Aside from it being 58 degrees and sitting outside which was our choice, this place is awesome! The beers are great the Rubens are great the Mushroom Swiss hamburger is unbelievable and the service is very very good too!!! Stop by and have a 32oz brew!!!!

I had a bad dinner here. The food was gross, they were out of the beer I ordered, there was a 20 minute wait for the restrooms, the server did his best but the food & drinks were very slow to come out. I would not eat here again.

Wife and I came in for lunch. We were just in the mood for a sandwich or something. We ended up splitting a mufaletta and some onion rings. She had a glass of wine and I had a couple of beers. Waiter was really great. Drinks came out almost immediately, and he recommended the sandwich, and let us know that... More

Cordon Bleu was awful. Not even close to Germany's Cordon Bleu. Need a German chef to prepare this dish. Too much cabbage stuff (sauerkraut and purple cabbage).

One of best burgers that I have ever eaten. Nice staff and overlooks the river. Expensive, but worth it.

My husband and I walked through the town shops and looked for a restaurant to eat in at dinner time. Several of the higher rated trip advisor restaurants only serve food at breakfast or lunch or are an actual store/deli. We tried the Troll Tavern at the bridge and we are glad that we did. The waiter was a nice... More

It fits with the whole Helen, Ga theme and the outdoor seating is scenic and quite enjoyable. The food was decent, My burger was bland and honestly not great, the onion rings and loaded fries were pretty awesome.Was pricey for the food quality but I wouldn't say I was disappointed.

Waiter, Cyprus, was great! Food was OK. First time here and there was no wait although the street was packed with tourists.

The good: Friendly, but slow, service. Scenic, outdoor seating. The bad: Mediocre food. The nastiest bathrooms you've ever seen in the US. I mean so nasty that you can't enjoy your food because you know that the staff have used the bathrooms and then returned to preparing and/or serving your food. E. coli nastiness. The men's room was so gross... More
