After driving considerable mileage to eat dinner at Norm's, our family was excited to try a nice Friday night meal. We quickly found a table to claim (there is no hostess--it is a seat yourself situation). I walked up to one of the waitresses and asked for a high chair for our almost 2 year old son. I was told...

It seems like we forget about this out of the way gem... first time visiting in over a year and it was ANAZING!!! Parmesan crust cod and deep fried shrimp were a hit. And best of all Norm is a goofball but definitely goes above and beyond for his customers!

Stopped in this year for the first time and been back again and again. If you're looking for a sit-down meal with a waitress, don't bother. As they say "this is not a supper club"! It's a bar with food, but great food. You need to place your food and drink order at the bar, but they will deliver it... More

A great "up north" type of atmosphere with a view of Lake Koshkonong. We've had many visits to Norm's including groups of 40 in the side room (sales staff meetings and Christmas party's). There is a taxidermy'd critter in every nook and cranny. The food is good and the atmosphere very uniqe.

Typical bar. Sat at a table, but still had to go up to the bar and order your food. They at least brought it to your table. The food was nothing special. Looked like a nice patio, but it was too cold to sit outside. A place to stop at after boating. Wouldn't go back again.

My husband & I were out for a nice Sunday drive and we stopped at a couple of bars to check them out and decided to eat at Norm's. The place had 12 people including us and a band outside that no one was listening to. It was cool and windy. We had 1 cold beer & asked for a... More

Popular with boaters and riders, Norm's is a fun destination with LOTS of local color. The Northwoods fishing, hunting and trapping memorabilia is extensive. There are also some interesting displays of native American arrowheads which were discovered nearby. We stopped in for drinks only. There is a nice deck with a view of the lake.

The name fits! This place is out of the way but what a beautiful location - especially on a sunny day when you can sit on the deck. Views of one of Wisconsin's biggest Lakes. The food is WONDERFUL! Their BLT has thick and flavorful bacon, crisp lettuce and fresh tomatoes. Add Texas Toast and you get one of the... More
