They were delicious. So I asked the waitress if the Ruben sandwich was included in the soup and 1/2 sandwich deal and her reply was... More

Been here many, many times, hope to come back many, many more times. Love the Pasta with ham, wish I had the recipe, and the Potato Pancakes are to die for. Never got bad food here and I have been eating German food for 70 years. Would never dream of going to Helen and not stopping here, in fact, we... More

Not good beer warm, food over priced, place not really customer friendly. Pretzel was chewy and cheese dip was clumpy

Service was a bit slow, and food was bland and greasy. There were a couple items that were ok, but overall not impressed.

We decided to give a little local place some business on a Monday early evening in December. The place was empty and we were seated immediately. My husband chose a German beer from their menu but....

Walked in with seven very demanding older folks. Some had never had German food. Our server, Jennifer was so nice and patient it is ULTRA noteworthy. She made recommendations as needed and was attentive throughout our meal. From the restaurant.....our food was outstanding. Tasteful and nicely presented and authentic as advertised. I highly recommend and proudly give it five stars.

Giant Munich pretzels, German draft beers, veal sausages, and awesome atmosphere make it a great place to eat, best in Helen! The desserts are awesome and staff is very friendly. We always end up at the Old B at least once during our visit!

Good identically German food and good beer. Nice selection of German recipes. Their cold cut plate and potato soup was very good.
