This is the place to be when you visit Helen Ga. Great outdoor bar being manned by Mel and Chris. They are the best and keep the drinks coming. Always live music on the weekend. Great atmosphere that caters to Adults and Kids.

We didn't eat so I cannot comment on the food, but I will give three cheers to the location, the bartender, and the owner. Really enjoyed sitting and chatting on a lazy Friday afternoon. People watching - Yes, Cold beer - Yes, Fast Service - Yes. What more could you want for Helen, GA.

We had 2 beers each and they are the good German kind! Good choices, fair portions and not cheap. But for German bier I don't mind paying for this weekend.

Their pretzel is delicious. add to that a Warsteiners Dunkel and yum. Great beer cheese came with the pretzel and was not an extra like other restaurants in the area.

We took a break from walking around Helen for a drink and a snack. Hubby had a beer and I had a Margarita. Both were good. We also enjoyed a big pretzel with beer cheese. Food was great and so was the service.

Great central Helen location and very friendly staff and bartenders. Our party of 13 stopped here for a mid-day beer and the staff was super cool. Great people watching on the patio and lots of people with dogs on leash. We will be back.
