Enjoyed the infusion burger--all the fixings are inside the burger. Excellent fries, friendly wait staff and nice selection of draft beers.

I love froggies ! Ok, maybe not the spiral staircase going up and down, but the food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. A great place to meet up with friends.
