As far as I know this is the only smorgasbord in town. It has a varied assortment of Danish dishes. We always come here when we visit and get the buffet. It is NOT fancy, but quaint. The red cabbage sausage and meatballs are delicious....More

Located near the corner of Alisal & Copenhaven Drive. Small restaurant with amazing food. Offers a full menu plus a smorgasbord featuring Danish cuisine. Try the Lemon Salmon! Very reasonably priced.

Had the best schnitzel served by a local friendly lady! Food tasted like it was just made! Seasoned just right! Not a high end restaurant but one that hits the spot!

For our first meal in Solvang, we decided to try a Nordic meal. We chose sausage, meatballs, mashed potatoes, gravy and red cabbage. It was quite good for a one time experience. Next time I would leave the sausage. Ha. Staff was helpful.

A nice restaurant to taste Danish food. My wife had Danish meatballs and sausage and I ate at the buffet. Both were good, but the buffet was a little limited, but not bad. Prices were reasonable and the staff was courteous. No frills, just good...More

The lunch buffet was not exactly what we expected, coming from Denmark. Obviously the Americans don't know much about danish SMØRREBRØDSBORD. They had a few Danish specialities, but things like jello and french fries do NOT belong on such a buffet. However, Solvang is a...More

Cute restaurant decor. Good lunch menu with reasonable prices, almost double the price for dinner. The food was satisfactory. The buffet looked good but a bit expensive for lunch $15/person. The waitress or owner was hospitable, always checking to ensure everything was okay. Only complaint...More
