    Beef O Brady's in Helena has a great view of the Cahaba River Waterfall. You also will not miss that football game because they will have multiple TVs around the restaurant with all sports playing. It is a great place to hang out with friends and the food is good too. They have a variety of hamburgers to seafood. But the wings are great so give them a try on a Saturday afternoon.

    Helena, AL
    Helena, located in North Shelby County, is synonymous with rapid but controlled growth. In the last twenty years Helena has experienced rapid and steady growth and is now recognized as a prime location for new opportunity and continued development. Helena has grown into a city that offers a lot of the conveniences of larger cities yet still maintains its family-oriented atmosphere.
    Helena also works hard to ensure that opportunities for new residential, commercial and educational growth are extended and enhanced.
  • Named the 13th "Best Place to Raise Your Kids" by Business Week in 2007, the growing suburb of Helena is approximately 20 miles from downtown Birmingham. In 2010, Helena's population was just under 17,000 people. It's a popular city for homebuyers of all ages. Named in the "Top 100 Best Places to Live" by Money Magazine in 2007, you'll find most home prices range between $125,000 and $500,000 with the average home selling for $205,000 in 2015. We bought our first house in Helena, within walking distance of Joe Tucker Park. Old Town Helena shopping, Sundown Cinemas at the Old Amphitheater each summer, and the annual Buck Creek Festival are just a few reasons to consider Helena when making a home purchase.

  • The town of Cove is what the postal records of mid 1800s called what we know of as Helena today. In 1856 the name changed to Hillsboro shortly before it was burned to the ground during the Civil war. . Then during the reconstruction years the railroad brought the area back to life. Helena Station was named after the daughter, Helen Lee, of the engineer that was sent to survey the land for the station. The town had its times of difficulty during the early 1900s but the citizens of this small town held it together. That bond is what gives it the charm it has today.

    Depot Deli is located in downtown Old Helena, just after you cross the tracks. They make the best hamburger on this side of town. All of the food is freshly cooked and the service is always great. A great eatery place you must visit. You will not be sorry!

    If you are like me you get this question all the time. We all stay on the go, and if you are looking for an easy answer, just stop by Home Plate Cooking in Helena. I have used them for myself as a quick meal for my family and have gotten the main dish and added some sides. I have also gotten this to take to someone that has been sick and has not had time or felt like making a meal. Also, for family that has just moved and can not find their pots and pans it is a wonderful and easy way to say thanks!

    Hillsboro Trail is a beautiful, asphalt-paved, 12 foot wide walking trail that begins in the Hillsboro Appleford subdivision on Highway 52. Originally part of the Louisville & Nashville (L&N) Rail Line, the land became viable for a trial once the mines shut down and the rails were removed. The trail provides a 1.9 mile walk through a scenic forest, while safely taking you under Highway 52 and Hillsboro Parkway. It comes to an end on the parkway where Helena Middle and Helena High Schools meet. It's a wonderful experience!

    I have lived in Helena for the past nine years and love calling it home! You can enjoy shopping, eating or playing in the park in the quaint historic downtown area. Helena has expanded to include new businesses, wonderful homes, great schools and still maintain that "small town southern" atmosphere. A jewel of a location that is convenient to interstate, malls, medical and entertainment. Come join me for a unique experience!

  • Frankie’s Market Café is a local favorite in the lovely town of Helena, Alabama. As you walk in the entrance, to the left you will find the market, boasting quality produce for sale, some of which are locally grown or organic options as well. To the right is where you will find the buffet style café, featuring some of the finest home cooking you’ll ever find! Their options include a variety of meat and veggie choices, along with desert choices such as cobbler, pies or banana pudding. Typically, a person can spend less than $10 per meal. My family and I look forward to having our “Frankie’s Fix” and we are regulars to the wonderful staff at Frankie’s. You will enjoy the pleasant atmosphere sitting inside or on nice, sunny days, you can enjoy eating outside as well. Be sure to try their famous squash casserole and be sure to say “Hi” to Frankie and listen to his amazing, life story. Not only does Frankie’s have amazing food, it grounds you and reminds you what’s really important in life – love, family and friendship. Thanks Frankie for providing such a place to enjoy!
