“Howley’s Restaurant isn’t gay in the sense of a Mad Hatter flying rainbow flags for all to see but it’s very gay in its sensitivity to the outré, from its menu of the plebian to the exotic, reasonable prices, quality preparation, presentation and efficient servers – many (most?) with extensive body art. A full bar is available to enjoy with a meal.
The restaurant was opened as a diner in 1950 by Patrick Howley. The Subculture Group bought it in 2004, adding it to a stable of restaurants from Miami to West Palm Beach owned by Rodney Mayo. He restored a number of its historical features like terrazzo floors and tin ceilings.
Local artists are invited to display their work in the restaurant, and permanent murals by Amanda Valdez of cartoon wait staff are featured on the outside.”
