We visited Helen for a long weekend trip and we loved this place so much we came TWICE! The pizza is super good and cooked in a brick fired oven. The staff were all amazing and super friendly. Thank you for the amazing food!

I mean yes the food is good but the wait was beyond long. I can recommend for the food if you have patience. I don't and the length of time before we got our food was incredibly long.

This has to be the best pizza place in all of Georgia. My husband had the loaded meat and I had the loaded cheese. We each got the 10" and we both demolished both of them. Whenever we visit Helen, we make it a point...of going to this restaurant. It's absolutely wonderful. You can eat inside or out regardless of weather. The outside has large heating elements for comfort.More

We stopped in for pizza and found it to be very friendly, fun, multiple tvs, and great pizza, plus huge salads! Will eat here again!

Fabulous service and pizza. Everyone so friendly on Thanksgiving night. Ordered a pizza to go and had a drink at the bar. Small but very cute area. Pizza was thin crust and amazing! Hubby from Philly said some of the best ever! We are pizza...snobs and loved it! Again, the service was absolutely amazing!!More

We got a medium carryout pizza here, and it did not disappoint. Thin crust pizza was fresh, hot, and delicious pizzeria pizza, not the frozen stuff. We will visit here again on future trips to Helen!

I've been coming to Helen for years but never stopped in here. I came in around 2pm on Tuesday Sept 26, 2023 just to get a sub sandwich for take-out. I sidled up to the bar like a good pilgrim and was immediately greeted for...my order. I ordered The Gobbler, a turkey sub on hoagie with a side of potato salad. The sandwich was very good and huge! The hoagie is large and loaded with turkey, a relish sauce, tomatoes and red onions. The potato salad was decent, no mustard at all which was a disappointment but that's how they make theirs and it was still good. If you are ordering The Gobbler, make sure you get a fork and knife, it's so large it's almost impossible to eat because you can't get your mouth around it to take a bite (not a complaint!). The atmosphere is really chill, they have a bar and a couple tables inside and a great patio out front for outdoor seating. They are pet friendly, at least ok the patio. The servers are really friendly, professional and efficient. My server was apparently a new employee, I wish I had gotten his name but he is a great guy, very polite. Definitely recommend and will return.More

I am a chef, in the true sense of the word, and I have much experience in making pizzas and I truly appreciate pizza that resembles ones from NY and Chicago, or at the very least one that is made with effort and dedication to...the craft. I had guests staying with me over the last couple of days and they were wanting pizza on two of there nights here with me us and we, my wife and I, choose Nacoochee Village Tavern to provide us with a hand crafted Brooklyn style pizza that would satisfy most pizza aficionados requirements. Alas….didn’t happen. My opinion is that either they don’t know how to deliver on this or they don’t have the tools to pull this off. Either way, $23 for these pizzas was in no means fair and equitable. So dissatisfied and disappointed, that I couldn’t apologise enough to my guests. There are hungry and will more that likely eat a slice or two but it will not at anytime conjure up memorable moments of there stay here with us in Helen. BTW, they are from NY. Sorry but I will more that likely go with Dejourno. Oh, almost forgot, the paper that was under the pizza was stuck to the pie itself. Undercooked.More

We liked this spot because it was not in town, had ample parking, and was attractive from the road. We had quick service and ordered paninis. (The on-line menu, I thought mentioned pizza by the slice and soup of the day, but neither was available.)...We enjoyed our meal and had good service.More

This place is not on the Helen strip so it’s out of the traffic area. We went on a Saturday and it was moderately busy. You seat yourself and we didn’t actually get quick service. We had to flag someone down after several other families...were waited on. It seemed like they were short staffed like most businesses. I wanted to get up and leave. I’m glad we stayed. The waiter was great and the food was even better. We got the Carnivore pizza (meat lovers) a plain cheese pizza, garlic sticks, and a Caesar salad. No complaints whatsoever. We will go back if we are in the area. Good place for any type of group. Looked like a good beer selection. You can sit inside or out. Huge sandwiches. Big salads.More

Good pizza, many different choices and friendly service. It wasn't the best pizza i've ever had but it was definitely above average and we had leftovers which allowed for a second meal during our trip which is a win win in my book.

I am giving one star because the food was not horrible. The online menu shows half subs and side salads. When I asked for this at the restaurant I was told it was not an option. I needed to adjust my family’s order due to...this. I then waited 15 minutes for the server to come back, and only after I asked another server to ask her to come back did she actually appear. We waited 45 minutes for our food, during which time the tables around us, that were seated and ordered after us, received their food. Our food came out cold, and a salad was missing, as well as a side. I waited for more than 10 minutes on the house salad before I went inside and asked that it be canceled, due to the other food being cold and other family members finishing their meal. The server appeared and told me the salad was an entree which is why it was supposed to come out with all the food. She told us the manager took 20% off of the bill, but it was only 10% when we finally got to pay, after going inside and waiting by the bar because we waited for 15 minutes at the table and she never came outside. Oh, and we never got the side to one of the meals, and we didn’t ask after the reaction the server had to the salad not appearing. The restaurant was not busy. Maybe it was us? Not sure. We won’t be back to find out.More

Sadly no, but they do allow you to tie your dog up outside the patio near where you are seated. We do it all the time.
