Good as always, went for St.Patty day breakfast this time. Espresso martinis were nice, corned beef Benedict was also nice but beef was a little bland for my taste and home fries should always be grilled never fried..

Always enjoy our meal at F & T. The desserts are superb!
Would like to see a non-alcohol beer added to their drink menu. Thanks for the enjoyable evening.

Been here 3 times now. It is always fantastic. Service quality and value. May seem a bit expensive. But, I have paid more elsewhere and received less in return. Casual environment. They offer both pub food and custom made to order entrees.

We went to celebrate a birthday, the food and service was great but it was so loud it was hard to have a conversation. This wasn’t the restaurants fault, it was the trio sitting behind us, VERY loud voices. Other than that, it was awesome

My husband and I had a Wonderful time at The Frog and Turtle this week. We both ordered the same meal, fish and chips, with a mussels appetizer, and everything was delicious! The service was excellent, the ambiance was so cozy and warm, and the band (Dave Good & Jeff Willis) was so much fun! Great performance! We will definitely be back!

The food is fine. A bit over priced. Ordered a cole slaw that was overloaded with onions and radishes. My husband just sat it aside. The waitress said " you don't like your cole slaw". He explained why. She did not ask if there was anything else he would like instead. She did take if off the tab but we only found that out when the bill came.

A tremendous experience all around. The Fritter appetizer was amazing. Dinner was excellent, my wife had the salmon and loved it and I really liked my Shepard's Pie and Cheesecake with Peanut butter and berries compote was just delightful. Highly recommend a visit.

The food is excellent. I've been there many times and it is consistently good. The brunch on Sunday's is my favorite. It does tend to be loud, but your dining experience is worth it.

We have enjoyed Frog and Turtle in the past but on this visit we found the prices higher and the portions smaller which was quite disappointing. The atmosphere is informal and a bit loud. The food is good but not outstanding. The service is friendly but not stellar. If the value was there, it would be a good place to have a casual meal but we will be reluctant to go again at the their current prices - maybe if we stick to the pub menu and don't go hungry--it is close to our home.

Food is some of the best I have ever had. It's made from local ingredients, supporting local farms, made to order and the chef comes up with weekly specials that are out of this world. The restaurant can be small and intament or loud and entertaining depending on the night! Local bands play Friday and Wednesday if you're looking for some lively fun. It always takes time to make the food but we like just sitting and enjoying our company, its fresh and delicious every time we go.

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.

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.

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.

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.
