The Seafood Bake & Coca Cola steak tips were delicious. They have a great martini menu & wine list. Don't skip the desserts, the chocolate mousse and blueberry granola cheesecake were fabulous.

Have been to Carolina Beach for four years now while visiting our daughter in Wilmington. We decided to try Havanas and had a nice meal. Atmosphere nice and food was well presented. Agree with a previous statement that portions are on the smaller scale but all were FRESH and tasty. Did see several other items on the menu that make... More

Once seeing this place online, i had to go try the pulled pork nachos. They did not disappoint. The clam chowder was excellent also.

Our family decided, last minute, to eat here. The consensus, children and adults, was not to return. The food and service left a lot to be desired. We felt the food was over priced and not that flavorful. Our waiter did the absolute minimum the entire time. In the end, we wish we had opted for another restaurant due to... More

Food was good quality. Atmosphere was good, but a little cramped. Service was not the best. We were seated at the bar, even though we requested a booth & there were several empty. Later, we were offered a table, and given the explanation that the kitchen was behind. Mixed drinks were very good.

Menu is a little pricy but salmon stuffed with crab was good. Fried shrimp platter was ok- shrimp on the small side. Shoe-string fries were amazing! Kids menu terrific. Would go back for sure.
