Great food

Great food! We had clam chowder and mussels ( very large and could split) which were fantastic! Had to order the French fried lobster with crab cake - both were terrific. I wish we remembered the BYOB. We went early - and got right in - line after we left. Loud place but had a great meal.

Seafood is decentand the service was good. Dining room is very noisey. Take your kids there or go for simply prepared fish. Not special.

We ate there on a Sunday evening, got there at 5Pm, were seated right away, we were also given a 10% discount for having our entire party (there were two of us) seated by 5:45, nice atmosphere, comfortable temperature. Our waitress was very professional. Wife had broiled scallops, I had hrimp and scallop scampi. The meals came with a small... More

I remember coming here as a kid (30+ years ago) and being like "wow" for french fried lobster. Well, we still make a trip here every time we are in LBI and so worth it. Food is always fresh and delicious. French fried lobster is one of a kind and their New England Clam Chowder ... simply the best.

Considering that this is LBI, this one is not as bad as so many of the other seasonal misfits. All dishes come with a salad and the BYOB policy makes things taste better

We were a party of 5 and was looking forward to a good fish meal. Yay we found it at Howard's! Staff were attentive, and food was good. On the pricey side. $37.00 for swordfish(fresh & local). If you come before 5:30-5:45? your party gets 10% off! Nice incentive.

Everything was great . The bread, apps and the dinner. The service everything was great. But it was little pricey. Will go back again to try something else.

I ordered the lobster bisque, which was very good. The crab imperial was very good also. The fried lobster was a nice treat. This was a nice beach restaurant although quite crowded and noisy. I would recommend to a friend.

We were a group of 5, and all had a great meal. Crabcake for starters, and of course the main fare, Fried Lobster. How sinfully delicious over lemon and a little butter of course. BYOB saves $; great staff; they are a treat on LBI. Cheers,
