Great local talent. Lots of great music over a drink and good food. Priced well. Good service. Very busy Friday and Saturday nights. Old bar with character.

Service is mediocre when busy - not enough staff. Kitchen is hit and miss. Best value is the amazing Folk Burger, IF you actually get the "Tower of Onion Rings" good luck with that!

I have, over the years, stopped at the Norfolk for a cold beer on any number of hot summer days, EXCEPT on any Friday the 13th. You would not classify the Norfolk as fancy by any means; but, it is a Port Dover icon where countless numbers of thirsty travelers have dropped in for a brew. This well established "Pub"... More

Was in town with friends. After walking the beach we decided we needed a bite to eat and of course a drink. The Norfolk fit the bill. Beer, great fries and battered mushrooms in a relaxing setting was all we needed

We stopped by the art in the park and followed up with a quick meal and beer . Sitting on the patio and listening to a good duo playing a variety of music . We met a few others on the deck who had the same logic and found we were all in the same neighbourhood . The server was... More

Same as always inside for a local pub. New menu offering more choices. But the wings are on special tues and wed. I had the poutine, very good and very large serving. Others food items look tasty. Thats the summer place to go, and has outdoor patio.

First time here was for a Friday 13th and of course it would be great. This time, not so much. It wasn't overly busy but the people behind the bar didn't have a large knowledge of basic drinks for didn't have the liquor to make them. Beer wasn't cold at all which is a no no. Ages ranged from young... More

Come in and meet the locals. This is the kind of place you hung out when you were young if you are a Baby Boomer. They have weekly special on chicken wings and a good selection of draft. I would highly recommend the burgers if your looking to fill your face.
