The taste of summer

Made a trip "down to the shore" just to enjoy a seafood dinner at Howard's Seafood Restaurant (BYOB), our table overlooking the neighboring marina. We arrived at their door promptly at 5 p.m. & were able to enjoy our dinner at a 10% early bird discount (it runs from 5 p. to 5:45 p.m.). As always... read more

We have always loved Howard's over many decades of eating here. The ambiance is still wonderful, and the waiters are excellent. The bread, salad and desserts were really good. And we were pleased to see a vegetarian option. However, it does seem that the quality overall has dropped since the original owners ran it. The food was good but not... More

Went for dinner...it's ok. I think overpriced for what it is. Food is good, but $30 for a mahi mahi entree that was normal is not what i am looking for. If you are seated before 5:45 you get early bird special 10% off. It is byob. They have a kids menu of typical kids menu things.

we eat at Howard's almost once a week when they are open. They specialize in seafood, though you can get chicken, etc. all the tables have table cloths, linen napkins and candles. Most of the tables are facing the Bay, the waiting staff has many of the same servers year after year. It is a very popular place for locals... More

Friends have always said I have to go to Howards and have the deep fried lobster tails. I love lobster and I cannot tell you why I haven't gone to Howards over the years - perhaps I am just a rebel. I also like a cocktail before dinner and take note: Howards is a BYOB. However, the restaurant was at... More

Same old same old, which is probably why we've avoided the place since the early 50s even though our house was 3 blocks away and the boat was within 50 feet.

Arrived at 5 when the open and the line to enter wand there was already about 35 people waiting. We were a party of 1 and could be seated immediately since the restaurant had several tables already set up for large parties. ITs a BYOB and they don't take reservations or trust me we would have called in. The restaurant... More

I hadn't been to Howard's since before the hurricane a few years back. I returned this week with family members, including a two-year-old, for an early dinner. We arrived around 5:30 and were seated within five minutes. Arriving early is a must here. The staff members were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. Note to file: this is a bring your own... More

I have been to Howard's many times but this time was exceptionally good. The blackened tuna was delicious as well as the crab cakes. Our server was very knowledgable. We enjoyed ourselves
