RE: Bolivia & Holden Beach NC
YES, Calabash definitely! I grew up about 1-2 hrs. from there and have tried most of the restaurants. Any of those on the water and the road leading to it are good. Beck's was one of the originials-closed now, I think. I was at Capt. John's a few months ago and the hushpuppies were super.
Skip those "all you can eat or buffets" on the main road-go toward the water where most of the original places are.
Good eating-wish I was there.
