Great food. (Hotdogs are my fave!) Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Open late nights (some nights) --- which is perfect for us! (We're night owls.) Felt like home. If you're in the area, definitely stop in! Highly recommend.

I loved this Diner. I was in the service here in Groton, and I went to Norms every week. Felt like I was home. There was a southern belle from Georgia that worked there as a waitress and made me Grits. Love it. Very comforting here.

Good was good and hot. A little bit of a wait. Coffee was hot and strong. I had pancakes, bacon, eggs, homefries. Sometimes it good to eat with the locals. They know a decent place to have breakfast

Stopped here whilst heading out for a drive (based in Foxwoods). I enjoyed my breakfast, had chicken and biscuits with a side of grits. Couple of the others had skillets which they said were ok-good. For the price though - who can complain?!?

I stopped through here on my way from Maryland to Cape Cod and I liked the idea of a place where the locals eat (thanks TA) and it was close to my hotel. I love that it's an authentic, old-school diner, a little dilapidated, in an unpretentious neighborhood that doesn't scream trendy, touristy or overpriced. Service was friendly and attentive,...

Decided to have breakfast a local diner and Norm's was a great choice. Typical diner stuff....fun staff, good choices and relaxed atmosphere. Good choice of food, coffee good and strong. Booth seating needs to be repaired as almost all had tears or close to worn out.

For years, when I visit the O'Neill Theatre Center, we end up late night and all night at Norm's Diner. I'll admit that this is a location we hit after long nights drinking; that's for sure, but that hasn't really tempered my affection for the place. Most of the dishes are just excellent, but I do love the breakfast grinders... More

I had pancake sandwich. Two chewy pancakes, eggs and bacon. The eggs were excellent. Bacon okay. Pancakes - out of the freezer? No atmosphere. Cramped seating. Huge wait for food at lunch. Meatloaf grinders and fries was massive, but looked good.
