They serve healthy locally grown food but their efforts to be green and farm fresh are more genuine and not in your face. It was nice to know that although we were eating a burger and fries, it was better for us than usual. Service was great, food was delicious. We're so glad we discovered this spot. It's so convenient one block off Main. And don't listen to the earlier reviewer who complained about too many menus. We had a specials menu and a regular one. Great selections and gluten-free aware.

We found this place online because we were looking for dinner in the Banner Elk area. It's a tiny little hole in the wall restaurant. We went on a tuesday evening and for the first 15 minutes we were there, we were the only ones. Later, in walked 4 more people. The menu is HUGE for such a small place, good beer selection _ not just the average Bud, Bud lights and Coors. Food was good, service was great, very friendly staff. We ordered the cheesy broccoli leek soup, my husband had the falafel and we had the garlic/red pepper humus with pita chips for starters. For desert we had the chocolate "frog" truffle - all I can say is OMG!!!! That was to die for! Our ONLY complaint is that there are multiple "menus" that you are given when you are seated - and we ended up over looking the bison burger and other unique options when we ordered. I would say don't change a thing - except consolidate the menu. Most definitely we'll be back.

A delicious, good for you meal! Had a wonderful experience eating at The Frog & the Monkey. A quiet, quaint spot that didn't disappoint. Refreshing to eat something freshly prepared & different than the typical chains. So glad we found this hidden gem!

We went to the Frog and Monkey on a cold day and had to wear our coat throughout the entire meal. After reading the reviews we hoped for a great meal and we were disappointed. The meal was OK...the sweet potato fries were very good but the rest of the meal was so-so. I don't think we will return.
