Service was slow. food was unappetizing. Filet over cooked. Pretzel Board sparse and unappetizing. Two small triangles of boiled ham, soupy cheese sauce, pungent honey mustard sauce. Instead of piece of cheese we got shredded Parmesan. Food was not good, presentation even worse.

So fun to be able to sit outside on the dining deck on a beautiful early summer evening. The outdoor second floor deck overlooks the falls and a nice easy breeze keeps the sun heat at bay.

Food is delicious with good mix of flavors that does not go overboard. Cocktails are seasonal and tasty. Only criticism was on the service. They may have been overwhelmed with the amount of folks coming in and returning from a long absence after Covid. Attention to the small things like silverware, extra napkins to clean up the food that may drip through the porous table, and delivery of drinks prior to meal would give this a full five star review. Since we were in no big rush, we were okay with waiting.

Certainly recommended Frog and Turtle, especially in the summer and most certainly worth the extra five +/- mile drive off the Portland Peninsula to avoid the tourists and crowds!

The drinks were great but all of the food left a lot to be desired. I got crispy duck tacos and there was at most 2 oz of meat on them. They sat on a 1/4 cup of rice and some beans sprinkled on top. Really disappointing for the first dinner out after quarantine.

This has been a favorite of ours for a long time and our recent visit didn’t disappoint. The new upstairs space w terrace overlooking river is great addition. We go for the music, food, wine list & overall ambiance

We got to eat on the rooftop deck on a beautiful evening. We had a lovely view of Saccarappa falls. The waiter was amazing, the bartender was amazing, the food was amazing. What a treat, after a year of covid to be out and about with friends again. We picked the perfect place and night to reconnect with old friends. Thank you!

We LOVE our meals every time we go! It's louder, which we don't mind, and the decor is nothing fancy, which is relaxing. It does take a while to get your food because they make it as it's ordered, so we always order apps and cocktails while we wait. It's not a cheap date spot, but it's always dependable, relaxing and fun. And the portions are larger than normal. The shepherd's pie crepe is THE BEST.

We were seated in a bar stool seat as opposed to a table. We ordered our meal and after one hour our waiter told us our meals were delivered to another table. He told us the chef would have our meals ready in no time. However, another 21 minutes went by, making our total waiting time for a simple breakfast, 1 hour and 21 minutes. We that point we walked out! We felt like we were neglected. The service was terrible. We will never go there again.

Simply terrible experience. Our server had too many tables, the food was mediocre, and it was very loud inside. I can understand that our server was overworked, but he never offered water, or another drink when he was at our table- he definitely avoided us. I had to wave him down just to get a soda for my boyfriend. My cocktail glass was cleared and was never offered another. Steaks were overcooked, and mashed potatoes were crusted over from sitting too long. By the time we finished our entrees we had been there for over two hours. We always get dessert, but we really didn't want to be detained for another thirty minutes or more. Overall, very disappointing.

The food and service were both excellent! We were seated upstairs, the only thing I would comment on is that it did get pretty loud at one point, which made it slightly difficult to have a conversation with the person across the table. Other than that I would highly recommend The Frog and Turtle and plan to go back in the future.

Went with a group of girlfriends for brunch. Was unaware we had a time frame for dining. On our last order of drinks we were asked, “how fast can you drink those” as our table had apparently been booked for another seating. Staff was concerned about space when we asked to have a high chair added to the table. (Plenty of room was available.) Food and drinks were delicious, but when we were trying to box up some food to go we were rushed by the waiter to clear the plates, resulting in not all the food we had purchased being able to be packed up to go. Our waiter for the most part was very friendly and accommodating, but the fact that we were rushed out seemed to put a damper on the day. I understand with covid restrictions that restaurants can only accommodate certain amounts of people, but there was plenty of room upstairs and downstairs to seat other guest.

The first problem was Luke warm coffee. Next was the salmon omelette had cold fish inside and it made the whole omelette cool at best. Never order that again. The restaurant was super. Peace
