Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just been to this restaurant for the first time. Went with a couple of girlfriends. I had read only negative reviews online so I was worried about how it was going to be. I needn't have worried at all. It is a lovely place with a nice atmosphere and we all thoroughly enjoyed our food. The menu is very extensive and would please even the pickiest of eaters. There's definitely something for everyone - the menu doesn't seem to be fully available online, so don't rely completely on what you find on your computer. We had a complicated order but the waitress made a good job of sorting us out! When the food came, it was very nicely presented on wooden platters and it was very hot, which is pleasing. Everything was very flavourful and well cooked. My only slight criticism is that the serving staff didn't pay much attention to us once we'd got our food - no mid-meal checking if everything was ok; no checking on our drinks; not noticing very quickly that we'd finished and wanted to order dessert; not taking our money! The overall experience was very good but I would recommend the staff have a little bit more training. I would be happy to go again, knowing how good the food here is and I have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant to others.

We really enjoy coming to this restaurant, despite being alcohol free, the food and service is exceptional. Good portion sizes and reasonable prices. Even better when it was 50% off for the eat out to help out scheme. Eddie the floor manager is friendly and attentive, and makes sure you are looked after. Thanks and we'll be back!

Service at the restaurant was very good and accommodating for a family. Food arrived promptly and staff checked we had everything we ordered. We had Sizzlers which were very good and portions were very big too. Overall we enjoyed eating here and will come back again.

I was recommended Howdy's by some friends and I have learnt that I should have trusted my own judgement. What a mistake! It is a poorly designed western themed restaurant. When entering the place you are greeted with a waiter/waitress wearing normal clothing but with the addition of a cowboy hat and maybe a shiny buckle. I thought it was a children's place. But then I looked at the prices on the menu. Unbelievable I thought. I was up from London and thought the north was cheap. This was a dark and dank busy main road in Bradford where there was rows of restaurants. It was £15 for a burger and £2.50 for a coke. Whilst that would be acceptable for a "gourmet" burger, this was not that. When my food arrived it was served on a wooden chopping board which was no different than the chopping board your nan used. There were a few steak cut chips of the "iceland" kind. The cheese on the burger was your ordinary sliced mild white that you buy in bulk. Nothing gourmet about this in any away. When I went to pay the £80 bill they said they don't accept card payments. I could have understood if it was a few quid but surely question whether they pay their taxes if they are only accepting cash. To add insult to injury I was ill th next day, which I put down to the wooden chopping board that acted as a plate. I would stay away. I should have stuck to a simple curry place, after all that is what Bradford is famour for.

We visited Howdy because we’d seen their sizzler dishes online and decided to try them ourselves. We had a lamb sizzler and an Apache chicken sizzler and we were so disappointed with what was served. The lamb tasted of spices but no flavour of the actual meat. It was as though every spice in the rack had been used to disguise it and make it taste of something. It was grey in colour and could have been absolutely any meat. The chicken portion was small and again lacked flavour. The accomplishments were lacklustre: pasta and noodles were bland and tasteless, instant mash rather than actual mash potatoes, chips, “steamed veg” that had seen better days and wasn’t nice at all. It all quite dire. I had school dinners in the 80’s that were better! The restaurant also has cutlery en mass in pots on each table which I think is a huge no no given that we are in a pandemic and I’d expect all tables to be thoroughly sanitised after each group left- which they weren’t! We even had a family given a table and seated by staff, where their child was sat less than a foot from our table. There isn’t really any excuse for not taking adequate measures to keep guests safe from COVID-19. On a final not I would like to point out that prices charged DO NOT match the prices in the given menus. If you are going to visit make sure to double check everything with staff. I don’t think we will be returning in a hurry.

Went with family ordered sharing wing platter, the wings weren't fresh asked for them to be taken back we didn't want them anymore, male staff insisted he gets me another platter even when I've said I don't want it. Has it packed for me to takeaway again I've said to him I don't want it I've told you before yet continues to be pushy and is bang out of order. I've taken the packed food to the till to pay ive explained to the male on the till what's happened am not getting pushed into taking something I don't want. The bill came to 74 pounds I gave him 80, the bill which included the wings platter which was 12.95 I think. He's given me change of 12 pounds. I don't know what sort of maths this is. Disappointed with the service first time and last time. Disgusted by their attitude.

Heard about this place from a few friends and went in having high expectations but it was atrocious! Food was so dry and the howdy sauce tasted terribly mouldy. Manager putting on a front to impress customers but literally shouting at one particular staff who seemed like she was about go break down in tears. I really felt bad for that girl, she was a tall, slim girl who was fairly dark skinned and I only noticed her false green nails. Her manager was constantly shouting her name when she was speaking to customers which doesn’t allow her to do her job properly and whilst she’s cleaning tables, there’s another female and gentleman stood there gossiping. Manager not even giving a care about other staff sitting around but only cared when that one girl stood to take a break. We ordered steaks and they were so dry and it was still red raw when I cut into it. Would compliment the cowboy theme but can’t compliment a place that doesn’t have any skills when cooking and service was only good because that one Asian girl was hard working. We came all the way from Manchester to try this place out but never again, have so much hate for this place and the manager who treating everyone differently. I really wanted to love this place but after yesterday which was the 4/12/21 And travelling down just to eat from this place, I’m very disappointed and don’t think I’ll ever want to step food into howdys ever again.

We were taken to our table, the waitress threw down two menus and walked away to talk to to other staff members; the menu was torn to shreds. The ribs were sold out, so had t-bone steak, asked for mushroom sauce, that too was off the menu. Asked if house sauce was spicy but the waiter didnt know. When food came it was with horrid random veg, horrible tasting house sauce, mash filled with pepper, steak cooked in chilli and pepper, non of this was in the menu, I ate it cos I was hungry! The staff need training, they need to know the menu,they need to know how to welcome their customers. Very dissappointed!!

DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM!! I ordered on just eat to the pudsey branch, went to collect at the time given and its closed, not even a car in the car park. Just eat refuse to help me over the live chat and when the company finally answered the phone they told me I had ordered to the Bradford branch which is not true it says this on just eat. So they said only option was to collect the food, I am at work I cant come back out again... Disgusting customer service and blaming it on just eat when they have false info on just eat.

Brilliant concept but service was absolutely dreadful. It took 30 minutes for our drinks to arrive, over an hour for the starters to come to the table. We had 2 very hungry fed up little girls. An awful lot of customers were complaining and or leaving. The restaurant had run out of a number of items on the menu and given they don’t serve alcohol running out of Fanta and coke is very bad planning. The only saving grace for this place was the 2 young waiting staff who were run ragged yet continued to be polite, professional and apologetic. If it wasn’t for them we would have joined the others leaving. On a positive note the food when it arrived was really good. If I was the manager in there today at the very least I would have been offering free desserts or drinks.

My family and I booked a table for 8 for Saturday 4 March 2023 to celebrate my 64th birthday. This was the most disgusting service I have ever in my 64 years seen. When we arrived our booked for 4:30 PM table was not ready. After about a 10-minute wait, we were finally seated, and this is when the real fun begins. A server came and ordered our drinks and when they came to the table a fruit shoot was missing as well as glasses of ice as the Coke products are served in glass bottles that are warm. My wife went up and explained about the drink, but the server was rude and didn’t listen. The server then took our started and main order (which she never read back, and we were sure it was wrong). All the starters came out except my wife’s. After a couple of minutes, I went to one of the servers and asked about the starter and was told 2 minutes. After another 5 minutes a server came to the table and said that the starter my wife ordered was not on the menu (Surf and Turf) And as I started to get a bit upset the supposed manager came over and stated they had the starter and would be there in 2 minutes. After another 10 minutes I toll the manager to cancel my wife’s start and to bring out the main meals. Lo and behold they brought out my wife’s T-Bone steak and nothing else. When I queried the manager the rest of the mains had not been started. I was so disgusted that I told the staff I was done, and we left. On the way out 3 young ladies agreed with us as they waited 50 minutes for their meal and after asking for the bill waited another 20 minutes and finally walked up to pay, thus how we met them. As I am a southern American, I was really looking forward to the visit but was very disgusted with the service and attitude of the staff. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, even my worst enemy. The night was saved by a proper restaurant and the evening ended 1000% better. Just close this restaurant now.

came as a family from out of town. couldn’t get the order right, asked for medium cooked steak, got a well done. cheese wasn’t melted. staff more interested in wearing cowboy hats than serving customers. absolutely digusted at the price. more than £120 for 5 people, food was bland, might as well have had covid and ate brocolli.

Visited the Manchester Howdy (can’t find the link to review that one). We were a large group for a birthday. The decor and atmosphere was great, very original and we loved the theme. All staff were working hard, friendly and efficient. We had a few members of our group who were Deaf and the staff were patient and adapted to the needs of our group. The food itself was served quickly and great portions! Everyone enjoyed their food. The mocktails and deserts were great. Only 2 negatives - 1) Everything is very overpriced so this is only somewhere for a one off treat for a birthday etc. it’s expensive. 2) although I totally understand the no alcohol policy and reasons I do think a non alcoholic beer could be introduced to the menu just so some customers still have that flavour that they like alongside meat. Overall we had a good meal, the staff sang happy birthday and were accommodating with sparklers and the cake we brought along. Also allowing us to decorate the table with balloons and confetti. Would only come again for an occasion and would save up first ££. But great idea & great theme!

Very impressed. Food came in less than 10 minutes from ordering and was very hot. Ordered two sizzlers and both were very tasty. The lamb chops were also a generous portion. Lovely customer service. Unique interior. Have been before and would definitely recommend to others.
