So, my new bride had told me about how great this place was and that the pea soup was definitely something special. Since we were in the area, we decided to stop in for lunch. I will say we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, but the manager was constantly making sure that people were being... read more

Unfortunately the Pea Soup Andersons of the past is gone. The menu is the same. ..the little stores are the same....but the quality of the food is hit or miss (except the soup & bread)

Split Pea and Pee Wee -- the non-identical, identical twins are there to greet you. This is truly a one-of-a-kind American classic. We go there whenever we travel up the coast or visit Solvang. Wonderful food -- great service -- it is THE place to stop.

We visited the restaurant with our teenage son and his comment was, "I definitely enjoyed it more than I thought I would". Our party had a burger, Monte Cristo and the meatloaf dinner. It all was good, comfort type food. There were only a handful of tables with guests on a Saturday evening which makes one wonder as you enter,... More

The gift shop is so/so but it's really all about the soup. Loved the Pea Soup. Definitely stop by and grave a quart to go if you can.

Ate there last Saturday with thoughts of how good it was on previous trips along Hwy 101. Unfortunately the restaurant is very worn and tired looking with lots of junky items for sale before getting into the dining area. Business was slow no line of diners but several waitresses or hosts walked by without a greeting or "one moment please... More

We enjoyed a couple of great meals here when we stayed in Solvang, and we enjoyed the soup so much we made an effort to come right back this visit (from Australia, so no mean feat). The all you can eat pea soup is brilliant- just what is necessary to help deal with a cold day. The gift shop is... More

Service is just ok. Meat and vegetables taste like canned food. I've had better microwaved food. Decor is old and weary.

The place was recommended to us by an elderly couple we met along our drive in US1 southbound. True enough this place lived up to their reputation of serving thick split pea soup which was perfect during our cold evening visit. Be careful though and save enough space in your belly to accommodate the large portion of their other offerings.... More
