About us

The German Lunch and Dinner spot is in the Publix-anchored shopping center at Cortez Road W. and is open Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 8.30 pm. Since opening in September 2014 the Lucky Frog is part of Bradenton’s 10 Best Local Eats, under the 10 first Restaurant from 635 by Tripadvisor, voted as Best German Restaurant by Bradenton Heralds Peoples Choice and has 4.9 Stars from 5 on Facebook. They offer authentic German Meals, a good choice of vegetarian or gluten-free possibilities and everything is made from scratch by the owner, Master Chef Uwe from Bavaria.

The name comes from "The Lion and the Frog" retold by Brothers Grimm. The story is about a frog which encouraged a sad princess to slay a lion to see her prince brother again. On the end the frog is a princess and there is a big wedding with a lot of “German Food”.

On the menu, the dishes are named after the fairy tale. There's the Golden Palace, a Vienna-style Schnitzel with German potato salad, the Queens Heart, a Beef Meat, marinated in Red Wine and Vinegar with Red Cabbage and homemade Spaetzle, and the fresh made Potato Pancakes are the best in town.

Delicious desserts are the Baking Frog - scrambled german pancakes with powdered sugar and ice cream, the Sweet Kiss, a ice cream which looks like spaghetti, with homemade fruit sauce and the Queens Wish, a Apple Strudel with warm Vanilla Sauce.

Master Chef Uwe takes a great care with plating the food. "Your eye is eating first before your stomach. If it's appetizing already, then you really enjoy your meal."
