Yummy Cajun / Southern cuisine

This is a unique place serving good food and an interesting decor. It's like taking a trip to Louisiana. The food and service were good. This is our second visit, it was as good as our first. Decent pricing, ample portions, diverse variety. All good.

It was nice to see a Nawlins themed restaurant in Astoria. We visit The Crescent City X2 yearly and have grown to love its cuisine. Sugar Freak focuses on the down home style, trumpeting its po boys, muffalettas, boudin balls, gumbo, and fried shrimp, chicken and oysters. Both the fried chicken and beer can chicken are solid and tasty. The... More

Everyone working here was hospitable and friendly. The crawfish bisque was delicious but expensive, imo. My friends were also remarking about how yummy the chicken and dumplings were.

We had a variety of things but dessert to die for was the fried banana pudding recommended by waitress. Wow would never picked it but best, unbelievably good. We loved classic fried chicken, blacken catfish dish and beignet chicken sliders. We had other things but not exceptional like previously mentioned things. Great funky decor look at bathroom so cute and... More

Waitress was disinterested and unfriendly problems with the food were resolved by other staff. Food was brought out and checked by other staff. Items asked for from the waitress did not arrive. Unforgivably bad waitress. The food was ok nothing special. Don't believe the hype and certainly do not wait a long time to be seated. It's not worth it.

I am a huge fan of New Orleans food. And to find something local like in Astoria was great. We went here based on the menu - not any reviews or ratings just the menu. SCORE!!!!!!!! The restaurant is airy and divy looking. The staff is friendly and patient. Their menu is large and there is a lot to choose... More

I walked in at 5pm right as the doors opened and was waiting to meet my best friend to celebrate my birthday early. The staff was so friendly and I was immediately greeted by our waitress, Annie. We laughed about our Disney cast member days and I was made to feel welcome while I waited. What a wonderful beautifully decorated... More

After we returned from a few days in New Orleans a couple of months ago, we were missing charbroiled oysters, po boys etc., so I searched online for a NY restaurant with these delicacies. Found Sugar Freak and decided we had to give it a try. It didn't disappoint. Very funky decor, pleasant and helpful wait staff, extensive menu and... More

I liked this restaurant because there aren't many in Astoria. The gumbo was really good. Catfish po boy was the right choice!
