This restaurant may not look like anything but the owners and food are just amazing. Very friendly atmosphere, will help you find your way around to helping us with much needed wine glasses. Jason ( I hope I'm right with his name) was very friendly and a good person. Thank you for your hospitality and we will certainly visit Norma... More

We had dinner at the Norma Jean´s. The food was quite fatty but it tasted good. The chief needed to go into the basement quite often to pick up some food. As the basement door was right next to our table that was pretty much getting on our nerves. All in all it was ok.

We stopped in here after shopping. My husband and I both enjoyed our food....attractively presented, well cooked and seasoned with decent portions for a decent price. The place was not half full and, although asked if we needed another wine or beer (on her way by) were never checked on about how our meal was and never had a water... More

We had dinner at this small restaurant .... it's a tiny place. In addition to the menu they had 2 app specials & 3 entree specials. The seafood chowder (soup IMO) could be a meal in itself and it was delicious. The soup of the day was roasted red pepper/tomato and it was tasty, a bit spicy. The rack of... More

After spending the morning roaming around Keady Market we decided a good sit down lunch was in order, lots of good food smells at the market but it was a cold day in July and we needed more. Norma Jean's Bistro does not disappoint, this was only our second visit. After scanning the menu and having Annie our server tell... More

We flew into Toronto then drove to Owen Sound arriving late evening. Following recommendations we went to Norma Jean's Bistro and found it just before closing. We were welcomed in and the wait staff were extremely helpful with our ordering. I had the Blackened Arctic Char, (last piece left), and my wife ordered a Grilled Salmon Salad. Both meals were...

We were in Owen Sound for dinner and followed the recommendations to this spot- friendly service, fit us in without a reservation just before the dinner rush, and the special burger was delicious, prices also good!
