My Airbnb hostess recommended this restaurant and I'm glad I stopped in for lunch. I was seated outside on a lovely covered patio with a view of the marshland, and my waitress, Raelyn, was so pleasant. I had a crab cake sandwich and topped that off with a bowl of salted caramel ice cream. My day was complete! Definitely worth... More

I literally just received these oysters. Look how melted the ice is, when we're they shucked? how much would you pay for this? Im guessing they were shucked this morning and put on a tray. Terribly disappointed.

Great food and a relaxed atmosphere. I loved sitting on the patio on a lovely, sunny February day. This place is not pretentious-just good food served by friendly people in a beautiful location.

I gave the Frog only four stars because my brother, who lives nearby, reports that many of the dinner selections are average at best. However, I have to say that the "crawfish yum yum ya ya" that I had for lunch ($12) is one of the most delectable dishes I've ever eaten. Service was terrific. Menu is Gullah-influenced.

We live downtown, and walk everywhere, so we haven't been out to the Foolish Frog for a while. Well, that will stop. We'll be headed out there as often as possible. The Sunday Brunch was great. We were greeted like valued customers, got immediate and friendly professional service, and enjoyed every bite. The atmosphere is cheerful, comfortable, and cozy. Thanks... More

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.
