I love Norma Jean's for many reasons: the servers are fun and efficient, food is always fresh and great-tasting, and it is great value for money. make sure you reserve a table as the restaurant is small and popular. I recommend their salads.

My wife and I traveled to One Sound for an over night and our B&B host recommended Norma Jean's for simple, but great tasting food. We ordered a sandwich and a burger, but both were amazingly good. Will definitely return another time!
