Went here during our week long stay in the are? It looked and sounded promising, as we were hoping to continue the pattern of excellent breweries visited in the region. Had 3 samples of their lighter beers ( raspberry wheat ale, hefeweizen, and Pilsner. All very nondescript, almost tasteless. Followed up with a glass of oatmeal stout that left a... More

Solid 4 star restaurant. My wife and I passed through Solvang on a road trip and we were very glad to have stumbled (well, Yelp assisted stumbled) upon this brewery/ restaurant. What a fantastic place - 2 dining areas plus a bar area with love music and a room with a pool table make this a comfortable and well appointed... More

After wandering all around town looking for stores or restaurants open on a Monday night (in the summer, very little open in a tourist town? Really?!), we ended up here. The Blonde was VERY good; the food was quite tasty, and all in our party were pleased with our meal.

I enjoy the atmosphere and the selection of beers. Met the owners on the this trip.. they have some wonderful ideas and have won several awards for their brewed beers of which they are very proud of and rightly so.

We went twice to have a little food and a beer. The food and beer were fine. The service was slow and it seemed that no one wanted to be their. I don't really don't know why we went back. Nice outdoor seating.

Located right on the main street, the patio is the best place to enjoy your food and brew. We had the burger which was quite good. The local brews are a little less interesting. All in all, try it, you will probably enjoy it. We enjoy Firestone-Walker brewery more, so give that one a try also.

The variety on the appetizer menu and the service was good. The choices of beers was excellent. The atmosphere was nice, friendly, pleasant. Located right across the street from the Inn. Dinner is served until 10 p.m.

Ate here twice in three days. Party of three. Sat at outside table. Service was good and attentive. Not a quiet place. Music played inside pub played inside. Price was reaonable. Portions generous. Mixture of Scandinavian ethnic and American. Good draft beer.

We went here in a large group, and they had reserved the big back room for us. The beer was interesting and enjoyable (IPA and oatmeal stout), and the food was standard pub fare, but perfectly OK. As the place is quite large it gets quite noisy and raucous later in the evening. I'd be happy to go back again.

The beer was very good as was the food. It's a typical brewpub fare. We will definitely return on our next trip to Solvang!
