Atmosphere and all the interior was great. Food was only average. Beer selection superior but be prepared to spend $$$. Will not go again but nice for 1 time.

Everything is ala carte. I am surprised they didn't charge for the plate. My crab cake was horrible, his hamburger was overdone, cost extra for fries. So $9.99 for one crab cake not that big and that was it. Cute atmosphere but way overpriced and food not that good.

Tried this place for the first time this year, when my family & I visited Ocracoke Island. We all left with full bellies & smiles on our faces. The staff here all seem to really enjoy their job & that in itself made for a fantastic dining experience. I could've stayed all evening & eaten every smoked oyster in the... More

FOOD was very good. Enjoyed the fried shrimp one evening and a burger the next. Great service and pleasing atmosphere. Would definitely stop again on a return visit.

Great place and service. The night we were there, there was a live band playing which was great. Very comfortable, laid back environment with great food.

The wife and I visit Ocracoke a couple times each year and our eating plans center around Howard's Pub. Consistently good food and service is what keeps us coming back..and of course being on Ocracoke is a bonus.

A must stop if you venture over to Ocracoke, N.C. Howard's has expanded since the first time we visited. The serve a very very large selection of beers and the food is good. Service excellent, our waiter very attentive and friendly. We usually sit out on the "screened in area" which is decorated with "personalized" license plates from all over... More

We come to Howard's every trip to islands, and again it was great conch fritters and ocracoke chowder. Little light on fish portion but was excellently cooked and great flavor.
