The Coconut shrimp was amazing . Doesn't even need sauce but a tiny dip in the onion ring sauce was yummy! And our service was terrific! Thank you Alena!!

Stopped for lunch and had an excellent crabcake sandwich. Big chunks of crab meat. Staff very friendly. Our server Alena was the best. Very accommodating and sweet. Wish all servers could be as attentive as Alena. Will definitely go back.

Since they asked us and said we could really help them out to get business, I decided to write this review.

We stopped in on a lark and had THE best crab bisque ever! The fried crab cake was wonderful....virtually no filler and great taste. Also, great views from the pier. Wish we had the time to go back!

Dinner was just okay. I had broiled seafood platter it looked good but was very bland. A friend ordered crab balls for appetizer and they had to be sent back as they were very tough on the outside as if frozen and been over cooked. Service was mediocre. Parking lot always full with a wait but not sure why!?

After a long day of site seeing adventures, out camping club stopped for dinner at the recommendation of our Wild Horse Safari guide Outlaw. He did not steer us wrong. Good food good service and large portions. $6 Margarita Monday didn't hurt either.

We live here, and we wait patiently over the winter for our favorites to re-open. Sugar Creek is one of those favorites. Our meal Monday was wonderful as usual. The seafood is always fresh, the portions are generous and the views can't be beat. My wife's crab cake was outstanding, with great lump crabmeat, and my fried shrimp were also... More

Food is above average to really good. Service is great. Our server was Monica and she was perfect. We have had her before and she is always upbeat and friendly. Brought the food out hot and kept the tea glasses full. She is a definite asset to the business. We usually get the Sunday specials and have never been disappointed.
