Hollerbach's is a great fun place to eat authentic German food and drink. It is lively often with live band and boisterous toasts. They are the anchor to downtown Sanford and if you have not gone yet - GO!!

Great atmosphere. Authentic German food. Plenty of gluten free choices and the gluten free bread is the best we have ever had anywhere.

Hit this place ever time we use Autotrain. They drop us off for some time downtown in the cutest little town. The restaurant is so good, friendly staff, great view and just the cutest town. We usually eat so much, we have to walk after to get back to feeling normal. Such a great location.

This is the most authentic German restaurant that I have ever been to outside to Germany! The food is fantastic ; the desserts are superior! Check to see if they are having an umpa band playing. The food is authentic and made by a chef who is from Germany! You will not be disappointed!
