Great atmosphere on a lake.

The food is hit and miss Somethings are good and other things are not. You pay a little more here, but you are sitting with a water view. That you can't find anywhere else nearby. Lamb sliders are a treat! Can accommodate large groups!

Went to Bullfrogs for a burger & beer. Burger was okay but the french fries were cool, limp & basically tasteless. Asked the server if we could hot fries. When she returned, the fries were warmer but still limp & tasteless. It appears their "standard" fries are covered with some type of coating (seasoning??) but in my opinion adds nothing... More

Everything was good, food, service and patio. Drinks were reasonably priced along with the food. Menu had a wide range of offerings.

The outside deck is a great place to relax and look at the lake. Food is good. Good location on M-15 (Ortonville). Had a great time with my 80 year old mom here on St. Patrick's day at the bar with the owners and customers. They gave away a ton of stuff from beads to shirts

It was my husbands birthday and we along with another couple went to have dinner at Bull Frogs on Mar 12th. Our waitress was very helpful and pleasant. Our food was all good. Once the meal was over she brought my husband an ice cream sundae and brought 4 spoons so that we could share.

The food is just average, but the place is way too noisy to carry on a conversation. A good choice if you are too shy to talk or are having a fight with your wife.

Bullfrogs has food that could only be considered average, even for a bar, but don't miss the deep fried pickles. Lots of beer varieties make up for blah food and slow service. There is a great view of the lake but the place can get pretty busy. Expect a lot of locals - Kid Rock was known to stop in... More

Stopped in for a revisit. Our first experience was pretty good. This experience will lead me to NEVER return. We were seated and a very nice waitress came over and started to take our drink order. Half way through, she was interrupted by another waitress, who claimed it was her table... In front of us. Strike one. Waitress number 2... More

Right on the water with a big deck outside. Nice spot for the summer. We go here to watch football games sometimes in the fall. They have tvs lining the bar and 2 big projection screens. Pizza and nachos are pretty good. My husband loves the blt pizza. Hostess staff not the best. Really young girls who don't know a... More

Decent place to eat. Sort of family sports bar. Food is generally pretty good. Nothing to write home about. Sometimes they have entertainment, but it is usually one or two people stuffed into a corner with a small sound system. Also nothing exciting. Not a bad place all in all. Just not "great".
