“Great German Food”

Lucky Frog Restaurant
Ranked #3 of 611 Restaurants in Bradenton
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$22
Cuisines: German, Mediterranean
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."

Great food, equal to the best pork knuckle we ever had. Large portions, nice fresh food, homemade strudel, couldn't have been more pleased. Friendly family run restaurant, nice music. Will return again, great night! Thanks!

Hard to find, so have your GPS as it is out of site of main road, but what a great place to eat! Nice German couple serving great food in a friendly atmosphere.

A very nice selection of traditional German food. The food exceeded our expectations and the service was friendly, smart and non-intrusive. The best spaetzle I've tasted.

Such a nice atmosphere, friendly service and delicious food! Authentic German/European cuisine far from the usual Schnitzel cliché. Highly recommended!

I have to say we have never had a bad meal here, while we don't eat German food but about once a month it is one of our favorites. Staff is very friendly, one can enjoy a quite meal and the specials are wonderful. We especially enjoy the Schnitzel with mushroom sauce, served with spaetzle and side salad. The strudel is delicious, large enough to share.
