We have been coming to Beach Haven for years, but this was our first visit to Howard's. The food was excellent and service was very good. You have to try the French fried lobster. We took our 3 kids, ages 1, 3, and 5. The place is kind of tight, so if your kids aren't well behaved they can get in the way and annoy other customers pretty easily. The service was quick enough that our kids kept it together, but not so fast that you feel rushed. We'll certainly return.

Entrees are expensive considering that they are fairly mediocre and primary choices are different types of fried seafood. On the positive side, staff was friendly and food was served quickly. All in all, I am sure there are other restaurants on LBI that provide better value for the cost.

Poor service and (for NJ Shore) average but good fresh seafood makes you wonder about the long lines. Yes BYOB is awesome and there's a superb wine shop just across the road.

Have the NE clam chowder... some of the best we've had, and any of the local fish, sword, tuna, all good.

Avoid the calamari which is greasy and tasteless. The french fried lobster is a great way to ruin lobster.

Our recent visit to Howard's was wonderful and exactly what we were looking for -- go there for a nice meal of fresh seafood in a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. My scallops were fresh and delicious. My husband also enjoyed his blackened mahi. The homemade salad dressings are especially nice! Service was pleasant and effecient. We would definitely return to Howard's and recommend to others visiting the area.
