The Flavors of the food here are incredible! I had the Jaegger Schnitzel with chicken. The sauce, the preparation and the sides were perfect. I had the spätzle and red cabbage as my sides and they were so tasty. This is definitely a must go to if you like German food that is authentic. I will be back for many... More

Fresh potato pancakes and homemade saurkraut and German salads go with all their German style entrees. Portions are generous and the ham hock was on the salty side, but generous and tasty.

Despite living almost a thousand miles away, this is one of my favorite restaurants! Such great German food (potato pancakes are amazing). Schnitzel with lingonberries is delicious. Heinrich came out to greet us (and everyone in the restaurant) which was nice! Love everything about this place and it reminds me of my vacation to Germany many years ago.

Good vibe, great staff, and amazing food. Heinrich himself greeted his clients and personally hung out with us. A review cannot justify how great their food is.

Great food! Great service! Friendly people! True German food and flavor. Locally owned, it's an experience! Been here twice and they always deliver. This is not your typical chain restaurant, and I appreciate the effort!

This is the second time I've been here and it has been wonderful both times. I got the pork schnitzel, sauerkraut and potato pancakes. Between all 10 of us nobody was disappointed with anything which is saying something. The owner is such a nice guy and the staff is great!! It's been fun both times.

Food - Amazing, Staff - Amazing, Owner-Amazing!! This restaurant is just all around amazing. The service is excellent. The staff and owner are always so friendly and the food is so so good! If you're in the Bradenton/Sarasota, then head to Heinrichs German Grill. And don't forget to try a Das Boot!

we won't be back any time soon... My German friends are immaculate housekeepers , and we were not impressed by seeing the dust on the entrance table . The Schweinshaxe was oversalted and [ at $ 34.95 ] overpriced. The schnitzel was good , but the Spaetzle were mushy. There's a surcharge of $ 3.50 if you want anchovies on... More

Please do me a fever... don't come back any more to my place. You want everything, but don't want to pay for it ? I really think you need to dine in different type of restaurant (maybe with 2 for one or early birds offers) We will still continue to serve our home made food prepared 100% fresh from scratch,...
