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

We are from out of town and decided yo check the restaurant out since we’re fans of Norman and the show. The sweet potato fries were amazing and the mozzarella bites were delicious.

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.

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding Anniversary here for lunch and drinks. Even came back the next day. The lead bartender was so nice and she even let me try the special peppermint cocoa she made for the weekend. Will be back again. Try the blackberry colada so good!!

They had to makeshift a table for us (obviously not a reservation planned for) . Had to ask for silverware, the ribeye and potatoes were only Lukewarm and not very good. We don’t plan to go back. Overall a disappointment.

Stopped in while driving through Chattanooga. What a great place! The building alone is worth the stop. Menu is fantastic and food was innovative and tasty. Haley was so helpful in choosing and new the menu items well. We will be back!

I got the Norman’s pick and that was SUCH a good decision, it was literally the best impossible burger I’ve ever eaten. Good prices and phenomenal food. The service was very great as well.

The vibe was just what I needed.
The staff was beyond friendly and accommodating, even when I had concern about one food item.
I look forward to going back every time I'm in Chattanooga.

Oh, and repurposing part of the train station for a fun restaurant? Brilliant!!

First time there. A little quiet since it was just after 5 pm but then picked up. Service was outstanding and food very good. The Chicken Pot Pie was really good and biscuits to die for. Will be back.

Had been here on a Friday night previously. Comparatively, on a Thursday evening, no atmosphere (restaurant was fairly empty at prime time), food about the same, reasonable value for what you get, but service was extremely poor. Brought mine and my wife’s draught beverages to the table about 10 mins apart, forgot some of our order. Our waiter did not seem educated wrt beverages on the menu. Also took an exorbitant length of time to be served. With young children, time is money and efficiency in a restaurant is essential. The same meal that we enjoyed on a Friday evening (when the restaurant seemed at capacity) in 1 hour, took 50% longer to complete on a Thursday.

Great atmosphere in a beautiful building, but the food was just barely warm when we got it. Service was good , but nothing special, as the waitress never asked if she could refresh our drinks. Maybe better as a lunch or burger place?

The food was just ok. They had a lot of people waiting around with reservations waiting to be sat when we arrived. My wine was old and the patio was so so. I wouldn’t go back. The salmon was good but that’s about it.

The food was just okay, not worth the price in my opinion, nothing wrong with it, it just lacked flavor. Service was just okay as well. This place was super hyped up on tiktok and other travel websites, but I wish we’d skipped it 😞

We were seated near the door to the outdoor seating. So we endured the in and out of the servers banging the door.
Thinking if there was some sort of dampener placed along the door, it would be invisible to the table where we were seated. Other than that, it was a good experience.

We had a great time at Nic & Norman’s! We got 2 appetizers: pickle fries and the flatbread marguerita pizza. My 2 friends loved both, but not being a lover of garlic, I felt the pizza had too much garlic. The drinks were perfect. Bathrooms were clean. Very cool historic building.
