We went with a coupon for a date night. Atmosphere is dark and lovely for a date. Food was very high quality and well prepared. Really great food but pricy.

The calamari and scallop appetizers were delicious! Unfortunately I was not as impressed with my entree-my fish was really overcooked and lacked flavor. We also tried a couple other appetizers, and it seems like they have great ideas but somehow just slightly miss the mark.

A recent menu change meant the loss of our go-to entrees, but the new offerings are excellent. There's nearly always a table for two, although reservations on weekends are wise.

We were a family of three (all adults) on a Monday night and had a lovely meal in this easy and pleasant establishment. We found the range of prices reasonable and liked the fact that you could choose either from the pub or dining menu. As a local butcher is nearby, two of us opted for the pork which was... More

This was the third time we attempted this "well meaning" restaurant, striving to be a somewhat elite dining experience... it just fails every time. Not that it is without merit. It's relatively comfortable, it can be a "nice dinner out" however... the food is consistently "so-so", lack luster, relatively average... but the price tag is always that of a pricey,... More

Fantastic place for burgers in a attractive dining room or private tables in the bar. The rest of the menu is solid.

As a party of six we were seated in one of the open ended booth in the restaurant which was ideal for our group. The atmosphere was warm and friendly. The food was excellent and the service satisfactory. The waitress could have made more of an effort to explain the menu and the dishes when they arrived. Having said that... More

I came in on a week night, during a solo business trip. I was promptly greeted. Dining room was half empty however I was steered to a corner table next another single guy. I was told the empty booths were 'reserved'. Strange. Once I received a menu I found most of the entrees were pub food, burgers and sandwiches. There... More

We were overwhelmed by the crowds in Burlington, so we hightailed it out of there looking for a different option. The Breaded Frog fit the bill ... probably not winning any awards for ground-breaking cuisine but you do get a good well-prepared meal along with good service an a little ambiance.
