Had lunch with family. Good location, lots of parking and good food. Service was good. Fries were very good.

This is hands down the best seafood I have ever had. I have visited North Carolina beaches 3-5 times each year for the past 10 years, so this is saying something about the food at Sugar Creek. We started with the crab dip appetizer. It...More

This place sits on the sound with beautiful views. Great place to watch the sun go down. If you like to dine early, they have an awesome early bird special. Look for the coupon in the Sunny Day book.

We stopped here on the way back north after spending the day at Hatteras and Shelly Island. We didn't realize it was the last night of the season but that didn't seem to matter. Our waitress was so friendly and took very good care of...More

We've been dining at Sugar Creek on every trip to the OBX for many years. The food is dependably good - the cornbread is like dessert and their coleslaw is just like my mother used to make! Hubby always orders the fried shrimp - it...More
