We are from an area where good German Food is hard to find. After reading the high ratings this restaurant has attained we were compelled to go and were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome by Heidi and, in addition to well prepared delicious food, we also got attentive service in a spotless, attractive setting.

Don't be fooled by the "store front" look. Great authentic German food. A respite from the tourist spots. Heidi is warm and welcoming.

So we both had Wiener Schnitzel with homemade Spaetzle. The Pork schnitzels were perfectly browned and were delicious. The spaetzle was just right. We both had ordered a brown sauce (small... More

What a treat!!! No surprise that Heidi's is the #1 restaurant in Fort Myers Beach. We went back to Heidi's for a third or fourth time and it was fantastic (again). We called 2 days in advance and special ordered the Schweinshaxe (because it takes the chef hours to prepare). We also had the jaeger schnitzel, potato soup, liver soup,... More
