I reserved the Wine Room for a small private, very special dinner. It was wonderful! The food was superb, the service excellent. We have been to Froggy’s many times over the years and have never been disappointed.

Worst food we ever had.... no taste, no texture. Every single meal came with same over cooked Brussels, and undercooked carrots.... nursing home food.....total waste of money and time .

I've been there three time and only because we were invited. I'd never go there to spend my own money! The food is absolutely average and doesn't cost the money they charge. I'm not sure why there's so much brouhaha around this place.

I took my adult granddaughter to Froggy’s & we had the Fixed Menu - appetizer or soup, sorbet or salad, entree & dessert. I had pate plate, sorbet, duck with blueberries, & chocolate mousse cake. Never had a bad meal & great service.
