It's a shame more people aren't aware of the good eats served here. We look forward to our next visit....and their baked goods are worth a trip themselves.

Food, drinks and service were ok. The massive cockroach in the restroom made us want to leave immediately.

We visited Heidi's twice during our eleven night stay on Fort Myers Beach because the food is outstanding. The Jäger schnitzel with a light cream mushroom sauce, weiner schnitzel, spaetzle, and potato pancakes transport you to Germany. The schnitzel is perfectly prepared. Our sons loved the food and atmosphere. The dining area is cozy, decorated nicely, and quiet. Heidi's is... More

Just moved down to FL 6 months ago....needed to find a good German place. Heidi's was great and delicious. Slow time of year so only saw 2 other groups dining on a Saturday night. Food was well prepared and very tasty. Axel (the owner) and Donna (the waitress) were very congenial. Would definitely return.

The server was very nice and the location and view were great. We brought a friend there for her birthday dinner and the kitchen messed up the order twice. The manager came by and removed the cost of the dinner and was very nice but I would not return.

I had the Wiener Schnitzel and my wife had the Jaeger Schnitzel with Spaetzl. What a treat. Best Schnitzel we've had outside of Austria. Will be going back there for sure on our next... More

This restaurant is a cozy, clean, cheerful venue, with all delicious food made from scratch. We even went a second time, after our first great dinner. The german foods are to die for, tender meats, flavored perfectly, with all the excellent ethnic sides to accompany them. Desserts are equally wonderful. To top off the great food is perfect, friendly service-... More

It would be easy to miss, located in a long trailer across the street from the RV resort on Fort Myers Beach. Worth stopping in for. Fabulous Schnitzel and German beer.

We watched the soccer world cup finals there and had dinner. Everything was very tasty and authentic. They have great German beer on tab as well. The service was excellent!

we went to Heidis for lunch and it was really good. The portion size was great for the price. the atmosphere was great too. the smell of the homemade bread was amazing. However, if you are gluten free, stay away bc there are too many temptations.
