The Sugar Shack is a fish and seafood monger at Nags Head NC. They also will steam or fry any of the seafood they have on hand. My wife and I shared a pound of their spicy steamed shrimp, and a serving of fried okra. The shrimp were most excellent. It had us licking our fingers as w peeled them.... More

Sugar Shack is a seafood deli and market right on the water. The fish looked fresh in the case and it was fresh when we ordered. Great Crab & Corn Chowder and Shrimp Po'Boy. Service is simple; order off the menu or take in one of the specials; grab a table and wait for it to be delivered. Excellent homemade... More

This is also a restaurant. But a poor one at that. As a seafood restaurant the quality is not that high. I ordered a combination fried shrimp and scallop plate which took an inordinately long to to appear on the table. When is arrived it was obvious that the food had been sitting under a heat lamp. Quality is low.... More

This is a convenient stop for lunch if you are heading down to Hatteras Island and you can eat on the back deck with your dog instead of having to leave the dog in the car. The seafood is fresh and they have daily specials plus beer on tap! There are a few tables inside or you can eat at... More

We had never eaten here, but had eaten at the restaurant that is attached to it. Apparently, it was a new owner and it was no longer pet friendly, but the Sugar Shack across from it was. Since we travel with a golden retriever, strolled over to the Sugar Shack. We found the food to be very good. I ordered... More

We ate here for dinner in August. We got in just before the rush. The place was very busy but our service was excellent. The food was good-not spectacular but good. I do not recall now what everyone had but two of the choices were the seafood stew and the seafood pasta.

Stopped by on the way out of town for a quick fish sandwich. Had the grilled tuna and it was out of this world. Also had the house chips which were also fantastic. Will be back again soon.

This very casual seafood restaurant is one of the best hidden gems. The outdoor patio is completely dog friendly and our dogs loved it. The food was wonderful and delicious. I had the fish and chips which was one huge piece of fish that was thick and flaky. My table also ordered the clam strips, calamari and bisque. Everybody raved... More

Great atmosphere, good service and well prepared food. Servings are very large. You may want to consider splitting or shareing meals. Added to our go back list

This restaurant has amazing and fresh seafood and an awesome view of the water and sunset! I would highly recommend the scallops and shrimp, fried oysters or the soft shell crab. These were all excellent. Our waitress Monica was outstanding and provided the best service and conversation!
