We stopped,on the spur of the moment while out daytripping.We did not have to wait in line to be seated.The food was really good.A really nice dining experience.We were a little disappointed because we had our minds set on buying t-shirts but that part was not open that day.

my family vacations in Avon every year, same week, same house….we are from Ohio…no shock there! in 2005 we had dinner at the froggy dog with our parents and then my sister and i stayed and played pool with the locals/listened to karaoke. No sooner than they left my future husband walked through the door and the rest is history!... More

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

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.

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. The Froggy Dog was a welcome sight and we had a delightful meal there. We had traveled far, but felt completely at home at this friendly restaurant--with its casual... More

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...

We were taking a recreational drive down to Hatteras and it was time to eat. We tried a place on the Sound, but it was closed so we just pulled into The Froggy Dog, ready for something to eat. What a pleasant surprise. Although the place suddenly got busy, the staff was attentive and the food was great. (I had... More

Excellent service and great food. We met the most personable waiter and bar tender in all of NC, they were fantastic! They were very attentive and eager to please, along with just being very nice,,, the food was great too...the fish was moist and everything was cooked to perfection. The chocolate cheesecake was out of this world, we would recommend... More
