I quite liked my Friday special of fish and chips and was pleased with the variety of craft beers but what made this stand out was the response to our surprise visit of about forty people from our small conference on what was probably a slow time of day and season. One gal was tending bar and waiting tables and... More

We went to Froggies Cantina today for the first time. Delicious food at a reasonable price.The Cubano sandwich and Fried Flounder sandwich were delicious. The daily specials look good and reasonable prices.

We sat on the deck with our dog, and the server (Kaycee) immediately poured water in a provided dog bowl, and gave him some love and attention. She said they could brown some ground beef for him for $3, and that was likely the highlight of his whole trip! Highly recommend the Frog Nachos! If you text FROG to 91944,... More

My husband & I spent all day on the beach, and stopped for a bite! Seafood on our mind, but..... oh my! We tried the special, a couple tacos, and ended up ordering a few more, some black beans and rice, and a few beers! Why not, right?? The taco shells tasted almost like a pastry shell, soooo good!

If you find yourself hungry and on Shore Drive looking for a good breakfast, give Froggie Cantina a try. My wife and I ate there for the first time Sunday morning on a friend's recommendation. We were both very happy with the decision to give it a try. I had the Shrimp & Grits; my wife had a breakfast sandwich.... More

I'm giving them 5 stars just based on their bar tender. Super friendly, just started a short time ago. I am from out of town and this place has a grade A bar tender!

Froggies is right off Shore Drive with easy access. Local favorite. Classic Bar food, moderate in price and presentation. Staff are very friendly. They frequently have local entertainment early on Sat and Sun and throughout the summer high season. Watch your step as there are many areas where the level of the floor changes with steps up or down so... More

Good day thanks for coming in. I am confused by your post. In five years this past Thursday was the only day we opened late due to our cook having a vehicle accident on the way in. We opened at 11:45. We don't serve tacos on Thursday I even spoke to my chef who came in and he did not... More
