This used to be a favorite spot, but not anymore. The food has gone downhill, portion sizes decreased and prices increased by as much as a third. Crossing this off our list!

I really enjoyed the food. The view of the marsh on a sunny day was incredible. The only reason it's not 5 star is that you could hear the chefs from the back talking about other patrons order changes and questions in a negative way. Other than that, it was fun.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent! I had the crab cakes and mashed potatoes and they were great! I tried my sister's fish taco and loved that too! Will definitely be back! Highly recommend! Loved eating on the back deck!

This was our second visit to the Foolish Frog, hoping it would be better a few years later... shame on us to think so. From the terrible parking conditions to the cleanliness of the restaurant & restrooms to the terrible food, our experience was overly disappointing! Some dishes were overly spiced to unenjoyable to dishes that were 'forgotten' to be... More

We had a large group of 17 with reservations. Management had us seated all together and we had all been here before for some terrific meals. Our meals ranged from blackened fish, shrimp and grits, crab cakes and steaks and ribs. My personal grilled Mahi Mahi Lafayette looked deliceous and was a plentiful portion however it was severely scorched on... More

Four of us were in town for a Marine graduation and stop here for dinner. We had not made reservations so were seated on the patio which was really fine. We're from Upstate NY so we fully enjoyed the view of the march behind us. The manager pointed out the bird feeder with beautiful buntings and finches. We ordered crab... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. Our first experience was bad, but we decided to give it another chance. Our server was nice enough and took our drink and appetizer orders. Our appetizer of grilled oysters arrived quickly, but that was the highlight of the meal. Upon ordering, we discovered many menu items were not available including kids'... More

Great service, beautiful outdoor (marsh) view on deck and delicious food! We had the grilled oysters, rack of ribs and the mahi mahi -- all wonderful! Our server was attentive and helpful, and each of the members of the staff were friendly and made sure we were taken care of. Our new favorite restaurant in the area!

I was really excited to go here. It looked so neat from the outside, and with a name like "Foolish Frog" we thought it was going to be really neat. Our waitress was really, really friendly, so I really hate to give them a bad review, but it was my least favorite place in the whole area. We sat on... More

We had a recommendation from a shop owner so we didn't read the reviews before we went. We had 3 adults and 4 kids. One set of kids shared the snow crab. It was expensive but fine. The other set of kids shared the rib plate. It was a full rack and the amount of food I'd expect for the... More
