Sugar Creek Restaurant was named by Teresa and Ervin Bateman in 2004. The restaurant was previously known as RV’s and Ervin worked there 20 plus years before purchasing.  Teresa and Ervin have implemented numerous improvements since buying the restaurant. They kept many of the recipes that made the original restaurant famous and added new scrumptious recipes of their own. The restaurant has doubled in size with a new dining room suitable for large groups and a full service bar enabling you to enjoy a relaxing drink before your meal. An outside dining deck with an overhead shade screen enables you to enjoy the beautiful scenery with cool breezes from the Roanoke Sound.  Teresa and Ervin work hard each day to create a wonderful dining experience for you.
