My boyfriend and I frequent this location, and every time there is some kind of amazing special, whether for lunch or dinner, it doesn't matter. We always say we aren't that hungry, until we get there. Every time service is great, and the food is fantastic. Well done. Best burgers in town as well.

This is a popular venue and the food is always good. The decor is Marlyn Munro. It is a cozy atmosphere has been in the city for many years.

The girls were looking for a new place to meet for lunch and we found this. It was like sitting in Dads rec room. The food was great and the prices very reasonable. I had the burger and it was perfect. Cook just right..you had to hold it with two hands....and really had to fight to eat the whole thing.....but... More

Had lunch at Norma Jeans this week and was very disappointed. I had a Reuben sandwich which consisted of soggy toasted bread, a small amount of meat and a limp salad. My friend had a Caesar salad with chicken which arrived without dressing and topped with a few tiny pieces of chicken. It was not great. The prices were high... More

Norma Jean's always has excellent food. At this visit we were not disappointed and our waitress was very friendly as well. I had the diablo sandwich, which they warned me was quite spicy but I found it very mild (still delicious). The house white wine is really good. Definitely will get a reservation next time, as we were only able... More

Very friendly staff (Colette helped us) and excellent food lead to an overall wonderful dining experience. The restaurant is very quaint. It is a local bistro with a rustic ambiance. We had steak, artic char and fish and chips. All were very good. We will be back for more.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us and we were very disappointed. The rib eye was very tough and stringy.. The veggies were under cooked (eggplant was raw!). Our Beer was served in a hot (from the dishwasher?) pitcher. When we complained the waitress did nothing to fix the problem. Service was poor with callbacks too late to make a... More

We enjoyed a hearty meal at Norma Jean's tonight. The food was very tasty and the service was friendly and quick even though the restaurant was full. We would recommend this cosy eatery in Owen Sound.

Everything is made fresh, so you can adjust the dishes to your taste. My daughter has requested to make her seafood pasta non-spicy. So the wait time is also a bit long, for us was 45 minutes. The seafood was good with contemporary twist. I liked the seafood crepe, rich in cheese. Meat was a little bit dry. This is... More
