Good place to grab a beer, relax

We stopped in for a beer because we had about an hour before a meeting. They had a small, acceptable selection of draft beers. Service was reasonably quick, although it was a little disconcerting that the bartender clearly would have preferred to continue talking to his friends than serve us. We... read more

All servers and chefs are amazing. If you want a specialty dish made they will bend over backwards to help create your perfect dish.

Kind of a hole in the wall type of place. Seems good for grabbing a beer or drink. Very loud atmosphere with several large TV's. Free popcorn to eat while meal is prepared. Pizza crust is VERY thin. I asked for extra sauce and shouldn't have! Toppings are very liberal, even the cheese. Taste of pizza was just ok. Cesar... More

"Just OK" i guess it is because you dont like the kind of pizza we make. i cant apologize for that ,we serve hundreds of people a day who love what we do and love our authentic take on pizza.If you don't like the kind of pizza we serve my advice would be to try one of our awesome sandwiches...

Be prepared to wait, this place is stupid busy for a good reason, the food is amazing! Service is always polite and friendly but a little slow do to the volume of customers. This is something that is well worth putting up with. Easily the best restaurant in the Helen area!

We come to Helen 4 or 5 times a year and always stop in and have a pizza and beer, Many times previously, this place has always served up the best pizza I've had anywhere, except last night the pizza was horrible...

This place is small, especially in the winter when it's too cold to sit outside. AMAZING pizza and a cool, friendly vibe. Lots of beer choices and local wines, too. Popcorn while you wait, which was great for the kids. Thin, crunchy/chewy crust which is how we love our pizza. The white one has huge chunks of garlic on it,... More

Employees were rude from the minute we walked in, to the point of being outwardly snotty in front of other patrons. We were made to wait for 30 mins. while others were seated ahead of us. Please was dark and unclean looking, so it was just as well. Went to Blue Otter in Hiawassee, where we were seated in under... More
