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

We went to Heidi's for breakfast because our hotel front desk clerk recommended it. We walked in at 8:00 am on a Thursday morning and we were the only ones in the restaurant.The owners were sitting outside when we arrived. The temperature outside was around 85 degrees, so we asked for iced coffee. Well, the woman who waited on us... More

Based on the excellent reviews from other diners, I ordered Jagermaier Schnitzel with spaetzl and red cabbage. Mmmm yum!!! Loved it! My husband enjoyed a taste of Germany with The Bavarian, a sampling of different meats with gravies. The house dressing was delicious. Loved the quaint atmosphere. Our server was quite helpful and friendly. Can't wait to try their breakfast!

I was born in Germany, raised all over the world, my family were in Show Business, Czech, Polish, Russian and most important American since a teenager. The food, the atmosphere, the service and the people there, oh my, words cannot express. It makes me feel my mother is cooking and showering me with affection. Need I say more! We're going... More

We had the Jagermaier Schnitzel. It was one of the best that I have eaten. The food reminded me of what my grandmother used to cook.

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.

We were there for a lunch. Excellent Jaeger schnitzel w. spaetzl! Goulash soup was good, but a bit salty. Kid's menu was very good. Staff very friendly, and forthcoming. Dinner menu looked awesome. All in all, delicious food!

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.
