We were greeted by name with warmth and friendliness. The ambiance had much character w German decor and music, delicious aromas and open kitchen where they cook behind... More

Delicious food and wonderful service. We stopped in for appetizers and will be back for dinner. Potato pancakes with bacon and onions were extra crispy. The Frikadeller was savory and the sauerkraut was the best we've ever had. We'll be back!

It was a very pleasant experience! We had, as an appetizer the Bavarian potato pancakes very tasty! Then of course we ate schnitzel meat was tender and full of flavor!... More

I had the lamb chops which was excellent and the meat literally fell off the bone. All the staff was very attentive and nice.

Jason, our server has been outstanding both times and Heinrich has personally visited our table to assure that we were satisfied. I've tried the schnitzel, rouladen and shank along with the kraut, sweet cabbage and spaetzle. The bier choices are outstanding. My mother who lived in... More

Here I sit at another very satisfying German restaurant in Sanford Florida... and although very good, it is a distant second to Heinrich's fantastic old world Gemutlichkeit! Heinrich himself is a master of hospitality and an unfathomably fantastic chef! The cuisine always feels like I'm back home... and I'm not even German... in fact before I found Heinrich's little gem,... More
