The Frog and Turtle
Great little spot, just give yourself a little extra time for parking :)
This is our favorite go-to spot for Sunday brunch. Their made to order donuts are to die for. This is not a quiet fast food place. Relax and enjoy the food. The nights is music is also great fun. Highly recommend for a night out or family gatherings.
The food is always good. I enjoy the atmosphere and the music. The place is always hopping on weekends and some evenings during the week. The staff are friendly - the owner is awesome!
Excellent brunch spot! Fair warning - the donuts are delicious but you won't be able to eat your main dish if you order them. Plan to share with the whole table so you can also enjoy the rest of your order comfortably.
As always, an amazing experience. Top-notch staff & food in a warm, comfortable atmosphere.
Great atmosphere, to much food! Band was outstanding! Didn’t want for anything, staff was right there, nothing seemed to sit, was brought to you when it was up! Had a GREAT TIME ! Thanks again 🤗
One of the best in the greater Portland area! Good food and the live music by Ciera Mackenzie was great!
Reunion dinner for our 3 twenty something kids, my wife and me. Nice place for a get together, but gets very noisy at times. Food was delicious and filling for us carnivores, alas my vegan son only got one choice - customized flatbread - but he said it was delicious. Price was reasonable for the food fest (plenty of leftovers) and beverages we consumed. Server was pleasant and efficient, although he did not let us know if there were other vegan choices when he went into the kitchen. The chef came out and greeted us during our dessert which was a really nice touch.
Wonderful as usual. We tried the poutine and pork belly with brussel sprouts. Both were fabulous! Love the live music on Friday nights.
Our second visit. Once again, very impressed.
Skillful chefs and Great servers!
Always love going to The Frog and Turtle. Food is fresh and delicious, it’s a place that is close to home and good for food with family or friends. Breakfast is amazing, make a reservation, you will not regret it!
Our brunch was expertly prepared with quality and flavorful ingredients. A great meal.
Service and food are usually great. However at our last brunch outing, we waited an hour for our meals. Our waitress didn’t check in to explain the delay, which increased our frustration as tables around us, who arrived up to 20 minutes after us, were served while we waited. We are hoping this was a one time bad day and we will give it another try in the future.
Love it!! All good
This was our third time at the Frog and Turtle and it was another fantastic experience. The servers are always super friendly and attentive. I actually would say the service at the Frog and Turtle is among the best I have ever experienced. The food is always amazing as well! The menu is wide ranging and unique. We tried the flatbread pizzas this time and the ingredients were clearly fresh and the sauce was delicious! The owner came to our table during our meal and I was glad to have had the opportunity to thank him for such a positive and beautiful restaurant experience. Highly recommended!!!
Always excellent food.........the waitress was a bit distracted......tepid coffee with an awesome dessert
Amazing experience, delicious food made with fresh ingredients! Large portions and great drinks!
Wonderful food, service & friends:). Will definitely be going back!
Bryce our waiter was outstanding!
The steak was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the live music playing
We have been here several times now on Wednesday nights and have always enjoyed the service, food and live music. This evening the music was exceptionally loud to the point where a table of 4 could hardly hear each other talk. Service (or the kitchen) was slow even thought there were empty tables. Our server seemed to be more interested in clearing empty tables than attending to the customers. The food was very good all around once we got it. I'll be back again, hopefully this was just an "off" night.
You can't go wrong there: the food and drinks are always top-notch. Highly recommend
Both hubby and I have worked in the restaurant business. We travel all over and love foodie towns. This food is delicious. We will be back. Salad portion was a little small (salmon), but over an hour to get it, I wasn't quite as hungry . Not complaining TOO much, bc the margaritas were the BEST I have found since moving up here from Greenville SC. The mushroom app was the best I've ever had, too. The big disappointment was an hour from ticket order til food on table. It was a Saturday night 7pm... I WILL recommend to guests of our B&B, The Perkins House, Cornish ME.
The menu and the food did not disappoint. With a variety of options and combinations there’s something for everyone to choose. One guest in our party of eight ordered blindly and asked for the chef to create one of his best dishes. We were all surprised but the gentleman who ordered even more so. The meal was fantastic all around. Our server was busy and may have been able to circle around more for water or drinks but overall was pleasant and generally attentive. This place is great for relaxing and purposely spending time chatting with your fellow diners. Do not go here in a rush because the food is meant to savored as well as enjoying the time you take with those dining with you. Chef James does not disappoint! We will be back.
I went for the live music. The setting was great. Good vibe, friendly folks. Fun music by Juke Joint Devils, Nitro beer and Cajun fish tacos. What could be better?
Lovely breakfast menu with plenty of options! Our waitstaff was friendly, attentive and efficient—great combination. I appreciate being able to make a reservation for a small group. Many restaurants won’t do that! Be sure to order the donuts!!
We were not impressed. They were out of all Crepes (how can you’ve out-it’s batter). The flat bread pizza was thick and doughy with copious amounts of sauce and thick chunks of meat. Very heavy/hearty.
First time visit and was pleasantly surprised by the Great food and local feel.
The food here is amazing. Everything is made to order and the staff are great. Overall my wife and I love it.
Great for burgers and beer. Also usually some very good entrees fro dinner.
Seems as though they were a little short staffed, our waitress had to be hailed to take our order after waiting 20 minutes. Worth the wait, though- the donuts were crisp and flavorful and each of us had an excellent breakfast meal. Highly recommend even when service is slower than usual!
Frog and Turtle is awesome! The eggs benny are out of this world.
Easily the best restaurant in the Portland area. Chef James is a true master and the staff are simply amazing; whether a first time visit or a regular, you feel at home.
Unfortunately to no fault of the restaurant we were adjacent to three tables of drinking women alternating between shrieking and cackling at the tops of their lungs. We couldn't hear the waitress or each other. Of course that's to be expected near the bar or bandstand but we were in the corner of the dining room. More a suggestion to patrons, don't be louder than necessary and ask the loudest in your party to maybe tone it down a bit.
The food was excellent but the overall experience was negative so we probably won't go back. Unfortunate because otherwise we like the place.
Fantastic visit, as always. Gigantic portions, ridiculously friendly and attentive service - they continue to impress, year after year.
The Juke Joint Devil Band was awesome, as was Jamie the bartender and patrons in general.
This is a great place to hear live music every Wednesday and Friday! The food is outstanding!
Waitress was amazing...food satisfying..
I have never had a bad experience at the Frog and Turtle. Great music, great food and atmosphere and awesome waitstaff! Plus an owner who cares very much about his patrons and about the community at large. Love the Frog and Turtle!!
The Frog & Turtle once again has impressed my taste buds! And the chef even prepared a ceviche that I requested (I had seen from another customer’s posting.)
The skins w/pulled pork was incredible as well as the lobster dinner, desserts are killer!
Looking forward to the next time:)
This is our second time to the Frog and the Turtle and we were as equally pleased this time as last. The service(Lucia) was wonderful and attentive, the food was made to order and the overall experience was worth the drive and the price. The Frog and Turtle is a gem in Westbrook and I would recommend to others. If you like sheperd's pie--get the sheperds pie crepe--it s outstanding. The special pork loin chop was very well prepared and drinks and the salad( dark greens) was excellent and we shared it. Overall a wonderful evening.
