Norma Jeans has a new Steak House on the By pass in Venice, Fl. It has been open for about a month and we thought we would give it a try. Well we were all pleasantly surprised at the nice furnishings. The menu is extensive. We started out with their lobster bisque. It was very good, served hot with large... More

I have been to this place 5 or 6 times in the past year. Ok food, fair pricing and very dog friendly. I have a Service Dog who can go anywhere, but tonight we wanted to take our other dog out as well. We chose Norma Jeans as it is a sports bar and we can watch the NHL playoffs... More

Wednesday is Taco special day $5.99 for two soft shell tacos. Very good with good service. Other specials, Cobb salad with chicken and Philly beef wrap were also good.

This has long been a favorite of ours and our neighbors at our condos. For years we have eaten there 1-2 times a week, but no more (a total of about 10-12 couples, but generally 8-12 of us there on any given night). Not saying we'll never go back, but nowhere near as much. We often go Monday's-burgers, Tuesday-wings, and/or... More

Norma Jean's in Venice has expanded and now has a Steak house right next door, and it is really good. Not as casual as the original Norma Jeans. The food was awesome and the waitstaff couldn't do enough for us.

This place continues to disappoint . Went back after a long sabbatical. Nothing changed. Much better places in Venice

Dropped in with a large group for food and drinks after a Saturday golf outing. The place was very busy, but we were able to get seated together at one of the long tables. Huge menu, giant portions, and low prices. Limited selection of beers and wines. Service friendly but slow as the place was packed. Also quite noisy.

Went in to what we thought was a popular spot for a quick bite to eat and a drink after the movies. 9:30. Place nearly empty. Employees inattentive. We sat at the bar. Friendly bartender assured us kitchen was still open. We ordered burgers and they must have been grilled earlier then microwaved. Disgusting. Sent back and left. Will never... More

I wanted to try something new so we stopped to try Norma Jean's which is actually two different restaurants. I wasn't in the mood for the fancier fare, so we tried the sport bar side.
