I've been going to Helen for 22 years and always make a point to visit here after the festhalle closes. During Oktoberfest, it becomes extremely busy. Yes there is smoke, loud music, slow service and hard to get tables. But it is a bar. Sometimes it is difficult to get served and we've had to go to the bar (2 deep) to get served. It's a place for the young crowd but we still go to hear the music and share the experience with friends. I've have eaten there is the past but not recently. If you are looking for a late night place in Helen, this is it.
