Came here for a late Mother's Day for my Mother-in-Law. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, the food, the deli and the service. Can't believe I didn't know this was here! Will definitely return! Great German Food!

We visited for my brother's birthday with a large crowd and had a great time! There was an entertainer walking around singing and later a live band. The food was wonderful and the beer delicious, plus the staff was very helpful and friendly! Thanks for making it a special night!

Helga's has been a surprise. This is a German style bar, offering a good variety of beers. Different sizes are available (1/4, 1/2, 1 liter, approx 3-4, 7-8 and 13-15 dollars respectively). The tables outdoor makes Helga's the perfect place for a refreshing German beer during a warm sunny day. There is a selection of German food too (starting from... More

My family and I came to your restaurant today for the first time. The food was excellent, however, we ordered half portions of our meal and received full portions. We were unaware -- never having eaten there before -- that the portions we received were full portions. The waitress charged us full price and when we confronted her with the... More

Food and service were both sub-par. Food was bland, and the server was more interested in her cell phone. They were also playing TruTv garbage so loud. Won't go back.

I am not a big fan of German food, but the people were very nice and it was fun atmosphere. We will go back because we have friends that really like German food and this was pretty authentic.

Took the family - we have some German blood somewhere in our ancestry!! We only waited a few minutes for our table. The staff were really friendly and everyone - even the kids - really enjoyed the food. Great beer selection! I'll be back for lunch - I work not too far away. We're planning on trying out Band Night... More
