This restaurant has become one of our favorites due to the excellent, well maintained salad bar and the Wed. and Fri. all-you-can-eat fish fry. The staff is so friendly and the owner and/or managers always make you feel like regulars. We will soon be legal-regulars. In fact, we plan to try other dishes on the huge menu soon.

We are locals who haven't been to Howard's for awhile. We had visitors from NY and decided to take them there for dinner. It wasn't bad but it wasn't the quality I remembered from a couple of years ago.The evening we went there at 7 PM it was not crowded at all. Probably season keeps it afloat. We all had... More

I will preface this review by saying I have never written a review about anyplace we have gone except one other time. But I was so disappointed to spend $50 for a meal that was not what the reviews portrayed. We came here from Ft. Myers while checking out the beach in Englwood. Hubby looked up the reviews... knowing I... More

Absolutely the best full menu restaurant in the Englewood area. Absolutely the best burger in town, ribeyes to die for, and pork shanks that fall off the bone. Soups are very good and the salads live up to their reputation. As for the fresh seafood, WOW!! Ahi tuna atop an Asian salad is my favorite but close behind is the... More

The wife liked the coconut shrimp so much that she ordered 2 days in a row. My sister said the lamb chops were the best she ever had. I had a chicken special which was very tasty and a steak dinner which was excellent. Food portions are large for the price. Alcoholic drinks are 2 for 1 price at happy... More

Good food, Could use a remodel. Waitresses need to be a little more enthusiastic about their restaurant and food. Salad bar needs a boost!

The food was good the salad bar is huge. Their "half sandwich is bigger than "Full sandwiches", other places. The hostess and the waitress where very happy to have us as customers today. Over all a very pleasant lunch. The business is planning to move next month, to N. Indiana, just up the street a mile or so .

We happened upon Howard’s while sightseeing during our stay at Palm Island Resort in nearby Cape Haze. It was all-you-can-eat fish night, so that is what we all ordered. The farm-raised Basa (similar to cod) was freshly made with a panko coating and sweet potato fries appeared to be made from fresh. Dinner included bread and one trip to the... More
