Welcome to Frolic and Detour!
Restaurant - Bar - Catering - Events
Located in the stunning water-front property in Nagog Park formerly known as The Red Raven Restaurant, we are a full-service restaurant and bar offering two large dining areas; outdoor seating with a scenic view; a huge loft with private bar for special events and functions; catering and take out; and live entertainment. From the days of the Rusty Scupper or Scupper Jack's, our building's original charm containing our two-story fireplace and original post & beam construction remains strong and proud.
Our main bar features 20-draught lines of the most popular and some unique craft beers from breweries around New England. Our focus continues to be centered around locally-sourced ingredients and hand-crafted cocktails.

Our mission is to offer creative and unique culinary experiences and hand-crafted cocktails in addition to an array of entertainment in the form of music, games and comedy to the Greater Acton area.
