“Decent”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere was fun and the service was great but food was not the best. Mozzarella sticks came out cold and burgers were ok but not much flavor. It's decent for lunch maybe but not dinner.

“Howard's pub ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Our visit at Howard's was a lot better this year then it was in the past. The best part was the atmosphere, it's a very fun place to be! The live music was great. We will continue to make it back at least once a year.

“Traditionally great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

This is usually our first stop to eat when on the Island. The food never disappoints. The wait staff can be a little slow at times, but they are friendly and knowledgeable about the food.

“Pub food at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

An island institution that does not disappoint. Great burgers and sandwiches, with a large beer selection. Noisy, active restaurant filled with families right off the beach, with a funky, license plate and beer sign covered décor.

“Good Eats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

Definitely want to stop at Howard's Pub for lunch or dinner if visiting Ocracoke Island. Our kids ordered burgers and salads which they enjoyed. The kids meal is served on a frisbee you can take with you which is a pretty cool. I love their blackened tuna sandwich and the teriyaki tuna sandwich. It is a nice thick portion of tuna steak on the sandwich. Service is fast and friendly. Highly recommend.
