Food was every good and waitress was fantastic. My wife had mussels marinara with pasta. There were at least 2 dozen mussels. I had the captains platter which was also very good.

This is a gem. We were shown this restaurant by friends. I really liked the salad bar. It has different items than the normal. Great salad choices, pasta salads, everything imaginable. We had seafood and all was done perfectly. The music man on the patio was very good and the platings were pretty. We will definitely eat here again.

There were eight of us in our party. Everyone liked what they ordered. Salad bar was very good. The only issue would be the nasty looking water/ditch in the rear. It's not pleasant to look at when you're eating.

This was a last minute pick by a group of friends and our 4th night staying at the beach. It was a great choice. The food was very good and the service was wonderful. We intend to return so we can try other menu items. A large menu and a really good salad bar. Looking forward to another dinner at... More

Only a few items on the menu for mothers day, didn't like the choices so We got the salad bar. $12.00 all you can eat salad with 2 cups of soup. It was horrible! Nothing was labeled, and everything on there tasted the same. I thought the limit of 2 cups of soup was silly, but it wasn't good soup... More

We had been wanting to try this place, as we have driven by many times. The sign says Salad Bar, which attracted us. So, we stopped. It was very dark and stale smelling. We were seated next to a window overlooking some sort of waterway. Not very picturesque or clean. We almost decided to leave right then, but stayed. The... More

We recently had a very nice lunch at Howard's, so decided to go there for our Easter dinner. Huge mistake! I ordered the ham steak which I was assured was cut from a ham they baked. Wrong, it a ham steak grilled. Not at all like baked ham! Our friend ordered the Prime Rib ($22.00). She requested the end cut... More

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.
