We're talking unlimited lobster! And that's just the beginning.
The Nordic is a fourth-generation restaurant in Charlestown, Rhode Island. They are known for their high-end buffet items. Over 100 high-end items like lobster, Alaska king crab legs, Black Angus filet mignon, and prime rib...just to name a few. And all you can eat!
The owners say that people travel all over the country to come to the Nordic. But it's not just the food (don't kid yourself, it's 95% the food) but it's also the view overlooking a picturesque lake flanked by firepits and farm animals.
This is a one-of-a-kind restaurant with a mind-blowing buffet that has been family-owned since 1963. The pricing is just about as mind-blowing as the food offered:
Adults - $125.00 Children -Ages 8-12 $58.00 Ages 3-7 $33.00
125 dollars for dinner? Oh, it's a dinner that you'll talk about for a long time. Just how many lobsters can you eat? But make room for the bacon-wrapped scallops, throw in a couple of Alaskan king crab legs and a milkshake. Yes, milkshakes.
There are a couple of rules. It's a two-hour maximum dining experience. So, rip those lobsters apart or stick to the lobster mac and cheese. There is also a dress. 'Proper casual attire is required.' No tank tops or muscle shirts for men and ladies they say keep the bare midriff for the beach. Jeans, shorts, and sneakers are just fine.
Okay, who's heading to Rhode Island?
