It's not great value for your money (it's quite expensive for what you get), but if you're looking for a unique and fun experience, and you don't have dinner plans that night, I'd give it a try! You're seated 8 to a table, so you get to know the other travelers you're sitting with. If getting to know strangers isn't your thing, you're not going to enjoy this. The actors/wait staff are fun (even if the one guy forgot his lines a couple times - the other actress kept saving him with jokes), and the audience is involved in the entertainment. The food is pretty good - cod tongues and capelin fish are appetizers, and then there's a buffet for dinner, with a rhubarb cake for dessert (it was rather bland, but then, I like a lot of rhubarb flavour). It's a bit of a tourist trap - but if you're willing to get into the proceedings of the evening, you'll have fun :)

The meal was very disappointing and not a great choice. Cod tongues as an appetizer? The "actors" were very amateurish and the evening was loud and garish. The real issue for my husband and I was that the evening cost us $156.00 and we could definitely have spent the money in a more rewarding way. Not able to recommend.

The staff do a good job of getting everyone into the spirit of the Norse 'thing'. They are enthusiastic and funny.
The food is adequate for such a large group - roast beef, moose gravy, salad, Jigg's dinner, fish & brewis, shrimp fried rice, baked cod and rolls. On the table is cold cod tongues - tasty and dried capelin - good - if you like that sort of thing (they are small and crunchy.) The dessert is supposed to be rhubarb crumble... but it is more like a rhubarb cake - still tasty.
The important factor to determining if you will have a good time, is in the audience participation - if you or some others can pull off some funny accusations/counter accusations (without too many inside jokes) that can get the entire place laughing and table pounding - then it will be fun - noisy, but fun!
So if you are going with a group - be prepared.
It is dark and noisy - so not really good for older people with hearing aids. The seats are not comfortable and people in the back cannot see or hear very well. Might be an idea to get some microphones.
Have a few laughs!

The food was served buffet-style. It was not as good as I was expecting when compared to other meals in Newfoundland. The entertainment was very amateurish and also did not meet my expectations.

I was very disappointed. The food was Newfoundland - Newfoundland stew (pork, potatoes, turnip and carrots), ??? (salt cod and hard biscuits), moose stew, shrimp fried rice, cod bake (with potatoes and white sauce), roast beef. Appertizer was cold cod tongues and desert was a rhubarb pudding. The entertainment was fun but definitely not Norse. The cost with a glass of wine and a glass of beer was $148.30 CDN
