Quaint, friendly place!

We enjoyed our lunch here! I had the spinach salad and the ingredients were very fresh. My husband had the shrimp basket and he enjoyed it as well. The portions are perfect.

I was disappointed. Salad was great the ribs should have been cooked longer - they were not falling off the bone. Frogs legs were great but a little too much batter.The ice cream was very average but the pecan pie was excellent.

Went to this restaurant looking for seafood. They didn't have what we were looking for, so we ordered ribs and fish. The ribs were done but not 'falling off the bone', which is my preference. Sauce was ok but not great. Fish portion was large and tasty. The fish was falling apart (kinda wish the ribs had been too). Our... More

I had the fried oysters in a basket for lunch and my husband had the reuben sandwich. Both were delicious. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. Nice decor and very clean. It would be nice when the weather is better to sit outside to take i the scenery on the water.

Had some family come in town and took them to the Foolish Frog for dinner and cocktails. No reservations but we were seated right away and it was AMAZING as always! My brothers ordered calamari and Deviled crab as starters, entrees were short ribs (OMG), Asian Lacquered Salmon (perfect ), Chicken Poblan....(Cajun dish) Incredible! And we had the Homemade Key...

It's a fun and funky spot with great ambience and food. We sat outside on the deck. Our sandwiches were delicious and the beer was cold. The server was cheerful and accommodating. They have live music on the weekends, but we were there for lunch on a Tuesday so we didn't sample that.

Four of us had dinner at Foolish Frog and the food was not good - calamari appetizer had so much breading that you could not taste the calamari, ribs had a hint of lighter fluid, shrimp with pasta was not good - at least the shrimp was edible but the cheese was not a good combination with the other flavors,...

We are so sorry that you had a bad experience. We get rave reviews for our food especially the ribs so are really surprised you didn't enjoy your dining experience. We smoke our ribs with oak wood and don't even use any type of lighter fluid. Our calamari is always lightly breaded and served with an incredible sirachi aioli. We... More

Just finished eating here at the Foolish Frog, here for a few days for my brothers marine graduation.. I wasn't hungry so I just got the fish tacos which the waitress recommended. While we were waiting for our food the waitress brought us out some bread, which worked out to 1 bread stick per person. They were OK but not... More
