We had breakfast on a Sunday morning and it wasn't crowded. We ordered omelet with tomatoes and eggs with hash browns and bacon. The food quality and portions were well worth the price and the service was excellant

We usually come for the soup and did have some twice. The second time was better. I think the first one was the bottom of the kettle. We also ate dinner there. I ordered a veal dish. It tasted and cut like cardboard with sauce. The other people in our party had no complaints. Breakfast was another experience altogether. I... More

Ever since I was young, we come here whenever we are nearby. I think it is more of a novelty and nostalgia for me. The food is above average. Of course, you come for the pea soup. It is pretty filling. Add the seasoning salt for a nice flavor. Otherwise, you will end up with plain pea soup not cooked... More

I have been coming here since I was a kid, and that's a long time. Ike was President and life was good! Andersen's was almost right up there with Disneyland...well, almost. The atmosphere is quaint and rustic and it always leaves you with good memories. The service is always great and I can only comment on two items on the... More

Visiting the Solvang area, my husband and I decided to have lunch at the famous Pea Soup Andersen's where we ordered the soup and salad combo. The soup was very bland and had been pureed out to the point of being way too thick. We were very disappointed and decided that we could check this off our bucket list forever!

I remember seeing the signs traveling I-5 years and years ago for this restaurant. This restaurant has also been featured on TV. We have stopped at the one in Santa Nella but this was a must stop for us too. It's always fun to walk through their unique shop. There's all kinds of treats and fun things that catch your... More

We always try and stop here when we travel north of Orange County. The pea soup is great but they also have a huge menu to choose from. Breakfast all day long! Kid friendly...yes! Service right on! Check out their gift shop as well! Lots of goodies to take home with you!

We have eaten at the restaurant in the past and the food is excellent especially the pea soup. This trip we picked up some gifts, visited the Christmas shop, Picked up a case of soup since it is cheaper than buying in stores, and picked up some great assortment of danish cookies for Easter.

This is a travelers Icon. I recall stopping here in the 1950's with my parents. Up and down over the years, currently up. The Pea Soup is good and the service was very good.
