Heidi’s gets an excellent rating not because it was without fault but because it is head and shoulders above the other highly rated places we visited while in Fort Myers Beach. Part of that is due to the quality of the food and part is due to the value as a ratio of quality to price. We both had the... More

The food was very good and authentic. The waitress was very friendly and the owner made a point to talk with each customer. You cannot go wrong and we will definitely be back.

Heidi's is one of our favorite restaurants anywhere! When we come to Fort Myers Beach, we make a point of visiting there for their delicious food. This German American restaurant serves excellent quality food with friendly service. They have a week day lunch special for $7.95 on Tuesday through Friday. Recently we were there for their wiener schnitzel and potato... More

Little restaurant on Fort Myers Beach, with fantastic fresh homemade food. Had breakfast on a Sunday and had great service. Pancakes and baked goods to die for.. We will definitely be back.

Authentic German breakfast, lunch & dinner. Fresh homemade flavorful food. German server. But strict about cut off time...don't sleep in late & expect breakfast. A foodie's delight of variety & specialties. Ever tried a liver dumpling?

My husband and I went to Heidi's tonight for supper. We both ordered a salad--mine with chicken breast and my husband's with shrimp. The salads were wonderfully tasty; my chicken was moist and delightful! We got specialty bread and butter as an added bonus which was delicious also! We will certainly go back here to eat before we leave Ft.... More
