Don't miss this place. Since 1996 Sugar Shack has featured authentic Jamaican home cooking (yes, the chef/owner is Jamaican) in a colorful, intimate setting about a mile from the beach. Greenery, tropical artwork, and recorded reggae music add a happy island feel, while live music is offered on Saturdays. Sugar Shack specializes in its own recipe for jerk seasoning. The flavorful jerk selections, served with a hot 'n' sweet sauce, anchor a small delightful menu that also includes Stamp & Go (a traditional spicy cod fritter), Brown Stewed Fish (slowly cooked red snapper) and a curried goat so tender it literally falls off the bone. The house specialty is a huge steak, marinated, slowly grilled and richly flavored. Oh, and don't forget to try the award-winning baby back ribs. Nothing is too spicy for the average palate, but imported hot sauce is available if you want to hurt yourself. Some appetizers are enough for a meal, and the Jamaican Sampler is a good introduction. Other offerings include a grilled mango tuna, spiced-just-right crab fritters, homemade soups, great burgers and nightly specials, such as lightly fried coconut shrimp served with mango-pepper marmalade. Then you just need to top it all off with a luscious slice of homemade Key lime pie. Guinness and Red Stripe beer are served. Take-out orders are welcome. Sugar Shack is one block south of Ocean Isle Beach Road, a few yards off N.C. 179. (Ocean Isle Beach Road intersects U.S. 17 about 3 miles east of Grissettown.) Sugar Shack is open nightly 5 PM-9 PM for dinner in summer and Tuesday through Saturday off-season. Live entertainment is featured on Saturday nights. Reservations are strongly suggested.
