The Iron Frog Tavern Ratings and Reviews
We had a family gathering dinner with seniors, adults and a child. The food was enjoyed by all. The conversation was a little challenging due to the noise, but it was as you would expect for a tavern. The potato tot dishes are amazing; try them! The other dishes are very generously sized. Food is fresh and delicious and service attentive.
We went for Sunday brunch/lunch. We were the first customers there at 11:30 a.m. The waitress informed us they were out of one menu item. After we ordered she came back and said they were out of another menu item which was something one of our party ordered. We also ordered Bloody Marys and discovered when we got the bill that they were $9 each. I think that is an outrageous price for a funny little neighborhood tavern. Our bill was over $100. We will not go back.
Great American pub food.. Mac and cheese was excellent and so was the meatloaf. Took a while for food to come out but we weren't in a rush. Mojitos very good. Trivia game offered as we were leaving and seemed very fun and lively. Would definitely come back.
I would have to classify the Iron Frog as an upscale burger joint although I didn't try the burgers because there were other interesting items that fell short. Pork Belly Sliders to me were merely roast pork on a bun. Pork Belly is not roast pork. The grilled cheese on sourdough with pork was overwhelmed by the pork and became a roast pork sandwich with a hint of cheese. I'm sure the burgers were great, they sounded great and next time I would stick with the basic fare.
Such a disappointment. My poor son ordered the eggplant special, when it arrived (10 minutes after everyone else at the table) the meal looked as if it sat under a hot lamp for 30 minutes. I wanted to send it back but he was so hungry he wouldn't let me. The waitress was never available and rushed us through our meal to the point of being Very rude. Half of us were still eating and she started collecting plates and placed dessert menus in front of everyone. This is a lovely restaurant, the service needs to improve or they will lose business. Our last visit was terrific, not sure what changed. Very disappointing.
We were looking for a casual evening out at a moderately priced restaurant. The Iron Frog seemed to fit the bill.
Prior to the band the recorded music was too loud to talk, each time we asked the speaker near our table was turned down
but the volume seemed to creep up none the less. Our food was mediocre: the salmon burger was mostly filler and undercooked,
the shepard's pie had good taste but very little lamb, and the salads had the smallest salmon fillets. It's a place we would go for a drink
but not for a meal.
We had never been to the Iron Frog before but went for dinner there on the Saturday night the day before St. Patrick's Day. Both my husband I agreed it was the best corned beef and cabbage we have ever had (and we are both Irish and in our sixties, so that is saying something). They had a band named Grant's Tomb that started playing at nine. Usually we don't like noisy bands, and had planned to exit when the music started, but these musicians were truly outstanding and very appealing. We end up staying for another three hours. The restaurant presents a lively scene with an energized and welcoming ambiance. We are so glad we discovered the Iron Frog and will definitely return, for both the terrific food and the friendly atmosphere.
Went on a Thursday night for happy hour and dinner in the bar. Nice pub atmosphere and there's a deck which looks great for warmer weather. During happy hour all drafts beers and certain wines are $4 and the apps were half price or less. There was a guitar player who was very good, but he was just a little too loud for the size of the pub. The food was really good. Our rice ball app came with 2 large crunchy risoto balls and a big cup of cheese fondue for dipping. Yummy. The chicken pot pie, lamb shepards pie and mac & cheese were all very tasty once you added some salt. Looks like the chef lets you do the seasoning. Menu looked very interesting and we'll definitely be going back.
We had a great experience for my husband's birthday. The service was excellent. When another couple came in saying that it was drafty they moved them immediately to warmer area and offered to move us too. I'm not one to complain in a restaurant so I felt bad but they were like 'no way, we want you to enjoy your meal'! The food was great especially the honey bbq wings! Those were the best wings I've ever had! We live 45 mins away but we'll definitely go back one day :)
The service people appeared to be in the weeds (and this is from someone who worked as a waiter while in college and dental school) but that was still no excuse! Management needs to have more servers available on the weekends. My main dish (the brats) were barely warm; i.e they were only partially cooked. Will not be returning here nor recommending to friends. There are lots of better places in the Farmington Valley
