We saw the Nordic Inn on the Travel Channel a few years ago and it was always in the back of our minds to visit. We love weird, off the beaten path types of experiences. I've read all of the reviews and all of them have at least a grain of truth. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic evening or a chance to catch up with long lost relatives, this is not the place for you. Steinarr is the entertainment and the center of attention. That said; I did not find him to be rude at all. He was a very gracious and involved host. His helpers were also very attentive. The humor was raunchy and ribald, but this is meant for adults. When I called to make the reservation, Steinarr was upfront about the entertainment offered. We stayed in Odin’s loft which had its own set of stocks and was decorated with weapons and painted to look like you were surrounded by sea. Since it is a loft, the bed area is open to the rest of the inn. There is a very large bathroom for changing, so I felt I had enough privacy. My husband and I went to bed a little earlier than the other guests (around 12:30), but when I asked people to be a little quieter, Steinarr immediately moved the rest of the party downstairs. He was very respectful of our space. I would stay in the loft again, but if you are shy, another room may be more to your liking. The food was delicious and plentiful. The appetizers were large trays of veggies with dip, smoked fish, cheese and bread and crab dip. I could have made a meal of the appetizers. I think the appetizers were served around 7 and we played a few games and then went down for the feast. Again, the food was delicious and plentiful. There was a lot of toasting and joking between courses and we finished eating around 11. It sounds late, but believe me, there is so much food you want a lot of time to digest it all. My water glass was never empty. Breakfast was also delicious. Overall, the inn was very clean and comfortable and we had a fantastic experience. We would love to back with a group.
