Three of us had lunch today and all were thrilled with our meals — All fried seafood. The owner/hostess was delightful and engaged in welcoming conversation. Maureen, our server was professional, friendly and very customer service oriented. There were two Pinot Gris on the wine menu. One patron wasn’t sure which she wanted so they brought a tasting of both so she could choose. The food was served quickly, was hot and delicious. There was a mix-up with one order. It was an oyster/shrimp basket combination. It came out as an oyster basket. As soon as the mistake was discovered out came fresh, hot shrimp to complete the order. Both were fabulous but the oysters were the plumpest, juiciest we’ve had. Excellent. Indoor and outdoor dining available. Restaurant situated on a lovely marsh/wetland. Give the Foolish Frog a try. You won’t be disappointed.

We come to Fripp every year and ALWAYS make sure to have lunch at Foolish Frog. Amazing food, great service and this year we tried the Fried Okra appetizer. Holy cow!! Could have eaten that as my meal!!

Good seafood, friendly service and a waterfront view. Frog legs and salmon were cooked perfectly and had great flavor. The filet tasted like the grill and list the wonderful steak flavor (my husband likes seasoning but it was a bit too much). Prices are good. Worth stopping in if you are on St Helena Island or nearby Hunting Island.

Nice visit after a long hiatus due to not very good meals. Surprised at the great turnaround. Was very good this time. Nice seating outdoors. Service was very good.

Staff was friendly. Food was average, but DEFINITELY not worth what they charge. We waited at least 40 minutes for our food once we ordered, and there was only one other group seated inside (a table of 4). There were a few tables with customers outside, but certainly nothing to justify a 40 minute wait for simple orders. They were so not busy that there was no wait time to be seated. I ordered an entree that included 2 sides. I asked the waitress if I could have a side salad as one of my sides, and she said yes. She never mentioned there would be an extra charge, yet I was charged an extra $2 for a measly plate of JUST LETTUCE and dressing. And when I asked her about it on the receipt, she took the receipt and went to ask someone about it and then just came back and said it automatically adds it? So delete it. Comp it. Make up for the fact that you were slow in taking the order once we were ready and that the wait time for the food was absolutely inexcusable. My kids were ready to go to sleep at the table by the time we got our food. Very disappointed in our one night out while visiting the area for USMC graduation.
