They offer a flight of mimosas. What more should one say?

Food was ok, not real hot. Waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. Found the restaurant to be very clean. A lot of attention to detail was noticed.

The food was absolutely amazing! Everything with our reservations and gift certificate we had went very smooth. It was our first time and it did not disappoint. The ambiance wasn't what I was expecting, it was very loud and hard to talk to my husband while dining. I would still go back as everything else was out of this world.

Wow! Haven't been into F&T since they remodeled - it's beautiful! Sat at the bar downstairs on on a Friday night with live music. Server (bartender) had a great personality and made awesome recommendations. The sheperd's pie crape was so, so good. Will be back soon.

From the time we arrived the staff was attentive and friendly. We started with the calamari which was perfectly cooked served with a lime sauce. My swordfish I had cooked blackened with a Cajun rub with Brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. The best was left for the dessert with a pumpkin spice eclair and espresso martini!! Kudos to the chefs, servers, and bartender.

We found The Frog and Turtle on-line and the menu sounded good. The donuts were a little disappointing, as ours had a little too much grease cooked into the finish product, but the concept was good! The breakfast MORE than made up for any shortcoming with the donuts we ordered prior to our meal. The ingredients were loaded with flavor and the portions were more than adequate, in fact you could describe them as a meal and a half! Our waitstaff was great, will definitely go back again.

We hadn't been in since pre-COVID. The extra space coupled with my husbands hearing deficits made the environment very challenging. The food was delicious but eating in relative conversation silence was disappointing. We'll likely be back but we likely need to request a quieter corner, if one exists.

We had a delicious dinner at the F&T. We sat upstairs in the new area, which was quite loud but if you want a more intimate, quiet setting - I think downstairs would be that way. I had the special lamb dish which was delicious! I have to go back and have the chicken crepe or a burger from the looks of other diners’ meals! We had the onion rings as an app. SO GOOD! The Phoenix margarita was delish. My friend had the mussels and a salad. They were both good. The chef/owner asked a couple of times if all was good and even allowed us to sit there a half hour past closing chatting (we had not seen each other in a year!). He did finally have to give us the hint it was time to go😂. I would definitely return and wish I had visited during summer as they have a pretty outside area. Our waitress was excellent as well. Great experience.

We have been there before and it was excellent food. This time neither one of us could eat our meal. My husband said the haddock didn’t taste right and I had the steak which was so salty I couldn’t eat it. The waitress was great, wondering why we didn’t eat and we do not like to complain, so we told her we weren’t hungry and so I am only letting you know this because you sent me asking for a rating. Please know we wouldn’t put this out there to anyone because we know sometimes things can just not be perfect. It happens. We will be back.
Excellent atmosphere, clean, great wine and again, great service.
Thank you, Alan and Janine

The pretzel appetizer, while good, was small in content for 4 people (we asked) and slightly overpriced. Drinks were slow to be refilled but overall the food was delicious.

We sat outside on street level for Sunday Brunch. The food was excellent, but as stated on the menu it does take longer than you may expect as all dishes are prepared fresh when ordered. Still it did seem a long time as it was busy that day. From the time we sat to when we left, it was about 1 hour 45 minutes. The people at the table next to us had their dog with them who was very friendly and the table was crowded with an extra chair being added. It took away from the ambiance of our table for 2. Overall, I highly recommend this place and they are doing their best to accommodate as many diners as possible inside and out. Food is always amazing here.
