so after waiting nearly 2 yrs to go, we flew in from the midwest for DS`s yale opera friday. thought we`d go to custy`s on sat night, they were closed for winter BUT THEIR WEBSITE STATED THEY WERE OPENING BACK UP FRI, FEB. 11. thought great we`ll go sat. the 12th. drove more than 1 hour up there, and they were closed. had not opened friday. mailbox stuffed to overflowing, parking lot had not been plowed. stopped at a fish market down the road, they said they had noticed, but had no clue! soooooooo dissapointed. drove BACK to north haven red lobster very sad service.but, they were slammed and it was a new kid. did get a comment from someone about nordic lodge being better, but yes they are closed for season too. should we try again at graduation time?

      I've read about that place. It's a little far out, but I may have to try it this Summer.

      Does anyone recall where the original Custy's was located when it was in RI?

        What a blast from the past running into this thread. I didn't know Custy's had moved/opened multiple branches. The original was in North Kingstown on Route 1, Post Rd, walking distance from my house back in the late 70's. At least, that was the only one I've known of.

        I feel your pain. My boyfriend and I went up this past weekend for some Valentine's Day gluttony only to find the place shut down and the parking lot unplowed. I was informed by the people at the hotel we were staying at that they were closed for good, which was much to my surprise as I had made reservations a couple weeks in advance.

        I received an email from Custy's on Monday indicating that due to illness they may never reopen! That would really suck because that was the best buffet EVER!
