I've been to Ocracoke now four different times and finally experienced Howards, for a late lunch. I had the 4" Pub turkey sandwich with pepper jack cheese and the fries. My friend got a variation of this same thing. Wasn't anything special but we were really hungry so it seemed all good. Service average and the price is about par... More

After a long hot day of biking all over the island, we showered and dressed to go out to dinner. When we arrived we were told we could wait outside or at the bar. We chose to stand awkwardly in the bar just to avoid the heat outside. When they came to take us to our table they led us... More

Great lunch. Fun atmosphere and good beer menu as well as drinks. Try the Ocracoma. Crab and shrimp dip appetizer is delicious.

The hostess (a young male) was not cordial when we entered, he only ask how many, did not ask if we wanted to sit inside or outside. We proceeded outside which was fine, and seated us at a table right in the busiest part of room. I asked if we could have another table as there were plenty available, and... More

for years I have heard about Howard's Pub. Well, We finally got a chance to go. Disappointed to say the least. Wait staff was good. But, I asked the waiter why the clam strips were the same price for adults and kids. He told me they get less and also a toy. Well. they both were $9.99. When they came... More

I don't know if I had ever been to a restaurant that was so fun, had such an interesting decor, staff so friendly and the food was so good. Our party of 7 had a wide variety of selections. Every fish meal couldn't have been fresher unless you caught it yourself and you immediately cooked it and the burger and... More

Howards is a must when going to ocracoke. It's the biggest place bar on the island with tons of beers on tap. The food is ok. It's a good place to go and hangout and have some beers and snack.

Very good food, Very good service, Fun decor. We choose to eat at Howard's each year because of a very good previous experience. This year we actually stopped at Howard's more than 80% of the time for our late day meal. The servers were prompt and courteous, the food yummy. Howard's is always a pleasure
