The breakfast at Heidi's was outstanding. I wish we would have gone for lunch or dinner. The service was great Karin our waitress was great. I can't wait to go back next year, we visit Ft. Myers beach ever year.

“Great Ist Sunday of the month buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

I was there for a dinner and it was very good but the buffet gave me a chance to try a little of everything. It was not that much higher the some of the regular item menus. Service was good and when I get back to Ft. Myers Beach in 2014 I will come back here again.

“Charming Gluten-free lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

We were nervous about German food. Would it be too heavy for island life or turn out to be just hot dogs and sauerkraut? Boy, were we in for a pleasant surprise. The menu is varied and accommodating of many tastes. We are gluten-free and were thrilled to discover that German food is naturally gluten-free. Donna, our server, was helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. We've been twice and were very pleased both times.

“very good schnitzel and sausages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

excellent schnitzel with creamy mushroom sauce. had it twice, once with spatzle? (german pasta) and once with german potato salad which were both ok but not my favourite. my daughter had the cuban sandwich twice which she loved. my wife and son had a selection of german sausages which were excellent. I had the apple strudel once for dessert and didn't quite care for it. not the traditional phyllo pastry that I was expecting; it was wrapped in a thin sheet of what seemed like uncooked dough. parking is a bit tricky as it is at the edge of the busy estero blvd. backing out into traffic was a bit adventurous.
