      We visited Greenville a few years ago on our honeymoon, and took the opportunity to eat at as many of the local establishments as possible. Despite our intention to eat at a different restaurant every day, there was one place we snuck back to multiple times. Where was it? The Black Frog!

      For those who appreciate a sense of humor, fun, and relaxation with their dining, the Black Frog is the place to look for it.

      Similar to Road Kill Cafes, the Black Frog teases its patrons with a laughable menu and a lighthearted fare.

      Kids will love the humor and adults will get a surprised chuckle out of it as well (it’s all online, but don’t look at it unless you want to ruin the surprise!).

      The location is very easy to reach, being almost exactly in the center of Greenville, and directly on the shores of Moosehead Lake (a very large, pine-bordered, island-dotted Maine lake). The interior is clean, with the tables being pretty close together (a little too close for my comfort), with lots of glass windows to enjoy the view.

      We ate there 3 times or ...

      • so, and got different dishes and appetizers each time. Once you get past the funny names and descriptions, the food is all very familiar and covers the bases from traditional Maine food to several American favorites (crab rangoon, nachos, turkey dinners, ribs).

        The fact that it covers so many dishes is definitely the highlight here, as any size family will have find everyone pleased with the offerings. None of the food was exceptionally awesome, but all of it was enjoyable and absolutely edible.

        For the rural location, it is the all-around best choice for those

        seeking a wide variety of foods. The service struck us as a bit offish, as from the menu we were expecting good humored, humble help.

        Instead our waiters and waitresses seemed prim and almost arrogant or elitist, but perhaps that was an assumed air to ward off patrons getting too friendly. The prices are all fairly reasonable, and you’ll find something to fit your budget and your tastes.

        Head to the Black Frog when you are looking for casual, fun dining. In summary, the service gets a 5/10, the food gets a 6/10, and the atmosphere gets an 8/10.
