Eat the Seafood

We had the shrimp and it was yummy. They offer barbeque and other fare but you are about 5 miles from the sea. Eat the seafood! The Frog has nice ambiance and service was good. I will be back.

Good seafood selection but they had an appetizer special for a duck bacon roll that was in a yogurt sauce. I thought it sounded interesting. It was a mistake. It tasted like grease and when I got the tab this "special" was priced at $16. So annoying for such a high price for such a disappointing selection. I did not... More

Foolish Frog - Great name but that is about where the great stops. Food was slightly better than average. Server forgot bread and brought the wrong entrée but he really was a nice young man and gave it a good effort. Just a simple mistake, or two. Nothing big really. We got a glimpse of the kitchen floor as the... More

Stopped in for a late lunch and had the place to ourselves, which was nice as we were able to enjoy a relaxed lunch and chat with the owner about the history of the place. Why order anything other than shrimp here in the very center of shrimping central?? So that's what we did; I ordered a half fried shrimp/half... More

Great but the waitress was annoying and loud. We wanted a relaxing place to eat and have a few drinks but could not wait to get out of there. Togo order might be the way to go!

Overpriced and she-crab soup, which is excellent, is not a regular item. For tourists and transplants only.

Stopped here because we saw a large number of cars and thought, well it must be good. We were only partially right. I ordered ribs, after all I'm in South Carolina, they must know ribs. Wrong. Sauce was great but they were so far from fall off the bone I couldn't even pull them apart. I have NEVER returned food... More

Stopped for lunch and ordered the spinach salad and sweet potato fries, both of which were unremarkable. The waitress wasn't friendly or attentive. The view was the best part!
