This is the best place for drinking around Helen. Bartenders are friendly and welcoming. Nice place and awesome ambience. Good for relaxation after busy day of strolling.

Great place right in the middle of the strip in Helen. You can take a seat, relax and listen to really good live music. Restaurants and shops are all around so it's a very convenient place to stop for a while and enjoy the atmosphere...More

Very crowded though, but once you have a spot, you're good. Eat before if you can, or skip across the street to Betty's to grab a quick bite. Hofer's is close too, but usually very crowded. Just drink and be merry all day long! Even...More

Cool spot to hang out and have a beer or two at. Good people watching. Service is good and they provide some comic relief as well.

I get not playing entirely Oktoberfest music, but an occasional break from 70s-80s covers would be nice.On a warm day, its too hot under the tent (badly need some fans). Nice place to visit, but could be so much better!

We come to Helen frequently. This place is a big crowd draw. It is a fun atmosphere with a real beer garden feel. The beer selection is solid. And our waitress was very cool. But the food. Oh God. Avoid the food at all costs....More

Beer is OK but food menu is a joke: some overpriced wurst or a huge pretzel for a price of a meal - total of perhaps four items.

My daughter and I stopped in for a beer and a pretzel. The Beer cheese they serve here is the best we have had anywhere! It is worth a trip just for a pretzel and beer cheese!
