The Frogmore Ratings and Reviews
The food was terrible.
The servers were professional and attentive but nothing could make up for food that was barely edible. There are so many positive reviews for this place that there must have been a serious problem in the kitchen (Saturday lunch) - this was by far the worst food I've ever been served in a restaurant.
I had the "smoked turkey hash" which turned out to be a few shreds of stringy, tasteless, dried-out turkey breast in a weird little pancake of under-cooked, flavorless and nearly raw "root vegetables."
My nephew had bacon and eggs. How can a professional kitchen screw up bacon and eggs? But they did. Every piece of bacon was partly burnt black, and the scrambled eggs a pile of dry, rubbery granules of over-cooked egg. The toast on both was cold. Complete breakfast fail.
I don’t know about the everyday dining at this restaurant, but the Thanksgiving meal was very disappointing for what was advertised. $125 for 2 people came with a little white meat and a turkey drumstick, 4 sides that were just above room temp, and a small table that barely held all the dishes. I suppose it was a much better value for larger parties, but I really felt ripped off.
I've been here a few times now and the service has always been slow. The staff is very nice and usual apologizes but the restaurant should get a new cook. Also the food is mediocre. The combinations are good but execution is meh. The apps are better than the main courses. I found the food very salty
Excellent service and good cocktails. Southern fare is good, although they experiment with a lot of things. This can be fantastic, or maybe not so fantastic. Menu changes regularly, so there's always something new to try. Although they do keep the popular choices. My fave - fried green tomatoes.
Great low-country food in a relaxed atmosphere. Was able to have my two children (under 3 and 7-month-old) sat and fed early because the mac and cheese (amazing) was delivered first to stave off any impatient children. The rest of the food was delicious and the kids even tried them. Really good beer menu that we were able to test before we had to split. The bill and doggie bags were given to us before the children turned to pumpkins. A great experience and nice to know we can go back so easily.
Great staff. We were greeted with such a nice welcome. Our server was amazing and really brought a fun vibe to our table. It was a friends birthday and our server was amazing with keeping a fun atmosphere. Food was amazing, there wasn't anything we didn't like.
We were expecting more authentic Southern cooking, but that said, we liked most of the dishes that we ordered. The corn soup was outstanding as was the shrimp and grits. One of the folks in our party thought there was too much salt in all of the appitizers and entries.
Everyone loved their drinks - especially the one made with mescal. We all thought that the desserts were just so so.
On a Saturday night this restaurant is the perfect place to go when you want a comfortable, fun, homestyle meal without fighting crowds and bumping elbows with your neighboring diners. I love how spacious the restaurant is and the warmth and friendliness of our server (Samantha) and the other staff. We didn't feel rushed and the food was yummy comfort food. If you're on a diet, this probably isn't the place to go, but we loved the roasted beet salad, the okra, the fried chicken. We are still talking about the dessert: an ice cream sundae with bourbon salted caramel. So delish! The crowd was a good mix of young and older, families and singles. All in all, the meal felt like coming home (even though I'm not from the South). It should be more crowded than it is, but that means we could get a reservation at the last minute, so take advantage while it lasts! We can't wait to go back.
Not only are the menu offerings a creative mix of healthful and comforting dishes from bayou region of Louisiana made with fresh, local ingredients, but the owners and waitstaff are helpful and friendly. Refreshing line-up of neatly crafted seasonal cocktails. Great patio out front on Centre St, well-behaved dogs welcome! Wonderful neighborhood spot that's perfect for Sunday brunch.
Lovely service and but the food was only okay. Everything was under seasoned (except the cornbread- the cornbread was great!). I have been a few times in the past and it seems like there's always one dish that doesn't quite hit the mark. This time it was my Braised Duck Hash- bland and presentation was boring. My mother and sister enjoyed their eggs benedict and fried chicken sandwich, and the substitutions/changes they requested were honored and came out as hoped. Everyone was adding salt and pepper to their dishes though, and that is not the norm for me. I probably won't return.
As a southerner living in New England, I was thrilled to find someplace that offers some of my favorite comfort foods. When they put a bucket of boiled peanuts on the table my eyes lit up with excitement. However, they had clearly been reheated and were just ok. The fried green tomatoes were as good as my grandmothers! The fried chicken and collards were also great! The ribs however were dry and small for the price. While not the best meal I've had, I would give it another try.
Really special and unusual restaurant in The heart of Jamaica Plain. Wonderful decor of lemon and chartreuse pineapple wallpaper. Instead of bread basket guests are given a basket of boiled peanuts. Kids love the MAC n'cheese, and adults will find The red snapper with clams superb....and you won't find more delicious crispy fried chicken anywhere in Greater Boston than Frogmore. It's a WOW!
Unless you're already familiar with Low Country cuisine, The Frogmore will expand and maybe explode your concept of Southern food. It presents the distinctive cooking of the South Carolina-Georgia coast both in its traditional form and as imaginatively varied by a talented chef for whom it is a passion. The atmosphere is relaxed and the welcome warm; in good weather there are outdoor tables, sidewalk café style. I visit it whenever an opportunity presents itself. (Full disclosure: I know the owners, but to praise The Frogmore to the skies requires no thumb on the scale.)
Came for brunch and really wanted to shrimp and grits. It was very tasty, but served as two full head-on shrimp which I'd never seen done before, so if you're the squeamish type just be aware. Really wished it were bigger... Just two shrimp was not enough. The service was friendly but it took about 35-40 minutes for the food to come out, so don't come if you're in a hurry.
I have a shellfish allergy--many of their options had shellfish as a key ingredient. When I asked for an edit, there wasn't any culinary thought to how to make the dish just as tasty with the edit. While not a deal breaker, something for the restaurant to think through.
This was so disappointing from the moment we walked in until the moment we left almost 2 hours later- just for a Sunday Brunch. Arrived on time for our reservation and there was no one at the host desk for around 10 minutes. A staff member showed up - no smile, no welcome and just showed us to our table.
After around 15 minutes someone poured water for us. The waitress was bordering on surly and when pouring the coffee splashed it all over the table and just walked away. When refilling water glasses again splashed over the table.
The menu for brunch is limited and some of us ordered just bacon, eggs and toast ($11). One person ordered the chicken sandwich and one the duck hash. No special requests. It took exactly 65 minutes from placing the order to receiving it! They may have been short staffed but no one apologized for anything. Many tables were empty but not bussed. Such a blah meal and such terrible unpleasant service. Never will go back.
Having eaten there for lunch several times, the food was as expected. Coming from the South, I do enjoy the menu choices, particularly the fried chicken. Wish they had a more extensive wine list as the wine choices only include the house wine and sangria. My primary issue this past Saturday evening was the surliness/lack of polite friendliness from our server. As a frequent restaurant goer, I found his "attitude" unacceptable. having said this, I would nonetheless eat at Frogmore again.
