Friends visiting from out of town and of course took them to the Foolish Frog knowing they would get fabulous unique dishes that are not available anywhere else in town. Started with the clam appetizer which was lightly breaded clams served on pea shoots and greens - yum!! We ordered the Mahi tacos which had avocado and fresh salsa and... More

I was visiting Fripp Island on a business trip. I arrived later than expected and was hungry. We were driving through Frogmore and saw this place and stopped. We were seated immediately. Should have been my first clue for a Friday evening. The menu is very scarce with a few entrees. We decided to get the PEI mussels as an... More

We just returned from the Foolish Frog in Frogmore, SC. The only positive comment I can make is there was no fried seafood on the menu. Unfortunately, the entrees we tried left a lot to be desired. There were three in our party. we started with an appetizer of fried green tomatoes and consisted of five thin breaded slices of... More

This restaurant had excellent reviews so we decided to try it while staying nearby. It seems to be very popular but in my opinion, it was too hectic. I would have liked to have one of the empty patio tables, but the young hostess had no intention of letting that happen. There were empty tables on the patio when we... More

My husband and I were excited to visit the Foolish Frog. We looked over the menu and decided that there were so many items we wanted to try that we would have to make several dinner trips there while we were vacationing. Much to our disappointment, our first dinner didn't meet our expectations. We ordered the fish tacos, frog legs... More

Just got back from an excellent meal here - let me say that we were very impressed with almost every aspect of our meal. We were warmly greeted by our hosts who held the door open for us and seated us in a place of our liking. We chose to sit outside overlooking the tidal marsh - beautiful view -... More

Without a doubt, the best fried okra I have ever had! We went here with family that live in the area and my aunt said she drives 45 minutes to go here just for the okra. They fry the whole pod in some kind of salty breading that clumps on the okra and serve it with a delightful sauce. We... More
