Sorry, John, to read that you didn't enjoyed your meal in our Restaurant. German food is very different to American food, like burgers, fast food or Americanized Pizza. We're cooking everything fresh, eating a lot of pork and potato salad or homemade noodles (Spaetzle). Everybody...More

Went for the first time with three other people, a year ago. We all seemed to agree that it was a nice kept secret restaurant. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. People were very cordial as well. We plan to go there again soon.

I had the pork sampler with a side of spaetzle covered in Swiss cheese. For desert I had a chocolate lava cake with whipped cream. The main course included more than enough to feed this 300 pound guy. Going back again soon.

Went here on a whim to try something different. The name always confused me and was never sure what kind of food they had. Best decision ever to try it. I got the "dark forest" tender pieces of pirk with onions in a cream sauce....More

Description
The German Lunch and Dinner spot is in the Publix-anchored shopping center at Cortez Road W. open Monday - Saturday. Since opening in September 2014 the Lucky Frog is part of Bradenton’s 10 Best Local Eats, voted three times as Finalist by Bradenton Heralds Peoples Choice and has 4.9 Stars from 5 on Facebook. They offer German and Mediterranean Meals (vegetarian or gluten-free possibilities available) and everything is made from scratch by the owner, Master Chef Uwe. The name comes from "The Lion and the Frog" retold by Brothers Grimm. 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. 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."
