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.

    It’s located in part of the Choo Choo so there is some noise but still are able to talk without yelling. Staff was amazing and attentive. Emyle was our server and she was amazing!!! The Coca Cola pork was better than I thought. The meat was tender and juicy. Highly recommend and worth every penny.

    The live music was perfect and not too loud, but loud enough we could hear clearly in the dinning area. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with the menu and suggestions. The food was great. Price was fair and service was prompt and very knowledgably. It was a very pleasant dinner experience. Would definitely recommend to any type of party. Kids welcome, private parties or a date for 2. It was perfect. Will be back to try more items on the menu.

    The food was okay (mostly dry) with good flavor and our waitress was great 5 stars. For the price and the noise there are better options in Chattanooga. Also there was live music and I was ready just to pay him not to sing. I'm all for second chances I just can't say I would use one here.

    We visited with a group before Christmas, and I knew it would be a revisit for us because it was so good. My husband and I decided to do a date night here and it was wonderful. It was a Thursday night, so they weren’t busy. Our server was fantastic and the food was delicious. Super chill atmosphere. I can’t wait to go back!

    The menu offers a good variety of food served in an old historic train depot. Prices weren’t bad but considering we had to pay for parking…it made lunch a bit pricier than we were expecting. The redeeming factor all around was the waitress we had. Service was excellent (always with a smile and making sure dietary restrictions were accommodated.) She made our experience on a dark, dreary, cold day very pleasant as we took our time visiting with friends we hadn’t seen in 53 years. She even filled us in on a bit of the history behind the train station!

    Brussels were on point! The tomato salad should not be served when tomatoes are out of season. The refrigerated tomato slices were grainy and tasteless. However, we totally enjoyed ourselves and had a really super waiter. I recommend N&N for the value and atmosphere. You get to have a great dinner at the Choo Choo and not feel like it was a rip off.

    It took an unreasonably long time for our food to arrive. If we had made complicated orders, I could understand that. We all had burgers. Two different parties near ours received their food before we did. When the food arrived, one member of the group didn’t receive the side she had ordered. One member of the group received a fish sandwich instead of the chicken sandwich he ordered. When the server returned, the two members of the group made him aware of the problems. By the time everyone else had finished their food, still no chicken sandwich or Brussels sprouts. When the chicken sandwich came, the server was reminded that my friend never received her Brussels sprouts. His reaction was, “Are you sure?” On top of it all, we were charged 18% gratuity and the full price of everything-no adjustments for bringing the wrong kind of sandwich. Just a very disappointing experience.

    Interesting menu for a chain restaurant. Food was quite good, despite an overly aggressive use of barbecue sauce. Server was attentive enough. Bar Server (I got there before the rest of my party), despite being helpful, was single task directed.
