Old Time Restaurant

Nice dinner. We were seated right away with reservations on a Friday night. There are so many places that don't take reservations around here and I can't stand around very long. Most of the dishes were nice. The restaurant has the feel of an old time supper club. Decent Wine List and prices... read more

Several (12) of us went to Howard's for dinner. Overall outside appearance was quite nice. This is a new building to house a restaurant that was located farther out on the highway 776. It's a bit difficult to get in, especially in the rain. There is no drop off point at the door. The restaurant was crowded which in hindsight... More

As you can imagine, Mollie, it is disappointing to read your review. We pride ourselves on customer service and food and it sounds like your experience with both were sub par. For that, we apologize. Dry fish certainly is not our standard and we are always happy to fix any issues there may be with your meal as soon as... More

My new fav waitress! Melia! SHe was fast, on point and knew what was expected. We had the lobster roll with ever so slightly over cooked sweet potato fries. But forgiveable because of the service. What a delightful experience while we visited this beautiful town. We even braved the cold to see a sunset that was spectacular. Thanks Howard's!

Had a bartender serve us by the name of JoJo who made our dining experience fabulous. The atmosphere is much better in this new location and sitting at the bar dining is where i enjoy sitting.

JJ was a fantastic waitress. Very attentive. Food was great. For those that love lobster rolls theirs are the best for being closest to New England style and large portion

We love the superb salad bar. It has so many great choices...pineapple Bok choy, chick peas and pesto, Greek, American and German potato salad, Krab and so much more. Wow! The main course is also always great. The decor is super modern and comfortable. And the desserts! Yummy! Did I mention they have a kid's menu, too? They were so... More

We tried the Chicken Parmesan with Penne. It was pretty good and the salad bar was alright. Just not that thrilling of an experience.

My husband and I live locally and often visit Howard's Restaurant. The decor in the restaurant is beautiful! We have 2 servers that we request(1) Malaya and (2) JJ. The servers are very friendly and accommodating. My husband loves the Hamburger and one if my favorites is the Corn Beef sandwich. I would recommend Howard's to anyone who likes good... More

We had heard that Howard's had great food and an early bird special. We arrived at about 4:30 on Wednesday. So many cars there had to park across the street. Very nice clean restaurant. Good food. Ordered the Shrimp Scampi (opted for sweet potato fries instead of rice) very good. My husband ordered eggplant parm with spaghetti. Oh, and drinks... More
