Great food and great beer! We stopped in for lunch on our way to Orlando. The food was superb and the beer was delicious. We will definitely be stopping back next time we are in the area.

This is a one of a kind restaurant happy place. Even if you don't like German food you'll love the entertainment. The In House band plays Thursday thru Sunday starting at 6. Go during those times and you won't be disappointed. Any of the food I've had there (and I have been here 12 times or more) has been authentic... More

We enjoyed 2 wonderful meals at Hollerbach's Café. Great beer selection, wonderful, friendly staff and deeelicious food! Don't pass up the opportunity to have a meal there. The live music on Thursday nights is fantastic! What a great atmosphere!

Hollerbach's Willow Tree Cafe is a delightful restaurant that serves really good food. It is primarily German, but there are some items that are more Central European than exclusively German. It is located in a nice area Sanford in the Historic Area. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a difference from the standard American fare.

Our friends had been telling us about this German restaurant in Sanford and we decided to take a ride with them to try it. It was well worth the 2 hour ride! Coming from NYC we have tried many excellent German restaurants and this one was right up there with them! Food was great, from start to finish! Sauerbraten was... More

Every time we vacation in Florida, we make the 1 hour trip north to Sanford to have dinner here. We usually leave with a stack of take home boxes because the portions are generous. A large selection of German beers plus wines. We always start off with the gigantic Bavarian pretzel accompanied by sweet mustard and a savory cheese spread... More

No matter when I come here I always have an enjoyable time. Just stopped in for a causal Sunday brunch day. The staff is very personable and all seem to enjoy where they work. The food is superb as always.

I have been twice. Both times I had a blast! It is a wonderful family restaurant. You can't NOT be happy and eat here. We made reservations well in advance for a large party, and they were so accommodating. Everyone had a great time and everyone loved their food. It is a one of a kind place. A real gem.
