''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!!!...''
''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....''
''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 took 17 people to eat here after we were married. We didn't reserve the private room, we just made a reservation and ate in the main dinning area on a Monday evening. There is not one thing bad we can say about the service, they even gave us two servers. And everyone enjoyed thier food. I no this because nobody really had room for cake. We'll eat here again....''
''This is the first thing we ordered and they were great. My Ahi Tuna salad was also fresh and tasty. Trish, the waitress was very attentive to our needs. Meet one of the owners, very friendly Can't wait to go back....''
''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...''
''we made our annual myrtle beach trip with 12 guys over labor day weekend. Four of us stumbled upon the sugar shack on Friday night. We had some great appetizers the crap friiters were especially tasty with the lime flavored dipping sauce. For dinner we all had the ribs which buy all accounts were the best ribs we have ever had, the side of fries and cole slaw were also unbelievable. We had such a good meal we brought the rest of our group back the following night, and all 12 of us ordered th...''

''Pretty average. Good food, but limited. We have eaten breakfast and lunch here several times. Service and atmosphere okay. Nothing to set it apart from other places. Sometimes it is a quick place to eat and run, sometimes not....''
''I loved the feel of this family owned restaurant! Everyone was very friendly and the service was top notch. The view looks out on a dock with fishing boats, just to add to the wonderful experience. The food was also excellent. There were a variety of options and although lots of the food is fried, you can order it broiled as well at no extra charge. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a laid back and delicious place to eat!...''

''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....''
''Slightly upscale dinning with many offerings including seafood, Italian and LARGE special pizzas. After you earned your tan and good food is first on the list, this is a great place to sit and finish off the day. No reservations and usually busy during the season... Nice bar for about 15 people. Large tables’ available. Food is very good and the menu specials change often… BANG, BANG Shrimp is awesome....''
''We go there about once every two weeks when we are snowbirding in Sunset Beach. Not a Seafood Place but a full menu for all tastes. My wife enjoys the salads and I like the Hurricane Chicken and the prime Rib. Bar section a little noisy during peak hours when you are seated there to eat but overall a good dining 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....''

''The staff at Jumpin' Java is wonderful, always smiling, helpful and EVERY time I return they remember what I ordered - both mine and my husband's order, to be exact! They are a GREAT espresso stop!...''
''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....''
''We eat here about every other week and are generally very pleased. The service can sometimes be hit or miss, but the food is always very good. My favorite is the Cuban, and my son and I always enjoy the wings. It's the only place my wife will drink the sweet tea (not overly sweet and always fresh)....''
''Waited nearly an hour at the bar for a table. The hostess was brain dead. Never will get to try the food. We went to another place and had a great meal. Management needs a lesson on social skills....''
''Since the new ownership change, everything has gone down hill...they've taken out the saltwater fish tank, and sealed shut the windows at the bar! The ambience is gone. Sadly, cheers to what was one of the best local hang outs....''
''Great pizza! We've been going to Joey O's every summer since it opened. We love it! You can't get great pizza like that anywhere else in NC. My husband especially loves the Meat Lovers. It is piled high with meats and it's a huge pizza! Just their cheese pizza is fabulous! Definitely recommend it....''
