ADORABLE place!

What a fun place! Ginormous candy selection, fudge, ice cream, magazines galore, and a burger grill. The old-fashioned milkshakes were delicious! We actually had soup instead of burgers and it was home-made and very yummy. I wish we had a cute place like this in my town!

After reading about it on here, I was excited to give this place a try. My boyfriend got a hamburger and I the pork sandwich. It was disappointing that they didn't have any lettuce or tomato in the restaurant. We could only have pickle and onion on our sandwiches- both which were really bland and dry. The sodas were not...

The staff and atmosphere are exceptional. The burgers and fries are amazing, but you'll need to order at least a double if you want to get even somewhat full. The ice cream is average- a bit overpriced for what you get if you ask me. Overall Norm's provides a tasty meal in a friendly atmosphere. I recommend it to everyone... More

Norm's News is a Kalispell staple. It's been almost 70 years since I've been in there as a 12 year-old. But, it's still there! I visited my aunt's family in the mid-'40s. They lived out near Kila & once a week we went into town for movies & other recreation. I suppose my aunt & uncle had other business. We... More

I recommend the milk shakes ! But the burgers are dry and the fries are okay . Go here for unusual candy that you can't get anywhere else anymore . Great for kids and out of town friends .

Stopped in for the first time and wish we had done it years ago. I will be returning every time I am in town! Best malted milkshake around , root beer float and blueberry shake all equally delicious. Basic burgers and fries all delicious. Candy store too. You will feel like you stepped into the past. There is a reason... More

This place is right out of the old days (including an over 100 years old old school icecream bar (I think that is what they are called) they only serve basic hamburgers (can't even get any tomato lol just traditional stuff) and basic fries. it is also a bulk candy and magazine shop. It is one of the more unique... More
