This is a great place. The people are chill and the food and drinks are good. I enjoy trivia night. I've been to some other trivia nights, but I think Norm's is one of the better ones. I food is always solid, and if you can sit outside, it tastes even better. I definitely recommend this place to whoever is looking to hang out at a great place!

Pros: Good drinks, good recipes, fun place

Cons: Why are you so far away?

Norm's is my first choice for a Happy Hour stop in Fremont - although I'm a little biased as it's close to home and I happen to enjoy the furry customers that frequent the place.

Happy Hour is pretty standard, with $3 Drafts and $5 appy's. My favorite appetizers are the Baked Brie and the Hummus plates. While I've tried other menu items they just seemed to be average pub fare.

The weekday crowd seem to be after work regulars with or without their furry friends, whereas the weekend crowd are younger party seekers. They have a couple TV's that usually play sports, but not ideal for watching the big game unless you nab a bar stool or bring your binoculars.

hands down..the best, most interesting bar food in seattle. you read the menu the food sounds interesting. It is good or better than the description. there are eaterys out there that wish they served food as good as Norms. Slowly working my way thru the menu to enjoy the experience. Ice cold Black Butte in bottles a plus for me.

Pros: the food.the wait staff. tv positions.bar with foot rail.

Cons: i'm just not a dog person

My wife and I have been going here for about 6 years, and the kitchen staff keeps doing amazing things. The staff is friendly, and the dogs are well-behaved, or Steve (Norm's pet) will 86 'em!

Pros: doggie bowls, the catch, the pastrami sandwich, all the rest

Cons: sometimes the parking

.

We go to Norms once a month and bring our doggies. They LOVE it! We order them their own burger (hold the spices, please) which comes in a bowl. They get their own water bowl too...! I've had the Cobb Salad, burger, Chicken and Brie Sandwich, Mac n Cheese, Hot Wings, Meatloaf... all are VERY good. I love the Pub Trivia, watching/listening to sports and being able to sit inside a restaurant with our dogs beside us and not tied up outside. \r
I highly recommend this place to all dog lovers, beer drinkers and people people! See you there!

So I finally went to Norms. I went with my boyfriend and our two dogs. We made a point to go during happy hour for some cheap drink and eats. I definitly was pleased. The atmosphere was very fun and casual, and the happy hour menu was well priced. I will say that the food isnt exactly the most amazing, however it is totally worth it to be in a fun bar with your animal friends!

Cons: just ""ok"" food

bring your dog, watch a game, get some chip and dip, bloody mary's are awesome. Food is mediocre and a little over-priced, but cool spot, cool people... and they sell 40's of PBR too!

Of course Seattle is a great place to own a pet, but at Norm's, they actually encourage you to bring your dog in with you while you have a beer. You'll walk in during any after work happy hour and find people sitting right along with their dogs eating and drinking. Unfortunately our dog is too bad to take out in public, but I still enjoy seeing other people's dogs in a bar. The food is okay and the drinks are reasonably priced, but the atmosphere is well worth the investment. They also serve 40s in a bag!

My husband and I (and our pup) have wanted to try this place for a while. We embarked on a bike ride from Magnolia through Ballard and were ready for lunch when we got to Fremont. Problem...dog in tow and we hate tieing her up outside, so we dropped into Norm's. We were impressed to find a great menu, it was hard to pick just one item and friendly staff. They were a little slow but very friendly and it made for a relaxing lunch with our pouch by our feet. I had the Beatrice sandwich, loaded with turkey, swiss and sauerkraut accompanied by homemade potatoe chips and delicious slaw. My husband has a burger that was equally, if not more, delicious. It was great to find a place that has a great atmosphere and tempting bar food. We can't wait to come back and try the other enticing menu items like cornmeal calamari and funeral fries!

I absolutely without any reservations would recommend Norms Ale House and Eatery to any dog owner or dog lover (and everyone else for that matter)! This eatery has become a favorite for my husband and I since we can enjoy time out with friends and include our Basenji in on the fun. This has also been wonderful for our dog to get more experience with other dogs and unfamiliar people. The food is actually quite good in my opinion and much of the menu can be tweaked for those on a vegetarian diet (My husband and I both are vegetarian). My friend Katey assures me that the food with meat products in it is delicious too! They have a great variety of drink options also (beer, wine, specialty drinks, non-alcoholic). The service is always fast and the wait staff are so kind and sweet each time we are there. We have become such regulars now that in fact one of the waitresses recognizes our pup and we have had some great conversations with her during slower business hours. Saturdays are always quite busy so if you are looking for a quiet and mellow atmosphere I would urge you to check this place out a different day of the week. You have got to check this place out! It is awesome for a low-key, friendly dinner or drink!

I had a great time at Norm's! The service was quick and friendly, the food was warm when served to me. I got the Bacon, Avocado, Cheese Burger and it was delicious! The fries were super yummy as well. \r
I loved looking around and seeing a bunch of well behaved dogs in the bar too! Very cool. It was also pretty neat to see 40s of PBR in paper bags. \r
I had a great time singing happy birthday with the rest of the bar to the poor guy sitting at the next booth. I love that kind of banding together with a bunch of strangers to do something like that!

Norms is a great neighborhood pub- and not just because they are super dog friendly. Their alehouse salad & chicken chili (the secret ingredent is Peanut butter) combo is the best! But their burgers are a close tie- and for a real treat try their HOMEMADE potato chips. YUM But it can get busy later on in the evening... Especially on Trivia night.\r
Weekend Breakfast is a nice quiet event. The hash has every kind of meat & veggie you can imagine and my favorite is the Irish cut oatmeal. Yum! (but get coffee next door at Cafe Lladro)....\r
Try it... you AND rover will like it.

Norm's is a great place to stop at after work for a 40 oz. of PBR in a paper sack or another beer or drink. The drinks are pretty good and reasonable. The food is good as well. To my surprise, on the weekends, this typically slower-paced yet still popular bar really seems busy and a happening place. Great people watching and dogs are welcome (and often present) as much as their owners.

Truly the best burger in town. Great atmosphere. Dog friendly. Forties in a paper bag for happy hour. The decor well thought out and always very clean. Staff always so nice and inviting. A really, really great pub.

Being a Ducati motorcycle owner I'm always looking for the next great place to get on my bike and ride to. There just aren't that many stellar destinations in Seattle. Norm's stands out from the crowd with an incredibly friendly staff, excellent food, and great beers on the menu. It's always easy to walk in, sit at the bar, and strike up a friendly conversation with Michael or one of the other staff members. The food is way above standard pub fare and delivered quickly and hot. It's the place I always choose when it comes to meeting friends and to top it off, it's dog friendly. I attended a PAWS fundraiser there earlier this year and it was a total hoot. For a step out of the ordinary in pubs, definitely try Norm's!!

I have been to Norm's for some great birthday parties, it's relaxed, with nice servers and reasonable prices. There is good room for seating large parties. The only slip-up was when the server told us that we had to start tipping her better, which in the service industry is completely unacceptable. Maybe she was having a bad night?! Overall it should be kept in mind for low-key nights out.

Dog friendly, smoke free, good happy hour joint. Order the funeral fries with Norm's Chicken Chili and cheese. Excellent selection of beer and I've always had good service. Free parking too, which in Fremont is hard to find!

Norm's is a great place for a group of friends to go out and drink when they want to actually hear each other speak. One of my favorite places to sit in the summer is at Norm's tall tables along the front when the windows are all open. It satisfies the tastes of everyone: beer, good wine list, cocktails, food and snacks, and don't forget that forties of PBR are available. They will even give you a paper bag. How fun is that?

The CitySearch review above is actually fairly accurate. Norm's is indeed a relaxed, comfortable place. The beer selection is fine and the food (especially the burger) is very tasty. The waitstaff, while very friendly, are somewhat forgetful and through their confusion mixed up one drink and two food orders on our last visit.
