''magic mountain water slides always used to be my favorite part of coming to holden beach. but now that i'm older, i realize that it's not that great. there's not really a good pace to sit and relax[unless you like burning hot pastic seats] and the pads you go sliding down are ripped and moldy! ewww! the dipped ice cream is pretty good though. just don't spend your money on the water slid portion!!!...''
''I can't really call this a ''love it or hate it'' place. I eat breakfast here quite often, and end up eating my share of hot dogs and burgers. The staff is unbelievable, but the prices are on the high end of the scale.
As mentioned by a previous reviewer, always buy the deserts! 100% of the money goes to local kids, the Miss Francis' passion....''
''We have been to Holden Beach three times and have always eaten a couple meals at the Seafood Barn. It's great! Last night, my wife and I had the Coconut Shrimp and both kids had the fish. The portions are always large and the food is delicious. The hushpuppies are brought to your table before you order and they are wonderful. We will definitely eat at the Seafood Barn a few more times this week....''

''We look forward to Pardise Cafe when we travel 7 hours to enjoy our annual week in Holden Beach! Coming from a waterfront town, seafood is a staple in our lives but we never get tired of the creative versions of our favorites. We've met the chef several times who is an absolute pleasure! Their crab dip is by far the best I've ever had and I've tried enough to say so! You'd really be missing out if you don't stop in....''
''I had lunch at Archibald's last week and was so excited to see muffelatta on the menu - it is rare to find out here! It was very good. I also had a side of shrimp salad which was also very tasty. Staff was very friendly. Great experience!...''
''This place has a horrible manager. He was really rude. The food was Horrible. There were good waitresses but they were wearing skimpy outfits that shouldn't be acceptable. I will never eat there again....''
''I don't know why we even tried it again. The last two times we've vacationed in Holden Beach, we've eaten at the Seafood Peddler and it was horrible. But...we decided to give it another shot this week and it was even worse than we remembered. The prices are extremely high, even for a buffet. The food is just not good. There is never a crowd there, so that should be a real clue to everyone. We've given this place three chances, but never a fourth....''
''We went her last year on our family vacation and loved it!!! We have three small children and the gobbled up the hushpuppies and loved the gameroom. Service was great and food even better. Portions are great. My oldest son(5 at the time) had a huge chicken sandwich which he got to enjoy agian the nest day for a quick and easy lunch! The views of the intercoastal waterwy are beautiful and the kids like watching the boats pull right up and see the people come in to eat. We will ALWAYS visit h...''
''This place stays busy, even in the off-season! Sean (bartender) is excellent, and the food (once you get a table) is even moreso! The bar is always busy with lots of locals chatting, and leads itself to mingling between locals and tourists.
The husband/wife team that run this place have certainly taken things ''up a notch''. If you don't see it on the menu, try asking -- I rarely eat anything off the menu, and have never once been dissapointed in the 20+ visits over the years....''
''sandman is a cute little icecream shop conveinienntly located at the entrance of holden beach. the snickers ice cream is reaaaallllly good. its a nice place to enjoy the summer beach breeze. check it out!...''
''We went here for breakfast on our way out and boy were we sad! Our breakfast was sooo good,if we would have visited earlier in the week we would have come back several more times. Recommended to us by a local, our breakfast was great. My kids loved the pancakes. Melt in your mouth. We did wait a little while, but it was worth it, those women were cooking up a storm. We noted the drive thru for call in orders and plan to make use of next year. We have only had breakfast, but the local that...''
''Provisions is a must for any visit to Holden Beach! The food & service is outstanding. We were lucky enough to get a window table right on the intercoastal waterway. What a view! Our friend was disappointed when they ran out of clams but was happy with his alternate order. What a surprise when the clams were delivered during dinner and he was treated to free clams. One of the employees remembered and brought them to him....''
