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!

Came during the Solvang 3rd Wednesday - Summer wine walk. Excellent activity and hosts. This was the only, because it is the only brewery in the little city. They make their own on site. Pretty cool. Munched on the delicious pretzel and had some good ole chicken wings. Definitely coming back again!

I was traveling through California and arrived Solvang by recommendation from friends late in afternoon and was just looking for some food and a couple of beer before bedtime. I’m from Scandinavia and have traveled in all the Nordic countries and are very well familiar with the cuisine. My hotel advice me to go to Solvang Brewing Company. I went... More

The prices was okay, when you have en mind that you are in a tourist-trap. Good food, and the service from the waiters was a little slow but good and polite, they took there time to every costumer, and the result that we did have to wait a bit.

Went here twice, both times very pleased with service and food. Loved the pulled pork sandwich. Pork chops were good also. Oh, and don't forget to try their blonde pale ale. It won a big competition in San Diego about a week ago
