Great selection of food. Danish, American, Mexican, sandwiches, hot dogs, etc... The service was good and friendly. The food was good, but nothing exceptional. They offer indoor or outdoor seating. They also had a good variety of beer.

Red Viking had a Caesar salad special that was tasty. I liked they had a but-one-get-one beer special. The smorgasbord was what I wanted, but it didn't look very fresh when I looked at it. Our server was very kind. I do not think I...More
