Great restaurant. The food was very well prepared and the menu was extensive. It is located just off the main street behind Wendy's. They offer a wide selection of German beer in the appropriate sized liter mugs.

Needed a place to eat while passing through Helen. Hotel manager recommended this place across the street. We were not disappointed. Great choices. Not to be missed in a Village with dozens of good German restaurants. Everything home made style.

They have two, and each are about $50. It's totally worth it; they are so, so good. We got the grilled sampler on the far right on the menu and it was fab!
