This was my second trip to Helvetia Tavern. It feels as though one is out in the countryside, but is quite close to Hwy 26. This time it was a warm spring day so we ate outside on the patio which is really pleasant. I ordered the classic burger with bacon (and the bacon is awesome!) and the burger was... More

Enjoyed eating outside on the patio with a friend from London, England. He loved it because of the service and the wide variety of people who enjoy this unique location. Helvetia is known for their BIG hamburgers, plus you get a free burger on your birthday. Good selection of beers.

This is a casual tavern with great burgers, fries, onion rings and beer! What could be better? Their addition of the outdoor patio for dining in the nice weather is wonderful and makes it that much better. Really tasty food, good service and nice ambiance. Well worth the trip.

Helvetia tavern is always busy at meal time and that is because they are known for good burgers (beef, chicken), ham and cheese, fish and chips, and salads. The french fries are just delicious. Just a tip, don't let a full parking lot discourage you. They have a full bar, thus "tavern" in the name and outside dining. However the... More

I've had quite a few burgers from a ton of different places, but this one takes the title of champ. The are very reasonably priced, delicious, and huge...seriously HUGE. The fries are good. It's a bit of a drive, and can feel like you would have already passed it if it's the first time, but follow a GPS, and you'll... More

Wow. I have been coming here since I was a knee high little bullfrog. It doesn't get better than this. Soooo good! Amazing! Great food. Don't listen to the bad reviews. Those people are drunk.

My wife is a grilled ham and cheese connoisseur and this one hit the spot for her. She talked about it for days. There is no waiting area so try and get a table away from the door. Fries are good, burgers are good. Cash only
