I find myself in this neck of the woods and hungry about every 4-6 weeks. Great service and food served hot off the very busy grill. Cold beer to match and that’s a winning combination in my book. Bring cash because they don’t take cards....More

Sat on patio for a Saturday lunch. Pleasant view with good food and good service. Table staff worked together to serve all of the tables on the patio. It was pleasant to watch them work to serve the needs of all customers. Especially liked the...More

The location is in a very beautiful area and it has indoor and outdoor seating. The food is great , I love the burgers and home made fries and onion rings. It still has the old tavern feel with the hundreds of hats tacked to...More

Went here based on such high reviews. It was ok. I had the halibut fish and chips, think it was previously frozen, staff seemed overly rushed and not overly friendly. Made me feel like I had to hurry and order and we had just gotten...More

Known for its burgers, i find the burgers only marginal, nothing to go out of the way for. Meat is small and no special condiments. View is good, but Five Guys is much much better.

First of all, they only take cash, so come prepared. Second of all they serve big, delicious, gorpy burgers! Yum, groan, yum! And fries, as if you need them, but yeah, fries. Beer is tavern fare, but hey, gorpy burgers! Singles, doubles, everything!

Been eating there for years. Same owners forever so pretty consistent in quality. Best know for their burgers, which are good could use a bit bigger patties. They do have a large burger (size of a dinner plate) but you better be hungry its humongous...More

When you come here, sit outside. It’s a really pleasant atmosphere that doesn’t quite make up for food from the McDonald’s dollar menu. And bring cash. They have an atm machine with a fee unless you still carry cash like it’s 1970. Tried the “famous...More

I went to the Helvetia Tavern today and there were two groups that had dogs with them in the outside patio area. One happened to be a big Bernice Mtn dog.
