Stopped in for lunch. Nice menu selection. Patio seating was very nice, watching the local birds. Shrimp was super fresh, fries were good. Burger was a little on the overdone side. Staff was super friendly and attentive. Very busy at lunch hour and loud inside so decided on the patio.

Four of us ate on the patio one evening and it was a beautiful marsh view. Our server was good and attentive, and the food was decent, but there were people smoking heavily on the patio, which annoyed both us and the other tables that were closer to the group smoking. Beyond that, it was an enjoyable meal.

A good menu with lots of options. Much of the food is locally grown and/or harvested. The staff was very friendly, and the views were nice.

Great staff with wonderful food selections from the area. Games on the porch are fun. Loved the drinks specials.

Maybe New Year's Day is not the best time to visit. We have eaten here before, and always been very pleased. The staff was friendly as usual, service was pretty good, the food a bit disappointing. My lady's fried chicken was great, the sides not so much. My PEI mussels were OK, but the sauce seemed to have been made... More

We had a nice family dinner just after Christmas so it was quiet but a few locals filled the bar and a few tables. The food was very good but a bit pricey. The service was quick and friendly. We had a pasta dish that was delicious and generous, a stuffed fish that was very good and chargrilled oysters that... More

the server, David, he was pleasant - and seemed to enjoy his position, he introduced his co-worker, so that if I needed anything and he was otherwise occupied, I would be assisted immediately.

Typical American restaurant where battered this and that reigns but all the same is a good place to visit and eat. It seems to be popular with local residents and is certainly better than many other restaurants but it is by no means haute cuisine. Just go...without great expectations...and have fun with friendly staff.

A group of picky eaters decided to try the Foolish Frog for lunch. It was a very cool, crisp, Saturday afternoon. We decided to sit outside with the beautiful view of the marsh. Everyone there was so accommodating. They turned on the outside heaters for us, the wait for service and food was immediate. OK, the food...Amazing: The char grilled... More

The food was delicious and came with ample amount of food. If you aren't too hungry, you could share. The ribeye and fried okra were amazing. I highly recommend the alligator bites too! Big groups will likely have to sit outside.
