OLD SCHOOL !! A real old style neighborhood bar, but with clean bathrooms. It may appear small at first but it grows on you. There are all kinds of food deals and it's all good. Prices are very reasonable too. It is a good all around place, I wouldn't bring kids in there only because it isn't themed or kiddie.... More

Howies.....simple, friendly, inexpensive.....a place to hang for as long as you wish. The classic neighborhood bar; however, one does not have to be from the neighborhood to feel welcome. Simple food, great pizza, cold beer and bountiful cocktails for cheap money. Always entertaining to sit at the bar...people still actually talk here! Although not marketed as an "Irish" pub, the...

Great bar to come with friends as it has such a relaxed friendly atmosphere. TV screens all over for us sports fans. Billy the bartender runs a smooth operation especially when the... More

First time to this local pub. Went with five others for a few beers and pizza. Having never been, I didn't know what to expect, was really surprised at what a great little spot this is. I'm sure 90% of the patrons are regular's, however they were all very friendly. Everyone was having a great time, two flat screens with... More

Howie's is a great neighborhood bar. The beer selection is good, it's cheap, the pizza is excellent and the owner is behind the bar. I have paid a lot more for a lot less in Portland. I think Howie's has a charm that you can only find in neighborhood places where everyone knows everyone. To be honest, I didn't know... More
