“Great Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

I love beer, and this was the place to get it in Solvang! Great selection of original brews. Very affordable. One of the only late night places in this small town. The service could've been better, as our waitress took forever to just grab our beers. We visited this brewery both nights we were in town, and the service was the same. But I sill give this place a big two thumbs up for pricing, location, and hours!

“Great food, service was crap...we almost left before my food came.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

This place has the look and feel of a great pub. I opted to eat outside as the weather was good. We had a beer, but it took some time to arrive. The beers were gone, and still waiting. Finally got waitress over and asked to place our order. Damn...It was over an hour. We discussed leaving and simply having a couple free beers. We were starving! Once the burgers arrived, they were very good, bleu cheese and bacon. I loved the food, but the wait was horrendous!

“Friendly Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

The atmosphere is fun, the staff was very friendly, the beer made onsite and the burgers tasty. Lots of unique burgers here. The menu also has some other interesting items too. The staff makes the tourists feel very welcome, and they seem to enjoy chatting with the customers.
It was nice to experience this restaurant because not only was the food very good, the staff was gracious and fun. We will return here first next time we visit the area.

“Best bacon bleu burger I've ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed a nice dinner at the Solvang Brewing Co. We had multiple 4oz beer samples- very tasty! We had a bacon bleu burger which was amazing, and an order of the flatbread hummus tapenade. We had the bread pudding for dessert. Huge portion!!! We sat inside near the fire and it was very cozy. We would definitely eat here again!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

I have been visiting Solvang for many years-just a good place to stop and enjoy. Never skip Andersons!!! It is tourist time-but that is it's charm.
