There is no place like it! The music needs to be tweaked, but other than that no complaints. I've been going since the early "90's" when it was $39.99. Every year it goes up in price. But If you love seafood this is the place to bring your appetite!

We try to choose music that appeals to the majority of diners and we are happy to change the channel if a request is made . Regarding price, we do not go up every year. In fact, this year the price is the same as... More

Being a real lobster lover, my wife found the Nordic Lodge on the internet. We decided to dine there when we took our vacation to New England. We were very happy that we did. It is located in a beautiful setting in the woods on a lake. The food is excellent. I think that the greatest attribute of the Nordic... More

Thanks so much for sharing. The details are much appreciated. We really do strive to make the Nordic outstanding from the parking lot on arrival as you mentioned all the way through to the final bites and then departure. Many choices, many friendly people and beautiful surroundings. You covered it all. Thank you. More

I have eaten 106 meals at the Nordic lodge since 1992. I now go twice a year three meals each time. I go for the weekend, stay in Westerly Rhode Island and eat at the Nordic Lodge Friday Night, Saturday Night and Sunday Afternoon. You cannot eat the Nordic Lodge all-you-can-eat buffet in one meal.
