Love this restaurant and have been many times! The food is well made and authentic. I had originally been apprehensive to try some of the dishes on the menu, but I've never had a server that was unable to explain the menu items. Sometimes I pass on a new experience and others I dive right in to try the new... More

Love the atmosphere and live music. The Pretzel is always a good starter. And the homemade Spätzle is always a wonderful side. They have soooo many choices of authentic meats and dishes it will keep you coming back to try them all.

I have spent well over a year of my life in Germany and Hollerbach's made me feel like I was back there. The food menu is extensive. Pork and schnitzels are superb. The beer selection is outstanding and the service is friendly and prompt. Anything they offer is great and true to its style. Nice outside dining too.

Passing time before flying out, we stopped in Downtown Sanford for Lunch. We grabbed a couple of German Beers and a Pretzel for an appetizer, we split the Schlachthaus Platte For Zwei, (Butchershop Platter for Two), more than we could eat, but it was the best meal we ate all week.

Great food! Well portioned. Felt like we had a 5 course meal by time said & done. We went with another couple. Felt like we sampled everything! Lol. We did not eat anything bad. Even dessert is great! Wonderful service as well.

This is an excellent place for family and friends. Great authentic German food made by the patrons fresh daily. They usually have a German band playing in the evenings and the beer steins and boots are served to standing groups to preserve good luck. Large groups need a reservation and after about 6 it's standing room only. Very fun place... More

I really enjoyed the Eisbein, super tender and flavorful. The decor is not what you would expect but it is a nice part of the downtown Stanford revitalization. Next time I will avoid the Heaven and Earth potatoes and swap it out for some spatzle or a dumpling. I really didnt care for apples in mashed potatoes.

We visited Hollerbach's for the 3rd time this March. Our family loves the delicious German food and beer. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. We will continue to visit this restaurant every time we come to the Orlando area.
