We had a bit of a wait... but the food was awesome.
I had the Salmon Salad. It was very tasty. My husband had the meat loaf, it came like a thick roll up... my husband loved it. Their MAC & Cheese is to die for. Must order. The pizzas were very good as well. Anytime we are in Peoria, we will enjoy eating at Sugar
Also... my grandson has tree nut allergies, but management assured us he could have the Pepperoni Pizza. He did, & we had no issues.

Stop into Sugar today for a beer before a concert. Had no issues with any food or beverages, but was very unimpressed by the service. Upon ordering it seemed like we were more of an annoyance than anything. Just didn’t get a good vibe. The AC also didn’t seem to be working on a 100 degree day which made it very uncomfortable inside. For the #2 restaurant in Peoria we had a pretty underwhelming experience.

Sweet respite for weary travelers on a road trip from Cincinnati to Salt Lake. Based solely on the recommendations of TripAdvisor, we deliberately suppressed our hunger pains until we could get to Sugar in Peoria, Illinois. Not far from the freeway lies Sugar - a casual dining, wood-fire bistro dining experience on the waterfront near the baseball stadium. Getting off and on the freeway was a breeze.

The exterior is industrial, clean and colorful while the interior is post-modern, whimsical and comfortable. The staff were friendly and busy from the moment we arrived hungry until we left satisfied.

We are a family of four and ordered personal pizzas for everyone but taste tested a variety. I would recommend the same if your party is four or more in size. We ordered a Supreme, Chicken BLT, Hawaiian, and regular Cheese pizza. They were hand made with fresh ingredients and then fired to perfection. It’s a thin crust pizza with crispy edges and a more
chewy center.

The soda fountain drinks are self-serve. You’re given a tall empty glass (not a paper cup). Refills are free so you’ll never feel the need to ration your beverage intake.

The men’s and women’s restrooms were clean and polished, though only one stall per gender might make for long wait times if crowded with people.

The manager went out of his way three or four times to make us feel welcome and orient us to their way of doing things. Expect to pay about $10 to $15 per person just for food. Yes, at that price you could order more from Papa John’s or any other fast food place, but it won’t be as memorable or as delicious!

Pizza was delicious and came out quickly. Love the service. I had the Hawaiian and it was as amazing!

We stopped in while visiting for a few hours on our way to Chicago... it was awesome! The kids had wood fired pizzas, Mac and cheese- Delish! Adults had steak kabobs, Waldorf salad and the salmon. The fish came out expertly prepared with the perfect amount of crisp sear on the outside while moist and flaky on the inside. Very impressed and will absolutely be back again.
