Description: 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.

....downtown Napa location...casual/good service...got there at noon/by the time we left at 1:30 place was packed....sat inside but there's outdoor seating too...great day to sit outside but jackhammers going full blast a few feet away(turning one-way streets into two-way) prevented it. Hubby got a cheeseburger...I had the fish sandwich...we split 1/2 order of fries....everything VERY good/fresh & tasty....got desserts to go/special coconut cake with strawberries & lemon souffle...both yummy! Full bar/sports on the tv's.

We recently were staying in Napa, and wanted a casual, yet nice lunch, and we stumbled into The Norman Rose Tavern.

Very cool vibe with a nice bar. Hubs and I elected to sit at the bar and the bartender was very nice and attentive. I had a Cosmo to drink and ordered the Fried Chicken Sandwich. Hubby had beer and a burger.

I have to say, this was the best Chicken Sandwich I have ever had in my life. Oh, also, we ordered chili cheese fries. Obviously we were not dieting!!!! Hubby's burger was great too. This place is a gem in downtown Napa.

We ate here on our first night in Napa.

Service was excellent, food was good quality, good choice of drinks, only negative was perhaps the portion side was on the small side.

Would definitely return here
