We found this place on our GF around me APP

We didn't know much about the area and this Hollerback's was very highly rated on our APP. They brought me some Gluten Free bread (called it a basket, but it was really just a small loaf on a plate.) I had some left over so it wasn't tiny, but it wasn't the same size as a full loaf in the... read more

Absolutely terrible service. Rude greeters and hostesses. This place very clearly does NOT care about treating customers well. Kept us waiting for almost 45 minutes to even sit down. It's as if they know people will keep coming no matter what they do or how terribly they treat people. Germany in EPCOT is a far better experience. At least there... More

This very lively, busy cafe/restaurant offers a very large assortment of authentic German as well as American options...Warm bread with butter was served as soon as we were seated... we ordered the mashed potatoes with apple to share, one salad, two sandwiches and the shrimp bisque. All of our food was fresh and excellent. The service was very good &... More

After spending time in Germany, my son wanted to celebrate his birthday at Hollerbach's. We went on a Thursday not expecting a crowd, but it they were celebrating Fashing, so we had a fun crowd all dressed up and ready to party.We had a blast watching the group sing and dance. The food was very good and the wait staff... More

We came last year for the first time and were looking forward to this year's visit. No changes, just really good German cuisine. It was very busy, but we were seated quickly outside. There were heaters since it was cool and rainy so they kept us comfortable. We had the Eisbein and a chicken schnitzel accompanied by potatoes (heaven and... More

Awesome German beers on tap, awesome staff, awesome entertainment on weekends, outdoor patio, great place for any occasion. Never a big fan of German food so I can’t really give a great critique on the food but all around good place for a great night out.

Having gone several times now, I think I'm indifferent to the appeal of this restaurant. Most recently a group of 14 of us called ahead and then physically put our name in at 4:30 - and we didn't get seated until around 7:30. Food was alright, pretzels were delicious, but service was very slow for having waited for so long... More

There is always a lot of energy and excitement. The music was a lot of fun. The German Chocalate cake was excellent.

Last Saturday night 7 of us had a delightful dinner at Hollerbach's Willow Tree restaurant in Sanford. The food was fabulous and the music made for a very festive evening.

Bavarian, home cooked food and it is a real treat! This visit the 4 of us had the sauerbraten with red cabbage and German egg noodles with thick brown gravy. The taste was outrageously delish as always. The meat was a bit overcooked but extremely tender. One piece band was great, the music adds to the festive and authentic experience!... More
