There are a lot of places to eat in the town and with a little looking you could probably do better than we did

We live less than an hour's drive from Solvang, so we stop there occasionally. While we have our favorites, we like to try different places. In this case, it did not even make the average of restaurants there. The service was reasonably good but the food was, in a word, odd. We both ordered dishes that you can find in... More

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.

Good food, good service. I think of this resturant as a nice diner... with homemade food... wide variety. Good resturant for families as well older couples

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
