Small town bar, big time atmosphere

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... read more

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.

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".

Bartenders are great, beer selection is pretty good. Wide variety of food. Nachos are good. Venison chicken chili is my favorite.

My wife and I recently went to Bull Frogs in Ortonville, they raved about this restaurant - and with the town being so small there is not allot of choices. Its your standard bar and grill atmosphere - we were promptly seated and our waitress (Who I must say was in training) because a waiter was following her around giving... More

Went there in August after a car show. Had a good meal sorta pub style. Service was very good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Will go back again next year when attending the Woodward Dream Cruise. Would recommend this restaurant.

We just moved back to Ortonville after 5 years. We'd eaten at Bullfrogs then, and thought we might try it again after so many years. The food was terrible! I ordered the perch dinner which consisted of greasy, little tadpole looking tubes of fish. It was served with a 1/4 cup of boiled, previously frozen veggies &a salad that was... More
