Local surfers work here. Excellent beach vibe. A truly locals hangout for breakfast. I have been here many times through the years, love the surfers!

The outside patios, front and back, are a great place to eat. Inside is a bit stuffy but great for real sports fans. The hot wings and clam chowder are both fantastic - the best in Huntington Beach!

Great place. Very historic. Great food and great atmosphere. Home of the sugar shack song. Surfing and beach atmosphere.

I went to Sugar Shack on a recent business trip for breakfast. The food was good and the staff was friendly. It was nice to eat outside and close enough to the beach to smell the ocean air.

Family has been going to Sugar Shack forever. Food is reliable, prices reasonable and service prompt. Only criticism is the awning that covers the back patio which makes the dining area very dark.
