“Great place!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Fantastic food! I especially like the fish. Kind of out of the way, but that's a good thing. You can get to Norm's by land vehicle or boat. They even have weekend breakfast in the morning! Love riding the Harley out there.

Friendly owner and staff. Fun menu; GREAT burgers. Something for everyone. Nightly specials and Sunday breakfast. Check out everything on the walls; this place is truly unique.

“Tasty and fun classic Wisconsin bar/restaurant!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Bring your friends and come hungry! We loved this place!
Went with a group of six for Friday Fish Fry and was surprised to find a table right away, although the place was pretty packed around 6:30pm! Classic Wisconsin feel with stuffed animals and fish everywhere! Love that Wisconsin is non-smoking: smoking was only allowed on the porch. Most people had the standard fried cod, I had bluegills, and one person had parmesan crusted fish. All of us loved it! Cod was around $8, while bluegills were about $14. Choice of potato included potato pancakes, which many of us had and loved (served with syrup and applesauce). We shared cheese curds, fried cauliflower, and a cheese-spread plate. They were all superb!
They take orders at the bar and bring food out to you. Took a bit to get service at the bar, but we weren't in a hurry. Although there is an ATM, I was surprised they do not accept plastic, so bring your cash!
I'd suggest Norm's for any type of group, from couples to families to friends. Not the best for a quiet romantic dinner, although the six of us found it easy enough to have a conversation, even though we were in the middle of the room, surrounded by packed tables.
They had a very large menu with a variety of pub foods and local specialities.

“Great Food and location”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Right on the Lake, Norm's offers great food and a north woods setting. It is very popular with locals and summer crowd so expect fast service but long waits for food and maybe a table especially on Fish Fry Friday. Arrive before five for table selection and faster service.

Has boat Docs for those on Lake Koshkonong.

Cash only with in house ATM.

Well worth the trip!!
