We stopped here for a light lunch. We were immediately seated and orders taken promptly. We orders chowder, Salad Nicoise and a brunch meal. All were absolutely fantastic. This is definitely the best clam chowder Ive ever had. Absolutely the best! Nicoise Salad was fantastic as well as the brunch meals. MUST GO AGAIN !!!!!!

I had the lobster bake and my love had the horseradish tuna and they both were fantastic. Our service was great and we felt very special. If you are in this area you need to eat here. Really cute old house with tables on the porch for dining. 😃😃😃😃

We tried to get into Havana's twice, but the crowds were too large, in February. We thought that might mean it was pretty good. So, the next time we made a reservation...and got in. It was worth waiting for. Havana's is a very good restaurant, but don't be deceived: this not Cuban food. It has good food well cooked, but... More

Havana's hosted my daughter's wedding reception for 24 people in the private room on the second floor. We chose a limited, 3 items menu with Pleasure Island Filet, BT's Chicken and Lobster Seafood Bake - all excellent. Our servers were outstanding and attentive. Adele was helpful with setting up the room as we desired and was very accommodating to our... More

An evening of dining out. A group of 10/11 of friends went out for an evening meal. Each of us ordered off the menu & got separate checks split up by couples. The meals were excellent & were served in a timely manner due to the number of us ordering at the same time.

Really! Everything was fantastic. A must stop place for dinner! We had the fried oysters, fried shrimp, and steak tips. Prepared perfectly, served in a reasonable time frame even as busy as the place was, and they kept our drinks full. Best staff we have ever encountered. Prices were very appropriate.

I had "crispy, fresh shrimp" which was not crispy. The shrimp were small which tells me they were possibly not local and possibly not fresh...maybe fresh frozen. My companion had a vegetable pasta dish, but he complained that it did not have many vegetables in it. The tartar and cocktail sauces were good. I expect better food from an expensive... More

Havana's is one of the best restaurants on the island. The atmosphere is great, the staff is friendly and provide great service. The food is excellent, and I highly recommend the volcano shrimp. Also try their award winning clam chowder. Just a nice place to go especially during the slow season.

Thank Gary S
