I am by no means a fan of peas, but the pea soup here was outstanding! My wife and I got the all-you-can-eat meal, and could barely walk out of the restaurant when we were done. The atmosphere was clean and the service was great, so our experience was a comfortable one.

The restaurant is worth a visit, though the soup (once the toppings are added) felt expensive. Food was okay, but service was great. They really try to make you feel at home.

We stopped here recently while driving up Highway 101, curious to see what the restaurant was like - after seeing billboards on the highway. The restaurant is dated and touristy,and the pea soup is just ok. The chicken sandwich was tastier. There is a room upstairs, which houses a small museum - memorabilia on history of the area - very... More

Expectations fully met. Finally had their great split pea soup with all the accompaniments. In bowl, in bread, with bread, good coffee & salads. Check out the gift shop & upstairs museum. They have the recipe & hospitality down pat. New tradition. Will not pass through area again without a stop here.

Driving from Santa Barbara to Cambria.....we stopped at Andersen's for a quick lunch. A huge menu and very large portions! Sandwiches are so large that one between two is ideal! Also a gift shop to have a browse. Again,all staff were very friendly,helpful and polite.

I ate here with a party of 8 for dinner and we all felt pretty good about our meals. A couple of people were happy with the fish and chips, the patty melt looked good, and the Alaskan cod filet was even better than expected. None of us had the pea soup since we're not fans of that type of... More

Nothing to brag about! Service was average, food was mediocre, prices were average. There are better places to dine in Buellton. The gift shop is very expensive and is loaded with cheap junk!

Saw all the ads and publicity for their pea soup, so based on that we stopped for lunch to indulge. Easy to find. The restaurant is very large, with an equally-large gift shop The pea soup is an expensive side dish, so ordered it along with sandwiches. The pea soup is ok, don't understand the fuss. Sandwiches are like what... More

Came here after walking the main town in Solvang. Service was friendly and attentive. There was bread brought to us after the drinks. There was four slices of each, medium thick white bread with poppy seeds and a thinner. denser wheat bread. I suggest saving the bread for eating with the soup. The food arrived shortly thereafter. Three of us... More
