Love the New Location

Been here every time I visit Englewood. The locals love it and it is like a little community of customers that all know each other. Maybe the tourists feel like outsiders, but it is always predictable quality of food and prices. Variety of food changes, but there is always something new and... read more

Been here every time I visit Englewood. The locals love it and it is like a little community of customers that all know each other. Maybe the tourists feel like outsiders, but it is always predictable quality of food and prices. Variety of food changes, but there is always something new and eclectic to try. Great central location as well.... More

Our last night in Englewood Florida and my husband and I decided to go to Howard's. It looked very nice on the outside and we have never been there before. Walked in and the smell wasn't pleasent nor was the hostess. I ordered a berry mojito and it was just average with very little ice. The soup that came with... More

I have reviewed this restaurant a couple times now since they opened at their new location, and have been consistent in my praise for the excellent food and good service. HOWEVER, when in the world are the owners going to put something - anything - on those stark walls in the main dining areas. I am not the only one... More

We decided to try Howard's again this year as they had relocated and modernized. My review last year wasn't very positive. Well, we were pleasantly surprised this year starting out with our server who was excellent. Then came the salad bar which was also great.....many choices. Our entrees were very good, and came out in a timely manner. Another plus... More

Had a great breakfast here. Excellent food and menu. Very clean, modern decor. You can tell a lot about a place by how well they keep their building and grounds- excellent! Will go back tomorrow.

A large group of people in our Gulf View Estates neighborhood regularly gather for dinner. This night there were at least 36 of us. Reservations had been made, of course. We were seated at the exact time we were quoted, and each table had its own server. Drinks were ordered, followed by meals ordered. Staff here did a fabulous job,... More

Howards is at their new location. Have had dinner and breakfast there...but found the food average. Almost impossible to make reservations for after 5PM. I guess it's the $nowbirds causing the reservation delemma...Thank goodness for the $nowbirds!

We met here for a family lunch today. The restaurant looks clean and updated. The bar has the icy bar edge to keep your drink cold. We had a table of 8 and were seated right away. Many had the salad bar -full of variety. Others enjoyed the spinach pie with greek salad. Everyone enjoyed their choices. The restaurant is... More
