Waited forever for a waiter. Had to actually ask for somebody to come and take our drink order.
There was a $5 Covid charge on the bill with no explanation!
Food was very mediocre, especially for the prices...

Froggy's is one of the best restaurants I've ever found - superb food always perfectly prepared, charming décor, excellent wines, and a staff that is both extremely competent and sincerely cheerful. Can't go wrong! Also it is near the Green Bay Trail, so a nice stop on a bike ride.

In addition to good food, the setting (covered but open to the outdoors with open French doors) was comfortable and appropriate for this covid-19 era.

We really enjoyed the outdoor dining experience. We've been to Froggy's several times but this was our best and most enjoyable visit. I would recommend they always provide this outdoor setup in appropriate weather, even after the threat of coronovirus has dissipated. They really did a good job of creating a nice romantic area on a sidewalk by adding plants, flowers and lights. We noticed more young people dining their, which we haven't seen before.

As always, the food was fresh, well prepared and perfectly seasoned. Our server was attentive and friendly.

A wonderful restaurant to dine at outdoors during the Covid-19 pandemic. Food is good and served in substantial portions. Service was very slow, but inasmuch as my dining partner and I wanted to spend an extended evening together, the slow service was not an issue. I have now been to Froggy's twice this summer and would not hesitate to go again.

I have ordered escargot at dozens of restaurants around the country. Froggy’s was THE BEST!! My entree, Chicken “Falcon Nicoise”, was so delicious that I almost licked the plate clean. We were seated in a garden atmosphere area, open to the street. An extraordinary dining experience!

Excellent food, wine and service on a hot Sat. afternoon on Froggy's shaded, colorful patio seating! Quiet French music played in the background to enable a quiet conversation. We had a delightful experience! Even had dessert that we couldn't pass up after a full meal.

My wife's and my guest couple had the barramundi and thought it was wonderful. My wife liked her main as well. I had the pasta jardiniere, and the noodles were dried out as if they had been sitting around waiting for the other courses to become ready to serve.

The service was quite good.
