Great sandwiches and cold beer

We stopped in after day on the river tubing and had really good sandwiches. Service was good and kids enjoyed looking over the river while we ate.

Delicious food in a relaxing setting. We sat outside right next to the river and watched the people float by in the inner tubes. We ordered the restaurant specialty......Ruben sandwiches! Delicious!

The food was okay and our waitress was nice though over worked. The cost for a two-sandwich meal was too expensive.

I'm a huge fan of this restaurant. The servers are always very friendly and I always order the Scandinavian shrimp salad. I highly recommend this salad! I hope they never take it off the menu. Keep up the great work guys!

We sat outside along the river and watched the tubers go by. We had great bird's-eye view of the river. Our server was very good and lots of fun. We had the cheese plate and some German wine, we enjoyed it very much. We got the hot sausage and Camel Rider sandwiches, both quite good and after the cheese tray... More

Decent outdoor seating (shaded for those humid summers and by the river), great beer, and a pretty good Reuben. A yummy fruit and cheese tray too. Great for lunch!

Really enjoyed eating here. Had a bratwurst on a warm bun w/ melted Swiss cheese. A must to sit on the river and watch the tubers go by. Very nice waitress, and will come back again.

Order the Reuben to go, but the Thousand Island Dressing was omitted from the order. The sandwich had lots and lots of meat with just the right amount of sauerkraut. It was good, but would have been better the Thousand Island Dressing had been included. Will probably give them another chance on next trip to Helen.

Don't get the wrong idea - the inside is fine, but the outside is the Flag Porch that leans right out over the Chattahoochie. Listen to the beautiful river while enjoying your German food. Don't forget a cheese tray! Let them pick a selection for you - everything is wonderful. Enjoy!

We went on a Friday night in June, got sat immediately at what we considered the best seat in the house. It was a small corner table overlooking and overhanging the Chattahoochee River and it was perfect for us two. We got the Prime rib and the Veal parmesan... both were out of this World! We figured it would be... More
