Went for Sunday brunch. Two of us had the chef's omelet, one the crab cake sandwich. The omelets were brown and very over cooked. The crab cake looked like a fried egg. Our server, Amber, was negligible at best. Don't think we will be going back

They serve dinner but we had already eaten so we just ordered a couple of drinks. The food looked good. The drinks were short pours. Everything was measured and seemed to be measured on the skimpy side. The bartender was nice though.

Ate here for lunch since dinner is pricey. Food is good but menu is primarily seafood. If you do not like seafood this is not your place, the primary reason I did not rate them a 5. This is a trendy restaurant with panoramic marsh views. There is outdoor seating on the marsh with cooling fans to provide relief from... More

We ordered a bowl of Sea Food Soup, it was delicious! But everywhere I order a bowl of soup I get at list 20% more. The soup was very tasty but very overpriced. Fish Tacos were good, I can the the fish and veggies tasted good too. The server was very nice and friendly. Before the server came another lady... More

I stopped in at the Foolish Frog at the recommendation of a fellow restauranteur to try the Frog's Fabulous Bloody Mary Bar. The bar had just shut down. The waitress was really great and had a Bloody Mary prepared for me with all the toppings! The tomato juice was kickin' spicy but not too hot. Atop the mixture was a... More

Had a great meal! Enjoyed the the crispy okra, crab cakes and cold beer! The best part was the service. Brittney was the best! She made the evening delightful! She gave guidance with the menu and made sure we were taken care of all evening. Will return for sure!

There is so much good food in this area - and Foolish Frog is no exception. But the views over the marsh area is wonderful. Watching the herons, storks and ibis hunting for their lunch while enjoying ours was wonderful. If you eat on the deck, they offer bug spray for you if you want, but we chose a window... More

Stopped for a late lunch. Service was great. Views on the deck were great. The interior looked quite nice too. My shrimp basket with fries was good. My guest had a caesar salad with chicken but the whole plate came warm, including the lettuce and dressing. The dinner menu looked good so I'll go back and check it out again.

The Frog has a great, seafood based menu. And unlike a local competitor not everything is FRIED. Eclectic and original with enough of the standards to keep most diners happy. Great service and beautiful marsh views. Try it; you'll like it.

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
