After hearing talk about the place for so long, I finally decided to give Bullfrog a try, following a rather impromptu Selin's Grove visit. Located in an average-looking building on an average-looking street in the somewhat average-looking town of Williamsport, Bullfrog seems, from the street, to be a typical city bar, even going so far as to have a Bud Light banner on their front door. That kind of threw me off from the start. But I walked in anyway.

It's a pretty simple setup inside, bright and roomy, brewing tanks in full view. There is a good-sized bar and plenty of dining space, and a small spot for bands to play. Not really my kind of place as far as atmosphere goes, and the crowd wasn't too appealing either.

As far as beer goes, I was pretty disappointed. Everything was mediocre at best, basic and uninteresting. General word-of-mouth got my hopes up, I suppose. They did have a pretty good selection, and a good range of styles, but after a sampler flight, there was nothing I really wanted a full pour of.

Service was okay. Our bartender was quick and to the point, but was also very curt and standoffish, and didn't seem to display any discernible knowledge of the brewery and its products. He kind of just furthered my overall opinion that this was more of a neighborhood bar under the guise of a brewpub, than an actual brewpub or beer destination.

The food was good at least. The menu was decent with some interesting options in addition to basic pub grub. I took the simple path and got the jumbo BBQ wings, and they were actually pretty amazing. Overall prices were not bad.

I wouldn't really recommend this place to anyone other than locals. I like to go to Selin's Grove about once a year, and despite Bullfrog being an easy ~35-45 minute drive away from there, I can't say they have anything to offer that would have me revisiting.

I stopped by for lunch before a flight out of Williamsport mainly to sample the Veritable Grrrz. The atmosphere is fantastic and the crowd fits well. The beer list had some interesting options but I had to have the Veritable Grrrz and then after rewally enjoying it, another. It was fantastic! I had a burger and fries which were decent but nothing special. I really enjoyed my visit and will certainly go back.
