Love this rustic restaurant! Me and my husband go quite frequently. Love the BBQ brisket sandwich and homemade fries!! The saysR on the brisket is scrumptious!! Fried green tomatoes are great too! Haven't had anything on the menu yet that wasn't delicious!!

Brisket sandwich is good and a good value. They serve peanuts in the shell like a Texas Road house. Fries were good as well

This place was very busy and ALWAYS is! So I am going to say we must have hit them on a not so good night or ordered the wrong thing. I ordered broiled fish......not so good. A bit fishy and overcooked. Vegies that came with it were brutally overcooked. My husband ordered a steak, lots of fat and overcooked as... More

We eat at Shugs at least twice a week and sometimes much more! Their specials are great, as well as, everything else on the menu. We love the brisket, chicken philly, boom boom shrimp, collards, and spring chicken salad.

Shug's was recommended by someone and I had read all the previous reviews. Awesome restaurant! My eyes were bigger than my stomach and had to take a doggie bag. Ribeye was cooked well and the garlic mashed potatoes are soooo good. My mother got flounder and oysters and she loved it. She wanted to go back a second night!

Went there because of the good reviews but was very disappointed. Prime rib was lukewarm and tough as shoe leather. Salmon was overcooked and dry. Service was slow. Will not be going back.

I rated this visit as Average and that was being generous. Three of us dined at Shug's for dinner. My wife and I have been her twice before and were very well pleased with the beef brisket, loaded potatoes, salads, etc. So this time I decided to try the crab cakes. Mistake!! They were in my opinion mostly cake with... More

Simple on the outside. Inside, wood booths for an outdoorsy feel. Our group of four, tow adults and two young adults had a great meal. Service was prompt even tho the place was crowded with diners. Most seemed like local folk with a ll the greeting among staff and other patrons. The menu offered a great variety at good price.... More

We love the food and enjoy the atmosphere. Peanuts in a bucket on the table. Eat and discard peels on the floor. If you like meat, this is the place to go. They have some typical southern dishes like fried green tomatoes and some exotic stuff like frog legs. It is a bit of a drive as this isn't close... More
