Very very good

Many many meals and cocktails at Sugar Creek over the years, my favorite for fried oysters, another local restaurant with great view, location, can sit large groups, have own vegetable and herb garden and work with local fisherman. Can get crazy crowded during high season so expect a wait, as with... read more

The meal here was a complete disappointment especially after sampling other restaurants in the area. This place sells its self with the view only. The calamari appetizer was nothing beyond just ok and marinara sauce that came with tasted straight out of a jar. The swordfish with pineapple salsa was good but nothing spectacular and the seafood platter was a... More

This place had the best food of all the places we ate while in Nags Head (even compared to the more fancy/expensive restaurants).

Ate here for lunch. Service was good and the view was nice. The food was good but average. More of a tourist place.

We took a friend here for lunch--food was OK but service was deplorable--we emailed them re this and were told they spoke w/waitress about it. We will never return. Service has been iffy here for years but we've overlooked it and gone back---no more.

I had the broiled shrimp which was good and the homemade cornbread is good - has a slight sweet taste to it. No complaints on my meal. Spouse had the fried seafood platter which is fish, shrimp and scallops - a lot of food! The shrimp was good and fish okay, but the scallops were not cooked enough and just... More

We arrived for an early lunch on our way home on Sunday. The she-crab soup was hot and wonderful. You just cannot beat the views! I had shrimp and scallops which were fried perfectly, very little batter. My husband got the seafood platter and had to get a to go box!! Monica was our waitress and came to the table... More

We were given this restaurant by the B&B we stayed at on Roanoke Island as a handful of very good seafood places in the area. They were definitely correct and while not inexpensive, the food was VG and only highlighted by the sunset over the bay. You should try them if anywhere in the area. Susan was our waitress and...

I had the seared scallops, clam chowder and salad. I loved the Parmsean Pepper Dressing. I make a point to come here when I'm on vacation and it is always good.

Group of five and never had to wait. Beautiful view of the sound as you dine on the best and wonderfully prepared salad. I dined on two occasions here with a group of friends. The Steamed Clams were perfect, the Fried Shrimp were so lightly breaded that you tasted the Shrimp. One Diner ordered the Prime Rib and the server... More
