Howard's Pub & Raw Bar on Ocracoke Island

Howard’s Pub is a fun and casual restaurant on Ocracoke Island, NC, serving both locals and visitors for more than 30 years. Open every day for lunch and dinner from early Spring to late Fall, Howard’s offers a full menu featuring fresh local seafood, oysters both fried and on the half shell, chargrilled steaks and fish, juicy burgers, salads, sandwiches and more. Vegetarian and gluten-free items are available. Enjoy the succulent, peel-and-eat steamed shrimp and other munchies at the expansive wooden bar, on the airy screened porch with ceiling fans or in the air-conditioned dining room. Sit back, relax and enjoy panoramic island views on the sky deck, where you can experience getting into an “Ocracoma.” The pub serves the same menu all day long so you can satisfy your appetite with a wide array of offerings throughout the day. Kids’ meals are served on take-home Frisbees along with a “sippee” cup.

Adults can sip on tasty libations, including a craft and domestic bottled brew or one of the 12 drafts from North Carolina and beyond in a frosty pint glass. Howard’s serves a variety of thirst-quenching specialty cocktails, including frozen margaritas and daiquiris, along with premium liquor and wine. Families and large groups are always welcome. The décor is eclectic with college pennants, neons, license plates and memorabilia sprinkled throughout the restaurant. Parking is plentiful for bicycles, golf carts or cars. Find us on Highway 12 just outside the village.

The crew at Howard’s Pub looks forward to welcoming you to their little corner of island paradise!
