The food was much better than last year and our waitress (although new) was personable and attentive. The hostess that seated us had a lot of tatoos (which is fine), but her bare arms and jeans put us off (kind of sloppy-looking). Anyway, the french fried lobster, crab cakes and fried shrimp were perfect (as well as the salads and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Howard's . Everything was fresh and delicious. Dinner includes warm rolls, salad and choice of a side. Had great seats overlooking the neighboring Marina. Can't wait to go back.

We had a large group; 6 adults and two children, some of them being international guests, and we wanted to show them NJ seafood. I remember Howards from my youth, and figured it was the 'ideal' LBI seafood experience. We went 5:00 on a Wednesday. As we were shown to our table, we were chastised for one of our group... More

This is the first time we've been here in about 10 years & it's just as good as we remember. We arrived a little after 5pm when they opened & were promptly seated by a welcoming hostess who also furnished us with a gluten free menu. They do not accept reservations so unless you arrive early, expect to wait awhile... More

Great fried lobster. Good service and fresh seafood. They have a bar which brings the price up a bit.

The setting is very nice, white linen table cloths and also great deserts. We have taken many of our friend here and now they... More

The staff goes out of their way to welcome guests and the seating is efficient. This is a BYOB, and the set-up (ice bucket) wine opening was addressed immediately. The menu is varied and tempting - but - Fried Lobster is their specialty. Even if you have something against fried foods - try this dish. (It may bring you back... More

We've been here twice, nine years apart. Food is excellent, service is top notch. Not too overpriced for the area. Will definitely come back.

We have been going here for more than 20 years. The menu has not changed much and with good reason. why mess with a good thing? Although I do not care for the french fried lobster (personal taste), anyone who has ordered it raves about it. All seafood is fresh and tasty. Service is good, staff friendly and knowledgeable.

The temperatures topping out in the low 90's at home, we decided to enjoy the cooler breezes offered on Long Beach Island, our visit so early in the summer season, some traffic lights were still on blinker. The beach area offered just a scattering of sunbathers - the crowds yet to arrive. Taking advantage of Howard's early diner's discount, we... More
