“We loved it!!!!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We chose this restaurant because it is my daughter's middle name lol. The rolls were great and the butter served with it was amazing!! I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was so delicious!! The grits were a cake-type rather than regular and it was very nice twist on a regular shrimp and grits dinner. My daughter ordered the Coca-Cola steak and it was phenomenal!!!

“Andy is A-ok”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

What a sweetie ! When gals come in for a happy hour and sit at the bar it's comforting to know a kind soul is serving you .

We chatted as the $5 appetizers kept coming-what a deal. Calamari..shimp.. Sadly no more crab dip specials ..or drink deals during happy hr.

But, getting back to Andy. Rumor has it this handsome guy (who boasts buns of steel) is available. Go check him out ..and tell 'em Janice sent you!

Their second location in Wilmington is every bit as good as the Carolina Beach restaurant. Great food at a good price!.

“I can't believe they did that!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Sunday, after a matinee show at a local theater, our group of eight went to Havana's for supper. The wives had been there before, raved about the food, and wanted to take the husbands. We met the owner at the front and he introduced his wife, who was behind the bar. We went upstairs to our table and our waitress, who was a gem, went right along with our kidding around. By the time our food arrived we noticed we were the only party upstairs. We didn't think too much of it since it was a Sunday evening. Only after we finished our meal did we find out the truth. They are only open for brunch on Sundays this time of year! A mistake was made when they took the reservation but instead of calling us back and canceling THEY KEPT THE ENTIRE RESTAURANT OPEN JUST FOR OUR GROUP!!

Now, having said that, the food was great. I do have to agreed with another reviewer who said that their orzo was clumpy. The crab cakes I had were very good but the orzo....a little clumpy but not tasteless. My wife loved the salmon and their seafood paella is awesome.

From our experience it seems to me that Havana's will do whatever it takes to make the customer happy. That's why we'll be back.
