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.

We no longer accept reservations for Brunch on Saturdays and Sundays

Got the Greg’s burger. Easily one of the best burgers I’ve ever had.

It was very good. It was expensive for a burger place. For 3, our bill was $80 before tip.

Required a quick snack at 3:00pm after a car show downtown, stopped in for an appetizer of “homemade chips” and pico salsa, cheese, brisket etc. The “homemade chips” tasted & looked like they came out of bag, the brisket was sparsely trickled on the pico salsa, the cheese was melted and lukewarm. We will not order that appetizer again for $12, better to go with the smothered fries appetizer for the same $12. The service from Taylor was quick & efficient as she responded to our basic (Coke & Sweet Tea) drink orders. Met Luke the restaurant manager for the day, briefly spoke with him about general service and menu items. Will definitely return as other items on the menu are Excellent! 👍

Nic and Normans has great food and a great atmosphere but the service wasn’t the best. It was New Year’s Eve and they were pretty busy but they definitely did not have enough help. I would try it again!

New Year’s Eve with family dinner was a huge success! We had the fried pickles (amazing!), brisket nachos, salmon, beef medallions, meatloaf, bbq Mac, and a ribeye and NO ONE left unsatisfied or hungry. We all cannot wait to go back and either get the same thing or try something different. The decor is perfect!

N&N is a nice place, a little pricey for what it is, but it's good. The steak was cooked alright, just zero favor and the french fried onions on top were cold and stale. The pork/shank was very good, tender, as well as the corn and potatoes under the huge portion of pork, but again the dish was gold. Our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is nice. It is not allowing me to add photos.

I expected more. The servers were less than enthused and did the bare minimum to serve us. I would have said average but I only gave two stars because she averted her eyes twice when I tried to get her attention for more ketchup and she never asked why my husband did not eat his meal and we did not request a to go box.

So so good! All the food was great but the friend pickle fries and the coco cola pork shank were the best parts of the meal. I'm gonna be getting another pork snack before I go home to Florida.

Our reservation was for 2 of us at 6:30. Finally sat down at 7:15 and served food until 8:10. Server was good and apologetic for the wait. The hostesses were way over their head and did not handle the number of people waiting with reservations and all the people just waiting well at all. No manager in sight . Was fun being by the historic train depot area but they could do more to enhance the decor. Totally understand difficult staffing issues but I have never waited so long to be seated with a reservation made weeks in advance, seemed sis organized.

Was not extremely crowded but we were seated in a “busy” area. Therefore noise level was too load to really enjoy. The food was very good. Our server was good but you could tell he had too many tables to do each justice.

Waiter/Server was pretty slow. Didn't keep the drinks filled. My kid ordered the Greg's pick burger minus tomato, he got it plain with just cheese. It was a $3 upcharge from the classic burger, which is all he got. I still tipped 20% because it is Christmas week. Tomato Basil soup was average, the beef tenderloin medallions were over cooked, onion rings were cold, it was just average with an above average price. Our bill was $115. The okra was very good and fresh. I give it a 2.5/5. I will try it once more in the future to see if it was just a fluke and an off day for the waiter.

Reservation was at 6, arrived at 5:50. Was not seated until 6:43. Other than that large delay, the place was great. Not sure why a reservation was placed well in advance if we have to wait the normal waiting time.

2 of us, waited 10 minutes and then was offered a tiny little table by the front door in the corner.
I got us moved to one of the nicer tables, but what bugs me is why this wasn't the case off the bat.
Food was average, beer selection was good.
I won't be back, Stir is next door and much better.

The bar and bar tenders were a mess. Tables were not cleaned off and I stood in front of the bartender for some time before he Acknowledged me to ask if I wanted something. Yes, when someone is standing at the bar more than likely they are wanting a drink. He needs some customer service training. Otherwise we had a great visit.
