The Sugar Shack is a cool Oak Island eatery that brings a little tropical spice to a traditionally beachy menu. Specializing in Jerk flavoring and entrees, this restaurant will wow patrons with an abundance of bold flavors that fit in perfectly with the Cape Fear coastline.
Sugar Shack is located just off of Beach Drive, close to the causeway to the ocean, and is therefore a convenient spot for visitors who are staying just inland or right on the shore. The warm-colored yellow and blue exterior, which is flanked by palm trees, is a nice introduction to the coastal cuisine that’s in store. The ensuing menu is divided into appetizers and light bites, entrees, burger platters, desserts, and a hefty menu where beachy drinks, like “Frosted Island Specialties,” are highlighted. For something island-inspired, try the grilled shrimp skewers with the special house marinade, the “Brown Stew Chicken,” (a Jamaican specialty), or the curried goat, chicken, or shrimp. Patrons who just want a quick bite to accompany a Happy Hour drink will want to try the coconut shrimp, crab fritters, or spicy jerk bites with wings and tender pork. With a clear Jamaican influence, the Sugar Shack is bringing a global blend of island flavors to the coastline of North Carolina.
