Good smorgasbord

The consistently good variety of Danish and other Baltic foods is dependable. The value is reasonable. The service is excellent and is delivered with a smile. Some foods were clearly warmed over from previous servings but none were beyond enjoyment.

I have been going to Solvang for over 25 years and have always either had breakfast at Paula's or my hotel. I decided to break out of my comfort zone and try somewhere new. Had a wonderful breakfast here, so good that we came back two days in a row. Reasonably priced and very nice service. The corned beef hash... More

We stopped by Red Viking to unwind and have some desserts. My brother tried their sundae which was delicious. It was a big serving too...with three scoops of ice cream. My mom had one of Solvang's favorite...Aebleskivers!! They are pure goodness in your mouth. You can't visit Solvang...without trying them. She also had coffee and she said it was "very... More

The sausage and meatball combination was very good. They were both milder than I am used to, but they were delicious, as were the red cabbage and mashed potatoes/gravy. We later compared prices with other restaraunts, and found this one to be the most reasonable ($9.95, as opposed to $14.95 for the same item). The service was also superb.

My girlfriend and I stopped by for a early dinner, and wished we would have tried the salad bar, which we had not noticed. The sandwiches we tried were a good amount and very tasty, the staff was very attentive and friendly.

Had a nice dinner here on Memorial Day weekend. The restaurant is not fancy but the food is Authentic Danish fare and the Abelskivers are delicious!

We were skeptical when we could get right in for Sunday breakfast but we're delighted we gave it a try! I had corned beef hash, my husband the veggie omelet & we were both pleased with our meals, coffee & service! Will definitely go back.

Food wasn't too bad. I wasn't very hungry, so I split with a bunch of my companions, so I tried a lot. The sausage was pretty good, and the ebelskivers. It was good, nothing terribly fancy.

Only found 3 places open on a Tuesday. Luckly my husband picked this one. I ordered lamb sharks that were amazing. If you like Danish good chose the smorgasbord. Too many odd things I never heard of so I stuck with the lamb. I would definitely eat there again. Our waitress Debra was awesome!
