Howard’s Café and Catering is the newest kid on the block in Savannah, Mo. Owners Leigh and Carl Neinstedt are excited to introduce their restaurant to the community. J. Howard’s will stand out among the rest thanks to their unique menu offers choices that are sourced from local farmers and other businesses in the community. This means customers will experience new menu items that are fresh and seasonal each time they visit. They can also expect a regular menu of favorites like burgers and ribs, along with weekly specials.

The Nienstedts know that a family-friendly restaurant will be just the place for their community to gather for great company and delicious food.

The business opens with great anticipation from Leigh and Carl, who both have many years in the restaurant business. They have long dreamed of the day they could provide a space for friends and family to gather together and have worked many months to make that dream a reality.

“My favorite saying is “Clear eyed souls and hearts never lose,” and to me, that means people who want something bad enough can make it happen because they believe in it,” commented Leigh.
