We went here with a three year old on the recommendation of our hotel. We sat inside the screened porch area. Hostess was very pleasant. Our waitress did a good job but seemed a little preoccupied. The kids food came to the table before our entrees. All the food seemed to come out quick. I think some of the dishes... More

My girlfriend and I stopped in for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. They had a good cocktail list; I had the "Pain Killer" and it was very enjoyable. We had the tuna tartare for an appetizer and it was excellent. I had a very good salad with chicken on it. And we finished the meal with the Bananas Foster -... More

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Havana's. We had the Volcano Shrimp for an appetizer and it was good but not really volcano spicy flavoring. My husband had the Tuna Tortilla and said it was great. I had the Crab Stuffed Salmon and it was very good.

Our second visit (lunch back in November) and food was good, service was attentive, and wine by the glass was on special. I really prefer the lunch menu because there were more unique sandwich offerings but dinner was quite good too (had blackened mahi on salad). During warn weather the front porch is a great dining option.

I saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor and saw it had good reviews. We tried it while we were in town and it was amazing. I had the crab stuffed salmon with spinach and risotto. The crab was more on top than stuffed in the salmon but still delicious. My wife had a vegetarian dish. Good flavor but I liked mine... More

This restaurant is located in a cottage on a corner lot. It is wheelchair accessible. We ordered the house special, tile fish; shrimp and grits; and bison burger, all delightfully delicious and filling. We also enjoyed a wonderful white Ecco Domanti wine from Northern Italy. The hostess was welcoming, hospitable and happy, the waitress was helpful and friendly. The atmosphere... More

We always enjoy Havanna's for every Carolina Beach get away. Great seating on the porch with a talented live musician. Service and food is always excellent.

Atmosphere is great with kid friendly and dog friendly patio that is still really nice. Food is always good too. Wish beer selection was a little more interesting but wine list is solid and we will definitely be back again!
