What a wonderful surprise to have a restaurant live up to its reputation! Norma's came highly recommended by the locals, and it did not disappoint! TIP: go a little early to beat the dinner crowd, so the chef can cater to a specific dining request...( grilled not fried, etc) and more personalized attention. The food here is incredibly fresh, the portions a perfect size (you choose how much fish/seafood you wish - half or full order), and the prices reasonable, especially for a tourist town!!More

We come to this place every year, the service is great the food is delicious, we like the captains platter, because they will cook it 5 different ways, fried, boiled, steamed, grilled or sauté. The clam chowder is AMAZING! Best we ever had!! Thick, hardy...and loaded with lots of clams.More

Wish we had a chance to eat there more than once. The clam chowder and pasta I had were both delicious. Great and friendly service.

we went here for lunch on our second day in Seaside. same great food and service as we had two years ago. this is our favorite place to eat in Seaside. Norma's has been "doing it the right way" for many years. a big plus...is the free public parking across the street.More

Our server was excellent and steered us away from something we thought we wanted --very much appreciated-- to something that was very tasty without being overbearingn. Seafood fettuccini was chock full of seafood, clam chowder was excellent, and caesar salad was perfect and HUGE. Especially...appreciated the tiny shrimp for the dinner salad. Overall a very nice experience.More

We had eaten here before last summer but we will never go back. The food was eatable however not worth the price of it.

There wasn't one thing about the food we were served that was very good..It was so so at best. The service was better than the food but we would not go back.

We were a party of 4 - 2 adults, a teenager and her pet dog (Maggie the beagle); Staying at the HillCrest Inn, we decided not to let Maggie remain in the car while we dined. We ordered takeout. The restaurant is an easy walk...down Columbia Ave. We ordered the fettucini (veggie) and fettucini (smoked salmon), the scallops, baked potatoe and 2 lemonades. The lemonade was fresh squeezed, the entrees were very good, a bit over salted but leftovers (cold the next day were delicious) and the salad (with baby shrimp) was very good.More

Haven’t been to this restaurant before, so 1st time encounter. Went down for quick weekend getaway in Seaside. Went for late lunch/dinner. Wife had soup and salad. She liked it all, their clam chowder is “Northwest Renowned”. It was good, but no bacon/pork was noticed...for my tastes. Still wouldn’t turn a cup down! I had the shrimp Louie. Why doesn’t anyone make a true Louie dressing? Still Norma’s makes all their own dressings in house! Wife had blue cheese which was very good. I had the Thousand Island on my Louie and again, it was as well, very good. Would come back! Staff were fantastic! Very attentive and prompt for any request. We’ll be back! RobinMore

Doing a Google search it appears to be only on Mondays, between Nov and February. However, my husband and I always share a meal and find that it is plenty for both us at any time.
