I've eaten there twice. It was neither here nor there. Average is the best I can describe it. Sat outside.

We had dinner at this place. The atmosphere is that of a busy pub. Service was below average, but again, they were very busy. The menu selection was very limited in my opinion. Pizza, burgers and sandwiches. Some salad choices. We both had cheese burgers. They were alright but not something we would rush back for. Prices were reasonable. We... More

Went back to Norma Jeans for their cheeseburger. Last time I was there the diet coke tasted different, I thought it was me, but again this time it didn't taste right again. Not sure if it is not diet coke/pepsi or the fountain needs cleaning. Just doesn't taste right to me. The service this time was ok. Asked for drinks... More

My wife while out with a friend stopped by for a burger. She ordered a patty melt on toasted rye bread. A simple but tasty choice. Unfortunately the Toasted Rye only appeared to be toasted it was actually soggy and very unappetizing. The meat was just plain terrible, it was dry, tasteless and had a texture unlike any burger or... More

A friend and I stopped for dinner. Dingy would describe the bar and dining area. Service was quick from an grumpy waitress who spoke only a few words until it came time for the check to be paid. A bourbon Manhattan came made with Southern Comfort, hardly a bourbon. The burger was accompanied by greasy wet fries. This place hardly... More

Try the chicken wings or great burgers. Nice variety of beers and good place to watch a 3 1/2 hour football game. Multiple table side tv's available with sound, for any game you choose.
