We live in Beaufort but when we go to the Foolish Frog, feel like we are vacationing :). The menu changes each season and they have nightly chalkboard specials which always features the fresh catch of the day. Love the creative sauces and even the fried okra have a kick to them with an incredible Trinidad type sauce. The Whole... More

I had the lunch portion of shrimp and chips. The 6 deep fried shrimp were big and juicy and were served with a small side of slaw in a basket of house-made potato chips. Perfect! Service was good, very attentive. Air conditioning was WAY too cold inside. Next time I will sit on the marsh view patio outside.

I went here with my husband. I had the shrimp and grits. It was good but there weren't a lot of shrimp. The portion of grits was plentiful. However, I felt like the prices were a little steep. I probably wouldn't return since there are more reasonable options nearby.

Had lunch with the family & everyone was pleased with what they'd ordered. Fresh seafood & interesting array of signature cocktails. Service is attentive & reasonable for lunch (although the dinner menu did look a little more pricey for the surroundings). Would definitely go back.

I had a much better experience. the bartender was great! he engaged in conversation and... More

Lots of seafood, kids like the calamari and fried pickles. Miss the old menu with crab casserole and chocolate mouse. Great marsh views, can eat outside weather dependent. It is very loud though with the hard surfaces. We say that every year (unless we eat outside) and in the past if they have a band we try to leave before... More

We really enjoyed dinner at the Foolish Frog. The view and atmosphere was very serene. The food was very good as well. Definitely go back next visit to Fripp Island!

They serve local caught seafood and we tried 4 of the fresh caught items and enjoyed all of them. Some people may not like the sin they put on some their dishes - but we all did. We got to set outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of the marshy wetlands that the restaurant in built alongside. The staff... More

OK, we finally made the trip to the Foolish Frog. Have been hesitant, because some reviews were low due to service and price. Here is our take. We went for lunch. First the good. The food. I had a fish sandwich and my wife had the shrimp basket. Very tasty and loved the homemade fries. Came with six shrimp -... More
