Had lunch today for the first time. Found out they let you bring your dog with the outside seating. Had a great meal and the service was very good. The waitress kept bringing refills without me having to ask. Love that.

We were looking for a bite to eat and came across this establishment. It had the standard pub fare and I did not have a high expectation. The burgers were wonderful and the service was warm attentive and anticipated each of our needs. Great place to go on a Sunday evening to unwind after the weekend.

We moved to Danville within the last year and norms is our favorite place to go. The food is very good considering it is barfood. And the people are very friendly. There is a fun lively atmosphere. I also really like the option of sitting outside. There is a good energy to it! Overall, we always have a good experience... More

This is a nice little spot in the heart of Danville that offers some limited but good patio seating. They are very accommodating with requests for seating too, so this is a good place for kids and larger parties. Food was good too! I got the veggie burger and fries, but definitely try the sweet potato fries if you can!... More

My husband and I were staying in San Ramon but made the short drive to Danville for dinner at Norm's. When we first walked up it immediately seemed welcoming. There were families, couples and small groups of friends throughout the restaurant/patio. We sat outside on the pet friendly patio. We did not have a pet with us but the pets... More

Had a bloodymary that was just OK. Switched to their wine deal. Ordered Frank Family chard. Excellent wine at a very good price.... More

Perfect place for a burger and beer fix. Outstanding fries and, of course, service. Very good menu for a relatively small restaurant. They have a good selection of local brews and wines. Being a sports grill with several flat screen tvs, there is a noise factor that prevents any form of romantic interlude.

This is a great place for comfort food. We love the burgers and the fries are the best around. There is also a great beer list. Now that they have expanded there is a good chance to sit outside and enjoy people watching in downtown Danville.

Good bar food, lively crowd, great for couples, and good for families early in the day (nights can be a bit noisy and rowdy)
