Don't book a party there! – Booked a party for about 35 people in their private back room. When we arrived, about 30 minutes before the guests, stepped on broken glass all over the floor. Then noticed paper, used straws, the place was filthy! I had booked this room weeks in advance so it should have been cleaned and ready for a party! Part way through the party, noticed 3 strangers sitting at the bar. The bartender knew they weren't a part of our party, not sure I didn't pay for their alcohol. At the end of the event, some guys literally almost broke down the back door to get in. Three girls strolled in to let them in. We paid $200 just for the room use, a joke.
It was dirty, management didn't seem to care about my concerns and follow up communication confirms their lack of concern. The cost of alcohol was over the top. Find another place for your party.
Happy hour – Arrived for happy hour...shocked at $4.50 draft of Budweiser American Ale...of course it was happy hour so I got $1.00 off...$3.50! Wow...still too high. Come on Frog Bear!
Worst Food in Columbus – I work in the Arena District and stop in Frog Bear regularly. Last week I ordered a grilled chicken salad with the house dressing for lunch. I could not believe how horrible this salad was, I would eat feces before I ordered this again. The house dressing is unbelievably bad, I could mix condiments in my fridge that would taste better. I don't know who the head chef is over there but they better take a second look at what they are doing and pray that the NHL doesn't go on another strike.
great place!!! – Frog Bear is awesome...great live entertainment (DJ and live bands), good drinks and amazing staff. Probably the most attractive bar staff I have ever seen! I have only been there a few times so far since I just moved to Ohio, but I'll be returning frequently, especially since they have an awesome patio.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Known as having the longest happy hour, the bar offers daily lunch specials, a large selection of cocktails and beer.
I think the Frog Bear has the best DJ – DJ Breakdown is Awsome! He always plays the best music! The dance floor was jumpin'! Great place to go with your girls and dance! The DJ gets a 10- the Rock Band gets a 3!
Great place to hang out where everyone's welcome – This place has one of the best mixes of people of any bar in town. After work the patio is packed with people all unwinding and usually full of conversation. Cover bands and orginal acts perform every weekend... I just saw Digital Underground play and I've got to say how great their area is for live music -- the room is just the right size. Friends told me they have a new menu with much better food.
wow – what an amzing place. i have only been there a few times because i live 30 minutes away, but it keeps getting better and better. the entertainment is unbelievable, as is their sound system. many singles out and about each time i have been. would highly reccomend to anyone.
BEST STAFF IN TOWN – OUTSTANDING STAFF, FRIENDLY PEOPLE. DOWNTOWN BAR WITH A NEIGHBORHOOD FEEL. THESE GUYS KNOW HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THIER CUSTOMERS, AND THE TALENT IS AMAZING.
Best C-Town Nightlife – Have been to the animal bar many times and have always had a good time. Great bands, large stage, close and reasonable parking, an amazing staff with the talent to serve enormous crowds. Brad, Matt, and Amber took great care of me on my last two visits. Oh yeah if you want crowds weekends are best!
