We have been coming to this restaurants for years and have always found the food to be excellent. Definitely our first choice for lunch in Solvang. Friendly and attentive service, varied seasonal menu and meal cooked as ordered. Indoor or outdoor dining available. Pet friendly.

Stopped in with a group of 6 but we got our food quickly and it was all great. Nice big menu with lots of options for substitutions. We sat outside and enjoyed the great weather.

Had lunch here on a Saturday, and it was delicious! Much better than I expected for a place where you order at the counter. My only disappointment was that when we returned later to see about dessert, it was already closed.

For a restaurant that takes orders at the counter and serves you by the number on the table, this was a pleasant surprise. I had blackened halibut salad which I wish someone would serve me daily for lunch. Best food this trip.
