I don't write many critical reviews , it's someone's lively hood and it's easy to criticize. Waffle cone $7.50?? I assumed it would be huge or super good ice cream, it was neither. We had 5 cones of average size and unremarkable quality. Banana split $10??

Had great cones but they were expensive. Place could use a little cleaning up and power washing. Friendly service.

The restaurant has not been very well taken care of, mind you the food was good, nothing to really brag about but sufficient to head home. The man taking orders at the counter must have had a rough night or got up on the wrong side of the bed. The rest of the staff was friendly and doing their best.... More

I decided I wanted an after dinner milkshake and using TripAdvisor selected the Sugar Shack. Not sure what I expected here. Two guys were working and a woman just got off shift. They were worried about a cell phone (lost? missing?). The counter needed wiped and there were some straw wrappers on the floor. The floor was also in need... More

The ice cream is really good but it does seem expensive. Eight dollars for a waffle cone but there is probably over eight ounces of ice cream in it. Make sure you're hungry if you order one.

The ice cream is creamy and tasty. Grandkids were excited about the large selection. The amount of ice cream is a good portion, but expect to pay for the privilege. 2 regular cups full of frozen cream was $9 and some change. It was good and it is Tybee.

My wife and I didn't want to hit anything major for breakfast on the way to the beach so we stopped at the Sugar Shack. What we loved is this is the typical old school diner you'd expect from the 80's. All types of sandwiches, and hot plates like you were at the high school cafeteria or drive in eatery.... More

My husband and I only had ice cream cones. Months later I'm craving the Black Cherry ice cream! The cones were standard but the ice cream was super creamy, rich and flavorful!

We went there for breakfast. We had good food and great service. It is not a fancy place, but we really weren't looking for that. Great prices and good food. Would definitely go back.
