Howard House closed some time ago. An Irish Pub Minihane's opened in the same location and did a major renovation and improvements. If you enjoy Irish music and food, you should visit Minihane's. They have live music.

Howard House has been closed for some time and just reopened. The building has been restored to its original charm and the official reopening is scheduled for St Patrick's Day. I may be misspelling the name but it's the owner's name. Something like Monahan. Have to rate it during the time it was closed. Great job, Trip Advisor. Clueless.

My husband and I usually try to go the Howard House at least once a year. The past two times we were there the service was terrible. Food is always good.

well we headed out there based on the fact that we were close by and that there were reasonably good reviews on this site. Unfortunately it's closed and i mean permenantly. there's a big for sale sign up, so it doesnt look like it will be open any time soon

We love this place, and invited four friends to join us for a Sat. afternoon lunch. This was our friends first time and they can't wait to go back. They raved about the soup and the half priced burgers on Sat. what a great deal. The menu has a wide variety, everyone had a different sandwich and we enjoyed sharing... More

The Howard House Tavern was recommended to me by the staff at the Hampton Inn a few miles away on Warner Road. It's a neat, old historic building with a nice, cozy feel to it. I was by myself, traveling on business. I was seated at a small table next to a window facing the street. I started with a... More

Later in the evening trying to find a place to eat we were lucky enough to get to the Howard House before they stopped serving for the evening. Neat little pub with a nice selection of choices on their menu. I opted for the crab cake dinner hoping that it would be similar to one that still burns in my... More

I had Maryland steamed crabs over the weekend and they were great. The crabs were seasoned to perfection, the taste was good, they were full, and the price was great. It was date night without children, so after eating in the dining room, we went to the bar area to hear a live band. It was a fun place to... More

First visit to a nice but quaint setting in downtown Elkton. Seated on second floor enclosed porch overlooking North and West Main Street. Service was very good by our waitress named Lisa. Lots of specials on Tuesday and Thursday nights with some at half price. We had Terry's Crab Bisque which was very tasty. The Howard House Crab Melt, Crab... More
