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.

I was hesitant because the Yelp reviews were not very high. After walking around trying to find something my vegetarian hubby and I could agree on, we were roped in by a warm gentleman. I was freezing from all the wind, so the delicious potato leek soup really warmed me up. I ordered the Galumpkis (stuffed cabbage). It warmed my... More

The food was simple but good, restaurant standards. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere was very casual.

There are a lot of places to eat in the town and with a little looking you could probably do better than we did

We live less than an hour's drive from Solvang, so we stop there occasionally. While we have our favorites, we like to try different places. In this case, it did not even make the average of restaurants there. The service was reasonably good but the food was, in a word, odd. We both ordered dishes that you can find in... More

Worst experience in my life. Terrible food, terrible service, terrible atmosphere and terrible service. The only reason this place still has customers is that the customers are tourists and are not aware of the quality of the food there. They also charge %20 for their horrible service.

Good food, good service. I think of this resturant as a nice diner... with homemade food... wide variety. Good resturant for families as well older couples

My family and I visit Solvang once a year and this is the only restaurant we visit. The Peas Soup is amazing, way better than Anderson Restaurant. The two gentlemen who run the place are friendly and welcoming. The place is charming.

We walked around town and asked around for a good place to eat and a couple guided us to the mustard seed where they just finished and swore to us that we would not be disappointed, so we went to try it out. First thing is first, their Specials were amazing! My wife ordered the Danish Meatloaf special and it... More
