Description [edit]
A grand café in the style of those found throughout the Low Countries, especially the “Benelux” region of Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. These European grand cafés are comfortable places where neighbors can meet over a cup of espresso, a snack, a meal, or a strong ale – day after day. From bicycles and biers, to mussels and frites in a paper cone, Café Hollander integrates elements of the Benelux region’s rich culture, including a love for Belgian bier.

Great food. Slow Service. Don't try to go there if you only have 1hr lunch break. Veggie Chili is good. Fries w Sriracha Mayo can't be beat. Lion Burger hits the spot, and the blackberry turkey sandwich is the bomb. And the Iced Tea is pretty much the best Iced tea you will find in any restaurant. Hollander is #1 lunch on the east side. Much better than the ill-researched lunch solution of East Garden. That's like worst lunch in America. trust me. As far as the Mussels go, one time it was good, one time it wasn't. For Mussels go to Stephanos or Il Ritrova in Sheboygan. The real deal, my friend.

Decent food, bad service. I've eaten there several times. Everything is pretty good, EXCEPT DON'T ORDER MUSSELS. I've eaten them several times there, and they always bring me mussels that are broken and terribly stinky. Restaurants are not supposed to bring you mussels that are closed after cooking, or ANY BROKEN mussels because it means that the mussels were likely dead or BAD BEFORE they were cooked, and they tried to pass them off to your plate, which can make you terrible sick!!! I told the restaurant manger this, hoping he would offer a discount on the mussels, but he said an insincere, embarrassed sorry, and only offered to cook some more, which doesn't make up for all of the other times I had to waste at least 1/3 of my dish because it was BAD. I even wrote the restaurant asking for a coupon because of this and they NEVER even acknowledged my e-mail. Now that's stinky customer service (no pun intended). Me in Milwaukee

Great food, fantastic beer selection. I will certainly be going back. Food pricing is from $8-$24, with the majority under $15. My wife and I had import tap beer ($6-$12 per I believe) that were very good. Had a trendy/upscale atmosphere to it.
