We have been going to the Froggy Dog in the Outer Banks for a lot of years. This year was the best so far, thanks to Chris & Paul, who made our visit memorable and fun. Thanks guys for a great visit. - Larry & Tina from WV

I ordered the rib eye with fries and coleslaw. The meat was so tough I could not enjoy it. Only flavor was from the A-1 Steak Sauce that I had to pour on. Additionally, we had just received our appetizers and 30-sec. later the waitress comes with our entrees....moreover, the drinks were weak considering the hefty 10-dollar well drink cost.... More

We stopped at The Froggy Dog for lunch during our last OBX trip. The food arrived quickly and the service was great. We will be back!

Maybe it was the time of the season but we were not impressed at all by this place. Dark room, closed too early and the food was average.

Went with a group of 11 to the Froggy Dog and the service was quick considering the size of the group. The drinks arrived and the speciality drinks left a lot to be desired. My wife ordered the Skinny Dipper which was a tequila based drink was far from what she expected and another from our group had the Hatteras... More

The first time I visited the Froggy Dog was 31 years ago. My friends and I dug into the first basket of frog legs we had ever seen, let alone eaten. 31 years and now 4 kids later. This is a must eat/experience if you are in the outer banks. It is the entire experience. The atmosphere, the food, the... More

Haven't eaten there in years, food not great for the price. Used to be one of the only restaurants but now that there are so many other choices I wouldn't bother

We were looking forward to our dinner here, (as last year was really good) however we left with great disappointment. Menu is scaled WAY back for dinner.... We were hungry for burgers and more "comfort food" My spaghetti Was bland. Wish we had more selection and more "taste". The turtle cheesecake however was delicious. Service was just mediocre. Waited a... More

Hello, We are glad that you enjoyed the cheesecake! However, to hear that the other dishes served to you were lackluster is troublesome to us. We apologize that you did not enjoy your meal and that the service was a bit inattentive. We will be addressing this with our staff members but do wish that you had brought your discontent... More

We had a party of 8 with a couple young children mixed in. Our young waitress was quick and on the ball and the food was fantastic. We were there around 2:30 in the afternoon so I'm not sure how the dinner rush is but we had a fantastic experience and would visit again in a heartbeat.

We stopped in for a drink after riding the Jetovator which is located behind the restaurant. Nice choice of beers and good food. Restaurant is clean and tastefully decorated. Must stop next time we are in for a vacation.
