Great location to relax. Food was ok but this is more of a drinks and scenery spot in my opinion. Popular place.

We ate there twice -- the first time it was balmy enough to eat in the main covered dining room which has large open windows. The second time it was cold outside, and the only interior space they have is very tiny, and that night that small room was even colder than the main dining room. The windows in the... More

We ate here multiple times on our vacation. The food was great. The seafood was fresh. Staff was courteous and a great view! We look forward to going back again soon.

This little bar and grill serves so-so food, but the atmosphere is great. We visited twice during our week-long stay at Holden Beach and loved it's second floor location with open sides for the ocean breezes and friendly staff. The food was just OK but if you're looking for a place to hang out on a rainy day or take... More

The bar is featured, but there were mostly families eating dinner while I was there. Bands play often, but there was no band the evening I visited. I ordered grouper and a sweet potato.

He said if you can only get one shrimp burger in Holden Beach skip this one and go to Provision. It was a little pricy... More

We ate dinner and my wife had a half pound of hot peel and eat shrimp that were very sweet, tender, and fresh. I had the shrimp and grits and the grits were cooked correctly and there were shrimp, and what appeared to be bacon. Not all that tasty but they were good. We both had small Caesar salads which...

We ate here twice. The food was acceptable but not great. Tried it again because most eateries were closed on Sunday. Just average.
