I think this is now the Schnitzel Lodge, which is great! Please see my review of Schnitzel Lodge, and, Trip Advisor, please update the site!

It's a German Restaurant, friendly folks run this place. Go early or make reservations, it's usually packed. You really should try it out especially during October Fest. Food is awesome you won't be disappointed.

The worst German food I ever had. The food is very dry, heavy and tasteless. The wine is very expensive and they only give half a glass. The service is very slow. All in all I consider it a rip off.

Those that remember the Bitburger Pub will probably be disappointed with Helga's smaller menu, however, the food is still excellent (and legit) and the German beers available on tap are what you make the trip for. Prices are higher, as I am sure the costs...More

I went in for lunch and found a menu that had less items but prices were dinner prices. The waitress's are always friendly and the owner is too.

As of March 2014, Helga's Restaurant has closed! There are no plans at this time to re-open it. The owner closed it for personal reasons.

This restaurant is closed as of April 2014. Just an FYI so you don't waste your time traveling to this establishment. Heard it was a good place while open though.

If you are in the Destin, Florida area and crave some good German food it's the place to go. Maybe Helga's isn't the most comfortable restaurant or has the best service, but it's a delightful place to have a decent German meal in Florida's panhandle....More

Probably one of the worst meals I have had in a long time! The spatzle was cold, pasty and tasteless. Could not even cut the schnitzel with a steak knife. I have had better tasting red cabbage from a jar. I had hope that since...More

This is as close as I've come to tasting German food. (lived in Germany for 4 years). The spaetzle is delicious as is their goulash and various schnitzels. They normally have 3 or 4 authentic german beers on tap. The wait staff is always friendly...More
