I will now add The Froggy Dog to the places that I MUST visit when in the OBX. The first night we went in just for drinks. The owner greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The rest of the staff was friendly also and kept us very entertained. We returned for dinner the next two nights!! We were... More

We should probably have just walked out when at 2:15 the first words out of the servers mouth as we are seated were, "hurry up and order because it is near the end of lunch and we go on pub menu". Um, Ok. I got a pirate burger. It was good. Really. Cooked to a fare-thee-well, but tasty. The fries... More

I would imagine at the height of the summer rush you would find this place crowded, and maybe the staff a little overwhelmed...where isn't it? It has a touristy feel to it, and I'm a tourist. We were here at the end of September, so shoulder season rules apply and we ended up eating here a couple of times since... More

We stopped at the Froggy Dog before getting on the ferry to Ocracoke because they had outdoor seating and we travel with a large golden retriever. We read some of the reviews that were not so good and decided to stop anyway. We were planning on having a sandwich so we weren't too concerned. We were pleasantly surprised by the... More

We usually are disappointed by chain restaurants in tourist towns, but Froggy Dog served us very well. 4 people, 4 different entrees, and everyone was very satisfied with their selections. We will be back! Good food, very fair prices.

After our bad experience at another Avon establishment it was refreshing to walk into a place with energy, service, and great food. Even though the restaurant was busy we were immediately seated and served; throughout our meal our server was attentive - she did a great job. We both ordered the crab cake sandwich - it was grilled and not... More

Looking at these reviews, I wondered if we ate at the same place! We were seated in just a few seconds. Ordered the conch fritters, which were fabulous. Fried to a golden perfection! I got the shrimp basket, as I wasn't too hungry after attacking the fritters. Had about 6 huge shrimp and a mountain of fries. All seasoned and... More

This yr while staying in Waves, I drove down 2 times JUST for the coconut bomb cake! It is an awesome dessert, especially after a hot day at the beach! I will be back again next June for more 😄

Stopped in mylastnite on the island, place was pretty empty for an August evening. Sat at the bar and had mixed seafood and a glass of wine. Good service and fast.....of course service is easy with only four people to take care of. Food was good and tasty......whole thing was pretty much what I wanted.....

All I can say is this place is not good from the waitstaff, atmosphere, and most importantly the food. Pick another place and enjoy it because it's not going to happen here.
