I don't like giving a local business a bad review but I also would regret someone to visiting Flip Flops and having a sub-par meal and service. Flip Flops is the only eatery in Holden that I would not recommend on any level. It's more a bar than a restaurant and they've now crammed a bakery section into the space... More

We stop there for a drink once in a while but had never eaten there. We finally tried it and it was disappointing.Everything was just meh. Plenty of other pub style restaurants in the area. We wont be returning to eat. We still do stop in for drinks

Flip flops is a great place to pop in and enjoy a drink. The food is always good. They keep reinventing themselves

I've been going here since it was called Al Fresca and was in the space in the pink building where there were only 4 tables. This is my go to place for pizza. Definitely top notch. My wife is gluten free and has never had an issue. same with my 6 year old twin picky eaters.

Flip Flops is always busy! My husband and I are never disappointed with the food, including the pizza, salads, and entrees. Love the Wedge salad and the Black Forest Pizza. Lots of beers, friendly service and a fun atmosphere. Our first meal was here as we were house hunting and honestly, it helped us fall in love with Holden. We... More

Being new residents we decided to try Flip Flops for takeout pizza based on some good reviews. To be fair, it was ready when promised, had a good NY style thin crust, and a favorable tomato sauce. The pepperoni was your average very thin slices, but I asked for extra garlic, thinking it would be fresh garlic. The only detectable... More

Menu is above and beyond what you would find at a typical pub or bar. Unique specials and delicious pizzas. Very attentive and friendly service. Decent prices.

Flip Flops never lets you down, yes you may have to wait a short time, but it is worth it. A great restaurant for a fun night away from the children, or a great night with the children. Nick and his staff, always make you feel welcome and at home on the beach. The food is always well presented and... More

We have been here now for many times as nearby Holdon residents, almost every sunday. I'm a picky foodie, and I have to say, for a kind of small town grill & bar restaurant, the dishes are pretty good and tasty. I had almost now everything from the menu, bison burger, winter haddock, salmon, steak tips, winter squash ravioli, ribs,... More
