Heidi's is very good German food, authentic enough, but not wonderful. Goulash soup was too salty; Pork with mushroom sauce was tasty, but not a rave.

Had the German cuisine and it was freshly prepared and delicious! Especially loved the sauerkraut, red cabbage and homemade pretzel. Nice decor and a nice getaway from the busy "Times Square" area.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon. Me and my daughter split the Schnitzel and it was by far the best we have ever had. Their german pot. salad is the bomb! I will return on our next trip to Fort Myers Beach.

Just had breakfast at Heidi's! Nice little restaurant, great atmosphere, good menu and wonderful service. Nice people :) A good sized omelet and hot coffee, with apple strudel to take home for a snack. Would love to come back and check out the beer and wine selections that they have. Some seating outside, which would be great for lunch or... More

I had the wiener schnitzel and my husband had... More

Recently dined at Heidi's and we were very pleased with the variety and quality of the food. Schnitzels were great as well as the spaetzele and red cabbage. Ended with a very tasty piece of chococlate cake - delicious icing.
