“Pleasant surroundings; excellent food.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

I found the decorating scheme quite restful. The iced tea was some of the best. I had weiner schnitzel and it was among the best i have had. It came with spaetzal (sp?), and for $12.95, lunch, i would have liked included something lighter like a small salad. Regarding the quantity, it was more than enough. My husband had the Reuben and i liked it a lot. There was.a good flavor difference from "normal" which was good. I think it was in the sauerkraut.

“Excellent breakfast, coffee, and dinner, we didn't make it there for lunch but I'm sure it would have been great as well!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We ate breakfast here twice and supper at the once a month buffet on our recent trip to the island. All the food and beverages were excelent in a great casual atmosphere. My wife loved there coffee. Family owned and operated.

“Excellent German food!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Heidi's this past week. We were fortunate enough to be in town on the first Sunday of the month to take advantage of the buffet. Great way to try all their fabulous dishes. We love German food and the other reviews are correct, this place will not disappoint. We will be back!

“Heisi's Island Bistro Dinner”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is not nor does it pretend to be a gourmet restaurant. This is a very good restaurant serving German food. The wait staff was very attentive but not hovering. The service was prompt and the courses were nicely spaced. The cream of potato soup was excellent, the dinner salad fresh and crisp (the house dressing was very nice) and the main courses were delicious. The decor is very pleasing and with several couples dining at the same time it was still easy to carry on a conversation at our table. The wine selections were limited but all varieties are available, reasonably priced and very nice. This was our first visit, we were very pleased and we will be going back. If you enjoy German food make it a point to stop by. Their bakery is very good as well.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stopped in for breakfast and enjoyed it very much. We each had the Farmer's breakfast and it was a delicious start to our day. It was early January and they were not too busy. Had some time to chat with our server, Donna, and she made us feel right at home. We took out a couple of items from the bakery counter and enjoyed them later in the day. A great choice for a home style breakfast and tasty bakery items.
