overly priced menu, waitress was rude, menu was dirty, very noisy, waited and waited for a server for quite awhile and the place was not full. We just got up and left as we were tired of waiting. Will not go back.

I love Norma Jean's for many reasons: the servers are fun and efficient, food is always fresh and great-tasting, and it is great value for money. make sure you reserve a table as the restaurant is small and popular. I recommend their salads.
