We had lunch at the Red Viking while visiting Solvang. An historic place with nice people. Many traditional foods if that’s what you’re looking for. We enjoyed our meal & this unique town. We stayed in nearby Buellton in an RV Park.More

On main shopping street in Solvang, so stopped by before going to hotel. Food and service was excellent and had large assortment of items on menu. Lots of Danish specialty dishes and American cuisine. Quiet and service staff outstanding.

We weren't expecting much but our food was tasty, plenty of it. Hubbys sausages could have been warmer but my fried chicken was hot and cooked well.

This is a crowded diner style eatery. Prices are reasonable. Food is acceptable. Good place for a family to eat.

The fried chicken was ice cold, the buffet foods tasted stale and the bread was wrapped in a dirty cloth napkin, the meal was pricey and we will never eat there again.
