We've been in the Venice for 3 years and have heard of Howard"s from several people. We were there on a Sunday and the parking lot was empty, should have been an omen. We had fried oysters and a crabmeat stuffed lobster. The oysters were so greasy and tasteless that my wife had to send them back. They asked if she would like something else and she asked for fried shrimp and they brought them right out. The batter was lacking but the shrimp were large. Wy wife did not have a good experience. Now to my meal. I had a crab stuffed lobster. The lobster was a good size and the stuffing was delicious. It was a little overpriced but within reason.
Bottom line, we tried a new place....we won't be back.
