We liked the mixed drink menu and were excited for the "adult kid food". We tried the mac and cheese (which was good if a little under-seasoned) as well as the sausage and gravy fries, which were very good. The burgers were cooked perfectly and...More

Came for a drink here last night and ended up ordering the pulled pork nachos. They're a little on the pricy range, but the plate fed two of us. Those are the best nachos that I've had in years. I really appreciated that they were...More

This restaurant needs a zero rating. The costumer service, especially Jennifer, was horrendous! The food was awful and way over priced - over $60 for a small, grilled chicken salad, egg sandwich and fish and chips. The waitress was rude and condescending when I complained...More

Located in the heart of downtown Napa's West End District, the Norman Rose Tavern is that comfortable spot where you can meet family and friends for a nice cocktail, pint or glass of wine paired with a great burger and fries or other classic, American comfort food. The menu takes a local, sustainable approach to time-honored dishes like fish & chips, fried chicken, chop salad, mac and cheese, and much more, all prepared utilizing the fresh, seasonal and quality ingredients found in the North Bay. The design offers a rustic pub feel with modern touches created by Kimberly Nunn and Dan Worden of Shopworks in Napa. The thoughtful beverage list sports a collection of cocktails, wines and beers that soar two or three levels above most, with many outstanding and well priced Napa Valley wines. The by-the-glass list is impressive as well with over twenty wines by the glass. An extensive spirits list featuring classic cocktails round out the offerings.
