We've eaten here 3 times in the past 3 months & it's been fantastic all 3 times. Last night we had my parents join us and they were as happy as we have been in our past visits.The pork shank special is amazing and if you want one you had better reserve one because they go fast! It is slow... More

Heinrich's German Grill serves dishes with authentic German taste and quality. I was born in Germany and have lived there over 30 years and can say that the Heinrich's team is doing a great job preparing traditional German meals in a cozy restaurant providing the famous "German Gemuetlichkeit." My American wife as well as my wife's family are always looking... More

Heinrichs is my family's favorite place to go for authentic german food. The Bavarian style potato pancakes are amazing and the schnitzel is awesome. My brother and I always enjoy a boot of beer together and Heinrich and his staff make you feel like your part of the family. DAS BOOT!! Guaranteed great dining experience you will not be disappointed.

This isn't a beer and brats place! It is authentic German cooking, light where you don't expect it to be, rich and heavy where it should be - and extremely well prepared. My wife is German (born there, speaks with an accent - you know, really German!) and complains about a lot of places passing themselves off as serving German... More

It is Labor Day weekend and we took a mini vacation from West Palm to Sarasota. I chose Heinrich's German Restaurant because I am selfish. I am homesick and will mot be able to go home to Europe this year. Heinrich was my Doctor tonight and I am glad to announce that I feel Fabelhaft. I had a Wienerschnitzel that... More

Had the Sauer bratten, spatzle, red cabbage & a German weissbeer. Large portion. It was very good! Sat at the bar and watch them prepare a wonderful meal.

This restaurant truly deserves the 5 star rating across the board. Everything from the price to the food to the service to the atmosphere is phenomenal. When we came into the door we were welcomed warmly. Our waiter was very friendly and took great care of us. When informing us of the specials he was very amiable and upbeat and... More

I am a good old German girl and I am cooking German. Since Heinrich opened, me and my husband went there for dinner. We are still cooking our Grandparents meals as well as today's German meals. Nobody else than Heinrich's German Grill could please us with German food. We tried everything and up to today that is the best Schweinehaxen,... More

After reading trip advisor reviews, we were looking forward to a first time dinner at Heinrich's. The meal was so disappointing that we almost felt the reviewers must be Heinrich's relatives or close friends. The jagerschnitzel was dry and the creamy mushroom sauce was no help.The spatzle seemed as if they were leftover from a previous day. The best item... More
