The food was great as always, and Bree did an awesome job explaining the specials and was very attentive to our needs. It was great to see Tommy's band, can't wait until next month!

Fantastic food, the vegan soup they made special was very much appreciated and delicious. We were looking forward to the Irish Folk music posted on their website, the alternative band was still nice just be aware their most updated info is on their Facebook page.

My husband had the pork chop special and said it was the “best pork chop he has ever had.” I had the seafood stew which was also superb. Our waitress was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Her wine recommendations were spot on. The icing on the cake was the jazz trio. They were excellent and the volume was perfect without making it impossible to carry on a conversation.
I can’t wait to try the upstairs deck!

The staff and the food was impeccable! I was a little chilly at our first table so they moved us upstairs near the fire which was perfect! We can’t wait to go back for brunch on Sunday!! ❤️

The food was incredible as always! The band wasn't too loud. Only downfall wasn't the restaurant's fault. The couple next to us kept leaning over and talking and with social distancing, and out for Valentine's, we were not interested in chatting. The staff were young and did not address. The could actually got into the booth with the people behind them. Hope they knew them! Other than the 'odd couple' it was fantastic!

We usually have a good experience but this time the service fizzled at the end. Our coffees were forgotten and when I called the waiter over as he was rushing by our table after we were half way done with our desserts asking to cancel them there was no apology and he said ok as he quickly moved along never coming back to our table. The hostess / manager ended up finishing up our table. We saw it was busy but he had no problems taking care of the two new tables he had. A simple acknowledgment he would get to us soon or apology for the coffees would have gone a long way but being ignored does not entice us to want to come back anytime too soon.

Its so nice to have dinner and live music! The food is delicious and creative, piping hot from the kitchen. Tables are nicely spaced and you feel completely comfortable having an indoor meal.

This was the first time we sat upstairs. I loved it. It was intimate. Our waiter was very busy but so personable and efficient. He did an awesome job with all the tables he had to serve. The food was wonderful as usual. It was an overall great experience.

All aspects were outstanding! Salmon was some of the best I've tasted. We're old and grumpy and don't like going out on the weekends when things are extra busy and crowded but this place is the exception!!

This our go-to date night restaurant. The food is unbelievable. We love the standard menu but often times go with the specials. On this particular evening I had beef Wellington. The portions are big and prices are reasonable for what you get. The ambiance in the restaurant is lovely, with soft lighting music on most nights. After dinner, take a stroll on the river. You cannot go wrong with an evening at The Frog and Turtle! (Great staff too!)

Wearing a mask is important. Being TOLD to use the ladies room immediately upon entering to wash my hands was insulting. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful and sweet. The food was amazing! Service was extremely slow. We ordered around 12 noon and were not served until 12:45 - and half the tables were empty. The noise level made it difficult to have a conversation

We were not aware of live music and the second floor was closed. Way too loud with the music and could not hear server or each other. My daughter has sensory issues and so it made her very anxious we had to have dinners packed to go. The food although very good was extremely salty. I have had better meals and experience at the restaurant. We had mac & cheese with kale and brussel sprouts, fried haddock with homedmade chips(very salty) and beef wellington. The apps were excellent calamari and roasted cauliflower fundue.

We haven’t been to the Frog since the remodel and decided to go on for a date night. The music was great! The service however was very slow and inattentive . It took forever to get our initial drinks and after we ordered it was a good 30minutes before our food came . The food was good although the portions for the price- not so much.

Food was excellent and the waitress was excellent. She noticed that one person did not want bacon on her salad and then returned to table to ask if she also did not want tasso ham in the mussels. That's really taking care of the customer.
