I think Troll has some of the best seating plans in Helen. It is by the water, while most others are in the main street, which is also great. I personally aways have a great time there.

The location is lovely, the food is average. If you want views and excellent food go across the river to International.

Food served here is definitely authentic German food. We sat outside right along the river and had a beautiful view and could hear and see the tubers going by.

Basic pub fare with a German twist. We have eaten here a couple of times when in the area. Good service. Good selection of beer. In warm weather it is nice to eat outside. They do need more than one toilet for the women's room.

No, but even on a waiting list, the wait time is minimal. I would suggest eating outside if the weather is nice.
