Came for chowder fest and our friends recommended Howard's. The food was good the staff friendly and attentive. The price was reasonable. I had the crab cake and broiled lobster tails. The food was on time and prepared very well. I will be back !!!

Only open Fri.-Sun. until sometime in Oct. Closed until "next season". Really too bad. The best experience I have had at a restaurant on LBI. Open 5-9pm. Being a local to the area, I would visit all year long. You can bet I will be back. Known for their fried lobster tails-Very good! The best Gulf fried shrimp I have... More

My husband and I went there for dinner with our friends who live on Long Beach Island. We visit them once a year and this is the 3rd time we have gone to Howard's. The food and service is great. Two of us got fried scallops. Terrific! One of us got broiled scallops. He said they were great. And my... More

Me and my fiance go there every now and then. It's sad to say there isn't too much to chose from the menu. It seems to be so expensive and it costs almost $61 which I personally feel. The food is just okay and I won't go there next time.

My family and I stopped here for dinner hoping to enjoy dinner without a long wait. Luckily for us we were seated right away. The atmosphere at Howard's is very pretty. I sat next to the window with a view of the bay at sunset. Perfect. The service was great. The seafood was so fresh and delicious. I enjoyed the... More

Another BYOB in LBI. We started with the mussels, huge hit at our table. Calamari was so so. Clam chowder was very good....lobster bisque not as good. Shrimp scampi (we asked for it over pasta) was very good. Surf and turf, filet and tails was ok. The filet was good but the tails were tiny cut in half, 3 pieces... More

We have looked forward to vacation dinners at Howard's for more than 30 years! Great appetizers to share (love the vegetable platter and calamari), and yummy warm rolls. Seafood entrees are excellent -- hard to choose! Breaded deep fried lobster is a specialty -- absolutely delicious, but suggest you add a piece to your selection rather than choosing this as...

Howard's has an extensive menu to pick from of gourmet seafood dishes. The fried lobster is out of this world and the scallops were exquisite, and can be prepared with a option of sauces. Staff are very friendly and our waitress was very knowledge and helpful with our questions about the different selections. Very popular destination on LBI

The food was much better than last year and our waitress (although new) was personable and attentive. The hostess that seated us had a lot of tatoos (which is fine), but her bare arms and jeans put us off (kind of sloppy-looking). Anyway, the french fried lobster, crab cakes and fried shrimp were perfect (as well as the salads and... More
