Best German place in Central Florida hands down. Great atmosphere, good service, reasonable prices on the food. They have pretty much the German beer selection you would expect, the only thing keeping my rating down is the prices of their beer. I work in Sanford and would love to stop in for a liter after work now and then but it’s a tad too high. Just add a decent happy hour and it would be perfect!

Absolutely top of their trade. This place is a mini vacation away from the daily toils of stress. Drew Corey and all the staff know their job like Elvis knew bananas n peanut butter. Just go if you have never been.

This place is fan-freaking-tastic. First off, let’s just get this out of the way - the best thing about Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe is the food. That isn’t a bad thing. If one has decided to die in a way that involves eating too much Schnitzel, this is the place you should do it (don’t do that, though - it would bum out the other patrons). There is a HEAVY emphasis on German beer here, of course, but those taps run deep. Kostritzer, that lovely dark horse light black beer, has been on tap every time I’ve been there. They have all the usual German Pils, Hefe, Oktoberfests, and... well, you know the ones I’m talking about. No joke, it is Oktoberfest in this joint every day. Go, you must go. Accordion music and buxom beer maids! Go eat, drink, and be merry, people!

Great place with amazing food!!! I hadn’t been able to eat at a German restaurant in a really long time and this fit the bill. Desserts were also amazing. I came away just about too full to walk. We just walked in. The place was hopping for a small town on Sunday night, yet we got right in to a table without much ado. Getting our food could have been a little quicker, but like I said, the place was hopping. I would definitely recommend stopping by if you are in the area.

A blast! Great beer, great food, great polka -what more could you want in life. The #2 rated German beer hall in America, so you’d better like German food, German beer, live polka music and dancing, lots of cheering and toasting, and cozy close-quarters. Make a reservation or plan on waiting an hour for a table, and make sure you’re there from 8:00-9:00 for the folk instruments. The staff is great, but service can be slow at times because of the crowd. Just relax and drink more beer (they increased their taps to about 10). Jimmy and Ekhart are a great duo, and will keep you entertained for hours. Bring the kids, the old people, and everyone else you can. You and your beer-guzzlin’ buddies can order a boot (3L draft) and test your manliness as the crowd cheers you on (it’s the only place that even your wife will root for you to drink more beer). Theo -the owner- is a great guy, and you need to go out of your way to visit his little slice of Bavaria.
