It's a German Restaurant, friendly folks run this place. Go early or make reservations, it's usually packed. You really should try it out especially during October Fest. Food is awesome you won't be disappointed.

As of March 2014, Helga's Restaurant has closed! There are no plans at this time to re-open it. The owner closed it for personal reasons.

If you are in the Destin, Florida area and crave some good German food it's the place to go. Maybe Helga's isn't the most comfortable restaurant or has the best service, but it's a delightful place to have a decent German meal in Florida's panhandle....More

Probably one of the worst meals I have had in a long time! The spatzle was cold, pasty and tasteless. Could not even cut the schnitzel with a steak knife. I have had better tasting red cabbage from a jar. I had hope that since...More
