Polliwogs was able to accomadate our large two family party with ease on the outside patio. Our children were entertained with the provided outside cornhole. We ordered our drinks and two out of the four alcoholic beverages were not available. The menus were not updated...More

Nice craft beer selection with fresh homemade food. Tuesday nights are all you can eat crab legs. You can often find live music here. Graham the bartender is the best.

Love the atmosphere of Polliwogs - it has potential. But the service is downright horrible. I don't know who you have to know to actually have a waitress acknowledge you, but be prepared to leave without ever even giving a drink order. I've been to...More

We brought a colleague here because he's retiring. We've been here for two hours and out of our group of 30, there's still people who don't have their food. We had called ahead the day before and it seems as though they made no adjustments...More

If you are looking for a place for fun and to watch some sports, then you have found your place. The atmosphere is great and the service was outstanding. The food was just average.

It was a late afternoon lunch date with my husband. The place was practically empty. We were seated at a table to the left of the establishment next to a frenchdoor. It was obvious that smokers use the outside area to smoke as the smell...More
