The place is Very Friendly and tasty Food. They have a Buffet but I do not do Buffets ANYWHERE! Love their Lamb Shank and Baby Beef Liver as well as all other dishes are sooooooo Delicious!

The food was horrible, and it appeared that it was reserved after leftovers were refrigerated / frozen. The staff was not courteous and kept us waiting for long. We requested to speak to a manager, who did arrive (shabbily dressed), and was quite a dishonest person, and did not believe in customer service. We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

It was OK, formica topped tables, limited menu with many tourist options/burgers, sandwiches and some Danish meatballs and sausage dishes. The red cabbage was excellent but meatballs were burned/hard as a rock on the bottom. My husband had the liver and bacon and said it was excellent.

Spent the day after Thanksgiving in Solvang and the Red Viking provided a wonderful lunch with a nice casual atmosphere and friendly and happy wait staff. The menu had both American and Swedish dishes in addition to a smorgasbord for those who hadn't eaten enough on Thanksgiving. I had the combination Swedish Meatballs and Sausage with red cabbage and mashed potatoes with gravy and it was outstanding. Tasty to the last bite. Another in our party had the Reuben, another the Roast Beef sandwich and the last the liver pate sandwich. Everyone was more than pleased with their fare. This is not one of the fanciest nor did it have the longest wait line to get in, but I will definitely eat here when I travel to Solvang again. I really liked the Red Viking and the prices were reasonable. Open 8A - 8P.

The server was friendly and helpful. She answered questions and offered tastes of cheeses before we chose our omelette. Splitting was not a problem, the coffee was very good!
