Excellent! Every time we go. Have been dining there for years and we are never disappointed. It's our go to place for birthdays, anniversary, Valentine's Day and anytime we want real food. The owner is so sweet and the staff is wonderful.

I recently tried The Heritage House. A Saturday early evening. My wife, my daughter and son-in-law. We dine out quite often. This may have been the worst dining experience of my life. 4 different entrees. One was worse than the next. No one even finished half of their meal. The staff did not seem concerned when I spoke with them.... More

A friend of mine had reccomended this restaurant. The personal attention right away started the experience off right. I was there on a Saturday night and dinner was delicious. Looking forward to going back again soon!

Mom decided to take us here for Dads birthday. My husband is of German ancestry (first born in his family in the US). We enjoyed every bite! The complementary appetizers were tasty and of a great variety! The bread, light and warm. The food was reminiscent of our German roots. Everything cooked to perfection reminding us of Oma's house! The... More

I have never had a bad experience here. The German food is wonderful but so is the American fare. They have one of the best clam chowder ever.

After dropping our son off at the train station, my husband and I set out to get some lunch. We searched for restaurants near us and up came the Heritage House. From the wonderful relishes, including a creamy herring with apples and an orzo, and liver pate and cheese, the meal was fabulous. We both had the Jaeger Schnitzel, which... More

This is so German, it's like having a little Germany in Illinois. We have eaten here multiple times and every time the food has been great. They start you off with the food before the food, as I like to call it. It's the different veggies, crackers, cheese spread, pickled beets, three bean salad and one other. They then bring... More
