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

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Howard's . Everything was fresh and delicious. Dinner includes warm rolls, salad and choice of a side. Had great seats overlooking the neighboring Marina. Can't wait to go back.

We had a large group; 6 adults and two children, some of them being international guests, and we wanted to show them NJ seafood. I remember Howards from my youth, and figured it was the 'ideal' LBI seafood experience. We went 5:00 on a Wednesday. As we were shown to our table, we were chastised for one of our group... More

This is the first time we've been here in about 10 years & it's just as good as we remember. We arrived a little after 5pm when they opened & were promptly seated by a welcoming hostess who also furnished us with a gluten free menu. They do not accept reservations so unless you arrive early, expect to wait awhile... More

Great fried lobster. Good service and fresh seafood. They have a bar which brings the price up a bit.

The staff goes out of their way to welcome guests and the seating is efficient. This is a BYOB, and the set-up (ice bucket) wine opening was addressed immediately. The menu is varied and tempting - but - Fried Lobster is their specialty. Even if you have something against fried foods - try this dish. (It may bring you back... More
