No doubt you’ve seen the blue signs and The Blue Toad if you have been driving down Route 151 between Afton and Greenfield. This past Wednesday evening Todd & Kim Rath held a soft opening of the valley’s newest restaurant. Before Blue Toad, it was D’Ambola’s Restaurant for years.

A big plus for anyone with kids is the fenced in playground just a few short steps from the outside seating.

  1. Food is great! Very friendly & nice! Just remember folks – gratuity starts out at 18% these gals are working in the HOT sun & doing a darn good job learning all the ropes of a new business and To Go orders are suppose to get 10% – 15% – they still took your order, got it ready for you and supplied you with a service.
