Howard’s Pub and Raw Bar and Restaurant

1175 Irvin Garrish Highway, Ocracoke
(252) 928-4441

Fun, funky and casual, Howard's serves lunch and dinner every day from early spring until late fall. Fresh, local seafood from the Pamlico Sound is the highlight, but there are also steaks, ribs, burgers, salads, sandwiches and soups worth ferrying in for (and many do). Sit indoors in the air-conditioned dining room, at the long wooden bar, out on the expansive screened porch with circling ceiling fans or on the rooftop deck. The bar features more than 100 bottled beers from around the world plus 24 craft beers on tap, wine and signature cocktails. Kids have their own menu with the meals served on a Frisbee, emphasizing the family-friendly nature of this popular spot. Multiple televisions, the infamous ring hook, Foosball and wall-to-wall memorabilia make Howard's Pub a legendary spot for food and fun for all ages.
