“great beer selection & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Went to the Black Frog a couple times during our weeklong stay in Vancouver, once for lunch and once for a private party, and both times found the food very tasty and the beer selection quite extensive (and also tasty). Loved the Gastown location, and it was nice to sit and stare out at the harbor. The staff was very friendly and attentive as well.

“Great beer and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

This was one of the nicest meals we had in Vancouver (even though it was yet another burger!). I recommend the Greek Chicken burger with a yummy house salad. They also have a great selection of local beers and fantastic service.

Considering it is in the heart of the tourist area it is a real gem.

“Good beer, fine food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

For a restaurant in Vancouver, and in the heart of Gastown, this was excellent value. Food was good, if not fancy. Portion size was fine - I was there at dinner-time and ordered one of the daily specials - but not large; perfectly adequate it must be said. Beer was very good and the staff were friendly. A simple, filling and relatively inexpensive bar meal served in a pleasant setting. Whatt more could one ask for?

“Good, inexpensive bar food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Like other travelers mentioned, find the steam clock, and you'll find the Black Frog. Enjoyed some good bar food there. Only drawn down is since it's relatively dark in there, difficult to read the menu. A server noticed us struggling, and immediately provided a mini flash light. Thank you! Food was good, but not so good I can say it was best ever, especially when we headed from Vancouver to Alaska, land of fresh seafood!

“Gastown Gastronomy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Find the steam clock, walk straight towards the water - and there it is! Good food, a warm welcome and amazing beers, what's not to like!
