We stopped by here for lunch with some Montana relatives and a couple of their kids. The place has been around FOREVER and is a Kalispell institution. Way back when - before "the internets" and all related modern technology, Norm's was the place to gather and get the news of the day. Back then, you had Norm's and the library.... More

A must visit local place that serves a great selection of burgers and has an old fashioned soda bar. Includes a traditional cany store with lots of stuff only those of us born in the 1960's would remember.

It's hard to get an old fashioned soda, but you can at Norm's just like the one's I used to get as a kid (a long time ago). You can sit at a table, but we preferred to sit at the counter.

We did not sit down in here, but it was a fun stop! This place is like going back in time. They have oodles of magazines, tables and chairs in the back and lots of candy in the front. The candy was the old kinds that would bring back fond memories for older folks and would be something completely unheard... More

Great little spot. Nice spot in downtown with easy parking. Service was a bit slow but we weren't in a rush. Good food, yummy ice cream, great price. Family of 5 (3 young kids shared 2 meals) and total was around 45 with desserts for all. 💜

What a quaint and fun little shop. We went in to look at the candy selection and stayed because of the smell of the food. Awesome hand-pressed burgers and a basket of fresh fries to die for. To top off our meal we shared a brown cow float. What a fun dining experience and delicious food. Oh, about that candy,... More

Let me start by saying the food is better than average. You may ask yourself, why the 5/5 then Joe? Because, all of the extras add on quickly to why this place is great. It's got that great old time soda fountain feel, the service is super nice, the prices are borderline letting you steal from them. Then after you're... More

Great little institution on Main Street where you can grab a bite to eat from an old fashioned diner grill (including flavoured sodas). The burgers and fries are basic, very good and cheap. There is plenty of candy on offer as well - all kinds of classic fare and bulk candy bins.
