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. They have too many great... More

I can't believe we've never tried this place, since it's only a few minutes away. People drive and even fly for hours just to come here. The reason they make the journey is simple: top quality food, as much as you can eat in two hours. At $91 per adult, it's not cheap, but the New England lobsters, Alaskan crabs,... More

We traveled 2 hours tonight to have dinner at Nordic. Food and staff was top shelf. Lobster, shrimp and prime rib was awsome. Oysters and muscles were fair. Vegetables and deserts looked good but I'm too full to try. House merlot was just okay.
