My family ate lunch here recently, after seeing reviews on tripadvisor. It was very good! I had the breaded schnitzel (pork) with red cabbage and potato salad. My daughter had the Rahm schnitzel (pork) with squash and pan fried potatoes, and my husband had a vegetarian plate with potato pancakes, red cabbage, spaetzle, potato fritters, roasted brussels sprouts (you choose...

Went to Helga's a while back (actually fall of 2013) for a full course meal. The sauerbraten was a little dry, but the meat was pretty good. Typical German noodles tasted pretty good,(though not as good as I remember at the Ann Arbor based restaurant at which I worked years ago). The wines were also good. Atmosphere is also good.... More

My mother is from Germany so when I told her about this place she wanted to try it. She really enjoyed the schnitzel brought back memories for. Food is very good. Staff is friendly and pricing is right.

We had a group of 10 after a function at the military base not far away, and our hosts made reservations for the post-ceremony lunch at Helga's. I was delighted, since I love schnitzel and sausages-- and that's what you get here! I think everyone found something they liked-- just a sandwich for the small appetites, to the tasting platters...

With some ethnic cuisines, I could understand authenticity problems in the U.S., but it's not as if you can't find the ingredients for German food in this country. Any Midwestern supermarket will have them. This place wouldn't make it in Germany. The spaetzle was slimy, the red cabbage was cloyingly sweet, and the "Oktoberfest Special" pork chop was tough as...

Decent food with excessively large portions. When the check arrived, a service charge of 15% had been added. When I asked the server if this was the tip, he advised that the was a surcharge to pay the staff a living wage and that a tip was still expected. Needless to say, I don't expect to go back.

My parents spent a few years in Germany with the military. That means the kids had to tag a long, of course. I was the baby so for me it's more family pride that nostalgia that makes me love Helga's. However, as far as authentic German food goes, my parents agree that Helga's is where it's at. We went today... More

We dined here with an eldely relative that loves German food. I must say that this is the poorist German restaurant we have ever attended. We all chose weiner schitzel, and further paid a premium price for veal over pork. It was served dry and over-done, The spatzle tasted like it came from a box? The cabbage soup was heavy... More
