“Fun local food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We had dinner here after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. We had a fun meal and were surprized with banana treats with our ice cream. The monkey must have put them there.

I just checked their Facebook page and they announced on 15 May that they have closed. It is a sad loss for any community to lose a local business, even more so when it is one that is as committed to local suppliers as The Frog and The Monkey was.

“Amazingingly Flavorful and Local!!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

One of our favorite local restaurants! The food is always amazingingly flavorful and fresh. The meat is all locally grown and Organic. The selections are unique and selections blend well. I suggest the bok choy for a side, but my wife always orders the spicey mac & cheese! It's Hot!

“Much more (better!) than we expected”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Based on a very quick read of these reviews we were expecting a very small, family friendly casual sandwich shop. This is a bit larger, and much cozier and nicer than that (and a little pricier, but worth it). We had a variety of menu items (all delicious) and our server was terrific. We were ignored for a lengthy amount of time when we walked in (a young man was at the desk doing ??? and didn't acknowledge us for a good 5 minutes which was weird since it was not crowded at all); but I'm glad we stayed because we really had a lovely meal. It's tucked away on a side street and a little hard to find, so get directions before you go.

“It may be small however it has tons of spirit and service”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

My wife and I were in Banner Elk reciently and decided to visit the Frog and Monkey again. Each time we visit we find something else exciting for our palates. This time we tried the watermelon soup. It was out of this world. Go by, see John and his awesome little eatery.
