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

Great food! Moderate prices. Good service. Excellent beer selection. German band on select nights. Definitely worth a visit if you get the chance.

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

We had dinner for V-day. The place is just like being in Germany. Ordered the Roulade with red cabbage and spätzle and Jäger Schnitzel with sauerkraut and kroketten. All were delicious and our server Megan was terrific. An attached deli is the place to pick up hard to find German foods.

If you are hungry and looking for good German food, go to Helga's. This restaurant is a hidden gem. The staff is always pleasant and helpful to those who aren't acquainted with the German cuisine. The also have a bakery/deli where you can get your favorite desserts and condiments to take home and enjoy.
