The Nordic Lodge in Rhode Island is literally out of this world. It is very nestled and secluded in the mountains and the hills of Rhode Island. It's about a three and a half hour drive to get there to this restaurant, give or take an hour. It is a very picturesque excursion. One must travel there during the early daytime, because you don't want to get caught out there at night with the wild life. Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh My!!!

The food at the Nordic Lodge in Rhode Island is fabulous. All of the seafood that you can eat and filet minion too! They allow you to select your very own full lobster and King crab legs. All you can eat. Very delicious. If you are into eating seafood with gusto and relish, I suggest this place. It's not every day that one gets to eat as many full lobsters, King crab legs, oysters, shrimps, scallops, and filet minion that one wants. There was lots of variety of desserts as well: NY Style Cheese Cake, brownies, pies, cookies, cakes, ice cream, etc. Just make sure that you go to this restaurant on an empty stomach, so that you may sample all of the food. It's a nice day trip.

This establishment was great! The land around the restaurant was something I. Ever experienced being a New Yorker. No place has a huge area to sit around and wait for their table. You can relax by a small pond on a hammock, near the swamp looking area, check out the animals, play corn hole/volleyball, sit by a fire pit near the water or lounge near the big pond.

Other than that when you eat you must must must eat slowly and not over eat so fast. You got two hours so make them count! Plus drink water so it digests it fast to make more room lol. My favorite part was the steaks. Never could I ever get two filet mignons and countless outher stuff for the price. The price is big but for what you eat it's so worth it. Think of it like this, in New York a single filet mignon dinner with a lobster tail costs 40-50 bucks easy per person. With this place you can double or triple that for the single 96 per person which includes drinks (water and soft drinks) and tip as well.

If you love sea food then this is the place! I ain't a lobster lover or crab and I'm very picky but the shrimps were awesome and hand made. If I ever had to complain about this place I would suggest adding grilled chicken with the steaks and possibly other seafood like bass, shark, or even flounder. Plus the middle bar could use some more side dishes and such. I mean it don't matter much cause of the amount of food you can eat but for those picky eaters it could lighten the disappointment for them. I would also maybe include burgers as well for those who aren't seafood lovers either.

But please don't freak out! If your not a huge seafood fan or lobster fan do not worry! Eat the steaks, salads, sides and some friend chicken! They also have one hell of a dessert bar! The ice cream is amazing! The toppings and the cakes they have is mouth watering. Unfortunately you may be too full to enjoy all the desserts so nip pick lol. You will not be disappointed what so ever. Thanks Nordic lodge I will probably come back for more! >:)

This restaurant is a real trip. Feels a bit chaotic at first then you realize it is quite organized. Friendly staff (Hannah was a superb server), loud and fun. Buffet has every seafood item native to the area--including lobster, crab and oysters. We spent 2.5 hours devouring two lobsters, 2 dozen raw oysters, scallops, clams, snow crab, prime rib. Lots of salads we never even got close to. Delicious deserts. Cost is $96/person and is worth the money (15 years ago it cost about half as much). Highly recommended.

This is THE place for seafood and steak lovers...heck this is the place for food lovers of all kinds!
It is not just a typical large buffet...no, no, it's a large quality buffet! This is what makes this place so great! Not to mention the friendly and courteous staff!
Let's face it there are a lot of buffets around BUT...not all give you top of the line meat or seafood. If your in the area, try Nordic Lodge, if you love seafood, you just gotta go, you will be glad you did.The $96 price tag may seem like a lot but once you go...you will be glad you did.
