Went with family to check out the cute town of Solvang and decided to do a little wine tasting. If you have children, you are only permitted to sit in one section of the patio area. We were the only people tasting on the day we went, so the atmosphere was just so so. The wines were average. Our server did seem knowledgeable about the product he was serving.

We have come here before,but this was, by far, the worst experience. Extremely noisy with foreign tour groups. We ordered a special foreign cider from the menu which was priced clearly at $4.50 each. When the check ...finally! ... arrived they were priced at $7.50 each! We complained but were told that the price was $7.50 on a different menu and we'd been given the wrong menu. They refused to adjust the bill. That,on top of horrible service, will be having us looking around for something better,quieter, and much better service next time we visit Solvang.

This is my favorite place to taste in Solvang. Usually very quiet and off the main thoroughfare (except when they overflow from their restaurant next door-with tour buses filled with kids- which happened for the first time on this trip). The bartender/manager know their wines... they also have a nice selection of beers and vintage sodas... and very nice ginger beer from Australia. The food is also wonderful, with what I think the best potato pancakes in Solvang... the sausages we ordered were crisp and tasty.. as well as the red cabbage and sauerkraut. The restaurant is located next store to the tasting room, but will deliver the food if you are tasting the wine. Good practices/great stuff!

We needed to eat dinner before seeing a show at the outdoor theatre and we had picky eaters in the party. We saw that the menu had chicken strips, hamburgers, sandwiches and that would work for us. The service was slow, the food was mediocre, and the prices were a bit high. Next time we see a show we will be packing a lunch and picnicing in the park. We most likely won't visit this place again.

A large selection of beer and the server owner has a great knowledge of the beers he sells. If you get the flight of beer he will tell you a lot about the beer as you get it. A lot of fun. The best place we went to in Solvang.
