“Very good food, nice location”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We had a tasty Dinner here. Both fish entrees were prepared well, and they came with a salad and fries. The location, off the main drag, is quieter than most. Outdoor seating is available as well as an interior dining room. Our server was polite and efficient. This restaurant is one of better choices in Solvang.

“Wonderful Time.”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We enjoyed a delicious dinner and wine on their patio. They provided excellent and friendly service. We also enjoyed fantastic desserts at half price because it was Sunday evening (the end of the week). Hard to beat that deal.

“Everything was wonderful”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Had a great lunch here. First looking at the prices I thought it was a little pricy but lets give it a try. We each had the halibut fish and chips which came with a soup or salad. The salad was huge with chicken on it. My soup was creamy broccoli in a big bowl. The fish was three big pieces with a large amount of fries that tasted great. Was worth the price.

“Everything we had was delicious!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We were visiting because of the Santa Barbara Wine Country Half Marathon. The restaurant is lovely. We wanted to sit outside, but all the tables were taken. It was nice, because there was only one other couple inside dining. My hubby had the calamari for starters, and loved it. I chose to have the French Dip with fries. I would have to say one of the best french dips I've ever had. Meat was tender and plentiful. The fries were delicious, not greasy at all. Hubby had the calzone and said that it was wonderful. Kept trying to get me to taste it, but I didn't want to get full and not be able to eat my sandwich! We would have like to try one of their desserts, but were both too full. The table next to us had a scrumptious-looking dessert of some kind. We will definitely return when in Solvang again! I saw reviews posted on here where you order your food and go sit down - we didn't have that. We had a server seat us and come to our table and take our orders. Service was wonderful. Maybe because we dined for dinner and not lunch.
