We went to The Froggy Dog during a recent family vacation to the OBX. Atmosphere was ok, not very crowded. Nice little playroom off the dining area for the young kiddos to play. I ordered a combination platter, seared scallops and shrimp. They were awful! The scallops were over cooked and dry. The shrimp were hard as rocks, so hard... More

Ate here 2 years ago when we stayed in Avon. Decided to return this year, even though we were staying in Corolla. Well worth the drive. Live music was being played on the outdoor waiting area. The Owner Fred greeted us as we checked in. Service was great, food was great, alot of us got the seafood medley or some... More

Repeat visit (l have 2 tshirts). We were there early (5:40) for dinner. Seated immediately and our drink order taken. The waiter explained the off menu selections and catch of the day. I chose the catch of the day, whiting, and my wife had the shrimp and crab combo. Entrees come with 2 sides and hush puppies. The hush puppies... More

Ate here last week. Got right in for dinner. Seated our large group at a big round table. Plenty of room. Large selection of seafood. Had clam chowder which was good but not filling. Wait time between ordering and being served was very, very long. Pricey, but that's true of most places in the area. Overall it was good. I'd... More

We were looking for a bite to eat after visiting the light house on our way back to Corolla, say mid afternoon. You smell damp wetness soon as you walk in. A lovely young European girl waited on us but bless her soul didn't have a clue what was going on. We were never told about the daily special, 2... More

We stopped while waiting for our house to be ready. We had a couple drinks and appetizers. They were good. Service was ok. Pricey though.

Went for dinner after arriving at our rental at 9 PM. This restaurant was the closet. Foood was ordinary, but hoest. Service was friendly.

Was a little unsure about stopping given the mixed reviews. After eating the scallops and getting good service have no regrets that we did. Based on the reviews, I'm guessing this is one of those timing is everything places. Well, we'll be back again and hopefully the experience will be the same as this time.

This restaurant is over forty years of evolution since the 1970's. The Froggy Dog is a large, wood-paneled place characteristics of many OBX venues serving a wide menu of American & seafood entrees. The restaurant is broken up into three dining areas: a large dining room (perfect for social functions, wedding receptions, etc.) is great for families, with a kiddie... More

Service needs work. We waited for about thirty minutes to be seated and there were only four tables with people and the rest was empty. The food was good but I couldn't enjoy it because the rest of the experience was so bad.

Hello Shanna, While we are happy that you had found our food to be impressive, we regret to hear that the rest of your experience was not up to par. We apologize that the service had been lacking. Although one dining area may have appeared to have been empty, this is an area that remains closed unless it is the... More
