Delicious marinated steak. Polite efficient staff. Tastey deserts. Definitely worth the drive. Ample parking and adult beverages are available.

Ordered medium rare steak, got rare steak. Waitress was nice but failed to refill tea and only checked on us once. Could barely chew the prime rib. It used to be melt in your mouth. Won't be going back this is the second time that the food was terrible.

Medium Rare Prime was very good, tender with great flavor. Horse radish dip was good. Ribs were good as always. Service was great and much improved from last visit.

Love this rustic restaurant! Me and my husband go quite frequently. Love the BBQ brisket sandwich and homemade fries!! The saysR on the brisket is scrumptious!! Fried green tomatoes are great too! Haven't had anything on the menu yet that wasn't delicious!!

Brisket sandwich is good and a good value. They serve peanuts in the shell like a Texas Road house. Fries were good as well

This place was very busy and ALWAYS is! So I am going to say we must have hit them on a not so good night or ordered the wrong thing. I ordered broiled fish......not so good. A bit fishy and overcooked. Vegies that came with it were brutally overcooked. My husband ordered a steak, lots of fat and overcooked as... More

We eat at Shugs at least twice a week and sometimes much more! Their specials are great, as well as, everything else on the menu. We love the brisket, chicken philly, boom boom shrimp, collards, and spring chicken salad.

Shug's was recommended by someone and I had read all the previous reviews. Awesome restaurant! My eyes were bigger than my stomach and had to take a doggie bag. Ribeye was cooked well and the garlic mashed potatoes are soooo good. My mother got flounder and oysters and she loved it. She wanted to go back a second night!

Thank MzKenya
