I heard great things about the Toasted Frog, and wanted to find out for myself. Ordered the fish tacos and a house wine. Colleague ordered the Vietnamese pizza. Both were delicious. Service was fine. We both really enjoyed a nice relaxing dinner. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for those looking for a nice variety casual dinner

We probably had an uncommon experience. Chef Swagger created, upon special request, a menu of all Native foods. Are three-course menu was incredible.

Went with her friend to celebrate our birthdays. The restaurant was only about a third full. Five or six employees standing around the bar area visiting. Got our Fried pickles they were medium warm at tops. Got our dinner it was medium to cold. Megan didn't come back to find out how the food was until we were done eating.... More

While visiting the South Dakota state capitol, an assistant Supreme Court clerk heard we were traveling north to Bismarck. She enthusiastically recommend we stop at her favorite restaurant, The Toasted Frog. She was so animated, we just had to do it. We were not disappointed. Our server, Kyle, recommended we start with a house specialty, fried cheesy pickles. Now I... More

My husband and I ate here after a shop owner recommend a seafood lavosh. Basically a pizza on a cracker. It was interesting. Good but not fabulous. We are real foodies, so it would take a lot to wow us. We had a house Malbec and it was great. The service was wonderful and very attentive. The menu looked good.... More

We shared several things - the portions were gigantic! The sweet potato fries were fantastic. The fish tacos were kind of bland. The lavosh was too cheesy. The service was top notch and I'll be back to try some more.

Love this place! Excellent food. Excellent service. And the bartenders know how to make a drink/ cocktail. This is one of my favorite dinner places in Bismarck! Great menu (some of my favorites: app-fried cheesy pickles, salad- Caprese, dinner Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola Butter). Worth every penny.

The food is fine--standard bar/pub food with some interesting local selections i.e. elk. We all had sandwiches and salads. They were good but nothing to write home about. The service was about the same; it was a little delayed here and there, and the server was not as attentive as she could have been, but there were no major mistakes.... More
