We had a party of 9 so it was a little bit of wait but by the time we finished dinner we all forgot about the wait. Our server was outstanding and the food was exceptional. The oysters and fried lobster was the best. Highly...More

An island classic plays with table cloths and views of the marina. Probably the only place I would order raw clams, and I did and they were great. Had some whole fried Snapper done exceptionally well. All the food was very well prepared and fresh....More

The service when busy is lacking. Waters not refilled, plates not cleared unless you stacked them at the end of the table. Food was ok. If you have kids do not come here. The 9$ kids pizza is a joke. Put your thumb and pointer...More

Update: it has been 2 days and I still have not been contacted by anyone from the restaurant to apologize for the poor service. Obviously they don't care if locals are happy or not, as long as they make money off the summer crowd. I...More

Wonderful dinner, great service by Brian, beautiful sunset view. Our group enjoyed the fantastic lobster bisque, signature cole slaw, and a variety of seafood dishes, Howard's NEVER disappoints!

Always excellent; nice setting, great service. French fried lobster is a treat. Cole slaw could be the best on LBI!

My friend told me about this place and the fried lobster. We went early because they don't take reservations and it's a bring your own. Excellent dinner. Comes with bread and butter, salad, and a potato, rice or fries. Coleslaw is also an option instead...More

The family-owned & operated Howards has been serving delicious seafood at this location since 1950. Two reasons for this longevity - consistency in food preparation & the use of top quality fresh foods. The friendly greeting you receive upon entering this establishment & the upbeat...More

We never go to Howard's during the season. Once before the season starts and once after. That's it. We only order the French Fried Lobster. It is always an enjoyable dinner. But there service is stressed there. The young servers seem to be in fear...More

Not sure, but they are not open all year. My guess would be around the first week in October.

I honestly don't know if they take reservations. It's usually pretty busy in spite of the high prices and the fact that it's BYOB
