lt was enjoyable sitting at a table on the covered porch - shady and a little breezy to cool us down and fun to watch the passing parade in the street outside. There are also outside tables but it was rather hot in the sun. And in the inside rooms, the music was too loud. Very attentive waitress and we... More

The food was awesome, but most importantly the service was amazing. Mike was our server. He was nice, friendly, and honestly made my whole day. The GM also came over and talked to us because he had the time. It was a great experience.

Cute island place with good island flavor. However we were a group of 10 and they lost our reservation. But were able to see us together. I had the Crab Cakes and New England Claim Chowder. It was pretty good, but not anything I would go back for. Some of our group had prime rib and were really pleased. Then... More

I live in Carolina Beach and hadn't eaten at Havanas in years; now I remember why. Simply, the food is not good and the price is high. When I go to a bar type restaurant, I understand I will not be getting a 5 star dining experience; however, when I pay $9 for lobster bisque, I expect it to be... More

Always a favorite for lunch . Bison burger very tasty. Requested shrimp be sautéed instead of fried. Good flavor. But would have preferred it be done with regular shrimp. Not popcorn shrimp WAIT STAFF IS ALWAYS Great!!! Christine is the best and does a great job with plate decoration for the key lime pie which is the real thing!

Sunday brunch at Havana's for us was a truly memorable experience. The menu choices covered a wide variety of dishes. Our food was served in a timely manner, nicely presented and most of all tasted great. Our server, Dan, was very personable and picked up on the humor at our table very quickly. Would give this visit six stars.

Havana's is NOT the usual hastily prepared food you would find in a beach vacation environment... we had the salmon/crab cake dinner with perfectly cooked spinach and a gourmet rice. My date commented that the fish was cooked perfectly and the crab cake is very flavorful! The crab cakes were highly recommended by my friend who suggested I should definately... More

Walked in and we were greeted right away.. The booth was nice the menu was just what we were looking for.. Eating on the beach is hard (a lot of fried frozen crappy food) but this was real food! Healthy choices and a nice staff ... We quickly received our food and our waitress Kenna was polite and quick and... More
