We visited there for lunch with a party of seven for lunch. We may have been the only party in the restaurant, it felt empty. The menu choices were plain and boring, like choices from the 1970's. The food was very ordinary, the décor dated, and the waitress surly. Don't go.

Have not been to the Hellriegels's for some time. Decided to try it for Thanksgiving. What a disappointment !! This was the worst food we have had in a long time -- turkey had no taste and was mushy, dressing tasted like dried bread dough with some weird tasting spice on top, mashed potatoes did not even taste like potatoes,...

What ever you want, Hellriegel's will try to accommodate. Enjoyed the experience! You even can have a conversation and hear your dinner partners.

It had been over 50 years when I last had dinner at this restaurant. If memory serves me it was dinner before the high school homecoming dance. It looked as though nothing had changed in that half century. Pictures and other items around the restaurant took pride in the past but they really should do something about getting in touch...

If I were you and I'm not, I would not spend a dime there, look at the bottles being poured, see something floating at the bottom, yeah you know what that is😱 the food is way over priced, must use the business model of triple or quadruple pricing, I can spend my money more wisely, like the owner who probably...

We stopped here recently on a nostalgia trip. The place used to be recommended to us -- 50 years ago. It's much the same! -- and the same clientele seems to be there. When we were there, they had a local bar crowd, but few diners. Now, our meals,(we got the daily spe1cial) were not bad (although bland) and were... More

We really enjoyed this place a few years ago when we were passing through the area. We ordered the special add-on that included soup and salad, dessert, and fried onions or mushrooms. The soups were hot and tasty, the salads were good sized, and the entrees arrived a few minutes after the soup and salad. My wife's parm crusted steak... More

Have eaten here many times over 40 years, but sadly yesterday was probably the last time. Three of us ordered the Easter buffet for $28.95 and were extremely disappointed. Green beans, scalloped potatoes, penne pasta, roast beef (Not prime rib), and ham (which could have come from a can), and choice of two desserts.....that was it! No salads or appetizers....and...
