Norseman Gallery resturant is an exceptional great resturant that you do not expect to find in a rural area. I have eaten there about 10 times and each time I have thoroughly enjoyed my meal. There have a unique menu that serves non traditional food.

We focus on organic , fresh and local cuisine.. nothing processed. We have vegetarian choices like butternut squash , sweet potato with fresh ginger,roasted root vegetable, wild mushroom and others, salad made with arugula and kale, stir fry's, pastas, etc. We serve everything from local (mussels ,snow crab, lobster, cod fish, scallops, shrimp, halibut, mackerel, capelin, calamari, etc) .Local lamb, Fresh chicken with bone in and skin on., grade A tenderloin beef, pork and so many more choices. We use the local berries that ground in the area for the desserts. We only open from Late May until Mid September because that is when the food we serve is Fresh and available. We prefer not to open after later because it would compromise the quality of what we are trying to achieve and prefer not to serve over process chemically altered food.
