Talk about a hidden gem in upstate New York. The Helm is a fun place for all to enjoy good food, beer and cocktails. There's even a bar for those who want to watch their desired team whilst enjoying a local craft beer. Nothing to write home about on decor but it's a quaint dining room with great lighting and partial view of Greenwood Lake. Specials are always written up during the week and their brunch is definitely one of a kind. The portions are definitely hefty but can be enjoyed by all - it's more fun to go with more than just two people so you can try all their foods. Enjoy their poutine with truffle or Cajun poutine, and their smoked wings which you can get with any of four flavours and they offer They smoke their own meat - in the parking lot! The cocktails are handcrafted and their selection of local beers are many to choose from. Go for the obnoxious Chicken and Waffles - deep fried chicken, on top of a chorizo patty, which is all on top of a waffle - and to top that off, a fried egg! Insane? We should hope so! It's a fantastic spot to dine, so be sure to spend some time at The Helm!
Food: Cajun Poutine, Truffle Poutine, Smoked Chicken Wings, Champagne Margarita Cocktail, Corn Biscuits with Chorizo Patties, Chicken and Waffles - Deep fried chicken on a crispy waffle, bacon, chorizo patty, and a fried egg with maple syrup and hot sauce to top it off!
