A bar type restaurant with good food and generous portions. Not too busy at lunch so you get quicker service.

Awesome food and drinks. Detroit style pizza and great burgers. Live music on certain nights. Can get very busy. Staff is usually good. Bartenders can be hit and miss if you are not a regular they recognize.

Try the Detroit Style or Hand Tossed crust pizza. Always a hit. Many other choices if you're not feeling like pizza. Friendly staff, good service, good beer selection and consistently good food. As with any place if it's overly busy bring your patience.

Always friendly service and a vibrant atmosphere. I love taking Norm's newbies for the Wayside deep dish!

Excellent burgers, the southwest grill apps are delicious. We have tried all the burgers and it’s hard to pick a favorite

On an outing to Buffalo and some of the surrounding cities (some have nice lakes and beaches), we almost drove past what looked from the outside like a large Metal Warehouse of sorts, but Norm's was our restaurant adventure of the day trip. No dogs...More

My husband loves the fish sandwich here. He says it's the best in town. Unfortunately, it's always very noisy and loud so there is little chance of holding a conversation. Go for the food, have your conversation elsewhere.

My husband and I went there for the Detroit-style pizza and we hadn't been in over 7 years since we live in Georgia. The pizza was just as I'd remembered - great! We sat at the bar because the joint was jumping and lots of...More

This is just a bar and restaurant. It's really not a rest stop, like the name implies; kind of tricky, I know! Sorry!
