We rarely miss a stop when renting a pontoon boat without a few libations and snacks at Howie's/ necessary visit and back off to the lake. Wonderful place to sit and have abit of something hot and tasty washed down with something cool.. Sounds like a perfect day or night to us.

Not a bad place at the end of the summer, on a Sunday afternoon on a beautiful day. But I wouldn’t go to this place any other day, time, or time of year. It IS a dive (a la “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”) and a less-than-family-friendly clientele frequents this place. We ate outside...by the way, they had some “sanitary” problems and a port-a-potty is still routine fare for those needing “services."

We got keen to Howie's from a friend who has been going there for years. In the summer it feels like your just hanging out at the lake by your buddy's house. They have a decent craft beer selection, which is always changing. The food is good and they always have specials that are delicious and well priced. Howie's is the quintessential Portage Lakes bar.

Typical resort town bar, Howie's has a solid food offering and the selection of beverages are typical. The chicken wings are plentiful and taste great. I like the area for parking motorcycles and the view of the lake is a nice background for a relaxing dining experience.

Service was great. Staff was friendly. Read an article that raved about the $9 All-You-Can-Eat beer-battered cod served with shoestring fries and something that does NOT qualify as coleslaw. The cod is delicious, don't get me wrong! It comes in chunks or blocks, as opposed to flat filets...they are juicy, well cooked.The serving of fries was average and a little too brown...easy to do with shoestrings..so not a lot of attention paid by cook. The "coleslaw" was shredded red cabbage, but the "sauce" was some kind of white, pasty substance that was tasteless and the cabbage was difficult to chew. I did not bother to eat it. We were brought more fish "one piece at a time." Tartar sauce was nothing to write home about as far as taste goes, either. Must be the same tasteless white stuff...I won't go so far as to call it mayo. Unfortunately, you get tired of waiting, because you can eat the blocks/chunks of fish in 5 bites, a lot faster than they can cook it, and bring it to you. Go....eat the fish...remind the wait staff that you'd like the fries this side of dark brown!

A little hard to find, from land side, but worth the hunt! Great $4.95 burgers on Mondays all day. That's what I had. Great service too, but I was nearly the only one there that day for lunch. I heard it gets a little crowded on Fri. & Sat. nights. Nice outdoor patio area, where I sat, overlooking the lake. Great views. Hope to come back when near Canton/Akron areas.....

Great lakes hang-out. Was taken over from the original owner. Kitchen has been fired up with great sandwiches and snacks to go with the always great beverages.
Being on the lake allows boaters to visit and enjoy. Clean atmosphere, friendly help and a good environment to visit.

Food is OK and prepared quickly but a locals hang out with some unsavory characters playing darts,etc. Would only recommend if there weren't other choices available to you

I love Howies patio. On A warm day it's perfect place for a few drinks and a sandwich. The inside bar is a bit rowdy and not for kids, but the patio is family friendly. The food is average and at times the food counter is closed on a busy day which doesn't make sense. We've been going to Howie's for years and it's one of my favorite kick back places,
