Came here the morning after the Seafood and Jazz Festival for breakfast. The restaurant service is great. Servers are polite. Breakfast menu has a slight slant toward Hispanic cookery. Some omelets included black beans and pico de gallo. The hash browns were a little on the greasy side and could have used less cheese on the omelet, but the side... More

service was great, food was incredible. Sat in the sunshine and had a great bowl of rich seafood chowder followed by most excellent caesar salad.

The best meal of our trip to Carolina Beach was at Havana's! Chowder, shrimp and grits, and BT's chicken were wonderful. Friends raved about their fried shrimp and catfish. Great drinks! Best part of the meal was the smart good service from Stephanie.

Good service and food was delivered quickly. You'll pay a few bucks more but none of our group was disappointed.

I disagree with the most recent reviews about this restaurant. It was the highlight of our 2 night stay in Carolina Beach. The actual building is a historic building with unique qualities that have been enhanced with tasteful decor and photographs. Even the bathroom was very well done. You can eat inside in a booth, table, or in large bar... More

The Menu looks good but the kitchen does not fulfill on the expectations that high prices and attractive print fonts create. Dinner for 3 was $115. The meal was worth $50 tops. Save your money and go elsewhere. The only redeeming qualities are the professional wait staff and the nice outdoor seating.

I expected much better quality food for this price. The service was good but the food was sub par. Absolutely no wow factor in this price range (3 entree's and an appetizer with 2 drinks for $100). When you pay these prices you expect much much more. Tea was old and soured, steak was chewy (poor quality), callimari was dry... More

Havana's was a good meal for the money. We enjoyed sitting on the porch for our meal but some ceiling fans would have been nice. The appetizer was much more food than we expected however the dinner itself left something to be desired in the presentation, quanitity and quality.
