We stopped in for a snack and drinks. Food was just ok, but the service was horrible. The view overlooking the river was nice, and we actually would have spent more time here if the service was better.

It was a lightly rainy day in Helen but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying a nice time. Troll Tavern was recommended to us and even though it was busy, the food was fantastic and the server was prompt, knowledgeable and efficient. We had the Ruben, which I must say was the best I'd ever had...good size portion... More

Our family enjoyed bratwurst, knockwurst, burgers and potato salad outside by the water. The boys crossed the water on the rocks and we bought the souvenir mugs that we'll enjoy for a long time. Can't say enough about Helen, GA!

This is a must do when in Helen!!! It sits right on the creek, under the bridge, right in the middle of Helen!!! Outside seating is wonderful--weather permitting of course!!! The food is also great!!! You must try the Grilled Reuben with the German potato salad!!! It is the BEST I've EVER had!!!

The restaurant is in a very nice location, right on the river. They have outdoor seating, however, when we visited, it was too cold. In looking at the menu it seems like everything is $12. The beer cheese soup is excellent, as well as the Philly cheese steak sandwich, however, the Tavern Hamburger was average. The hamburger had no taste... More
