Dessert was shared, apple strudel and light cake/ delicious Two .5 liter of ber Total with top was about $240.00... More

Having lived in Germany for 3 years, I have tried some great German food. With that being said, this is the best German food I've ever had. The specials are to die for. This time, I had the curry wurst which was out of this world. Heinrich (the owner) came over and talked to us which you never really see... More

First came here with my little sister back in 2014 to celebrate Germany's win in the World Cup (I was still a junior in High School; time goes too fast for my liking) and absolutely loved the food! If anything, it was the first time I ever had German food and a fantastic first impression too! Two years later (today),... More

The jager schnitzel (I had pork) is delicious. Continues to have the best red cabbage ever. The spatzle is an excellent side dish. They will grate cheese on it, but I like it plain with the sauce from the schnitzel. Had the Gewurtztrauminer (sp) wine. Excellent

Have lived I Sarasota for two years but didn't know about Heinricks. It is fabulous. Many selections of Schnitzel. Probably the best German food we have ever had. Run, don't walk to Heinrich's. Tremendous value. Plan on taking leftovers home. A real gem.

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.
