Sounds good....."free wine or beer" with dinner. The food is just ok. Nothing fancy. Not even a great hamburger. With the booze, you actually think its better than it is

The marinated steak is excellent as are the special wing appetizer. Each meal comes with either a carafe of wine, a pitcher of beer or soda and salad. The staff is friendly and Lewie the bartender is among the best of his craft.

We sat in the back dining room for a late night dinner and the food was very good. It got a little noisy at the bar area because a game was playing on the TV, but it wasn't overly loud where we couldn't hear each other. I had a french dip that was called something else (sports themed) and the... More

Mainly we eat here for their hamburgers. They're very, very good. Along with the burgers you also get a large salad, a side ( fries etc) & a refillable drink ( I had sangria that was super). Friendly & efficient wait staff.

So they really do wow you with kindness here. But besides the dingy decor, the food is nothing that will blow you away. I went on recommendations of others, but was disappointed enough that we would not go back. Sorry, Howard's Cafe.

Never a bad time at Howards. The menu is above average for a bar/grill. While the burgers are a staple, their dinner menu items are also always excellent. Have slowly gone through much of the menu, and have yet to come up with something I didn't like. Comes with salad, which comes in a large bowl, and your choice of... More

The staff is friendly, the food excellent and the price is fair. We eat here often and the marinated steak is great. Meals come with free beer or wine.
