best buffet ever

You will never see a buffet like this anywhere. Quality of food and variety is great. there is something for everyone. But if you do not like lobster do not go because you will not get your moneys worth. it is $91.00 per person including tax and tip.

As a rhode islanda been meaning to visit this iconic establishment for last 20 years. Finally-we made it this past weekend. Beautiful grounds to wait for your table. Be prepared to be treated like cattle--herded to table and herded to buffets. Experience started poorly. Hostess asked us how many was in our party and I told her three-this was also... More

There are no words in my culinary vocabulary to describe this unforgettable experience! Pound for pound you will never beat the value of this Sea Food and Steak Buffet anywhere in the country!

Once we entered the Nordic I knew we were in for a night of excessive eating. It was like a crack house for excellent food. Every kind of seafood was available and it was all top shelve food. The grilling section was absolutely amazing. The food was so good that I didn't care that I"d probably get the gout by... More

My husband has wanted to visit here for over 10 years and we finally made the trip. It was $91 each, but it was a quality dinner. There were whole lobsters and crab legs, scallops, shrimp, mussels, oysters, clams, etc. Many of these items were offered multiple ways: raw, steamed, broiled, fried and in salads. The grill room had fillet... More

I heard a lot and read a lot about this place, but never was here, until I decided to take my wife here for our anniversary. At first I thought at $91.00 a person it's not cheap, but everything taken into consideration, it was well worth the price. Food was great. They offer any seafood that you can think of,... More

Very tough to evaluate as it's like nothing you'll ever experience. For one, the lobster is all you can eat. Personally, that's just about ALL I dine upon when I visit once every few years. This time the lobster was perfectly cooked, the naked stuffed shrimp was excellent too. I also had a small bite of the filet mignon, but... More

Food fresh and well worth $91 per person! Even tho 2 hrs is the maximum time allowed you can take a break and enjoy the mini farm and outdoors where you can relax on the hammock or sit by the bonfire.
