Good food and a nice place to catch a Bulls, Blackhawks or baseball game!

Met some friends here. As another person wrote it is not your average sports bar. Looks like a lot of regulars eat and drink here. Had to wait 20 minutes for a table so it isn't the well kept secret another reviewer wrote. I think the 5 star reviews come from locals, but I give it a very strong... read more

I know after reading the other reviews that I am in the minority but I really tried to like it here. We went for the first time on a Groupon and had an ok lunch. We then went back to try the Sunday buffet brunch and thought it was pretty disappointing and limited in variety. We then went back again... More

Another well-kept secret in Niles. On Thurdays. they have two for one pizzas(takeout or eat-n). The thin crust pizzas are handmade with fresh cheese blend topping. Also on Thursdays they have $3.00 well martinis. The beer is cold, the waitresses are friendly, and they have several big-screens. What's not to like? Sunday brunch is cheap and delicious.

We went for an early New Years eve dinner and we were not disappointed. Though not huge, it is definitely a sports bar, including two large TVs, and about 15 smaller ones all around the dining and bar area. We did notice the manager on the floor and he was working every bit as hard as the rest of the... More

My wife and I decided to try the Howard Street Inn the day after Thanksgiving and are we glad we did! Upon entry you'll find a round dining area overlooking the golf course with floor to ceiling windows decorated with plentiful college/pro pennants & posters. A large bar area is on the East side plus there's several TV's with various... More

We came for lunch at 1:00PM---10 of us. Without reservations, they accommodated us easily. Service is excellent, beers and wine specials on Tuesday. They have specials everyday though. It wasn't loud when we were there. Very relaxed atmosphere, and on Sat. and Sunday, they have a buffet breakfast costing about 12 bucks. Outside dining is good, but not past September.... More

Our Lions club had arranged a golf outing here but the rain caused us to cancel the golf part. We had about 18 people come for dinner. There are lots of TV's all over with the typical sporting events. The wait staff was good and knowledgeable. The menu looked inviting. They also have a Sunday Brunch. Most of our group... More

WE have been going to Howard Street for years, the manager is almost always there, which is marvelous. The servers are fantastic and special requests are always welcome.

We have been to this place just about once a week since we discovered it six weeks ago. Late night, breakfast, lunch, or dinner - it has always been good.
