Wonderfully delicious food

We were amazed at the taste of the food we had here. The only down side is we felt the entrees were priced about $5 higher than they should be. Nonetheless, we will definitely go again to celebrate something.

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you step in the doors, you are blown away. Very well decorated, wonderful atmosphere, great bar area, and a large upstairs dining area that is perfect for groups. Great alcohol selection, good bartenders and servers, and large menu. I was with a large group when I visited and everything... More

We arrived late and they were near closing but the staff told us to come on in. They said they would be there another hour cleaning up so if we didn't mind....come on in and order. I was hesitant as I hate imposing on people at the end of the day but they insisted it was no problem. We went... More

By far the best clam chowder I have ever tasted! It almost caused a fight, since my wife was daring enough to try to eat more than her half of our bowl. ha! We also enjoyed the Crab-stuffed Salmon and the Shrimp and Grits. Both meals were very tasty and did not leave us hungry. Turned out to a wonderful... More

The food was tasty but the menu promised shrimp, lobster and grits. There was no lobster on the plate. We ask the waitress about the lack of lobster, she informed us the sauce was a lobster bisk and the plate does not include lobster. Funny but the lunch price was around 14 dollars. This menu item really misled the customer.... More

Attended a wedding rehearsal dinner for 30 people at Havana's. We were seated on the covered and enclosed deck which offered plenty of space to move around, and still had the feeling of being outside, which was nice as the weather was great. The service was impeccable. The staff really goes the extra mile to ensure you have everything you... More

We ended up here after trying to go out for dinner with our visiting family on a holiday weekend without a reservation,not a smart move on our part. All popular restaurants in the area we tried had an hour or two wait, but when we arrived at Havana's the place seemed too empty for a Saturday night, a few customers... More
