Howard's has moved to a new location in Englewood. Food is really good, plus nice salad bar. But, they have some kinks to iron out. I'm sure they will. Service was so slow that several patrons just walked out. Nice building. Seating is very tight, but sure they will work this out. Good luck Howard's. I'll be back.

For the last 6 months, the NEW Howard's restaurant has been under construction and a point of conversation among those of us who like to dine around. We watched them raise the roof of the old Sassy Snapper, rebuild the walls, install new windows and finally landscape the place. I think it's fair to say visually, this is certainly one... More

Went to pre-opening longing for my usual eggplant parm. Was not available that night so I had chicken parm. How disappointing! There was a goulash meat type sauce on the spaghetti - not at all appatizing. I also didn't think the salad bar was up to par. Food quality down - prices up - not a good equation.

Stopped in for dinner with friends. Had steamed clams and salad, along with the fish sampler. Everything was good, I especially liked the salad bar selection - there was plenty to select from and everything was fresh and tasty. Dont get me wrong, its not a huge salad bar, but they had everything I like and I enjoyed my 3... More

The fish n chips is awesome! The salads are fresh, delicious and different. The staff is nice. The restaurant is clean. I make a point to drive there once in awhile, I live 30 miles away.

Several days a week they have a 2 lb. plate of crab. This is my favorite. They also have a salad bar that is great. They are building a new location and I'm sure that will make it an even better experience.

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
