Helvetia is a tiny mountain town at least an hour from anywhere even mildly substantial. So many of these towns have little to offer outsiders--they are simply a cluster of homes, mostly unoccupied, at an intersection. Hevetia is different, they have the Hutte! The Hutte is an old home turned family restaurant where Swiss staples, the food the original settlers... More

I am rating this as a 5 because of the nature of this restaurant. This is a small town restaurant with old world appeal. It is not a high end fancy place with all the trimmings and fancy food. Just a great place to stop as is the rest of the town. Inside it is a time capsule of almost... More

Being in our sixties, this restaurant reminded us of our childhood days at grandma’s house. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. I wish we would have taken the time to visit some of the shops on the property.

Honestly some of the best food I've eaten. Reminded me of my mother-in-laws meals, just good home cooking. And the bread, I can't say enough! The restaurant itself is an old home and is furnished as such which gives a feeling of complete comfort. It is a beautiful drive getting there and so lovely once you arrive. Absolutely worth going...

After I read in my West Virginia: Off the Beaten Path guidebook that there was a Swiss settlement in the remote West Virginia mountains, I knew I had to go, because that is just my kind of thing. Therefore, as we were approaching from the south, I braved 16 miles on a dirt road (yes, dirt -- not even any... More

The Hutte is a pleasant journey steeped in history and culture. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and efficient. I eat here every time I am in the area and have never had a bad experience. My only problem is figuring out what to order on the menu.
