Looking for the all American meal, burger and fries? This is the spot. Thick patties, good quality meat, a variety of toppings, fresh buns and a fries. Lunch specials, to go, are cheap and fast. Located right by St Joseph College in Patchogue, it a nice lunch stop.

This review is on their burgers as that is what we have enjoyed for over 10 years here. When you order their burgers, and there are many different varieties, you get not just the burger but a salad to start as well as all the wine, beer or sangria you would like. The waffle fries and sweet potato fries are... More

LOVE this place ! Best marinated steak sandwich I've ever had, and the free beer with the meal is an awesome bonus. The service is pretty good too. Definitely a good atmosphere.

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
