“Good food, good brews, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Had an early dinner at Solvang Brewing Company. The service was what I expect. We tried two of the brews, and the house root beer - good stuff. The meal portions were generous, fresh and tasty.

One observation - the menu on the web site and posted on the door does NOT indicate they have a children's menu. We almost didn't try it because we have a 12 year old with us. In fact, they do - and they are rather kid friendly.

“Good food but HUGE portions and average staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

All of the food we ate at Solvang Brewing Company was delicious but the portions were HUGE! I think it'd be better if the prices were a little lower and the portions were more reasonable especially because many people are on vacation and don't want to take leftover food to-go. I also wish they let you sit inside during the day - Outside was crowded and not as nice but a sign said they don't allow indoor seating until dinner. Service was okay... They seemed to keep forgetting about us but were apologetic so it evened out. Decent place if you want some fattening pub food but nothing special!

“Love the Solvang Brewing Company <3”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I love this restaurant I thought the service was great and the beer was fantastic. I loved how each beer had its own unique taste like no other beer I have had. The brewmaster happened to be there as my boyfriend and I were checking out the brewing area, he was nice enough to take us on a tour of thier process, how cool is that, very nice guy. Thanks Dave for your hospitality, the owners were there too and they were very nice!!!!! We will be back time and time again

“Good Brew -- Typical Bar Food -- Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Enjoyed the beer. Menu was your typical bar food. Service was just OK. Good place for a weekend lunch but we will not go back for dinner. Everything about this place was just average.

“Cant complain about service ........ there was none!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Waited more than 30 min just for iced water. Salad arrived before wine. Had to ask staff several times where the hell my drinks were. Should have just got up & gone elsewhere. The only absolutely shockingly bad service in my 4wk USA trip. Food only tastes as good as the service which accompanies it .................what the hell are you guys running here????
