Description: Located in the heart of downtown Napa's West End District, the Norman Rose Tavern is that comfortable spot where you can meet family and friends for a nice cocktail, pint or glass of wine paired with a great burger and fries or other classic, American comfort food. The menu takes a local, sustainable approach to time-honored dishes like fish & chips, fried chicken, chop salad, mac and cheese, and much more, all prepared utilizing the fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients found in the North Bay. The design offers a rustic pub feel with modern touches created by Kimberly Nunn and Dan Worden of Shopworks in Napa. The thoughtful beverage list sports a collection of cocktails, wines and beers that soar two or three levels above most, with many outstanding and well priced Napa Valley wines. The by-the-glass list is impressive as well with over twenty wines by the glass. An extensive spirits list featuring classic cocktails round out the offerings.

My family is from Napa and they always have fun at the bar here. We went for a drink but were tempted by the burgers!
We ended up staying and getting pickled veggies, cheeseburger and tasty veggieburger. We were thinking of ordering the fries but the burgers were so big and fulfilling we didn't need them!

We walked in after a very long trip. Menu is comfort food with a twist. Tasty wine and coffee. Try the pickled veggie appetizer.

We stumbled upon the Rose Tavern upon the recommendation of an artist in a local art gallery. The lamb burger was a must have. But the brussel sprouts side dish with butternut squash and hazelnuts was divine. Another member of our party had nothing but good things to say about the mussels.

I live in Napa and have gone to all the beer pubs in town and Norman Rose is my favorite. Good beers, great food. Simple menu, reasonably priced. The lamb burger is totally unique for those who have love lamb or burgers. While I hate brussel sprouts, I will eat the brussel sprouts at Norman Rose any day they are on the menu. The staff is very friendly and has been great each time I have been there regardless of the time of day.

Swung by Norman Rs before a night of beveraging. Nice place, friendly staff, more than a one stall bathroom. Food was awesome, drinks were well made. Nice atmosphere, I'd go back for sure.
