We weren't expecting much but our food was tasty, plenty of it. Hubbys sausages could have been warmer but my fried chicken was hot and cooked well.

This is a crowded diner style eatery. Prices are reasonable. Food is acceptable. Good place for a family to eat.

The fried chicken was ice cold, the buffet foods tasted stale and the bread was wrapped in a dirty cloth napkin, the meal was pricey and we will never eat there again.

We took our daughter and son in law here for dinner before attending the Solvang Theatre. Did not care for the buffet or meatballs; however, everything else was good. The Weinerschnitzel and red cabbage were delicious. We had good service and apelskivers for dessert. Yummy!

Nice outside seating area and reasonably priced drinks. It's a good place to meet friends and pour a cold one when the rest of the town shuts down between 5-6 weekdays.

Wiener schnitzel was plain like boiled veal then breaded and fried. Vegetables undercooked and needed seasoning. Did not like anchovies on schnitzel. Potatoes boulder and under seasoned also.

Had an early lunch, the smorgasbord for $15 which was great. The day we were there it was exceptionally busy as there was a vintage car display in town. The staff were very friendly and efficient especially the front desk lady who continued to smile...More

Thank you for the 4 Star review and your patronage. Glad you enjoyed lunch in the heart of the "Danish Village." The Danish founders did create a very relaxing and charming old world atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. Have a safe and great trip.

We wanted genuine Danish food while in Solvang so we tried the Red Viking. Our waiter (Kamron) was great. He answered all our questions and was very attentive. The food was "meh". My weinerschnitzel was dry and tough. They also have a buffet.
