I can always appreciate a good deal, and this time it was not in the form of a Groupon.  A few weekends ago I was walking through Lakeview when the restaurant Frog N Snail caught my eye. After doing some digging, I stumbled across their Facebook page, which mentioned an Unlimited Mussels deal on Thursday nights- for $20 they offer all you can eat Mussels, Fries, and a Shlitz. It didn’t take much more convincing to give it a try.

Frog N Snail is a pretty restaurant nestled right on Broadway and Briar. We had no issues making a reservation although the restaurant was respectably full when we arrived. There was no need to look at the menu since we both knew we were going with the special.

The fries were extremely flavorful covered in an array of seasonings. No ketchup was necessary (or offered). The mussels came in a big bowl and were steamed with a butter and white wine sauce. After finishing our first bowl there was plenty of broth at the bottom to dip the bread or fries. We also ended up eating it like soup since it was still warm. We each ordered a second bowl and it was just as full as the first. I appreciated the fact that this was truly unlimited and they were happy to bring out the second portion. While two bowls each were enough for us our waitress recalled a recent guest who managed to eat six bowls.

This is definitely a deal worth checking out since they were some of the best mussels I’ve ever had. If you’re looking for a new dinner spot next Thursday and enjoy fresh mussels check out Frog N Snail.
