They serve beer or wine inclusive with the meals. I think this is the drawing card. We had the flatbread chicken sandwich and I'd suggest they replace this with a flatfread pizza. I'd also suggest a better/larger selection of beer that comes with the meal. Service was good and employees were friendly. It draws a good crowd, so obviously, I... More

Took awhile to get meal. Had burgers and chicken fried steak very tasty. No baked potatoes, sweet potato fries too thin and we're just warm. Sangria served by the carafe and very good. Salad included add ons which were served around the outside. Ample size servings. Affordable prices

We love going to Howard's. Fresh salad and beer. The meal is just a bonus. It's causal and friendly. The service is always good. Hands down this is the biggest bang for your buck, locally.

Howard's Cafe is a local joint that serves delicious burgers that come with a large salad, scrumptious waffle fries (and other types of potatoes) and all the wine and beer you want (at no extra cost)...The atmosphere is comfy and friendly, as are the wait staff and the owners. Just love this place. Going there tonight as a matter of... More

The food at this strip mall bare/pub is many steps above would you would normally expect at a place like this. Their marinated steak competes with Outback or Texas Road House. Most meals and burgers come with salad and a picture of soda, beer or wine. The service is normally very good and the food is always first rate. ,

You wouldn't think that this place in the middle of a large shopping plaza would be a decent place to get a burger, but it is. The bar makes the entrance a bit narrow, but it widens up in the back, allowing space for a lot of tables. The staff was friendly, but not overbearing. One issue I had was... More

No matter how young or old you are, there is something for you to enjoy here. With the unlimited wine/beer with your entrée, it's a no brainer for adults and for the children, the back room is conducive to them being a little noisy without disturbing the rest of the diners. Better get there early (before 5pm) if you don't... More
