Visited twice during our stay in Solvang! Service is wonderful. Food is delicious and the menu has a good variety. Berry cobbler is delicious as is their gumbo!

Great, higher end restaurant. We stopped in for happy hour prior to a play and enjoyed the food and service. Great for a romantic dinner or appetizers and drinks. The patio is very nice also.

It is a dine in restaurant with tables arranged close to each other. They have outside seating as well and that could be used when arrived with pets.
