It was a quiet morning and wanted to go someplace close to where we were staying. Food was good, Husband had crepes and I just had a simple breakfast with fruit. Husband loved his crepes! Mine was good too. Very, friendly and quick service.

There's a reason this place has been around for so long, I think the 70's.... Number one in my book, service!!! It makes all the difference. It is obvious that the ownership prides itself on training the staff well, and it shows. Every step of the way, we had very polite, energetic, informed, and prompt staff waiting on us. From... More

We went there for breakfast and my hubby had the biscuits & gravy and was very disappointed. No sausage in the gravy??? I had the country fried steak & eggs and it was so-so. We did not try the pancakes or waffles so maybe they are better.

Sandy, I'm sorry to hear that your husband was so disappointed in his biscuits and gravy. We make our country gravy with many pounds of sausage, Italian sausage, bacon and ham. We aim to exceed our guest's expectations with plenty of meat in our gravy. I wish you had brought that to our attention immediately because it would be easy... More

Glorious day! I found a place that makes breakfast with actual gluten-free pancakes that taste like pancakes. I know for most people this is not a big deal, but when I gave up gluten due to gut problems, I missed pancakes most of all. Okay, for everyone else, Heidi's is a very cute, family-owned business that has a quaint Swiss... More

The building is definitely an eye catcher. It resembles a Swiss chalet. But once inside, you realize it too is a very interesting place to eat. The food was delicious and reasonably priced but the staff made you feel special too. They were very friendly and welcoming. A fun and delicious place to eat.

But call first. Specials like happy hour seam to come and go with season Dinning with excellent lake views. All offerings are of excellent quality but pricey.

This place is not very attractive from the outside but the inside is very nice with lots of historical items and things to look at. Breakfast was delicious on Saturday. Ham steaks were the best!

Heidi's had old school Swiss chalet decor, its older but that adds the the character. The food is fresh hot and comes out fast, I have always gotten amazing service here.
