Our last night on the island...and there it was. But alas, the menu left me lacking, but the atmosphere and cold beer was great. Loved the flight theme, and GREAT tee shirts. We will be back.

After spending enough time traveling to FWB to consider myself somewhat local, I have to write and recommend Helen Back as the place to go have a bite and a beer. It is right on the water, so has that dock bar kind of atmosphere. It is large so can handle the crowds that it gets well. Very low key,... More

Ate here three nights in a row. Night 1 - large veggie pizza - good, but too many ingredients. Night 2 - cheese pizza with green peppers - much better!!! Crust is delicious and the cheese flavor shines. Night 3 - subs - forgettable.

We enjoyed Helen Back so much the first night, we made a point of visiting again before we left town. The Bloody Mary's were really good, and the pizza was great. Loved sitting outside, listening to music.

We are not fond of the inside, just a big bar, but we love the outside seating, we sit outside where you can still see the games on TV, but the best is the view of the water and boats coming and going. The pizza is great, the chicken salad was very very good. There are fish to feed off... More

It was after 8:00pm when we got to our hotel, the Helen Back Cafe was across the street. The pizza was great and was just what we wanted. Our waitress was very friendly. We would go back and sit on the patio next time.

This place is kind of hidden away, it is near a gentleman's club but do not let that deter you. Our group really enjoyed our experience at the Helen Back Café. Everyone at our table enjoyed the drinks and the pizza was better than expected. We went during Thursday night football and it was busy however, it did not take... More
