Authentic German food and beer. The several selections we had all were excellent. On the weekends rolls are especially good. One does expect to pay more due to the location, but even with that in mind restaurant seemed pricey.

Until the Pilsner Hauz opened Helmer's was only place in town for an authentic German dinner. Had a fire a few years ago and was restored. Nice bar and few outdoor seats. Love the wurst and sauerbraten.

Our family had one of the best meals EVER at Helmer's! From the pretzel bread to the AMAZING, sweet bacon-wrapped scallop appetizer, to the delicious sauerbraten, red cabbage, potato dumpling and Spätzle, everything was authentic, satisfying and definitely worth the trip! The beer list would...More
