Worst experience in my life. Terrible food, terrible service, terrible atmosphere and terrible service. The only reason this place still has customers is that the customers are tourists and are not aware of the quality of the food there. They also charge %20 for their horrible service.

My family and I visit Solvang once a year and this is the only restaurant we visit. The Peas Soup is amazing, way better than Anderson Restaurant. The two gentlemen who run the place are friendly and welcoming. The place is charming.

We walked around town and asked around for a good place to eat and a couple guided us to the mustard seed where they just finished and swore to us that we would not be disappointed, so we went to try it out. First thing is first, their Specials were amazing! My wife ordered the Danish Meatloaf special and it... More

I really can't believe that someone can give this place less than 5 stars! The place isn't fancy, it looks cheap and cheerful but the food and service were the best we had in California , honestly My lamb were melting in the mouth, and I couldn't have enough of the okra on side, at the end I had to...

We stayed in Solvang as a sleep point before continuing a car trip. Unfortunately most restaurants here close early (9 PM). Even though we had a good choice with a really nice waiter and I had one of the best lamp I ever had (it wasn't in the menu, need to ask for it). Recommended if you have the chance... More

Someone please give this restaurant a real chef. The location is great, the service was great, but the food was the worst we had in Solvang. Weinerschnitzel tasted more like chicken-friend beef (not veal), and was served with a horrible brown tasteless gravy. Danish meatballs were also bad, and surprisingly were served with...you guessed it...brown tasteless gravy. It's really too... More

We had lunch on a very hot day. Service was OK, especially setting outside in the heat. The spagetti and meatballs was Ok but not for the high price. The combo salad was good but maybe over priced. Server was nice and friendly but seemed like they needed an additional server. '

Egg white spinach omelet, potatoes, waffles, and sausage recommended. Outside seating at street level making the atmosphere fun. Server was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely come our next visit to Solvang.
