We wanted to eat a good light lunch and found this place behind the Wendy’s. The shrimp scampi was very good. They have a good selection of German food and beer.

We ate here on our 1st day in Helen GA. I had the Goulash and my husband had the Schnitzel and both were very good. Will be returning on our next visit to Helen GA.

Me and wife had probably one of the best meals ever at the Bodensee restaurant. The food quality was absolutely amazing. The service was five star. The portions are very generous. We will definitely make sure to visit every time we stop in Helen.

They have two, and each are about $50. It's totally worth it; they are so, so good. We got the grilled sampler on the far right on the menu and it was fab!
