All-you-can-eat crab restaurant in region?

Kaykun Jun 5, 2009 07:46 PM

My parents love shellfish, especially crab, and they have heard from somewhere that Rhode Island area has good crab restaurant.

I don't know if it was strictly buffet-style they were asking for. But if it serves good amount of crab in New England region, I'll take it.

Please include the restaurant name, the address (or roughabout), and the price.

Thank you for your help.

    You might want to try the Nordic Lodge.

        Nordic Lodge, 2009 PRICING: Adults - $80.00
        Soft Drinks, Tax and Gratuity Included = Maximium Dining 2 Hours (verbatim)

        Custy's: Adults $69.95 Tax and gratuity not included. I did not note any mention of a time limit.

        For information porpoises only. I do not endorse buffets. Curious.

        You don't mention what kind of crab you are seeking which would be helpful. Assuming it is king crab, there are two total pig out buffet restaurants in the RI area, the Nordic Lodge as mentioned below and Custy's , just over the line in Ct just south of the Mashantuc Pequot casino...also owned by them now as I understand. Both have web sites but range at about $70 per person for all you can stuff down your throats in 2 hours or so. Not a place I would consider on either count. Lobsters are also featured..again, all you can eat in the allotted time frame.

          Flo's on Thursdays in Middletown (just over the Newport line) has all you can eat crab (not sure if it's snow or King) for like $11.95

            Definitely Flo's. Skip Nordic. For the current price of $80 p/p and a 2 hour all you can stuff down your gullet, I'd rather go elsewhere. I agree with Scargod on buffets.
