I've been coming to OBX for nearly 20 years and this place has been a mainstay for longer than that. But it seems like the Froggy Dog is living on legacy now. The service is okay, a little slow, but friendly. But the food is just not very good. Seafood entrees tend to be tough and/or overly greasy. The sides... More

Had a delicious shrimp dinner, good hush puppies & really good Cole Slaw, which I am very picky about. Be sure & give it a try.

We walked into this establishment after a long drive from Pennsylvania. We were tired and hungry. They immediately made us welcome and comfortable. The food was plentiful and delicious. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. The chicken fingers were huge. Hush puppies a little overdone, but still good. The lunch menu seemed to offer a better selection but we... More

Family and I had breakfast there this morning on our way back home from the beach. Server was excellent and friendly. Food was tasty. Portions were not huge by American standards, but plenty big enough to satisfy. Very good flavorful coffee.

We stopped here because of the catchy name, but we arrived between the lunch and dinner hour which doesn't start until 4:30. Our waiter was great as were the crab puff appetizers. Our meal of crab cakes were pretty good but not the best that we have ever had. All in all a nice relaxing meal with great service.

We have been going here for over 30 years...it has changed ownership several times during that period....it has always been a place where the owners strive to please all customers, even difficult parties with lots of young kids. There is actually a play area for kids...good tavern food at reasonable prices...nothing fancy, but filling and satistfactory

This is the 2nd we have tried to come here for breakfast and have been turned away. We were told they were no longer still serving breakfast at 10:15am. Who stops serving breakfast before this time on w Sunday?!?? The staff is rude here as well and aren't the least bit bothered if you stay or go!

We stopped in on our way out of Kinnakeet. Standard breakfast fare, it was above par. Our server made our biscuits and they were divine. Hasn't changed a bit in 25 years.

This place is big and centrally located and gets a lot of traffic. I've never understood why. The bar has a bad smell to it, the wine selection is minimal and not very good. The food is fine, but nothing special. There are other much better places on the island.

We went there for lunch and drinks, they were out of the appetizers and soups that we wanted, but Chris quickly had alternative suggestions for us. The service was fast and friendly, Chris did an amazing job of serving us and entertaining us with stories, loved his personality and charisma. We really enjoyed our visit at the Froggy Dog, would...
