were available. I chose the stuffed basa..it was outstanding. Friendly waitstaff and comfortable surroundings will guarantee our return.

I was a little disappointed in the menu choices for the early bird specials, but the real benefit were the 2-for-1 drinks! Our service was great; very friendly. Reservation for 9, and we were seated immediately. Good salad bar.

I really enjoyed my visit here. I had the Spaghetti and meatballs with meat sauce..delicious! Probably the best spaghetti I've ever had. The only thing I can think of for improvement would be to expand the Salad Bar with more choices. That aside, I loved the food and the waitstaff. I will definitely dine here again.

The booths are very small and it is quite dark inside. The salad bar doesn't have a lot of components for salad, just made up salads. The crab sandwich and stuffed haddock were good, but that beautiful crab was on a greasy toasted hamburger bun, too bad. The clam chowder was excellent.

We had lunch at Howards and although disappointed by the water view had an excellent lunch. Chicken salad and steak sandwich were grea, servings generous, and sweet potatoes fries were some of the best we have had. Service was good and restaurant including restroom were clean. Great value for the money.

I love to go to Howards for their salad bar, but this is not the only reason to go there. There food is great too. My husband and I had the leg of lamb and it was delicious. The tomato sauce was prepared the Greek way just the way we like it. They have a variety of foods and there... More

Spent St Paddy's evening at Howard's. Corned beef was great and those that ordered of the menu said the same. great variety and service was friendly and attentive even though they were packed. They do try to move you along a little…..but you can slow them down if you want a more leisurely meal. Their salad bar was a nice... More
