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

The special of the day was Schweinshaxn (roasted pork shank) and both my wife & I ordered it. And don't miss the chance to enjoy their truly homemade sauerkraut. We were delighted with our meals, which we accompanied with some excellent German beer. We were too full to enjoy what sounded like an excellent assortment of German desserts. Heinrich is... More

I have been to Germany many times, and I can say that this is the most authentic German restaurant I have ever experienced in the United States. From the food to the beer to the decor to the personal touch of the owner visiting your table, you will not be disappointed. Check out the menu on their web site and... More

Heinrich's is fully worth the 1,200+ mile trip. We are visiting from Michigan and chose Heinrichs to celebrate my father in law's 81st birthday. We had a table reservation and reserved 2 orders of schwein hoxen. (Pork shoulder). Thank goodness we reserved them. We were told they were sold out by 4:30! The rest of our party had pork schnitzel... More

Heinrich's gives you a real Bavarian experience without having to change planes and travel overnight!! The food is well prepared, the beer authentic and plentiful with the real glassware from the old country, and the staff very attentive and expecting that the evenings may become a bit boisterous! Casual but yet high end German environment. I really enjoy Heinrich himself... More

I have been on a quest since my mother past to find Red Cabbage as good as she made. FOUND. Add to that true, amazing German wine, an atmosphere comfortable for everyone, and staff that make you feel like you have been a regular since the opening. Bottom line, this is a must visit and for us it will be... More

We found this quaint family owned restaurant by accident. It will be a new regular place to visit when we travel to this area. Loved the food and wait staff were friendly and attentive. Style of the restaurant decor felt from welcoming. Nice comfortable bar along with nice mix of high tops and tables.
