A fun place to have a German meal. Good Beer, sandwiches, potato pancakes, and goulash. They have outside seating as well as inside seating.

This restaurant is definitely a step into Germany. This is a local favorite! Hollerbach's is not a dress up affair, local people, shorts and t-shirts great fun! The worst thing I can say is come early! Hollerbach's Willow Tree fills up quickly, Dine inside or al fresco, the food is great, the people are friendly, and the beer is flowing.

Great place in a beautiful town, I was born and raised in Austria, hollerbachs is almost as good as my moms cooking. Enjoy all the different wursts, schnitzel and all the various sides. Bittburger bier amongst other selections, German polka music in background, you get the feel like sitting in a Biergarten somewhere in Bavaria or Austria, love ya guys,... More

My family absolutely loves Hollerbach's! If you're in the Orlando area and are looking for some delicious German food, look no further than Hollerbach's. Located in downtown Sanford, Fl, it is the perfect location for a quick lunch or a fun, entertaining dinner. They offer live music at 8pm which features typical German songs and instruments. You must try a... More

I am not a German food afficionado but I haven't had a bad meal here yet. The sandwiches are great, My favorite is The Red Reuben. The sausages and beer are excellent. They even have cute kid's meals that come with gummy bears. Just around the corner is a little German grocery store owned by the same people. I'm not... More

Theo at Hollerbach's carries authentic imported beer that you can't get anywhere else in the US. Beer out of this world! Downtown Sanford is the place to be!

We went with 22 people from our local club. The service was unbelievable and they handled all orders with no problems. The food was absolutely fantastic. We went on a Sunday and there was live music playing outside. Great place.

Best red cabbage I've had in years. Great atmosphere, loads of people talking, mingling and singing. What can I say but authentic and great. Bring your wallet because it will cost you a wee bit, but worth every penny.

We had occasion to have lunch here a few days ago before flying out of Orlando Sanford Airport. We found the restaurant to be charming, the staff to be friendly and efficient and the food to be delicious. Our seven-year-old proclaimed it the, "best lunch ever!" We enjoyed it so much that we have modified an upcoming trip to the... More

Love this restaurant. We have been here many times and drive here from Port Orange just to get an outstanding meal. We have never been disappointed. My favorite is the chicken schnitzel...very good. My husband loves the dark German beer as well! Great place to eat, great staff and authentic German atmosphere. Once you walk through the door, you will... More
