When I got there I was hoping for breakfast but they don't serve it after a certain time. The waitress was not overly friendly but she had a cast on her leg so we cut her some slack. My husband and I both ordered Ruebens which were very tasty. I don't remember any side dish. The meat was very lean... More

I had the biscuits and gravy and my fiancé had the bagel and smoked fish. It was great! They were busy with a lot of turn-around, but our waitress was attentive.

My fiance and myself went to Hofer's expecting to be served as in any other restaurant we've ever been too. It took several minutes to be seated by a hostess, despite the place not being moderately occupied. We were seated and told our server would be with us in a few minutes. Ten minutes later after we had already decided... More

I love all the german cakes and pastries, all the german lunch meat and my favorite the german rolls called brochen . I love the outdoor and indoor seating, my only complaint is that it is so popular the lines are long they need more help!

This restaurant and bakery combo is just average. The sandwiches were good but the prices were quite high. $3 cup of coffee? We also tried several of the bakery items. Save your money - bakery items looked better than they tasted. We ended up throwing ours away after trying them.

We had lunch here. The food was very good as was the service. Do not miss the bakery in front--the apple fritters are fabulous! We had to return for more.

We had a good enough time sitting on the deck at Hofer's the other day during Octoberfest. The German band was fun to watch, but we were a but surprised at a sausage on a bun with no sides costing almost 10 bucks and a small styrofoam cup of German potato salad being an additional upcharge. Our server was hustling... More

Eating here was the experience we were craving and the reason we drove from Huntsville AL to Helen GA...well, one reason. We lived in Germany for 3 years and have missed it greatly so when we heard about Helen we had to visit. Within an hour of waking up we were here standing in a line to get in. Thank... More

Delicious and authentic German food. The Jager schnitzel is the best. Also has good, sweet red cabbage. Small, so sometimes there is a wait, but it is worth it. There is also a bakery and small grocery store inside. The deck is nice and has music, but the food out on the deck is different and I definitely recommend the... More
