French dip was good, more like a roast beef grilled cheese.Chicken sando was alright. Not spicy as advertised and asked for pickle in side but hey.The macaroni and cheese actually shocked me. MacNCheese is typically a miss when out to eat. But this was good.Cheese cake was great.Don't waste $ on drinks. Maybe they are better if you sit at the bar.Outside was nice with the river.Kid-friendliness: Chicken tenders, French fries, Mac n cheese.

I was with a group of about 20 that visited Howard's ... we have eaten there on our annual trip to Gatlinburg since 2017 (except 2020). The menu offers a wide price range from the very affordable to expensive. That's one reason we go there every year. Our waitress was very efficient in waiting on our whole group. Although the atmosphere is does not match the quality of food, it is pleasant and clean.

Stopped in for a quick bite to eat. We were quickly seated and waited on. We ordered our meal; the server was polite, explained our options and accurately took our order. The meal came at a typical pace and was what we ordered. No rush eating, drinks refilled. A very pleasant experience.
