You might drive by this little place before you find it, but it's a cool place. Had lunch here, and loved the view and food. Chowder was great, and the service was great.

Love Norm's the chicken barbecue's are fantastic. Great food and service. The owner Diane is wonderful. Lots on the menu and very reasonably priced. It's located on the Merrimack River. There is a a spot to put your boat in the river. I would recommend this restaurant.

Henry David Thoreau took a canoe trip down the Merrimack River. I don't know what he ate along the way, but if he were alive today, I think he would have mixed feelings about Norm's White Horse. What he wouldn't like is the noise level during the dinner rush hour. After all, he spent a year alone not far away at Walden Pond. Why so noisy? Well, it's the food! It's tasty and filling. The menu is varied. I had the Linguini with White Clam Sauce. The flavor was rich and hearty...the garlic supercharged the sauce. I bit into a large slice and the powerful taste made my eyes water. But, I was loving it. The Crab Cakes were done to perfection.
The service was fast and friendly. The bar area was packed with Red Sox fans. The informal ambiance was relaxing. The wine list was adequate and complimented the dishes well.
Just beyond the parking lot, in the back, flowed the gentle Merrimack River. It's a little under 30 miles from downtown Boston and it was worth the drive. To sum it up: great food served informally in a quiet neighbor.

Don't pass this unassuming place by. What looks like a small local bar has an extensive and delicious menu. Great drinks good pricing and great views of the Merrimac river.
