“Enjoyed our dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Fun environment. Neat decor, lots of "stuff" from all over the place. Entertaining just looking around & reading the signs & looking at the decor. Unique, colorful, funky kind of place. A sports bar w/ TVs but not so "bar-ish" or too noisy...but we were only one couple among a few diners in the winter season. Not sure how it would be in high season w/ a crowd. The food was really good, the server great....friendly attentive, fast. Price comparable to other similar places but the quality of food & the ambiance of the place made it a better value. Would definitely go again.

“Fresh, Local seafood at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Very eclectic place with with a great atmosphere, service & food. Had the Oysters Rockefeller (best ever) & we both had The Hungry Howard - fried oysters, Scallops, Shrimp, Fried Clam Strips & fresh fish with hush puppies & cole slaw. It was a huge portion perfectly cooked & delicious, Lightly breaded & not greasy. Had enough left for another meal, even hubby had leftovers. Service was good. We def go again!!

“Great food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We were only in Ocracoke for one night, and were told we couldn't miss going to Howard's Pub. I'm very glad we took the advice - we had a great time. The pub is casual with a lively atmosphere, and the wait staff are laid-back and friendly. My husband appreciated the incredible selection of beers, and the food was well-cooked and tasty - I tried hush puppies for the first time, which was an interesting experience. A memorable meal out during our two-week trip in the States - highly recommended.

“Wonderful Hatteras Chowder”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

This was my first time to try Hatteras Chowder which my husband and his brother-in-law just raved about. They were right it is wonderful and Howard's is a great place to have it. The hamburgers were big and juicy. The wait staff were efficient, funny, and friendly.
