3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2014 NEW

we had gone to the "old" Howards many times and usually had a very good experience. Went to the "new" Howards, made reservations had to take 4:00 to still get the early bird which stops at 5. Ordered, waited, wrong food came out. The server told up it was ours, but it wasn't. Had to wait amost another 20 minutes.... More

I have been to the "old" Howard's numerous times so I was quite pleased to find out that their new location was even closer to my home. The outside of the building is quite attractive and inviting. The inside is very modern but needs some wall hangings to soften it up. It reminds me of a cafeteria design rather than... More

The "New Howards" is a great restaurant that is both inviting and friendly. I have been twice now and will continue to dine at this establishment. I have read through the reviews and I am sure some have encountered some issues, but for goodness sake give it time. This new location is much larger than the other and I believe... More

Stopped in for lunch with my wife, had to wait a bit but it was fine. Once seated we were greeted by our server .The menu is not extensive but covers all the basics. There was a salad bar , but many of the choices were mayonnaise or marinated. There were not many choice in the lettuce/vegetables. The food was... More

I wish I could be more positive but the 'new' Howard's really missed the mark on all fronts. Parking is ridiculous so you have to use the bank next door. The entrance is nice, modern, but then inside it is like a cafeteria. No table clothes and plastic chairs. The service is really poor with taking far too long to... More

I've been driving by the new Howard's for months and wondering when it would be done. The wait is over, and I've been there twice in the past week. I went for lunch with friends and tonight with my husband. My impression is very favorable. I like the look of the exterior, but I do hope they do some decorating,... More

Went to Howard's for a late morning breakfast. Had never been to the new building. It felt like a hospital cafeteria. Clean, uncluttered, and organized. Food was poor. How difficult is it to make easy-over eggs? Portions are small and presented without fanfare, boring to behold. The waitress was quick to bring us our bill and kept coming back to... More

Having lived in the Englewood area for many years, it was a pleasant surprise to find the new Howards to be fresh and unlike anything else in town. Instead of the old, tired style of the area we found a modern, refreshing restaurant with plenty to offer. The seating around the bar is very popular so you may have to... More

This is a brand new location for an old establishment. Beautiful landscaping, very eye catching décor as you walk in, it felt very inviting in wanting to see more. Seating is spacious can not see what your neighbors are eating. As I was there for lunch they had a large menu with sandwiches, soup, salads. I chose the salad bar... More

I did not think the food here was very good. Alfredo tasted like flour/water mixture. Had to wait a long time for a table even though restaurant was pretty empty.
