About Us

Tybee Island, Georgia has been home to The Sugar Shack for more than 50 years.  From its humble beginnings as a summertime walk-up ice cream stand, to its current status as a year-round Ice Cream shop, The Sugar Shack has grown and changed over the years.

As of late summer 2022, the restaurant is under NEW OWNERSHIP!  With plans already in the works to update and remodel the existing building.  We'll be keeping the legendary Ice Cream shop as the central focus at the property and adding some new "sweet treats" as we move forward into the new year with a Grand Re-Opening in early spring 2023! 


We'd love to have you come share the experience with us, so be sure to stop in whenever you are on the island!
