We stopped by Heidi's (a restaurant specializing in German cuisine) while spending a day at Fort Myers Beach looking for a nice, quality lunch in a beach town. When we entered the restaurant we found we were the only customers inside and immediately wondered whether we had made a bad decision. Our concerns were soon dispelled by our very attentive... More

It was so worth dealing with island traffic to dine at this wonderful establishment. The food was delicious, the ambiance was warm and we all felt like family by the time we headed out, including a hug as I headed out! Regardless if you normally skip dessert, be sure to grab something from their dessert case!

We were hungry for breakfast and found this place online. The food and service were both good. The restaurant, located in a row of shops, was clean and neat and had a down-home feel. I would eat there again.

Heidi’s gets an excellent rating not because it was without fault but because it is head and shoulders above the other highly rated places we visited while in Fort Myers Beach.
