This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area. Our meal was so bad we both couldn't eat it. I am a salt eater but this was ridiculous. We had the fried shrimp basket with sweet potato fries and really they were both not edible. No one there seemed to care at all..Won't be back.

Went with friends who really know oysters and they loved them local grown ones. I had the shush crab and flounder. You have to like crab there was plenty of it. Would have liked more flounder. Service great, plenty of food. You can eat outside but weather was to cold for that. The ladies has pasta and shrimp and enjoyed... More

Not many restaurant staff rush to open the door to a family of four adults and two small children, but that is the warm welcome we received at Foolish Frog. It was pushing our luck to take the two kids out for early dinner, but we had nothing but smiles and help, a good table by the marsh view, and... More

Many places are closed on New Year's Day, Thank goodness the Foolish Frog is open and serves the traditional Southern New Year's fare of pork chops (two per order) collards and black-eyed peas, all excellently prepared, tender and flavourful. My lady and I had this, our friends had the half-rack of baby back ribs which they described as a little... More

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.

Meeting a friend on the island during a recent vacation took me to this fabulous restaurant! We asked to sit on the deck overlooking the salt marshes..Karen, the server, took fabulous care of us! 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
