The interior decoration and the menu definitely have a Danish bent, but you will also find some "international" dishes on hand. And while the owner is Danish, you will not have any use for that language when ordering. I had a "Flaeskestag" (Pork steak) with mashed potatoes that was very good, and my wife a Copenhagen Salad, that frankly could... More

We came here for a late dinner. We had the meatballs for an app and when I saw the two different shades of red cabbage,we should've stopped eating there. The meatballs were flavorful but luke warm.

This was originally a school for children to teach their Danish heritage. I still love it. It is fine dinning...and naturally wine wince wine took over the area. You will like it.

I can't remember the name of what I ordered but if you have every been in the south they have a delightful sandwich that I think originated near Louisianna. It is a sub with baby... More

In a town known for its Danish founding this restaurant seems to offer the most authentic Danish Cuisine. Red Viking and Solvang restaurants might be close.

The good - The outside and inside are decorated uber Danish & it's adorable! The bad - The food was horrible! Our danish sausages, danish meatballs and mashed potatoes were served to us cold. Which means they are pre-preparing the food and re-heating it in a microwave. Also, the server disappeared for long amounts of time (However, I don't know... More

They have a 15.00 Buffett, or you could also order from their menu. The food was fair, I wish they had sausage in their Buffet. When I asked the bus- boy what was in there Buffet, he wasn't able to say much.
