The sausage and meatball combination was very good. They were both milder than I am used to, but they were delicious, as were the red cabbage and mashed potatoes/gravy. We later compared prices with other restaraunts, and found this one to be the most reasonable ($9.95, as opposed to $14.95 for the same item). The service was also superb.

My girlfriend and I stopped by for a early dinner, and wished we would have tried the salad bar, which we had not noticed. The sandwiches we tried were a good amount and very tasty, the staff was very attentive and friendly.

Had a nice dinner here on Memorial Day weekend. The restaurant is not fancy but the food is Authentic Danish fare and the Abelskivers are delicious!

We were skeptical when we could get right in for Sunday breakfast but we're delighted we gave it a try! I had corned beef hash, my husband the veggie omelet & we were both pleased with our meals, coffee & service! Will definitely go back.

Food wasn't too bad. I wasn't very hungry, so I split with a bunch of my companions, so I tried a lot. The sausage was pretty good, and the ebelskivers. It was good, nothing terribly fancy.

Only found 3 places open on a Tuesday. Luckly my husband picked this one. I ordered lamb sharks that were amazing. If you like Danish good chose the smorgasbord. Too many odd things I never heard of so I stuck with the lamb. I would definitely eat there again. Our waitress Debra was awesome!

Our first clue to move on should have been when the waitress asked if we wanted a margarita made with gin or vodka. ??? We were not looking for a smorgasbord but we were hungry and tired so we stayed and ordered off the menu. Three ordered the French dip and one got the salmon. The French dips were REALLY... More

We decided to go to the Red Viking for dinner and had a wonderful Rib Eye Steak it was delicious and done to perfection. The service was good and it showed how good the food is as the restaurant was full. Luckily we went a little late and managed to get a table without having to wait too long. We... More

My husband and I shared a platter of open-faced Danish sandwiches, which were delicious and freshly prepared. Wait staff was very friendly and efficient.
