This was originally a school for children to teach their Danish heritage. I still love it. It is fine dinning...and naturally wine wince wine took over the area. You will like it.

I asked around the gift shops for the most authentic restaurant I could go to for the 'dutch experience' and everyone said to go here! I can't remember the name of what I ordered but if you have every been in the south they have a delightful sandwich that I think originated near Louisianna. It is a sub with baby... More

In a town known for its Danish founding this restaurant seems to offer the most authentic Danish Cuisine. Red Viking and Solvang restaurants might be close.

The good - The outside and inside are decorated uber Danish & it's adorable! The bad - The food was horrible! Our danish sausages, danish meatballs and mashed potatoes were served to us cold. Which means they are pre-preparing the food and re-heating it in a microwave. Also, the server disappeared for long amounts of time (However, I don't know... More

They have a 15.00 Buffett, or you could also order from their menu. The food was fair, I wish they had sausage in their Buffet. When I asked the bus- boy what was in there Buffet, he wasn't able to say much.

This place is very friendly and the food is very good. Not price and a friendly staff. They have a great assortment of lunch and dinner foods. Will go there again in the future.

Found the food and the wine list to be reasonable. Service was average/poor and, unfortunately, there was a fly and a visible spider web as part of the "decoration" and apparently no one could be bothered to get rid of as nobody did anything when I mentioned. Definitely room for improvement available.

This restaurant has a very interesting dinner menu. I recommend the the Half Duck and Rack of lamb for a great price. Very few places sell half duck on the menu. Every time I visit Solvang I try to eat their at least once during my travel to California.

It is good. But not the best as the magazine said. 美式和丹麦餐都可以点。餐厅来的客人不多,味道还行,但不是我们想象的那么好吃。我觉得丹麦菜不够热,土豆没有烤香,很普通而且选择不多。
