Every time we take a trip to Helen, Ga, we make sure to find time to eat at this place. The pizza we ordered was huge for a family of 5 so we even had some to take home to eat. Each time we eat...here its great and will continue to eat here each time we come to Helen, Ga.More

Pizza was good and huge sandwiches. Glad to see they used local venders. Waited a very long time for pizza to be ready. Waiter seemed very busy while other waitresses and waiters were more attentive.

I just really like this place. It does close early 9pm so be warned. The employees have always been very nice to me and in good moods so not sure about the negative reviews. The pizza is very good, the meatball mess is so very...good, drinks are cold. They have great specials too.More

Excellent Pizza & Service! We had a great lunch in here. Loved the carnivore pizza and the oregano vinaigrette dressing on the side salad was outstanding. Would definitely eat here again.

We traveled 6 hours to reach Helen and had pre planned to visit this restaurant for Lunch but when we arrived, it was closed, Hours of operation is totally false, don’t check there website or on TripAdvisor, Please call. They don’t open until 4 pm...on Thursday. Any way we thought of giving them another chance and went for dinner, my wife had Greek salad with no Olives and they put so many Olives, very disappointing experience !More

Ordered a pizza to go & it was 1 of the best pizzas we have had in a long time. Plenty of beers on tap if dining in. Definitely worth a try if in the area.

We found this place the last time we were in Helen and fell in love with it and the food. My wife and I both get the gobbler cosmopolitan style, I get it as is but the wife leaves off the garlic Mayo and they...are big. It is the best sandwich I have had ever and I am usually not a fan of peppers. We haven’t tried the pizza yet but it looks and smells fantastic. We drive over an hour from home just to eat lunch here. Well worth trying if your in the area.More

This place has great pizza! We eat here almost every trip to Helen. The service is always great as well. My only complaint is that they NEVER have the sticky buns that they advertise. I have tried for three years (and we are there a...week every year) to get them. I call EVERY day - early- to see if they have some. I have never been able to acquire them. So although the pizza is delicious, I do get frustrated that they have items on the menu that you can't actually ever get.More

We had family dinner with our friends and teens. Good thin pizza with variety of choices and toppings and even have gluten free one for our friend.

This is the kind of place you might pass by because it's not in the heart of downtown, but it is well worth the stop. Plenty of outdoor seating. While there is nothing fancy, you want to be there for the food! Our server was...beyond excellent - knew just when to check on us, and when to give us time. He recommended a canned cocktail ( Wild Leap, made in Georgia) that was amazing! We even went back to downtown to get some from the package store. The pizza was good, but the focaccia and oil/herb dip was perfection! You get a good amount and even though I ate quite a bit, we had some to take back to the hotel. It was even good the next day. This is the kind of place you can't wait to return to.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.
