    Our waiter, Joey I believe is his name, was so wonderful. He made my daughter's sweet 16 birthday dinner special and one I'm sure she'll never forget. My 2yr old was making such a mess and was so gracious, patient, and helpful. We've been here twice and both experiences were awesome....thank you.

    Went to celebrate 12th birthday and various items of the menu were not available and we were not made aware until after we ordered and when the meals were served. The sides did not match to the online menu and desserts were not available which created some frustration with the children.

    The food is ok. The desserts/ shakes/ drinks are cool but overall it’s not worth the price. All the celebrity pictures shown on outdated, which made me feel like the Sugar Factory is outdated. It’s fun an experience but I don’t need to go back.

    Front desk was unfriendly with three people all looking busy but seemingly not doing much. We came early with ice children (5.30pm) so it wasn’t busy but this wasn’t evident in the service. Atmosphere with the music and video screens was fun for the children. Our waitress was nice but didn’t know which wines they serve or how much they cost, there was nothing on the drinks list about wine. The wine which they serve is not great but still expensive. As were the cocktails which ranged from $24-$39. We have two young children (6 and 2 years old) but there was no children’s menu, in a place called sugar factory! They don’t even offer half portions. The children ended up having to share a plate of five sliders and leaving two of them as it was too much. I had a burger and fries and my partner had the meatballs, both of which were fine but expensive. We shared a cookie dough and ice cream dessert which was good and the waitress kindly out a sparkling candle in it for the children. Overall, a disappointing evening in terms of the offering for children and the value for money. Online it looked like a great option for families but clearly we got it wrong.

    It was a terrible experience. Not only did I spend money on desserts but when I asked the lady to sing happy birthday to my daughter she told me I had to buy another dessert in order for them to sing to my daughter. We were treated very poorly. I will not be going back.

    Great ambiance and energy. Food was subpar and overpriced. Also I really don’t like mandatory fees after the bill. Just incorporate it into your listed prices and let people decide if that is a fair price

    Totally disorganized. Waiter late went to parking lot to get something. Appetizers came same time as food. All tasted bland. We ordered milkshakes did not get them until last bites of the food. Finally had the audicity to add 20% surcharge as they are doing all meals now!!

    We went to celebrate a birthday…they informed us that the website was wrong and that they would not honor happy hour prices. We were also told that the website had a lot of errors so we should just ignore what was on it. They were out of a lot of items and didn’t have containers for us to take leftovers.

    Drinks are way overpriced-you are really paying for the experience. Ok to try once I guess but half the drink overflow into the table and then the dry ice freezes it! Asian chicken salad was decent but the bruschetta was literally pico de Gallo on little sour dough pieces. And didn’t get a birthday treat like other patrons even though they were told we had a birthday twice.

    The service was quite poor. It seems like if you want anything other than neon colored drinks in water coolers this place is not for you. My husband waited 30 min for a bitter, terrible cup of coffee. And they require you to pay 20% for tip, this is insane. Why would service improve if tips don't matter. The food also came at all different times and they prices were completely over the top for the food quality.

    When booking a reservation it mentioned happy hour was from 1-3 if I recall correctly and that was not true. Bill ended up being over $170 for 3 drink and 3 app that were very dry and had little to no flavor. The construction next door was so loud that we rushed to get out.

    Walked in for my reservations, stood there for 10 minutes and left because I wasn’t even acknowledged. There was maybe 4 groups sitting down in the whole restaurant. So not full at all, pretty empty. Ended up just leaving.

    My daughter picked this place and it’s very unique. She ordered the Mac n cheese burger and she loved it. I had the Cuban sandwich and it was equally as good. She ordered an non alcoholic s’mores drink and really dig it. Only issue is with the mandatory 20% added to bill you gamble on service. We saw our server 2 times then she brought the check. It was not busy at all around 600 pm. I’d go again to try a different menu item.

    sugar factory is a really fun place if you catch it on an non busy day. we had 8:15 reservations for a party of 10. when we got there they were running 30 min behind reservation times. we didn’t mind waiting but after the 30 min, they were about to seat us and they asked if my whole party was there—to which i replied that one guest canceled so it would now be a party of 9. the hostess then told me that since we no longer have 10, we would hav r to wait longer for a different table and they would give away the table that was made for us to another party of 10 that 1. came after us & 2 had no reservation which made 0 sense. i had to ask for a manager who helped us out. when the bill came, they were up charging different items on the menu (ex: caesar salad $13 add steak $14 on the menu) and they charged us 13 + 25 for the steak on the bill. charged us for a couple items that we didn’t receive and overall $40 more than why our bill was supposed to be… had i not caught it they would’ve just gone with it. the food was decent, drinks are great, overall experience was below decent. watch your bills!

    My daughter wanted to celebrate her 17th birthday here. I made reservations for the top tier. I'm assuming they are remodeling because we were sat in just normal seating. They didn't even acknowledge her birthday and she was wearing a hat and sash that said it was her birthday. The food was good, I'll give them that, but pricey. If you're looking for a deal forget about it. Our waitress didn't check on us hardly at all. This place is definitely for a birthday or celebration. Not just you're everyday eating out place!

    Save your money and go elsewhere. We were a family of nine who brought our kids to have fun milkshakes and although the milkshakes were creative, the food was awful. We ordered a large margarita and it had very little to no alcohol. The service started out great and then we were forgotten. It’s definitely time for this restaurant group to reevaluate their expectations for food and beverage quality, service and menu. We were disappointed!

    This place is loud, service is terrible, food is gross. The space is enormous, but only a tiny portion in use, so it’s like you’re sitting in a strange empty warehouse that has 15 tables and 20 TV’s playing videos of celebrities from 15 years ago that once ate food there. Clearly this place is probably going to shut down soon. On the positive the shakes are great. But come for one shake and then get out. Food was inedible and completely overpriced. Plus they force 20% tip. So because of that the service is non-existent.

    First thing I am not used to Tip or Gratuity being added automatically, although I didn't mind it as the service was wonderful. . Great Food, Cookie Monster shake had a hard donut and cupcake was frozen. Smores share waas good but burnt. Nice portion for the Sampler platter with Mac and Cheese balls, Buffalo Chicken Wings, Onion Rings, and Chicken Fingers. House salad was Great but the Pan Roasted Skirt Steak was just OK. The Big Chessy Burger was delicious with the garlic fries.
