Hands down, best dishes in town. Our calamari was some of the best we have ever had. The dipping sauce was amazing. really made the dish. For dinner I had the shrimp and grits, best in Beaufort!!! Caleb was our bartender, he was attentive and friendly. He also made us a delicious blue berry cocktail for dessert.I promise The Foolish... More

The shrimp and grits had six tiny shrimp in a flour tasting based sauce. There was no sign of the waitress after she sat down the plate. So, choked my last three shrimp down with no soothing beverage to pave the way. Manager could care less that I was troubled, actually shrugged. She took $5 off my check.

Lunch seating available. Four of us ladies ordered different meals. All wonderful! Accommodated my request to leave off certain spices. :-). Wait staff very friendly! Was a hot hot day so we chose inside dining. Great a/c. One friend slipped on summer sweater, but I was just fine!

From amazing cocktails to piquant appetizers that are prepared with panache, this was a VERY promising visit to a brand new restaurant for me. The entree did not fail to meet the promise of these first few tastes, and all the diners with me agreed; the beef filet was tender and at the same time substantial with an herbed butter... More

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 recently went to foolish frog to get a quick drink with a friend of mine. not much of a bar crowd & bartender was so so, we thought we wouldn't come back again but a few days later decided to test the waters again. 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
