Our dinner menu is varied, serving appetizers, soup and salads, lavosh, wood-fired pizzas, sandwiches, as well as entrees. We have nightly changing specials, including fresh fish flown in each week from Honolulu, Hawaii. Whether it's a pound of wings and a couple of beers, or a nice steak and a bottle of wine, The Toasted Frog can accommodate you.YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OF AGE TO DINE AT THE TOASTED FROG.

“Not So Much...”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The name of this place piqued our curiosity, so we went in for drinks and dinner, but never did eat, because it just didn't "smell" right. It needs cleaning and it needs atmosphere. The bar is interesting, and the wine list is good, but we left after one drink and ate elsewhere.

“Treated like a queen”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We had been on the road for three days, headed to Montana. Fargo had left us wanting, but Bismarck saved the day. When we asked about a nice restaurant for dinner, The Toasted Frog was suggested as the best date place in town, and it proved to be so. Roasted pork tenderloin, juicy and delicious, with whipped white cheddar mashed potatoes for me, and Mahi Mahi fish tacos for my companion. The scotch was poured liberally, and when dinner was over, they put the Green Bay Packer game on for us to watch (even though it was a preseason Thursday night game). Everyone was so friendly, and very professional. Honestly, we would consider driving all the way back, just for dinner. Great job!

“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Set up as a bar and it is a bar. At the same time, the menu pleasantly surprised us with its variety. Friendly service and excellent food. Located across the street from Pirogue; both are excellent choices for dinner.

“A toast to the Frog”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Nice all around: nice decor, nice service, very nice food. My wife enjoyed the walleye and I liked the prime rib sandwich. Nice job, Mr Frog.

“A really enjoyable evening with great food, cocktails and staff.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Having read positive reviews for the Toasted Frog on TA, we read the menu while wandering around downtown Bismarck checking out other restaurants but the menu with the added bonus of outside seating clinched the Toasted Frog for us. The restaurant is very large inside and very popular with only around 8 tables outside on the sidewalk, which we decided to wait for. We waited for a good twenty minutes on a very busy Friday night but it was worth waiting for. Between us we had Chicken Noodle Soup, Baked Brie, Fish Tacos, Margherita Pizza, a Pasta Special and Smores. For drinks we had a Lemon Drop Cocktail and a Nutty Raspberry Cocktail ($8 each). The staff were very friendly and the front of house guy (so sorry we did not get your name) was great and gave us a complimentary cocktail to try while he spent time chatting away to us. Once the sun went down, the temperature dropped rapidly and we were the only diners who remained outside; they have only recently started putting tables outside but if they invest in some patio or wall mounted heaters, they will be able to extend the outside season and also continue using the tables after the sun has set. The bill was $85 including the cocktails but before the tip and it was all very enjoyable; we would definitely recommend The Toasted Frog and would return if back in the Bismarck area.
