“Great Night Out”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

This place is very busy! Get there early. When you go inside it doesn't seem like your in Grand Forks, ND but in downtown Minneapolis. Food and service is great. We always get what the waiter suggests and have never been disappointed. Great place to go before or after a show.

“Worth the long wait”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

This is a VERY popular place. We had to wait a long time to get in.... didn't plan ahead. But the food was fabulous and the service was very good. Try the fried pickles. I didn't know if I would like them but they were excellent.

“Good Food and Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

A group of six from our company had dinner on a Friday Evening. The Trip Advisor ratings prompted our visit and we are very thankful we reserved one week ahead of time.

Surprisingly good wine list for a restaurant this size. The place was packed and everyone clearly were having a great time. The owner was present and was very busy ensuring guests were being served promptly and that everyone was enjoying themselves.

We had Buffalo Wings and Fried Pickles for appies. The wings were incredible! They tasted really spicy and had a unique flavor that borders on addictive. I will definitely return for the wings. The fried pickles were tasty but not recommended if you are concerned about salt, cholesterol or calories.

Several had the filet mignon and found it perfectly prepared and really tasty. The New York Strip was cooked just right but slightly overdone around the edges. The Lamb Burger is tasty with the sweet potato fries a good side dish. The Mahi Mahi is also a good choice.

The Wasabi Mashed potatoes come with any meal. The flavor is really good -- better than if you had horse radish -- subtle flavor but not hot. Potato sides are Wasabi Mashed, Fries, Sweet Potatoes and Rice Pilaf. A baked potato would be a good side to have but they don't offer it.

The beer selection was really good. They have Heiniken, Newcastle and Blue Moon on tap. They have a wide selection of bottled beer. They also server Glenmorangie - a single malt Scotch that is very fine!

The desert selection is very attractive but we were full by then. We did order the Pear Pie with ice cream. It was not remarkable and would avoid it next time.

The atmosphere is festive and there is a wide range of patrons including younger singles, couples and older people. The noise level was acceptable but could be loud for some poeple.

I would highly recommend The Toasted Frog for anyone -- I was really impressed!

The service, the food and the drinks are all great. You must arrive at the restaurant early or you may need to be put on the waiting list. Menu could be expanded.
