The Only Sod Covered Restaurant in North America

viking coupleOur building is a replica of the 1000 year old Leif Erickson's home at nearby L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site.     "Leifsburdir" is covered in sod and nearly invisible from the outside, but inside it takes you back to 1000 AD when the Vikings roamed our land.   You are sure to enjoy the setting at Leifsburdir.

The Dining Experience

Our main event is The Great Viking Feast at Leifsburdir and is offered to the general public and to tour groups throughout the summer season. While we do not run the Viking Feast every evening we do endeavor to run at least six nights per week for July and August while less frequently during June and September. We will host the Viking Feast for any group over 20 people anytime.  

Fun, Food and Feuds

Merry VikingsWhile the setting at Leifsburdir sets the tone for your experience, it is our merry band of Vikings that make your stay with us a memorable one. Whether it is a Viking lunch, an early Viking Dinner or The Great Viking Feast Dinner Theatre our staff will make your stay an enjoyable one.     

Starting at 7:00PM most evenings during the summer, the Great Viking Feast provides a humorous look at Viking life and at ourselves. Our merry band of Vikings let you steal the show at our Viking court after feasting with your friends to some of the best food you are likely to encounter anywhere during your travels. It pays to prepare for a little fun with your traveling companions.
