My mother and I were visiting Owen Sound and looking for a quick bite for lunch. We were so impressed by the quality and taste we made reservations for the same night! Dinner was even better than hoped for. I have eaten and many 5 star restaurants in Toronto and Norma Jean’s in-house age steak beats them hands down. While the restaurant may not scream gourmet, the food will not disappoint. We most certainly be back for the fresh, original menu and the comfortable atmosphere. Robyn and Jane from Hamilton. Cheers!

We have been to Norma Jean's many times over the years and have always had warm, friendly service and excellent meals. On our most recent visit, a few weeks ago, we were welcomed with
their new menu. A lot of the old stand-bys, such as Chicken Marilyn, were still there (I don't think they would dare remove them!), but there are several new items, including a Mediterranean Pasta, which I had, and it was absolutely yummy. My husband, as usual, had one of their steaks, which have always been perfectly done to his taste, and this was no exception. The servers here seem to really love their jobs - how refreshing when many restaurants have servers who act as if they are doing you a favour by serving you. They always feature 4-6 blackboard specials, which are creative and delicious every time. Norma Jean's is very small - maybe 45-50 seats, so we suggest making a reservation, as this is the longest-running (more than 20 years) restaurant in town and a great favourite with the locals. Thank you to Julie and all of her chefs and staff for being so consistently reliable!
