We stayed in Solvang one night during our central coast trip and this was the obvious choice for dinner, first thing I noticed when I walked in was that Double Jack and Abacus were on tap, that won me over right there, place was huge and looked a production brewery on one side even though it is not, probably lmost as big as the actual Paso facility now that I think about it, atmosphere is cool with a big bar area including a dart board, dining area right next to the kitchen, bunch of labeled mugs around which made me think they have some kind of club where the locals get their own glass and have it filled for a discounted rate, place was wide open and clean, one of the nicer dinners I have had in a beer establishment in some time, people working were nice but a little confused when I asked questions, employees seem to be having a good time which is a good thing, other beers available were pretty standard inlcuding pale, double barrel, porter, hefeweizen, hemp ale, etc., my Double Jack came in an oversized wine glass for six dollars and did not have any more than six ounces in it, was not too stoked on that after having full pints of it for a dollar less back home beforehand, food was good but expensive, fried chicken special was seventeen dollars and came with a reasonable amount of mashed potatoes with tasty gravy, small amount of watermelon and corn on the cob, overall it was a fun experience and glad we went, would go back in the future

The food is above average and though a bit pricey. I haven't had anything bad off of the menu yet. Firestone wine is always a good choice, though they have a good selection of other brands. The beer is always great, of course.
The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you get your money's worth.
**Barrelworks is an across the board 5.00. My only complaint about it is that I wish they were open more often than a few hours on the weekend.
