Heinrich's is a cozy restaurant serving deliciously prepared German cuisine. The Schnitzels are outstanding, the saurkraut, red cabbage, spaetzel, potato pancakes..simply amazing! Portions are good sized. You will love eating here! Service is professional.

Small restaurant with a bar. Call for reservation. If you like various kinds of Schnitzel, you can't go wrong. The potato pancakes are like Mother used to make - superb! And, of course, a variety of good German beers .

We were here twice. First time on a weekday in mid-December. Only a few tables occupied -- the service was wonderful: efficient, friendly, accommodating. We returned on a Saturday in mid January.

Our two couples of German background really enjoyed our evening at Heinrich's. The service was friendly. Two of us chose the evening's pork shank specialty of the evening, one a zigeunerschnitzel ("gypsy" schnitzel, topped with sauteed vegetables), and the fourth the short ribs special.

My wife is 1/2 German and knows good German food. I found this restaurant clean, priced fairly and have only had authentic German one other place in the area. You can't go wrong here!

Neighborhood place tucked into a strip mall. Nice atmosphere. Food is good. I had jagerscnitzel, red cabbage and spaetzle. Had pickled herring appetizer. Both were real good. Wife had beef rouladen which she enjoyed. A friend had two sausages and she was pleased as well. Owner is friendly and makes the rounds. Beer is excellent and they have choices ranging... More
