A great place to stop on Main St., overlooking the river

Great location on Main Street overlooking the river. Service was also very good. We had only hard cider and draft German beer with cheese and crackers as an afternoon break, so we can't comment on the other items on the menu.

I am sure this place would be better, if they stuck to one genre of food. I had the "Classic American" burger and the wife had the chicken Parmesan. For an appetizer we had the nachos with 3 sauces. Although the service was top notch, and our server Tracy was attentive, the food do not rise to the level of... More

There are several restaurants in Helen who serve German food; however, after trying all of them, Cafe International has the best Ruben sandwich you'll ever eat! And, their red cabbage is the best also! Not only do they have good food, but it's so enjoyable watching the river tubers going down the river while eating there.

great outdoor dining experience. Indoor dining is also offered. Great river's edge view, we watched the tubers float down the river as we ate.

Dinner started off with an awesome view of the river. Julie was out waitress and did a great job. She was quick to the table and checked on us often. I will say it was not very busy while we were there but I have no reason to think the service would be any worse if it was. The food... More

Our first time there Saturday will most likely be our last time. We were seated right away by a very pleasant young lady. 10 minutes later no one had come to our table to even acknowledge that we were waiting to place our order for drinks and lunch. During this 10 minutes the cashier and several waitresses would look in... More

We were walking on Main street looking for German food and Euro beers and stopped at the sign and low and behold they have my favorite beer on draft which is Pilsner Urquell (Czech Beer). Nice selection of German food as well. We started with a nice cheese platter which was delicious especially the warm bread. We both had German... More

I'm a very picky eater. So it's hard for me to find places I like to eat at. The menu just doesn't offer a wide variety of choices. But the staff is very friendly, and our food got to us in a good time. Just wish there was more choices!

We had a good meal here but it just felt dated to us. The location is great especially if you can get right on the edge of the river to watch the tubes go by. The drinks were way over priced (4.99 for a Mikes Hard Lemonade in a bottle). Our service was good and as mentioned the food was... More
