An LBI tradition

This is a little gem of a restaurant. The menu offers shore food choices- flounder, crabocakes. shrimp, and scallops... The house speciality is fried lobster- prepared wonderfully. We also tried the Bouillabaisse and were not disappointed. Salad dressings and great dinner rolls were very nice, as... read more

Howard's is the last best seafood restaurant onLBI, which is rife with pizza and burger joints. their French fried lobster is great,as are the soft shell crabs. Delicious bread and salads.

We ordered 2 crab cake dinners broiled... wasn't to mine or my daughters taste. My other daighter had the shrimp and linguini, her shrimp were to chewy she couldnt eat them. My husband got a steak it was about 2 inches square. He said it was tasty but tiny. It was like a school cafeteria but louder, wait staff avoided... More

We've been going to Howard's for years. We typically eat there at least twice during our weeks long vacations to LBI. It is consistently good. The Flounder Maryland is very good as are most all of there seafood. Stay away from the filet. You will be disappointed. My wife got it tonight as she was "all fished out". It might... More

The good: large dining area with a decent view if you get a window seat. Quick seating. The okay: food was decent, though not up to expectations considering the price. Byob. The not so great: service was polite, but seemed overtaxed. After 10 min trying to flag our waiter we were able to get refills on soda and water. The... More

Our group enjoyed a dinner here with most everyone having crab cakes and other fish. Everyone was happy with their meals. The lone meat eater's filet mignon looked lonely though with just rice......should have some veggies on the side at least and maybe be a little larger in size. But all was delicious including the warm rolls. And it's so... More

My family & I love Howard's - we always make it a point to go here once or twice when we vacation on LBI. The food is fantastic - we love the lobster and the scallops are also great. All of the seafood is fresh and well-prepared but the sides are also good as well. We've always found the service... 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

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, the food and the... More
