Good food and fun with modern bistro decor

Howard's is Englewood's hometown restaurant. Visited here for a late lunch with a friend for soup and salad bar. The vegetable beef soup was tasty, and the salad bar is unbelievable with a wide variety of salad ingredients as well as prepared salads. Fresh iced tea and warm friendly service made... read more

Since opening at their new location, these folks have raised the bar in our "little bit of paradise", providing prompt service, great food and smiles! The salad bar is a meal in itself and the daily specials are awesome! We stop in for lunch whenever possible as well and the lunch selection is awesome as well! Our server Katelyn was... More

Just went to the new Howards and loved it. Lots of seating so didn't have a wait. Fun bar area with separate bar menu. Prices reasonable and food was great. Had fish and chips with great batter on the fish. Also LOVED the Sangria! New fav!

We hadn't planned on adding the salad bar to our dinner but one look and we were hooked. What a great assortment of salads. Can't think of anything that was missing. And our dinner was delicious, too and the portions were generous. Those sweet potato fries are scrumptious. We just moved here and plan to frequent Howard's on a regular... More
