Wish they served meals all day. Mid afternoon sandwiches and appetizers. The food is great. Staff friendly. Not fast food.

I would complain about the management, but there is no management. No hostess when you enter. We seated ourselves and no one acknowledged us for 15 minutes. Ordered our drinks and waited another 15 minutes. Other customers were getting up and leaving due to lack of service. We finished our drinks, paid our bill and left.

We stopped at the Froggy Dog for dinner and all five people in our party were thrilled with the food and service. Very affordable, cute atmosphere too! We will definitely be back! YUM!

My husband had already scoped this place out, and when we first pulled up I said..okay..I'm game. We had made the trek from Nags Head to Hatteras and were on our way back. Everyone was hungry. The wait for our food was a little long, and there was some time getting our drinks refilled or it would be five stars.... More

Took a long time to be seated (1 hour) even though there were many empty tables when we finally were seated. Food just wasn't very good. Desert was excellent! Didn't seem to have enough servers this particular night. She was good but overly busy because of lack of help.

While on a recent vacation to Rodanthe, NC my husband and I ate dinner at the Froggy Dog. We had lunch here in 2012 and we were excited to make a return trip. We were greeted immediately and taken to a table in the back of the restaurant. Our server was outstanding but our food took a while to arrive.... More

We had an early lunch after hiking up the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. It was good and our selections ranged from scallops/flounder to hamburgers!

Lunch was really good. Clam chowder and burgers were prepared really well with fast service. Really huge portions too. Russian exchange student waited on us. She was very attentive and we never had an empty drink glass!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch and as it was out first meal in Avon we weren't sure what to expect. We tried frog legs for the first time and it was really good. We both ordered Grilled Shrimp Skewers Served with fresh steamed vegetables and a garden salad. I'm not usually a big fan of shrimp but... More

We stopped here for a late lunch after seeing the lighthouse. The service was slow. Waiter was bad about keeping a check on our drinks. Food was ok. Popcorn shrimp were good but portion was tiny. BLT portion was huge. Hot dog was ok if you like all beef - we prefer red hot dogs in our family.
