What a charming place - off the beaten path location, outstanding local low country food, friendly owners. This place has all of the elements of a smash hit in a more urban locale... except that it's in St. George, South Carolina. Get off I-95 and find Shug's - it will be well your time and effort. Oh, and if you... More

We stopped at this place because we wanted a Southern Meal on our way to Florida. We seen numerous signs for this, and then did the Reading of the Reviews- It held high reviews, so we decided to give it a try. Its easily accessible off the highway, the building doesn't look like your typical restaurant. When arriving I asked... More

Looked this place up while staying over at the Peach Tree Inn nearby (check them out as well!), and after seeing a couple of good reviews I figured I would check it out. I had my friend from Charleston drive up to meet me there and we got there kinda early. Of course this didn't matter, because Chef Noah, one... More

This was our first time at the restaurant. The owners and all of the staff were most accommodating. We had baked macaroni/cheese, fried okra, fried green tomatoes, crab cake, fired steak with fired shrimp. All of the food was excellent including the best baked macaroni/cheese and fried green tomatoes I have ever had. Oh and the chocolate brownie with ice... More

The best pork chop I have ever eaten in my life, it was grilled not even fried! I dropped in on a Thursday afternoon about 1 PM and I wondered if they were even open, since there was only one car in the parking lot. I have no idea why, because this is probably the best soul, southern style food... More

My husband and I met his cousin and her husband at this restaurant on our way home from FL. They had never been there, so we were all a little tentative, entering the place. It was a little restaurant set apart and a little way back from the road. We were greeted warmly by Blanche, our server and also the... More

Very relaxed atmosphere. Great attention from owners Noah and Blanche and staff. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the shrimp and grit cake was fabulous. We'll be back.

My husband and I for the first time stopped in just to see and try the food at Shug's. We had passed by the restaurant many times and always wondered what is Shug's. We finally found out. We are just sorry we had never stopped by sooner. We had the best conversation with Mr. Noah Coleman and the food was... More
