It was 5:30 pm on a Friday, when we stopped here. There was no other customers the whole time, but it may that the beach crowd eats late. I ordered breaded Jaeger schnitzel with mushroom gravy, German potato salad, and spaetzle to split with my...More

Was looking around for a new place to eat and found Heidi's on TripAdvisor. We have always passed by this place without knowing it was there. We had the jeager schnitzel, beef roulade and the Bavarian trio...all of which were amazing in their own way....More

Back again for great German food. If you want some some home-like cooking, stop by and visit Heidi, Ramona, and Axle. You can't go wrong here! We do dinner here... haven't tried breakfast or lunch, but I'm sure it's good. Thanks Ramona!

I'm really sorry but this should not be the #1 place to eat in Fort Meyers beach. We were the only people in the place and we still had terrible service. Food wasn't the best.

I wish we would have eaten here at the beginning of our stay, that way we would have known what to expect the rest of the week. This is the number one place in the area per trip advisor. Poor Ft Myers beach. This is...More
