We stopped in Old Bavaria Inn just for light snack, this place was great best beer suggested by our waitress, most original taste to germany. We tried the " Our specialty spatzel" it was great also Pork Schnitzel w/potato pancakes, was so much had to take some home,atmosphere was pure german even to include an accordian playing gentleman dressed in original german outfit, music was great he spends the whole summer in Helen. The beer and music were so good we stayed for about 2 beers.

This was our 2nd time eating here. The variety and quality of the food is fantastic. We recommend the Wurst platter. Since it was off-season, they were only using the 1st floor room. This was more cramped and not as cozy as the 2nd floor dining room. If you're there during high season, ask for the 2nd floor. They have a nice gift shop across the path also.

The food is really pretty authentic, I am living in the states for over 15 years and this is really the best German food I ever had outside Germany.

Without a doubt it is the worst food experience that we have had in years. We drove two hours to have a lovely lunch in Helen. Greasy. Cold. Extremely small portions. Not good food quality. Wait staff told us that the chef is German. That does not matter. It was the worst German food that either of us has ever had. That can be extended to food in Russia and all of the Eastern European states. You have to work at serving food that bad. Expensive and not of any quality. What more can one say? It does not matter what time of the year it is. That was the wait staff's attempting to make us feel guilty about showing up on Thanksgiving weekend. Another reason for not returning...g

We've been going to Helen for 6 years and some of the German Restaurants have either gone out of business, or have changed their menu. The Old Bavaria Inn still serves authentic German food and beer which is a big part of why we go to Helen. It reminds me of when I lived there as a kid. Food in Helen can be way overpriced. Here, it was reasonable and very worth it. The services was also very good - which can be hit or miss in Helen. I was afraid we would have to go out of town for dinners on our next trip, but now that we know about Old Bavaria; we'll be fine :-)
