Description: Herzlich Willkommen! Christina, Linda and I are delighted to welcome you to Hollerbach's - the place where Gemütlichkeit happens in the Historic District of downtown Sanford, Florida. Linda and I first started thinking of opening our own restaurant in 1981 while we were working together at a German restaurant in Orlando; after two decades of hard work and planning, the Willow Tree dream became reality on August 1, 2001 with just seven employees. Since then, we’ve continually expanded the restaurant, added two new businesses, and grown our staff to over 90 employees. It’s hard to believe we've been here over 16 years! Our top priority has always been and will remain to provide our guests with an authentic, high-quality, memorable experience at our Willow Tree Café German restaurant, Magnolia Square Market true German deli, and Outfitters costume and jewelry shop. We encourage you to enjoy our hospitality, and we welcome you into our family. - Theo

We’ve been here many times but I don’t think I’ve reviewed the place. Great German food. If possible, try to call ahead for a reservation near the band so you can better enjoy the entertainment. Great selection of beers and they also have a full bar. We were last here on a Friday night and downtown Sanford is starting to resemble a small version of Ybor City. Great way to spend an evening. We love it.
Enjoy.

This was by far the best meal I had this trip to Florida or I think anytime wow what a great meal. I got the paprika schnitzel with spatzle and braised red cabbage. The schnitzel was amazing juice bit over cooked with that delicious paprika and sauted pepper sauce with so much flavour could put that on almost anything and make it great. The braised cabbage was a little sweet and sour and an amazing compliment to the schnitzel a long with the cheesy spatzle to help mop up the paprika sauce all around amazing.

Four of us were "out on the town" - stopped in for a brew and a bite to eat. Attentive wait staff, excellent selection and food quality, and even though we were there until close - we did not feel unwelcome or hurried out the door. Gemütlichkeit and Southern hospitality - a winning combination!
