Had chowder and lobster/shrimp casserole. Very small portions, especially for the prices charged. Food was good but expected more quality/quantity. Waitress was very nice and attentive.

We walked down to the boardwalk during our stay in Carolina Beach and stopped here for lunch. Was a little worried that it might be expensive but was surprised that it wasn't. Our family (3 of us) had a chicken sandwich, empanadas and a wrap and was about $9-$12 a piece. Not too bad, about what you'd pay at a... More

My friend recommended this restaurant to me and I was not disappointed. The food, atmosphere, and drinks were amazing. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and our visit. I heard some complaining about the prices; however, you get what you pay for and it is worth the price. We would definitely return for another dinner experience.

We had dinner on a Saturday evening. We arrived at 6pm and were seated promptly. We were taken upstairs and my only complaint is that our party of four was jammed in next to a party of eight when the other side of the room (which was 12 feet away from us - this is a former house) sat empty... More

the fish was fresh, the service good......seating outside, inside...and my favorite the porch to the right. Live music on the lawn completed the experience

We intended to try the higher rated Shuckin Shack but needed a table for 7 which wasn't going to happen so we went across the street to Havana's. I was pleasantly surprised by the food quality and service. The calamari appetizer was especially good. Both bar and table service was excellent and the patrons warm and friendly.

A friend and I went to Carolina Beach for the morning and went to Havana's for lunch. We were not disappointed! Service, atmosphere and martinis were great. I had the tuna with clam chowder and enjoyed both. The chowder was the best I've had and the tuna was fresh & filling. My friend had a seafood salad and was very... More

I got the opportunity to visit this place on business in August with a colleague. It was suggested by the staff at the Courtyard Marriott. Excellent place! We were seated outside on the patio - it was not crowded there on the day we went, but I bet there is a long wait on other occasions. We got the French... More

I had the crab cakes and a delicious sangria to drink. Although the food portion could have been a bit larger for the price, it was absolutely delicious and I ate every last bite! Waiter was attentive. However, we did cancel our dessert since service was slow. Atmosphere was fun but still classy. Central location was perfect! If we ever... More

This was absolutely the best place on the island to have a wedding reception. We had the upstairs reserved and could not have asked for a better set-up. Our delicious meal was served to us by John whom took care of our every need. We were so impressed with him that we went back to Havana's on 2 more nights... More
