My wife and I stopped by cause we had heard about the patio seating from a friend. As soon as we walked up to the restaurant The host Jimbo took us to our table on the patio and it was a little chilly so we came back in by far one of the nicest outgoing people we met last weekend.... More

We ate here for lunch because it was directly in front of our hotel and right across the street from the Ober Gatlinburg entrance. I had the chicken philly sandwich and it was okay. I was disappointed in the onions and peppers not being done or even steamed...they seemed to be very raw for a philly chicken. It was good,... More

Came down from Uber Gatlinburg cold and hungry. Heard about Howard from property owner of our cabin. Waited a few minutes and were seated. That's as far as we got. Waitresses came and went with not even a " we'll be with you in a minute" or nothing. After half an hour of being ignored, we got up and left.... More

We ate lunch today at Howard's. It was quite an unexpected gem on Gatlinburg. We got the jalapeño poppers which were fantastic. We got burgers for lunch. They were steak burgers and Cooked perfectly. One of the best burgers I have eaten. We really enjoyed our meal. Great place to eat.

While walking through Gatlinburg to another highly rated restaurant we noticed a small sign stating that Howard's Steakhouse had outdoor dining. Being from a northern state my wife and I decided to seize an outdoor dining patio seat and enjoy the Tennessee weather. The patio was tucked behind the restaurant and next to a creek. The lighting was perfect to... More

I was there with a friend and it was late looking for somewhere to eat that wasn't a chain restaurant and happened upon this place. We thought we would give it a try when we walked in the restaurant was basically empty and the hostess asked if we wanted to sit outside and of course we did and had the... More

We like the Wild Boar as it looks like a old time bar. Great drinks and good prices. You can also eat at the bar which is nice. Outside seating with a view of the creek is nice. Great bartenders. Always a good time.

Thank txlnstr
