I was not very impressed with the food here. Now on the other hand my husband and mother enjoyed their meals. I had the flounder and it was nothing special. It had the skin left on it, which I hate! My husband had the scallops casino and loved it. My mother had the coca-cola steak tips. She also enjoyed her... More

This place has great outdoor seating and it is a good place to go with young kids that might be a little loud, which is nice. The only issue is that the food is very expensive for the area, $13 for a burger, $27 for the fresh fish, $13 for a salad.

Great place to grab a bite to eat at. They have a nice variety of food and drinks to choose from that are reasonably priced. There is indoor, outdoor and patio seating. There is also some corn hole boards for a little fun. I recommend trying the bison burger and a bloody marry!

As soon as we got there we were nearly certain that it would be a nice experience and we were correct. Our waiter was great and was very familiar with the menu. Clam chowder is their specialty and I had a cup and would recommend it. My wife had a salad the was cold, crisp and big. For my main... More

What a very nice late lunch we had when we were on vacation. The service was excellent and we sat outside on a beautiful sunny day! Their bisque is to die for and the shrimp and grits were outstanding! I would highly recommend a stop here!

We went over to Carolina Beach to see the new boardwalk and look around. Decided to try Havana's for lunch. It is set off the beach in an old house. Interiors are well done and it is an attractive place to dine. Outdoor decks are very nice, even without a view of the ocean. Service was excellent on a recent... More

Came here for lunch. Drinks were great and bartender was a lot of fun to talk to. I had the club sandwich with cranberry slaw. Both were fantastic. The manager, (Pete I think) came over and talked to me for a while. All around great experience. Friendly staff with great food and drinks. Definitely recommend.
