We love to go to the Viking on Wednesdays for Family Pizza night. The service is great and the food is always good.

Came here at the suggestion of our niece - kind of a sports bar / casual place with lots of charm & very inviting atmosphere- service was quick and very helpful. My lunch Burger was top quality- reasonable prices & great menu variety-

Whenever I am out of town I always look up a local wing place to check out. The Happy Viking exceeded my expectations. The wings are delicious with the restaurants own homemade sauces. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed.

Stopped by at this aptly-named brew pub 4 a beer after watching the Viking / Green Bay football game. Wings were good and had the chance to watch the hardest-working bartender in California

Great selection of beers and some amazing wings! I've been here several times and it has always been good. They have a beer of the week night and you can keep the glass when you are done with your tasting.

I come here every month. I love the rattle snake pasta and the garlic fries. The location is perfect cause I like to take a walk down plumas after my meal.

Went for the first time in a long time due to a birthday. There is a reason we dont frequent the Viking. Dont get me wrong, its a nice place, beautiful building, great selection of beers and cocktails. But the service is average and the wait time for food is lengthy. My better half and I ordered calamari and steak... More

Nice atmosphere, and the hot wings are delicious, as well as the garlic fries. We also enjoyed some local brew from the Sutter Buttes Brewery on tap.

Thank John H
