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.

Have been eating and drinking at Howard's for almost 25 years. Never a bad meal. Excellent owners - John and Mike - they are like family.

Howards is awesome. We are regulars and love the casual atmosphere. Makes a stressful busy day a pleasure to relax, have great bite to eat and enjoy the fun, friendly atmosphere. The service is top notch and everyone is happy to work here, so the positive enthusiasm is spread to the customers; who mainly are regulars. Great grilled chicken, turkey... More

It was too much to eat at one meal so a take home box was... More

All I can do here is echo the positive statements made by others. Howard's is our default place to eat out. The entire experience, starting with the staff, is always great. They are friendly and efficient. My wife and I have our standards almost every time we visit. I have one of the several dozen burgers on the menu and... More
