Norman Rudy's Pub




40900 Tantalus Road


$15 - $26

Norman Rudy’s serves American cuisine on a picturesque Canadian golf course setting in Brackendale.

The menu brings master quality to standard fare, resulting in things like crispy avocado fries that you wish never ended. Find a little comfort in classics like a gooey grilled cheese, burgers of all different sorts, sandwiches, or spice it up with the tuna rice bowl or vegetable curry.

I don’t know when Asian dishes suddenly became mainstream on North American menus, but I’m so glad it did.

Anyway, when you come to Norman Rudy’s you’re bound to have a delicious time. Indoors you’ll find big screen TVs with your favorite sports game, or perhaps trivia questions if you show up on the mega-popular trivia night. Ample seating and comfortable seats greet each customer, but many opt to sit outside on the patio in front of built-in fire pits.

And if you feel like paying the owners a personal compliment, and ask your server to speak to Norman, well, you might get a time…

Norm and Rudy were two local rescue dogs who brought a great deal of joy to the families who adopted them, and subsequently became the inspiration for this spot’s name.

Cat’s out of the bag: two dogs.
