All You Can Eat Lobster? Newport, Jamestown, Boston areas...

We are traveling to Newport, Jamestown, & Boston at the end of July. We'd like to find an "All You Can Eat Lobster" buffet or restaurant. Does anyone have any suggestions?

My boyfriend went to The Nordic Lodge in Charlestown years ago and remembers their All You Can Eat Lobster buffet. Apparently they still have the buffet (at the tune of $82 PER PERSON! YIKES!)... Also the restaurant didn't get great reviews.

Any suggestions for good restaurants would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much!

The only place that I am aware of is the Nordic Lodge. There is another place in CT, not far from the RI border, called Custy's. I have never been there. Their prices are similar to the Nordic Lodge. My suggestion would be to get several lobsters and sides at any of numerous seafood places in the Newport or surrounding area. Champlin's in Galilee is good but there are many other good places around. Even if you get two or three lobsters each, which is a ton, you will pay far less than what the Nordic Lodge is charging. Alternatively, you could buy lobsters off the boat in either Gaililee or Newport if you can find them. This would work if you were staying at a house or somewhere you could cook the lobster.

i totally agree about going to a nice restaurant and spending the extra $$ there... or buying lobsters and doing it ourselves... but my boyfriend loves buffets and has his heart set on an "all you can eat". i personally won't ever be able to eat my money's worth! haha!

what about all you can eat seafood buffets or really nice seafood restaurants in those towns?

thanks so much for your help!

All you can eat isn't as pop around here as other parts of the states, especially with seafood. There's such a premium put on the $ of seafood around here, especially during the high season. THere is a Lobster Pot restaurant in Bristol, maybe they do, I don't think so though.

Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut had a Sunday Brunch with lobster tails, I think, it's been years and I'm not sure they do it any longer. Sunday Brunch at one of the big Hotels in Boston for the buffet experience maybe, but all you can eat lobster will be pricey. Personally I enjoy my lobster more at home where I can make a complete mess, eat with my fingers and get buttery fingerprints all over my beer bottle.

I actually enjoy The Nordic Lodge. Heck yeah it's pricey, but it's all you can eat lobster. I look at it this way - most restaurants are going to charge you between $20-40 for (one) lobster. If I go to the Nordic and eat my usual 6-8 lobsters in the 2 hour time limit then I've done well. The key to the Nordic is don't eat anything else but lobster. That buffett is loaded with items to get you full. Stay away. You're paying $80 so stick to the star attraction - the lobster!!!
