I really can't believe that someone can give this place less than 5 stars! The place isn't fancy, it looks cheap and cheerful but the food and service were the best we had in California , honestly My lamb were melting in the mouth, and I couldn't have enough of the okra on side, at the end I had to...

We stayed in Solvang as a sleep point before continuing a car trip. Unfortunately most restaurants here close early (9 PM). Even though we had a good choice with a really nice waiter and I had one of the best lamp I ever had (it wasn't in the menu, need to ask for it). Recommended if you have the chance... More

Someone please give this restaurant a real chef. The location is great, the service was great, but the food was the worst we had in Solvang. Weinerschnitzel tasted more like chicken-friend beef (not veal), and was served with a horrible brown tasteless gravy. Danish meatballs were also bad, and surprisingly were served with...you guessed it...brown tasteless gravy. It's really too... More

We had lunch on a very hot day. Service was OK, especially setting outside in the heat. The spagetti and meatballs was Ok but not for the high price. The combo salad was good but maybe over priced. Server was nice and friendly but seemed like they needed an additional server. '

Egg white spinach omelet, potatoes, waffles, and sausage recommended. Outside seating at street level making the atmosphere fun. Server was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely come our next visit to Solvang.

Very friendly waiter, good beer, but I was not happy with my choices. I ordered the crab, shrimp and cheese sandwich. It was cold and a bit salty. I was dissapointed. The onion rings had more flour than onions and were served cold as well. My boys ordered ordinary burgers and were happy with their choices. Considering the prices, I... More

Had been here before a few years back and decided to come back. We ordered the Dutch combo, stuffed cabbage dish, and split pea soup with turkey sandwich. I personally enjoyed the stuffed cabbage. It was their special for the day. I had never had stuffed cabbage before, so I decided to try it. I was very pleased; the tomato... More

We ate here for dinner. Everything was delicious. I had the weiner schnitzel, Hubby had the sausage and meatballs, we both had the veggies and cabbage. The cabbage was absolutely delicious! The pea soup is also very good! I cannot wait to come back and eat at this restaurant!

We stopped by Solvang on a weekday night on our way south. The town was very quiet and for the most part everything was closed. We took a chance on The Mustard Seed and we are glad we did. The waiters were friendly and helpful. I asked about the chili and was told that it was made right there. Again,... More

Recommended by one of the locals, we found this restaurant to be a great value. The food and service were great and it was a nice place to sit down and have lunch after walking through the shops in Solvang.
