Not a great choice for late night dinning

We fed the family here after 8pm while on vacation on the outer banks. Hubby ordered salmon which came out overcooked. Waitress seemed annoyed at times. She was patient enough with the kids (9, 11,13). Overall experience was just okay.

Nice place to go if you wanna hang out and have a bite to eat or a good drink they have pool tables and a bar but also plenty of dining area for family and kids.

My family and I were in Avon vacationing this past summer and stopped in here for lunch on Saturday before check-in. It was busy but they were friendly and had our food out faster than expected. We were waited on by an international student who I found to be friendly and educated. She was busy but made time for us.... More

When you're traveling up Route 12 North from Okracoke to Nag's Head, the road is long and because it's part of the beautiful National Seashore--sometimes just sand and dunes for miles.

Hard to find a restaurant open for lunch in Avon is mid-October so we didn't have much choice. However The Froggy Dog turned out to be fine. We had fish & chips - huge portions of Whiting, cooked perfectly. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. Nice atmosphere....lots of TV's on the walls to watch various football games - we...
