Very nice experience

We had an excellent dinner here and the food and service was excellent. I had scallops and my wife had the Guinesss chicken? I would go back in the future.

We own a beach house in Kure Beach. This is the best restaurant in the area. Food is excellent- the local grouper and Atlantic salmon are super fresh- to die for. Great bread and caesar salad. Our service in mid-June was excellent, but we arrived at 7, just as it was beginning to get crowded. Like a lot of local... More

Went here with my family and it was a mixed bag. I got the steak tips, but because the sizes were so inconsistent, none were cooked the same. My husband ordered a salad and the kitchen forgot the greens (??) and his salad came out 10 minutes after the rest of our meals. The waitress kept asking if we were... More

Went for a date night, and the prime rib was cold, scallops rubbery and cold, and the staff could have cared less that we were there. Maybe it was because it was the off season...but we are locals and haven't been back and have heard similar experiences from others.

The service was VERY nice and accommodating. We made a reservation and called to tell them we were running late and they held the table for us! The server we had was interactive and fun however the food was about average. While the fish was fresh and had great flavor (especially the wasabi horseradish tuna dish), the risotto on all... More

It's a very average place. They want to seem posh and fancy but it's just an illusion. The food isn't bad per say, it's just they use "Kens steak house' dressings.......and American cheese for their burgers........not nice quality....... The kids menu has fries for EVERYSIDE! Heaven forbid they may want a vegetable of some sort. The service is good however.....friendly... More

We tried Havana's summer of 2014. It is also on my One and Done list for places in Carolina Beach. The food was okay but some of the menu a bit over priced. I feel like they are trying too much to be a more fine dining spot than they ought to be. The Conch Fritters were excellent. This past... More
