We returned to Helen's for dinner last Saturday and had a burger with side salad and Arctic char with corn and fingerling potatoes and squash. Both were good choices, and we enjoyed them very much. No room for dessert !

Sunday brunch we tried shrimp & grits, pork belly eggs Benedict with curry potatoes, both scrumptious. Entire menu looked delicious. Just don’t go if you’re in a hurry. Got there 10:30 and were quickly seated, but still took 40+ min for our food to arrive.

Had not been there in a while and had good anticipation, but was disappointed. Waitress tried to rush our order. It was a price fixe menu that night with three courses and we wanted to take our time and order one course at a time....More

Local neighborhood restaurant/bar was very festively decorated, and it was a chilly evening. So, we opted for burgers. Everything was yummy, as usual, and the place was crowded. I guess you would say Helen's reputation keeps us coming back!

We had a very nice dining experience here on a quiet weeknight. The friendly staff was attentive without being intrusive. Our food choices were the rockfish and hanger steak. Both were very tasty. Plan to have a leisurely meal here; it is not fast food....More
