We had dinner here last night. We were not too hungry so we decided to split the meal. We had the Rahm Schnitzel with Fried potatoes and grilled tomatoes with cheese. We also had the salad which comes with the meal and an order of the apple strudel for desert. The portions were large and the kitchen split the meal... More

We visited Helga's with a group of 5. Service was very helpful and caring. Our waitress was always there with refills or to answer questions. The food came in a timely manner and arrived all at once. Each of us ordered something different and no one was displeased with their choice. The dishes where delicious. I would say that it... More

If you love German food, this is the place for you. I'm not sure what I love more the schnitzel or the potato pancakes. So yummy

Potato pancakes and schnitzel will rivet your tastebuds back to Grandma's dinner table. Go for Happy Hour (4:30-6:00) pretzels are $1. We arrived right at 6:00 and missed happy hour prices. Menu changes with the season, but I think with service this welcoming, the chef would easily make culinary wishes come true. Friendly service, happy people, delicious and huge selection... More

I've been visiting Helga's for several years and have never been disappointed. The service is stellar and the food and beer are wonderful. My husband and I sat out in the beer garden today and enjoyed a few beers and pretzels. Our waitress was very helpful and made us feel welcome, as was the hostess who greeted us. I love... More

Jaeger Schnitzel was amazing and so was the apple strudel! Service was great, wine was good and we didn't have to wait on a table!

Welcoming environment, with good service. Beer was great, can't really go wrong with Paulaner. Friends had some sort of sausage/bratwurst plate and were very happy with it. Hubby and I both had a Schnitzel with Spaetzel and Red Cabbage. I had a cucumber salad that was good, almost too salty. The Schnitzel was okay, rather dried out and not much... More

Good brats, pork tenderloin, beer, cake & schnitzel. But if you don't like German food, difficult to find anything to eat, other than the desserts!

AUTHENTISCH, LECKER, GEMÜTLICH! The food here is authentic and very tasty! A few of the employees speak German, but they're all very friendly and helpful. Daily specials add to the already plentiful variety of offerings here. Full bar if you want drinks, but they have Spezi - a classic German favorite (cola and orange soda mixed), so that's my choice!... More

We stopped by due to the relative rarity of finding good German restaurants. I had the pork jager schnitzel with goulash, spatzle and gravy and red cabbage. Did not really care for the red cabbage, but the meat, spatzle, and goulash soup were good. My husband had the bratwurst plate and both types tasted bland or smelled very strange, over... More
