Can't say enough about Norm's. Have eaten here all my life. Best value and good eats. Big portions and they always have specials. The ranch salad dressing is the best I've ever eaten. Wish I knew what brand it is.

There might be a slight wait to get into Norms but its worth it, The quality of food and service are lovely compared to Dennys. Steaks are good and there hasnt been much that I dont like..except for the split pea soup.. But thats just my taste buds talking.. lol Good place to bring family.

Norm's is a small chain restaurant that is open 24/7. They are crowded for breakfast, so we usually have dinner there. Their Tilapia is an excellent fish dish. You get the whole 9 yards with your entrée: a starch, vegetable, roll, salad, and soup. There is an early bed menu that makes this place "cheap eats" if you arrive before... More

My husband and I stopped in at this location just before 1 PM on Tuesday. The restaurant was pretty full but we were seated quickly. Once we were seated, no one came to our table for 15 minutes. Then a waitress came and said she was going on her break but another waitress would take care of us. It was... More

Norm's is just what you would hope it would be, the classic coffee shop. Everyone is having a great time. The prices are great. And, the food is just what the (proverbial) doctor ordered when you need that little bit of something food snobs might see as average. I assure you, it is not! Peace.
