Went for Prime Rib night. Yum!! Huge portions, great taste. Drinks were made perfectly. I had. Amazing long island ice tea. Staff was right on top of what I needed and very friendly. I will defiantly go back and try the breakfast. Great service! Thank you.

I grew up with this kind of diner/restaurant. We admit to being spoiled by all the choices and competition in the Portland Metro area. But this place does not even measure up outside of the Portland scene. If you like a place, that feels like everyone there just finished smoking a whole pack of cigarettes and you like your food...

We stopped in for dinner and had the steak special. The steak was cooked to perfection. A top rated steak house couldn't do better. Unfortunately, the steak was as tough as shoe leather. The baked potato was also cooked to perfection. Maybe they need to find a better purveyor for their meat. Very nice staff working there.

I don't eat breakfast regularly, so it's a special treat for me. You can always find a chain; when I agree to meet someone for breakfast somewhere, I prefer to seek out someplace new. Food, service and ambiance are priorities, in that order. The place has to meet at least two of the three to even be considered. This week... More

Great food (and drinks)! The prices are excellent! If you sit in the small dining area, the cook is also your waiter. I highly recommend the cheeseburger with a side if their homemade potato salad....definitely the best around. Enjoy!!

I visited Howell's with my mother and had an undesirable experience. I ordered the streak, mashed potatoes & gravy with mixed vegetables and a side salad. The quality of the meat was poor and it was over cooked. Salt needed to be added to the entire meal and the vegetables were mushy. The service was fair and there were many... More

A group of us meet every Thursday for breakfast at spots all over the greater Portland area. We always enjoy returning to this old school cafe and bar. Manager Wes has a table set up for us, makes a mean bloody Mary, and has no problem giving us separate checks. Food is tasty and generously portioned.

Use to go here with my mother and recently took my wife for anniverseity dinner. just like I remembered, great food at a reasonable price. We both had the captian's platter and were surprised by the quality and mount of seafood on our plate. Going here again for my upcoming birthday.
