I organized a group of 25 friends for an Oktoberfest celebration at Heidi's. It didn't disappoint. The German food was great and the service excellent. Everyone enjoyed the evening and I'm sure most will go back. I know we will plan to go there again for our next Oktoberfest party.

Dining here was a pleasant surprise. I was weary because it wasn't crowded and thought maybe people don't come here because it's not a good place to eat. But we came on an early Sunday morning while many people were at church or still at home. The waitress was so sweet, kept our coffees full and checked on us often... More

I've been to the bistro on two separate vacations and had excellent food both times. I loved the Yaeger Schnitzle, in particular. Axel is an excellent chef.

We followed Trpadvisor recommendations and tried this restaurant only once: Friendly staff. Home made cuisine, tasty, German style, with a german beer. We liked it and we hoped we had the chance to visit it more... Highly recommended.

The shack-like exterior belies the neat and clean interior. The place is pristine, which is a pleasant surprise for an area loaded with open air, sandy, gritty joints. While the restaurant is small, the tables are not crowded together. We ate two meals. One was beef rouladen, and the other was German meatloaf. The portioning was just right. Each was... More

So did way but we're still looking. Reviews say for the half stars but I would say closer to three it's just average. Had some German potato salad that I've never tasted anything like before that's not a good thing. If you want some real good food go to Linns garden a couple doors down

Not what I was expecting but very good indeed.The service was very good, the food was good and the attention from... More

We went to Heidi's for lunch today after reading about the reviews on tripadvisor.com. What a pleasant surprise! My husband got the Schnitzel special with fries ($12.95) and I got the bratwurst platter ($10.95). I substituted the potatoes for spaetzle with no problem. The plates were huge; we took alot home for another meal. We also got dunkel draft beer... More

I visited this restaurant on 8/29 with my folks who live in Ft Myers Beach. Found it by reading reviews here and was very pleased. We were the only customers there at 6pm for dinner, which was a bit concerning, but more parties were arriving as we sat there and it is low season.... My folks ordered the Lobster Bisque... More
