Piping hot delicious food, hot fresh bread. Prompt service (Wednesday evening).
Ask for large salad if you're into that.
Other room was eating wings BIG TIME!
Will surely return in the future.

Having eaten at the Normal Square Inn with my family, it turned out to be a great affair, served personally by the owners as a family dinner. It was a casual and relaxing time with a bar available if wanted. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. Could have had some background music. May have been there but was not playing at our time there. If in the area again, I will readily drop in and partake of a nice time.

Having dined at this restaurant on a regular basis for quite some time now AND having worked in the industry myself in the past I just had to comment on some of the negative reviews I have read below. First, when you are asked if you have a reservation, it is usually because upon making reservations, some people request a certain table, or it could be that there are several different tables in one room that have been reserved for a group. Someone inquiring if you have a reservation is just a question, it is not an insult nor is it a suggestion that you should have made one, or that one is needed.
With that being said, as I mentioned before, I dine here frequently, although I now am a local, I was not always. I have traveled the world and had some of the finest cuisines known to man. The food here has always been good. If you had a bad experience here, all I can say is, maybe you just caught someone on a bad day, it does happen you know and secondly, I'd ask myself if this kind of thing happens to you often, if it does, I would then suspect that you are "one of those people" for whom nothing is ever right! That's you, not Normal Square or their employees who I have found to be nothing but gracious, helpful, fun and accommodating. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. And in reading the negative reviews please take into consideration that there are far more positive ones than not and that some people are just not able to be pleased!

First, in all fairness, I must say that when my wife and I initially found this place a couple of years ago, it was good. Tasty imaginative dishes...but I digress... Fast forward to the present. I'm not sure if the original chef was killed, or if the restaurant is now just pandering to the locals, but the food is now officially just AWFUL. The hostess/barmaid is quite self-important to the point of being downright RUDE (and this person is your first contact in the place). After finally being seated, I ordered the French Dip sandwich which, according to the menu, is supposed to be served on a kaiser roll; mine was served on a grocery store hamburger bun (yes, some of us DO know the difference) with a side of stone cold au jus (I'll call it that for lack of a better term, more like what comes out of your car during an oil change). My meal as a whole needed vast improvement just to get UP to the level of 'sucked'. My wife had ONE bite of her cheese ravioli and meatballs and put her fork down. We were both somewhat curious as to what part of Italy uses straight tomato paste for sauce and CHEDDAR CHEESE? (remember my reference to pandering to the locals). My wife sent her meal back; she was not offered a replacement dish, or any consideration for that matter, and the position of the establishment was that they believed the dish was fine and if my wife didn't like it, that was "just too bad". Suffice it to say, we will never darken the doorway of this establishment ever again, and would advise anyone else to avoid it as well.

Our golf group has eaten here 4 times and the result has been outstanding for all of us. Their veal has been outstanding with all sides being delicous, Those who had drinks thought they were good and reasonable. We all would recommend this for being an outstanding place to eat.

1st of all, don't listen to the idiots who gave this place a bad review. Umm, maybe the reason they asked if you had a reservation was because they wanted to know if you had indeed made a reservation? My wife and I went there for our 5 yr Anniversary. We had a great dining experience. I'm not sure if a reservation is required but we made one anyway, about an hour before we planned to eat around 6:30 pm on a Saturday. The said they would fit us in and when we got there the place was pretty full. I had the 12oz Strip for $19.95 and my wife ate Pork chops for $14.95. With the meal, we each received 2 sides and a salad which honestly could have been a bit bigger but wasn't a problem. The sides were fresh and tasty as opposed to out of the freezer. I ordered my steak medium and "what do ya know" it came out medium and juicy and delicious. My wife's chops were delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and already have!

Came from lehigh valley & walked in on a Saturday @ 4:45pm. The hostess said u needed a reservation. The place was empty, so we sat in the bar area. Ordered a dinner salad extra & it was the smallest salad i ever seen in my life for an extra $2.95! The chicken we ordered way too dry. When we left at 6pm the place still had alot of empty tables!
Pass on the Normal Square Inn.
