''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!!!...''
''We ate here I think our third night in town. My husband had the most delious mackerel with a yummy sauce on it. I had the steamed seadfood platter which was the special. My daughter had crablegs and son had kids' shrimp. We can't wait to come back next year ! A place you definitely want to go on the beach!...''
''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)....''
''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....''
''My family has a house at Sunset and going to How Sweet It Is is definitely a tradition for us. The ice cream is delicious and the owner is incredibely friendly. I go to college across the state and the few times a year that i get to make it to the beach is indeed rare. I always make it a point to stop by the ice cream shop where the owner constantly remembers our names and asks us how school is. The service and ice cream are outstanding and i wouldn't trade it for anything, it's a trademark of...''
''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....''

''The atmosphere was okay and the one (and only) waitress did her best to provide reasonably good service, but regrettably these were the high points of the meal. My wife ordered the 5 oz. filet mignon, which is expected to be tender and one of the better cuts of beef. It was dry and very tough. The side dish, spaghetti, at a place that calls itself an Italian restaurant, was unfortunately nothing more than noodles covered with a very bland (probably canned) tomato sauce. The common pasta dish...''
''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....''
