Over an hour wait even
with reservations. Party of 11 food literally came out one entree after the next after waiting at least five to ten minutes in between receiving the next meal. Party could not enjoy drink and dinner as some of the party was already done eating before the remaining guest received their food. Some food came before drinks. Not a good experience and will not return

The food was ok, the signature drinks are ok I didn't order one just tasted one. For $30 you should be able to keep the cup in my opinion. The music they play when it's your birthday is up beat u will dance.

I would not recommend the sugar factory to any of my friends. The food was overpriced and not very good for that matter. I had the donut burger and the donut was old and smelled funny. My daughter had the chicken and waffles the waffle was not cooked all the way and it was rubbery. My server was okay, but he disappeared a lot longer than what we felt like was necessary. I'm pretty sure no one will ever read this review, but I thought I should put it out there. My next review will be placed on Google.

Service was not up to par . Once I was seated no one came over to serve us for ate least 15-20 mins , food took forever to come out I ordered wings and fries and when the food finally came out my wings were missing I ended up asking for them to go. And to top it all off I was there for my birthday and the server knew I got absolutely no birthday song , desert anything . It was a terrible experience overall I was very dissatisfied.

This place is fun for kids but doesn’t have a kids menu or kid sized fun drinks! Wait staff needs training. At the price point, staff should be right on top of things and it seemed like we were constantly looking for assistance.

Service sucks you wait forever to be seated and the staff is so slow and it’s more like a play ground than a work place. For what is charged for drinks and food I expected way better service definitely will not be back to that location and the fact that you have to leave a 18% for horrible service makes it even worse. Will not be returning

Loved the drinks especially the goblets! The goblets are worth the price and more. It’s a safe place for all members of a family to go and enjoy.

We went for my daughter's birthday. It was a fun experience. The specialty drink and milkshake were good. My fries were overcooked but after waiting forever just to get two burgers and a salad, I ate them. The servers and the hostess were very friendly and they do an awesome job with the birthday song. The kitchen needs to push out the food much quicker.

The menu was misleading. It states a garden veggie burger but I was serviced a poorly cooked black bean burger. Also My tables order was messed up and we waited almost an hour for the new plate to arrive. The waiter told us it was on the house but when the bill came the messed up order was still on the bill. It was resolved at the it but besides the drinks the overall experience was terrible. Plus we traveled all the way from NC to eat here and left very disappointed.

Service sucked, we had no waiter we just had to randomly stop workers. We reserved but sat down an hour later. Their system shut down multiple times. I bill was suppose to be discounted because of poor service but yet they charged full price. I ordered a drink at the bar “the drake” and never received it. It was just a hot mess. Oh they gave us a free shot 🚮

We had reservations for 7:45 pm and arrived at 7:38 pm. We were seated at 9:00 pm. During our wait the host did not give us any updates or offer an apology for the delay. When we were finally seated we were given a coupon for a free appetizer IF we purchased a $30 drink. The waitress who served us was very nice an attentive but the evening was ruined by the ridiculous wait for our table.

We had a reservation and waited 30 min. still not seated so we left, they came after us which is a plus and redeemed themselves. The space was small and the music was too loud, we enjoyed our meal and probably will not come back.

Waiter was horrible. Food was over cooked. Waiter served drinks and food to other tables before ours. Special birthday song for several other tables - they played the music loud, turned the lights low and celebrated the birthday person. Our birthday girl - music was lower and the lights were on. Completely treated us different then they did the entire guests around us. We spent over $350 on service that made us feel not welcomed and not special on my daughters birthday. We had rented a limo and her wish was to come to the sugar factory. To say the least, we were very disappointed with service and the way we were treated.

For a kid friendly venue, the prices for drinks are outrageous! There were NO prices on the menus and for my daughter and I, the bill was $130.00! The our food was $22! The drink she had was $24 non alcohol (which was not good at all) and mines was $30! The dessert i had which was recommended by the waiter was $20 and $5 for the sparkle - which was never communicated! I was there to celebrate my birthday with another one of my mentees who was turning 12.

I think it is totally deceitful not to put prices on the menus. Yes I am sure I should have asked but who would think a kid friend establishment would high jack prices. The waiter indicated that was the main complaint of the establishment. I can only think that if she knew this, she should have communicated this to us but of course our bill would have been less and her tip would have been too! There was a group of us under different reservations under the same waitress and I know our complete bill for 10 guest (4 kids) was over $400 which is outrageous. I will never recommend this to anyone. I am still outraged!

I selected the Sugar Factory on 3/4/19, for my daughter’s Birthday and I was very pleased with everything the staff provided to me and my family, especially my daughter.
Again, I would like to thank everyone for making my day, as well as my daughters day. You guys were awesome and we will continue to patronize the Sugar Factory because we are loyal customers.

We hosted a birthday party for a 9 year old. The entrees were priced reasonably, but of course the kids wanted those $25 bubbly, smoking goblets which drive our cost sky high!! Service and food was great, but I wasn’t prepared for the pricey drinks. Next time I will be forewarned.

This place was fantastic......the staff was superb and super friendly and very attentive, I was seated in a timely fashion and didn't have to wait past my reservation time of 8:45pm (I'm a stickler for time). It was just a really fun and pleasant atmosphere where I felt relaxed and I just smiled the entire time I was there.
