I am a fan of Troll Tavern myself. Wurst and red cabbage is what I usually get. I spent 2 years in Germany and ate lots of German food. The food in Helen is a reasonable facsimile at best but still tasty.

Troll Tavern is a family favorite. I like the Nacacoochee Tavern, decent pizza and beer and right across from our friends at the Unicoi shop. Hoffer's for breakfast. Yonah burger headed out is usally a tasty after a day of fishin. Bout it.

Thumbs up Poor Helen ...........

Poor Helen. Everyone likes to poke fun at her including myself! But. Back when there was a little mountain town where all the work had gone elsewhere and the whole town was on it's way to being a wide spot in the road where an old town used to be. But this little town hitched up their lederhosen, pulled their Tryolian hats down snug and went to work to recreate themselves as "an alpine village". And it worked! So a tip of my funny hat with the shaving brush to the good people of Helen who did not give up and run. There are a lot of communities who could learn a great deal from their experience.

Many thanks for the Bodensee rec! Two years in Germany...it took me half a year to discover that German food was not all "grease and potatoes!"

There was a good restaurant in an allee downtown, but they closed their doors.

Got back last night from a quick fun trip to the redneck riveria of North GA. Stayed at Unicoi in a room with a loft, kids gave it an A+ as they had a "play room/fort". Dinner at Nacoocheee tavern for some tasty pizza, lunch at Troll laughing at tubers, breakfast at Cimmi's Cafe (good biscuits), dinner at Old Bavaria Inn (cheesy but the kids loved the accordian player). Hiked Anna Ruby, did Babyland General (where they are freakin printing $$$$), zip lined at Cool River, smores by the fire, and just sat in rocking chairs stairing at them mountains. Didn't even take a rod so as to enjoy time with the family. Helen is good for fishing but also just some good old family time, cheesy town or not.

Your "non-fish report" made me smile; way to go Sean! I did the same thing down in Melbourne Beach last. No fishing at all. We spent the week sitting on the beach reading trashy crime novels and drinking some great mojito's.

PS: hard to believe I can tie my recent trip to the beach with this German restaurant thread, but there is a serious 5 star German restaurant in Melbourne Beach called Coconut Cove. We always eat there when we vacation down that way.

Not sure if it's considered German, but there is a helluva bakery on the upstream side of Helen. It's very much not uncommon for me to stop there and get an apple fritter on the ride to the office in the mornings...

And, no, I don't know the owners. I just really like that restaurant.
Oh man...Generally stray away from the schnitzel and sausage and go right in for the pig knuckle. Chase it down with some strudel then go across for an espresso at Higher coffee so I don't keel over while checking out the glockenspiels.

My favorite Helen dining experience was my most recent one. Go in for a quick bite. Looking for pizza or dogs, whatever just want it to be fast with a beer.
Order 3 club sandwiches for 3 guys and grab a beer to wait. The salty bastard waiting the place was wearing a penn reels redfish shirt from about 1995. Around beer 3 we had his back story figured out. He was on a motorcycle trip up "north" as Floridians do, got in a disagreement with someone and ended up on parole in white county hence his disdain for everyday life in the area. Around beer 4 we get our "quick, easy to prepare food" and I was married soon enough after. If beer is proof god loves us, helen is proof that sometimes even god has to use the restroom
