I have to be honest, our expectations weren't high. A lunch at a golf course grill?? What a beautiful setting on a Tuesday afternoon. We started with a fabulous local Sauvignon Blanc for Rusack in Solvang at a great price. I had a smoked beef brisket dip -- a lot of beef and a little roll, perfect. Have the onion... More

Want a break from shopping in Solvang, away from the crowds? On the outer edge of town overlooking the golf course and the gorgeous countryside, this is a great place for lunch whether you choose to dine inside or on the lovely outside patio. Very reasonable prices for great soup, salads, and sandwiches! Cannot beat the views.

A nice warm day, a very nice patio, plenty of shade from the umbrellas, a very lovely view overlooking part of the course, but mostly of the surrounding country side and coastal mountains. The wait staff were very nice and the two main entry salads were very good.

This is a great spot for a light lunch or early dinner. The view at sunset is beautiful. They recently changed the menu and it is not as good as it used to be. It is not as elaborate and is way more limited. Atmoshphere is nice.

What could be more beautiful than eating at a restaurant over looking a golf course. The restaurant is not just for golfers. As a matter of fact, the majority of people who eat there do not play golf. When the weather is nice, which is often, sitting outside under an umbrella is the ticket. The restaurant serves breatfast and lunch.... More

Was happy to have both breakfast and lunch selections instead of the brunch buffet. Outdoor seating provided an excellent view. Menu items made it hard to select but worth the effort. The tortilla soup was tops. The turkey ciabata sandwich was excellent as was the onion rings.

Most pleasant place to eat at the Alisal property. Hard to get to without a car, although perhaps the hotel will drive you there.

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
