Group we were traveling with did dinner here. Interesting experience while in “Viking” territory. A bit of whimsy as the court master asks if anyone wants to charge another for court after dinner. All done in fun so a few laughs were had. Servers did...a great job dressed in period clothing and acting the part. Food was typical Newfoundland food and prepared well, buffet style. The restaurant is a Soddy and from the outside you’d never guess it was a restaurant.More

The venue is in a moss covered banquet hall that I expected to be chilly. It was nice and warm and very clean. The food was quite good, and there was lots to choose from. You were able to try Newfoundland favourites and roast beef...that was incredibly tender. The entertainment was enjoyable and characters likeable. It was fun to get to know the people you were seated with. I saw some poor reviews and wondered if we should go, but for $60 you got a huge meal and 2 hours of laughing and entertainment.More

a very relax and entertaining evening at family style tables. Actors did a great job of reliving the Viking life

Reading some other reviews - and I respect everyone's right to their opinions - I put my thoughts thusly: - If I want professional theatre I'll go to Broadway - If it is fine dining I seek I'll check out France, Italy or Spain -...If I want to experience homespun interactive entertainment with food relative to the region and times I'll check out The Great Viking Feast Dinner Theatre. The costumed staff does a wonderful job interacting with everyone and encouraging participation. They are NOT trained professionals and I appreciated that part as well. It is local talent doing their very best to give customers a great experience. Seating is at banquet style tables of 10 to 12, you sit with complete strangers and get to know each other throughout the evening. We tried the appetizers - well not everyone at my table - but I am up for anything and always adhere to my own house rule of "must try one bite." Fried cod tongues were good but needed lemon and the dried capelin resembled something I give my cats for treats but I will say they were interesting and surprisingly tasty. The buffet dinner was good - not spectacular - but hearty and filling. Again this is a sod hut representing or hoping to represent the era and times. The entertainment is derived mostly from audience participation and some of the dinner goers that evening were on point! I appreciated the reconstruction of the sod hut and artifacts - it felt quite inviting. The certificate presented at the end of the meal was an unexpected bonus and we are very glad we had the experience. I would recommend it.More

This was the most disappointing point of the trip. Could not believe it after all the excellent food and entertainment encountered on the trip in so many other places in Newfoundland. The entertainment was not that good, boring. The audience comes up with the entertainment-which...when you pay for the event is a bit much! Food was not that great either, edible but not that enticing. I have had better food on a camping trip in the woods. Evening dragged and dragged on, kept waiting for it to get better-which it did not. Very amateurish and not worth it.More

I have to say the staff went above and beyond! Very interactive group who tried to include everyone! Food was a buffet of Newfoundland favourites. I wish I could have eaten the whole pot of salt meat. There was roast beef and potatoes for my...picky eater. The show itself is as entertaining as the crowd wants to put forth.. get involved it is a better experience. Don’t complain too much about the price.. How much would you pay for a Chinese buffet at supper. Add 2-3 hours of fun then you have a great evening experience. My kids loved it and honestly so did I.More

We had a fabulous time at this dinner. Our 3 boys ages 15, 11, and 8 loved it! The Viking captain joked w them before dinner and they got to be part of the show. We shared our table with some folks from Alberta who...were really nice to chat with. The food was a good way to sample typical Newfoundland foods and it was buffet style so you did not leave hungry. The actors and staff were very friendly and came over several times to make sure the kids were eating and happy. This was very family friendly and we enjoyed it immensely. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.More

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 :)More

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.More

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!More
