Tybee Sugar Shack
Tybee Island, Georgia has been home to The Sugar Shack for more than 30 years. From its humble beginnings as a summertime walk-up ice cream stand, to its current status as a year-round full-menu restaurant, The Sugar Shack has grown and changed almost as much as its four owners! Since that humble (and messy!) beginning, The Sugar Shack has undergone many changes. The building gradually grew, as a front room, dining room, porch, and second story apartments were added over the years. The restaurant, initially only open during the summer, evolved into staying open year-round, and for longer hours. The “ice cream only” menu underwent extensive changes, as well, as fast food, and then a full range of breakfast, lunch, and dinner items were added on. Today, the restaurant is still run by an original brother or two, and their mom, Mary, keeps everyone in line. Most of the folks working there are family (or feel like family, anyway), and now some of the grandkids are helping to keep the place running!
