I went to Blue Wing Frog last night, having stopped unexpectedly to spend the night in Front Royal (long day on the road taking kid to college). Within minutes of walking inside the restaurant I’d texted my family “it’s weird and perfect and I love...More

I was eager to try this place for several reasons. Good reviews, vegetarian options, etc. The service is terrible. There was nothing to indicate that the restaurant is self-serve until you read it on the menu. We had no clue that you had to get...More

So we were looking for a place to have lunch in Front Royal before starting the Skyline Drive and we discovered this eclectic place. You order at the counter and then set down and they bring you the food. The food selection was wide and...More

Don't let the downtown appearance fool you, this is good homemade goodies. The wait staff was very friendly, and it seemed everyone there was happy. I will definitely go back when in Front Royal. They have a nice selection of craft beers also.

Quality food in relaxed setting. Outdoor patio with umbrellas was perfect to relax. Dog water bowl present. Will stop by again. Location is within the town.

The food was good. But the service was ridiculous. We walked in and wandered through the dining room because there was no sign indicating what we should do (it is seat yourself so we guessed correctly). The waitress (maybe owner?) brought us menus piecemeal, advised...More

I am sorry that you felt like an invitation to your kids that "if they didn't see something they liked on our somewhat unique menu to tell us what they did want and we would make it" was somehow belittling. Nothing could be further from...More

We also ordered at the counter and then the owner delivered the food to us. He did check in on us half way through our meal as well. Very large portions, and yummy baked goods. :)

Casual, eclectic and fun menu. Brunch on Sundays, picnics, take-out or dine-in lunch or dinner. Hearty meat dishes but vegetarian/vegan friendly with lots of entree options for the latter. Gluten free options available as well
