I love it when I find a non-chain restaurant that turns out to be a delightful experience and the Foolish Frog was just that. Even though we had a large party (9) and arrived for lunch without a reservation, we were greeted and arranged so that we could talk to each other. Our drink orders were taken promptly and as...

I went with friends for lunch. We had the steamed crayfish, basket of fried shrimp with fries, ribs and reuben sandwich. The best was the basket of fried shrimp. It was all local shrimp, and the oil that had been used was fresh. In some places, you can smell the rancid oil a mile away - this is definitely *not*... More

Great food and service. The prices were reasonable. The fried food was lightly battered. The steaks were good. Everyone in our party of eleven was pleased with their meal.

It was a little windy,but since I had been watching shrimp boats out on the water all day, I decided to have the shrimp basket -... More

Stopped in for a late dinner. Food was very good. I had the crab and flounder casserole which was excellent. My wife had the shrimp and grits (as she often does) and she said it was very good with an excellent sauce. Portion sizes were OK but not as large as I usually like, but since it was late in...

I had the Mahi BLT and it was great. I couldn't decide on what I should order everything on the menu looked like you couldn't go wrong. The service was spectacular and so was the view. They offer interior and exterior seating. We sat inside only because it was cold but they have a great exteior dining area. If your... More

Impeccable service. Wonderful food. Good music on the patio. This one is a must do. The Island Seafood Supreme is to die for! Creamy, with a touch of spice, and chunks of crab, clams and shrimp. Mm mm. Hubby's shrimp and grits got a 9 out of 10 -- and would have a 10 were it not for the tail... More

I loved my oysters though they were fried a little softer than I like, the side of coleslaw was kind of lacking in flavor but fresh. We sat on the outside overlooking the marsh and it was really nice. Things were a little slow so the service was pretty fast. I had eaten here a few years ago and was... More

We were driving around the Beaufort area and go a little lost about lunch time. Only place to eat was Foolish Frog so we stopped in and sat in the outdoor patio with our dog which was welcomed !!! I had a pulled pork sandwich which was excellent. Very good service and fair prices
