The place isn't fancy, but the food is amazing! There is a bar area, live music some nights, and an outdoor patio. My family loved the big pretzel appetizer and all of our entrees. Large portions, too.

Service was excellent! We ate German Food and bartender's recommendations were delicious. Lots of good German music and very friendly staff. Atmosphere was upbeat and will return again. The Food, German beer and music were our favorites.

We have only ever dined outside and try to arrive by 5:30pm so that by the time the music starts at 7 we are relaxing with our last adult beverage and can enjoy the music and people watch. The food is good, we've tried numerous items, with potato pancakes always being one of the constant items we order. It's ALWAYS... More

My husband and I recently went to Hollerbach's with family and friends. We were a party of eight and our waiter was excellent. We ordered Sauerbraten, Jägerschnitzel, and Schweineschnitzel with various sides such as potato pancakes and Spätzle. Everything was delicious. We finished our evening with shots of Williams Birne. It was a great experience!

Nice restaurant. Location good, but the service isn't all that great. Unattentive. Waited over half hour to be served. Onced served food was good, but messed up on order. Server never came to table until the end, to bring check. Also, no music.

I love this place! But... service was terrible tonight. I know we had a party of 28 but we have been here 3-5 times before with that many people so there is no excuse because we always had great service.

Friday night is always a fun night at the Willow Tree. Great entertainment, German food, and beer. What more would you want. Not the place for a quiet romantic dinner. A lot of Gemutlichkeit.

We've been here twice and both times the food was authentic and prepared excellent. It tends to get very busy with a long wait so plan ahead. The service was good and the bartenders were quick. We also did "the Boot" and had a great time.

As usual lunch was excellent. I have been coming here since it opened. I have only had to send one order back to the kitchen. It was immediately remade and the manager delivered it to my table. Then Leo came out and apologized.
