Perfect example of a local, non-chain eatery. Great atmosphere, daily specials. If you like fish and are hungry "Norman's Signature Walleye Sandwich" A must stop if you are looking for good eats in the area.

We went on a whim late Friday night. We were served fast and got our food quickly. The menu is definitely overwhelming. And their food did not taste good. We both ordered burgers and they were so great the buns fell apart. Very disappointing.
