Best Diner Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2014 - Howley's Restaurant
When it comes to longevity, this place is king. Sitting at the same West Palm Beach location for more than half a century, Howley's opened its doors the same year the modern credit card came into existence (1950) — who would've thought both would still be so relevant today? While the essence has remained much the same, the spot has had some upgrades since Patrick J. Howley's days; in 2004, Sub Culture Group (owners of Dada, Kapow!, Tryst, and more) took over the property, restoring it to its original glory while bringing in some modern comforts, like a digital jukebox, flat-screen TVs, live music, and, more important, a full bar. Even so, it still boasts diner classics at a price tag that's not going to break the bank — in the 21st Century, anyway — with dishes like steak and eggs ($11.75), Momma's Hot Cakes ($5.95), and country fried steak ($14.95).
