Wait staff very friendly and courteous. Food is awesome! Steaks are always right on as far as redness. Won't be disappointed with any choice you decide on.

We've eaten here several times and have always had good food. They have a nice variety of food & drinks. Also a fun beer selection. Also have the best kids menu that I've seen.

Friendly services staffs. Great foods although I wish the onion ring could stand to cook a little more longer.

We had very good service, both at the bar while waiting for our table, and in the restaurant. Food was delicious, served pretty quick, with warm ciabatta bread and yummy butter! They have a very good variety on their menu, something for everyone! I recommend this restaurant!

We've eaten here three times, and this is consistently true: the wait staff are friendly and attentive, the atmosphere is fun and eclectic, but the food just isn't that great. Go for drinks--they always have great prices and specials on beer and wine.

Great quality food and very nice beer selection. We've not been disappointed the many times we've gone there. They've got a nice, reasonably priced lunch selection too. Service has been consistently good too.

From the time we walked in, until we left, the service was outstanding. 2 for 1 beers all day, huge portions, reasonable prices, and great food. Everything you could ask for in a small town restaurant/bar.

Because of its unusual name, Husband and I have been meaning to have lunch at Norman Quacks for awhile. We finally stopped and were impressed. Food was great, as was the"jerk" butter on the complimentary fresh bread. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. We will be back.

I had went by here for years so we gave it a try. I ordered A stuffed bake potato called a "Hunting Shack" stew potato. I had to send it back to get zapped as it wasn't hot. Sorry to say I found it pretty boring, not a lot of flavor and only two pieces of beef. Friends had burgers... More
