Although the fresh catch of the day was above average, the "Grouper Bites" were actually some other type of fish (most likely Flounder). Unfortunately, our waitress seemed a little spacey and the service was extremely slow. You would think she could have at least get the drink orders right on a slow evening? Nothing worthy to write home about from... More

We killed a couple flys driving us nuts - so many flying around landing on our face and arms & food. Very annoying!! Pricey menu. Cost my husband and I $50 and he just got chicken. My mixed veggies were cold and not cooked. Carrots were completely hard and crunchy broccoli same. Not steamed at all more raw. Probably pass... More

We had the grouper bites, fries and slaw. All were good. The portion size on the grouper bites was sparce. Waitress was attentive. Food arrived hot and fresh. We got 6 pieces each of grouper a little smaller than a 1/2 dollar coin. Not a good value IMO and that's why I'm giving it average.

Had to wait almost 10 minutes to be seated. (Only 3 range tables were occupied at the time)After we were seated was 15minutes before any one approached us for an order. When my wife got her food was not what she ordered,good thing she don't mind jalapeno. Service just sucked.

On our way from Kitty Hawk to Cape Hatteras, we were looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. The Froggy Dog looked like a nice establishment from the outside, although the lack of cars in the parking lot should have been a clue. With very few other customers, the service was unusually slow. It took over an hour for two... More

Had lunch. Barbecue chicken sandwich delicious. Local brewery, Weeping Radish, provided the Black Radish beer, smooth and tasty.

Walking into the restaurant, I was a little tentative about the place. It smelled funny and the menu was a little pricey for what I anticipated getting. My husband and I ordered the Froggy dog sampler and it was SO good! I'm not a "fried food fan", but I loved it. The crab cake balls were to die for, the... More

This place is great for families. The seafood was good but not the greatest. Kids loved the menu items and the play area. They have an awesome dessert and mixed drink selection. Nice place!

Went for dinner, ordered a swordfish special....delicious. Cooked beautifully. Service was prompt. Large portions of food. Didn't order dessert but they looked amazing. Only complaint is hostess was kind of rude. Our waitress was very friendly though.

I went earlier in the week for some drinks. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar and quality of the drinks, however when my husband, daughter, and I went for the meals they were repulsive. I have never had such horrible pasta. Shrimp had no flavor and it was definitely not a pound. To end the lovely night, the desert... More
