Helga’s was created in 1989 as a mother-daughter venture with a small, four-table restaurant. After spending their childhood in Germany, siblings Herbert and Helga have continued the tradition of their mother, Berta. Today, Helga's has expanded but has not departed from its humble beginnings, gathering a large loyal following of wonderful customers. Helga, Herbert and family maintain a warm and friendly environment where you can sit down to an authentic and delicious home-style German meal with family and friends.

In the true spirit of a family-owned restaurant, Helga and Herbert are directly involved in ensuring the satisfaction of each and every one of their customers. Please do not hesitate to ask for either Helga or Herbert or approach them when you see them in the restaurant. They are happy to offer menu or deli suggestions, or even take a moment to just stop by and chat with you in German or English.

Welcome and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Food was very good. Nice beer selection. Once Covid quiet passes, I imagine this place would be quite loud.

My first time visiting Helga's and I had such a great dining experience. Delicious food and friendly service - and the attached deli/gift shop was fun while we waited for our table.

I have had lunches as well as a dinner previously at this great restaurant. I have always loved the food and ambiance as well as the service. We invited two other couples who had never been there this last Saturday and everyone loved the restaurant and food!

I liked the outdoor seating, there are umbrellas and a tree for sun protection. Food is good, we had a pretzel and 3 different schnitzel, we took leftovers home, beers are good, a decent variety of German beers.

Service was terrible!!! Took 15 min to get our salad after ordering and went downhill from there!! There were 3 tables of 4 and 4 servers there was absolutely no excuse that server was too busy to check on us or serve food in a timely manner. Couldn’t cut the beef let alone chew it! Will never come back or recommend Helga’s to anyone!!

We enjoyed everything about this place. The service was great and so was the food. It is authentic German food if you are missing a bit of "home" cooking or just exploring trying other dishes. Great Germany beer selection and various specials throughout the week. There is a nice outdoor dining area as well. Guten appetit!

Loved our meal at Helga’s!
The pretzel and cheese appetizer was spot on, the rouladen was perfect. Tender and full of flavor. My wife loved her Rahm schnitzel. The red cabbage was so good - as good as I remembered it!

It was good. The food was not entirely authentic, although it was in German style, but it was delicious. The pretzels and schnitzel were excellent (those were like Germany). And the ambiance was a little off due to Covid and social distancing right now, but the staff was friendly and attentive, and it was very enjoyable.

The service and food were awesome. They also made sure you felt safe during a pandemic. All staff were wearing masks. They even had cute little set up for the restrooms. I have lived in Germany for 13 years so I am very picky about choosing a German restaurant but Helga's is the place if you want German food. Their potato soup is just delicious. So is the rest of the food. We will definitely be back!

I've been hooked on Helga's food since 1990. The growth of this restaurant has been heartwarming. Tonight's appetizer was a welcome start to dinner. I chose the always satisfying jaeger schnitzel and was completely satisfied - good memories.

Service was very friendly and helpful. Ambiance was good, very Bavarian. Food was fine. I would not order the tomato or kroketten (sp?) side dishes again and the rouladen was ok. I would go back and try some of their other dishes. It was an expensive lunch given the quality of the food.
