Decent food, high price

We came in for an impromptu visit on our way back to our hotel from Ockachobee. We were looking for some good seafood, and I have to say it was hit and miss. We had conch fritters for an appetizer whi ch was pretty good, but at $2 per bite too expensive. Husband and I shared a seafood platter and... read more

Went there for breakfast with my 6 year old daughter. Service was terrible, restaurant had an old musty smell, had to ask for everything twice: napkins, drinks, etc. They even charged me for an adult breakfast when clearly my child was ordering off the kids menu. If negative stars were an option they'd have earned -5.

We had lunch at the bar. The fish sandwich was amazing. The gentleman bartending was very fun, and our drinks were perfect!

Chris , out bartender, didn't seem much of a people person. We tried to talk with h, but it was clear he was not there to socialize. The wait for drinks was rather long. The bar has about 25 customers in it and Chris said it would get really crazy in here on a karaoke night .. Chris picked up... More

We visited the Froggy Dog because it was close to our condo. The atmosphere was nice and the wait staff friendly. I got a salad with blackened chicken, and my wife got a crab cake sandwich. The food was average fair, and the prices seemed a little steep for the quality. That said, the portions were large, and we left... More

After a 30 year hiatus, my husband and I returned to the OuterBanks for a windsurfing vacation. Needless to say, The Froggy Dog is still standing!! although we didn't have a meal there, we were pleased by the friendliness of an employee named Chris. He didn't hesitate to unlock the gift shop so that we could purchase a tee shirt... More

This was by far the very best restaurant we dined at during our stay! Our waitress AJ was the most entertaining and awesome waitress ever!! The bartender Chris knew exactly what drinks each of us preferred and delivered exceptional beverages! And the food...OMG!!!! The most amazing seafood on the island! We will definitely be returning to The Froggy Dog!

While looking for someplace quick for lunch we found the Froggy Dog, despite some so-so reviews we opted to try it out. The food was very good, especially the fish tacos and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to make a return visit.

Sign stated Seat Yourself, which is fine except there was no other greeting from anyone. Bartender didn't call out, no wait staff to be seen (other than vacuuming). We did arrive at an odd time (3p), but menu wasn't very clear about the options available. Disappointing that the sign stated

We have been going to the Froggy Dog for decades - ever since it was a walk up snack bar where you could buy a hot dog and an ice cream. The food is okay, and occasionally the specials are superb. I had the shrimp po' boy special and the "VIP" cocktail special one day and was VERY pleased! On... More
