My boyfriend and I had visited New Orleans in June, loved the food, and talked about how much we missed it. He did some digging and found Sugar Freak and it's like being back in the French Quarter. The blackened catfish with crawfish etouffee is delicious and you have to try the chicken beignet sliders! Bring your appetite and enjoy!

This Astoria eatery has an attractive storefront to capture your attention and the interior is rustic-looking which captures a real feel of the New Orleans experience. I found ample parking on the street on a Thursday evening. Had the chicken & sausage gumbo with white rice as an appetizer which I found to be a little spicy which is just... More

Stopped in for a bite with two of our sons in August 2016. Don't be fooled by the name or the exterior. This place has some awesome New Orleans dishes. From PO-Boys to Crawfish to chicken and waffles. We started with apps, Pop Corn Alligator, Roasted Oysters and a Mac an Cheese Beignet Slider. Our Waiter Colin was outstanding the... More

This is my favorite restaurant. Everything is great here from the char-broiled oyster, the jumbalaya to the benets. I highly recomend the blackened cat fish with craw fish ettoufet. and all types of oysters and fried chicken and jumbalaya. This is a must try restaurant for all.

Came back for brunch today. The name Sugar Freak is strange considering they serve so much more than sugary foods. However, a meal here is well worth splurging on once in a while.

If you like delicious, fattening, huge brunches, this Louisiana type brunch place is just for you. Delicious food, fun decor and considering the crowds, good service. One negative- no reservations so you will always wait for a table.

Thinking this was mostly a "Cajun" restaurant, I told my wife we were going to a Southern restaurant so she wouldn't go into panic mode - turns out that it is both - we got blackened shrimp, fried chicken and waffles and chicken - all pretty much what we can get at dozens of places near us in NC. Everything... More

The food we had was average, the waffles were soft, not crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the chicken was dry so much that I had to dip it in the syrup. Speaking of syrup... when you pay almost $20 for a waffle and a piece of chicken you would expect the syrup to be served warm,... More

This place does the best Cocktails I have had in New York. Ask for.the Hurricane. Also has great southern food and some real interesting bits such as Popcorn fried Aligator. The staff are really nice and there is a fantastic atmosphere.
