We fell across this wonderful restaurant in a strip mall. My husband and I sat at the bar, watched our food being prepared. The brats were delicious, along with the potato pancakes. The great addition is you can reserve a seat at the bar, and a special bar stool. There are tables and chairs for more formal dining. We'll definitely... More

This is a quality place with an excellent staff. We loved almost everything we tried. The potato pancakes were great as was the white borscht, a first for me. The jaeger schnitzel was delicious, as were the and red cabbage and beers. The only "miss" for me was the special pork shank. It just didn't measure up to others I've... More

Finally made it into Heinrich's this past weekend... and we were not disappointed! It's been on our list of restaurants to try for a couple years. Food was amazing. Service was amazing. Owner was amazing. My wife and I have not stopped talking about our meal and will be back ASAP!

The food is wonderful, and the service is equally as good! We have been coming for years! After the meal, be sure to order the plum cake!

A small restaurant buried in a strip mall. Once inside its true German ambiance, music and menu remind one of eating somewhere in Germany. A bit pricey, but a great choice for special ocassions.

This is our second visit and it was better than the first time! My German mother loved it so much that we brought her sister who was visiting from Munich. Very authentic, hearty portions and the atmosphere is so genuine and welcoming! Heinrich always comes to the table to personally check on us! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

Wiener Schnitzel with cabbage is insane. Wiener Schnitzel is served with potatoes, french fries or potato salad. Their pricing is a disgrace, this ordinary German guest house food you would get for less than half what they charge. Tried to take my German friends there, after they read the menu they left.

After many recommendations we finally made it to Heinrich's, and only wish we had done it long ago. Had heard about the roast pork shank and we were fortunate enough to dine on a night when it was being served. Truly superb dish, done perfectly. Our waitress was both personable and possessed a thorough knowledge of the menu items. Heinrich... More

My mother in law is German and this place made me miss her food even more! The ambiance is nice, but food was just average and more overpriced than most German restaurants. I took my husband here for his birthday and we were both disappointed. Won't return.

We come to Sarasota about 4 times a year and every visit we are sure to get a reservation at Heinrichs. My husband talks about the schweinshaxe for weeks after we leave every time. If you want a scheeinshaxe you should reserve it when you make your dinner reservations to be sure they don't run out. We found out during... More
