“Good Food / Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We ate a late lunch at Havana's. It was an easy walk from our hotel and the hotel front desk recommended the restaurant. Food was good, atmosphere ( an early 1900s cottage)was quaint and service was fantastic....Servers were very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the area. We would recommend.

“Great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We stumbled on this place by accident but really enjoyed it. Food was awesome and the service was even better. The bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer is amazing. It's a bit pricey but well worth it for an exceptional meal.

“Excellent chowder!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Don't miss the chowder and the Mojitos! We stopped in this restaurant during a walking tour. The owner was from New England and knows how to make amazing chowder. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. We will definitely go back on our next trip to the area.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Try the chowder, avoid the tortellini. The paella was good (not as good as being in Spain though). If you stay with basic seafood you can't go wrong! Service was friendly and attentive.

“Go for the Chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Went here on the Tasting History tour and had the Clam Chowder. It was amazing. My husband and I usually are not fans of chowder, but we both LOVED this! If you are visiting Carolina Beach, getting this chowder is a must!
