We had a Wiener Schnitel (from veal). It was so oily (not put on a paper towel to get rid of the oil) and the meet was so chewy. My wife had a Schnitzel with a topping of what they called a cream souce with mushrooms. The pork meat here was good, but the suce looked like wall paper clue... More

Had a wonderful authentic German meal here this evening. Big portions so I know what dinner tomorrow is going to. Have to try the light and delicious apple strudel. Wait staff and owner could not do enough to make sure we has a great time.

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.
