This is an iconic place to come to eat, and eat, and eat if you want. VERY popular, even brining in patrons by the bus loads. If you want to skip the all you can eat lobster and steak, go to the outdoor seating by the pond and order off the appetizers menu, worth the evening by the pond and... More

The food was great. The staff was great. The scenery was great. We were lucky because we got in before the heavy traffic so we were able to get in eat and get out. It's definitely worth the money. The seafood was fresh and so good. Me and my GF are definitely coming back.

Visited Nordic Lodge this afternoon. Had not made the drive from Boston to Nordic Lodge in about 10 years. Opened at three, we were seated by 3:10 as we arrived 1 hour early and put our name on the wait list. Plenty of time to relax by the hammocks overlooking the pond. Like that a waitress comes around asking you... More

Food was amazing. We went mainly for the lobster but tried some of the other stuff too. Food definitely exceeded my expectations. I've never eaten so much lobster at one time. Despite the large number of guests (including a tour bus party) the staff did an amazing job directing traffic. Wait on the lobster line was minimal at worst and... More

I can't describe how great the Nordic Lodge is. But I will try. All the lobsters, prime rib, clam chowder oysters, clams, mouth watering desserts, etc. The prime rib melts in your mouth. The people who ran the buffet were, more than friendly, I felt I knew them all my life. The grounds are impeccable sitting on a 69 acre... More

Let me start by saying that this is a restaurant that is more of a tourist attraction not a local one because of the popular Viking style all-you-can-eat buffet inside. Some friends told me that a new live music area was placed out back near the volleyball pit. I was in. The atmosphere was nice with the pond, the pleasant... More

We are very sorry to hear that the service was not up to par. We pride ourselves on impeccable service so this is definitely not the norm here. As mentioned, offering lakeside apps is new to us and we know that there are areas to improve so thank you for sharing. Please give us another chance and guarantee you will... More

Been coming here since the 90's although at $90 a shot only come once every few years instead of 2-3x a year. Variety of food is excellent, taste excellent, service excellent. You really need to have someone who is not eating drive you there as when you eat all that food and the amazing deserts, you just want to sleep... More

This place is just oozing with great atmosphere... Every staff member we encountered had a smile on their face and seemed be happy to be at work. The grounds are nice, with hammocks and chairs scattered around the property and a couple of family games to help kill the time while you wait. I'd recommend coming earlier as the wait... More

We were coming from Boston which is an 90 min drive. When we arrived we were given a pager and was told it would be a 30 minute wait. Grabbed a drink at the bar and explored the grounds. They have lots of table and chairs and hammocks to relax in while you wait. Wonderful view of a lake with... More
