I like this place. The food isn't great or unusual, but it's good and it's not expensive. I've been there a half dozen times and every time, the service has been excellent and the food was fine. There's free parking and it's central enough that...More

We ate outside on a lovely, sunny day. Both the Chef Salad and Tuna Melt were delicious! The owner was our server and very accommodating to our specific requests. He even invited us back later in the day for the Farmer's Market and concert across...More

We stopped in without checking Tripadvisor, and sure wish we had! The outside terrace looked appealing, and a sign advertised comfort food. Inside it was well-worn and dingy. The one server was friendly. Food: plain and tasteless. Lean Cuisine makes better Swedish meatballs. Look elsewhere!

First time in Solvang and decided to stop here for dinner! It was a perfect selection! It's run by two brothers who were both so pleasant and attentive!! We love the food and loved the service! Would definitely go back! Recommend this place!!

The nicest things I can say are that the waiter was pleasant and they keep the place clean, but in all other ways no effort was made to rise above mediocrity. The restaurant is located right on the main street which is how we found...More

This used to be a great restaurant and now is basically boring food and not good at that. It doesn't have the appeal or atmosphere is used to have. Used to be a favorite for locals and now the parking lot is empty.
