Great Atmosphere and friendly service! Love the food and drink selection. Awesome specials and happy hour portions are larger than expected! Truly a local family run business which anyone can appreciate. I recommend the Prime-Rib however their chicken is amazing, always fresh and never frozen!

The food is great and service was excellent. This place was recommended to us a number of times and we have now been there twice. I would highly recommend this place. It has a very good menu.

This unexpected find (don't be skeptical... Yes, restaurants with a distinct -- and not franchise -- personality CAN exist in a strip mall!) is one we had put off for some time as we were unsure about the name and the location. Now, we'll be regulars. Rest assured. There is space, a menu, and decor designed for all ages, tastes,... More

They made the bar bigger and added 20 new taps. This place just moved up 10 spots in my book. Look for the owners, they walk around and help often. Great people, great place! Loved it!!

Nothing exceptional, but the ptty melt, soup and salad were good. The wait staff was efficient. Almost as quick and definately better than fast food.

Went to Norman Quacks for the 1st (and last) time last Friday. The place was busy so we had a cocktail at the bar. The pours were absolutely pathetic. I'm not a big drinker and don't like strong drinks but when you order a brandy water and the drink is almost clear you feel a bit ripped off. When they... More

Service was excellent from the time we stepped through the door. Good free munchies. We got next to a large table by the door so it was hard to hear each other, and we saw tables and booths that were empty that we would have choose to sit at. Food was good-yummy sweet potato fries. Would try it again but... More

The food is strong compared to most chain places. The beer selection is phenomenal, especially considering the distance from the Twin Cities. Great craft brews in the fridge and on tap. But mostly, you go here for the people. Met the owners and staff a few years ago on a cold winter night....been going there ever since.
