Wonderful Sunday Lunch

Rahmschnitzel with spaetzle and sauerkraut was excellent. That was this day's special. Different specials each week. Ordering from the menu is an excellent choice as well. Wonderful German food.

There is a reason Heidi's is ranked so high on tripadvisor...we visited July 25, just before closing and were greeted by Heidi herself. She made some recommendations about beer and food choices and helped us through the menu. When the food came, we couldn't believe the portions. The amount of food was a bargain for the price. We had the... More

We went for breakfast the first morning of our one week stay. The food was good and the experience pleasant. Decided to have dinner on our last night and it turned out to be the best meal we had had during our stay at Ft. Myers Beach. We chose to try all German dishes from appetizer to dessert...even beer. Delicious... More

Heidi is German and the food reflects a European twist. We went for breakfast and it was nice to see a different set of options. For a beach restaurant, the prices were not outrageous.

My wife and I stopped for breakfast and really enjoyed it. They a friendly and the service is good. The weisswurst with a pretzel for breakfast is definitely worth a try. Breakfast was good not great but I would go again and would certainly try for dinner.

Came here for breakfast and had to come back for dinner for their lobster bisque. Food is so flavorful and plentiful! You won't be disappointed!

We went to Heidi's for dinner recently and enjoyed the experience. We typically like to eat with a view to the water when on vacation, but so often, the only good thing is the view. The food at Heidi's was well worth the lack of view. It reminded me of good home cooking, that makes you want to keep going... More

Good food. Had dinner there last night and had potato pancakes. Very good. Heidi was amazing and the deserts were amazing too! I would recommend any of the food there and get the French onion soup! I will visit again when I'm on Ft. Myers beach again.

This is one of the best restaurants in Florida. Our family visits each year and we are treated to superb food that is served by Heidi, the friendly and welcoming co-owner. We enjoyed the Jaeger Schnitzel and lamb chops. We loved every tasty morsel! The Jaeger Schnitzel is topped with a creamy mushroom sauce that is perfectly paired with spaetzle... More
