Good Burgers

We were in the mood for burgers, the hotel recommended we come here and it hit the spot! We also tried the crab tots which were good.

We stopped in for a glass of wine based on recommendation form innkeeper. Great place, a little outside of downtown so no packed. Bartender very knowledgable about wine.

This is a great spot for a group and it has something fresh for everyone. Harp on tap along with many others local beers. Sandwiches, burgers of course, but pay attention to the rolling chalkboard specials list--it's 6 feet long so you can't miss it. Good wine list and full bar. You'll be back for sure.

We had a nice time of St Patricks Day dinner. We got a table with only a 10 minute wait. Outside area was very nice and waitress was prompt. We had good service. It was not memorable but a nice evening

If you don't have a reservation, you'll have to wait a while like we did. But they have a bar area where you can have a drink and review the menu. We even had an appetizer while waiting. There is a wide variety of food to choose from. Everything on other tables looked great. Servings are a the large size.... More

We came out of an early movie, looking for a place to have a late lunch, and came upon Norman Rose Tavern. Neither of us had ever eaten here before, but it looked very nice from the outside so we just took a chance. Good choice! Both of us were very pleased with our lunches. My friend had the grilled...

What a great place for a Sunday afternoon lunch in Napa. We ate out on the enclosed patio and had a variety of meals among us but the burgers got the prize. Outstanding food, attentive & friendly service (good job, Daniel) and good value. We highly recommend "Norman Rose".

So here we go.....our staff met at Norman Rose after school last week with a GREAT turnout. The place was pretty empty at 3:30, especially at the bar so all seemed great. I am not a sophisticated drinker, I should have just ordered a soda. I don't like beer or wine....but I like a sweet mixed drink once in awhile.... More

Food is always fresh and amazing. They seem to always be innovating and redesigning their menu. I have been taking clients here for the past couple years. Can not beat the location or easy parking. Keep up the great work!

There was not one item our group of 12 ordered that wasn't a hit! The special was mini corn dogs...a definite show stopper! A Napa must!
