Lots of fresh fish options and server was super helpful! Fries are not GF due to cross contamination but other options were great!
— Gluten-free items are marked on the main menu
I’ve been coming here for three years now and haven’t gotten sick. This most recent visit I got a cheeseburger with a gf bun and it was delicious. Just beware - the fries are listed as gf on the menu but do not have a dedicate fryer. Would probably be okay for those with a slight intolerance, but not for celiacs.
We have been going to Ocracoke for 15 years and never went to Howard's Pub because it was always packed. Today it was not crowded as we arrived around 2:30 pm. was so excited to see gf on the menu next to quite a few seafood choices. When I queried our waiter on the gf items, he recommended that I stick with the steamed shrimp as they could not guarantee ANY gf item on the menu was truly gf due to the amount of business they do. What?! He said there was so much going on in the kitchen that anyone with true "allergies" should not eat there. I can tell you that the steamed shrimp did not bother this celiac. Oh, and the service SUCKED! They add gratuity automatically, so they know they will get a tip even if they don't have to work for it. Will not be going back. Over priced and overrated. Save your money.
Although they don't have a separate GF menu, there are items marked GF. They were WONDERFUL for me on my week long vacation! The staff was super nice and understanding and I had ZERO reactions at all (like I did at the Jolly Roger!). They also have a GF beer! I've loved Howard's for 20+ years and they continue to be my #1 choice on Ocracoke, even after my celiac disease diagnosis!
Very happy woth this restaurant. All items on menu are noted GF if they are Gluten Free. pub fries-gf! cole slaw, red potatoes, beans & rice, cold bean salad---all gf. plus many entrees, raw bar items and gf hard cidersA fun relaxed place with safe, good food.
