Thad is very hospitable. Ask of him. Brittney was wonderful. Her smiles can light a room of darkness. I love travelling to eat different type of food and Thad was my specialist. The frog legs were excellent, Okra was superb and the Alligator meat was wonderful. I went to Foolish Frog twice. The first impression on the first day was... More

The shrimp and grits were almost inedible, they were so salty. The macaroni and cheese on the kids menu was Kraft macaroni and cheese. I was very surprised that it was not homemade. The gator stew had good flavor, but only had one piece of meat in the whole bowl. The service was great - very friendly staff. The Cajun... More

Took my parents here based on rave reviews I'd heard. My husband liked his crab a lot, however my parents and I found our food to be okay but less than amazing. The ambiance was nice and the prices were reasonable. I'd be willing to give it another chance!

The Frog is one of the few restaurants at our end of the island that has higher end cuisine. The steaks are prepared well. The sandwiches are good. Sunday brunch is excellent.

You can't beat Foolish Frog for the food and the Southern hospitality! Try the fried frog legs and the crab cake sandwich. You won't be disappointed. And if you have the pleasure to sit with Thad for a bit, you will come out the better. What a great guy and a local treasure. We're so glad we made this our... More

Great food and all staff were very nice! There were regulars that the staff knew by name, so obviously it's great! The fare is hearty, fried and delicious. My husband's Mahi BLT was fantastic and I very much enjoyed my Zydeco Catfish Piqante PoBoy. The waitress and the manager were very sweet and attentive to our 11 month old son.... More

We drove 1100 miles from Texas and this is always our first stop to eat. And the first meal is always shrimp and grits with Tasso gravy. The best ever.

Frogmore is a neat little town in South Carolina just outside Beaufort. I suppose the name of the stew (Frogmore) originated here. Anyway...back to the Frog...the place is interesting to say the least and the food that we had, crispy okra, baked flounder with crab stuffing and dirty rice, was very good. Especially the dirty rice. Prices, however, are a... More

When we walked in we were a little scared since we're not use to be able to see the servers stand at the kitchen window waiting on food but it was wonderful. Foolish Frog is a must! Managers all were very helpful and friendly. My daughter wanted to go back the next night she loved it so much.

Thank love_nsc
