Went for lunch, there was just the two of us, and we found this place by mistake really. It is a bit off the main drag, and does not look like much, but I am so glad we dropped by. The menu was posted outside and that convinced me to give it a try. I had grilled cheese which consisted of smoked cheddar, cheddar and feta cheese with pear slices. My side choice was a chicken corn chowder. So very delicious. My guest had a burger that was equally delicious and a large serving. It is licensed and a white wine spritzer was a perfect addition to my luncheon. Price point was great and the service was prompt, polite and such a refreshing change from the chain restaurants. If you find yourself in Owen Sound, please make the effort. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Norma Jean's has the local beer Kilannan on tap. This is a great way to start any meal. The calimari appetizer was as good as I have ever had anywhere. We had the salmon and the pork diablo. Both were nicely presented and well prepared. It is so rare to thoroughly enjoy a meal out where everything gets done well. Highly recommended.

This restaurant came recommended. The food was wholesome and tasted good without the usual oversize load of a meal were coming to expect in Canada when we waste so much of it.
