Troll Tavern is located in the middle of Helen right next to the river. It was a very popular place. We ate there twice on our visit to Helen. The first time we sat inside and ordered German food. Very good. The second time we sat outside next to the river. Very pleasant. This is a very good place to... More

This place is better known for their view and ambience. Unfortunately the hostess was very nasty so maybe they should just give her a new position seeing as she's the first impression we got of the restaurant. The lady's bathroom had no toilet paper, no soap, and it was dirty. This place should be maintained better, especially if this is... More

We stopped in for a snack and drinks. Food was just ok, but the service was horrible. The view overlooking the river was nice, and we actually would have spent more time here if the service was better.

It was a lightly rainy day in Helen but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying a nice time. Troll Tavern was recommended to us and even though it was busy, the food was fantastic and the server was prompt, knowledgeable and efficient. We had the Ruben, which I must say was the best I'd ever had...good size portion... More

They have no idea what German Potato salad is, it comes with the bratwurst, that is what I was told. We both had the lunch but the only edible item on the plate was the sauerkraut. The "potato salad", was Irish mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives, that's what it tasted like to us. I told the server who... More
