After the growth and love we felt in our Senoia location, we knew it was time to expand.

Our passion for creating special moments has adopted a passion for taking old iconic buildings and turning them into one of a kind, unique places to create those moments in.

Chattanooga is no exception. We've taken this space at the Choo Choo and kept it as authentic as we could while adding our Nic & Norman's story throughout.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

    Clean, spacious, and good-looking restaurant. Recommended to us by friends. Not busy or noisy while we were there on Mother's Day evening (there was a rock concert nearby, but you wouldn't know it). Friendly staff, yummy food, and fun rock music. Plenty of parking in the garage next door ($5). My wife added salmon to her salad and was disappointed at the amount compared with the price of the addition.

    We celebrated Mother's Day with my wife and my daughter-in-law along with two of my sons and our grand daughter. The service was very good, our server came and checked on us throughout. It was a hot day and they left the back door open and the outside bar window open. Since we were sitting not too far from the bar, we were very hot. They sat us along a wall where no ceiling fan was above us. The food was okay. My son and I ordered the fried chicken sandwich (burger) and his came without the fixings (lettuce, tomato, pickles, and sauce) so we had to flag down our server and get those items on the side. I ordered the fried chicken sandwich and mine came with everything. Both chicken sandwiches were dry. My wife and older son ordered burgers and they both said they liked them. My daughter-in-law ordered the turkey sandwich and said it was okay, but not great. To be honest, I'm a Walking Dead fan and wanted to see what the restaurant had to offer. I'd give it one more chance as I don't like to completely scrub an eatery with only one visit. Overall, I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars.

    Food and drinks were average. Service was good. Five of us ordered the Basic Bloody Mary made with Absolute Vodka from the Brunch menu advertised at $6 dollars. When the bill arrived we were charged $18.00 for 3 Bloody Mary's and $12.00 for 3 Titos. Why? We did not order a specific/called liquor. When we questioned the server, she could not explain..... Nor did she offer to adjust. Do not offer items on your menu if you cannot deliver. Clearly this is false advertising! We live in the neighborhood and frequent N&N on a regular basis. Maybe we need to rethink who we patronize!

    The server was one of the best servers we’ve had. She was very pleasant and attentive. Experience almost worth it just for quality of service but the food was very good also. Also great theme and great location next to Choo Choo. Only downside is we had a small table which it made it a little difficult to share dishes. Otherwise an awesome experience. Would highly recommend.

    I absolutely love the industrial look, and the bar area is spectacular looking; however, if you choose to eat in the bar area, expect to wait on service (which tested my patience). The Lamb burger is delicious. The brisket nachos are as well. Skip the Avocado toast.

    We went to Nic & Norman's for lunch with relatives from the UK. We ordered lunch specials to facilitate production speed since we were on a strict time crunch to to their motor coach departing after just one hour. Our server provided excellent service-responsive and helpful without being obtrusive. The food at Nic & Norman's is their unique take on classic American fare, and was very good. We all agreed it was tasty and a good value for the price. I returned a couple of days later to get my wife a Tee-shirt, and the same server was watching the door and remembered us. Try the pulled pork sliders with the sweet potato fries, and we can also recommend the chicken.

    Our sever wasn’t very friendly. She only refilled our drinks once and that was after we almost had to beg her to. We had no silverware and had to ask for that also. We were stuck in a small corner and couldn’t really see everything. Was very disappointed with the service. The food was amazing however and the hostess was friendly.

    When we booked, we had no idea that this restaurant was inside the former Chattanooga train station. So, there was nostalgia, a plus. Our server, Jo, was so personable and attentive. My husband's favorite meatloaf was his choice, and I had the beef sirloin tips cooked to perfection. Hands down THE best Brussels sprouts I have ever tasted. There is something for everyone on the menu. What a wonderful meal!

    We nearly missed out on this restaurant because we read some bad reviews. I have NO idea where they came from. We visit chattanooga constantly for my daughter’s dance competitions, and we always try the variety of fun restaurants each visit. This one did not disappoint at all! We will definitely be back. Food was incredible and the atmosphere was beautiful.

    As always, Nic & Norms did NOT disappoint. Service was prompt and engaging. Caleb was excellent with suggestions and worked our table’s vibe well. Drinks were tasty, a little slow with the cocktails but beer and wine came out quick. I love that try bring new cocktails on the menu, they tend to hit ‘em out of the park. Food was delicious and quick! You honestly can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Venue is clean and fun atmosphere. We love bringing out out of town guests here!

    We arrived at Nick and Norman’s and was greeted by a rude hostess. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation. And about 10 minutes later, a server came by to grab our drink order. I asked her if there was fresh coffee made and she responded wit” there should be“. Our drinks arrived and of course the coffee was old and not fresh. My husband ordered the brisket mac & cheese, which came out looking like a Third World country plate. I wouldn’t have eaten it if you paid me!! my son ordered the whiskey salmon, which was dry and not good either. Our appetizers were fried pickles they were soggy. We also order the the crab me avocado toast, and that was soggy as well. Do BETTER Nick and Norman’s! For $150 tab for four people service was terrible!

    Great atmosphere and the food was delicious. It was great quality too, everything was perfectly seasoned, nothing was drowning is sauces or salt as a number of restaurants do to cover inferior product. And the variety of food was perfect, they even offered lettuce wraps for burgers or you can opt for a guten free roll. My nephew had the Normans Pick and well there was nothing left on his plate. My in-laws both ordered the fish burger and while my father-in-law usually finishes his meal, my mother-in-law rarely does, well that was not the case at Nic & Norman's she ate all her food. I would say that is a pretty high compliment. I look forward to returning to try other options on the menu, like perhaps the Whiskey Citrus Salmon.

    Lotus was our server and she was so nice. Checked on us through the meal, greeted us upon arrival and wished us well when we left. Best service we have had in a while. The pickle fries were so good. The flatbread pizza was amazing but I didn’t see the donut burger I had before and I wanted to get that again. Overall it’s great and we will go back.
