We wanted a nice place to have dinner but sat on plastic chairs in an enclosed porch. Not the atmosphere we were hoping for. They didn't have all that was listed on the specials menu and the mashed potatoes were horrible. Not sure how you...More

We were expecting a romantic dinner, but we ended up sitting on an enclosed porch on plastic chairs. Food was good and server was accommodating, but not in your face.

HH 's best asset is its people. The wait staff and management recognize a return customer and are happy to see you again. Their crabs are fairly priced and always a treat AND are Maryland crabs(not VA or DE!). In 10 years I have never...More

Service was slow and the flounder with crab was dry and full of shells. I honestly couldn't take one bite without having to pick a shell out of my mouth. It's convenient to where I live but i won't be giving it another try. Too...More

Howard House is inconsistant at best. On some trips you will get excellent service and fantastic food. Then other times the food will be poor and the service will match. I in the 80's and early 90's they had the best crab bisque in the...More
