Great surprise after a long trip!

We are recent retirees and made our first trip to Florida to spend the month of March in Englewood. We drove down and got into town late and stumbled across Howard's. As we walked in a patron leaving told us to get the pork chop it was "to die for". We got a little nervous because the dining room... read more

The outside of the building is an eye catcher. Very well done. It is bigger inside than you would have imagined. We had a wonderful Server, her name was Dana. One of the best service experiences we have ever had. She recommended the Pork Shank. We both ordered it. We loved it! Amazing service, I would highly recommend asking for... More

good menu , reasonable prices . Value for money .Locals seem to love it . They eat early when the prices are reduced but the tourists seemed to like dining there as well . The night we were there it was an older crowd .

I will not be making a trip back to this restaurant. My friend had a burger said it was ok. Fries were very good he said. But the burger was nothing special. I ordered a dish that said grilled chicken pieces and it came with a Greek salad. I was disappointed when I got a chicken leg a wing and... More

My first visit to the new venue but it won't be the last. Looks impressive from the outside and even more so inside. The decor is very tasteful and so is the food. Salad bar is excellent and even though it was very busy so was the service. Reservations are a must. New look is a triumph for me.

While visiting family in Florida, we were invited to Howard's for 2 pounds of crab legs (and that includes all you can eat salad bar buffet). The crab was perfect and our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive. We snuck back over there alone a few nights later and it was just as good!! Thank you Howard's! Until next time...

The new location for this restaurant is excellent and the salad bar cannot be ignored. Unusual selections and a chance to try new and surprising salads.

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
