The Norwegian

We are a small crew of people operating a brunch pub and live music venue in Rockford, IL. We hope you'll visit. Skål!

The Norwegian's menu features a mix of Scandinavian and soul foods - eggs Benedict, Akvavit-cured gravlax, organic salads, smoky mac and cheese, locally roasted coffee, elderberry mimosas, and old-time cocktails.

Visit for a schedule of live music and other events.
