Beautiful view if the tide is in

The outdoor dinning is fun - if there are lots of bugs, they do offer bug spray - important in the "Lowcountry". Wait staff and food fun and good seafood.

Crab cakes were fantastic! I love to try all the variations of crab cakes I can find...especially those crab cakes that are made with crab! The ones here didn't disappoint at all. The sauce was also a great complement. My youngest daughter has heard me drone on about how fantastic crab cakes are and she had her first ones here.... More

We decided to make a reservation here while vacationing on Fripp Island. So let's get the bad out of the way. I called to make our reservation and the time we wanted they only had outside seating so I made the reservation but after some thought decided that we would rather be inside so I called back to change the...

Had lunch on a Saturday around 1:00 PM... they didn't seem too busy. My wife ordered a fried oyster basket and I ordered a shrimp po'boy. Our waiter seemed to be overwhelmed with getting the drinks out to his tables and kind of neglected getting the food out. We sat near the area where the kitchen put the plates out... More

Been here twice and great service plus good food. Had a shrimp and scallop basket. Scallops were excellent the first time but under-cooked the second. Others with me had fried fish sandwiches.All came with huge portions of tasty french fires Fried green tomatoes were okay but nothing to write home about. Very personable owner who seems to take a good... More

My husband and I went there for a late lunch and the steamed shrimp, fried pickles and slaw are amazing! It's casual fine dinning.

There sure isn't much on these barrier islands that looks decent enough to go to. We found the Foolish Frog and were pleasantly surprised. The wait staff couldn't be nicer. The menu was quite extensive. The marsh views were fantastic. The wine was nicely chilled. Make it a point to stop in. You won't be disappointed!!

I had the crab cakes and they were delicious! My friend had he shrimp and grits but didn't like that the shrimp still it's tails. The portions were plentiful. The cost was a little high.
