The owner and chef greeted us after our meal.
Shows he is confident regarding the cuisine.
Saturday night band was fun for the whole family.
Our dog was welcome as well.

Wonderful food and lots of fun, Hollerbach's Willow Tree Cafe is the best German food in Central Florida. Everything is home made and takes you back to the home country. The Sauerbraten is to die for and the rouladen is just like grandma used to make. My kids love the chicken schnitzel and my wife likes the different sausages. The pretzels are huge, just like the German biergardens and the beer flows freely as the evening wears on. Love the red cabbage and spaetzle. The desserts, if you have room are also worth the calories.

Weekends are busy, so you may have to wait, but there's lots to see and do while you wait. Lunch is excellent and ends at 4pm. The hot entrees start at 4 pm and go until close. Live music starts around 6 or 7 pm and it's straight out of the Hofbrauhaus. Lots of singing and laughing. If you get there early, you probably won't need reservations. If you're coming with a large party, reservations are a must and you should book weeks in advance.

This is a great spot of Bavaria 20 minutes north of Orlando. Well worth the drive. Bring your appetite!

Not even the restaurant face is German, it looks like an old "Woolworth store" from outside, the inside is the regular German decorations, nothing new. But, the big issue is the food, the Wiener schnitzel is good but very small, the kartoffelsalad is very bad (sehr schlecht), the apfelstrudel is the commercial taste one and the worst part is the limited choice for "dunkles beer" or dark beer the taste is worst than the "guines" one, no Hofbrau beer or any other good German Beer. The service was a ruin and the prices disgusting. I thought that this restaurant was better than the "Bavarian Haus" in Mt. Dora but I was wrong. At least we went a second Thursday in Sanford that they celebrate a little feast since 5:00pm. Never returning to this place.
