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.

    $7 Burger week was a treat, had their Special $7 burger (Meatloaf mashed potatoes and house sauce) was very tasty, grilled fish sandwich was excellent, however Only 5 Onion Rings as a $6 side was disappointing. Outstanding service from Kristy was pleasantly welcoming.

    Very cool restaurant in good location. Server was good and attentive. However, A restaurant that serves wine by the bottle should train servers on how to properly serve & pour. Not her fault, but an opportunity for management to make the place better. The burgers were mediocre, I didn't eat half of mine, which is highly unusual!! But...It was cool enough that I'll gladly go back! Side note: Needs an occasional zombie. And Norman to ask this old motorcycle guy to join him on a ride!

    The ambiance is terrific. On Saturday evenings, the restaurant has live entertainment, which is always excellent. The food was good. My husband likes a good salad, but the last few times, the salad was not as good as it was in the past. He will probably not order another salad from there again. The Harvest Medley Soup was fantastic.

    I was so excited to try Nic & Norman's. It is a beautiful place but make sure u request to be away from kids if the screamers and food throwers bother u. We started with the Avocado and crab toast. The flavor was amazing but it was super floppy. U can tell they toast the top only so it was pretty soggy. For our meal, I ordered the brisket mac & cheese and a side of the roasted red potatoes and my husband ordered the fried mozzarella and sidewinder fries. He has a tomato allergy and told them when he ordered. When our food came out, they brought me brisket nachos and they brought his fries out with ketchup and his mozzarella out with marinara. Needless to say, we had to send it all back. While I ate the very delicious red roasted potatoes we waited on our food to come out a second time. The food came back pretty quickly. My husband said both the fries and mozzarella were perfect. My brisket mac & cheese tasted soooo good-best bbq sauce I've ever had if u like sweet sauce, which I do. The cheese on the Mac & cheese was however, like soup. It was near impossible to eat with a fork. The brisket is served in chunks on top of the mac & cheese and there were 4- 1 square inch thin pieces. Again, the food TASTES amazing. I was super happy with flavors. The mac & cheese should definitely be served in a bowl and they should provide a spoon. Overall I was super disappointed bc it is a pricey place so i expected a bit better. Our server was a sweetheart so that was a plus.

    Pretty cool building that is attached to the Choo Choo, great atmosphere and wonderful service but the food was not great. Tasted a few days old and warmed in a microwave at best. For the price I will go elsewhere and get fresh cooked hot food.

    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.
