This used to be a decent place for inexpensive, good food. I don't know if ownership or management changed, but the wait staff no longer seems interested or available. Service has gone downhill. There's more game playing than food service going on here and I don't want any part of it.

Norm's is open 24/7. They have wonderful food, great service, clean place , and its a nice place to enjoy your meal for a reasonable price.

Good atmosphere and service. Americana at it's best. Good menu with rotating specials. Always a crowd - plan ahead.

Came solo on a Tuesday night for Dinner. Was serviced by Raelene. Great food! Has their $11.99 steak and shrimp special with soup and salad. Food was fantastic. Raelene was excellent! Everything was timed perfectly. If you eat here ask to be seated in Raelene's section. Tip her well. My only question to Norm's is when are you coming to... More

We came here because it was walking distance from our hotel. Serving staff are very friendly, portions were large - it is a challenge to finish all the food on the breakfast plates! We noticed that several local residents were regulars each morning.

A friend and I wanted to eat at a local restaurant or chain and happened to drive past Norm's. So stopped. The service was excellent as were my eggs and toast (which was perfect, unlike many restaurants.) The stake was very good, but the hash browns were average, which resulted in a reluctant star being knocked off. Rare for me,... More

The food is very good and tasty. It is a real bargain. You will be served fast by a friendly staff. Don't sit in the back or you might be forgotten. We have always gotten good sercvice in the front.

Hubs and I have eaten in this location before. Being in the area and hungry, we decided to stop in and have breakfast. We sat at the bar by the bathrooms and Amanda was our waitress. She was a good waitress. We each ordered the breakfast of 2 eggs, 2 sausage, 2 bacon, hash browns and 2 pancakes. We both... More

Norm's has always been a great value for the money, whether breakfast, lunch, or dinner. One of my favorites is "Soup, Salad, and Dessert" for about $7.29; you can choose any dessert except one on the menu. I always get heated dutch apple pie a la mode. With the prices of beef steaks in the market, they pack a great... More
