Love the Lobster! Love the Cole slaw! My wife got the Crab Cake and French Fried Lobster. She told me the Crab cake was tasty. My daughter got the Sea Scallops, I tasted one and there were great, I would get this dish if I didn't love the Lobster. Get seated and order before 5:45pm and get 10% off the... More

My husband and I always have dinner at Howard's Seafood at least once every time we go to LBI. It's great food and friendly service make it a joy to go. He enjoys the fried lobster tail and I enjoy the flounder Maryland on their menu. They also have fresh seafood that they give you a choice of how to... More

Ambiance similar to an Atlantic City Buffet. As we walked up to our table, I looked at what others were eating and my heart sank. Everything was deep fried and looked like a kids meal at McDonald's. Food was indistinguishable, everything looked like fish sticks, chicken nuggets and fries (even if it wasn't)...all a color of yellow/orange/brown. I heard about... More

I'll keep this one short and sweet. We've eaten at Howard's many times over many years and I'm happy to report it's better than it's ever been. Thanks to Sandy, the restaurant has been totally renovated and is clean and inviting now. The service was excellent, our meals were all very good and the prices were the same as last... More

Howard's is a great place to have a nice relaxing dinner on the Island. It is a bring your own and there is a liquor store across the street. The lobster bisque is amazing! You must get it. We even get some to go! I also highly recommend the crab cake broiled. Staff was kind and helpful. We will be... More

We have been coming to Beach Haven for years, but this was our first visit to Howard's. The food was excellent and service was very good. You have to try the French fried lobster. We took our 3 kids, ages 1, 3, and 5. The place is kind of tight, so if your kids aren't well behaved they can get... More

Entrees are expensive considering that they are fairly mediocre and primary choices are different types of fried seafood. On the positive side, staff was friendly and food was served quickly. All in all, I am sure there are other restaurants on LBI that provide better value for the cost.

Poor service and (for NJ Shore) average but good fresh seafood makes you wonder about the long lines. Yes BYOB is awesome and there's a superb wine shop just across the road. Have the NE clam chowder... some of the best we've had, and any of the local fish, sword, tuna, all good. Avoid the calamari which is greasy and... More
