My fiancée and sat outside for lunch. We had an excellent view of the Chattahoochee River. The lunch was very good and good portion sizes. The food and drinks were reasonably priced.

Yes, we drove almost 2 hours from Marietta to Helen to get this sandwich. It's that good! The people at the table next to us drove from Lawrenceville to get the Reuben! We've had the sandwich many times and it's consistent, packed with so much meat, seasoned perfectly with sauerkraut and cheese and sauce, and the bread is grilled to... More

This place was amazing. They had great food and were nicely priced. Give it a try next time you're in Helen. We had a table overlooking the creek and it was an awesome dinner.

We decided to stop hete due to recommendations by Trip Advisor and motel staff. The location was nice, right by river but the food was unacceptable. Feels like a biker bar. We ordered Wiener Schnitzel which came with potatoe salat and red cabbage. The Schnitzel was just thrown in a fryer, potstoe salad had some strange dark red thick vinegar... More

Good food and beer; super friendly service. Husband had the rueben and it looked amazing! I had a salad which was good, and we shared a cheese platter which we both enjoyed. While we didn't have a table overlooking the river, the weather was perfect and we could still enjoy parts of it from our vantage point. It was crowded... More

We ordered the cheese plate and some meals. Don't bother with any cheese other than the walnut. It was excellent. Meals ok have had better but great atmosphere and service.

The food is pretty good. We always go there because they have Erdinger on draft, which is a delicious German Hefeweizen. The view is gorgeous. Nothing like overlooking the river with a beautiful wife on your arm and a great beer in the other hand....love it.

The best thing about this restaurant was the view! The food was pretty good, but looking over the rushing river was a blast!

I had the Rueben and it was wonderful, however my fiancé had ordered a pitcher of beer, and when she brought it, she didn't bring glasses. We asked for some and she became very annoyed. Later when we asked for water, she said "it'll be awhile."

Let's start with the table cloths: sticky. And then the tables are unusually wide, which leaves you feeling far away from your friends. Food strictly mediocre. Service good, prices reasonable. Wouldn't bother going back. Too many other places up and down the strip that are better.
