A lively bar with a great selection of craft draft beers and reasonably priced drinks, just off State street.

Found this place by accident. Was next door to our hotel. Came for lunch and some drinks. Wide menu variety. Excellent and huge burgers. They offer a burger of the month too. Plenty of cocktail options with a ton beers on tap. Staff very friendly and attentive. When we first got there a live band was playing mid day which... More

Great tap beer list, shown on screens which was pretty cool. They changed tv to our game and served us a great pulled pork quesadilla, what more could we want? Also had live music on a Saturday afternoon which was nice. The only negative is that it is a bit dark and dreary inside.

This bar plays a lot of 90s music and has a great drink selection. We love visiting every time we are in the city. It's laid back and has a great staff.

Staff was attentive, courteous but not hovering. The food was, just excellent. Minestrone was the soup of the day and it was the best I've ever had that wasn't homemade by a Mediterranean cook. They have an interesting mix of burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. We had a grilled cheese with gruyère and basil, and a seasonal wrap with Chicken and... More

We ducked in to get out of the unbearable heat and checked out the menu...they were just getting ready to open. They had a wide variety of burgers, wraps and sandwiches, and cold beer, so we stayed. Live music was starting by the end of our meal.

Blue Frog has the local watering hole feel down cold. We had a weekday evening team event here and really enjoyed great service and great food and drink. It is not a huge place and does get noisy when they are packed or with a large group, but the atmosphere makes up for it. Definitely worth a visit for the... More

High quality food from cool propieters. Soups excellent, as well as sandwiches. Close to langhem and trump hotels, worth the one block walk. Inside looks like soorts bar, but food is WAY better than typical sports bar grub. Club sandwich best I have had anywhere.
