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

    Friends were in town visiting and we wanted to show them the sights of Chattanooga. So we chose Nic n Normans because we had had a good experience there in the past. (Over a year ago) The manager, Tristan, was the most unprofessional person I have ever met in the restaurant industry. And by judging how the other servers, cook and bus boy were acting this was an environment he was creating. The initial order was for 7 meals. Out of which 4 were prepared incorrectly. By the time 2 of the meals were brought out correctly the entire table had already finished their meals. My daughter, whom was pregnant was very upset by this. We were never asked how our food was or if we needed anything else. Which we were all going to order another cocktail. We asked our server to see the manger and Tristan came out to speak with us. We told him about our food being served incorrectly and one of our guests jokingly said my we were all fine but that my daughter might want to see him in the parking lot. Our table laughed knowing it was a joke and that our friend was flirting to make light of the situation. Tristan immediately went into defense mode and said he was offended that we would suggest that we were going to beat him up. We were all blown away that he had taken it to that level. He then left the table and came back saying he took all the food off our bill and that we just needed to pay for the cocktails and LEAVE HIS RESTAURANT! Absolutely dumbfounded by this response! I will never be returning here as long as Tristan works there.

    Honestly the whole experience was kind of poor. I got the chicken pot pie, which was just fried chicken fingers with a gravy that had WAY too much sage and rosemary, on top of a biscuit. My friend got a burger and she said it was delicious. The server, on the other hand, was horrible. He started off ok but once he got more tables, everything fell to the wayside and it took so long for my friend to get a mimosa that she said forget and asked for the check, which still took forever.

    Everything was super good! The whiskey citrus salmon was very light and tasty as well as the strawberry fields cocktail. Service was great and I wish I could remember her name because she was so sweet and knowledgeable about the menu. There was also a guy host who was so sweet. I will definitely be back!

    A quaint restaurant next to Chattanooga's famous Choo-Choo train, Nic & Norman's was a beautiful place for my husband and I to have dinner for our 25th wedding anniversary. I had the marinated salmon and my husband had the beef tenderloins--both were so delicious, tender, and juicy! The avocado toast appetizer, the Strawberry Fields mixed drink (I highly recommend!) with fresh strawberries, and the entree sides were amazing as well. The atmosphere was enjoyable (a zombie vibe with pictures of Nic and Norman) and the service was superb. You will not regret visiting here, especially if you are a foodie and love The Walking Dead show!

    Once again - very pleasant experience at Nic & Norman’s… From being greeted as we walked in and promptly seated without a wait - despite arriving almost 15 minutes early… and our perfectly courteous, pleasant server Autumn, who offered suggestions based on our brief conversation and very efficient, courteous service through the meal. Definitely, and highly recommend you try out some of the amazing and delicious unique items that they so quickly are able to serve. Don’t miss out!!

    I ordered a blueberry collins. I had to send it back because it was extremely sour. Opted for a Mich Ultra that was barely cold. My wife’s water had styrofoam floating in it. Not sure how the server couldn’t see that when bringing it to us and placing it on the table. Ordered burgers and they were amazing. Id return for the food but the beverage side was disappointing.
