We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food at this place. The shrimp,scallops, fresh fish, coleslaw and hush puppies were all delicious.

First time trying this restaurant and will definitely come back. The parking lot was pretty full so I expected there to be a wait. Not the case at all. We were seated right away. All the tables have a beautiful, waterfront view. The food was super fresh. The service was great. The owner even took his time to thank us... More

Upon a recommendation, we spent our last evening at Sugar Creek. The staff was friendly and the wait wasn't too bad. We had a great view of the sunset over the water. Those are the pros. The calamari was good, but everything else was average. Some of the seafood was overcooked. Next year we might just go for drinks on... More

Beautiful waterfront location. We had to wait. However; we were able to sit waterfront and watch the sunset. Great view for sunset. Lots of choices on the menu!

Group of eight for dinner. All I can say was that the crab dip was great, the rest of the meals for everyone was average. I had the fried flounder, which was bland, the waitress was alright not that friendly , kept forgetting sauces that we asked for. Should we return to Nags Head, we won't be eating there again.

I had the "fried" Catfish and for an appetizer the Fried Green Tomatoes. The coating was the same for both - a simple bland cornmeal coating. I would say for everyday eating this is a nice place due to its views and the service. However their "chef" is not a chef but rather a cook. There was nothing inspiring or... More

Seated by the window with a great view of the sound. Waiter was excellent. Highly recommend the seafood. Drink special was not pricy and refreshing on a balmy night. Will definitely return next year.

Every time we're in town, we have to visit Sugar Creek on Friday night for their 20-shrimp special! They are always able to accommodate our large group (up to 20 people).
