I do not live in Ft. Meyers, but as a pilot everytime I can fly in this is the place to eat. The food is perfect and I love the atmosphere... Keep up the great work

Best brats on a pretzel roll I've ever had! This place is a hidden gem and the prices are fair. Even my side order of fries were to die for. High quality ingredients at reasonable prices and quick service. If you are looking for something different, tasty and affordable, this is worth it!

Food is amazing! Authentic German food, made by the owners (obviously) a very nice couple! We had the best Bavarian pretzel and beer cheese for an appetizer, then had the schnitzels, chicken & veal plus 2 sides each... Made for the best Black Friday lunch ever! (You can hear the owner/chef pounding out the schnitzel in the back, it's that fresh! No kidding! Can't wait to come try the rest of the menu.

Oktoberfest year round. Great German food. I read several good reviews on this restaurant and I was not disappointed. I had the Jagerschnitzel and a couple of Hofbräuhaus München Originals. The service was great and got I to met Hans who is the owner/chef who was a joy. He made you feel right at home. The whole experience was Wunderbar. PS don’t forget the cheese strudel.

Wonderfully authentic We were lucky to come upon this gem in the heart of Fort Myers. The owner/chef is German and everything from appetizers to strudel is authentically delicious! I highly recommend HJ German Corner and will definitely return to this great restaurant!

Germany in your own backyard Have been wanting to try this restaurant for a while now and today was the day, and I was not disappointed at all. Hans the owner is not only the Chef but also waitstaff, and bus person, oh yes and also the cashier. That's quite a task but also be able to produce fine German cuisine without having to wait for your meal. Please leave room at the end for his homemade strudle with ice cream or black forest cake. If you have been wanting Germn food get on US 41 and head for HJ German Corner for a delightful meal and a touch of the old country.

Achim, the owner, is proud Achim, the owner, is proud of his heritage and loves his food! This small restaurant is a step into German culture with memorabilia decorating the walls and a small gift shop. The food is delicious and served with a smile. I’m working down the menu in order. My next visit will be number four. Every one as good or better than the previous. The beer is delicious - straight from Germany, but you gotta end your meal with an Underberg! Enjoy!!!

Ein Deutsches Juwel This is truly a German Jewel!!!!! Great new restaurant where everything is made to order. The Schnitzel is pounded only when ordered, the menu offers many selections and the Potato Leek Soup is a must! The side selections are all fresh and spot on and the portions are very generous! Desserts are guaranteed to tempt the strictest dieter!! Beers are on tap and very jnteresting, wines are delightful! If you miss this you will be very disappointed!!!! Can't wait to go back again . Hans is the chef and host par excellance!!!!! See you very soon, Hans and many thanks for a delightful dining experience!
