Paul’s on the River: Helen, Georgia - Tuesday

Mike had been to this restaurant with his family before and really enjoyed it, so we decided to give it a try. We got a table that overlooked the river, which was beautiful. We split a strawberry daiquiri, then had salads with fresh wheat bread.

I ordered the ribeye steak, and Mike had the all-you-can-eat popcorn shrimp.

The verdict
Mike says that this place wasn’t as good as he remembered. The menu looked very good, but when I asked the waitress if the salmon was fresh, she said that all the meat comes in frozen – even the rainbow trout! They’re on the freakin’ river! So I ended up ordering the steak, which was good, but not really good. Mike seemed to enjoy the shrimp, but you could tell everything came from the freezer. The portions were huge, Mike's all-you-can-eat shrimp turned into holy-cow-I-can't-finish-this-plate shrimp! Overall, next time we come to Helen, I think we’re going to be trying some of that great German food!
