Six dollar well drinks and a great happy hour menu. The a bowl of mussels was $5 dollars and delicious. Bar tenders were good. And right on the boardwalk.

Cubacan has delicious food with a spanish accent. It is on the boardwalk in Asbury Park so in nice weather you can sit outside with an ocean view. The staff is very friendly. A good choice of wine is available as well.

Great atmosphere, fast (& friendly) service, delicious food! Cocktails were strong but well balanced - they weren't watered down with fruit juice. Must try the black bean soup, octopus, and paella. View of the ocean tops off the experience!

Just posted a photo of the cocktail menu to Cubacan's site. Not sure how long it takes to appear. Enjoy!

Since specials change probably on a daily basis, you would need to contact the restaurant for that information.
