“Chef Sean A. Wight’s vision of an affordable yet stylish dining and social club is born in Frog Hollow Tavern. Located on the 1200 block of Broad Street, The space is a modern “Restaurant meets Bar” where a diverse crowd of people enjoy the company of others paired with a comfortable atmosphere, detailed service, and exquisite affordable cuisine. Expect a dinner menu that features a substantial amount of local and regionally grown seasonal quality ingredients, prepared with the intention of letting the freshness speak for itself. Reservations are a must! ”
