My wife and I were looking for something different and were told about this little place on Boyd street that set across from the University of Oklahoma. The place had a lot of outdoor seating. The inside was small but nice. We were placed at a table immediately and the waitress was very nice. My wife ordered a glass of... More

I worked and paid my way through college in the 80's working in this famous small restaurant and bar! It was good and really special then but has not lost it's charm in the big chain restaurant world! The building has so much history! Just sit at the bar and read the carvings in the wood! The pizza is great... More

We have found a new spot to stop by and enjoy. The pizza and sandwiches are delicious. Our waitress was a delight.

Great little bar near the campus. Located on Boyd Street this great bar is located in one of Norman's historical areas. Has outdoor seating and old bar charm on the inside. We enjoyed the wine and food. Relaxing atmosphere. Guess you would call it "Norman's Cheers!"

If you visit Norman, you have to make a stop by the Library. Fantastic outdoor seating-beautiful. Don't worry about food, but if you need a snack the pretzels are very good.

This used to be one of my alltime favorite places in Norman. They have a great beer and pizza atmosphere that is enjoyable to be with friends. College kids are really annoying but this place does a good job of keeping them away.

What I love about the Library is it never changes. I've been going there for the past 15 years and I couldn't tell you what's different about it. We love the BBQ chicken pizza - the bacon makes it. It's just a good place to drink, munch, and hang with friends.

This is a nice place to chill in the late night (close till 2 a.m.), to be. It is in the walking distance from the Catlett Music Center in OU campus. The restaurant is hiding behind the tall trees/bushes on the Boyd Street, very homey, layback and safe. Friendly service. This is a traditional American food restaurant, good for friends... More

Great prices on beers, wonderful outdoor seating. A favorite of mine during my years in Norman. You can never go wrong with a cold Coach's IPA at the Good Library!
