I have been extremely fortunate to have eaten at the River Course Grill on many occasions. The decor is very country/traditional, there is a great outdoor patio to eat at as well, and the restaurant also serves as the grill for the golf course. On my latest visit I had the grilled chicken sandwich with french fries. The rub they... More

Try the fish tacos, the hamburgers, and the soups. All are excellent, and on a nice day, the atmosphere on the outside deck makes for a perfect midday stop. This is not on the main drag in Solvang, but is just a ten minute walk, or a two minute drive from downtown Solvang.

Pro - excellent views and atmosphere Con - food has no effort put in. Caesar salad looked like it was from a supermarket packet. Beef brisket had old strips of beef squeezed between two loafs of bread. No cooking - service non existent

A great place for lunch after a round of golf or a little time on the driving range. Pleasant atmosphere, good service and good food.

The setting is beautiful but the service was actually pretty lousy and the food was just okay. We've been here twice just because my husband loves being at the golf course. Other than that, there are much better places to eat!

I would probably not go back. The menu was limited as were the portions. It was disappointing. I used to go there for lunch 10 years ago while I lived in the area. The golf course is run down. They had tarps over the driving range. It just looked like it needed some TLC.

Friday night, 6 pm, one guy at the bar, I order a steak medium rare. One diner, mind you. Chef sends it out well done. Either the folks here don't know, don't care, or are deliberately rude to the clientele, whatever, I'll never go there again and I've tried - giving them the best of the doubt for what? 25... More

My husband and I went here for lunch,(we live in Lompoc) and it was worth the 1/2 hour drive. It was a beautiful warm breezy day, and we sat on the patio with absolutey gorgeous views of the surrounding hills and golf course. Lunch was wonderful with many innovative sandwiches etc., And before we left I checked out the dinner... More
