Diners can also clear their plates on the outdoor patio, where they can take in fresh air and enjoy serenades from birds and meandering jackhammers.
Howlett's restaurant and tavern
Joe Helbing captained Howlett's tavern for 13 years before deciding to explore a new career path, only to discover he missed the clink of beer glasses and the chatter of happy guests. Having reaffirmed his passion for the restaurant biz, Joe reopened his restaurant, where he continues to serve the original Howlett's memorable menu of steak-house favorites.
Deep in the kitchen, chefs grill a variety of hand-cut steaks, ribs, and fresh seafood dishes. To craft their signature crab cakes, they season fresh lump crab with a savory rémoulade. Come lunchtime, they turn their attention to making thick paninis and hearty burgers and shaking their fists at the relentless midday sun. Guests linger over last sips of cocktails and final bites of housemade pecan pie at tables that speckle the spacious dining room.
