Wow, we were not expecting this! A real German gem right in the middle of Fort Myers beach. After much debate on where to eat, my family and I decided to give Heidi’s a try. I’m so glad we were not deterred by the road construction. The restaurant is cute, very clean and our server was super attentive. I had one of the best jaeger schnitzel outside of Europe with perfectly cooked, savory dumplings. My husband’s slow roasted beef in horseradish cream was tender, flavorful and authentic. The food is clearly homemade with love. We’ll definitely come back!

Best German food and desserts! The owners treat you like family and it is a true German restaurant, home made food! It feels like being at Oma’s to eat.

My fiance and I are getting married in FMB (our favorite vacation destination) August 16, 2018. There was no question in our mind where our wedding cake will come from. The Black Forest Cherry cake is so delicious, not so sweet and completely authentic ingredients therefore so light it should float off of the plates. We saw the cake and will pick it up tomorrow but of course while there we had to enjoy the second to none jager schnitzel and potato pancakes and my sister in law had the plum kuchen with the most excellent whipped cream. You cannot go wrong with anything you order in this incredible German delight. I'm

We have always made sure to eat here when we are here on vacation. 6 years now. And Heidi’s has always been fantastic. From the settings. The waitress. The food we can’t say enough. You really need to eat here. Tonite was special as we finally met Heidi. She was awesome. Gracious cordial. Spent time with us chatting. Also they made our wedding cake. German chocolate cake. Looks awesome. Make sure you eat here. Best German food since mom.
