Frog Hollow, located in downtown Augusta, serves what I'd call pumped-up Southern Eclectic. This is my second visit - my first was in 2012 and I was less than impressed. I liked it better this go-round - more Prince than Frog this time!
Neighborhood: Little shops and restaurants, near the river walk. Nice for walking around, but pay attention to your surroundings, just like anywhere else.
Parking: Plenty of on-street parking.
Décor: A little dark, but nice. Lots of wood, booths, nice bar area.
Bar: Full bar, with house menu offered if you choose to eat there.
Wine: Limited but good by-the-glass selection.
Beer: Draft and bottle. Features several local beers.
Greeted: Immediately by one of three hostesses. Had a reservation, but asked for and got a seat at the bar instead. (And you should make a reservation. This place is popular. Walk-ins can generally find a seat at the bar, with a little bit of patience.)
Server: Since my server was a bartender, I was greeted immediately. Both bartenders took care of me, and both did a good job. Both were very knowledgeable about the menu and food preparation.
Drinks: Ordered wine, came quickly, generous pour.
Bread: Offered and declined
Water: Immediately upon request
Dinner was appetizers. Had the Heirloom Tomato Salad. Here I found the same problem as last year – nothing exceptional about the tomatoes. They were a little bit tasteless and sort of dry. The presentation was very pretty, and the feta, pickled onions, and dressing were all good, but I won’t order it again. I also had the mussels, and they were very good, fresh and plump. White wine and herb broth was delicious. Came with charred bread, but I declined that. Had a side of the collards, which were ok.
Service was attentive and friendly throughout the meal, and I wasn’t rushed.
Declined coffee & dessert, although several local regulars raved about different choices.
Bill came promptly upon request. Dinner for 1 (wine, 2 appetizers and side dish, including tip) came to about $35.
Child friendly: Suitable for well-behaved children.
Outdoor seating: Limited outdoor seating on sidewalk in front.
Items of interest: Frog Hollow is a big proponent of farm-to-table, and the use of fresh local ingredients.
