Don't let the name fool you: The Fat Frog Cafe is nothing like a cafe and everything like a friendly, neighborhood bar. The interior is decorated in warm beiges and dark wood, with comfortable booths and leather-upholstered stools for the tables, and high-backed bar stools for the long, wraparound bar in the middle of the room. Located in Littleton's downtown historic district, the Fat Frog offers karaoke three times a week, live music on Fridays, darts, drink specials and eight familiar brews on tap. It's a fun place to stop after browsing the boutiques on Main Street, before heading toward the city for a night of debauchery, or just to sit and enjoy a beer with the friendly staff.
Welcome to Fat Frog - NOT! We recently moved to Littleton and received a coupon in the mail to try out the Fat Frog. We tried THREE TIMES and were turned away each time. The first was an attempt to have lunch. It was closed. We thought, perhaps, that they were not open for lunch, but we've seen several reviews for lunches. The second was when we arrived 15 minutes prior to close. Most restaurants will seat you right up to closing time, but the door was locked. We were there are quarter of 9. So, we went to another local restaurant, Delvickios, that also closed at 9 and were seated, along with two additional couples who were behind us. That was a lovely experience. The third time, we arrived at 8:05 p.m. As we walked in, the guy behind the bar said "We stopped seating at 8." I could not believe he said that and asked for clarification. He repeated the message. So, I told him this was our third attempt to try out their cafe. He just shrugged. So I said we would not try again and we left. Unfortunately, we will not have the opportunity to try their food. We have been welcomed to Littleton by many other venues and love this town. But, they sure do not need the Fat Frog on Main Street!
I crashed a Christmas party. Unintentionally, I might add, but nonetheless, when I waltzed into the Fat Frog Cafe earlier this afternoon to check out the new digs, I came face-to-face with a blizzard ... More »
