We ate outside next to the river and watched all the people tubing down the river. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. A definite must do when in the area.

We ate inside to cool down but we think it was cooler outside. We ordered the brat combo and a nacho plate without jalapenos. We waited the two table beside us got their food ate it and left and the next two tables came in...More

I can only think this place doesn't care about getting great reviews. I almost never leave mediocre ratings because I go places I've read reviews for first. This one I hadn't checked out first. But I made a simple request... to swap out the bleu...More

The location beside the river is spectacular but the food was not....in my opinion. I ordered the Reuben sandwich and it was supposed to be made with corned beef or at least pastrami. The meat looked and tasted like ham. I will try another place...More

After a long trip in the river, we changed and had lunch here. I love it! The nachos and the Ruben were fantastic. Service was great! Best restaurant in Helen!!!!

Indoor and outdoor seating, that's a plus. Food was good, specialty drinks were good. Not authentic German food if that's what you are wanting but I would definitely recommend to have a bite and a drink !

We came looking for an more authentic german lunch between tubing trips. We got a great seat overlooking the river and got to watch the tubers going down the river. The food, while good, is a mixture, and done not taste like authentic german.

Service was good and sitting on the outdoor patio was very comfortable. Drinks were cold and kept filled. Wings were nothing special. Burgers were dry. The Ruben was dry and tasteless. Ok food.

I was so looking forward to a nice German dish or sandwich.... not here. I gotta the Ruben... I love a good Ruben sandwich.... meat is supposed to be tender and the sandwich is supposed to melt in your mouth. Here it lacked any flavor,...More

No, but even on a waiting list, the wait time is minimal. I would suggest eating outside if the weather is nice.
