Great food

My husband and I came her for lunch..and the food and atmosphere was so good we came back for dinner. Should you go, make sure you taste the Shrimp and Grits. The staff were kind and courteous as well.

The price isn't the problem, it's having to take my husband to McDonald's afterward because he wasn't full. He ordered the lobster bake and it came in a dish that was maybe 3X4 and Had 2 pieces of lobster in it. I ordered the prime rib, and thought it was very bland. I really loved the atmosphere though. We walked... More

We spent New Year's Eve having a wonderful dinner in a secluded, private room in Havana's. Very romantic! The service was great, the food was superb and my wife and I had a fantastic time.

My wife and her cousin decided to go searching for cottages on Kure Beach on New Year's Day. I wasn't expecting to find much open for lunch along the way, but there was Havana's Fresh Island Seafood in that nice looking Arts and Crafts house, a historical one, by the way, open for business. We pulled into the parking lot,... More

We have been here several times over the last 3 years. There's a reason for that. First off, the Staff is so friendly and they KNOW their menu. I'm a huge fan of customer service. We spent our New Year's Eve there and the food was on point in EVERY WAY. OMG! I got the sea bass special, and my... More

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

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.
