I was so excited for this place. Their menu made me dream and drool. What exciting things they have listed. Unfortunately execution didnt pan out. We started with the popcorn alligator. Which were tiny little pieces of alligator mixed in with bigger pieces of potato chips. I felt a little ripped off by this. The cornbread waffle was pretty dry... More

I met friends for brunch here. Cocktails got high marks- great Pimms Cup, Spicy Bloody Mary, and a perfect Sazerac. Daily specials got our stomachs growling, with a killer crawfish bisque that was absolutely to die for. We binged on fresh blue point oysters, muffalettas, etoufee and jambalaya. I was only sad I didn't have enough room for a plate... More

We have eaten here quite a few times for brunch. The food and drinks are consistently good. The service is warm and friendly. In talking to the owner, we learned that all of the decorations are made from recycled materials. The light fixtures are super cool! Our favorite meal is the fried chicken, which we had tonight. The meal includes... More

Comfort food and ambiance abound here. Enjoy the plethora of bayou tasties: blackened catfish, po'boys, jambalaya, etouffee, waffles (stuffed, or not, with gravy, or not), biscuits (ditto), pecan-vinaigrette-dressed salad, deep fried popcorn okra, served in its own frying basket, mac 'n cheese, served in a person-sized. cast iron frying pan, chicken, served with cinnamon sugar, chili honey (there's that sugar...

The decor, setting and ambience is point on. They make you feel as if you were in a small town Louisiana Diner. The crowd is lively and they have a slurry of cocktails, Drinks and beers on tap to meet any appetite. The menu is southern and serves all the traditional cooking that you would imagine in the South. That... More

Came here for lunch with a group of 2 and we were immediately seated. No issues in getting a seat. For appetizer we ordered the popcorn alligator. I thought it would be interesting to try alligator meat but we were quite disappointed. The meat didn't taste "gamey" at all. It kind of tasted like popcorn chicken. They also served it... More

Was here for dinner, and SO glad we spontaneously stopped here rather than treeing on for a different restaurant. The restaurant boasts cajun/creole style food which was a big draw for me. I love the layout of the restaurant - it has its own cool and comfy vibe. The service was fantastic, everyone who came to our table was super... More

There were a bunch of drink and food options. The prices were fairly reasonable, the service great, and the food fresh. I plan to go back next weekend! Be aware, it can get quite packed due to its popularity.

I was pleasantly surprised by SugarFreak. I really liked the decor as it is not very typical for NY. The first thing that is a must here is the Bloody Mary - it is slightly spicy and seasoned to perfection! The second thing you should not miss is the Alligator bites - they do taste like chicken but much more... More
