My husband and I have been wanting and saying we were going to try Howard's for several years and have yet to do so until one day.....We walked by Howard's and decided to give it a try since there was no waiting. The decor style is a little outdated but that is what we love with the local eateries. I... More

I had the 8 oz steak burger. My bf ordered the Chop steak. We both were satisfied with our food. I never ran out of tea and the waitress was very nice. We will definitely be back

came in one day on a whim. Saw the sign for best steak in the area so I wanted to try it out. I was taken to the patio which was nice with the stream next door. Ordered my drink and then the waiting began. Took awhile to receive my drink and once I had it I did not see... More

Since this place has great reviews we tried the place. The waitress was friendly however the burger was dry and tough no flavor Wish we would've tried somewhere else . We parked in the back at a hotel the mgr said it was ok. You may have better luck than us

If you want a fantastic steak with great service this is the place to go on the Gatlinburg strip, my fiancé and I had the "steak for two" and it was all we could do to finish it, Angie was our server and she was top notch, excellent restaurant!

I read the other reviews before we ate here and since we all wanted burgers, thought we would give it a try. I wish I had heeded my instinct to run. The smell was unpleasant, and the floor was so dirty I didn't even want to put my umbrella down. I'm not sure how anyone could consider the burgers quality.... More

We've been here a few times, but the last couple of times haven't been all that great.. Last night was definitely far from great.. We waited about 25-30 min for our food to get to our table, our waitress took our order on a piece of paper with a crayon, and was hard to find at times.. We love this... More
