Awesome food and great service. Do not pass up the broasted chicken. The portions are huge if you and hungry and it is delicious. My wife got the smothered chicken and that was great too.

Great food, fun atmosphere, exceptional service. Manager told us right away that they were very busy and that it may take longer for our food.

We had spent 10 hours driving along the Mississippi River and wanted something great to eat, and we found it here. The menu was huge! It was hard to narrow down what everyone wanted, but once we did every single person loved what they ordered. I had the chicken strip club sandwich and it was much larger than I was... More

It may look like a biker bar because there are always a few bikes parked outside. But there is a reason for that: great food and atmosphere. Typical burger and sandwich fare but above average quality. Service is prompt and friendly.

First and last time at the Golden Frog. Waitress was very unfriendly and only took our order and brought the food. Never asked if our food was ok or if we needed anything else. We definitely did not feel welcome.

When we let the owner know he said "yeah" walked away and came back with a beer for my Dad. I couldn't believe there wasn't an... More
