Clean the outside of your business and the dining area because this is a reflection of your food prep area. Right now and for more than two years your place looks nasty!!!! Your business has potential please run the whole mile or sale your business!!!! El que no atiende su tienda que la venda!!!

Never had their sandwiches but their milk shakes are excellent and reasonably priced. Treat yourself for dessert here after dining at one of the island's restaurants.

We ate breakfast there and it was good but nothing special. I had eggs bacon and hash browns (over cooked). Wife had western omelette and over cooked hash browns too.

My sisters and I came to the Sugar Shack to grab a quick bite to eat. The owner was very friendly and let us know that the Corned Beef, Roast Beef and Turkey were all done in house. The Reuben sandwich was great, the fries were hot and the Ice Tea cold. A little bit of housekeeping would go a... More

More flavors than I care to count. One scoop is probably 1/2 pound of ice cream. And there are also milk shakes, banana split (3 scoops, so definitively big enough to share). Plus breakfast, lunch and dinner. What's not to love?

My wife and I visited the sugar shack while staying on Tybee for the week. The meal was OK at best. We got the vibe that the staff would rather deal with the locals than visitors to the island.

Creamy ice cream in several flavors and the scoops are so big you only need one! Decor is lacking but the ice cream makes up for it. We sat outside and it was nice. Go, go, go!

This cute little dinner has lots of character and is defiantly a great spot for families. With both indoor and outdoor seating, pet friendly, and great food. I had the omelet and it was awesome. My daughter had a muffin the size of her head and my son and husband both enjoyed the pancakes. Be prepared for a wait as... More

This place is a bit of a dive. That's ok...if the food is good. We stopped in for ice cream...and I expected great ice cream. I guess I'm spoiled. What we got was not premium ice cream. The only premium was the price.

The Sugar Shack was close to where we were staying and much to my surprise offered sugar free ice cream which is a necessity for me. Best sugar free vanilla ice cream I have had. Everyone there was very helpful and friendly.
