Great craft beer and the best beef burger I've ever tasted! Friendly staff, plus, you can see the brewery behind the glass window!

From the minute you walk through the door, great place. This place has the vibe and the food to match. The sound track took me back to the early 90’s and the blue cheese burger was to die for, period, if you are this way...check it out.More

Amazing burgers and fries! We hiked about 8k steps and were looking for a great meal. I’m a vegetarian and the black bean burger was great. My daughter loved the classic burger. The buns are terrific. It’s casual and the staff was super nice. 🍔

I’ve only written a few restaurants reviews before, But I’m doing it here. I tried their Blue geese burger and it’s f.cking fantastic. Hands down one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. It was like an orgasm in my mouth. 10/10 would recommend.

We heard about the Brewpub with the craft beers, what surprised us was that it was also a pretty good BBQ place. After a week of lamb and Arctic Char, what a welcome break! I tried the sampler plate and loved it all, my wife...had the kids cheeseburger. The burger was quite big, beware it was smothered in ketchup. We enjoyed our visit and highly recommend it next time you are in VikMore

Lovely place in Vik, funky brewhouse, with a large menu of both beer and food. Warm blankets to keep cozy, and the most delicious burger and fries. Highly recommended.

After reading the reviews for the burgers we wanted to try it out. Very busy during dinner time but we did get a table. The best burger and fries we have had. Burgers were delicious and juicy, fries were perfect. Buffalo wings were good too....My husband tried a couple beers, he liked them. I tried the cider, didn’t care for it, tasted like sparkling wine. Overall a great meal!More

We ate at the Smidjan Brugghus after a full day of sightseeing with several of our wedding guests. We had arranged for the dinner prior to the date because it was going to be a big party (25+). Unfortunately, many of the guests ended up...not making the dinner because the sightseeing trip took a few hours longer than expected and they were traveling back to Reyjkavik from Vik, to catch early morning flights. The person in charge that evening was more than accommodating and understood the issue that arose. The atmosphere was comfortable, and the food was delicious. The beer was great. We love local beers everywhere we travel. For anyone staying in Vik or even those that are traveling thru the area, if you are looking for a great burger, patronize Smidjan Brugghus!!!! The staff are friendly and the food is a great value (outstanding flavor as well).More

I ordered some BBQ ribs, the flavor was good but they arrived cold. I don't like to return food. As a company, you must take care of the product you offer and not contaminate the experience.

They offer a sample of their beers in case you're not familiar with them or can't decide. The beers we ordered were very good, as were the onion rings we had with them. Our only regret is that they didn't brew a stout.

Sorry, I don’t know. But given late October should be fairly busy because it’s the Northern Lights season, I would think so.
