We went for lunch and had a very good meal. The Fried calamari with sweet chili sauce was delicious. I had porcini crusted scallops with risotto and it was very rich and decadent. My husband had Cajun crab and sausage. Great meal in a nice setting. Very quiet even inside of a casino. It’s not cheap but you usually get what you pay for. The service was great. Efficient and unobtrusive.
We will be back!

1st issue: butter for the bread was not softened but right out of the refrigerator so we could not spread it on the bread.
2nd issue: ordered a drink requiring the use if their blender to be informed the blender was broken.
3rd issue: ordered french dip to only be told they were out of french dip.
4th issue: we order bacon wrapped scallops which the scallops were rubbery and hard to cut through & the bacon was burnt and not wrapped around the scallops.

I settled for a sunrise burger which was delicious and made perfect.

My wife ordered the flounder stuffed with king crab and it was ok but not great.

The best thing was the mac & cheese w/king crab. It was banging.

We also ordered for dessert "The Meankng of Life" cake which was 7 layers. It is huge but the size is more overwhelming then the taste of the cake. It was not moist but dry and very bland.

For the $134 lunch we were expecting to be blown away. We went to Guy Fieri's in AC prior and Hugo's is not on Fieri's level.

I would have complained but we was given a gift card so it cost us nothing but our time which we could never get back.

The server Mike was outstanding and was the best part of the whole experience.

That was our experience.

My fiancé and I went out to Hugo's to celebrate Valentine's Day the day after the holiday, on Saturday. We had reservations for 6PM and were seated right away. Everyone was nice, polite, and very welcoming. We were checked on multiple times throughout our meal by different people. Not once did we have to request assistance because someone was always around and refilling our drinks. The food was amazing. We had steak and Porcini Crusted Scallops. We will definitely be returning back to Hugo's since we had such a fantastic experience.

Well from the outside looking in it appeared to be a nice place but once we was seated that’s when I noticed ppl playing music off their phones, restaurant policy calls for business casual wear I seen ppl wearing sweatsuits and hoodies, my server offered champagne I asked for Moët he said they didn’t have any, the Lobster Bisque soup tasted like it was only made with heavy cream and sugar and there wasn’t a taste of lobster in it. The restaurant claims to be the “Best Steak House” in Philadelphia but the steak had absolutely no taste or flavor whatsoever! Overall me and my wife had a horrible experience there on top of that it was Valentines Day!

Dined here for Valentines day dinner. We were Promptly greeted on arrival by a very friendly host. All wait staff and bussers were very attentive and professional. Overall I would have given this place a 5 star, except the food left much to be desired. Mainly the steak; for being a “Chop House” it lacked flavor and seasoning. Cooked to The correct temperature, but I had to ask for A1 sauce I in order to eat it! The seafood was prepared well. The drinks were strong and tasty. I wouldn’t return here for a steak though....

Friendly staff. Unfortunately one person in the group received a rare steak and he had ordered a medium. My steak was great. Manager is very nice. We had a minor with us and he was treated with respect. I do miss the steamed clams though.

My baked potato was cold when brought out. They had to reheat it. The dessert was a chocolate mouse pie. It was so big and expensive. Thought I was getting a slice. This was basically a whole pie and the cost was outrageous

Had an excellent meal..the lobster bisque was truly delicious, and I am from New England and have tasted many versions. My small fillet was cooked perfectly and tender although not 100% flavorful. The crabcakes was very good. I think that the sides are a bit expensive on top of the already pricey entrees. Overall very good

The prices are mid range however the service we received wad definitely not what we expected. It took 15 mins after being seated for someone that didn't even introduce himself to ask us about drinks. When he was asking it was like he was being rushed and we needed to hurry up to give him an answer. We had to send 1 plate back 2x and then the manager worked with us however by that time I was disgusted with the restaurant. We dine at many high end & mid- range restaurants in PA, NJ and Del. so we know what to expect from service in a restaurant truly this one we will not return. Sorry to give such a bad review and I even understand it was New Years Eve however the place was not overcrowded and people weren't waiting to get in especially since they requested reservations for the evening. Others were given party favors and my husband had to go get ours the server when we asked have an excuse not sure if we have them but never even looked. SMH

I was disappointed with the confusion of whether dinner was included with the Brian McKnight tickets. I felt marketing did a bate and switch after the ticket purchase. Having the name of the artist for the concert on the menu ruined my surprise to my significant other. The meal was good however, the bill at the end with all the confusion ruined my mood for the evening.

This was my first dining event at Hugo's Frog Bar however, I very much look forward to returning. The staff went over the top the entire evening. They checked in with us frequently to determine if we needed anything, provided recommendations on food, articulated greatly on each of the questions we asked about different meals, provided recommendations, solicited feedback on food, if needed beverage refills, etc. They all were so friendly, happy and upbeat the entire evening. The manager of the establishment visited our group a couple times to do the same. The manager even surprised my group with a complimentary dessert !! We were so surprised and the dessert was DELISH !! We thanked them extensively and ensured the manager, "we will be back" !!

We had the pleasure of enjoying the Chef’s Tasting Menu. We didn’t know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised - it was amazing. The flavors, the wine pairings and especially the service. The service blew us away. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel special. I think the only thing that could have made it better was smaller portion sizes, so we could enjoy each course more fully. We highly recommend Hugo Frog’s to anyone who wants an exceptional dining experience.
