Bullfrog's okay if you'd like something different – My wife and I had dinner at the Bullfrog the other night and it was okay.
We’d been there once before and just had appetizers and were less than impressed. There was hardly anyone in the bar. People were nice but the food didn’t give us any real reason to go back.
Since then I got a Groupon-type discount and figured we’d give them another shot since we live in Loring Park.
We stopped by a week or so ago and the place was packed. We couldn’t get service so we left. They were having some type of promotion with live music.
Last Thursday we went back and once again there was hardly anyone there. Frankly I’m wondering how long they will be able to stay around if that’s all the traffic they got on a Thursday night.
We split their appetizer special (I forgot what it was), then Mary Jo had a POPPER BURGER (with deep fried jalapenos, tillamook cheddar , cream cheese, & spicy sour cream) and I had PECAN CRUSTED CATFISH PLATTER (served with red beans & rice, southern greens and blue corn sticks with honey butter). Both entrees were very generous portions.
We have very fond memories of our visits to New Orleans so we were very excited when they announced the concept. Additionally, we like the Bull Dog restaurants, so we had very high expectations.
I’d say this place is okay if you’re in the neighborhood. I asked Mary Jo if she thought the burger was as good as a Bull Dog burger and she said definitely not. I thought the catfish was okay, but if I were to go back I’d try something else.
You’ll have to find parking on the street so be prepared to walk a block or so.
