Blue Frog
A North American Family Bar and Grill in the heart of Tianjin

536A8263When an American from Montana came to China as a student more than ten years ago, he had a craving and a plan: bring North American quality family dining to China. It鈥檚 now 2015 and Blue Frog bar and grill is filling hungry appetites in Shanghai, Beijing, and now in Tianjin.


Located in the Riverside 66 shopping mall in Heping District, the modern and comfortable atmosphere complete with a full bar and indoor patio, is the perfect place to relax with friends or family over lunch or dinner. They boast more than 10 different customisable burgers, all made with the freshest imported ingredients sourced from Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina.

It all started with the original Blue Frog burger and the Montana burger, a behemoth half-pound burger with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, BBQ sauce and two extra-large onion rings on top. Now you can choose from more than 12 different 100% Australian beef burgers with ingredients and toppings ranging from blue cheese, to avocado, Parma ham, mushrooms and Swiss cheese.


If burgers aren鈥檛 your thing, they have a range of sandwiches, soups, salads and pastas all made fresh. We tried their Cobb Salad with pepper jack cheese, a bowl of freshly made Minestrone, and seafood pasta, complete with fresh salmon and mussels. All delicious and just as I remember them from back home.


One of the best things about Blue Frog is the comfortable atmosphere that helps meet every customer鈥檚 needs. If you bring your kids, they have a play area set up for them. Mum and dad can rest at a nice quiet table inside. If you鈥檙e coming with friends, you can enjoy their balcony area and people watch in the mall. The staff are all very friendly and can speak some English. The manager told us they have ten core values that all staff are trained in to ensure service and all kitchen staff are transferred from other Blue Frog locations around China to maintain quality and consistency at every restaurant.

At night, the bar comes alive. Blue Frog has one of the most comprehensive lists of different shots I鈥檝e seen in China. There are 100 different shots to try. If you dare, you can pick up a wall of fame card. Every time you order one of their shots, they鈥檒l give you a stamp. When you鈥檝e tried all of them, you can join the likes of those who have finished them all on the wall of fame and receive a free gift. Every time you go to Blue Frog afterwards you can receive one free shot with your meal.


If you鈥檙e planning a birthday party or other event, their patio seats 70-80 people and can be reserved in advance. They can plan the perfect menu for your special occasion. If you鈥檇 like to enjoy their fine dishes elsewhere they can do outside catering as well. Whatever your needs are, they are there for you. Their first core value is, 鈥淭o create a consistently great customer experience by offering quality food and drink at reasonable prices in an inviting atmosphere, and to do it with top-notch service and a friendly attitude.鈥 Judging from my experience, they are doing a great job!


Every Monday, they have a buy one get one free burger special. On Wednesdays, it鈥檚 steak night with an 8 oz steak, glass of wine and soup for only 188 CNY. Every day for lunch they have 60 and 68 CNY business lunch sets including a cup of free coffee. Last but not least, every day from 4 PM to 8 PM they have a buy one get one free refill happy hour.


Come by and try for yourself. They鈥檙e open Sunday to Thursday 10 AM to 10 PM and Friday and Saturday 10 AM to Midnight.
