I went to this restaurant for lunch and it has been a good choice... There is not a plenty of food between you can choose but the quality is really good: hamburger, ribs, pork... The plus here is the beer, locally brewed and really good,...you can choose between different kinds. If you are in Vik it worths a visit.More

Visited Smiðjan Brewery with my family because they had been recommended to us. The atmosphere is chic and neat, the food is deliciously tasty. Unfortunately the food is quite expensive. Our visit to Smiðjan really put a dent in our trael budget.

How wonderful to find a local brewery in this tiny town. The beer is great and the burgers are pretty nice. They have there own beer and also a good selection of Icelandic and foreign beers. A nice surprise!

I had the pulled pork and it was great. I had a side salad with honey mustard dressing that I substituted instead of fries or onion rings (it's not on the menu but it should be). Also had an IPA beer that was brewed in-...house and it was delicious. The service from the dark haired younger lady was great, she was super helpful.More

Cozy place in the little town of Vík. Wonderful and friendly staff. The chicken burger was exquisite. The chips were delicious. Excellent onion rings with chilli mayo.

I went to Smiðjan Brugghús on a busy friday night. I had to wait in line to be able to order and it was OK. I waited for 25 minutes. I ordered burgers and beer. I could taste the beers before I decided which beer...I was going to order. When I finished ordering, I had to wait for the food, it was OK, busy Friday night. The burger was delicious. When I had eaten half the burger, I had finished the beer. To get another beer, I had to go back in line and wait again for 25 minutes. When I got a new beer, I could not eat the burger, it was cold and unappetizing. I complained to an employee and said this was not right and he just said OK. This is great brewery/restaurant, It's so sad for Smiðjan Brugghús to click on details like that.More

Nice cool place, tasty burgers, pleasant service. Their own beers are suboptimal at best, it was saved by couple of guest craft beers on tap.

It is a local burger house with local tasty beers made from them. It has 5-6 burgers, very delicious! The service is quick and pleasant! A very good choice for someone who is in the area of Vik.

We tried both the burgers and ribs - both was wonderful in taste with especially a juicy burger. Can recommend this place

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