After driving by one afternoon, and smelling the wonderful aromamatic signature of JERK then reading all the great reviews. Made reservations- So.. Bad only the coleslaw may have passed health inpections and maybe been homemade.Ordered pork, goat curry, ribs, stamp and gos and many meat pies. After being to Jamaica twice ,that is not Jamaican food! No taste in most food ,I know the meat pies were from Sam's club and curry very gamey( could be cat)shrimp were rubberized. After spending $136.33 then coming home to eat something to get rid of the horrid aftertaste.PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR $ OR TASTEBUDS!!!!! 7/12/10

While vacationing in Ocean Isle Beach, NC we went to the Sugar Shack Restaurant. The food was just "okay." Definitely over-priced for "okay" food. We had five different orders and I'm not sure any of it was home-made. They have a $3.50 sharing charge. We were not impressed with the service either......who knows......maybe they were just having a bad day! LOL Nonetheless.....we won't go back!

We tried out the Sugar Shack based on the rave reviews here. We were sorely disappointed. The cole slaw was delicious, but the rest of the food was basically tasteless. We had jerk chicken and jerk pork. Either dish could be made by anyone with a crock pot and bottle of grocery-store marinade. The restaurant is obviously popular, as it was packed. It was small, cramped, and extremely loud. The service was excellent, but the food was really nothing to write home about.

This is a popular spot. One visit (and taste) and you can easily see why.
Tempted to give them a perfect score, but gotta deduct something for plastic cups.
Curried goat? Hard to find that in some urban eateries, but coastal Carolina?
Three people: $105 for food, drinks, tip and tax (one non-drinker) and we all had plenty of leftovers to take home.

Sugar Shack is a small restaurant located just off Ocean Isle on the mainland. You might overlook it except for all the cars parked nearby. Luckily they take reservations and I recommend that you make them. No, it's not a stuffy, fancy place, just the opposite. That's what makes it special. Very, very comfortable. The management and the wait staff take care of your every need. What a surprise... excellent Jamaican food in southeast most North Carolina.
