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

Food was great and our server took great care of us. Highly recommend this restaurant, everyone in our party enjoyed their entrees and everything was reasonably priced. Try the crab/shrimp dip as an appetizer!

We found Shug's searching for a new place to try and we were not disappointed. It is a very nice atmosphere (little dark tho) and very good and nice servers. The food is awesome and have a good selection of things to chose from. The ribs are really good and the boom boom shrimp is the greatest. My daughter really... More

We arrived around 6pm on a Friday, and the place wS already hopping. We were seated in the back room, near the bar. The only complaint I have is the room temperature. We were both so cold. Fortunately, our server was so very friendly, and tried to accommodate us by turning off the fans. The food was warm, the meats... More
