Came to charming Solvang just before 3 pm. Checked in at the hotel and went for lunch. It seamed like a complot - everyone closed at 3. But then we found Red Viking... A nice restaurant with good service.

Lots of choices for Danish meals in this town and if you only have a day you make a choice and you live with it. In this case something about this place caught my eye. Could be the cool name or the design or the hope of a smorgasbord. Unfortunately, quite frankly the smorgasbord didn't look all that appealing. Service... More

We stopped to take a break from shopping and eat lunch. Wanted a traditional Danish meal and this place did not disappoint. We both tried the meatball and sausage; they were great. Good food, good service with casual family atmosphere.

Decent choices for simple fare with a chance to try some decent tasting Danish dishes. Was surprised by the curry mayo cauliflower, was great texture and delicious. The sliced cold meatballs and pate were also quite good. The spaghetti however looked disgusting and the hot meatballs in gravy was almost all gravy with small and few meatballs with no real...

Nice Danish Smorgasbord... not overly extensive, but priced well. It also has the standard danish fare via menu. Quick service. Nice atmosphere... good for families...

Town was packed with tourists and long waits for most places. This offered quick seating and good danish food. Service was good.

We wanted to try some typical Danish dishes so selected this restaurant. It took quite a long time to just get three glasses of water; our salads arrived long before the water. Some menu items like the split pea soup were already gone by the time we ordered which is a bit odd since it was only 5:30 pm. There... More

We were looking for a light lunch amid all the hearty offerings in Solvang. This was just the place. The open faced sandwiches, cold or hot, were the perfect size and the food was good. I recommend the pork with red cabbage on the wonderful pumpernickle!

The website indicates that you can get breakfast here; you cannot. They were closed this morning at 8:15, and while they post lunch and dinner menus, there is no breakfast.
