Very good pub food, terrific service

Had traditional Danish open face sandwiches -- turkey breast, Helvetia cheese, dressed greens, tomato & red onion slices on Danish bread -- as an app... Could have been the meal. Simply delicious. Split a beef bergunon (sp?). Beef was extremely tender, not dried out or stingy, and mushrooms... read more

They had the best micro-brewed beer on our recent trip. All beers are "clean" and nicely done. Try their signature Valhala Ale. The brewery has been here for 4 years, but they left a lot of the inside original and it's a good atmosphere. Very knowledgeable and friendly bartender.

Seat yourself, after standing around someone will finally appear to tell you to find your own table. When they come take your order, be simple, because if there is anything wrong with your order, tough luck. You won't see them again until you get your bill.

Great beer selection. I really liked the double IPA. Got the reuben for lunch and it was really big and nice. Very good service.

We stopped here for a quick bit to eat and tried some of the local beers. Servers were very friendly and helpful with offering options for us to try to eat and drink. Also have nice area to sit outside to enjoy the nice weather and people watch.

Came here with a group of 25 after a long day of wine tasting. The restaurant was so accommodating of our rowdy group. Was the perfect spot to end the night. They split checks for us even which made it SO convenient. They had a live singer and dancing so we could work off some of the wine sweats too... More

We arrived in Solvang late and this restaurant was still open. Everyone in my group was very happy with their selection. Our friends ordered huge all beef hot dogs that they felt was the best that they have ever eaten!

Solvang Brewing Company = Beer. We're dining here! My husband and I were strolling down Mission Street looking for a place to eat and we were immediately drawn to the windmill which is a prime photo op and the fact that this restaurant is a brewery. Upon entering the restaurant unfortunately there was no host to greet us and we... More

I ate here twice during my stay with the biking group. SBC has a large selection of beer. I had the burger & ahi salad at SBC. Both meals were tasty & the portions large. Everyone in my bike group liked the food & the portions were large enough to satisgy cyclists after riding 70 miles.

The beer was great, the people were friendly and fun to talk to. The food was a small step above normal pub fare.
