Average in every way. A good place to take the family for a quick wiener and a beer but majorly lacking in authenticity. Sort of "fake German" but cute enough.

We came here several times during a recent stay to grab a drink and relax. It's an excellent location in the center of town. The bartenders are super friendly and even though they can get overwhelmed with a crowd of customers at times, we always had good service. Good drink selection, reasonable prices!

I came upon this place strolling around Helen around 8:00 at night. It was the busiest place around. Sitting at the bar everyone was friendly and the bartender made a good recommendation "The Cheese Bratwurst" with german potatoes that where amazing and sauerkraut. Overall a decent place to spend the evening.

We stopped by on a Sunday in October, while Oktoberfest was going on. It was a very busy afternoon, with traffic moving slowly on Main Street and people, people everywhere. Perfect setting for an outdoor concert, which is why we stopped at this Bier Garten. There was a one man band playing, the beer was flowing, and people were having... More

The beer was served in a,plastic cup and the pretzel was served with a beer/ cheese dipping sauce, it was quite good. If your looking for a quick stop for a snack and beverage or to watch the people walk by... More

This location has long been the main hangout on Main Street for beer drinkers. You can do people watching or hang out and enjoy drinks with friends.
