When prohibition went out, Helmers came in and it came to stay, at Washington Street and 11th Streets in the heart of Hoboken, this corner restuarant-bar has survived over 70 years of urban change. Here's a place where nostalgia is what it used to be.
A dignified bar reflects in its mirrors and polished mahogony a tin ceiling, high wooden booths for privacy, figurines, beer steins and a huge Bavarian cuckoo clock that still cuckoos. On a street of modern chain restaurants and pizzerias, Helmers is a find.
Todays clientele will find Helmers' just as it was over 70 years ago, when Helmer family came from Germany, prospered and sold it in the late 1940's to the Lueders from Bremerhaven.
A quality menu that covers more than 100 items from soups, steaks, seafood, sandwiches and of course German Speciaties You'll be sure to find fare to please your palette.
